More Southern Lights

We were blessed with another solar storm that created another Aurora Australis on 17th December. This time I had figured out my camera settings a bit better and managed to get some nice shots of the colour and beams, although it was nothing compared to the amount of colour and …

A big change with a new toy

As much as I have loved my Canon 5DIV camera, it was well and truly time for an upgrade. I am definitely not an early adopter of new technology so going mirrorless has not really been on my radar until now, but it didn’t make sense to spend the $ …

Farm Photography Studio

For decades I was a dedicated natural light photographer, always travelling to locations for photo sessions. But in 2017 I came across the work of photographers in multiple genres that were producing the most incredible artistic work both indoor and outdoor with studio lighting and my fascination with working with …
