I spent most of my youth peering through the lens of a camera, obsessed with capturing beauty like catching a beam of light piercing a veil of clouds, or the way the ocean sparkled as its waves lapped at the California beach using techniques I learned through amateur photography courses.
Now that I’ve grown up and become a dedicated photographer, California just wasn’t enough for my ambitions. This is why, when I stumbled across a job doing a documentary photo shoot in exotic Australia, I leapt at the chance and signed up immediately.
Hopping aboard a plane the very next week, I was bursting with excitement as it touched down at the airport in Sydney. When I stepped out of the plain, I was struck by the pleasant heat and the smell of salt in the air, so familiar and yet so different from my home back in distant California.
