I’m off again, this time to Melbourne. My poor blog has been neglected, between editing and putting together a new website for a project I am launching soon, I have been flat out.
Here’s a frame from a recent sunrise e’session with Andy + Marta. Like most of my sunrises, the sun was veiled behind the clouds, but the location was still super awesome and I can’t wait to go back on a bright sunny day, in the middle of the and do a fashion inspired shoot!
(click image to see it twice as big)
Thanks to Andy & Marta for climbing over mossy rocks and risking life and limb for me as we made our way out to this location in the early early hours of the morning.
Lots more blog posts to add when I come back from rainy Melbourne!Read More
Haven’t shared an album design in a while, so thought I’d share a recent one from Jason & Carmen’s Wedding last month. It’s a duo album, in that it includes some matted and some magazine style pages…

Ive back-posted this one, because it has some cracking landscapes!
Naomi, Josiah and I went to the Ken Duncan, Northern Exposure 2006 Photography Workshop on Hamilton Island, Queensland. Ken had some friends with him (left over from the AIPP Breakaway the week before) including Leo Meier (landscape), David Oliver (portraiture), Bruce Pottinger (from L&P) and Nancy & Ray Moxom (3d photography).
Naomi and Josiah relaxed on Hamilton Island while I got to go out on a cruiser, up in a helicopter and dragged my tired self up mountains at stupid times in the morning in the hope of some sunrise shots!
Josiah loved the beaches and sand!
Getting arty with another workshoppers thongs onboard the boat…
This is Ken Duncan lifting his stereo (3d) camera out of the way of a wave rolling in.
Another boat on the beautiful water!

View from our balcony of catseye beach!

There is no alcohol in this drink…
Most likely staring at a plane… Josiah is fascinated by them!
Mode of transport on the island is golf buggies!

A rewarding sunrise
Ken set up some stumps on the beach for a game of cricket
Pretty sure he was out on this ball!
Looking back on my footprints
I have a gazillion more, I may get time one day to post them up here! It was an amazing trip, the location superb and the company unrivaled!Read More
Dee and I went to do some shooting down at Bombo rocks just around the corner from Kiama.
It was a pretty rough swell but made for some spectacular photos!
Although it was a fair walk down around to these locations there was such a diversity! This could be a desert scene, certainly doesn’t look like it is bordered just to the left by the ocean!
This is just begging for a TTD session!…
More of a happy snap, but it does look like they are stranded 🙂
Dee was a little too enthusiastic in getting close to the rocks for ‘the shot’ and I managed to turn around just in time to catch a wave shower him! He tried rather poorly to shelter his camera by his body!
and I was at a safe distance shooting this…
Im not sure Dee learned his lesson… this was a close call again!
Definitely revisiting Bombo for a bridal session!Read More
Im not very good at getting up early to photograph sunrises so I colluded with my friend Dee Kramer (local landscape photographer) to motivate me. The few times I have been up early to photograph sunrises:
1. There has been no sun at all
2. There has been no clouds to make the sunrise pretty!
This was a case of 1.
It was raining, miserable and yet we still stayed for 30 mins (I guess we were optimistic that something better would eventuate!)
so tell me… where is the sun? I couldn’t even tell where it was supposed to be!
We both had expensive weather-proof solutions… umbrellas! Dee doing what he does best…
