Hey there! Thanks for dropping by!

A year ago, I decided to do something a little crazy – I took my 2022 Ford Transit 350L LWB and turned it into my dream camper van. Trust me, it was a wild ride, but it’s opened up a world of opportunities for me. My comfy and luxe mobile home means I get to live on the road full-time, enjoying all the best bits of Australia.

Turning a van into a camper isn’t as simple as throwing a mattress in the back (although, wouldn’t that be nice?). I really had to learn the ins and outs of everything, from building a kitchenette and a sleeping area to figuring out where to store my photography gear. But the real challenge was understanding the 12v off-grid power systems.

I spent a good two years getting my head around it, learning all I could about sustainable energy and how to harness it effectively. There were definitely some bumps along the road, but I’ve now got a set-up that lets me live comfortably, wherever I decide to park up for the night.

Travelling around Australia in my self-converted Ford Transit is a true adventure. One day I’m waking up to the sound of waves crashing on the shore, the next I’m nestled in the heart of a lush rainforest. Every mile I cover brings new sights to behold and, as a photographer, it’s the dream.

Being on the road means I stumble upon moments that just take my breath away. From sunrises that set the sky on fire to wildlife encounters that make me feel so lucky, I get to capture it all through my lens.
