My Approach to life
Two of my core values are respect and compassion, and I am eternally grateful to the people I have in my life now and to those who have been part of my life to date for enabling me to be the person I am today. Human connection is important to me, whether it’s meeting someone briefly to talk business or pleasure, sharing ideas or experiencing a common interest. In these moments I believe that it’s important to be present and in the moment. There is so much we can learn from others and sharing ideas and experiences. I am also passionate about helping others to learn, thrive and pursue their own passions.
To live simply and sustainably and to help others to learn, follow their passions, grow and thrive.
I have always felt a strong connection to the outdoors, always finding peace being in and amongst nature. Be it walking through tall eucalyptus forests, watching waterfalls, sitting by lakes or the beach. I’m not daunted by the extremes our seasons can bring, so I can be found out in the elements at any time of day. Since my late teens I have had a camera in my hand or not far away. Admittedly there have been times where my passion for photography and the outdoors has ebbed and flowed against other demands of my time in my life.
I’m now back in the grip of these passions and wholehearted pursuing them, investing much of my energy and time to improving and expanding my photography skills. Stretching myself and trying new genres as well as sharing my images and knowledge with others. I am self taught and I firmly believe in learning by experience and experimentation. I have taken a lot of not so good images, and have taken images that I am very happy with! Along the way I have taken away many lessons, that have helped me grow personally, and improve my photography.
