Thank you to the Australian Grand Pix Corporation for giving me a wonderful opportunity to have photography media pass for this years Australian Grand pix. It was amazing to photography the F1 cars on the track and to also capture the sporting classes over the GP weekend. Many thanks to Nikon Australia for their wonderful support and gear for this brilliant event in Melbourne.

I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Nikon Australia for sponsoring me for this year’s F1 in Melbourne & the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast. With the D4S at the F1 in Melbourne & the D5 at the Commonwealth Games, I was so impressed with the camera’s functions and what they were capable of achieving. The D5 at the Commonwealth Games was sensational in capturing all the action of the swimming, weight lifting & gymnastics. Thanks again Nikon Australia, I am hoping to work with you again in the near future.
I recently did a weekend trip to the Wimmera Mallee region of Victoria to do the Art Silo Trails.
Founded in 2015, Silo Art Trail is Australia’s largest outdoor gallery. The trail stretches over 200 kilometres, linking Brim with neighbouring towns Lascelles, Patchewollock, Rosebery, Rupanyup and Sheep Hills.
Providing an insight into the true spirit of the Wimmera Mallee, the trail recognises and celebrates the region’s people through a series of large-scale mural portraits painted onto grain silos, many of which date back to the 1930s.
The project saw a team of renowned artists from Australia and across the world visit the region, meet the locals and transform each grain silo into an epic work of art; each one telling a unique story about the host town.
The Silo Art Trail was conceived in 2015 after the success of the first silo artwork in Brim. What started as a small community project by the Brim Active Community Group and artist Guido van Helten resulted in widespread international media attention and an influx of visitors to the region. It was here that the idea for a trail was born.
The Silo Art Trail was created as a partnership between Yarriambiack Shire Council, international street art agency Juddy Roller, Victorian Government, Australian Government and GrainCorp, who donated the silos as canvases for the artists’ work.
