Capturing Moments

We take every opportunity, to stop and capture the surreal beauty of Australia far and wide from historical buildings, landscapes to the simple beauty of Australian native flora.

 

Sharing our collection of stunning photographs of places and moments during "our journey" exploring and filming Australia, isn't just a passion but it's our way to connect with our history, our surroundings and capturing moments in time, that can often be so quickly forgotten about or lost.
