See the world through my lens. I am a self-taught amateur photographer and website designer from Bairnsdale, Victoria in Australia. My goal is to capture the enchanting atmospheres that I encounter on my journeys, searching through nature’s harshness and brutality to find its unfathomable beauty.
I am most creative when wandering alone through the wilderness, being in complete isolation makes me feel more connected to the natural world, and to myself.
Travelling around the south island of New Zealand has been the highlight of my photographic journey so far. Photos can't come close to capturing the dreamlike beauty of that place, I could stay there forever exploring the mountainous landscapes and ancient forests.
Nature is my first inspiration. It is a place of great beauty and mystery, but it is not only the visible world that inspires my photography. There are many other sources of inspiration such as Norse mythology, the works of JRR Tolkien, the life of Dick Proenneke, along with music from bands like Agalloch, Wolves in the Throne Room, Drudkh, October Falls, Summoning, Altar of Plagues and Caladan Brood.
When I'm not out taking photos I'm often making medieval chainmail armour and jewellery for my hobby business, Morthond Armour.
Please contact me if you would like to purchase any of my photos as fine art prints.
