"Thanks for stopping by"

I've been linked to the great outdoors and the allure of nature for longer than I can remember. After a military spell, of twelve years! I boarded the rollercoaster of adventure that is wildlife and landscape imaging, and never looked back. Adventurous highs and at times nerve wracking lows, experiences that money simply cannot buy have been the reward thus far. From exploring Bat and Snake filled caves on obscure Indonesian islands, being the first human to SCUBA dive on a pristine Micronesian reef or being stalked by Lions in Africa and more. I've been fortunate enough to witness events and situations that leave me in awe of the incredible beauty and diversity of our Earth's natural wonders. And that ride, the rollercoaster, isn't over yet, so buckle up, strap in and get ready for adventure....

A Timelapse Project to Highlight a Rising Issue.

As the saying goes; "Time and tide wait for no man". For most people the ideal of a paradise setting is epitomised by the lush vegetation and aesthetic of the island nations dotted around the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. 'Island Time' is the working title for a time-lapse project that aims to address the uncertain future these nations face as they stare down what is essentially the smoking barrel of a global warming gun. Set to cultural music and interspersed with accounts spoken in regional dialects of elders from 14 Pacific Nations, this film aims to shed light on the issue of rising sea levels. An issue we can no longer ignore.
