Steeped in the history of the Indonesian archipelago, the Spice Islands holds an allure of untold riches to those keen to make passage there. Anywhere on this planet where ocean meets land form, the opportunity for a surfer to find her own riches is endless.
Video wrap up of an amazing night. Engaging with community is a founding belief of mine and I am so thankful to everyone who turned up to share in the evening.
Thankyou to Sustainable Surf Collab, Panamuna Project, Tracks Magazine, Surfrider Foundation and Balter Beer for the support.

Super stoked to photograph the biggest and most comprehensive all women's wetsuit guide with The Mermaid Society. Had a blast in Byron Bay with super surfers Tarnea O'meara and Britt Nicholl. Thanks to Sally Mac at TMS for all the support and the awesome day!

It was a pleasure to attend the Sally Fitzgibbons Foundation Celebration of Australian Women in Surf at the Novotel Manly Pacific over the weekend.
Listening to all the stories from female surfing greats like Pam Burridge and Layne Beachley is a never ending source of inspiration as well as learning opportunity. So many of these women fought external as well as internal battles that have shaped the landscape for other women in surfing to be able to have the careers we have to today, as well as for females in general to be treated equally in the water at any level of surfing from social to professional level.
Thank you to Canon Australia for having me. It is a pleasure to be part of group that so strongly supports women in surfing.
What an incredible evening of fun at the Brewing Local Artists 2017 art exhibition at the Burleigh Brewing taphouse. Getting involved with the local artist community is one of my biggest passions. Seeing so many cool different art styles and getting to show off my own photography is always such an honour. My favourite artists on the evening were Tamara Armstrong and Go Suga, two distinctly different art styles, but each so captivating.
I chose to show surf images taken in ambient light, after sunset from the Gold Coast. It is always a challenge shooting in low light. Some of the exposures from that evening were over 2 seconds, which is a phenomenal challenge in a moving body of water and capturing a moving subject (the surfer).
Thanks to Burleigh Brewing for having me on the evening and for taking the time to support our arts community.
My camera feels like an extension of my arm, so showing people the ropes ended up coming quite naturally to me. It was such a pleasure meeting the diverse group of surf and camera enthusiasts. It goes to show that surfing and photography are such inclusive pastimes. I was so excited to see the enthusiasm from young and old in learning new skills and having the opportunity to try all of Canon’s latest camera gear!
The film festival is such a highlight for Noosa. With so many awesome events including arts and music at the Thomas Surfboards factory, surfboard shaping with Andrew Warhurst, and of course the film screenings including our feature Women In Surf Series, there is no better reason to put Noosa in the calendar every October!
Super excited to be a part of this year's BREWING LOCAL ARTISTS. BLA! at the Burleigh Brewing Co Taphouse
Starting at 5pm on October 7, come down and check out some very talented Gold Coast artists!

"I like photograhing textured surfaces and symmetry. I'm also a fan of moody, emotional landscapes. I like photographing anything that captivates and moves me from within. And wild horses. I like photographing wild horses"
Thanks to the lovely folks over at BIKINI.COM for the interview!
"... When I’m looking to create something, I do already have an idea of how long the edit is going to be, and I tend not to go over that. I think it’s actually helpful to creativity as it helps focus the direction, and puts a premium on quality too."

"I spend my time with people I like, in an environment that I love, doing something I'm passionate about. There are no limits in this job. You can push yourself to physical, creative and mental extremes. Stagnation only exists when you allow it."
Super stoked to be interviewed by Mimi and the team at RedBull. Thanks guys!
Proud to unveil the short surf film Mood which explores our changing moods showcased by three of the world's most talented up and coming female longboarders Roisin Carolan, Ivy Thomas and Hallie Rohr. This short film was produced for the Coastalwatch/Surfing World film competition Reelers. Hope you all enjoy! And of course, feel free to share.
"I don’t like rules and I don’t like boring. Simply, I take photos I want to see. The photos I take, I want to be excited and interested by."
Very honoured to be interviewed by Still Stoked who has been at the forefront of promoting women in action sports since before it was cool. Have a read below of my unfiltered thoughts on close to, well, everything! Thanks again Still Stoked!
Why by cold when you can be warm? That’s my favorite motto. With the impending winter greeting me on the Gold Coast of Australia, it seemed only fitting to make my way to warmer waters. California, New York, Spain, Portugal, France, Mexico…a whirlwind trip photographing the world’s finest loggers. Trim is in.
