'Space to Roam' the Book!

Depending on how long you’ve been following along, you may remember seeing my film ‘Space to Roam’ back in 2019. I’m excited to announce that I am now continuing the project and bringing it to book form by 2025. ‘Space to Roam’ is a self funded passion photography project that focuses on an astronaut exploring the ‘otherworldly’ here on planet earth. From images of a massive alien-like colony of penguins in Antarctica to the mars-like landscapes of North Africa, ‘Space to Roam’ highlights the earth in a way that drives appreciation for our beautiful planet through authentic images of otherworldly locations without heavy digital manipulation.
