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…

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.

A windy sunrise at Burleigh Heads

I had set my alarm for 4:50am in hope of capturing decent sunrise at Burleigh Heads.  When my alarm went off and I heard that it was pouring with rain and blowing a gale I turned it off and tried getting back to sleep… no victory today, wide awake and average weather at best damn it.  One of the benefits of living two streets from the beach is that I can see the ocean and get a pretty good idea if it is worth the effort of leaving the house.  I couldn’t see any inviting sky but I decided to go anyway as I had been wanting to work on this stitching business.

This is one of my first stitches with moving water and I think it is pretty good and the sky was also worth the effort in the end 🙂

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.
