A Little Australiana.........................................

July 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I love road trips, I love Australiana and I love processing photos in different ways in order to potentially obtain a number of appealing pieces out of just one shot. The shot above was taken a year or so ago between Ballina and Grafton. Pulled over the moment I saw this and just had to take it. To me, in colour I am not overly keen on it, but made...

Sometimes, you just have to have fun........................

May 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
In 2014 I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot the NRL Grand Final between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Canterbury Bulldogs. On the way back home that night, on a boat, I decided to be a little silly with my camera. After all, the serious shooting was over. I decided to shoot night shots with a hand held camera, knowing that was ridiculous...

Roadtrip Part 1: Shooting a Cliche

May 24, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
One of the problems with shooting anything that has been previously photographed by every single tourist that has a camera, is how the hell to shoot such a cliche and try to make it a little different? It's hard. Things like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and the Byron Bay Lighthouse have been shot to death, almost literally....

Review on 10mm to 20mm Sigma Wide Angle and Hoya ND 10stop Filter Part 2

June 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Hi again. So, I have now had a little more time and far better conditions to really try out the ND 10stop Filter. All I can say is, I'm in love. All I said about the lens in the previous review still stands, I just love the solid build on it particularly, and angle of view just blows me away no matter how many times I look through my view finder...

Review of Sigma Lens 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM and Hoya 10Stop ND Filter

June 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Okay, so this quick review will be a little bit of a 'bits and bobs" style review as I actually tested the Sigma Lens on a road trip last weekend, and the filter today very quickly on the Sigma Lens. So, the lens? Great little lens. It's a wide angle zoom that goes from 10mm to 20mm with a maximum aperture of 3.5, not super fast but fast enough to...

Canon 50mm f1.8 Prime Lens Review

May 23, 2015  •  1 Comment
Right up front let me give you a warning. If you pick this lens up in your hand it will feel super light, I believe about 130gms, it will feel very "plasticy" and it will feel cheap. Don't be fooled, this is a classic case of when you should not judge a book by it's cover. I came across this lens from a photographer friend who loaned it to me to t...

Luvvin' The Road Trip

January 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I just got back from a 4 day road trip to the far north coast of NSW. Not really much to say about it apart from saying there is no greater opportunity to take some great photographs then when you're on a road trip. Loved every minute of it, including sneaking my dog into our hotel room, seeing my sister for the first time in more than two decades...

The Great Photographic Challenge

November 11, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
Anyone who knows me or has ever read anything I have ever written even remotely related to photography will be very aware that very little annoys me more than those highly ignorant people who say all you need to be a good photographer is an expensive camera. Yep, just point that 5D Mk lll at the subject and voila!, you are now a photographic genius...

Canon 7D Review and Newtown Adventures

December 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Greetings all. Well it has been a while since I have blogged, did I mention I hate that word, blogged? Sounds like an accident. Moving on, I recently purchased a Canon 7D and have been bursting at my little britches to go for a wander around Newtown for two, count them, two, reasons. One reason is obviously to finally put the 7D through a few...

Sydney Brewhouse Campaign: UPDATE

September 27, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
So, the final stage has pretty much arrived on this project. The photos below are the final shots selected for the campaign. Thanks to Jane Evans from Giant Leap for doing some great layouts and allowing me to get as silly as I want with the camera! This job was a lot of fun.

Sydney Brewhouse Campaign

September 25, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Hi all, It's been a while largely because I have been busy. I have been shooting a campaign for Sydney Brewhouse which has involved shooting different suburbs of Sydney for specific drinks. It's been a heap of fun and it's not quite over yet. Here are some of the shots I have taken in the process, not all of these will be used, I have a LO...

Out and About

July 11, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Hello peoples. Well, I suppose the best thing about having a website, blog or Facebook page devoted to your totally self indulgent artsy fartsy side is that you get to display all your self indulgent artsy fartsy photos. I decided to throw a few photos up that I have just been taking on the way to different shoots, or just being out with my c...

Sydney Sunday Street Music

May 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
On Sunday 27th May 2012 I wandered into the city with my camera to photograph some Sydney Sunday Street Music, in other words some of our leading buskers doing what they do best. Busking has come a long way since the days of one guy with an out of tune guitar singing Bob Dylan, badly. Well, that was pretty much what I was brought up with. Tod...

Living Critters...........and Flutterbys.

May 14, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
On the same day I popped into Madame Tussauds and went crazy photographing large chunks of wax that looked strangely like some famous people, I also popped into Sydney Wildlife as I am a massive animal lover. Now, this was an unplanned visit so I was not really prepared, lens wise, to do any shooting. What I wanted to do was photograph some butt...
