This is a big moment for me and my business and firstly I would like to thank everyone who helped make this possible and yeah I know this sounds like a speech from the Oscars but I have had a lot of support and help in getting the site to where it is so people need to be thanked.  Mia thanks for putting up with a stressed out boyfriend and for all your help uploading images while I was out in the field.  Beau you did an amazing job on the site cheers mate and anyone who needs a new website for their business should contact Beau Mitchell for a quote, you wont be disappointed trust me.  Last but not least I would like to thank all of my customers, fans and of course my family and friends who have supported me over the past 7 years.

Now because the site is all new we are celebrating the launch by giving 30% off all orders placed before the end of April.  Once the item is added to the cart the price will automatically be corrected with the discounted price.

Also this is my last blog on this site so anyone who is subscribed to it or has my link on their blogroll please check out the new blog on my website and subscribe to it there or update the details if need be…

Cheers and thanks for stopping by

Stormy Sunset

With the state awards fast approaching I decided that it was time to go shooting for the day.  Beau Mitchell and I headed south, originally wanting to photograph the border ranges the light wasn’t right so we decided to hit the beaches for something different.  Our trip went from the Gold Coast down through the Tweed Coast to Byron Bay and finally back to the Gold Coast where this sunset shot was taken.

5D Mark 2     –     24-70mm2.8L     –     ND 3 stop      –      3 second exposure

Also my new website is in the final stages of its design and will be released on Monday 29th March.

Port Macquarie – APPA

I have been doing this photography gig since I left school in 2002, I started out at the markets selling some of my photos as mounted prints which were ready to frame.  Looking back at them now I cringe, crooked horizons and all, even a Nikon thrown in there yep I once used a Nikon sad I know.  I finally upgraded to a Canon EOS 3 and have been using Canon bodies and lens’ alongside my Fuji 617 ever since gotta love that velvia.

This is one of my images I will be entering into the 2010 Queensland Professional Photography Awards QPPA and depending on how it goes it might make an appearance in Melbourne for the Australian Professional Photography Awards APPA.  Over the years I have won a few awards both state and national so I am hoping to add to the collection.

This shot is a 3 image horizontal stitch of Tacking Point lighthouse in Port Macquarie
