Great Barrier Reef – Far North Queensland 05/4


Being a landscape photographer certainly has its perks, on this day I spent a few hours on one of the three sand cays off the Cairns coast. I was doing a commercial shoot for a customer in Cairns and part of the shoot was to photograph the cay and surrounding reef which I can remember as clear as day, one of the most memorable shoots I have had.

I hope you like.

Millaa Millaa Falls 16/4


Millaa Millaa Falls - Tropical North Queensland

This is a shot I took at Millaa Millaa Falls about an hour south west of Cairns. I waited about 5 hours before everything managed to fall into place to take this shot. There were busloads and busloads of people all day not to mention the blue sky and patchy cloud (not something I recommend) but sometimes you have to make do with the light you are given especially when you are 1,800 kms from home and in this case I ended up having to wait until all the tourists had left for the day and the sun had set to get that even light I wanted.

My trip to Cairns was plagued with hazy sky and a pretty strong wind but I did manage to get a couple good shots out of the trip.

SILVER Award at the Queensland Professional Photography Awards QPPA 10/4


Hey everyone,

After a two year break from taking photos for a living I have just been told I have won a SILVER Award at the Queensland Professional Photography Awards QPPA in the landscape category. I will now be working on a selection of images for the up coming National Awards which this year will be held in Melbourne on the 4-6 June.

The weather in Cairns is hot and muggy and the light isn’t really worth getting the camera out just yet due to a thick haze in the sky. I managed a few quick shots this morning but nothing worth raving about just yet so you will just have to wait…
