New work and personal favourites from 2016

On both a professional and personal level, the past 12 months has been engaging, challenging and rewarding, all of which I’m grateful for. Running workshops across several countries and locations as well as being a husband, father and son has left little room...
Hong Kong – Locations for nature lovers

Hong Kong – Locations for nature lovers

It’s mid December and I’m seated on a Cathay Pacific flight to Sydney, returning home after 5 days exploring the natural landscapes of Hong Kong. Yes, Hong Kong. Much more than a vibrant, bustling city, HK boasts some incredible natural scenery from the...
East Coast NSW – A family road trip

East Coast NSW – A family road trip

After a huge year traveling abroad, I was more than eager to hit the road recently with my wife and son on a road trip for the guys at Britz and Maui. This wasn’t my first time traveling by camper van, however it was my first time doing so with a pregnant wife...
Castaway Island Fiji – A week in paradise

Castaway Island Fiji – A week in paradise

After a busy year and a new born baby on the way, a family vacation was well overdue. Now despite being a sucker for cold, rugged landscapes, I really owed my wife some quality time in the sun. So with that in mind we headed to the vibrant turquoise waters of Fiji for...

Bombo Quarry – Photography Location Guide

When it comes to landscape/seascape photography locations, Bombo Quarry is easily up there with the best in the world. A short drive from my home, Bombo is a place that has inspired much of my early coastal photography and after countless visits I’m still more...

Memoirs of Canada

Memoirs of Canada

Looking at the scene before me, my mind can’t help but wander. Back to a time before roads and trains, when a cell phone wasn’t checked every 5 minutes in case we might be missing out on something. Although it is our modern necessities that have helped...
A weekend on Hayman Island

A weekend on Hayman Island

With all the travel I do, quality family time is something I really cherish. So when any opportunity comes up for my family to travel with me, I am more than stoked. Thanks to Mastercard AU, I recently spent a few days on the stunning and iconic One&Only Hayman...
Behind the shot – Resurgence

Behind the shot – Resurgence

To avoid coming across as pretentious, I don’t often describe my images or what goes into capturing them. Sure, it’s not often that a piece truly resonates with me personally, perhaps half a dozen times a year, so I’m happy to make an exception when...
Snowfall – Laurel Hill Sugar Pine Forest

Snowfall – Laurel Hill Sugar Pine Forest

Somewhat of a rare occurrence, capturing snow at Laurel Hills Sugar Pine Forest has plagued my mind ever since my first and only shoot here back in 2014. After some missed opportunities and a failed attempt, July 2016 saw the vision become reality. Keep an eye on my...
Alberta Canada – Photographing Banff and Jasper

Alberta Canada – Photographing Banff and Jasper

The clock has ticked over to 1am, I’m sitting on a plane soaring back to Australia after an unforgettable 10 days in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta Canada. Exhausted, my mind is spinning reflecting back on what would have to be one of my most memorable trips to date....
Photography Tip – How To Shoot Sun Stars

Photography Tip – How To Shoot Sun Stars

Ever since I discovered that some people assumed my sun stars (aka sun bursts) were added in Photoshop, I’ve been meaning on writing a blog on how to shoot them. I’m passionate about getting an image right in camera and whether sunrise or sunset,...
Mountain Designs Hiking Gear Review

Mountain Designs Hiking Gear Review

I consider myself a pretty light hearted guy but there is a couple of things I do take seriously, namely my photography and outdoor equipment. These are the two things I completely rely upon when I’m out in the field and need to be able to trust, particularly...
5 must do’s in New Zealand’s Mackenzie Region

5 must do’s in New Zealand’s Mackenzie Region

One of the most common questions I’m asked is ‘what’s the one place to visit in New Zealand?’ Now it’s not an easy task to narrow all of NZ’s goodness down to just one place but if there was one location that summed it all up for me...
Iceland Road Trip

Iceland Road Trip

There’s not much to say about Iceland that hasn’t already been said. Its raw, rugged and diverse landscape is like no other and I can tell you now that this video certainly doesn’t do justice to my experience here. I ventured to Iceland at the end of...
Tasmania – The Great Eastern Drive

Tasmania – The Great Eastern Drive

I recently travelled with my family along one of Australia’s greatest drives, the ‘Great Eastern Drive’ in Tasmania and let me tell you, they really have it all down there. From mountains and forests to white sandy beaches, cosy cafes and miles of...
The Northern Lights – Time Lapse

The Northern Lights – Time Lapse

During my road trip in Iceland, I captured some brief time lapse footage of the aurora. There really is no words or images that can do justice to what these moments were like to experience first hand but I hope you get a sense of how incredible it was. Please watch in...
After 10 days in Iceland, my life won’t be the same

After 10 days in Iceland, my life won’t be the same

Iceland is a country that has long been on my bucket, a place that I’ve seen thousands of images of but needed to witness with my own eyes. After day 1 all my expectations were met. After a full 10 days I knew life wouldn’t be the same again. Being exposed to such...
12 Photos that will make you want to visit New Zealand

12 Photos that will make you want to visit New Zealand

From rolling green hills, cloud piercing mountains, forests, waves and way too many attractions I can mention in an opening sentence, it’s just not fair that one little country tucked down on the Tasman can boast so much natural beauty. Alas, this is New Zealand and...
Milford Sound – Definitely Worth The Drive

Milford Sound – Definitely Worth The Drive

Milford Sound is a place that really needs no introduction. Located in the Fiordland National Park on the South West of New Zealand’s South Island, this slice of pre-historic paradise is raw, dramatic, captivating and remote. After almost two years since my last...
Swimming With Turtles – Tropical North Queensland

Swimming With Turtles – Tropical North Queensland

Finally! Over the past couple of years I have been privileged to snorkel in some amazing locations off the east and west coast of Australia, all which have regular turtle sightings. Despite this, I never had any encounters myself. I was beginning to lose hope. But all...
New Zealand’s Must See Region

New Zealand’s Must See Region

So you’re heading to New Zealand’s South Island but not sure exactly where to go? I’ve visited enough times this year to raise some alarm bells at customs, memorise the AirNZ safety vids and make a few mates at the local supermarkets. With that in mind I feel like I...
A Family Holiday To New Zealand

A Family Holiday To New Zealand

A big part of my job involves travel and although it can be amazing, I certainly do miss my wife and son whilst on the road. After a handful of trips to NZ this year I still couldn’t get enough, so Renee and I decided it would be a perfect place to take our son...

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

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...

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....
