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.

Christmas Island Video
10 April, 2017

I know I'm a bit behind in the blog posts, we have a new arrival in our family, Elena Rose was born only a few weeks ago and she is definitely making her presence felt in the house. I'm now catching up on my content posting and will continue the series of Better Landscape Photography shortly. In the mean time, I've finally finished the video from my Christmas Island trip in May 2016. It was an awesome trip that you can read about here: Christmas...

Christmas Island Dreaming
8 January, 2017

In May 2016 I was commissioned to travel to Christmas Island to host a social media photography meet up as well as to capture the island photographically. I travelled there with 2 travel journalists who were writing stories about the trip and Linda from the Tourism Association. I was also commissioned to capture some 360 degree video for Facebook, YouTube and VR applications. First impressions on coming into land on Christmas Island was one of...

South West Secrets
12 September, 2016

Western Australia is an amazingly diverse state, with over 12,500 kilometres of coastline and 2.6 million square kilometres of land, there is always something to be explored and discovered. Most people when they hear Western Australia, they think of iron ore, mining, deserts and a dry, dusty place. Over the last few years I've been exploring the South West corner of the state, primarily around Busselton, Margaret River, Nannup and out to Albany. The...

Death of an FStop Bag
1 February, 2016

My F-Stop Tilopa camera bag has died, so I've had to start looking for a new camera bag. Every photographer I know has multiple camera bags, it seems that for many of us it is an unending quest to find the "perfect" camera bag. Personally, I went through 5 different camera bags ranging from backpacks to slings and a few other variations, all of them we good at doing 1 or 2 things, none of them covered all of what I wanted though. I primarily...

Qantas - Feels Like Home Campaign
18 January, 2016

Late last year I was commissioned to take part in an Instagram & social media campaign with Qantas to celebrate their 95th birthday. The theme of the campaign was "Feels like home", we travelled around Australia finding out what home meant to Australians from all walks of life. It was a pretty amazing project to be part of, the flight schedule was definitely one of the more hectic ones that I've been on, with events every second day and flights...

Journey through Jordan
6 August, 2015

In late 2013  I received an email from The Giving Lens about an upcoming photography workshop trip they were holding in Jordan, for some reason I knew that I needed to go on this trip, so I put in my application and hoped for the best. My application was accepted and over the next few months I started putting together a few side trips on the way to and from Jordan. On my way to Jordan I had a 12 hour stop over in Dubai and then had a few days...

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...

Hey All, It's been an incredibly busy year so far, I can't believe we're in Autumn here in Australia already! I'm looking forward to the weather and conditions that Autumn and Winter bring though, I've scouted a few new locations that I think will be perfect to photograph in winter.   I've got a few projects on the go here in the South West right now, a couple of new ones in Perth and it looks like I might be making a very quick...
