  1. Kauai, 2019

    26 Aug 2019
    Due to the expensiveness of America, and the poorness of flight quality from Vancouver we didn’t arrive until almost midnight - with just enough time to hire a car as they closed for the evening. To save ourselves 300 bucks, knowing that we were only going to get up in…

  2. Lisboa, 2018

    03 May 2019
    It’s the most wonderful time of the year - EUROVISION! Where else would I have been, but the host city for 2018 Lisboa!  My week in Lisboa consisted of mainly one thing - gorging myself on the native delicacy - pastel de nata… By weeks end I was beginning to…

  3. La Palma, 2018

    06 Mar 2019
    Sun surf and sand… that’s what I’ve been dreaming of! When I went to Lazarote last year I immediately fell in love with it - so much natural volcanic landscapes and barren areas ripe for exploration. I’d seen plenty of pictures of other Canary Islands; Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura… all…

  4. Marrakech, 2018

    18 Oct 2018
    When you live in London you find yourself craving one thing - the sun! The warmth it gives you, the dryness of the air, the blueness of the skies. So this winter I decided to go somewhere dry and warm, give myself those desert-y vibes!  I’d been interested in going…

  5. Venice, 2018

    25 Sep 2018
    Venezia! How beautiful. Apparently the worst time of year to visit is summertime (so of course when did I go?): the locals all leave, it becomes overrun with tourists, and Venice is said to smell like a sewer in the heat. Although nice and hot (enjoying the European heatwave) I…

  6. Scotland, 2017

    18 Aug 2018
    Ach aye! We’re goo-ing oot and aboot. (Nailed it). Continuing my quest to visit all of the UK I find myself finally visiting Scotland. My best friend Ellen was finally visiting from Melbourne so we took the opportunity to head north.  We decided pretty early on that we would do…

  7. Ireland, 2017

    11 Jul 2018
    Roadtrip!! In my quest to tick off the full UK the gang and I set out on a cute little trip across Ireland! Does it matter that technically I went to the wrong Ireland for my UK checklist? Definitely not! We flew into Cork, the nearest city to where Matty’s…

  8. Oslo, 2016

    24 Jun 2018
    One of my first visitors in the UK was my amazing Japanese friend Yuko, visiting me all the way from Hiroshima! Yuko spent about 3 weeks exploring London but we also both wanted to go and see something cool in Europe and the flights to Oslo were cheap as chips…

  9. Ukraine, 2017

    01 Jun 2018
    Eurovision brought me to a city I never considered visiting - Kyiv. A city I very quickly fell in love with.  Obviously Eurovision wasn’t quite going to match up to the previous year’s Swedish Eurovision dream, but the city of Kyiv definitely has a lot to offer. The architecture is…

  10. Stockholm, 1944

    04 May 2018
    Eurovision! In Sweden!! A Swedish Eurovision has been my dream since I first began watching, and it was such an amazing thing for it to be my first one too. Sure, Russia WAS robbed in 2015, but nobody does a Eurovision party quite like the Swedes. To give you an…

  11. Melbourne, 2017

    05 Apr 2018
    Home time! My first time visiting home in 2 years. It gave me a good chance to spend some quality time with the things that truly mattered… many, many bird + brie burgers from Grill’d. Oh how I missed them! But seriously, it was great to come home to all…

  12. Brussels, 2016

    04 Mar 2018
    Brussels, land of the worlds best chocolate truffles and waffles! Obviously a good portion of my travel was dedicated the eating those two things - absolutely no regrets I chose to visit Brussels for no other reason than it being an easy destination to head to. Like Paris, you’re able…

  13. Rome, 2017

    19 Feb 2018
    If you ever want to go on a diet that is exclusively gelato and pizza for an entire week, I can (from experience) recommend a trip to Italy! I think the only meal I ate outside of those foods was a cheese/meat/bread and wine night…. and let’s be honest that’s…

  14. Lanzarote, 2017

    07 Jan 2018
    Lanzarote had always been quite high on my travel list, and in the pictures below you’ll see why. The island of Lanzarote forms part of the Canary Islands, an archipelago that is technically Spanish (but absolutely nowhere near Spain, instead it’s about 100km from Africa), which has a volcanic origin…

  15. Hamburg, 2016

    17 Dec 2017
    Christmas!! In Germany!! A 5am flight before a 7am working day!! CHRISTMAS It was December 2016, and team VM UK decided to have a weekend away to the winter wonderland that is Hamburg. Most of Europe has amazing Christmas markets through the holiday season, but something about a German Christmas…

  16. Paris, 2016-17

    04 Dec 2017
    Paris! The city of love, or so they say. Being so, so easy to get to has made it a regular jaunt for me in London. A two hour train journey direct from the city centre makes it a quicker journey than Scotland or Ireland, or even most of England…

  17. Náttúra.

    08 Jun 2016
    Before I left for the UK I worked on this series of nude portraits. Entitled Náttúra, the works were twists on camouflage in a way that focussed on form rather than colours and patterns - think seeds, foetuses, waves, roots, plants, etc.  As this was winter, my models were enduring…

  18. TFC.

    06 Apr 2016
    Melanie awaiting her glamour shot. Sam starving himself. Sam and I collaborated for his TFC project in late 2014. When he approached me with the concepts originally I was thrilled - he gave me a shit tonne of freedom with the images along with the brief. The core of the…

  19. Cynical Fashion with Memphis.

    19 Jan 2016
    Our cover! Working/Freezing Hello 2016! We open with my first ever cover (excluding Koko ii) which is really exciting. 2015 started with Memphis and I getting a series published and now 12 months later here we are proudly revealing our cover shoot.  We brainstormed the shoot when we did our…

  20. 2015, The Year That Was.

    11 Dec 2015
    It feels like I just closed my eyes in a tepee at Falls Festival, and suddenly now it’s December! The year has flown by, so here is a cute little look back at the year with some of my favourite/most memorable moments. January saw the Tasmania blog, which focussed on…

  21. Sacha Half Moon Bay.

    11 Nov 2015
    Before I left I squeezed in one last collaboration with Sacha! I’d been inspired by how beautiful Half Moon Bay was after spending so much time away from it, and we were collaborating with Elana Pandelides. People familiar with my work over the years have probably seen a few things…

  22. Mobile Travel.

    22 Oct 2015
    Here’s a collection of some of my favourite mobile photography shots so far. Fellow creative Thomas Lim inspired me during our interview for Koko Mag III (read that here). These images have all been shot in ProCamera8 and then edited with VSCOcam. Enjoy! England.Most of these images were shot in…

  23. MAN-akin.

    09 Sep 2015
    June saw a collaboration I’ve been hoping to work on come to life! Shauny Ben-Natan, who I went to high school with in Sandringham, and I have finally teamed up for a shoot! We’ve always wanted to collaborate, so we made the most of it when the time arrived. You…
