North Queensland – (4) Port Douglas, Mossman and Palm Cove

I headed up to Port Douglas and Palm Cove for the last part of the trip. Having never been there before, I was keen to explore and experience the place.The main goal while I was up there was to visit the Mossman Gorge after seeing some pretty great photos on the net from there. The second morning I was up before sunrise (again) and jumped […]


North Queensland – (3) Atherton Tablelands

Part 3 of the Tropical North Queensland tour took me down to the Atherton Tablelands; the home of some pretty amazing waterfalls. The trip along the Gillies Hwy proved a test for my head which was spinning after the winding road trip through the mountains. Arrived by late arvo and dropped the bags off at the motel, then set off for the waterfall circuit track […]


North Queensland – (2) Fitzroy Island

Welcome to paradise! This place is one of the most amazing places I have ever been too. A 45min ferry ride from Cairns, Fitzroy Island was once used as a quarantine station for Chinese immigrants during the gold rush. It was also used as an outpost during WWII with its wide ranging views out over the reef. Now, it houses a resort and turtle sanctuary. […]


North Queensland – (1) Cairns

Somehow I ended up with a bit too much holiday leave from my usual day job; not a bad position to be in. Got told to bugger off for a bit so decided to venture north on a bit of photography trip. One of my favorite photographers Peter LIK had a million amazing shots from up there. In particular was a shot from a place […]



So I heard about this bay called Hanauma which is located south of Honolulu. Like most of Hawaii, the bay is actually an old volcanic cinder cone which had eroded over time causing the pacific ocean to flood in. It is now an amazing sea-life sanctuary with coral reefs and an abundance of fish to make it a top notch snorkeling location. Due to the […]


Sunset at Sunset Beach

The last shot of the day. Traveled up to the north shore and made a point of getting to sunset beach for at least one sunset shot. Cliche? Hey at least I can say now that i’ve done it! The ocean is quite calm up there in summer; I’d love to see the swell in winter! None the less, found a place to watch the […]



Another from the Big Island on Hawaii. I was driving back on the Saddle Rd from the Volcano National Park and we came across a lava field. It appeared the road we were on had been carved out of the flow which gave an incredible contrast between mother nature and man. Intrigued by the scale of the lava, we pulled over to investigate. Walking around […]



  Ventured up to the top of this 13,803 ft dormant volcano this night where there is 40% less oxygen and sub zero temperatures. Decided a bus would be the smart way up. Mauna Kea means white mountain in Hawaiian and it’s covered in snow in the winter months. This volcano is actually 33,100 ft when measured from the base at the bottom of the […]


Old Princess

Probably one of the most photographed spots in melbourne by budding photographers – me included! Ventured down to Princess Pier in Port Melbourne in late April to play around with my new toy for the year – the 5D mark iii. This is one of the shots I took on the night.


Québec Lights

We wanted a white Christmas in 2012… so headed to Québec City, Canada. We got what we asked for! We had to try twice to fly in there; with the first attempt getting close but being turned around at the last minute due to severe snow storms. About 3 days of traveling wasn’t getting our holiday off to a great start! Eventually got in there […]
