Beautiful Pelorus

One of the advantages of writing my own blog is I get to look back on past assignments and reminisce. This was a short trip but one filled with amazing scenery and friendly people. I had the pleasure of photographing a Coral Princess cruise from Townsville to Cairns, sailing through the beautiful waters of the... Continue Reading →

Cook’s View

Sure there's a few more houses but you have to think this view hasn't changed a hell of a lot in the last couple of hundred years. The Endeavour River in Cooktown provided a safe haven for Captain Cook and his crewmen in June of 1770. Having just extricated themselves from a prickly situation on... Continue Reading →

And I'm usually so busy watching the road that I never even notice this incredible view right in front of me. Until, one particular day, I was driving along... Continue Reading →

Street Photography in a rural city

Street photography is fun. Just wandering around, you and your camera, looking for little slices of life to capture. Relying on serendipity. Blending in. The original reality TV. But street photography is not so easy in a rural town. When the place you live is 20 blocks by 20 blocks it's easy to lose yourself... Continue Reading →

Living life the traditional way

A few years ago now I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a few days up on Cape York with Cathy Freeman, the world-famous aboriginal runner. I was the stills photographer on a TV shoot where she would visit remote aboriginal communities and learn about the local culture. Our trip was to the remote western... Continue Reading →

Orpheus beauty

Far north Queensland is home to one of the most renowned Marine Science university degrees in the world. Done through James Cook University, one of the highlights of the course is a trip to the beautiful Orpheus Island. I had an opportunity to spend some time photographing the facilities and this was the view that... Continue Reading →
