Darling River Run, Murray-Darling Basin
Outback NSW, Australia
My relationship with Outback NSW began in the 1980s when I took the inland route between Melbourne and Brisbane via the Corner Country.
As a fan of the legendary artist and outback adventurer, Jack Absalom, I wanted to retrace an adventure he called In Steps of Charles Sturt.
The return trip was via Queensland's Darling Downs, then following the Darling River through Bourke, Menindee, Wentworth, and then back to Melbourne.
That trip as a 20yo nurtured a love for the region. Still, it would be twenty-plus years until I returned... as an inspired professional photographer to photograph and write about the Darling River Run as well a revisiting Jack's route to the Corner via In Sturt's Steps Touring Route (as I called it)
And from there, I went to work documenting the area; sometimes commissioned, other times freelancing for various publishers.
I have always been a firm believer that some of the best ideas originate while travelling; one reason I do it! The clearing of the head from modern life.
Travel and touring are all about the shared experience, the end product of photography, but not necessarily the photographic process.
Then it dawned on me. I have shared many years of travelling, so why not combine that with inspiring others with the art of photography.
This website is the start of this dream; there are no actual tours yet, but plenty of content to inspire.

I hope you enjoy these experiences!
