Since my first plane flight as a child, I have always had the travel bug and travelled a lot. I moved to Europe as an 18 year old and spent 6 years working and travelling around, seeing as much as I possibly could.
In today’s modern world, we are all getting busier. We are time poor and with the invasion of social media in recent years, family time is rare, but more importantly -priceless.
It’s the new trend. We are all travelling more and with this, comes sharing our adventures on Social Media. Often, a great “Instagramable” location can determine our destination choice. In fact, many people travel to a location purely with the aim of getting that perfect “Instagram shot”.
One of the most distinctive and beautiful things about Australia is its contrasting landscapes. From the pristine beaches, to the lush rainforest and barren outback. With more and more people traveling and many tourist destinations becoming overcrowded, the trend is changing to travelers looking for more unique experiences. Particularly with social media, everyone wants that rare selfie, something that’s going to go viral, not the same old shots that have been done to death.
Such an honour to be not only featured in the Gold Coast Bulletin with my work as a local photographer, but to have the front cover of the Gold Coast Eye Magazine.
I always feel like it is a privilege to be paid to travel to such incredible destinations and share my images and stories. Constantly pinching myself that this is my life! So lucky. This the latest edition of Pindara Magazine on the Gold Coast with a story from a trip to Noosa.
This is the message the locals are spreading just 2 short months since Cyclone Debbie ripped through the region causing devastation, with the eye of the storm hitting right smack bang in the Whitsundays.
Easily one of the best places in Queensland to visit for incredible, up close underwater wildlife experiences is Lady Elliot Island. Not only is this a beautiful natural environment, but the opportunity to swim so close to turtles, manta rays and so many other marine life are just mind blowing.
Lets face it, at any one time, we are all dreaming of a holiday. I get back from one trip and I’m already planning and getting excited about the next one. So when Sunshine Coast Tourism invited me on a road trip up to the Glasshouse Mountains and beaches, of course I jumped at the chance.
As the wife of a retired race driver (Russell Ingall), I’ve led a really busy life, travelling and meeting the demands of a professional athlete’s schedule and children as well. So when my husband retired from full time driving a couple of years ago, suddenly I had all this time on my hands. It was the perfect excuse for me to rekindle my love of photography and continue travelling, trying to break into the extremely popular and very tough, Destination Marketing industry.
