Off to Melbourne 03/6

No Comments

Hi everyone,

I am off to Melbourne for the APPA’s and a little bit of photography as well.

Growing up in Melbourne I am looking forward to photographing the city i grew up in but with only 4 days up my sleeve i will mainly be shooting in and around the city. I have plenty of film for the pano camera and plenty of room on my digital cards as well so it should be a fun trip.

Good luck to everyone who entered the awards hope the judges are kind this year.

Stormy Sunset 16/3


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.

5D Mark 2 – 24-70mm2.8L – ND 3 stop – 3 second exposure

Also my new website is in the final stages of its design and will be released on Monday 29th March.

Port Macquarie – APPA 26/2


I have been doing this photography gig since I left school in 2002, I started out at the markets selling some of my photos as mounted prints which were ready to frame. Looking back at them now I cringe, crooked horizons and all, even a Nikon thrown in there yep I once used a Nikon sad I know. I finally upgraded to a Canon EOS 3 and have been using Canon bodies and lens’ alongside my Fuji 617 ever since gotta love that velvia.

This is one of my images I will be entering into the 2010 Queensland Professional Photography Awards QPPA and depending on how it goes it might make an appearance in Melbourne for the Australian Professional Photography Awards APPA. Over the years I have won a few awards both state and national so I am hoping to add to the collection.

This shot is a 3 image horizontal stitch of Tacking Point lighthouse in Port Macquarie
