I absolutely love the energy of this photograph ‘Tasman Seabird’. I captured this print one afternoon on Moreton Bay, while on location for one of our campaign shoots for a collection of clothing I was releasing. I decided I really needed a timber sail boat for the shoot, as I love how iconic the visions of sailboats are on the water.
The whole vibe of our shoot was old world travel and style, with a good dose of nostalgia thrown in, so we needed a classic sail boat to set the mood. I found a beautiful 1960s timber sail boat from a friends’ in-laws which was beyond lucky.
My friend Julz’ husband and his two brothers are rugged capable outdoor types, so along with the brothers’ father having a spare wooden sail boat at arms reach was surprisingly normal. I’ll never forget seeing ‘Tasman Seabird’ in the marina early in the morning before setting sail, her interior all golden and glowingly perfect in the twinkly sunlight.
After spending the day out on the water and shooting our campaign images I was really keen to photograph the actual boat itself. I jumped in the dinghy with one of the brothers Loch. It was decided we would release ‘Seabird’s’ rolled up sails when we gave the signal from the dinghy.
The sails had been covered up all day so I was really excited to photograph the boat in full form Loch and I got in front of ‘Seabird’ and I framed her up in my camera and then he gave the signal. Then BOOM!
The most beautiful rust coloured sails were released which instantly filled with air, then immediately she started charging towards us. I could hear the exhilarating sound of heavy canvas resisting the wind and the tings of metal in the air, all those classic sounds of sailing. As ‘Seabird’ gained more speed from the wind the vision of her felt so primal.
I now understand how boats are a beacon of grace, strength and freedom and how emotional sailing can be. ‘Tasman Seabird’ is available in 5 sizes and I just love the atmosphere this piece sets within the home.

I work with a local professional art framer to finish your new photographic print in my signature style - unstained Tasmanian Oak with a traditional mat board*.
The frame is finished with a natural beeswax to give a beautiful matt appearance and to preserve the wood.
Lightweight museum grade acrylic is used to ensure that your framed artwork is installed easily and does not require a professional hanging service.
Once you have received your framed artwork, it is ready to hang.
*Please note: My Extra Large sized prints are printed edge to edge and are framed without a mat board.
