The Paperbook Blog

It’s that time people…time to start getting excited.

Or, if you’re me, more excited, nervous and exhilarated than you have ever felt before. Except perhaps the time I went skydiving in New Zealand, but that’s another story.


That’s right, three days left to get your submissions in for the very first issue of the Paperbook Magazine!! (name pending).

The Photogenic City


Opera Arches

A few snaps of my whirlwind trip to Sydney. The city is so beautiful it’s hard to know what to photograph first, but some of my favourite shots are from times where we got lost amongst the streets. It’s difficult to take photos of the Opera House, because you just know that every angle has been photographed before…but still, that is one hell of a photogenic building.
