Adam + Eve: Baby on board 2

Nineteen months ago, I had the privilege of shooting Adam and Eve as they were expecting their first child, Olivier. Well, in the last couple of weeks, not only have we already had another outdoor maternity shoot, but Eve thought it would be great to prepare another ‘before-and-after’ shot too. I won’t be sharing the images from…

Melbourne: Central Place, Graffiti Laneway and a street portrait

Melbourne CBD Melbourne is an awesome city. Easy to walk around, with great food, coffee, bars and vibes. I was down there again recently for a work conference and as much as I had hoped to have some time to wander, there was precious little opportunity. Pretty much all of the shots in this post…

Vivid Light Festival: Sydney Opera House

Well, it’s that time of year again and Sydney is once again playing host the Vivid Light Festival. The photo’s I’ll share tonight will only focus on the Opera House as I didn’t head down there until 10.20pm (and the lights go off at 11pm!). Hopefully, I will make it out a few more times over the…

Obelisk Beach sunrise, Sydney, Australia

The other week, I awoke on the lounge with a crook in my neck and the usual bad back from falling asleep in some ridiculous position. It’s usually at times like this when I take this exact opportunity to go out and take some sunrise photo’s. I confess to thinking I would just head back down to Bronte…

Bare Island, Sydney, Australia

Bare Island, La Perouse. Ever since I saw the movie Mission Impossible II (that’s the particularly crap one, IMHO), I had made a mental note of visiting Bare Island. It’s about a 40 minute, traffic riddled, cross-town drive from my place but that’s no excuse for taking so long (actually, years) to finally venture out there….

Sydney Mardi Gras Parade 2016

  Mardi Gras Parade. It was a perfect last night for Sydney’s Mardi Gras parade – warm weather combined with flash, trash, glamour, politics, diversity, acceptance and love. It was a far cry from the original march in 1978 when a small group of gays, lesbians and their supporters first walked in solidarity down Oxford street while…

Sydney New Years Eve Fireworks 2015-2016

Happy New Year from Sydney, Australia! Here’s a few snaps I took tonight as Sydney celebrated the start of 2016. I had intended to take photo’s from the eastern side of the Harbour Bridge but I got held up in traffic and I was 30 seconds too late before the road closed! Arrrggghhhh!  This necessitated a hasty…

Cape Bridgewater, Victoria, Australia

A couple of weeks ago, I was down in country Victoria again for the annual Port Fairy Folk Festival. I’ve been going now for about 15 years and have met and made many friends over this time. Not so long ago, I used to lug my guitar down as a group of us used to play…

Bronte just after sunrise: Last day of summer, Sydney

Early Morning Procrastination I fell asleep on the lounge yesterday and woke at 5.55am. The dilemma I face whenever this happens is whether or not to crawl up to be bed for a couple of extra hours snooze time or to grab the camera and go take some photo’s. You can see by this post that…

Sunrise over Jimmy’s Beach, Hawks Nest

  Well, its been business as usual back at work these last couple of weeks. The new year’s break is fading day by day and here we are already in February! All I can say is, Where did January go?!?! Caramba! Anyway, the small set of photo’s in today’s post come from our recent trip up…

Sunrise to sunset: 2015 New years day, Sydney, Australia

Above: High tide at Bronte just before the first sunrise of the new year. Sunrise at Bronte If you saw my previous post about Sydney’s New Years Eve fireworks, you’d know I was hoping for a little more than an hour’s sleep before having to get up for sunrise photo’s. In the end, all I could…

Sydney Harbour New Year’s Fireworks

Happy New Year from Australia everyone!!! It’s been 4 hours now since Sydney heralded in 2015 with our customary fireworks show. Here’s some photo’s from tonights spectacular.   Wherever you are, I wish you all the best for the coming year. May you all dream big and fulfil you your aspirations. PS. Wish my luck…

Merry Christmas Eve everyone

  Every year I promise to be more organised for Christmas, and, every year things seem to get get busier and busier. December has passed in a blink of an eye and in a few short hours Santa will be arriving on our doorstep. Wow! I find the pace of things a wee bit frustrating,…

Maternity and newborn shoot: Adam, Eve + Olivier

Adam + Eve A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of doing a maternity shoot with the gorgeous Adam and Eve. We’d tried a couple of times to get together in the preceding weeks but every date we arranged the weather conspired against us. On both of those occasions, Sydney turned on days which were near…

Sunrise over Mackenzies beach (and Bronte), Sydney, Australia

Sydney has had a wild start to summer this year. Every day has been above 30C (86F) with almost 100% humidity and every afternoon we’ve been struck by wild storms. They said on the News tonight that we’ve had more than 20,000 lightning strikes in the last 7 days! Despite the strange weather, I was…

Event: Sculpture by the Sea 2014

This years Sculpture by the Sea exhibition wrapped up last Sunday and, thankfully, I managed to make it down there with a day to spare. Traversing Sydney’s coastline from Tamarama to Bondi beach, the event has grown in popularity with each passing year. In fact, its gotten so popular that I found it quite difficult to find a…

Kirribilli sunrise, Sydney

The other morning I was up before dawn again and thought I might try and get lucky with some sunrise photo’s. For a change of scenery, rather than head down to the beach, I figured I’d see what I might get at the exclusive harbourside suburb of Kirribilli. For those that don’t know, Kirribilli House is located here…

Sunrise over Bronte beach, Sydney, Australia

Sunrise over Bronte Beach Last weekend I decided to set an early alarm and visit Bronte beach again. It’s been quite a few months since my last visit and with the weather warming up down here in the southern hemisphere I didn’t have the excuse of a cold winter morning to dissuade me. It was a…

Cycling side trip to the town of Damme, Belgium

Bruges is a small and compact town, easily traversed by foot. Since I had 4 day’s here prior to my conference, I decided to spend my third morning cycling out to the village of Damme. Hiring a bike for half a day, I set off to the north east and peddled the 6 kilometres to…
