A Sequence Of Sri Lanka

A Sequence Of Sri Lanka is a short film that I have FINALLY put together, taken whilst solo travelling Sri Lanka at the beginning of the year. The warm ocean, tropical palm tree lined beaches, welcoming people, stray dogs, crazy streets and beautiful light, that’s what Lanka is to me. It’s meant to be a messy…

A Welsh Summer

You might think I’m lying, but summer in Pembrokeshire has become one of my favourite things in the world. I’ve always lived by the sea, but in a small seaside town, winters can be quiet and (sometimes) pretty bleak. Dark stormy nights become rainy grey days, the winds can be bitterly cold and no one…

Feature on SurfGirl

GUYS, I wrote an article similar to my blog post about Women and Surfing in Sri Lanka – and it’s now featured on the SurfGirl website along with my images! Click the link below to read 🙂 I’m so happy that my words and images are being used to support and recognise the work of…

The Ocean for Women’s Empowerment

Abay Girls Surf Club & SeaSisters Sri Lanka Whilst I was in Sri Lanka I volunteered and photographed for a day at a surf and swimming lesson for local women and girls run by SeaSisters in Weligama. I’d heard about the Abay Girls Surf Club and was in awe of the women who were pushing…

THE ONLY GIRL – ISSUE 67

✨SO EXCITED to share that my images and an article I wrote have been published in the latest issue of SurfGirl Magazine (!!!) – This magazine has been a source of inspiration to me for years, especially as a teenager, and encouraged me to stick at surfing as a young girl. The beautiful images and…

Surf Photography in Southern Sri Lanka

One of the reasons for my month long trip to Sri Lanka was to get in the water and improve my photography amongst the waves. Shooting in the surf is a lot more difficult than people imagine and you have to have some knowledge of that environment before you even get in. Tides, currents, rips…

Sunrise in Hiriketiya

The surf culture in the sleepy southern province of Sri Lanka is something I’ve been wanting to capture since my first trip here in 2018. Setting my alarm to 5:30, I headed out one morning to a little cove over the headland. My aim was to catch the morning surfers in the magical dawn light before…

Have (some) money, will travel

Have you ever wanted to do something or go somewhere but it’s never actually materialised into anything? Was it because of being too afraid of the risks? Or that you may have to do it alone? Or of the possibility that something could go wrong? I know I have, hasn’t everyone!? Holding back from doing…

BALI

This is definitely the hardest post to write about my travels, because it is indeed the last for now. BALI. What a place, it really really is a surfers paradise and a place I could quite happily spend a lot more of my time. Starting in a jungle we explored Ubud, Seminyak, Kuta, Canggu and…

Island Hopping in Indonesia

So with plans to go from Komodo to Flores and back, we didn’t quite make it all that way unfortunately. It’s a hard realisation when you find you’re running out of time in a country that needs sooo much of it to explore. But yes, our time was running low (and our money even lower…)…
