Adventures in Egypt
20 February, 2015

Early in 2014 I made a trip with The Giving Lens to Jordan, on the way over I was invited to join 2 other photographers in Egypt for a few days. I decided to head there despite the travel warning by the Australian Government and the constant bad news reported by the Australian media. Flying in to Cairo was a fairly straight forward experience, I was able to get my visa on arrival and it was relatively cheap. The hotel we stayed at (right...

Review: Induro CT213 Tripod
18 May, 2014

About a year ago I suddenly became in the market for a new tripod when the one I was using was blown off a cliff during a sunrise shoot in Geraldton, Western Australia. I managed to retrieve the tripod but the centre shaft had snapped and it was completely useless. I have been shopping around, looking at prices and working out what tripod would fit the majority of my needs. Most of the photographers I know own more than one tripod, they...

Photography problems
1 April, 2014

Hey All, It's with a very heavy heart that I write this post, it's been awhile coming, but I've decided that it is time for me to put down my camera, at least in a professional capacity. It's been a hard slog since starting full-time in 2008, I've changed directions a few times, had some pretty awesome highs like getting magazine covers, interviews, TV coverage, travelling to Cambodia on a volunteer trip and seeing a heap of Australia... I've...

Google Business Photos
28 November, 2013

Hey All,   I've been pretty busy over the last few weeks, capturing some virtual tours of our local businesses.  For those who might have missed it, last year I went through Google's certification program and became a Google Trusted Photographer. This allows me to photograph Google Street View style virtual tours inside businesses and put them on Google Maps, which is great for the business as Google Maps is, by far, the most used app...
