Australian Outback Photography

I’ve just got back from 6 weeks away in the expansive Aussie Outback. What a place!

I love the vastness, the simplicty of subject, the harshness of the weather upon the landscape, and the unique character of the towns and people that live out there. Naturally it was a little warmer than down here in Victoria too!

This shot was taken on the drive from Winton to Hughendon in Queensland. It’s very much a “less is more” type image that I love capturing. Stay tuned for more updates as I get the chance.

Business Photography

{Business Photography} Yes I also do commercial photo shoots. Not enough people know. Why? Because I’m bad at publicising myself haha. But I’m good at making your business look great!!! If you need new photos for your business then get in touch. After all a good photo tells a thousand words!

Exhibition Time!

{Exhibition Time} I’m looking forward to being Guest Artist at the Pomonal Art Show this long weekend. Come to the Grampians and check out some of my new work pictured here, as well as plenty of other brilliant work from fellow local artists. Percentage of all sales support the local community and it’s the very last show in the old town hall before its demolished. Don’t miss it! Share, share, share!! For details visit

Winter Landscape Photography

{Winter Landscape Photography} Those that know me well will know I love the seasons, all of them, including Winter. The Grampians come alive with dancing clouds, fresh forest air, and the call of the Currawongs. The roads are quiet, the walking tracks empty, the coffee shops warm. What better time to come and visit Halls Gap!

Victorian Professional Photography Awards 2015

{Awards} The last two days saw the Victorian Professional Photography Awards judged. Today was the landscape category to which I enter my personal work. I’m pretty stoked to have come away with a Gold Award, a Silver Distinction and two solid Silvers from my four entries. Will that be enough for Victorian Landscape Photographer of the Year? That’s the big question, but I’ll take a guess that I’m short of the mark, we’ll wait and see. Good luck to all the eventual category winners this year!

Epic Grampians!

{Landscape Shoot} Wow I’m bad at updating things here regularly. Last weekend with a gap between wedding shoots I finally made some time to trek out and find the mystical “Hole in the Wall” in the Grampians NP. A total return trip of seven hours of off-track walking, with my bro for company, got us to the amazing but little known rock feature. The size of the void and vivid colours of the roof was impressive to say the least. Was it worth it? You tell me!

Riverbank Twilight

Sitting on the riverbanks of the mighty Murray before sunrise has to be one of my favourite places to be. The light builds ever so slowly through the dark, while the first birds awaken and call over the gentle sounds of slow moving water.
It’s peaceful, comfortably cool, with clean air, and it’s oh so relaxing for the weary traveller before another day begins.

Wedding Dance – Party Time!

What better way to celebrate a warm summer days wedding than to dance the night away in style. The guests at Tim and Lex’s wedding late last year certainly knew how to Paaarr-Taaay!!!

Tech – For those interested all photos are essentially straight out of camera using flash fill, 1.5sec @f6.7 with a camera twist-of-the-wrist. The fairy lights did the rest. Contrast bumped in post. Great Fun!  😉
