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…

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…

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…

An evening in Bruges and a whirlwind 6 weeks!

Wow, the past 6 weeks have been an incredible ride! Here’s some brief highlights (that also account for the recent poverty of posts); About 2 months ago I was contacted by Apple asking if they could use an image I took of climbers on the face of El Capitan in Yosemite, USA. 6 weeks ago, that image…

Fitzroy Falls and the Milky Way (Astro-photography)

I’m back! Well, all I can say is that its been a while. I could try to contrive a bit of a sob story but to be honest, my time has just been divided amongst too many things. Work, family, friends, photo business… it can be a delicate balancing act sometimes, can’t it? If you’ve…

Wandering around the Marais district, Paris

Here’s a few pictures I took as I wandered around the Marais district in Paris recently. From memory, it was a Sunday and I started my walking tour at the Maison Europenne de La Photographie gallery (which was fantastic by the way). After a couple of hours there, I decided to wander further into this…

Good Morning 2014: Balmoral beach, Sydney

It had been my intention to go back down to Bronte beach for the first set of sunrise photo’s for 2014 but my plans changed slightly. After checking my weather app, I noted that we were expecting a high tide which is my least favourite time to shoot Bronte. I’ve always preferred low tide there…

People watching around London, UK

Well its been a busy few weeks in the run up to the Christmas. Typically, just when you’d hope things would start to wind up at work, the exact opposite happens! On top of this, my evenings have been spent chasing my tail: trying to work on my new website; research various ideas; edit a…

Random Black and White shots around Cambridge, UK

These are a few randoms from my recent visit to Cambridge. I’ve tried my hand at a little black and white post-processing which I still find quite challenging. My favourite shot is the one above of the couple embracing down the lane way. Now, back to tinkering with my new self-hosted website which will focus…

Earls Court and Harrods, UK

Another quick post because I’m teaching in the morning and am only looking at 3 hours sleep… again ;-(. When I was in London recently I stayed in the area known as Earls Court. I decided this for a number of reasons, namely; it was reasonably priced (for London); I could get to and from…

Notre Dame, Paris

Two days ago I arrived back to Australia after a 10 trip to the UK and Paris. Granted the first half was devoted to a conference I was presenting at in Cambridge, but the final 5 days saw me take in the sights of Paris. So, whilst battling a little jet-lag, I’ve been going through…

Event: Vivid Light Festival-Darling Harbour

The Vivid Light festival wrapped up earlier this week and on the final night I thought I’d  check out the show down at Darling Harbour. Darling Harbour bounds the western side of Sydney’s CBD and has increasingly become a restaurant and tourist precinct in the last few years. Owing to its sheltered bay, it hosted…

Bronte sunrise: End of daylight savings time

This morning was the last day of daylight savings time here in Sydney, Australia. What better excuse to go back down to my favourite city beach and take some photo’s! You see, from tomorrow, our clocks will get put back an hour which means that I’ll have to get up an hour earlier to witness…

Holiday road: Lake Moraine, Banff National Park, Canada

Where has March gone? Between work and photo assignments, I’ve barely had time to scratch myself. As they say; when it rain’s, it pours! Enough of the whinge. Today’s post sees a return to some of the snaps I took when were on holidays in Canada a few months ago. These photo’s are from Lake…

Sunrise: Balmoral pier, Sydney

Hey guys, this is just a quickie post for a lazy Sunday. I was up early this morning and what better way to usher in the new day than to take some dawn photo’s! Sunrise shots are always nice to take when it’s a balmy 24C (75F) and the morning activity of dog walkers, joggers…

Holiday road: The beauty of Lake Louise, Banff Canada (part II)

Here’s a few more photo’s from the morning we spent at Lake Louise, Banff. I just love this place! So glad the weather and skies were good to us; as my fellow blogging friend Mike Moruzi pointed out in his comment in the previous post; mountain weather can be notoriously unreliable. By the sounds of…

Holiday road: Stunning Lake Louise, Banff Canada

Originally, when we booked our tickets from Australia, we were going to fly from New York to Vancouver, Cananda, where we were going to spend the last leg of our trip spread between the city and Whistler. At the time, I figured Whistler would be just as gorgeous (albeit different) to Banff – “mountains are…

Holiday road: Street scenes, NYC

 I think this will be the last post that features photo’s I took recently in New York. Rather than show you the usual tourist haunts, I thought I’d take this opportunity to highlight some random shots taken around the streets of the Big Apple. You’ll see that I’ve experimented with my post-processing in a few…
