A list of books and articles I have had published. I know it is not complete as there are photos used by National Parks in several states (provided for no fee), photos and articles for Action Outdoor, Australian Photography, other outdoor photographic magazines in Australia and overseas and climbing magazines in Australia and overseas such as the American Alpine Journal that I never kept copies of. There are also articles supplied for club publications but they are not publically available and are not included. I was never employed by any magazines, and was only a casual contributor.
