Week 3 for unleashed grad trips. The final week I got out an explored a little more and showing the rest of the crew what the island had to offer. Shark snorkelling again and surfing cloud break was absolutely incredible with Teddy Cream and DJ Tiger Lilly finishing of the last night with a bang.
Week 2 hooking in with Unleashed Grad Trips, shooting photos and yarning flat out with students. Sunrise and sunset hikes, driving a jet ski for the first time, night snorkelling and a sunset cruise being some of the highlights. Absolutely loving challenging myself creatively each day and getting some awesome shots!! ps still wrecked, woohoo.
Week 1 in Fiji with Unleashed grad trips has been nothing short of amazing. Surfing and shooting cloud break, snorkelling with sharks, being on cloud 9, meeting a bunch of amazing people and students. The days are flat out and i’m fucking wrecked to say the least haha absolutely loving every second of it though.

Arvo out on the boat with the friends.
Last weekend Ash and I had the pleasure of traveling to Magnetic Island to check out Pilgrim Sailing. The owners Paul and Clare are absolute legends and make the day out on the water an amazing experience for everyone.
We hired one of the iconic topless buggies that zoom around the island for $100 for 24 hours. As soon as you plant your bum in the drivers seat you instantly become 150% happier with life.
The decky onboard Pilgrim gave us directions to a little locals only spot for sunset which produced the goods. Our accomodation for the night was at the YHA at horseshoe bay which cost us $80 for a little bunk bed set up. For sunrise we scaled up Forts Walk which gave us an amazing 360 view of the island. The walk is 2.5km up and takes about 40 minutes. The rest of the day before the ferry home we zoomed around getting photos in the buzz box, climbing around some rocks, seeing a bit of wildlife and of course climbing trees.
The entire weekend cost us about $130 each which was fuel to and from Airlie, parking, ferry to Magnetic and back, accom and car hire. Not factoring food and bevs because lets be honest we all like to over indulge if were on a roady or on a holiday. Yew
Ash and Myself set out over the weekend to shoot some fun photos for Sperry Boatshoes.
Due to not reading the tide times correctly we rocked up to this beach on dead low tide bobbing at the reef edge picking our brains on how to get our stuff off the boat. A couple of pairs of reef shoes made the job not to bad and we set up camp for the night and looked amongst the rock pools. The stars were absolutely incredible and we even saw a few shooting ones.
In the morning we were greeted with amazing weather, continued drinking and had a swim. From Shaw we headed over to Maher island for a snorkel and look around.
Kirby and myself headed out Saturday morning on his ski to find this cave id seen and read about on Maher island, low and behold we found it and the mornings conditions were incredible.
Skipper of Ricochet asked us out for the day to take photos of the boat and his jewellery he's started making, out of leather and black pearls. We headed out to Edwards islands, took the tender onto the beach, went for a snorkel, then jumped back on board for lunch and cruised home.
