Keith Wiggins...

Keith Wiggins is the man at the helm. As an experienced skipper, he tackles the nautical tasks associated with Picture the Coast. In addition to navigation and sailing, there are several necessities such as chart planning, trip planning, vessel preparation and repairs, logistics and safety, which help to make each leg of the trip successful and enjoyable. He spends most of his spare time sailing, and has completed many coastal trips both here in Australia and in the United States. The Picture the Coast project provides him with both inspiration and a challenge. Keith has been an IT Business Consultant for the past 10 years and is currently with Telstra, but he would rather be sailing.

 

Adrian Morgan...

Adrian Morgan was the man with the camera for the NSW leg of the journey, and the man with the eye for the detail in the coastline. Adrian is the man in the water and the one embracing the elements of mother nature. Not only is he capturing the coastline, but also the stories that surround the 10,685 beaches in Australia, from the Sailing Clubs to the rural communities that hug our shores. Adrian is an IT Consultant at Telstra Corporation and the essence of the journey that is Picture The Coast.

 

 

 

As we ventured out on the Port Phillip Bay leg of the Picture The Coast journey - starting with the Corio Bay - we added another photographer to our portfolio. Taariq joined on very short notice to assist in capturing an 18m picture for the "You are here" exhibition in the National Wool Museum in Geelong. Taariq - a photographer by passion and a Business Analyst and Software Tester by day at the NAB, runs a business called Comfy Creativity specialising in location-based family portraiture.  He is also our resident stitcher and has worked tirelessly in joining the various images. Don't use swear words like "Parallax" around him.
