NSW South Coast - The Great Escape

NSW South Coast - The Great Escape
Along with other areas of Australia, the NSW South Coast was decimated by the bushfires earlier in the year. Over the last few months the NSW South Coast, like many regional communities, has also been significantly impacted by COVID-19.

2020 - The Year Ahead
What a challenging start to 2020 we have had. From raging bush fires to a global pandemic. It is completely understandable for people to be feeling overwhelmed and anxious at the moment. Unlike previous years where I write my photography goals in a moleskin notebook and keep them to myself, this year I have decided to write this blog post in order to keep myself accountable and share my experience. In the current environment some of my intended goals I will be able to start on, however, others will provide me with something to look forward to when we eventually arrive at some kind of normality and social distancing is no longer a necessity to protect our community.

Vagabond Photographic - Escape & Create

I was recently part of the very first Vagabond Photographic Escape and Create South Coast Gathering and I wanted to share my story about why I became involved with Vagabond and my experience at this first event. The concept for the event was to bring together a great bunch of like-minded creatives for a weekend of photography, adventure, and inspiration. It certainly did not disappoint! There was a fantastic lineup of talented Creative Guides covering ocean photography, landscape photography and travel/lifestyle photography. Warren Keelan and Shannon Glasson were the ocean masters; Amber Cree and her phenomenal family - Keenan, Indigo and Coco...
