#weare­gold­coast Pho­tog­ra­phy came into my life when I was look­ing for some­thing else to get pas­sion­ate about af­ter fo­cus­ing on my chil­dren for a long time. We have one of the big­gest pho­tog­ra­phy com­mu­ni­ties on the Coast and I love be­ing an ac­tive part of it with my role in @igers­gold­coast

Pink Coast: I saw this sky de­vel­op­ing as I drove home from work one af­ter­noon. I stopped my car on the side of the road to cap­ture it and got beeped about 10 times from golfers leav­ing my work and recog­nis­ing me.

Un­der con­struc­tion: If I’m not sure that the sun­rise will pop, I will al­ways try to go to Surfers Par­adise to get some build­ings in the photo.

Man on a mis­sion: This is one of my best pho­tog­ra­phy friends Mitch Gil­more. He is an amaz­ing wave and un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­pher.

Into the light: I love hav­ing a hu­man el­e­ment in my pho­tos and this man was in the right place at the right time for me to cap­ture him on his morn­ing swim.

Sand pump­ing jetty: You can never take too many pho­tos of this Gold Coast icon, one of my favourite sun­rise lo­ca­tions with so many per­spec­tives.

Gold rush: This surf life­saver mes­saged me on In­sta­gram: “I think that’s me in your photo? Can you send me a copy for my mum?” I hap­pily obliged.

Mo­tion blur: I love this style of photo. It’s taken at sun­rise and the tex­tures make me feel so calm. I al­ways get the most en­gage­ment on these pho­tos too.
