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!

Cradle Coast Pantry, the new book by Phil Kuruvita and John T Bailey is on it's way to

Tasmania, and is due in bookshops around the 16th October. Following on from the success of Tamar Valley Pantry which was published last year, this book looks at the amazing array of fine food producers that produce quality food in Tasmania's North West. Mouth watering recipes from one of Tasmania's most respected chefs John T Bailey and beautiful images by Tasmania's only Grand Master of Photography Philip Kuruvita means that this book will appeal to many different people. For the foodie in your life, for family and friends that live away from Tassie and as the perfect coffee table/kitchen book in your own home.

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
