10 Dec 2009 at 1:24am

Hi all,
Trying to sell my canon 400mm f5.6 lens (just like Christians). Bought it 6 months ago for $2000 and only used it twice. I would like $1200 for it.
Contact Jack on 0401375863

Poor Matt Lauder will be bummed out, he just got one, could have saved some coin on this puppy! This is one of my favorite lenses and if you don’t jump all over this you are crazy! The gold I got at this years APPAs was shot with my 400 f/5.6. I guess you could call it an award wining lens.

More bargains, Peter Ellery has this for sale

I’m selling my hardly used Canon 50D with a Sigma 10-20 lens. Body and lens $1800. You can call me on 0412 184 397 or email peter@elevation.net.au. Cheers Peter

Brights Autumn Trees

7 Dec 2009 at 8:56am

Going back a few years I went to Bright one Australian destination every landscape photographer should go to. Bright is in Victoria in the Alpine region and every year in April May it turns Yellow. Neal from Spool photography got me thinking about all that amazing colour you get every autumn. These type of images are just crying out Jigsaw puzzle!! Anybody want one??? I’ll make this a million pieces just to make it more challenging for the kids. Will keep them quiet I think!

That means if you haven’t started dialing the number you are probably going to miss out. It is going to be brilliant with all 4 speakers confirmed and the champagne is now officially on ice for the celebrations. If you want to know what it will be about have a look at this promotional video of how boat trips of this nature should go!! Now for all you kiddies out there be warned there is some bad language in the said video! You have been warned!!! I’m on a Boat

Welcome to the new CF Blog

15 Sep 2009 at 7:19am

Thanks to everyone for such awesome comments, I was quite humbled by the support everyone has given me and it almost bought a tear to my eye. I was ready to chuck it all in last night but realise that would be like saying goodbye to my friends. Even though a lot of you I haven’t met we all share a common interest in photography so we will always have something good to talk about.

The blog is pretty hard to keep up with and this is part of my frustration but it goes with the territory. I enjoy looking at everyone else’s blogs when I get time and as you know these things take time so please don’t think I don’t see what your all doing. Posting comments is getting harder to do so remember I’m still out there checking for new awesome images to inspire me too.

I’m proud of this community we have and welcome anyone else who wants to be involved. I am going forward now with a positive outlook and to offer more great images and posts to keep us all enthused about photography.

Now once I get things under control here I have a photo comp to run. I have booked the cabin on True North for the Sydney trip as first prize next year but want to get it up and going asap. So now is the time to get out and shoot, your hard work could get you on the trip of a lifetime. I’m thinking about booking on this trip myself. Now if there are any companies that want to throw up some minor prizes for free publicity let me know.

thanks again everyone, oh and Canon and I are friends again!!

New Canon 17mm TS

14 Sep 2009 at 3:35am


Seems my Nikon post has ruffled a few feathers at Canon. To make it up to them I want to talk about the new 17mm TS that I purchased from Team Digital in Perth. I hope Nikon have had a look at this lens as it is amazing. I have been blown away by its sharpness and it was evident when in live view at 10x magnification. I have the 50mm f/1.2 and the 85mm f1.2 and they are awesome lenses but this is better again. It is a weird looking bit of kit with a bulbous front element and bloody scary to use as that bit of glass can scrape on anything so easily. Don’t know if there is a lens hood for it but I think it needs one. Maybe someone from Canon could enlighten us. The images I have are so sharp and will post some as I get a chance, I am in crisis mode or is that suck up mode. Still a little bit of controversy earned me 36,000 hits on the blog in under two weeks and a few people to take notice. Sorry Canon you still make bloody good gear, if you have any news you want to spread let me know!!
Also a big thanks to Ben at team digital for letting us use two TS lenses to help make our minds up to get one. Cheers buddy, and thanks for the great service!! 😉

A Bridge Too Far

19 Aug 2009 at 5:59am

melb bridge

I loved this bridge, it is so bold and typical of the cool things they do in Melbourne. Who is running our city, and why is it so plain??? The morning was cold and foggy and I had two dodgy characters checking me out as I took this pic. Made me realize I was in a big city, in a dodgy area and that I was probably stupid for wandering around. This is gang heartland after all, underbelly style!! Luckily it was too cold to hang around for too long so I jumped back in my awesome Hyundi Getz hire car and zoomed off. I’m into white skys at the moment. Something about the simplicity and cleanness, a bit like Tommy P’s mind!!!

What to do when the Sunset is no good AGAIN !!!

12 Jun 2009 at 12:49am

power of nature Don’t worry about a blown out sky. Some times it is nice to have a white sky. In this photo it works as it adds to the abstract nature of the landscape. I really like the little tree growing out of the rock and the rock that has broken off and wedged itself in the gap. What do you think?

Interview with Nick Rains

2 Jun 2009 at 11:30pm

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/4954713] Nick was kind enough to join me and Mark Stothard on a shoot in Lamington National Park. We saw heaps of waterfalls but the best part of the park was closed due to the huge amount of rain they had. Nick has taken over as editor of Better Digital magazine. He is a great bloke and a wealth of knowledge. Mark and I got a tutorial on J.Holmes colour spaces on the walk back. We hiked for 12 kms Mark did it in bare feet. The tracks were pretty muddy so he had his foot spa for the day. Also managed to find 3 leeches too. Funny, Mark is probably one of the most fearless guys I have met but the very mention of leeches reduced him to a quivering mess!! hehe He promised to take me diving with sharks as a payback! Not this little black duck!!!
