NEW ZEALAND WILDLIFE – WHALES

One of  my favourite expressions in photography is ‘It’s not a chiche if I haven’t done it before.’ Meaning of course, a photograph may have been taken hundreds or even thousands of times by other photographers, but is not something I have ever photographed before and therefore not a cliche. I dont know who first […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Merry Christmas! May it be full of joy, good food, good wine and good luck for the new year!

REDWOODS AT THE OTWAYS

Whilst down the coast for work last weekend I took the opportunity to squeeze in some photography at a relatively unknown location deep in the Otway forest. The area is simply known as ‘The Redwoods’ and is comprised of a relatively small plantation of the giant Californian Sequoia Redwood trees. These trees grow to be some of the largest […]

TASMANIA – CRESCENT BAY

Sometimes it takes several edits to make sure I have selected all the best frames from a given shoot and today was no exception.

NEW ZEALAND – LAST LIGHT OVER COOK AND TASMAN

Nothing else quite says ‘Alpine’ like the last rays of sunlight reflected on snow capped mountains. With temperatures plummeting to a frigid -19 degrees Celsius as the sun dipped below the horizon this was one of the last frames I reeled off from the small mountain helicopter before we returned to base for the evening (for […]

MOUNT BUFFALO – THE CASTLE

It’s December and it is now summer here in Australia – my least favourite time of year for photography. Autumn and Winter are my preferred seasons for landscape work. I far prefer the cooler weather and the snow and ice of the alpine regions to the blazing heat and humidity of the Australian summer (I […]
