the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve

2018 was my ninth year documenting the annual Crocodile Research Trip at the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. The Croc research team are there for over a month and I am there for just over a week. It is a achingly beautiful part of the world, to see a landscape only touched by nature is very special and I am very thankful to get to be there every year.
