Australian Outback photos by Ann Britton
The Outback has a language of its own. This ancient land of wide open spaces, funny looking creatures and a distinctive natural light, is my backyard. As an Outback photographer, I want to share my deep connection with this land. To showcase her rugged, natural and enduring beauty. The spirit of her people. The bush way of life. From my lens to your heart. I’m Ann Britton, Australian Outback photographer. And this is where I live.

I was only 15 when I moved to Brunette Downs, one of the biggest cattle properties in Australia. It was here I photographed my first Outback sunset and sunrise. I was in love and have been photographing them ever since.
This ancient land tells a never-ending story. And as the oldest land on the planet, she has quite the story to tell. Wide open spaces, ancient mountains worn down by the sands of time, a quiet world teeming with life.
There’s no better place to take astrophotography photos than the Australian Outback. Our night skies are adorned with stars and celestial bodies you just cannot see anywhere else in the world.
Animals & Wildlife
The Aussie outback is home to some of the world’s most uniquely breathtaking creatures. It’s also home to the animals that keep our economy thriving. Each has its own beauty, captured in powerful images of movement, flight and sometimes fancy.

Sharing my Australian farming photos is so important. Important to me. Important to the industry. Important to my community. These photos show the world the real people of the Outback.
Ann Britton – Australian Outback photographer
G’day my name is Ann.
I’m a photographer living and working on the family property ‘Goodwood’, near the tiny country town of Boulia. That’s about 360kms west of Winton, 300km south of Mount Isa and about 1700 kms north-west of Brisbane.
So yep. I’m the real deal. I’m a fair dinkum, you beaut, living the dream, Australian Outback photographer. I don’t pop out here every few years to take some snaps then head back into the big smoke.
This land is my land. I live, breathe and work it every single day.
I understand her. We understand each other.
I want to share my love of the outback and the bush way of life in photographs. Capturing the natural light of this amazing country is what drives and challenges me. Showcasing her wide open spaces and big skies is what keeps me wanting more.
Welcome to where I live.
As my photographs are available in a range of mediums, you can take my lens and truly make it your own.

Our mustering chopper/s are based in Boulia …5km as the crow flies from the Goodwood house…on this nice calm winter morning, you could hear the choppers long before you could see them. We normally only use one chopper, but since this muster was at Mudgeacca in amongst the Hamilton Channels, we used two choppers for this muster.
Just after I turned 15, I moved from Brisbane to the Outback and on to one of the biggest cattle properties in Australia, Brunette Downs in the Northern Territory. This is where my love of photography was born. I felt I needed to not only learn the workings of a cattle station, but to capture on film, images of the station and inland Australia. Those images I could then share with others, while reliving and telling the stories of outback station life.
