Hunter Valley Photographer

I recently had the opportunity to collaborate on a photo shoot with HUNTERhunter.
The shoot was to showcase 5 amazing places in the gorgeous Hunter Valley worth checking out on a day in the vines. Starting at FAWK food, the perfect breakfast location, with freshly baked goods, great coffee and atmosphere. From there we made our way across to Brokenwood Wines, quite recognisable by it’s outstanding architecture and use of textured wood panelling on the facade of the main building.

We made a short stop at Pukara Estate, a place known for their olive oils, vinegars and dukkahs. A short drive from Pukara, we found ourselves over at The WINE House. A menu full of irresistible dishes, we ordered Braised Osso Bucco with sage croquettes and herbed gnocchi with hot smoked trout and ricotta.

Our last stop for our day was Usher Tinkler. An old church, this cellar door has a lot of character. The share plates and selection of wine, made this spot an ideal final destination. As the sun set over the hills, we made our way home. But not before stopping for a quick shot of the sleek Mercedes CLA, wrapped in golden light at the lookout above Ben Ean.
