    South Melbourne, 2016 No, this is not a blog post about my favourite football club, Liverpool FC, it’s just how I like my photo walks to be at times. Many had asked me about my preference, in a group or alone; I always answered the latter. I could spend the…


  2. Less Is More

    12 Sep 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2015 The lesser you carry, the further you walk When I first started street photography, all I need was my iPhone and Power Bank to charge up my phone. There was no additional lens, a second camera body or a tripod, and travelling light was essential. The lesser…
