Morocco offers such geographical diversity that you can leave the beautiful beaches of Agadir in the morning to find yourself at the foot of the Oukmaiden ski slopes in the afternoon, before coming back down to experience a beautiful evening in the palm groves of Marrakech.
When seen from the sky, Morocco – inserted between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic – has a long strip of mountains which runs from East to West before embedding itself in the sand at Mauritania. The landscapes are very varied and astonishing: the vertiginous snowy peaks of the (upper) High Atlas mountains, the crags and gullies of the Rif massifs, the dense forests of oaks and thuyas of the central plateau, the fertile plains of the Meseta, the arid lands of the high plateaus, the almost desert steppes and luxurious oases of the Souss basin and the Saharan sand dunes.

Hi I consider myself part of the new generation of panoramic landscape photographer. I am passionate and wildly enthusiastic about photography, having spent the last 17 years exploring all parts of Australia to photograph panoramic images.
I first fell in love with photography at age 13. I photographed wildlife as an amateur before leaving university to pursue a career in sports photography. In 1998, I was fortunate enough to take the eye of Australia’s leading sports photography agency, Sport the Library. In this time covering sport, I covered over 300 events in a three-year period, including the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
My passion has always been in panoramic landscape photography. I first photo shoot as a landscape photographer was walking the Overland Track in 1997. Since then, I have travelled extensively across Australia and New Zealand photographing landscapes in panoramic format.
I am a Master of Photography and have won over 100 Awards in both International and National Competitions – see my awards here. In 2005, I was the only Australian to be Highly Commended in the world’s most prestigious wildlife photographic competition, the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
In 2014, I was awarded both the International Landscape Photographer of the Year Runner-up and the International Landscape Photograph of the Year Runner-up.
