Behind the scenes with an aerial photographer
15 May, 2018

I've been working on quite a few aerial photography projects over the last few years, I've been filming footage while working on these projects too. Early last month I posted a video with footage from my flights around Australia to my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJZg520crK1fYMD9iqrgqPg Please head over there and subscribe, I've been releasing new videos every week for the last few weeks and plan to continue it for the...

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...

The blog is going to be all about creativity, with posts by myself, guest bloggers and regular posts about things that inspire...

New Image Series: Untouched
3 March, 2013

Recently I challenged myself to produce a series of images that would look processed and textured but completely in the camera, so no photoshop at all. The images were taken with several experimental camera techniques in Camera RAW (a digital negative) and then other than very minor contrast adjustments, they are exactly how they appeared in the camera. The reason for this was just a personal challenge to push me further in my photography, not...

When a creative loses their way
21 February, 2013

Hey All, This is going to be a pretty raw and personal post, something that I've been going through the last couple of months and looking around, I'm definitely not alone in my journey. I was debating about whether to post this or not, but having benefited from others sharing their experiences, I think it is good that I share mine, who knows who it might inspire and help. It will be far from the best post I've ever written and there are probably...
