Surrounded by nature

One thing about living in a semi-rural area is you can become a bit blase to the beauty of nature around you. I'm more likely to get angry at the stuff that drops out of this beautiful Golden Penda on to my car than to take the time to appreciate the beauty of the flower... Continue Reading →

A crater full of fun

When it heats up on the coast it's pretty unbearable. Temperatures hit the mid-30s and, until we get some rain to cool things off again, the aircon is your best friend. But being stuck in the house all day is pretty boring. There's a reason we live in a place of such natural beauty and... Continue Reading →

Froggies and bananas

Sometimes the photo gods bless us. Often they just leave us fuming but every so often they throw us a bone. That was the case for this photo. I had been photographing a banana farm for a morning down in the small town of Tully, a couple of hours south of Cairns. At this stage... Continue Reading →

Whenever visitors come we usually end up trundling up here so they can tick it off the bucket list. But, as with most iconic locations,... 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 →
