His work capturing globally-significant images in some of the most remote regions of the world has seen him dance with danger time and again.
From dining with arms dealers in northern Pakistan to negotiating with the mafia for access to locations in parts of India, working and living on the side of an active volcano, being hit by lightning, photographing the world’s highest altitude miners on ropes at nearly 5000 metres, and escaping the jaws of a saltwater crocodile, Hugh has repeatedly risked his life for his art, and the chance to leave a meaningful legacy.
A keen interest in wilderness survival has also seen him push through extreme physical and mental exhaustion in various voyages through Western Australia’s remote Kimberley region in the height of summer – journeys he embarks upon without food, water, or sleeping comforts. And often, alone.
Along the way, he’s fine-tuned the art of making the seemingly impossible possible and is passionate about helping others to do the same.
He has self published four books; two each on Western Australia’s breathtaking Kimberley and Pilbara regions, and created three more for clients.
