True North Workshop

Australia Day was a day to remember. You couldn’t have asked for a nicer venue – on the True North at Rottnest Island. The speakers were informative on their various styles of photography and gave away ground breaking secrets not to mention a ‘world first’ by Christian on how to copy and paste luminous filter layers (really it was ground breaking…I’m not kidding).

So here are a couple from the day. Make sure you vote for any of these images if any make the finals on Christian Fletcher’s Blog.

Happy Shooting…back to the wedding photography for me : )


Arum Lilly

Ah my old stomping ground – North Lake where the tiger snakes are as frequent as clouds in the sky.

North lake is adjacent to Bibra Lake in Western Australia. You will find these magnificent flowers in full bloom when the season is right. Some say Arums are weeds (well the are) but for me they are one of my favorite flowers to photograph. I remember wading out in swamp like conditions hoping not to run into a tiger snake to take this photo.


Free Flow

My two and a half month holiday is coming to an end. I have really enjoyed the break and I now have a new lease on life.

Whenever the camera is in my hand the excitement kicks in. I can’t wait to share whatever I photograph with you because some things in life are meant to be enjoyed…

Happy Shooting!

This is how I feel at the moment. Moody! My flash is broken. I put it back together after it fell into the ocean and it seems that it has seen the light and kicked the bucket : (

Hope you like this photo it was actually a really clear blue day. I decided to go for the infrared look to bring out the white clouds.

Well its back to the house reno/wedding photography for me.

Happy Shooting

Looking forward to the True North on Australia Day!



I would like to thank everyone for there ongoing support for the website ( and blog. Since the start of December 2009 the website has had just over 20,000 hits from Australia, United States, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Canada, Austria, United Kingdom and France to name a few.  So thank you for viewing and all your comments.

Having this blog has certainly pushed me to take better photos. It has been really great to see what other photographers are up to and through their photos I get a lot of inspiration.

So keep up the great work everyone.

Smoke Photography

Well I know what you may be thinking….. that these images are from Denmark or something? A bit alternative?

Thats smoke photography for you! These were taken in my lounge room using a Canon 1D MKIII & 85mm f1.2, tripod,  Canon Macro Twin Light, Canon 430EX Flash and a reflector. The black backgound was my newly purchased Canon T shirt that Adam Halsall designed on Red Bubble (thanks Adam).

Let me know if you think that the title of the image should be any different. It’s almost like those magic eye things. Everyone sees something different in the image. Enjoy

Well its back to the wedding photography for me.

Until next time Happy Shooting.
