I am a Mont Ambassador, adventurer and a wilderness and landscape photographer based in Tasmania, Australia.

Tasmania has some of the finest untouched wilderness landscapes on Earth.

I invite you to enter and see Tasmania and other places on this wonderful planet from my perspective.

As a Mont Outdoor Equipment Ambassador I love using their high quality outdoor gear. I sincerely believe it is some of the best designed and highest quality gear available in Australia.  It never lets you down!

My next adventure.

Well, the plan WAS to fly to Siberia in February 2021 but now, courtesy of Covid 19 the timeline is to be there in the winter of 2022.  My destination is the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Baikal. This lake holds over 20% of the world’s liquid freshwater and is almost 700kms long by 80kms wide at its widest point. In February the very low temperatures freeze the whole lake and my intention is to walk a western section of the lake before crossing to the eastern side, a total distance of approximately 150kms on ice, solo. Temperatures can go as low as -40˚C at this time of year so a different system from normal travel is required to survive. 

It is an exciting prospect but I suspect a somewhat challenging one. This will make me the oldest (66 years) recorded person to have walked across the lake solo.

2016 Sermiligaq to Lake Fjord, East Greenland.

Expedition successful!We reached Lake Fjord, East Greenland on 2nd August, 2016. This was only the 4th kayak expedition to reach this point in the last 84 years! A brilliant trip with many memorable moments.

2017 Enterprise Island to Winter Island, Antarctica.

The 2016 Gino Watkins Greenland Expedition went really well. An awesome experience, we reached our objective without major incident and paddled through some stunning Greenland landscapes to reach the  British Arctic Air Route Expedition (BAARE) base. 

In February of 2017, I fly to Ushuaia in Argentina to board the yacht Icebird and sail to the Antarctic Peninsula with a group of 6 other paddlers and the two crew to explore the Peninsula by kayak and yacht and retrace as much as we can the routes and explorations of John Rymill and his men in 1934-1937 during the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) . This will likely be a challenging trip, but at the same time extremely rewarding.

Rymill took over Gino Watkins expedition in East Greenland after Watkin’s unfortunate death so there is a close connection between our expedition to Lake Fjord in East Greenland and Graham Land in Antarctica.

Back home now after an excellent adventure in Antarctica. Stunning, remote, cold and essentially, a very dangerous place to kayak but an adventure worth doing!

In 2011 I led an expedition paddling sea kayaks across Bass Strait. I took a few photos along the way……

In August 2012 I joined a group of paddlers on an expedition in East Greenland. 

A video from the trip can be seen here…

 In September of 2013 I embarked on a 2 week solo paddle in the raw landscape that is East Greenland. The blog of this trip is here…
