Summerland Serums Story for ‘Outback’ Magazine

I love it when you get a job right on your doorstep. Of course it’s unfortunate when the job comes up that you’re camping with the family in the neighbouring state with family and friends. Still, I really enjoyed shooting this story for ‘Outback Magazine’
