This blog is mainly about photography , but fishing and wine may make an appearance every now and again. I shoot a variety of different subjects, a lot of black and white family portraits, but I got into photography because I love it and have managed to maintain the love, while making it my business, so I have the best of both worlds! 20 years ago we chose to move to Tasmania, the beautiful Island State where the weather is just right for me and scenery is a landscape photographers dream.I love to travel, so some of the images will be from the rest of the world, but without doubt, one of the best things about traveling the world is that first lungful of fresh air as you step off the plane back in Tassie. Those of you who live in Tasmania will know what I mean! the rest of you should really come and visit. Hope you like the images on this blog, feel free to ask a question, make a comment, and generally let me know what you want to see. Let's talk!

Faces of Launceston 1996

 

1996 marks the half way point in this project to document some of the people and faces of Launceston.

Blue Stone Bay, Freycinet

Blue Stone Bay, Freycinet

Early morning at Blue stone bay in Tasmania's Freycinet National Park on the East coast.

 

Accessible only by 4 wheel drive, we had arrived in the dark and stumbled our way down to the water to set up for dawn

The beautiful rounded boulders are a perfect counter to the rugged coastline and incoming tide. I remember that it was cold that morning and the rocks were slippery . My brother David was with me so I sent him out onto the rocks to add a human element to the picture

Slices of Life - Generations

Generations

 

 

 

Why not organise an extended family session, all the kids, the in-laws and the outlaws, the grand kids, cats and dogs. What a wonderful way to record your family with all the joy and enthusiasm that being a family brings. This is not normally a quiet peaceful session, rather it is more like a whirlwind that smashes its way through the day, but then, that’s what families are like - aren’t they? A great chance to make a number of the stages of life images in the one session, and to explore those special bonds that develop within families

Young Adults

 

Life has become so busy that very few photographs are being made at home any more, especially if you discount the images being made for Facebook and other such web communities. This is the moment when they are perched ready to fly off into their own lives. University or work is just around the corner, and it won’t be long before they are moving out. Whether it is just around the corner or to the other side of the country, now is the time to capture a family portrait and to stop time still, if only for just a moment.

Best time for baby photographs?

Best time for baby photographs?

THE FIRST YEAR

In the first year, time seems to speed up and slow down all at the same time. Days roll into one amid late night feeds, day time sleeps ,and an amazing number of nappy changes. Every day there are ground breaking moments: the first smile, the first sleeping through the night, first steps, words, and teeth. Let us capture these moments that are the initial stages of a journey of a lifetime.

Slices of Life -Photographing Children

Slices of Life -Photographing Children
Childhood
 
Both parents and children have to adjust to the influences of school, and it is a bitter sweet period for the parents as you realise that your child now has a part of their life in which you are not involved. They are learning new skills and wanting to use them, and it is much easier for your photographer to build a relationship and to capture those special expressions and moments. At this stage, we ask the parents to take a step back so that the photographer has a chance to engage with the child in one-on-one conversation. Once this is happening, all those emotions and expressions are never far behind.

THE TODDLER YEARS

 

 

 

Welcome to the next Stage of Life! This is the one that parents remember most vividly - for both the good and the bad! Independence is the key motivating factor, they want to walk by themselves, feed themselves, and they want to choose there own clothes, and nothing is going to stop them! Often this stage is complemented by the birth of another sibling into the family, and as the prospect of pre-school draws closer, you realise that your baby has turned into a Toddler!
