A change is coming… 06/3

2 Comments


This blog has been up almost a year now and it has been mainly to showcase new images and the such. I wont be doing anything radical to change the appearance of the blog or anything like that but more so making this blog more informative to the reader.

For starters, each month there will be an “Print of the Month” which will be available at a discounted rate. but along with the print of the month, I will be giving you an insight into some of the companies, products and services I use and recommend as well as the odd photo tip along the way. In the mean time this is an image taken from a different angle of the famous Q1 building in Surfers Paradise hope you like.

The change… you will have to wait and see but all I can say its a big one!!!

Taken on the Fuji G617 Velvia 50

Cheers

Surfers Paradise Aerial Photography 01/3

1 Comment


I’m Back… Thanks for your patience it has been a crazy start to the year that’s for sure.

The Gold Coast is forever changing and buildings are popping up left right and centre so after waiting for the completion of the Circle on Cavil project a few years ago I decided to head up in a helicopter to capture the city on the beach (Surfers Paradise) from a different angle. If you have been to the Gold Coast recently or you live here you will know that there are two major developments going on in Surfers Paradise at the moment, one being Soul a 77 story monolith and the HIlton development which will stand at 32 and 57 stories so there are cranes all over the place at the moment.

I thought I would post my take on Surfers Paradise but without all the cranes and construction going on. I will be also getting up in the air once Soul is finished so stay tuned for those images as well.

Cheers

Kirra Beach Shack 19/10

3 Comments


Hey everyone,

After weeks and weeks of rain the sun finally decided to poke its head out from behind the clouds. I have photographed most of the Gold Coast but this time I decided to head south to a little place called Kirra Beach.

Kirra is located just north of the famous snapper rocks and was home to one of the best surf breaks in the country but sadly due to sand pumping the beach has a mass of sand build up which has affect the break quite significantly. One of the things I liked most about Kirra is when the surf was good you would get a large crowd all piled in watching from this little hut right on the point. For those of you who don’t know the area, all the sand in this image used to be covered by water and is where the waves used to break. Not a bad view if you ask me…

If you would like to know more about the devastating sand build up at Kirra Point click this link http://www.kirrapoint.org/

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.

Underwater wave 12/9

5 Comments


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.

Cheers

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.

Broadwater Boats 15/5

4 Comments


On a cold autumn morning, my alarm goes off normally all I want to do is sleep but I had been wanting to photograph at this location for a long time and finally the conditions were favourable. Here in Queensland the sky has been clear with only the slightest hint of cloud for the past week or so which is great provided that there is no wind but it has been quite windy not to mention cold. With the clear sky I knew at sunrise there would be a slight pink hue through the sky and that was exactly what I got.

The boating culture on the gold coast seems to get bigger and bigger as time goes by and for me this shot of the Broadwater looking back towards Main Beach and Surfers Paradise is a classic gold coast image.

Lamington National Park 09/5

I have been playing around with some black and white landscapes lately mainly beach shots but I wasn’t really that happy with any of them. I ended up looking a little outside the box and put one of the photographs I had captured from the Gold Coast Hinterland at Elabana Falls.

I am not sure if I really like this shot but it is a little different to my normal but here it is anyway. Let me know what you all think.

Cheers
