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...

Indian Ocean Sunset
26 February, 2013

Hey All, I headed out this afternoon to try to find a beach I hadn't yet been to.. that part of the mission was a success. I found a small alcove that I'd not yet photographed, so I spent an hour just soaking in the last of the suns rays and enjoying having a beach completely to myself! It always amazes me that in a city the size of Perth that you can still have a beach completely to yourself!   Other than some minor dust...

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 havingĀ benefitedĀ 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...

Hey All, Just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year, I hope everyone had a great holiday break. I'm working on the new design for this site still, it should be online with in the next 2-3 weeks, along with a video I'm working on. For now, here's a few images from a series I'm working on. They are all single editions, so only 1 print will ever be made of each one!       If you are interested in any...

360 Degree Geminids Meteor Shower
14 December, 2012

Headed out for a quick drive last night to see if I could see any of the Geminids Meteor Shower that occurs this time every year.. last years was particularly spectacular. I think I may have been a little late to see the peak of it, but I'm pretty happy with the photos I managed to capture: I also grabbed a 360 degree image while I had my other camera going! Check it out (click & drag to view): Or if you'd like to see a full...

360 Degrees of lightning
12 December, 2012

Last night we had one of the most incredible lightning storms pass over the south coast of Western Australia, I headed down to Mandurah with another photographer, hoping to get something a little different. I've been wanting to try this shot out for quite awhile now.. I'm not overly happy with the stitching of this image, but the concept works.. if you are prepared to get yourself right under a storm and be surrounded with lighting! Check...
