I have taken over 600 portfolio worthy images this year not counting charity project work, and this is my favourite of them all. I can't quite explain how amazing the Atacama Desert region is. It may be the driest place on earth, but in many ways the most visually striking.

I took this photo while standing on the shores of a lake at the base of a volcano (you can see it in the background). A family of Vicuña just casually walked through and the mother & baby are the ones in the shot.

There really is nothing quite like watching a winter sunrise or sunset in the Arctic Circle. Because it's so far north, the daylight hours vary wildly with the seasons. The day I took this (January this year), the sun was only up for a few hours in total. The reason why that is so amazing to see is that the entire time the sun is up, it sits on the horizon like a constant golden sunset. Naturally, as a photographer I was in heaven :)

Of all the crazy, beautiful animals I got to photograph in the Amazon rain forest, this Toucan wins the award for my favourite in terms of colour. There were several different colour varieties of Toucan that I saw but the vivid blue on this guy was just amazing.

Yesterday in Brisbane, the city I'm lucky enough to call home. I'm usually all about colour, but this shot suited black and white. Merry weekend

A family I captured walking along the perfect beaches of Abel Tasman National Park in NZ. Don't give up guys, the weekend is nearly here!

Going with an oldie today. I took this nearly 5 year ago on my first trip when I was just really starting photography properly. This is the ancient city wall of Xi'an in China, which is now completely dwarfed by the gigantic city of over 5.5 million.

The great thing about taking photos in China is that they go to spectacular lengths to make sure everything looks great after dark, random light shows included!

There are mountain ranges like this all over the place on the South Island of NZ. You can't drive 30 minutes without running in to a new set of peaks. The urge to pull over every mile to take a photo is just unbearable.

The only way to get to Mirador de Las Torres and this view of the 3 towers in Torres Del Paine National Park, Patagonia, is to hike for a few hours up steep inclines and scramble over challenging rocks. Once you sit by the pure glacial water lake and look at the view though, you completely forget how hard it was to get there!

One of my favourites from the last year. I was staying at Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca, Peru with a local family. This lady had just finished a full day farming potatoes and was walking home in the early evening when I took this.

I love to shoot in the ocean and I try to do it any chance I get. The Gili Islands in Indonesia are one of the best places to see and capture ocean wildlife like this sea turtle. You can swim with them right off the beach!

I'm currently sorting through and processing shots from last year and I found this one from inside La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The crazy coloured stained glass windows illuminate the massive hall in a different vibrant colours depending on what time it is and where the sun is in the sky. At the time I took this, it was the turn of red and orange.

This mornings sunrise shot with +Kristin Repsher. Getting up at 3am to hit the coast is always worth it. One of the things I missed most while travelling this last year was the Queensland sunrises!

I have seen, photographed and experienced some incredible things this year from throughout South and Central America, Europe, the Arctic Circle, South East Asia and Australiasia.

While every experience when travelling is memorable in its own right, In terms of a pure 'I can't believe that just happened' moment, I think the one that sticks out is when I got to swim with and photograph a pod of 500 wild Dusky Dolphins in Kaikoura, New Zealand. They were majestic and genuinely playful despite having me chasing them around with a camera.

I hope everybody had a great 2015 and has a better 2016. My 2015 will be tough to beat, but I love a good challenge :)

There really is nothing quite like watching a winter sunrise or sunset in the Arctic Circle. Because it's so far north, the daylight hours vary wildly with the seasons. The day I took this (January this year), the sun was only up for a few hours in total. The reason why that is so amazing to see is that the entire time the sun is up, it sits on the horizon like a constant golden sunset. Naturally, as a photographer I was in heaven :)

The cobbled streets of the San Telmo area of Buenos Aires are always busy with people after the sun goes down. This is especially true on street market day, when I took this photo.

As far as I can tell most people are unaware that Peru has a desert with sand dunes like this. I know I had no idea before I visited this year. There is soooo much more to Peru than just Inca ruins and Machu Picchu!

Merry Christmas Eve! I'm still sharing my favourites from the year and this is definitely one of them. Ecuador also happened to be my favourite country to visit in South and Central America. It's not everywhere in the world where you can swing off the side of an active volcano over part of the Amazon rainforest!

I have taken over 600 portfolio worthy images this year not counting charity project work, and this is my favourite of them all. I can't quite explain how amazing the Atacama Desert region is. It may be the driest place on earth, but in many ways the most visually striking.

I took this photo while standing on the shores of a lake at the base of a volcano (you can see it in the background). A family of Vicuña just casually walked through and the mother & baby are the ones in the shot.
