CANON ‘GEAR IN ACTION’ INTERVIEW – THE 1DX IN FRANCE, ITALY AND ICELAND 2012

CANON: I was recently interviewed again for Canon Australia’s CPS ‘Gear in Action’ website and the content of the interview is now online at CPS Australia. Unlike my previous interview HERE which primarily focused on Fine Art Printing this time the emphasis was on cameras and my experience with Canon’s new tour-de-force 1DX camera during my recent travels through […]

ANTARCTICA WORKSHOP 2013 – AVAILABILITY UPDATE

A quick availability update of remaining places on the Antarctica Photographic Expedition I am leading with Daniel Bergmann in November next year. There is currently only one triple share male space remaining and two triple share female places. There are still a few Twin Share spaces available and Twin Privates. There is one mini-suite remaining […]

SEPTEMBER PHOTO OF THE MONTH : MOON BEAMS – ICELAND

Unfortunately I am a few days late again updating the photograph of the month for September (I will do my best to break this bad habit next month). I have been snowed under with email and paperwork in the office and have been otherwise head down in some reviews of some very exciting new products […]

ANTARCTICA EXPEDITION 2013 – REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Registrations are now open for a very exciting and unique expedition I am co-leading with Professional Nature and Wildlife Photographer Daniel Bergmann to Antarctica in November 2013.  This has been a trip more than 8 months in the planning and has been designed and structured to provide the very best possible photographic opportunities. It also […]

ICELAND 2012 WORKSHOP DEBRIEF

This expedition report is different from the norm in that I need to preface it with the fact that I was not just visiting Iceland on this trip. Before departing for Iceland I spent three weeks touring France and Italy with my wife. During this time we spent a week immersing ourselves in the wonderful […]

ICELAND 2012 WORKSHOP EXPEDITION COMPLETE

I have just returned from my 2012 Iceland expedition and am currently recovering from jet lag after the more than 34 hours of travel and layovers (including 4 plane rides) from Iceland to Australia. This was an extremely successful workshop trip and it was wonderful to again be photographing under the midnight sun in the […]

CANON 1DX IN THE FRENCH ALPS

One of the real highlights of my trip through France was the opportunity to visit the alpine town of Chamonix. Widely regarded as the mountaineering Mecca of France, Chamonix is a magnet and playground for mountaineers and alpinists from around the world. With its high altitude mountains, precipitous and jagged peaks, and high quality granite […]

CANON 1DX AND FRANCES NOTRE DAME CATHEDRALS

Paris is, of course, well known for its magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral, the sheer scale and majesty of which is biblically awe-inspiring. Photographing the Notre Dame, however, is a challenge. By break of day the building is surrounded by thousands of tourists streaming through its grand doors and climbing its towers, and the numbers do […]

CANON 1DX – MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE

Paris has been the first opportunity I have had to shoot with Canon’s new 1DX multi-media powerhouse camera. I had only limited opportunity to test the camera before I departed for Europe because the camera arrived only a couple of days before my flight departed. With all the delays since its announcement in September last […]

PARIS, VENICE, ICELAND AND AN ARCTIC FOX…

In a few days from now I am heading to Iceland for my 2012 Summer expedition. It has been well over a year since I was last in Iceland and I am very much looking forward to returning to its amazingly varied and ever changing landscape. Before I make my way to Iceland however, I […]

GREAT OCEAN ROAD WORKSHOP OCTOBER 12th – 15th 2012 NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION

I am very excited to announce a brand new photographic workshop to the icons of the Great Ocean Road in Victoria Australia. Perhaps best known for its mighty sea stacks at the iconic 12-Apostles, the Great Ocean Road is one of the worlds leading tourist attractions and is packed with fantastic photographic opportunities. Perhaps nowhere else […]

BATTLE OF THE BIG STOPPERS – LEE vs. HI-TECH PRO 10 STOP ND FILTER SHOWDOWN

The LEE 10 Stop Neutral Density Filter, which is affectionately known as ‘The Big Stopper’, has been a staple part of my filter and photographic kit since it was released by LEE back in 2010. I was fortunate to receive one of the very first production units and have subsequently found ten stops of neutral […]

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 […]

HOW TO: USE LEE GRADUATED ND FILTERS ON THE CANON 17MM F4L TSE LENS

One of my favorite lenses is the Canon 17mm F4L Tilt and Shift, an optically superb lens and one of the sharpest in the Canon wide angle range (along with the 24mm Tilt and Shift). With stellar optical performance and perfect tilt and shift movements, it is the ideal tool for wide-angle landscape photography. Except […]

JUNE PHOTO OF THE MONTH – ‘BLACK DAWN’

Time has really slipped away from me over the last few weeks and I realised this evening that I am already a week late updating my photo of the month for June. This photograph of the Andes Mountain range near Ushuaia in South America was taken from the deck of the Ocean Nova ship as we […]

If you are in Melbourne tomorrow and willing to brave the current spell of bad weather  I will be at the Digital Show at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre for the APPA (Australian Professional Photography Awards). I have a selection of some of my favourite prints on display on a range of  different Moab papers at […]

ZODIAC PHOTOGRAPHY IN ANTARCTICA

One of the most exciting and enjoyable aspects of a photographic trip to Antarctica is the opportunity to climb into a zodiac with like-minded photographers and spend countless hours cruising amongst the spectacular icebergs and glaciers that line the Antarctic Peninsula. For the photographer with a penchant for icy landscapes it just doesn’t get any […]
