Shooting on the edge?

Shooting on the edge?

Something I heard on a podcast years ago (I can’t remember which one) stuck with me until now and it’s always in the back of my mind when I’m thinking about what to shoot next. I don’t think I’ve talked about it before, so let me give you the basic concept so that you...

Something a little different

Something a little different

Not quite sure where the week went, but it’s Saturday again already so I guess it went somewhere! I’ve picked something a little different to share with you today. It’s a view of the Sydney skyline that intrigued me for a long time before I got around to photographing...

Water under the bridge

Monday’s get a bad rap don’t they? I used to hate Mondays. But I look at them a little more optimistically these days. A brand new week ready and waiting for us to wrestle it into submission. Last week is water under the bridge. There’s nothing we can do to change it....

how to point the wrong way and still get the shot

Hope your weekend was a good one! We had an interesting afternoon yesterday. I was Sonia’s assistant (translation = gear carrier) while she was photographing some adoption profile shots for two huskies. If you ever want to set yourself a challenge, try photographing...

fog

fog

Living in Sydney, I’m blessed to have an abundance of seascape shooting opportunities. But just like anywhere else, we only get a subset of all the possible weather conditions to shoot in, so there are some things that I do miss. Like Fog. We do get a bit of fog...

a little experiment

a little experiment

Thought I’d share this shot with you today, it was a little bit of an experiment. This particular location can only be (conveniently) reached at sunset during a short 2-3 week window per year in between the clocks changing for daylight savings, and the sunset...
