If I have impacted your life through my life (photography related or non photography related) over my years in WA I would love to say goodbye to you before my big move to Sydney.
Family, friends, online followers, work colleagues past and present… if we have or haven’t met be sure to come along and say hello or goodbye before I go. Let me know if I have impacted your life in Western Australia. It would really mean a lot.
I’m organising a bit of a farewell at the Aviary in Perth, Western Australia so I would love to see you. I will be at the Aviary from 7.30pm on Friday 22nd March..
The evening will be casual so feel free to bring partners and friends. So on that note I look forward to seeing you there.
If you would like to get in contact with me my phone number is 0408 957 090.
Rottnest Island is surrounded by pristine waters and only a short trip from the mainland making it a great weekend getaway. The locals refer to the island paradise as ‘Rotto’. For me this photograph captured on the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, sums up the island perfectly. Pristine beaches, clear water and amazing views – what more could you want? You can even see the City of Perth (which is my hometown) on the distant horizon!
Paradise found – love my rotto!
Until Next Time – Happy Shooting.
Wisps of playful cloud lingered hawk-like above the crooked building. I stared up at the gothic textures standing steadfast against the softening afternoon sun. Darkening shadows hung chiselled in the crevasses of the tired building. The angle of light was just about right as the flaws of time were enhanced by the soft illumination. I shuffled on the pavement to gain my composition while my eye gazed through the dusty viewfinder, through to the turret like windows.
The tower looked silently lost and forgotten in a place that once was humble cobblestone and carriage. All the streets used to be all like this, lost in the moment of time – bought together by people. However times have changed and it’s nice to see a building of its caliber sit proudly against a sea of glass and steel.
Abruptly the city noisily erupted around me. The clacking of heels and bustling of cars filled my arena. I found my arms weakening at the weight of my camera as it was defined by gravity. My moment of triumph seemed to crumble before the ageing architecture. I recomposed and strengthen myself. Holding my breath, I snapped at the shutter – clickety clack, the mirror jolted up and down revealing the architecture that stood the test of time.

I hope you enjoy this small selection of photographs I captured at Chris and Charlie’s wedding.
The wedding was held at the stunning Maitraya Luxury Private Retreat, located near Albany, Western Australia. If you haven’t stayed at Maitraya before I would certainly recommend it! The views are breathtaking and the accommodation is all class. Hey even Lady Gaga has even stayed there so it must be good!
The bridal party, family and guests were all fantastic to work with. I enjoyed photographing all the smiles and love for Chris and Charlie, so thank you to everyone who made this wedding truly spectacular!
To see more of the weddings photography by Leigh Diprose please visit Brides Perth.
This wedding was photographed using the Canon EOS 1D MK IV and Fujifilm X-Pro 1
So a quick little update for you all.
I have decided to take a leap of faith and move over to Sydney!!!
No guaranteed job is waiting for me just my hopes and dreams so in the lead up to my move (which will be in roughly 6 weeks time) there will be limited posts as I have quite a bit on my plate at the moment with weddings, work and preparing to move.
Don’t worry WA people I will be coming back to say hello to you all as my wedding photography will still continue for the next year or two.
I’m sure there will be some exciting developments to share with you all so if you haven’t already liked my Facebook page be sure to here – that way you will be informed of my happenings.
Until Next Time – Happy Shooting!
