Nelson Bay / Port Stephens with Jarrod Castaing and John Armytage

Nelson Bay – Port Stephens

Jarrod Castaing

Jarrod Castaing is an internationally award-winning fine art photographer specialising in breathtaking landscape photography.

Having been fortunate enough to travel through over 50 countries (and counting!), his passion is capturing those moments of light that only last for a few minutes, twice a day, celebrating the incredible beauty of our world.

Featured in publications and exhibitions worldwide, including the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington DC, his museum-qualit Limited Edition Prints are held in private and corporate collections around the globe.

Jarrod is an allround good bloke. I look forward to doing some tours wth him.
