Below is a sample of a few of my better photographs. All of my best pictures are on My Flickr Page. I am a member of the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club Camera Club. I am also a moderator of Flickr's popular Photography Critique group.
These tiny birds are among my favourites. The male is in blue and the female is brownish. This photo was taken with a point-and-shoot camera. It is featured on the cover of the book Sydney Birds and Where to Find Them. It has also appeared in many other places including The Nature Conservancy.
I'm very much interested in Creative Photography. My Wounded Pear image was accepted in the 2012 Sydney International Exhibition of Photography. On one hand you can look at this image and see it as very sad -- on the other hand you can stand back and say it is silly. This is what I like: creating an image that is artistically pleasing yet brings an emotional ambivalence or cognitive dissonance to the viewer.
In the background is a flower being refracted through dripping water from a faucet. This image got an acceptance at the 2011 Sutherland Shire National Exhibition of Photography.
I have a fear of spiders. I really find them very very creepy. Yet for some reason unknown to me, I love to photograph them.
Combining one of my favourite birds with my favourite flower, these types of shots I go for every late July when the wattles are in their peak bloom. In the right place, finding these birds on the wattles is a certainty. This photo was accepted at Sydney Harbour International Exhibition of Photography.
Clovelly is one of my favourite beaches in Sydney, Australia. It is known for excellent snorkelling and is also quite safe for young children. This shot was captured right after sunrise. I was captured by the way the golden light hitting was caressing the rocks. The slow shutter speed was used to capture the motion blur around the rock on the left.
This photo was taken at O'reilly's Rainforest Retreat. I did a 12 hour road trip for the entire purpose of photographing the regent bowerbird which I had never seen in the wild before. It was told it was guaranteed to see it there, and that proved to be very true. What is unique about this shot is that it was done with a basic studio lighting setup, which seems nearly impossible to do for a wild bird. But I found a way to make it possible!
