I would like to acknowledge Australia’s First Peoples, and pay my respects to elders both past and present from the lands on which I photograph and create stories. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are advised that this blog may contain images and voices of people who have passed away.
It’s fabulous that you’ve dropped in … thanks for taking the time. I’m very interested to hear your thoughts so don’t be shy, leave a comment. My basecamp is Queensland, Australia. I am a senior executive for social and health services with 30 years experience, now freelancing as a photojournalist and community consultant. I focus on humanitarian and social-documentary photography and undertake a broad range of community consultancies. Working for editorial, Government, NGO and commercial clients as well as on self-assigned projects across Oceania. I create positive images and narratives that raise awareness, empower humanity and inspire social change. In 2014/15 I travelled to Nepal and Vanuatu. In 2016 my assignments will take me to Thailand and keep me home in Australia.
*My work is inspired by and is a tribute to my Grandmother, an Aboriginal woman from Bundjalung country. The Bundjalung people are the original custodians of the northern coastal areas of New South Wales, an area which includes the Bundjalung National Park and Mount Warning … Nana’s country!*
