Bio

I am a professional photojournalist and expedition leader that specialises in coverage of some of the world’s most remote and isolated places.

My work has been published in numerous different publications, websites, information and interpretive centres, newspapers and marketing material internationally. I am a freelance contributor to the following journals:

  • Australian Geographic
  • Ocean Geographic
  • Asian Geographic
  • The Journal of the Royal Geographical Society
  • Africa Geographic

My business currently maintains a stock image library of over 3,000 images from some of the most beautiful and unseen corners of the world.

Each year I travel to between 12 and 16 countries to lead and co-lead expeditions or cover stories for travel, conservation and the preservation of indigenous cultures.

 

GENERAL EXPERTISE

My skills are broad and include the ability to operate satellite communications, marine and two-way radios. I am a professional driver of vehicles and small boats and I have extensive logistical knowledge for expeditions, particularly those taking place in remote areas.

FIRSTS

I was the first female photographer to ever work professionally on Heard Island in Antarctica and the first female photographer in the world to capture a full wild snow leopard hunt in images. In 2017 I became the first professional photographer to create an ethnographic portrait of the women of Ladakh in the Indian Himalaya.
