Seeing the World of Beauty

Seeing the World of Beauty

I'd rather immerse myself in what makes the world lovely instead of what makes me sad. Any day of the year is a good day for this.


Why We Take Photos

Why We Take Photos

On a journey through the wide open spaces of South Australia and the Outback, I am reminded of why we take photos and how lucky we are to be able to share the beauty of the world.

The Photographic Paradox

Each photograph is a stepping stone on a journey. We think of photography as freezing time and capturing the moment. But what are we really holding onto and where do all those pixels end their journey?

Take it Slow at the Night Market

Last week I shared a series of stills from the Queen Victoria Market, from the reopening of the Night Market. This time I've gone back with my very modest video rig to capture a slow-motion series using the high-speed ability of the Lumix G9 and a single lens.


Putting The Photo First

Putting The Photo First

I believe that the photo should be more important than the photographer. When I travel with camera in hand my objective to achieve something wonderful in the way of photography. I want to make a beautiful image, something more amazing than anything I have done before. It’s about the photograph. It’s about the act of creation.

Philosophy

If you want to change the way you take photos you have to change the way you think. Photography is not just about F-stops and shutters. You cannot shoot what you cannot see.


Take More Photos

Take More Photos

Simple enough advice. There are three reasons we stop ourselves from shooting more frames as we travel than we might otherwise. When you look more closely there is usually just one reason, and it can make a big difference to how quickly you develop your craft.
