Shearing Shed

As a travelling photographer I spend most of my time going ‘ooo ah, check out the light over there’ and the rest of my time cursing the harsh outback light that makes it almost impossible to take any good photos during the day. But take heed – one place in Australia you are absolutely assured […]


Why we do what we do

Photos like this sum up why we own a four wheel drive and go to the places that we go. How much would you like to be sitting here, by Cuttaburra Creek, NSW under a shady tree. The only downside was that there didn’t appear to be any fish in the river…or maybe we aren’t […]

These birds are notoriously difficult to photograph but I hopped from the […]
