And the WINNER is...


Andy Lloyd is coming to Lord Howe IslandAnd the winner of the Best Job in Australia is.... Andy Lloyd.

Andy is a professional film maker and photographer with the perfect package of skills and experience to capture Lord Howe Island. Andy has filmed for ‘adventure’ brands such as GoPro, Red Bull, V Energy Drink, Hurley and SkullCandy. He’s also dabbled in the fashion world with films of Megan Gale, Jessinta Campbell and Ashley Hart.

As a professional snowboarder, Andy learnt to film mountain sports in spectacular locations, but his real talent – the bit that caught our attention – is his ability to weave ‘adventure sport’ and ‘nature’ films into something moody and inspiring. His films have a flow that we didn’t see in the other entries, and his change of tempo and longer shots are ideal for the HD panorama on offer at Lord Howe. When we said that we were looking to do something different from the typical ‘destination’ clip, maybe in the style of Barossa Be Consumed, Andy sent us an extra clip that pretty much sealed the deal.

The other finalists - Olly, Geoff, Oliver and Richard – were all exceptional and each got a number one vote from the people whose opinion we sought over the last week. Olly Sindle, though, was clearly the winner of the popular vote on Facebook, and in recognition of this, we’d like to offer him 5 nights at Pinetrees on the house.

Thanks to everyone who participated – we’ve had feedback from hundreds of people – and stay tuned for Andy’s clips later in the year. In the mean time, have a look at his work at and
