For those of you who may be unfamiliar with X-Rite they produce the well known X-Rite Color Checker Passport, the i1 Display Pro colorimeters for calibrating computer displays and a whole host of other color […]

NIK RADIO INTERVIEW

Over the last year I have become a really big fan of several of the Nik software plug-ins for the Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom programs. In particular, Silver EFX Pro 2, Viveza 2 and Nik Sharpener Pro 3 have become indispensable tools in my image workflow. Not to mention the amazing and very popular Snapseed […]

RESOURCE PHOTO.VIDEO.LIFESTYLE INTERVIEW

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. This interview was particularly good fun for me as the nature of the questions gave me an opportunity to talk about how I got my start in photography, in addition to […]

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 […]

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 […]

TASMANIA 40° SOUTH FEATURES ‘COLORS OF ICELAND’ EXHIBITION

CRADLE MOUNTAIN – TASMANIA ‘COLOURS OF ICELAND’ EXHIBITION

I am heading off to Tasmania this weekend for a few days to visit the Wilderness Gallery where my latest exhibition ‘Colours of Iceland‘ is currently on display. I always enjoy going to Tasmania and am looking forward to spending some time photographing around Dove Lake at Cradle Mountain; weather and light permitting. The weather […]

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 […]

I am very pleased to announce the release the official Silvershotz 2011 Portfolio Award Press Release. I received notification a few weeks ago that my photography had been selected to be included in the prestiguous 2011 Folio Annual as one of 31 sucessful photographers from 12 countries around the world.

‘DAWN TILL DUSK’ – F11 MAGAZINE COVER PHOTOGRAPH AND FEATURE ARTICLE

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 […]

CANON AUSTRALIA EOS1 WALL JUDGE – ‘ORDER IN NATURE’

Every second month Canon Australia asks a professional photographer to set a challenge and guest judge the Canon EOS 1 Wall. 1Wall is exactly that: A wall that only the very best photos submitted for judging make it onto. The pro photographer sets a theme, and participants have the chance to submit the best photograph […]

CRADLE MOUNTAIN TASMANIA – THE BALLROOM

One of the most accessible and easier walks/treks at Cradle Mountain is the 2 hour stroll around Dove Lake at the base of Cradle Mountain. The walk is relatively flat (only a short uphill section – depending on which way you walk it), well sheltered from the weather for most of its length and takes […]

TASMANIA – CRADLE MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS GALLERY EXHIBITION

In my last blog entry I made mention that whilst I was at Cradle Mountain in Tasmania I had visited the Wilderness Gallery located adjacent to the Cradle Mountain Chateau. In the interests of full disclosure it was a pre-arranged visit not without ulterior motive. I have visited the gallery before (Australia’s largest wilderness gallery; […]

BACK FROM CRADLE MOUNTAIN TASMANIA

I am back from four days photography in and around the Cradle Mountain National Park in Tasmania. The weather and conditions were not great for this trip and as such I actually did more hiking than photography – the light and weather were most un-coperative. Apart from a few hours either side of midday the […]

TASMANIA – CRADLE MOUNTAIN TRIP

I am heading to Tasmania later this week for a few days photography in and around the Cradle Mountain area. Cradle Mountain is my favourite location in Tasmania for landscape and wilderness photography – it is an iconic location. This is I think my fifth or possibly sixth trip to Cradle Mountain and probably my […]

2010 & 2011 – WHAT ELSE?

With Iceland ‘ticked’ for 2010 (although I can hardly wait to go back) I have started to turn my attention to other photographic expeditions for the remainder of this year and next year. Even though, I am still sorting, editing, processing and printing photographs from Iceland (and will be for many months I think) I […]
