Iridescence

There is magic in the air, ocean and sand at dawn and dusk! I love the subtle colours and other-worldly glow you can capture in the early or late hours of the day.

The Human Element

One thing I have always struggled with is taking photos of people who I don’t know. I have this idea that, somehow, getting a photo of someone without them realising is an invasion of privacy – having their image committed to a kind of permanency that they may not appreciate.

Burleigh

Another beach I often visit is Burleigh on the Gold Coast. It has some interesting rock formations at either end of the beach, and is a fairly quiet beach if you are there early enough in the morning. Recently I have been venturing out of my photographic ‘comfort zone’, playing

Coffin Bay National Park

I visited Coffin Bay National Park in South Australia earlier this year and was in awe of the scenery and the hyperreal coastal colours – it is a truly beautiful destination and also fantastic for wildlife. Soon I will be going to Kangaroo Island for the first time – I

Pink sky in morning…

Sailor’s warning… but photographer’s delight! This amazing sunrise appeared at Burleigh on the Gold Coast a few months ago. 

Croatia

As well as visiting Greece, I also spent time in Croatia which abounded in natural beauty. The second and third images are of the famous Blue Hole near the island of Vis – you almost need to wear sunnies as the water glows so brightly with the most incredible fluorescent
