CAPTURE AUSTRALIA THE ANNUAL 2012 FEATURES ANTARCTIC IMAGES

Hot on the heals of finding one of my favourite Antarctica images was photograph of the day at National Geographic’s website I discovered that Capture Magazine (Australia’s top selling Pro Photography magazine) also picked up two photographs from the same trip and featured them in their Annual which was released last week. This is the second […]

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTO OF THE DAY

It is always a pleasant surprise when a photograph is picked up and featured by National Geographic magazine so I was very pleased this morning to find that one of my favourite images from my last Antarctica Expedition was featured as the photo of the day on the 6th of November over at National Geographic’s […]

ROYAL CANADIAN GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY 2013 CALENDAR

One of the real joys of Polar photography (both North and South) is the abundance of wildlife and the myriad of photographic opportunities available for not only landscape, but also wildlife photography. I am still sorting through the thousands of frames I shot of penguins and seals on my last Antarctic trip even as next […]

ANTARCTICA DEBRIEF REPORT

It has taken me longer than I had hoped to pull together this post Antarctica round-up debrief. Between jet-lag (which I just seem to take an inordinate amount of time to get over when crossing so many time zones – particularly between the Americas and Australia), Christmas, New Year social functions, a stomach upset, my […]

SUMATRAN TIGER – WILDLIFE PORTRAITS PROJECT

It has been a long time since I have last posted a wildlife photograph but I had a good opportunity / excuse a couple of weeks ago to test out my new Canon 1D MKIV at the Melbourne Zoo (I guess that makes it ‘quasi-wild’). This was simply an opportunity to machine gun through a […]

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICS GREAT MIGRATIONS

The Big Picture has some wonderful wildlife photography from National Geographic’s new epic documentary series “Great Migrations“.”Move as millions, survive as one”. That is the subtitle to the new seven-part television series from National Geographic called “Great Migrations”. Animals great and small are on the move around the world, chasing resources in dangerous journeys that […]

ICELAND DISPATCH #9 – ICELANDIC HORSES

One of the things I was hoping to be able to photograph in Iceland was the beautiful Icelandic horses that are found throughout the countryside. These Icelandic horses are the original descendants from the first horses the Norse bought with them when they came to iceland hundreds of years ago. Today they are virtually disease […]

WILDLIFE BIRDS #3

Continuing the ‘avian’ theme this Pelican at Healesville seemed more than content to pose for what was probably the easiest animal portrait I have yet taken in this series. Content at Rest

WILDLIFE BIRDS #2

Another from the same photo shoot as the Emu photograph ‘Eye-to-Eye‘. This time of the Australian Cockatoo in flight  at Healesville. I shot this with the Canon 300mm F2.8L IS wide open at F2.8 ISO400 1/2000th of a second to freeze the action. Tracking birds in flight is not easy – this was one of […]

WILDLIFE – BIRDS

I am starting to wind down my Wildlife Portraits project as its only a week now until I leave for Iceland and I have a seemingly never ending list of things I need to complete before I can leave. The plan was to run the project up until I left for Iceland. However, I have […]

WILDLIFE PORTRAITS PROJECT – PARROT

Birds have not been high on the list of subjects for my wildlife portrait photography. The longest lens I own is a Canon 300mm F2.8L IS; which even when coupled with my 1.4 Tele-Extender on my full frame 1DS MKIII still only gives me quite limited reach for photographing birds. Most serious bird photographers I […]

NEW PRINT AVAILABILITY AND PRICING

WILDLIFE PORTRAITS PROJECT – AUSTRALIAN DINGO

Every time I have visited Healesville Sanctuary in the past to photograph wildlife the Dingo’s have been sleeping (I think they might actually sleep more than cats). On my last visit they were up and moving around so I couldn’t resist ripping off a few frames on my way past. This frame ended up as […]

SNOW LEOPARD – ITS A MAC THING

It isn’t really a ‘Mac Thing’ (or maybe it is!) – But the Snow Leopard is definitely my ‘favourite’ of the big cats (I also have a soft spot for the Persian Leopard); which accounts for my continual return visits to photograph them whenever possible at the Melbourne Zoo. This photograph was taken during the […]

WILDLIFE PORTRAITS PROJECT – LIONESS

The more time I spend photographing wildlife the more I am enjoying it – what started out as a bit of an experiment to see what sort of wildlife photographs I could make as a precursor to a possible African safari next year is slowly turning into a type and style of photography that I […]

WILDLIFE PORTRAITS PROJECT – SUMATRAN TIGER CUBS

This is definitely an ‘Awwww…. isn’t that cute’ photograph; but I just couldn’t help myself – Sumatran Tiger cubs are too cute! And the opportunity to photograph a couple of these endangered Tiger cubs doesn’t present itself very often. For the record these cubs were born in captivity at the Melbourne Zoo a few weeks […]
