Yorke Island

One the greatest aspects about photography is the opportunities it presents to travel and experience amazing people, places and cultures you otherwise only read about. Last year we had the opportunity to travel to some really remote locations around Australia in connection with an Indigenous portfolio we did for Centrelink, below is a brief look at one of the most amazing places on earth and some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.

With a population of  only 300, Yorke Island, traditionally known as Masig, is a coral cay, about 2.7 km long and 800 m at its widest, situated in the Torres Strait its actually closer to Papua New Guinea then the tip of Queensland. The location was simply breath taking with beautiful clear blue water, great weather and sandy white beaches. One of the local children on the Island Busannah Mosby (Boodi) just loved being in front of the camera which really helped us create some great images. Have look at the gallery of images we captured whilst on the island and a behind the scenes video captured by Hormazd on his iPhone (sorry about the quality).

Firstly you need to see  just how small and remote the island is, make sure you zoom out!
