Top 77 Photos of 2018

Where has the year gone?

2018 was a year of great personal change and growth. I got married in June and have been travelling the world with my wonderful wife, Jacinta. That also means I’ve been able to step in front of the camera on a few more occasions this year.

Countries covered included Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Turkey. We travelled slower and more deeply that I had in previous years, and gained a more intimate feel for each destination.

I hope this selection of photos inspires you to reach for your dreams in 2019 and the years to come.

Safe travels!
