  • Swell of the Decade?

    This past weekend TC Winston hit the east coast with the 'swell of the decade'. While northern NSW got battered by very large waves, with all the points around the Gold Coast firing,  the Sunshine Coast seemed to miss out on the bulk of it. Like everyone else, I got up super early and headed to Noosa expecting to see waves in the 8ft range as predicted, but just like everyone…
  • Morning Paddle

    Sun is shining, waves are breaking… summer on the Sunshine Coast is looking good. It’s been a pretty barren few months for waves but hopefully we are in for a good run of swell over the next few months. I love the backlit light on the waves when shooting in the morning on the east coast.

  • Wild Horse

    Driving back from Byron last week I decided to stop and shoot some photos of the Glass House Mountains from the top of Wild Horse Mountain. Nothing out of the usual except it was midday on a steamy 33 degree summers day… never the best conditions for photography. Not to be deterred I parked at the bottom, put 15kg’s of camera gear on my back and walked to the top.…

  • Under the Moon

    Shot at Tea Tree Bay in the Noosa National Park during the last full moon. I kinda had a vision for the shot of the the moon setting over the boiling pot but as the sun had risen the moon started to get quite faint. I didn’t have much time and the moon was still a bit high in the sky. Luckily a couple of surfers walked into the frame to…

  • Noosa Moon

    Taken from the breakwall at the mouth of the Noosa River. I used an 80mm lens for this one. Normally I would try to shoot with a longer lens, like a 200mm – 300mm to make the moon appear bigger, but I had to settle with a wider angle otherwise it would have cropped too much off the headland.  I wasn’t able to make it to the north shore in…

  • Burnt

    A saw-edge gahnia after controlled burning in the Noosa National Park behind Peregian Beach. The controlled burning is carried out every couple of years before the summer to minimise the chance of bush fires. It took a while to find a suitable foreground object as the sunset had started to light up.. I then stumbled upon this gahnia that added something in the foreground that the shot needed. BUY PRINT

  • Bounce

    An image I took today while walking along Peregian Beach during the middle of the day. I don’t often shoot at this time of day but the weather was too nice not to. For something a little different I tried to get my shutter speed as slow as possible to get some movement in the water, the lowest I could get under the bright conditions was 1/40s @ f22. It…

  • Mudjimba Moon

    It took me a few goes to get this image. I had this particular image in my mind for a while but I struggled a bit to make it happen. Overtime I tried previously the weather would work against me… there would either be too much cloud on the horizon or it would be raining. There was a few full moons that were clear but furphies law was that I…

  • Sunset Reflections

    This was probably one of the best sunsets I have seen in quite a while… unfortunately I wasn’t onto it as early as I would like. It was about 5pm when I realised just how good the clouds were so I jumped in the car and headed off to find a good spot. I soon realised that I wasn’t going to be able to make it to the Noosa National…

  • Stumers Reflection

    This morning when I headed to Stumers Creek  to shoot the sunrise I wasn’t expecting to get this shot. I originally wanted to get a shot of the creek mouth leading out to the sea but when I arrived there was a couple of other photographers already there so I looked for something else. I grabbed couple of photos of the low tide sand ripples reflection the sunrise, but I wasn’t super…
