My program in the Clarence Valley has been so awesome so far and I'm really glad that I'm at the tail end of the trip as the weather is moving in big time! Haha. One of my favorite things to do in any new destination is to hold an instameet and hang out with the locals, especially local photographers. I was pretty thrilled to meet everyone at my weekend instameet and then discover some local secrets with one of the talented photographers I met. Thanks for showing me around Angourie Jeremy! @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley

I'm on a bit of a roll with my coastal theme now and that is definitely set to continue with all the great light and spots I've been in. But I wanted to interrupt that schedule and share a flat lay from breakfast the other morning in Yamba! The food so far on the trip has been really exceptional but Yamba has been my fave with Irons & Craig (pictured), Leche and the Yum Yum store in Angourie all well exceeding my expectations. I am going to tag each cafe in to this post so you can check them out! At Irons and Craig I ordered the three cheese toastie and doubled up on coffee, it always feels so deserved after being out for a sunrise shoot. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley

Okay. So the other day I was to spend the afternoon in Iluka, which is a quick jaunt from Yamba on a ferry or a 40 minute drive. I was lucky enough to have one of the locals meet me for a bit of an orientation and the very first place she showed me was a small harbour. The light was pretty bad so we were just poking our heads in for a look when I saw something moving ... was it floating debris on the water? Was it something in the sand? Was it ..... FIFTY MILLION BAZILLION CRABS? πŸ¦€πŸ¦€πŸ¦€ If you guessed the last one, you're right! Some of you caught my Instagram story and I'm tempted to post some of that video here too just to give you some scale to this scene. According to the locals they've never seen so many at once, my lucky day. Btw, they're soldier crabs! Thanks for showing me around Sonia! 😘 @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley

For once in my life I am getting lucky with LIGHT! Anyone who has ever met me or especially travelled with me knows that my speciality is grey skies, rain and unseasonal (bad) weather! Haha. I never complain because I love my job but I love my job even more when I get sunrises like this. This is Main Beach Yamba and as I came down to take a shot of the pool a local was already hopping out after knocking off his daily 1km swim. We had moody and dramatic skies but a big pop of red and it all cleared throughout the day. This was Sunday morning, I'm in Wooli today and really need to catch up on my editing. I'm always behind aren't I? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley

For those that have been watching my Instagram stories you already know that I am in the Clarence Valley having a blast! I'm making my way through the region for a week and my adventures started in Yamba with a weekend instameet and this gorgeous sunrise at Main Beach, it's Yamba's own figure 8 pools. Haha. I'm going to be in and around Yamba, Angourie, Minnie Water, Wooli and Grafton and surrounds and I am already shooting up a storm. I can't believe I haven't explored this part of Australia yet, especially considering it's only a couple of hours down the coast from where I live. @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley

Here's a sneaky little latergram from Table Mountain in Cape Town and a quick reminder to add your name to my mailing list if you want to stay updated on upcoming events for the Travel Bootcamp, online courses and just cute content. The link is in my profile and the email subscription box is down the bottom. @thetravelbootcamp Goodnight XX

One really cool thing about my conference, which I don't talk about enough, is that our major sponsor is Olympus and they literally rock up on the day with a shit load of gear for us all to play with. As most of you know I have a great relationship with these guys and love my gear so it's really cool to be able to introduce you all to it. From my last Travel Bootcamp on the Gold Coast we've managed to start relationships between Olympus and a handful of the delegates so don't rule out the value of meeting a brand face to face. Let me know if you have any equipment questions and check out the event using the link in my bio. 😍 @thetravelbootcamp @olympus_au

Well I thought I would post a shot from Victoria because I'm still talking about the Travel Bootcamp and our April event is in Melbourne! We don't have many tickets left and are rallying our forces as we speak to have a sell out event. So far we have people coming from every state in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, the USA (a few people) and one person from Switzerland!! I can't believe it! I love to see people traveling for this event because if you want a career in travel you have to be prepared to travel a lot and if you want to shake up your career you have to make a giant leap of faith, like coming to an event like ours. I actually have a student with me on my current job. She's writing a thesis on influencer marketing and I've been remembering so many awesome moments and stories as we've been spoken. This is a career I am really lucky to have and I teach everything I know at the conference, I'm an open book! If you're sitting on the fence to come I say jump. I know you won't regret it as I haven't regretted a minute of my amazing journey. @thetravelbootcamp #thetravelbootcamp

Good morning!! So we are getting closer and closer to my next conference @thetravelbootcamp , which is on in April in Melbourne Australia. The Bootcamp is designed to teach people how to get paid to travel from the perspectives of a travel Instagrammer (me), a travel blogger (Liz Carlson, Young Adventuress blog) and a travel writer (the fabulous Georgia Rickard). If you are a content creator, photographer, writer or anything in between you should check out our site, it's linked in my profile. The conference is literally my passion, my baby and the best day ever! I'm out on a trip this week but will be catching up on comments and answering questions when I can so let me know if there's anything you want to know. #thetravelbootcamp

Listen up Gold Coasters! It's week five of our EPIC six weeks of Instagram challenges and we're down to the pointy end of the competition with winners announced soon. Our theme this week is "Local Favs" – This week is your free choice. You can choose to tell your story or the Gold Coast’s story, or a story about the way it all is or how you ended up here. It’s totally up to you. For my entry I ended up shooting The Spit Main Beach, which is a place I've spent a lot of time at over the years. This was taken at my last instameet and I'm hoping to have another one soon! Week 5 kicked off yesterday so you have Friday to upload your entry with @DestinationGoldCoast and #WeAreGoldCoast Good luck! πŸ˜˜πŸ„πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸπŸŒŠπŸ’₯

I know it's kind of late notice but I'm having an INSTAMEET tomorrow down in Yamba and I'd love to see everyone! The information is in the link in my bio but basically meeting at 5PM at the Wish Bone Sculpture at Turners Beach. Tag your friends! @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley πŸ’₯πŸ”₯❀️

As a send off to my Sun Country shots I have posted an epic Steller over at @StellerStories , if you don't have the Steller app you are cray! It reminds me of early Instagram with great content and an awesome community. (Not that Instagram doesn't have those things, Steller is just not as big and crazy haha) The link to my story is in my profile but you can also look me up on the platform with the same username. I literally have a story for every trip I've done for three years, all the goodness in one place. Check it out. Xx Thanks @VisitSunCountry , I loved it! πŸŒžπŸ’«πŸŒŸπŸ’›
