Kaleidoscope of Colour


Falling like a feather on a gentle breeze its graceful landing furthered my fascination.  The butterfly danced on the tree-fern softly unfolding its wings in a kaleidoscope of colour.

My camera’s viewfinder portrayed incredible detail as the once cocooned insect stared back at me. I could see a pooled honey combed eye reflecting the big expansive world while its thin legs tested the living landing pad.

The slowly flapping illusion drew me even closer as I silently tapped the button which froze the moment in time.

Pink Grey and Wild


Striking pink and pale grey suit this jovial character.

A sumptuous sunflower seed is pure indulgence for the bird who seems to speak a trilled language.

The messiness of the order tumbles from a worked beak.

A smile ignites in his eye and enlightens a cheeky personality as the burst of seed is enough to make this bird wild.

Pink and Grey Galah

This wild bird was photographed in my neighbour’s yard on the Canon EOS 1D MK IV

Circular Pool


I could smell the freshness of the forest. A raging river forged its path through the divided valley. Moss covered rocks crammed against each other fighting for elevation above the banks of the flowing river. Downstream the chuckle of laughing kookaburras broke the faint roar of the fading rapid.

I was surrounded by my element, the ever-changing outdoors.

Flowing and moving in a circular motion a collection of colours lingered at rapid’s end. I cast my view down to see my rippled reflection. A traversing mirror stared back. I could see a well-travelled landscape photographer in his element.

The last light was due for a show, patiently I watched and waited as a stream of gold broke from the scattered mass above me. My tripod was set. The image was ready. The shutter pressed.

I’m having a quick break from editing wedding photos and I thought I would upload a photo for the fans!

By simply choosing a different angle to photograph a common bird art can be created. I hope you like this one!

I created this artwork using layers blending modes in Photoshop. The effect is kind of cool and funky! I’m interested where do you see a picture like this belonging? In a child’s room; in a museum; at your house or should it go straight to the scrap heap? Thoughts?

I might even do a small tutorial for F Stop Lounge on how to do this – if I get the time! I have a few weddings to edit.

Nanarup Fine Art Landscape


Nanarup located near Maitreya Private Retreat

I have had this image sitting on my hard drive for some time. The image has been stitched together from 18 images to create my latest fine art landscape.

I can’t wait to head back to this location at the end of the month to photograph another wedding at the beautiful Maitreya Private Retreat.

Until Next Time – Happy Shooting
