The Journey

During my time working in Outdoor Education, my passion for the outdoors and photography transitioned smoothly. Working with students in breathless landscapes gave me the ability to document it. This gave me a new perspective on our relationship with the outside world and our connections to each other. It was a pivotal point in my work that helped me discover my desire to protect the environment and creating change through imagery and story telling.
