In 2000 he became one of the founding directors of Oculi, an Australian based collective of award-winning visual storytellers offering a narrative of contemporary life.
Also in 2000, Hunt returned to Adelaide for three years where he trained his focus on the worldwide documentation of horse culture, which has been his major personal project to date. After Adelaide, Hunt spent 3 years in Melbourne again working for a number of magazines, news agencies and corporate clients. From 2006-2014 Hunt had been a staff photographer for Fairfax Media in Brisbane. He recently returned to the freelance sphere and is once again working for a number of publications and corporations within Australia and abroad including Australian Associated Press and Getty Images.
