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.

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.
