LA W'OLIDAY

Recently I jetted off to Los Angeles for what I like to call a W'oliday (a "Working Holiday”).

I was in need of a holiday and some fresh, creative inspiration. As the Universe works in wonderful ways, an amazing opportunity popped up for me. My friend, Faustina Agolley (TV Host & Producer), approached me to photograph portraits of some creative, inspirational people for an event that she was collaborating on called Switch Sessions, Los Angeles. 

Switch Inc. was created by Phill Nosworthy, a Sydney-based entrepreneur, and brings together a diverse group of leaders who together, share ideas about meaning in life and business. 

It was a great opportunity to work on such a fantastic project and to meet, and be inspired by, such like minded people.

Check out more about the event featured on The Collective website; the article will be published in Issue 19 of Renegade Collective magazine. Below are some of my snaps taken for article.

One of the things I discovered and loved about LA is that Aussies like to stick together! I had the chance to meet Hugh Sheridan and take some shots of him around his neighbourhood. He’s such a fun, humble guy with a great sense of humour. It was an absolute pleasure to meet him.
