Good morning!!! Yes it's still morning in Sydney where I'm currently lounging and catching up on work! Oh man, so much to do after finishing my online course. Basically I'm free for a bit from work trips to spend some time on the Travel Bootcamp and in less than a week to take a holiday. (I'm going to Hong Kong with Dreamboat 😱😱) The Bootcamp is creeping up on us and is in like three weeks time. Who has their ticket? I'm actually really curious, who wants to come but hasn't bought a ticket yet and what's stopping you? I might start breaking down some of these reasons and trying to help! 😍😍 I love the Bootcamp, it's my fave thing 👉🏻 @thetravelbootcamp . Photo from Japan, from a recent work trip. Sakura is 👌🏻🌸🌸🌸

For the past ten days I've been working at home with a filmmaker producing my first online course, a beginner photography course that I've been negotiating for 18 months and working on all year. It is the hardest and scariest thing I've ever done and the second time I've really put myself out there in the world by investing my own money, time and efforts into something I believe in. (The other time is obviously my Travel Bootcamp conference.) To people on the outside looking in, I know that I have the type of personality that makes it all seem easy but I have self doubt too. Running a business, admitting to the world that you have ambition and putting yourself out there daily is hard. Like most people, I don't know what the fuck I'm doing most of the time but I founded a business based on passion and I truly, truly believe that when passion and a desire to help others is at the heart of what you do, you can't lose. Thanks to @filmenor for taking on this project at the last minute and bringing more to it than I ever thought possible. Your vision and hard work will be on display throughout the course. Thanks to @passion_io for choosing me to be the very first photographer in their stable of successful online teachers and thanks to the team at @olympus_au for always believing in me and supporting me daily. Kristie, I appreciate you so much. Finally, thanks to my family for losing their home for 10 days while it transformed into a studio. Hope to see some of you at my instameet today now that I'm out of filming jail. See previous post if you want to come!

Who wants to have an instameet? I'm here on the Gold Coast and I've got channel 9 coming next week to film a piece on me. I really want to show off the awesome Instagram community on the Gold Coast and surrounds so I've decided to have a last minute instameet at the Spit Main Beach. So, if you don't mind being on TV and you want to hang out then we'll meet on Monday afternoon at 4:00 PM at the Spit Kiosk. I'll geotag it on this post. Please let me know if you're coming too. Sorry for the last minute warning and the fact it's in business hours but I hope you can all make it! That's Monday in two days, the 17th. 4:00 PM! Xxx

Good morning! Or should I say, a VERY early good morning as I've been up since 4:15 AM this morning! 😩😩😩 I've just got a last couple of Tassie shots to share and then I can tell you all about what I've been up to. 😂😂 I shot this image in Hobart just before the start of the Ogah-Ogah procession and to the sounds of the Siren Song. I don't even know how to define the Siren Song, it comes from a helicopter each afternoon on dusk and it's eerie! I hope you all have a bigger sleep in than me and an awesome day. I'll catch up on comments today. 😘😘😘😘 @tasmania @dark_mofo darkmofo

I've been wondering how I can sum up Tasmania's annual Dark Mofo event in a single photo and a caption and it's so hard! I'm actually at a loss for words on how to explain the incredible vibe on the streets of Hobart and surrounds during the festival. It's dark. It's unexpected. It's exhilarating. There's a thrill around every corner. I'm not even going to try to define it, there's a website for that. All I'll say is that Dark Mofo is one of the coolest things I've ever done and I've done a lot of cool things. I don't know what date it's on next year but I do know to count back from the winter solstice by two weekends to make a prediction. And I will be there next year. When I put together my Steller story I'll have more photos and a breakdown of some of the events I did. @tasmania @dark_mofo darkmofo

Good morning!! I'm sorry, I have to share another shot of Mt Wellington at sunrise. Mt Wellington is one of my favorite places to shoot in Tasmania! Here's my advice though, when you go up here for a shoot you should literally be prepared for any weather scenario. It might be hot, it might be cool and it might snow! 😳❄️ It's also usually windy so dress appropriately with wind proof and warm gear so you can relax and enjoy the scenery or the shooting. I'm always surprised when people are worried about cold weather but I know I always used to be. Honestly guys, it's all about what you wear. Be prepared and layered up and the weather is not even as issue. If you go to Tasmania in the middle of winter it's cold. But it's incredible! 😱😍❤️ @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

Who's eating Sunday brunch right now? I wish I was right here at Ginger Brown in Hobart eating all of these delightful things. Instead I'm stuck indoors working and just dreaming of Tasmania! Lol. One of my favorite things about Tassie is honestly the food and wine. It seems unfair that one destination can be so damn stunning AND have cool events like Dark Mofo AND have the most incredible light AND have a food scene! I mean, what else do you want Tasmania? This was probably my favorite breakfast in Tasmania, and that includes a banana dipped in peanut butter at Marion's Lookout Cradle Mountain. 🍌🥜😂 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

I have another really exciting thing to share about my trip to Tasmania, I got to stay at the BRAND NEW "MACq 01" hotel in Hobart, the worlds first storytelling hotel. For those that don't pay attention to what goes on in Australian tourism, this is a big deal! The property has introduced a lot of new beds into this fast growing destination and the property is amazing. Every single room is themed and the attention to detail and service was great! Plus, the place is right in the thick of all the action during Dark Mofo! Although I have to wait a whole year for Dark Mofo I'll be booking my trip for next year soon! @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

What did I love about staying at Peppers in Cradle Mountain? Number one, the food! There's actually a Michelin Star chef in the kitchen, out at Cradle Mountain! 😱😱 Number two, a fireplace in the room! Omg, I love fire. And to make things even better the fire is fully built each day by a pro and all you have to do is strike a match to get it started. Number 3, home made cookies in the room! Yes I partook. 😂😂🍪🍪 And finally, number four, there are outdoor hot tubs in the King Billy Suites. 😱😱😱 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

Comment from Lauren Bath | Australia:


When I was in Cradle Mountain I was enticed into doing TWO hikes, not one but two! Day one was the more difficult Hanson's Peak hike, which is quite steep in parts. It took us 90 minutes to get to the top and it was unfortunately too cloudy to shoot sunrise! (I was up at 3:30 AM to be there on time too! 😱😱) Day two we decided on the easier Marion's Lookout but it still wasn't that easy, at least to me. 😂😂 I calculated that we did 23km of walking and half of it was uphill. Lol. Anyway we did get luckier at Marion's and were treated to this glorious sunrise over the mountains. Worth it? I say yes. Despite my grumbling at all of the exercise it truly is days like those that make me most grateful for my job. @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

One of my favorite things about Tasmania is the absolute abundance of wildlife and this is never more apparent than in Cradle Mountain! We saw loads of wallabies of course, plus wombats, but the coolest animal we saw was a spotted tail quoll and I couldn't get a shot! I hope this cutie wombat makes up for it. They're sooooooo cute!! @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

Wineglass Bay isn't the only stunning bay in Tasmania and we were lucky to fly over Maria Island and other amazing scenery on our way there. Maria Island is only 20km in length and doesn't appear to have many inhabitants at all from the air, the only full time residents are park rangers but tourists do visit this special place. There is a ferry service from nearby Triabunna or you can choose to fly over with Par Avion like we did. 😍😍😍 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

From Tasmania to Queenstown and back to Tasmania ... I'm back to share more of my Tassie shots now that I'm home and catching up on life after the most incredible month. Ordinarily I don't have as many trips so close together but the opportunity to do three incredible events back to back was too good to pass up. Thanks Vivid, Dark Mofo and Winterfest! For those that haven't been to Tasmania, these are the views overlooking Hobart from Mount Wellington and I also convinced Melissa Findley to pose on the rocks for me. We had such a delightful stay and really got into the winter vibes, I think I honestly have photos to share for weeks from this trip. @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

Good morning!! This is another shot that is something completely different for me and another feature I've been experimenting with on my Olympus, high resolution mode. I was up the top of the gondola at Skyline Queenstown shooting sunset when I decided to try for a darker shot, the streets look so rad from up there! I stuffed something up and only recorded a jpeg of the image but I think it came up really well! And it's super high res! 😱😱 After this shot I had the buffet dinner and it was one of the best buffets I've ever had in my life! I recommend the place! 😘😘 @QueenstownNZ QueenstownLive

Okay, so this shot isn't perfect. There's a little bit of haloing (is that a word?) around the clouds and mountain BUT I wanted to share it because I had a creative epiphany when I was shooting it! I really wanted to shoot this bend in the road on the way to Remarkables but I only had my ski bag on me, I didn't have my filters. The sky was too bright to pull a long exposure and it was taking roughly 3 minutes for a car to transition through the whole scene. I decided to play around with the Live Composite feature on my Olympus to achieve the effect I wanted and it worked!! Because it was getting brighter by the minute I did notice some of the halo effect in the back of the scene but I was still seriously impressed because this is a really difficult scene for most cameras to handle. It was so dark in the foreground and so bright in the sky. To achieve this shot with no filters is amazing! Anyway, hope you like it. Have a great Friday. @QueenstownNZ QueenstownLive

Good morning! How amazing is light? I could honestly sit and watch the sun play over the mountains like this all day! I shot this from Coronet Peak in Queenstown just before the first night of night skiing opened for the season! The night skiing is super fun and I recommend the new bar off the M1 for a beer and some hip hop tunes. 🙊🍻 The secret to drinking beer whilst night skiing is to only drink one! One makes you a much better skier and two make you a much worse skier, there's nothing in between. 😂⛷😂 @QueenstownNZ QueenstownLive

Queenstown is about more than just mountains you guys! As much as I love to ski I also love to eat and explore and I wanted to share one of my favorite new discoveries in Queenstown, Bespoke Kitchen! When you've had enough Ferg Burgers to last a lifetime (pfft, as if that could ever happen) and you're looking for some more options you have to try this place! There are heaps of healthy options but also a few cheeky treats too, and the coffee is great. Queenstown is constantly changing and every time I go back it seems there are amazing new restaurants and activities. I wish I never had to leave! 😩😩😩 @QueenstownNZ QueenstownLive

Good morning from Queenstown New Zealand! Everyone I've showed this photo to so far hasn't liked it so I thought I'd test it out on Instagram. Call it my obstinance! 😂😂 It might seem a little abstract but this photo is almost the definition of why I love the mountains. The image itself is of trees on the hillside with clouds moving in. To me this evokes the mystery of the mountains, the light, the clouds, the constant change, the motion and the feeling. I hope at least some of you like it. 🙊🌲🌲🌲🌤❄️🌬Shot across the road from my awesome hotel, Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel. 😍❤️🔥 @QueenstownNZ QueenstownLive

What a day!! We started here at Meiklejohns Bay for sunrise and then had a fun day enjoying the Winter Festival. The Jucy "Undy 500" was a particular highlight, imagine a dozen guys in underwear competing in a race. 😏😂 Then it was time for a quick bite and time to prepare for NIGHT SKIING! Although it's super early in the season it's still better to be on the slopes than anywhere else. To recap; photogenic jetty ruins, men in undies, food and night skiing. And beer. All the things.

I know that I've already shared an image taken from the helicopter over Wineglass Bay but I forgot to tell you I also had a heli trip over Mt Field and all the way to Lake St Clair! 😱😱😱 The amazing crew at Par Avion, and Tasmania of course, have spoiled us too much! If there's anything I love more than photographing glorious winter light it's photographing glorious winter light from the air! This particular scene was taken right on sunrise over Mt Field, the same place as the waterfall I shared yesterday. We were rugged up to have the doors off and Mel counted that she was wearing 17 layers of clothes. Lol. Even if you don't get up in the air in Tasmania (but you should because Par Avion is awesome), all of this is amazing by road too. 🚁🚗 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

Good morning!! This is Dove Lake in Cradle Mountain, one of my very favorite parts of Tasmania. Although Mel and I did two of the hikes in the area we also did this very short walk from the carpark down to the old boat shed. Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is stunning, and especially during winter when you can enjoy a wood fire in your room after a day of hiking and the outdoors. Unfortunately there was no snow whilst we were there but I'll definitely be heading back. One stat that I love about Cradle Mountain is that it can literally snow any day of the year there, they have had recorded snow on all the calendar days over the years. I would die to see snow out here, die! ❄️🌨😵😱 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

It's a waterfall! Not many of you actually know this but I am not that keen on photographing waterfalls! 😱😱 I know, I've broken the photographer rule, everyone I know loves shooting waterfalls. Melissa was so keen to get to Mt Field to check out Russel Falls and Horseshoe Falls (pictured) and I was kind of just ... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I agreed to go for a drive and then I kind of sat back while Mel drooled all over the waterfall and went crazy. As I was chilling and eating a Cliff bar I noticed some delightful afternoon winter light filtering through the canopy and deigned to snap a few frames. Hahaha. I actually really love this spot, seriously. It's an easy 20 minute walk to Russel Falls and then a slightly harder 20 minutes up to Horseshoe Falls. I think it was only slightly harder for me because of all the hiking I did in Cradle Mountain. Lol. Anywhoo, enjoy the serenity. @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle

Here's something a little different from me ... a shot of the Dark Mofo Winter Feast! By first, let me explain what Dark Mofo is in the first place. Dark Mofo is a winter festival hosted by MONA (the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart), which celebrates the winter solstice. There are a number of public and ticketed events as well as art installations everywhere, a nude swim, music and light and many more surprises. This year was the first year I've properly attended and I am hooked. I will be there at the festival next year with bells on if anyone wants to join me? The Winter Feast is a great hall filled with food providers and mystery. I ate all the things!! 😍😩❤️🔥🍷🌮🧀 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle WinterFeast

There's a bit of an AWESOME story behind this shot ... Melissa and I really wanted to shoot Wineglass Bay but we were in Hobart for Dark MOFO and making the trip down to Freycinet National Park would have meant sacrificing a night shooting the festival. It's truly so hard in Tasmania because there is so much to see and do and you want to fit it all in!! As I was re-jigging and shuffling the itinerary to fit everything in we were offered the opportunity to fly down to Wineglass with Par Avion and shoot from a helicopter. So rather than wake up at 3:00 AM for a 3 hour drive and a 1 hour hike we instead flew down like rockstars and I shot some of my favorite aerial images of my career. Tasmania, THANK YOU! Thank you for being so beautiful and for being beautiful people too. I hope that my shots do the location justice. @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle PS. If you want to see this wonderful part of Tassie I'd highly recommend a stay in Freycinet as the nearby hike has incredible views of the bay! The whole East Coast makes a wonderful road trip, I've done a fair bit of it myself.

I don't even know where to start posting, I'm too overwhelmed with experiences, images, food, art, culture, excitement, the outdoors and just everything! Some of you might remember that Tourism Tasmania was one of my first clients when I quit my chef job and Tasmania has remained a firm favorite Aussie destination since then, I know that I seem to have a lot of those. Haha. So I'm kicking off with a simple sunset from yesterday afternoon facing the city. The Winter light has been incredible all week so expect to see a lot like this! 😍😍 @Tasmania Discover TassieStyle
