A landscape photographer's life is not alway's an easy one

Ski out in blizzards to get that perfect photo.


Sounds awful but when there is a break in the storm you can get some fantastic photos. These are taken at Falls Creek Australia. I have skied away from the resort for about 6 hours and when the weather cleared I managed to get these images.

You don't get good photos from inside watching TV you must always go outside. .

Snow tip #1

Play around but as a good you usually under expose your photos by 2/3 of a stop.




Snow tip  #2 

Be prepared for any weather condition.

Australian Alpine Huts

Snow in Australia


Hi everyone, like most of you throughout the world you might not realise that Australia has snow falls and a seasonal alpine area. Yesterday I went cross country skiing 22km to take these pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

Wallace's hut,  Cattleman's Hut 11km of skiing from the nearest town. This hut is over 100 years old.
The Inside of the hut taken with a six second exposure, and yes I had to carry the tripod the 11km out to the hut and return.

Lots of hard work and fun

Australian outback animal?

Outback animal yes/no


Last year I was driving in the outback and discoverd at a distance what appeared to be a large animal, in fact it was a water tower for an abandoned train line converted to look like an animal of sorts. (Some people in the bush have just to much time)

For those of you who have asked what I look like here are some recent images of my self. (Sorry for boring the rest of you).

Personally I prefer the image of my self in the Simpson desert last year, compared with the corporate image below.
