The Real Christmas Island

My skin glistens in a fusion of sweat and fresh spring water as the late afternoon light filters through the thick jungle surrounds. I’m standing before a remote waterfall 2600 kms west off the coast of mainland Australia, on an island known more for it’s political...

My Top 3 Places To See in South Korea

I recently returned from a week long trip in South Korea on a campaign with Samsung. Here I was a part of the NX Traveler tour and had the privilege of exploring some amazing locations, great company and absorbing the Korean culture. Although I obviously didn’t...

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,...
