Swedish Snow Day

My daughter Hazel loves playing outside. Coming from Australia, snow is not a normal part of outside play, but she didn’t take long to fall in love with it! Snow balls, snow men, snow angels and sledding – perfect for a little girls play time! #snow #portrait #portraiture #sledding #snowstorm #nikon #kids #children #outdoors #adventure…

Dried Fish in the Markets of Bukavu

I love walking through markets in far away places. A well constructed mound of whole dried fish may not be a huge money maker back home, but on the streets of Bukavu in the DR Congo this won’t last long at all. #photojournalism #photography #fish #food #delicious #portrait #congo #congolese #drc #africa #market #delicacy #nikon…

A Portrait of Eero

I met @eeropu here @ywamrestenas. I love his creativity and passion for beautiful things. After completing his DTS I got to photograph the graduating class.

Honey!

Looking through some old photos this morning and I came across this. I took this while studying years ago. Of all the photos I took at school, this is one of my favorites and it was shot on a wood bench in my backyard. Simple is often best! #food #honey #stilllife #photography #delicious #beautiful #nikon…

Wetland Sunset onthe Beautiful Kangaroo Island

I was on Kangaroo Island, running out of time to find the right place to photograph the rapidly approaching sunset. After climbing fences, wading through mud and wandering over scrublands I finally settled on this peaceful wetlands scene. I think it was worth the trouble. #adventure #photography #nikon #d800e #landsacape #landscape_lovers #photography #kangarooisland #southaustralia #wetlands…

Peaceful Istanbul

Experiencing the beauty of Istanbul in the peace of the early morning. I love the rising sun highlighting the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. It’s the most beautiful time with just a few people out cleaning and preparing for another busy tourist day. #Nikon #istanbul #turkey #tourist #tourism #bluemosque #sultanahmet #travelphotography #travel #photojournalism #photooftheday #streetphotography #sunrise #city…

Pt Willunga, Australia
