Green Island scientists

The weather forecast was looking beautiful for the week I James Cook University called asking whether I was available to head out to Green Island with their researchers to photograph their field research on water quality.

Seriously? I had my bathers on before I even got off the phone! I love the work I get to do through James Cook University. It’s an entry into worlds and people that I would never come across in my everyday life.

Throw in a bunch of really interesting scientists, mix it with sunny blue skies and the pristine Great Barrier Reef and I’m in photographic manna.

Some people love to photograph bikini models, some weddings and some still lifes. But I’ll take scientists any day of the week.
