Family Photography Sessions

Wow it’s been a busy end to the year and it’s about time I update things here.

When was the last time you had family photos done? Often a family photograph session can be a little contrived, stiff and setup, yet I’m sure most of you would prefer relaxed photographs of your family simply being happy, natural, and enjoying yourselves. This is my style and I’ve got some sample photographs from a recent family shoot right here. Thanks Erin and Joel we had a blast.

Stormy Grampians Weather

Well a day without taking photos is a day gone missing in my books.

The weather looks like its taking a turn for the worst for most. But for a landscape photographer bad weather usually means powerful, dramatic image results. I love it!

These images are all from the Halls Gap, Lake Fyans area of the Grampian region,  in Western Victoria.

Oodnadatta Track: Living History

Recently I revisted one of my favourite outback tracks, the Oodnadatta Track. I find it a fasinating location on so many levels. From a photography perspective there is something new and interesting around every corner. The history of the track and the old ghan railway that follows it is well documented on interpretive signs along the way. If you only do one ‘outback track’ then make this it! Here are a small selection of Oodnadatta Track photographs from my visits highlighting the diverse nature of this wonderful place.

Grampians and Halls Gap Floods

January 2011 brought unprecedented rainfalls across many parts of Victoria. Halls Gap received around  280mm in 48 hours! The changes to the Grampians National Park were quick, dramatic and not to mention expensive. 

Many roads and attractions in the Grampians National Park  have since reopened with only a handful still under repair. The photographs taken below are a mixed bag taken on both my Pentax K-5 and my little waterproof Lumix (necessary with the rain so heavy).

Silverband Falls in the Grampians National Park is once again open. The whole Grampians National Park, Halls Gap and the surrounding region were dramatically effected by the floods in January 2011. Check out my photos of the before and after of Silverband Falls. Better still come and check it out for yourself this Easter.

Wedding Photographer

Finding and choosing a Wedding Photographer that is right for your Wedding Day is an important decision. I’m a creative Wedding Photographer that photographs in a relaxed and fresh documentary style. I photograph the day as it happens and believe that the photographer shouldn’t dictate any of the days proceedings. My unobtrusive shooting style will complement rather than influence your wedding day. For further qeustions and package prices visit my website at or contact me.

Events Photographer

An events photographer has to be versatile, quick, and creative. Events I have photographed include music festivals and concerts, motorsport and car shows, local events and carnivals, and sporting events just to name a few. Contact me for an estimate for your events coverage or to ask any questions.
