Equipped with a GoPro, Logan thought it would be fun to capture a collection of moments, transitioning them with his signature camera high five. His video went viral, quickly collecting more than 5 million views, and the story of the tradie who broke the internet became an instant sensation.
Genuinely talented as a photographer and videographer, he’s travelled to some of the remotest places on Earth, capturing some truly breath-taking moments. With a style of content defined by its own unique flavour, Logan combines drones. DSLR and GoPros to take his audience on a journey to jaw-dropping vistas and stunning locations.
