Contemplating the serenity

I've made no secret about this being my favourite little piece of rainforest in far north Queensland. Just north of Port Douglas, the easily accessible Mossman Gorge is a popular place with both tourists and locals alike. The water is always refreshingly cold in summer or winter, and this little swimming hole is the most... Continue Reading →

Jump!

As photographers we learn to appreciate light in all its forms. When working with natural light we are totally at the mercy of the elements, which can often mean waiting for hours, if not days, for the conditions to create the image we see in our mind's eye. When we work with flash, however, we... Continue Reading →

BTS

Here's another outtake from a really fun photo shoot. A BTS if you like. And just to prove that I'm still young and hip, I actually know what it stands for! Behind the Scenes.   Lying on the ground there is good buddy Dave (@dcphoto). Dave and I were both contracted to photograph a new... Continue Reading →

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 →

Baseball girls

Following on from my evolution into an off-camera flash kinda guy, here's some happy looking girls from the Cairns Junior Baseball League under lights at the new Walker Rd baseball complex in Edmonton. Both my boys play baseball and I have coached for a number of years. I don't often get to take photographs of... Continue Reading →

Always Walk Forward

To stay relevant as a professional artist you need to be constantly pushing yourself. To stay interested as an amateur artist you need to be constantly pushing yourself. For me, this image represents a major step in my development as a photographer and my ability to create different types of imagery. This is actually the... Continue Reading →

A life well lived

One of the best things about being a photographer is the opportunity to see places and meet people you would never normally get the chance to. I can't imagine I'm going to be a multi-millionaire any time in the near future. I don't buy lottery tickets and, as far as I know, aren't related to... 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 →
