MARCH PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MONTH – THE FORTRESS

I have a penchant for icebergs, the more wild, rugged and castellated the better. This iceberg, roughly the size of a sports stadium and around six stories high in the Gerlache Strait in Antarctica rates as the most spectacular I have ever encountered and is a very worthy candidate for the March Photograph of the […]

I am very pleased to announce that my 2012 and 2013 Iceland Workshops are now CPD (Continual Professional Development) accredited. For AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers) members this means that you can now accrue CPD points toward your required annual target by attendance at one of my workshops.

CAFFEINATED PHOTOGRAPHERS – PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE WEEK

I am pleased to have been asked by the good folks who run and operate the Caffeinated Photographers Facebook page to be their Photographer of the Week this week. Upon receipt of the invitation my interest was immediately peaked by the use of the word ‘caffeinated’ in their title since I consider myself somewhat of […]

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG – FEATURE MAGAZINE ARTICLE FEBRUARY / MARCH 2012

The current February / March edition of Australian Digital Photography magazine that is just hitting the news stands is tagged as ‘The Landscape Issue’ and has an eight page feature article on my photography (sub-titled ‘Insights into the world of extreme landscape photography’) from Iceland.  This was an interesting interview for me as much of […]

ICELAND 2013 EXPEDITION : JULY 13th – JULY 22nd WAITING LIST ONLY

I had been planning to announce that registrations are now officially open for the July workshop I am leading to Iceland in 2013. However, due to client expressions of interest, pre-registration and bookings the expedition is already sold out.  If you are interested in photographing in the amazingly geologically diverse country of Iceland then you can still […]

CANONS ‘X’ FACTOR & NIKONS 5D MKII KILLER

The Internet forums were abuzz with talk of the merging of the Canon 1DS and 1D lines into the new ‘multi-media powerhouse’ 1DX DSLR, when Canon announced it late in 2011. I actually predicted the merging of the 1DS and 1D lines in my blog HERE just prior to leaving for Antarctica. However, I was […]

ANTARCTICA – THE LAST BASTION : WHEN INSTINCT TRUMPS PRECONCEPTION

An overtly strong preconception of how a new location or subject will photograph is an all too-easy pitfall for the landscape photographer to fall into. It is a problem I have discussed with other photographers, and I find myself struggling with the problem every now and then. As a landscape photographer who is forever chasing […]

FEBRUARY PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MONTH – PENGUINS ADRIFT IN SNOW STORM II

I have updated the photograph of the month for February with one of my favourite landscape / wildlife images from my expedition to Antarctica late last year. This photograph of penguins adrift on an iceberg was taken during overcast conditions and very heavy snow fall from the deck of our ship the Ocean Nova. What […]

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY+DESIGN – COVER AND FEATURE ARTICLE FEBRUARY / MARCH EDITION

Having a photograph published in a photography magazine (or any magazine for that matter) is a lot of fun and will always puts a smile on a photographers face. Being interviewed and having a multi-page feature on your photography published in that magazine will fix that smile for at least as long as the issue […]
