Cardwell Foreshore

When Cyclone Yasi unleashed on the coastal town of Cardwell in February 2011, trees were ripped up, houses were destroyed and the town’s foreshore – a popular stop for travellers between Cairns and Townsville – was swallowed up by the accompanying storm surge. It was very much a small community smashed up beyond recognition. Three …

Saibai Island

In terms of remoteness, Saibai Island is up there… In Australia’s it’s bit of a novelty to be able to look across the water to another country, but that’s exactly what you can do on Saibai – a low-lying island a few kilometres from the Papua New Guinea mainland. Anyway, it was an adventure getting …

The Kimberley

With those images of majestic boab trees standing sentinel over dramatic landscapes of sandstone escarpments, towering waterfalls and lush gorges, the Kimberley region of Western Australia has always stirred my imagination. In early October I had the chance to visit this ancient region, overland from Darwin to Broome, shooting some travel photography for a tour …

Coastal Lifestyle

Earlier this week I was shooting brochure images for a property development at Trinity Park… It was a mix of aerial images to highlight location and position, as well as photography to give a feel for the coastal lifestyle of the area including nearby Trinity Beach and Smithfield.  The weather in North Queensland for the …

Hinchinbrook Island

Western Australia

There’s nothing like a road trip, and a journey up the west coast of Australia is one that I’ve always looked forward to. Swimming with Whale Sharks was the main inspiration for this travel photography trip from Perth to Exmouth, but there’s a load of interesting places in between. With two weeks in hand it …

Ningaloo Marine Park

Swimmming with a Whale Shark is something I’ve always dreamed of doing… just the size, grace and presence of one of these mammoth fish is pretty amazing. Ningaloo Marine Park off Exmouth in Western Australia is probably the best place in Australia to get that opportunity, which I had on a break in early June. …

Coral Sea Resort

Whitsundays

Heart Reef is one of those iconic locations of North Queensland, that seems almost unreal unless you’ve seen it with your own eyes. Truth is, flying over the Great Barrier Reef in the Whitsundays, you’d miss it if wasn’t pointed out to you amongst the many coral formations. Small it may be, but magical none-the-less. …

Fraser Island

Ever since my first to Fraser Island several years ago, I’ve wanted to get back with my own 4WD and explore and photography the island at my own pace. Just before Easter I was able to make it down south to spend almost a week creating some landscape images of one of Queensland’s greatest National …
