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 →

It doesn’t have to be distant

This is the view driving down a local street to get to my house. I have driven along this road thousands of times over the years. 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 →

In this era of $1 stock photography and millions of images being added to Social Media accounts all over the world every second, well you just can't compete against that... Continue Reading →

Lizard by name, paradise by nature

Another one of those gigs where you're pretty much packed and on the plane before you've hung up the phone.   Destinasian is a wonderful travel and lifestyle magazine run out of Indonesia. They called me up to see whether I'd like to spend a couple of days photographing a luxury, no kids, island resort... Continue Reading →

A centre of discovery

The Daintree National Park covers a vast area of over 1200 square kilometres. But the area that the average tourist gets to see? Not so vast. For those without trekking boots and an adventurous spirit your visit is restricted to a much smaller area. And for those without wings your area is even smaller! Not... Continue Reading →
