5 things I learnt in New Zealand

I recently returned from photographing a short campaign for Tourism New Zealand, which involved exploring the west coast of the south island. This was my second time in this country and really solidified my belief that this is one of the most beautiful places on...

Arms Of The Almighty

“Keep comparing yourself to others and you’ll forget who you truly are”. I wrote those words to accompany an image on Instagram a few weeks ago. I’m not sure if I had heard those words somewhere else before but either way, they came to mind...

The Ancient Of Days – Cathedral Rocks Kiama

I debated with myself about writing this because it has become somewhat a cliche. Describing the lead up to finally photographing a much anticipated scene has become common place. However,  I’ve succumbed, and decided to spend few minutes of my life to pen some...

New Life

Whoa, 4 months since my last blog post. Time has seemingly flown by lately. As much has photography has been close to my heart, my attention has been elsewhere as Renee and I have been preparing for our first child to enter the world. After 40 weeks of pregnancy, I am...

The Hand Of Thor – How To Photograph Lightning

Without a doubt one of the most enjoyable and rewarding type of light to photograph would have to be lightning. With an average duration of just 30 microseconds, catching a lightning bolt is not as hard as you may think in regards to camera settings. It’s being...

The Sands Of Time

Sometimes life just feels hectic doesn’t it. Almost as if everything is moving in fast forward, you blink and the day is already over. Before you know it the week is over, then another month and then the entire year. Photography helps slow down what is often a...

Treasure out at sea

Have you ever looked outside at lunch time and thought to yourself nice clouds about, might get a rainbow at sunset which I should try line up between the wall at Bombo quarry? and then, four hours later, find yourself photographing the exact scene you imagined? No?...

Unicorns and Babies

This week my wife Renee will be 20 weeks pregnant with our first child. It seems like yesterday we found out she was carrying our baby and now she is already half way through her pregnancy. I can’t help but think about how fast time seems to fly by especially in...

Landscape photography tips

I thought I would share a few general tips that may help you when out photographing landscapes. Since picking up a camera, I don’t think I have stopped learning and I am certain I never will. In every photo I have, I can always find at least something I would...

Bombo Quarry

  The below post and images are quite dated. Please click here for new work and a Bombo Quarry location guide. Like many landscape photographers, I am a self taught. After picking up a camera in 2012, I soon realised the best way to figure out what I was doing...

Milford Sound – Where the mountains rise from the sea

It was hard not to have high expectations when visiting Milford Sound. Whenever I mentioned to someone about traveling to New Zealand, Milford was always mentioned in the conversation as a must see. When a place is so hyped up I try and lower my hopes, and as a...

Purakaunui Falls – The star of absolution

The Purakaunui Falls are an extremely popular waterfall located in The Catlins in the southern South Island of New Zealand. I usually try to avoid locations that have been shot to death by photographers but some places deserve a visit no matter what, even just to...

Why I am a photographer

This image below, “refine and reflect” is a personal favorite. For me, it sums up why  I am a photographer. I sometimes ask myself why I put so much time and energy into this art. For some, photography is a career and a camera is a tool. For me,...

The Northern lights Canada

Thanks to the guys at Tourism Canada, I have just returned from a short tour of the small town of  Yellowknife in the North Western Territories Canada. The primary purpose of this trip was to behold and photograph the glorious northern lights. To be a part of this...

The year that was 2013

Reflecting back on 2013, I don’t think I could pick a favorite photo in particular. Most photographs that I’ve made public are special to me in one way or another. In the last 12 months I’ve traveled to so many new places and experienced countless...

Shaped by time

Shaped by time I recently spent two sunrises on the Sapphire coast of NSW. Here at Bermagui, lies two of my favourite rock formations to shoot, Camel rock and Horse head rock. I had only photographed this area once before and was eager to return. Horse head rock is...

Photography is second best

I usually like to take photo’s during the golden hours of the day which is the hours either side of sunrise and sunset. During this time I am looking for the light to do something extraordinary. Now one thing I have learnt is that the sky is stubborn and...

Meridian

Yes, another blog post related to Cathedral Rocks! I can’t help it, this place is epic. It actually turns out that this seascape has been a source of inspiration since the first Europeans settled on the this little island known as Australia. The image below was...

Dog days

Feeling exhausted after a few busy days, I recently decided to go and lose myself in the forest and unwind. Sometimes when I go out with my camera I bring my chocolate Labrador Milo along with me. Being just two years old, Milo can sometimes be a handful. He really...

Where the soul finds rest

Cathedral Rocks Kiama is located on the south coast of NSW Australia. This magnificent rock formation is  about half hour drive from where I live in Wollongong.  When I first got into photography, a follower on instagram mentioned that I should check this place out....
