Its been a while since my last post so I decided to drag up a shot from the archives…

Taken a few years ago but what I can remember about this shot is that I was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes.

Hope you like

Fraser Island Shipwreck – SS Maheno 16/9


Fraser Island Photography - Maheno shipwreck

Fraser Island is situated just 300kms north of Brisbane and is the world’s largest sand island stretching 123km parallel to the Queensland coast. In 1992 Fraser Island was World Heritage Listed by UNESCO in recognition of its exceptional natural beauty so what better place for a photographer to head for a weeks worth of exploring.

I have been to Fraser Island dozens of times and taken hundreds and hundreds of photos of the place but the island is weird and has weather like no place I have ever been. In the week that we spent on the island we had it all, torrential rain, freezing cold mornings, sea mist so thick you couldn’t see 200m in front of you, hot sunny days without a cloud in the sky as well as a few storms and days with wispy cloud that covered the whole sky. Pretty much we had a dream trip.

This particular morning was our last of the trip and after a weeks worth of fifteen hour days all I wanted to do is sleep but Murphy’s law meant that if I went back to sleep the sky would have done something amazing so I got up and drove the 15 odd kms and began waiting. Cold and tired I waited and waited until I had the slightest of a reading from my light meter, still very dark I fired off a 12 min exposure and waited, these shots can bring out colours that the human eye can’t see and when you get the right conditions they are amazing. I continued shooting on the Fuji G617 while the light was at its best but I also shot some digital after I was happy with what I had got.

Not at its peak this is a shot of the Maheno shipwreck is a shot I had been after for quite a while and everything just fell into place, tide was low, wispy cloud good colour in the sky what a way to end the trip.

Anyway that is how the trip to Fraser ended till next time happy snapping.

Underwater wave 12/9


Hey everyone,

The past month has been very busy but finally things are beginning to settle down a little and i’ve found some time to put something up on here.

I have a massive backlog of images to edit from both Fraser Island and New Zealand but I should manage to get through a fair chunk of that this week but in the mean time this is a shot take on the Queensland/New South Wales border with the Aquatech housing for the 5D Mark 2. I kind of like this image as you can keep looking at it and find new things in it kind of like looking at fish swimming in a tank, anyway hope you all like it and ill keep you posted on when the new images are up.

Currumbin Beach Black and White 04/9


Currumbin Beach photos

I found this shot today, hidden on my computer so after a quick edit here is a new pic of Currumbin here on the Gold Coast. This location is quite a good one, lots to shoot but i think the sky really makes this shot especially in black and white.
