AS SEEN IN: Women’s Golf Magazine 2024

Who would’ve thought I’d GOLF, let alone venture into GOLF PHOTOGRAPHY? I’m still learning the ropes but honestly it’s the best mental and physical sport I’ve come to embrace. It’s truly become a part of who I am! If you have been following me for while, I want to extend my gratitude for being a part of my golfing journey and for perhaps inspiring you to give it a try!

I’m grateful for the mini feature in WOMEN’S GOLF MAGAZINE, a publication dedicated to women into golf where I lean into my experience and learnings and share my top 5 tips for shooting golf tournaments. And, as always, a big thank you to Nikon Australia Pty Ltd and Havas Red AU for recognising and embracing my newfound passion. Their support instils in me the confidence to continue pushing out of my comfort zone and, in my own way, inspiring women to pursue sports photography.

Enjoy reading and exploring a few of my unpublished works.

Plant Parent fashion editorial

Ready to raise the bar on parenthood? Start with some green thumb action.

This feature follows a young man who thinks fatherhood is a breeze but soon learns the true meaning of being a cool parent through the art of indoor plant care. His parents give him the ultimate challenge, and he rises to the occasion with style and confidence, mastering the diverse and ever-changing landscape of parenting through his collection of unique and thriving plants.

This is a visual representation of his journey, showcasing his growth and evolution as a PLANT PARENT.

As parents, we know that parenting can be:

  • Fiddleleaf – “fiddly”
  • Dried flowers – “lost”
  • Vines – “Tricky and Entangled”
  • Kangaroo plant – “resilient”
  • Strong of pearls – “cherishable”.

Which plant describes your parenting situ? Would love to hear your story!

Melbourne Fashion Week: Student Collections Runway Day 5

I got the goosebumps watching the Melbourne Fashion Week, student collections runway last Friday night.


Most likely the best student fashion design work I’ve seen thus far!!!

The show featured students from Box Hill Institute, Holmesglen, Kangan Institute, RMIT and Whitehouse Institute of Design.

This runway was located underground at MCG’s carpark as the student collections were styled by Stuart Walford.



Massive congratulations to QIN WANG for winning the Student Designer Awards 2021!

Qin drew her inspiration from traditional paper-cutting techniques and handicraft and has created three-dimensional fabric vortexes that appear to whirl around the body. Other pieces in the collection feature gravity-defying layers, constructed using various elements of scaled cutwork as shown below.

Here are the students from each design school in Melbourne:


Yasuha Miki, Nima Zangmo, Qin Wang, Tatenda Serere, Vaishali Madyala


Anna Barrett, Chloe Crawford, Putu Liana Putri Pradnya Paramita, Remi Natylia
