The things you find…

I was driving home from a commercial job the other day when I spotted this place in the distance. A nice place near Jandowea, Qld.

Also thought some might like to see the original. I was after more punch, so I added an infrared BW layer, then blended using multiply. A bit of dodging and burning and here’s the result.

Queensland Flood Crisis

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.


Flood Devastation in Queensland

The Darling Downs and Lockyer Valley are still a disaster zone, the damage is incredible. 22 towns and cities were covered in water last week, an area the size of France & Germany combined! I’ve been out shooting some of the flood damage in Dalby, Chinchilla, Oakey and Murphy’s Creek.

Cover Shot for Gas Today

Gas Today Magazine have selected one of my photographs for their November magazine cover. It’s is a photo of the new Condamine Power Station in the Surat Basin, built by AE&E and now run by Queensland Gas Company. I’m stoked to have this image featured, having a covershot is a buzz for a photographer!

The image was taken from 25m high cherry picker. I’m surprised I got a still shot, it was blowing a gale and the machine was swaying in the breeze!

Shot with Canon 5DMk2, 17-40L.


Condamine Power Station

I’ve just finished off an industrial shoot of Condamine Power Station near Chinchilla in Qld. The client, AE&E required a library of images of the various components, as well as overall site shots from an EWP. The cloud cover was disappointing through the day, but the place really came to life on dusk when the lighting fired up. The second image is a panorama of 6 images, shot hand-held from an 80ft cherry picker swaying in the breeze. Amazingly photoshop stitched it up without a drama.
