Red Dust Snowtm - Simon Bayliss

Professional Photographer

About twenty years ago, I went on a wanderlust journey across Europe with two distinct purposes. Firstly, it was a childhood dream to ride a motorcycle across Europe, and secondly, to recapture the passion I had for photography.

Simon Bayliss - Red Dust Snow

I bought a Triumph motorcycle in Athens, Greece, as well as a state-of-art digital camera and began my journey that lasted 18 months and covered nine countries.
While the camera and motorcycle are long gone (sadly for the latter) it was the catalyst for a creative pursuit that is as strong as the day I departed Athen with my life in the panniers of that remarkable Triumph Adventurer.

Since then, I have pursued most genre of photography. An early mentor taught me that while fashion, wedding, product, lifestyle, travel, portrait, and news photography are all very different, what you learn in each will make your better photographer.

For the last twenty years, I have followed that advice.

My travel & touring photography has taken me across the Darling River and up into Cameron Corner (both many times). As a result, I share my touring routes like the Darling River Run, Sturt' Touring Route, and the Watershed Looptm.. to name a few.

Also, a place close to my heart, the Barmah-Millewa Forest and the Timber Cutters Runtm.

The journey has also taken me across Scandinavia, with Sweden being the birthplace of my partner, Elenor, and a place I have grown to love after living there for eighteen months.

A few years ago, while travelling the outback, I was thinking of a name that sums up everything I have done across the diversity of eastern Australia and that of northern Scandinavia... and Red Dust Snowtm seemed like a perfect fit.

I hope you enjoy these journeys and experiences!
