The longer I stand, Toolangi, Victoria

Reflecting – Nine

The longer I stand, the more I see. This small section of rainforest in Toolangi feels ancient and can be overwhelming to take in, I mean to really take in.  Many pass through within a few moments.  I find the more time I spend in […]

Daydream, Murrindindi, Victoria

Reflecting – Eight

What does a photograph need? What is photography? And what’s it for? The more I consider what photography is all about, the more I realise it’s not about photography at all.  A photograph is simply a way to communicate an idea, feeling or perspective and

Weathered Boat I, Werribee, Victoria

Reflecting – Seven

There’s an old boat on a beach I visit occasionally, it must have been there a while. The first time I photographed the boat, I captured it all.  A front view looking out to sea and a side view down the beach, but somehow I

Reflecting – Two

This photograph was captured a year ago.  When I visited the dam again recently the reeds had almost doubled in height.  Time is always present in the landscape.

Reflecting – One

I’ve been reflecting on 2018, and this image was one of the first from last year. Over the next few weeks I’ll post more images from 2018 and some reflections on each one. This photograph was taken near the Murrumbidgee river in January 2018 about

Reflecting on 2018

2018 finds me asking…. Where to from here? I’ve noticed a shift in the way we interact, new expectations are forming, generational change seems to occur in an ever shortening timeframe. Countless images are now shared online, supported by ever growing communities. It’s a collective

Black Spur wall print

Think big

As I stood under the tall trees, wrapped in God like rays, I hadn’t yet considered the possibility of a wall sized print. But funny things happen.  I have to thank Will for thinking big and requesting this image at wall size, I love the
