Freelance Journalist Work for June July 2011

freelance journalist/press

This is a list of articles / other media work I’ve done as a freelance journalist during June and July 2011. I intend to continue writing freelance articles and do more radio interviews in the future. They will be linked to on a regular basis.

I was asked by Tourism Western Australia and Adventure Wild outback tour operators to take photos and videos for them of the Northern remote Kimberley area. I wrote related articles about the trip for ABC Technology Online, YHA Backpacker Essentials Magazine, reviews of several travel gadgets for GEARE magazine and articles on Road Less Travelled website.

I often have good ideas for articles that don’t fit the audience of my blogs or deserve a bigger audience so I’ve decided to pitch those ideas to various other publications. Please contact me by email if you have a good idea for an article I could write in 1 of those categories.
