My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Mental health and suicide prevention

I’m a photographer from the Byron Bay region who in 2015 released a big art book of Fine Art Male Nude Portraits called Manscapes. I photographed 25 local men from the Byron Bay region naked in nature. Rhys McNaughton was one of the models who participated. We had some great times on our shoots and Rhys was stoked with the results. Rhys was more than a model to me, he was a friend as well. On October 2015 Rhys sadly took his own life. I decided to change the journey of Manscapes and do something about this epidemic. Each year since Rhys's passing I've self published a Manscapes Calendar and in support of men's mental health.
This year I had the privilege of meeting Cameron Chant & Julie Robinson from Married At First Sight. Cameron loved what I was doing and has supported me by modeling naked for the 2020 Manscapes Calendar. Money raised from the calendar sales will go towards this Movember Campaign.

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Movember is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and I want to help them get there. Help me stop men dying too young.
