Snapper Rocks

I have caught some of the best waves I’ve ever surfed at this break but whenever the surf is good I’m generally left with a choice of getting some pics or getting some waves.  The surf had been really good and this day was no different breaking from behind the rocks and running all the way through to Greenmount.  These are a couple shots I snapped off when Beau and I were down that way last week.

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.

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

Tallebudgera Creek Sunset

As I left home to meet up with Gold Coast/Perth photographer Beau Mitchell it began to pour with rain, not the best conditions to be shooting a sunset.  It was still quite overcast and rainy when i got to Tallebudgera, i was thinking that all i was going to get was a wet camera instead of a new image but in the past every time i go home in these conditions the sky goes crazy with the most amazing light.  It wasn’t one of those days with the perfect light you dream of and it was still spitting on and off but eventually the sky began to glow with some nice colour and this is what i came up with… hope you like it.

Exposure – 4 Secs @ F16

Lamington National Park

For most of my shooting life I have always used film and loved it.  I have no issues with digital I just love that feeling you get when you get when you are looking at a perfectly exposed transparency on the light box.  I have resisted using digital for so long but a few moths ago i lashed out and bought the Canon 5D Mark 2 and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner the results are amazing, the files are big, crisp and full of colour what more could I ask for.

Last time I walked to Elabana falls I got nailed by leaches so after seeing a guy in the carpark with a whole lot of leach marks on his legs I wasn’t that enthused about the next 7km walk.  This time I escaped with no leeches and this 3 image stitch of Elabana falls.

The First blog

Hi and welcome to my blog

World Heritage listed rainforest and some of the countries best beaches all within an hours drive not too bad hey.  The sunny Gold Coast is where I call home and is an amazing place for any landscape photographer to live.  Right now its not all that sunny and the East Coast is coping a battering from ex tropical cyclone Olga.  With the weather being so bad what better time to work on some photos…

This photo was taken just after sunrise last week down at Fingal headland.
