  • Description


    I am a photojournalist and I travel quite frequently. I have a property in the Snowy Mountains in Australia and I am trying to get it finished with landscaping and a number of other things. I am pretty friendly and I am used to sharing space with all sorts of people young and old and all sorts of ethnicities and professions. I have a cat and now have three horses. I live up in the mountains and the weather can be quite intense and I am out of town by 24kms so its not party central but I can assure people a pretty interesting time if they come and stay! This would be especially suited to anyone that has a real interest in the environment, Indigenous Issues and photography and art...the house has wifi, Tv and is quite luxurious I just need help with landscaping and building a few it would suit and outdoorsy strong arty crafty person! I am an inveterate talker so someone who is not annoyed by communication would be great...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a pretty well known photojournalist... If people are interested in media, art and horses... they could learn huge amounts

    My ideal volunteer would be someone who is physically strong, is interested in photography, or architecture, the environment, Indigenous Issues and knows a bit about horses. As a veteran photojournalist and documentary film maker i would have much to exchange with a younger person in terms of knowledge of these would be great for me to brush up on my German and Italian as well...but a volunteer who was an architect and builder would be utterly perfect...
