New book “WEST”

Finally, after 6 years, I have am working on a new book. It’s called ‘West’ and features my best work from around Western Australia.
I am crowd funding the book and it’s now available for pre-sale.
It has been a long time coming but finally I have dedicated some time to getting the new work into a beautiful coffee table book. There are some extra special deal on the book so now is the time to order. Have a look at the “Learn More” below and choose a pledge that suits you. So many great ways to save. Once the pledging period is over, the book will be printed and the price of the book will go up to the RRP.

WEST – Photographs of Western Australia

Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019

Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019

Down South has been named Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific 2019 ! How awesome is that?!  Of course, I’ve always known that. It’s why I live in Dunsborough. If you haven’t visited yet, then you definitely should. Maybe wait until summer though. It’s a bit wet and cold at the moment.
This is what Lonely Planets had to say – “Take one look at Meelup Beach and you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life: the West Australian bush parts to reveal ocean the hue of a Bombay Sapphire bottle, which is typical of the coastline stretching from Margaret River to the state’s south. Beyond the sand, some of the country’s slickest wineries, breweries and restaurants lie between tracts of tall-tree forest and kangaroo-dotted farmland.”

How different do we react to our surroundings?

How different do we react to our surroundings?

How different do we react to our surroundings. These two images were taken on the same day. We were in Perth for a wedding so I took the camera up to take some photos on Sunday morning. The black and white image is one of those I took. Hand held through the car window and rain trying to convey the scene that was in front of me and the mood I was feeling. Later that day when we got home I decided to go and finish the day on a positive note. I went to my favourite beach at Cape Naturaliste and took the image on the right. Same day, same camera, same photographer. The only thing that changed was my attitude. I love that photography can take you away and make you focus on something that is good and positive.

2019 is here!

2 Jan 2019 at 8:41am

2019 is here!

What better way to welcome in the new year with a new image.  Well technically it isn’t a new image but it is the first time I have posted it.  It was shot a couple of months ago from memory.

2018 was the year of the aerial once again.  In fact I think aerial photography has exploded into the mainstream over the past decade.  From the early days of Richard Waldendorp shooting from a plane to todays drones redefining what is possible. It has been an exciting ride, well it used to be up in a light aircraft or helicopter.  I prefer a drone these days for lots of reasons, most being the ability to hover and compose more effectively.  The ability to shoot straight down without and angle means the image can be rotated in any direction in post and still look like it was shot properly.

I love aerials but they aren’t my passion.  I prefer the banal urban landscape and this is what I have been exploring a lot in the past 9 years.

So what is new in 2019 for me?  Possibly a new camera system, obviously new images,  we have a new staff member and new ways of printing and displaying photographs.  But I want to continue to talk more about deeper issues.  Issues relating to the environment and how we can all do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint.  I also want to talk more about the need for action to protect our only lifeboat, one that is increasingly under threat.  Don’t worry,  I won’t be getting all preachy on you but hopefully through our love for photography and the natural world inspiration will come and you can too influence your family and friends.  No finger pointing here just the facts and good, open and honest discussions.

It is going to be a year of excitement and hopefully positive change.  Thanks to all of you for interacting with my posts on Facebook and Insta, for all the likes, the chats in the gallery and the goodwill.  We really all have more in common than differences.  Clean air, water, food on the table, a roof over our head, freedom of thought, democracy and a government that looks after the people.  We all want that.  Basic human rights.

See you on the beaches, in the gallery or on the side of a mountain looking for magic light!
