Rams Head Ranges

Being blessed with an amazing sunset and calm weather while camping in the Snowy Mountains during September last year was a highlight of 2014 photography-wise for me.

Having found these rocks and this composition near to our camp site earlier in the afternoon keeping the surrounding area free of my boot prints was a constant task as I continued to explore the area.

As the sunset lit up the sky I tried a few compositions and also shot frames to use in the star blend in my previous post.

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.

Wilson Bay NZ

Recently I had a chance to go through my images from April’s NZ trip and found this one, I have had this image in the back of my head for awhile now and havent been able to get to it, so glad i found a few hours to go through the back log of images that i have taken so far this year.

When i shot this image I shot it with B&W conversion in mind, couldn’t even consider it in colour and I think it works perfectly, the B&W shows up the contrasts of the early morning light spilling over the mountains out of the frame to camera left and striking this hill side showing up all the texture of these amazing NZ mountains.

Turimetta Beach 2-7-2011


Decided to concentrate on the rocks after another cloudless dawn at Turimetta beach, got soaked but had fun.

Wellington Point QLD


While in Brisbane for work over the weekend i was lucky enough to have some free time on Sunday and took a Dusk workshop with and Photography.

Had a great time creating some images around Welligton Point, here are a few of my favorites.

Curl Curl Sunrise 5/6/2011


There were some big waves at Nth Curl Curl a few weekends ago, the sun hit this 1 set perfectly as it crashed on the rocks but after that the light went flat and i went home for breakfast.

Shelly Beach 5/15/2011


Couple of shots from an early morning at Shelly Beach in Sydney.


I think i took too many cameras with me but luckily the carpark is really close.
While waiting for a long exposure I played around with an infrared converted D70s (self portrait, pic 4) and also shot a few rolls of 120 with my old Hasselblad, its film so I have to wait and see what they come out like but I love using that camera as it has the best finder ever (pic 3) and film is awesome.

Turimetta Beach 28-5-2011


Got up early last weekend and went down to Turimetta beach for sunrise, was a little disapointed with the cloud cover, when i left my house at 4:30am the clouds overhead were nice and wispy (40 mins from beaches) and at the beach there were NO clouds except the band along the horizon 🙁 . Im still waiting for a really dramatic sky so will have a few more early mornings at Turimetta in the future. I liked these images best.

Ellis Beach Sunrise


I was lucky enough to shoot with Gareth Kelly last week while on holiday in Cairns, Nth Queensland.


Waking up at 4:25am while on holiday was hard but once we were out on the highway on the way to Ellis Beach (just north of Cairns) i knew it was going to be worth it, the clouds that has been hanging around the previous day were clearing up and the sunrise was looking like it would be a good one.


A few hours with Gareth was a great way to spend an otherwise wasted morning while on holiday (well a sleep in is nice) he answered all my questions, what printer/paper he uses, traveling with film cameras, planning photo trips, operating a large format field camera, and many many more, we got some great photos in a location i wouldn’t have known existed and i was back before my wife woke up, perfect morning.


Some of my favourite images from the morning are above, Enjoy.
