The local paper in Toowoomba printed a story on me today – read here
Here are some new images from 2 days last week having a look around the Bogong High Plains. These were shot on the 5D2+24-70, with Pano head stitched in Photoshop. I hope you enjoy these images, please drop me a comment let me know what you think!
This is Wallace’s Hut, a short walk off the main road. A cattlemen’s hut built in 1889, it’s a magnificent sight surrounded by gnarly eucalypt trees. I was setting up for this pano on sunrise when these brumbies walked right into the shot! Love how the horses add to the high country theme of the shot – Man from Snowy River style! Intense shadows made the shot difficult.
The view from Falls Creek, of mountains covered in burnt trees from 2003 fires.
View of the ski slopes, without snow! The lake for off in the distance in Rocky Vally Storage, used for water supply of AGL Hydro Power Stations further down stream.
The town of Bright in Victoria is covered in stunning colour every Autumn. Here’s a few images I captured on a recent trip through the town, taken on the 5D with my new Canon 24-70 F2.8. I love this lens, it’s fast and the images are pin sharp. I hope you enjoy these images, there are many more to come!
I’m just back from a quick road trip through Alpine National Park in Vic, Bright to Omeo. What an amazing place through autumn! Only having 4 days to capture this place is impossible, and a little frustrating. I think you would need to live there for years to do it proper photographic justice. There is so much variety in the landscape. Here’s a few images I’ve stitched up so far, stay tuned many more to come.
A little hut up in the Bogong High Plains, called Copes Hut. It was built in 1929 for tourist accommodation. Funnily enough, I think it still gets used for tourist accommodation (unofficially!). Both evenings I visited this hut there were backpackers setting up for the night. Inside there is a fire place and bunks for 8 people!
Autumn colours in the little town of Bogong nestled in the steep hills of Alpine National Park. This town is a little hidden treasure, if you’re not paying attention heading to or from Falls Creek you’d easily miss the turn off.
Comments appreciated, let me know if you’ve been to this amazing area or plan on going!
Here’s a short clip I’ve put together from 5D MkII video and time lapse. The Barcoo shire is an area in western Queensland where you’ll find plenty of incredible scenery and very few people! Being a photographer dealing with video files and time lapse seems to be frustrating, but rewarding! This was a lot of fun to shoot, but definitely an eye opener into the epic world of time lapse and HD video. Click here to watch HD in Vimeo.
Here are some images from a place in Australia that seems like the only spot not being ravaged by natural disaster! Floods here in South Queensland, floods in Victoria, cyclones up north, fires in Perth… I hope these images might cheer up some in stormy, wet and windy places! Taken recently on a quick trip to Karijini National Park in the Pilbara.
A slideshow of photos from the recent Queensland Flood Crisis. The scale and magnitude of this flood is bigger than most people have seen in a lifetime. It was a humbling experience wading around the streets talking to many people who have lost everything. I was shooting for Getty Images in places like Toowoomba, Oakey, Dalby, Chinchilla and Lockyer Valley. Thanks for watching, comments appreciated.
