There is so much that I love about hitting the trail. The plethora of hikes around Queenstown and in New Zealand in general was a big factor in my decision to move to the land of the long white cloud. This log is for retrospection and inspiration.
Queenstown is the only place that has me somehow feeling a simultaneous ‘low’ of feeling grounded and at ease and ‘high’ of feeling always inspired and fulfilled. It’s a state I have always sought and now I get to be in it, day in and day out.
Looking for a light, compact + sturdy travel tripod? LOOK NO FURTHER! The Sirui A-1205 carbon fibre travel tripod is the BEST tripod I’ve ever owned.
Birthdays are a great time for reflection. When I turned 29, I wanted to take with me 29 moments that set my soul on fire over the last 12 months of my life.
Here are my favourite night sky photos and some musings on people and connection
My final week in the land of the long white cloud…
My third week was spent primarily hiking the Routeburn + Caples Tracks, during which I did A LOT OF THINKING. Like the most thinking I have probably ever done in my life and that is saying something, because I am one of the deepest and widest thinkers that you’ll ever meet…so for week 3, come on into my crazy mind…
The highlight of my second week in New Zealand was hiking the Kepler Track.

I have often wondered why I love art so much, when I wasn't brought up to, and why I have this insistent compulsion to indulge in my creativity…here are my thoughts xx
I am often asked about what gear I use in the outdoors when backpacking (which is hiking with everything you need in your bag for overnight + longer) so I thought I'd put together a very comprehensive list, divided into must-haves and nice-to-haves…
It’s so easy to get wound up in this busy, modern world. Through photography, I’ve learnt to slow down…I’ve learnt to find big impact in the little things.
What can you do + see in 72 hours? A LOT! Here's what I got to over 3 days in Christchurch, New Zealand spanning art, culture, beaches, walks, sightseeing and coffee.
