MY NEWS AND ESCAPADES

For a short time every year the trees in Cradle Mountain National Park take on autumn colour, a scene that is stunning. I recently came back from Tasmania spending a month travelling around and building an itinary for a tour next year. I also made sure I arrived in time for fagus week and was not disapointed with what I saw. I did a lot of walking on many of the tracks in Cradle Mountain National Park so I knew what would best suit a group next year. I also travelled to several other parts of Tassie doing exactly the same thing a reconnaissance for a tour. Overall it was great weather but of course being Tasmania I always expeceted a mixed bag of good and bad weather. I love it over there and what I liked the most was the unexpected and all the walking trails some easy some extreme and the challenge of a completely different environment from where I live here in the outback of South Australia. 

I am currently finalising the itinary for the trip and am excited about taking people over to Tassie and getting them in to some key locations. If your interested in coming along in 2017 please subscribe to my newsletter and I will notify of the dates when they are online and bookings can be made to hold your space. You dont want to miss this trip its going to be fantastic.

Hope to see you there in 2017.

Late last year I was approached by a Professor at Western Sydney University inviting me to contribute a chapter in a book that is currently underway called the Handbook of Women and Outdoor Learning. I was a bit dubious about writing a chapter. I actually thought to myself what have I got to offer that people want to read about. Upon talking to Tonia on the phone I actually have quite a bit to contrbute about my quiet journey to the top of my profession from start to now. I wont say finish because I am definately not there yet!

The other concern was that I am not a writer and was not sure where to start or how to put it down and this is still a concern for me but I have decided to give it go as Tonia said to me its time we got up and told our stories as strong independant women. Although I am the only photographer invited to contrbute there are a few other creative and academic women writing their stories also.

I am currently writing my chapter with no title at this stage I trust that will come to me as I keep writing.

One of my images possibly my image called 'GRAVEYARD' which was a finalist in the National Geographic Competition in 2013 will also be used on the cover of this book which I believe should be published later in the year.

I have just done an interview with Better Photography India. India's most popular photography magazine. The theme was astro-photography. The image they chose to publish was a shot taken on Lake Eyre amidst a very large storm front. This particular image was a finalist in the Astro Photography Competition last year in the UK. See the PDF attached with a selection of Photgraphers and their images.
