Photographing Flowering Plants – what a joy!

Australian wildflowers have a strong appeal to the senses – some are voluptuous in shape and form, some fragile; some have a scent that is almost overpowering, but in others the perfume is delicate; some are bold and brightly coloured, but others are pale and shy. They are among my favourite subjects for photographing with […]

Aerial Photography

The primary advantage of photographing from the air is that you are able to get perspectives that are not possible on the ground. To a great extent, the effect of light on landscape from overhead, whether from an oblique or vertical perspective, is much the same as on the ground. The main difference is that […]

Rainforest – a photographers paradise

Rainforests, perhaps more than most environments, provide a multi-sensory experience, involving touch, sight, smell and hearing. Being in the rainforest is a profound experience for me. It envelops my soul, taking me to a peaceful place, emotions not easily communicated in a photograph. The best conditions for photographing rainforest are either bright overcast or misty […]

Landscape Photography – content, mood and design

Australia is a wondrous land of ever-changing landscapes. From vast, open, arid dunes and grasslands with dead-flat horizons to craggy alpine peaks. These extremes are often only a short drive from urban centers and, with camera in hand, it is easy to get lost in landscape magic. Regardless of the type of camera or lens, […]

Photographing Waterbirds

Birds that prefer freshwater lakes, rivers, floodplains and coastal or estuarine waterways as their principal habitat are collectively known as waterbirds. This large group includes familiar species such as ducks, geese and stilts and, of course, the Australian Pelican and the Black Swan — ever-popular photographic subjects. Others, such as egrets, herons, the Brolga and […]

Photographing The Great Barrier Reef

With over 2900 coral reefs and some 900 islands and cays (70 cays are big enough to have names), this World Heritage Area attracts photographers from everywhere, especially underwater specialists. Various Great Barrier Reef experiences are on offer: some focus on the inner reefs and continental islands; others offer prolonged charters to the outer reef […]

Photographing Marine Fish

In the recent past, the number of people making pictures of these animals in their natural habitat could be counted on one hand. Today, it is another matter altogether. Marine fish photography is an extremely popular past time. I believe this is due to the growth in dive schools, charters, importing of excellent, safe, reasonably […]

Photographing Australians

While on deployment with the Royal Australian Navy in 1969, an American sailor in Hawaii introduced me to the fascinating field of photographing people. I met him on the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga when I was there observing US Navy search and rescue techniques. Even though I had only ever photographed fish at the time, I was […]

Photographing Insects and Spiders

Photographing insects is a rewarding pastime. They are such small, often insignificant creatures to most people. However, a close-up photograph showing detail and colour can change that attitude. There are four basic ways to work with insects: Drop to the ground almost anywhere and take a very close look. This can be a good thing […]

Photographing Trees

Whether painted with autumn colours, dusted with snow, shrouded in mist or backlit by a crimson sunset, trees are amongst the most photographed subjects in the natural world. Photographing them can be pure joy wherever you are working – in open woodlands, dense wet tropical rainforests, the mallee, or the mulga. I have long found […]
