In March 2013, Dan McIntosh had an idea. A station cook and keen photographer, he wanted to share the pictures he had taken of the outback life he loved so much. Encouraged by his sister, he started a community Facebook page called Station Photos. Dan wasn't expecting much but within days the bush telegraph kicked in and pretty soon thousands of people were liking and contributing their own photos to the page. A year on, Station Photos has almost 50,000 followers and a staggering 30 million views from around the world.

What people love so much about Station Photos is that it's real. Real people taking photos on their phones and cameras of what makes them laugh (and cry), the land they love, their kids, their mates and their animals. It's a way of life that most Australians - living in the cities and along the coast - never get to experience, yet it embodies so much of the spirit and folklore of Australia.

Outback Stations was born from a competition on the Station Photos page to show a day in the life of an outback station. The response was positively overwhelming - and the very best of the images are featured in this book. Like the Facebook page, this book is a celebration of country Australia and the way we live and enjoy life on the land.

About the Author

Dan McIntosh is the real deal. He’s a bloke who has lived his whole life in the bush and has a boundless love for the land, which he expresses through his photography. Working as a shearer and cook at numerous outback stations, often hundreds of kilometres from the nearest town, he’s captured the true character of the locals and the beauty of the landscape. He has won several photography competitions and recently was awarded a prize in the Australian Outback Photo Awards in Brisbane.

Brings Northern Territory Alive

5

This is a great collection of photos and limited text. It really gives a reader the visual flavour of the Northern Territory. Images are beautiful and skilfully made by local people. They make the Territory look stunning but no more beautiful than it really is. Be warned! If you have never been to the Northern Territory, it will give you the urge to go. I'm not a great fan of glossy publicity shots of places. This book is not that at all. It's great.
