Towards the end of last year I was fortunate enough to interview Marne Levine the Chief Operations Officer at Instagram. Levine was in Australia to launch the new suite of Instagram for Business tools into our region first because of the high penetration rates that Facebook mobile and Instagram experience here. What I found even more amazing from our chat was that many business owners, entrepreneurs and artists from regional Australia had set up exclusive online presences on apps like Instagram in lieu of a company website. I do think that will change as rural Australia becomes more connected with the roll out of the NBN. I certainly hope that regional entrepreneurs like those listed below keep on sharing what are some simply stunning visual moments.
Warning: There are no shit-house “look at my lunch” shots or “Laughing, slightly bent forward – beach in the background – no, really this is completely candid” shots to be found here.

Where business meets art. If you are into a good landscape shot you will get lost for hours looking at Chris’ thread.
Happy New Year everyone. I have been learning some editing skills over the holidays. Hopefully this year my photos will be just a little bit better. I like most people get home after a great day or weekend hoping all the photos i took are as awesome on the computer as they are in my head 😀only to find they are not. Hopefully with my newly acquired skills my percentage of good vs average improves. Kings Canyon NT

New blog post! Last weekend we hosted a lunch out on the farm; our guests walked through lush green grass down to the creek flat where we’d set up one long table and a ‘pop up’ kitchen under the willow trees. It was such a top day and I’ve just shared loads of pics and a recipe for the venison terrine we served over on the blog. X @tipiinteriors @tasteorange #orangewinefestival
