Catching up and being a working photographer

Looking at the path I have chosen for myself I realise it isn’t an easy one. Most people who pursue a photography career do so by doing portraits and weddings. It seems easy, but what do you do if you don’t want to go that way?

Being a risk taker – infrared photography

Most of you know that by now I have had one of my old cameras converted to be an infrared camera. It wasn’t a new idea, I had considered it once before when I first got my D800. At the time I had two D300s bodies, and I didn’t need two so I thought why […]

If is a little word, but it can mean big things

Long Exposures at Docklands

In the last week I’ve spent several hours at Docklands here in Melbourne, on separate days teaching people how to do long exposure photography.

Long Exposures

Long exposure photography is very popular now. I really enjoy doing them and experimenting to see what I can do. I recently got a new filter, the Formatt Hitech 10 stop filter.  I already had the Lee Big Stopper, but I have really liked all the other Formatt Hitech filters I have so it seemed […]
