Some of the strongest memories of mine don't have a particular experience associated with them. They seem to be smells, feelings, moments of light shining through trees, and the sounds of birds in the air.

Recently I had the opportunity to give my skills to share with the younger generations. The Bushtrackers program is an amazing program led by passionate members of the Blue Mountains community and the NPWS staff in the Blue Mountains. I photographed students from various schools in the Blue Mountains while they were on excursions through different areas of bushland learning about the natural environment, through an immersive and sensory experience.

I was delighted to combine my own photos with those of volunteers for the worldwide conference at which the Bushtrackers team were invited to present their project.
