Photography

Photography and digital media sit alongside my passion for Travel. By combining the three I am able to follow a life I love with a job I adore.

Capturing the little moments in life is as important to me as lavish landscapes or world famous landmarks. Find some of the more photo heavy destination posts and stories here or click here for photography tips or check out the camera gear I use.
