South Coast Adventure

I have been wanting to get down to Bermagui and photograph the coast there for over 3 years. Last weekend I finally made it.
While I edit some of the images I captured here is a short timelapse video of the some of the locations of the weekend.
I used a Dynamic Perceptions timelapse slider for the first time and edited in Adobe Premier Pro (first time as well).

Enjoy.

Hanging Rock in the Mist

13/2/2014  –  Hanging Rock, Blue Mountains

 

Spent the morning watching the clouds and mists rolling up the valley from hanging rock.

Such a fantastic way to spend a few hours, the 11km round trip hike was not really that bad either 🙂

Handmade Ceramics now available online!

Exciting news, my handmade photographic ceramics are now available to order online.

I have been making and selling them at local markets for the last 6 months and they have been very popular

So after many requests and lots of work behind the scenes I am excited to get these online as well.

 

My Handmade ceramics are a melding of silver leaf, slide film and resin, all layered together to let light bounce around the image and create beautiful solid pieces of art.

Each ceramic is different as the brush strokes and pouring of the resins created different effects.

 

At the moment I have released a series of B&W ceramics sets (4) online and will be updating soon with a larger ceramic series and a Colour series as well, so keep an eye out.

 

Check out the new page and the Ceramics here.

Loupe Awards, Herald Sun Article

Over last weekend the Herald Sun did an article on the Loupe awards, my Wanaka IR image which won second place in the amateur landscape section was lucky enough to be included.

100Sunrises – January

 

Just a quick gallery of my sunrise images from January.

Looks like there is a bit of a theme going on with lots of seascapes and water flow but I love that style at the moment. Its great to look back on the month and figure out what I want to concentrate on in February.
