I was recently interviewed by Resource Photo.Video.Lifestyle magazine about my landscape photography and the content of the interview is now online at their website HERE.

NEW GURA GEAR BATAFLAE BACKPACK REVIEW – IMPROVING ON PERFECTION

How do you take what is widely regarded by many photographers as one of the finest camera bags on the market and make it even better? I was pondering this when the guys at Gura Gear first told me that they were working on an update to the very popular Kiboko 30L camera bag along […]

Perhaps nowhere else […]

RETAIL THERAPY – PHOTOGRAPHER STYLE

I admit to being a complete shopaholic when it comes to photographic accessories. I just keep on buying different brands and models of ‘things’ until I finally settle on a product I am completely satisfied with. Online reviews are useful and aid me in making a purchase decision, but it is really my own use […]

2012 AND ONWARD – WHATS IN STORE?

2011 was a big year for my photography. I travelled to many wild and wonderful locations throughout the year including Tasmania, the South Island of New Zealand (I never get tired of New Zealand’s amazing landscapes), Antarctica; which was a life long ambition and an absolutely amazing experience, and many more places throughout Australia. I […]

MAHOMETS TOMB – MOUNT BUFFALO

It has been a while since I have posted a landscape photograph from my own home country. Partly because I have just been flat out with other things and also because I had not really had a chance to sit and sort through a series of photographs I shot toward the end of Winter up […]

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 […]

Over recent years traditional paper magazines have been adding more and more online content to their websites in an effort to keep their readers interested, engaged and to maintain their relevance in a world increasingly enamoured with (must have it now) online content. These magazines walk a somewhat tenuous line between satisfying their traditional readership […]

AIRPORT UPDATE – AIR NEW ZEALAND TO THE RESCUE…(MAYBE)

After multiple phone calls to Virgin Blue, American Express and Air New Zealand I have just been able to secure a seat on a delayed (due to volcanic ash) Air New Zealand flight to Christchurch late this afternoon that was scheduled to leave this morning. That is the good news. The bad news is the […]
