Announcement: We're leaving Perth!
17 May, 2013

Hey All, Bec and I have decided to make a move that we've both been wanting to do for many years now.. we're going to be leaving Perth and moving to the Busselton / Dunsborough region in Australia's South West as soon as we can find a house down there. For those not familiar with the region, it's a beautiful region surrounded with beaches, bushland, wineries and many primary producers, located approx 2-2.5 hours drive south of Perth. I...

West Aussie Night Skies

Hey All, I headed out with fellow photographer and friend True North Mark early this morning to see if we could get some meteor photos, that didn't really happen, but we did get some pretty decent star photos instead! Regards Paul...

Sunday Afternoon Session - North Beach, Western Australia
22 April, 2013

Hey All, I headed down to North Beach at sunset tonight just to see what I could get, after last nights pretty average effort, I wanted to redeem myself or at least get something that I liked! I captured some pretty decent photos, ones that I certainly liked, and then I went about experimenting with some new techniques that I will eventually post about and describe how I do it.   And a few abstracts that I really...

Autumn in Perth & The making of an Untouched image
17 April, 2013

Hey All, Just thought I'd post up my latest image from my "Untouched" series. For those wondering how I created this image, here is a rough outline: - Climbed a tree (destroying a pair of pants in the process) - set up my tripod in the tree.. seriously! - Canon EOS 5Dmk2 + 16-35mm f2.8L lens + Big Stopper Neutral Density Filter - Pointed the camera more or less straight down - 1 minute exposure - for the first 45-50 seconds (ish) I...

Perth Coastal Aerial Photography

Hey All, On Saturday morning before the Perth Photo Walk, Colby Brown and I headed down to Jandakot and met up with the awesome pilot, Brett Campany of Rotorvation Helicopters. Rotorvation have been a commercial photography client of mine for some time now and have helped me out with my aerial photography. We decided to go for a flight in the 4 seater Robinson R44 Helicopter down the coast to Mandurah and then follow the islands back to Rottnest....

Incredible Sunset - Perth, Western Australia
4 April, 2013

Hey All, I had a commercial shoot this afternoon down Kwinana way, on the way home I thought I'd check out a few of the local beaches to see if I could find anything worth doing sunset at.. Pretty happy that I stopped, initially it looked like the clouds were going to close in and we were going to get no colour.. then the entire sky lit up for a good 15-20 minutes! Here are the photos from the evening: I hope you enjoyed...

And the Winners are
2 April, 2013

Hey All, Time to announce the winners of the two signed and matted prints! I ended up with quite a few more subscribers than I thought I would, so I did 2 prizes instead of just the one. Every subscriber was assigned a number and then those numbers were put in Random.org's number generator so that it was truly random, and not just me picking the winners. For the second image, I tracked down every share and mention and assigned extra numbers...
