At the moment we are experiencing some pretty chilly weather here in the uk and so I wasn’t too surprised when I received an email from one of the stock libraries I contribute content to requesting more weather pictures. Grabbing some nice warm clothes and my gear I set out to top up my portfolio. […]

One of the things I have some across as a travelling photographer is that as soon as people find out your a photographer they would love it if you could just take some photos of this and that. My reaction to this has always been to cringe, my mind racing to the gear I don’t […]

Sometimes the best joke is the worst one …

Breaking a long silence on my blog with a series of images I took last week. These bicycles I found up on the range above Mclaren Vale in South Australia. Beautiful.

Being new to the Ebook format I decided it was about time that I had a look to see what books were out there to spend my hard earned money on. Conveniently this conscientious thought co-insided with an article about a new book released by Alexandre Buisse called Extreme Perspectives, from online blog PictureCorrect. It seemed too good […]

This is my response to a debate that seems to rear its head in the photography industry from time to time. This time it has been dragged up again through an interesting article on David Hobby in Slate magasine. To get a sense of just how bad things are for professional photographers right now, the story […]

After a couple of fortunate events which landed us a free powered pitch in one of the best caravan sites in Torquay (Mainly getting a buy one get one free deal in the reception of the caravan site and finding a $20 note on the floor) We woke refreshed and recharged, our laptops and camera […]

Wilsons Promontory National Park has become our new base camp down by Tidal River. We are helping out at the outdoor cinema here which puts on showings of latest releases twice a week on its open air screen. Driving into Wilsons Promontory was breathtaking, the roads twist and turn through beautiful scenery with colourful birds […]

On this visit to Melbourne it struck me profoundly that this city has to be one of the greatest in the world. This clean efficient city bustles with friendly people and is full of helpful people from shop assistants to the young mother we asked how to use the tram system! The buildings are just […]

We were fortunate to find Tooradin, a little town on the map with not much in it save a petrol station and a couple of shops and cafes. According to our trusty, if not slightly out of date, Camps 4 guide and map there would be somewhere to have a quick shower and use the […]

Having left Phillip Island Emily and I decided to head to the Melbourne area for a couple of days. Emily wanted to visit the Victoria Market, which was vast and one of the best markets I have seen, well worth a visit. Obviously my desire to revisit at a more sedate pace was fuelled by […]

Due to my travels this article is probably a little ‘out of fashion’ That said I feel my 10 cents need be input. From the series of photographs taken by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino this beautiful portrait of Prince William and Kate Middleton to celebrate their engagement is a simple and very pure image. By […]

With the introduction of HD video filming capabilities added to DSLR, coining the term HDSLR given our tendency to refer to everything with confusing letters, it has been inevitable that more photographers would start taking up videography. I have been fortunate in the support of several people who have helped me grasp a few fundamentals […]

Recently I popped in at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart Tasmania. Apart from the historically rich and exciting exhibition about Tasmania’s intriguing history the art gallery upstairs held some treasures. Skipping the stuffed animals part of the exhibition allowed me enough time to browse around the fantastic art exhibits, oil paintings of […]

The other afternoon Emily and I wandered down to Blackmans Bay in Kingston and played around with Emily’s waterproof camera on the beach! For a fun little point and shoot I was impressed with the quality of the images we could get.

Packing for travelling Australia for a year is a challenge for anyone especially when your financing the trip yourself and want to take your DSLR kit with you. I looked online before the trip and it seemed the internet was saturated with flight information for travelling from America to Australia. Flying from the UK it […]

It has been a big surprise for me over the last couple of weeks being in Australia how much I have missed my tripod. It was a decision I didn’t give much thought to whist packing as trying to carry my metal tripod would have taken far too much weight but I am beginning to […]
