I’ll be living and working remotely in the North Kimberley for 5 and a half months. For all things Kimberley, Mitchell Plateau and Wet Season photography shenanigans you’ll find me posting over here: www.lifeontheplateau.com.au

The Gibb & Beyond | 2020 Calendar

If a picture speaks a thousand words my new Gibb River Road calendars tell a story 6 years in the making.

I reach for the camera and the hunt for a perfect sunrise photo begins – that exciting and frustrating chase for a perfect image, a perfect Kimberley moment captured in time – an image that captures the place not only as I see it but as I feel it.
