Aerial Photography

There is a whole new world up there, to fly like a bird and see the world with fresh, airbourne eyes is magical and constantly fills me with wonderment. I first started flying quadrocopters with cameras back in 2009 and long before that in the 1980s using radio...

Autumn Colour

Although the Blue Mountains have no natural deciduous trees the temptation to photograph the 'planted' areas around the area is too great. The lanes and gardens explode with reds, oranges and yellows around April here and this is a selection of mostly this last season...

Bird Life

Living in the Blue Mountains affords me access to some wonderful birds, and living on the escarpment in Mount Victoria, I do not have to travel far to see them. These images try to capture the character of the local bird life. In all seasons and conditions, snow,...

Blue Essence

While my big vistas or golden sunrises and sets certainly have inspirational or impressive qualities it is often my smaller, or vignette type shots around the Blue Mountains that have a little more ‘feel’ to them. Defining feel I suppose is a sense of a one off...

Falling Waters

Waterfalls have fascinated me since I started photography age 11. Their constantly changing form gives them a beauty and a sense that they are the life blood of the forests and escarpments. I particularly love doing mono treatments as the natural contrasts of the...

Gardens of Stone

Ever since I first visited the Blue Mountains back in 2000 I have been fascinated by the area in and around the Gardens of Stone (GoS). Perhaps it was originally the enigmatic name, that sense of a hidden paradise, or seeing some crude shots of 'jungle-like' pagodas,...

Golden Coast

Having lived for extended periods on the West Coast of the US and since 2005 on the East Coast of Australia I have an on-going fascination with the sea. Particularly at sunrise where the combination of the delicate colours in the sky often contrasts with a powerful...

Iceland

A country which has always been high on my list to photography and in late 2017 I had the chance to spend 10 days exploring and capturing. I circumnavigated the main ring road one and a half times, visiting some key spots twice, which doubled the chances of great...

Majestic Mono

Often colour isn't enough to evoke the power and grandeur of wide open spaces. I regularly make the decision that shots I take are destined for a mono treatment and when the atmosphere is at it's most mysterious I will deliberately look for textures and light shapes....

Misterious Land

As a photographer one is always looking for magical light but also magical atmosphere. Living in the Blue Mountains one comes to accept but also love the mist and fog that pervades everything. After a night or previous day rain one can almost be guaranteed valleys...

Nightscapes & Astro

I have an unhealthy fascination with night and astro photography and particularly in remote national parks in Australia where the lack of ambient light means very strong milky way against iconic land features are possible. This is a small collection of shots over the...

Perfect Day

Mid Day Light - The golden light (sunrise and sunset) and blue hour before sunrise and after sunset are the key times for my photography. But sometimes I am caught late morning or afternoon, often on hikes to destinations or just for the joy of hiking and find the...

Stunning Sunset

I am often spoilt for choice when it comes to sunsets in the Blue Mountains. When I am in different parts of the world I of course research the best spots for sunset and wish I had a locals knowledge, but now I am so familiar with the Blue Mountains that I have...

Sublime Sunrise

I pride myself of hardly missing a sunrise wherever I am based. Each time the magic of the light slowly building from darkness through to an early dawn glow and then a striking sunburst rise is a constant pleasure. The effort to get to new places often means long...
