I’ve been a journalist since Jesus was a boy. Well, almost that long!
Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to work in Australia and overseas for News Corp, the Nine Network, Channel 10, Radio 2UE and Talking Lifestyle.
I’m also the founder of Mosman Collective, an exciting new venture showcasing the magic and beauty of our area – while promoting local business and people.
I have a deep and lasting connection with Mosman - and it plays a big part in my daily life, as a busy mum of three school aged children.
If you’re a brand or a business looking to get your message across with a tailored campaign and authentic, unique storytelling, drop me a line and let’s chat!
Graham Monro is a Master Photographer, a passionate local - and he's also founder of gm photographics.
“I’m doing what I love – photographing people. All of my travels and jobs have helped me build a connection with people. To me it’s not a career; it’s a lifestyle that I chose and love and need.”
For over 40 years, Graham has honed his craft as a professional photographer. Whether he’s on the beach or in a client’s home, Graham is always learning and says that every job makes him a better photographer.
We are so blessed to have Graham on board at Mosman Collective (as our exclusive photographer!) and his stunning images are featured on all of our pages.
Graham is also continuing to build gm photographics, now located in the heart of Mosman - and when he’s not behind the lens, you’ll find him mountain biking and kayaking locally.

INTRODUCING OUR CONTRIBUTORS!

Growing up in Mosman, Peta knows the area like the back of her hand, and still recalls the first time she came to our beautiful suburb.
“I remember being in the back of my parents’ car, heading down to play tee ball near HMAS Penguin and being enchanted by the Federation shops along Military Rd,” she says.
It’s this passion for Mosman that Peta hopes to share with our readers, as a regular contributor for Mosman Collective.
It’s no secret that Lisa Hector loves a good time … just look at this beautiful, smiling face!
Lisa recently upped stumps from rural Scotland to start a new life in Sydney with her husband and two kids.
Leaving behind a much-loved brood of feathered and furry pets wasn't easy, but Moss the Black Lab won the golden ticket and is now enjoying the Sydney sunshine too!
Until recently, Lisa ran her own business from home in Scotland - designing and making a range of home and fashion accessories, running workshops, and fulfilling her love of baking with a pop-up tea shed and plants for sale.
She also has enjoyed writing for well-known gardener and author Sarah Raven, “The Scottish Country Gardener” - and has recently been featured in the book “The Garden Photography Workshop”, by Andrea Jones.
Lisa’s home and garden have been featured in magazines and she loves Instagram!
Samantha McNamara delivers bespoke fashion styling services that focus on refining a client’s own distinctive style. With formal training in personal, celebrity and wardrobe

The Mosman mum believes how we dress is a reflection of who we are - and how we want to live.
“I see my job as helping people display the best version of themselves to the world –whether that’s in the workplace, at a wedding or on the weekend,” she says.
