Australian-made and sustainably crafted, this is my first photography book. And I can proudly say, all profits benefit conservation,” he wrote.
“In addition to my widely available book I am also thrilled to announce a signed launch edition series of 500 books, including a signed never-before-seen print, ‘thank you’ card and handcrafted Australian-made box, sealed with a custom embossment. Both of these options ship worldwide, but hurry – our launch edition is strictly limited to 500 coveted copies. Thank you for being part of my journey and for your support.”
