Red Dust Snowtm - Simon Bayliss

Professional Photographer

** Excited to announce the NEW photographic gallery highlighting my favourite journeys, destinations and experiences, covering Australia, France, and Sweden!

My photographic journey started about twenty years ago when I fueled my wanderlust with a motorcycle and photographic journey across Europe to fulfil a childhood dream to ride across Europe, and 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 (a whole 2.5mp) 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 Athens 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.

Not only that, I have documented my passion for rivers and the outback of New South Wales (AU) through touring projects like the Darling River RunDarling River Run and the Cameron CornerCameron Corner, the point where the states of New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia meet. Most recently, I have created Sturts Touring RouteSturts Touring Route, the Watershed LoopWatershed Looptm..  a place close to my heart, the Barmah-Millewa Forest and the Timber Cutters Runtm.

The photographic 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.
