To be or not to be 31/3

2 Comments


I was sitting at home this afternoon just relaxing and noticed they sky had potential for a good sunset so I got the cameras ready and jumped in the car but there was hardly any fuel left maybe enough to get somewhere maybe not. I was having a bit of a gamble, the sky was either going to do nothing at all or be one of those amazing sunsets you only hope for… that and I had not enough time to get fuel so I left it to fate.

All turned out fine, I didn’t run out of fuel and although the sky wasn’t amazing I did manage to get this vertical shot of the Sand Pumping Jetty at Main Beach. My fuel tank is now full :)

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.

Crescent Head – Mid North Coast NSW 24/3

3 Comments


I met up with an old mate of mine landscape photographer Simon Beedle (watch out for this guy) for a quick road trip to the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. We had originally planned a week at Fraser Island but cancelled due to the cyclones off the Queensland Coast and I have to say that im pretty happy we ended up heading south instead, we got some of the best light I have shot in very a long time.

This is a 10 image vertical stitch of Crescent Head. Also there may be a new toy on the way but more about that one another time…

Cheers for having a look

Snapper Rocks 21/3

4 Comments


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 16/3

9 Comments


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.

Phillip Island – Victoria 07/3

1 Comment


This is an old shot from a trip I took down to Victoria a few years ago.

I arrived a little while before sunset and the sky had a thick haze that had been around all day so i was hoping once the sun began to set i would get some good light to work with. I set up and took a few photos with all different compositions, this image happened by chance whilst changing film the boardwalk caught my eye so i shot a singular frame and turned back to shoot the Nobbies.

Phillip Island has a massive fairy penguin colony so at sunset they close the roads and kick everyone out to stop the little trackers from getting ran over. The ranger was giving me quite the hurry up but the light was just to good to leave so i kept shooting, in the end he stood in front of my lens during the best sunset I have ever seen. All part of the game, I did manage to get this one image as well as a few others which you will be able to see in the coming month with the release of my new website.

A windy sunrise at Burleigh Heads 04/3

9 Comments


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 :)
