hello!

you are so welcome to lean + meadow. thank you for stopping by.

a little about lean…
I am lean. an australian food, travel and lifestyle photographer. for the past two years I have been living, travelling, photographing and cooking around the usa. now I have found my way back home and have settled (for now) on the new south wales south coast. still living, still travelling, still cooking, still photographing.

favourites: tea, slow mornings, cooking, travel to anywhere, rain, taj the german shepherd dog, autumn fruit, markets, fresh blooms, inspired people, generous conversation, home made pasta, cafe scouting, plants, long dinners, snow.

muses: changing seasons, rainy days, big cities and bigger countryside, driving open roads, small farms, the dinner table, scandinavia, misty mountains, meadows.

a little about lean + meadow…
a tiny atlas of food, travel and lifestyle, lean + meadow’s drive is to capture and share moments from an appreciated, simple and slower paced life.

food: it’s about appreciating the story of food from the ground up to the belly. keeping it local. keeping it slow. keeping it mindful. from small farms, their farmers and seasonal foraging to learning origins and local traditions and finally sparking inspired recipes and feasts. all shared through photographs and words. or a quiet meal with friends. sweet or savory. spontaneous or styled.

travel: very few moments are found standing still. constant wandering, seeking, culture, and adventure – it’s all documented and shared. from the northern hemisphere to the south, east coast to west, city streets and mountain climbs to a simple trip down the road. these stories are worth sharing. travel is in the lean + meadow blood.

lifestyle: to be inspired and to know it’s possible. to keep creating. to live a life that is demiurgic, visionary and ever productive. to seek moments from a lifestyle of community, partaking, slow, appreciation and simplicity. here you will find creative humans, well loved homes and original, curated spaces.

all photographs taken are using natural light, a Canon 6D and either a 30mm or 50mm f/1.4 lens.

if you happen to connect with my work I would love for you to leave a comment somewhere – it always makes my day.
