Photography

Along the menu bar above you'll see several ways that I impoverish myself. Photography certainly helps in that respect.

Some of my favourite photos are available on Redbubble.com - if you see something that you like, contact me and I will make it available to purchase.

A lot more of my photos are on Flickr. You can visit by clicking the box below.

I was recently privileged to be asked to tweet the curated @WeRPhotography account on Twitter for a week. An interview with me about my photography is below.

What sort of photography do you do?

I try to do a lot of different styles of photography. I'm an amateur. I shoot on holidays and on photography trips. I don't do weddings or studio work. I have a lot of photos of my children. I probably have as many photos of my motorbike in various places around Australia, but I am told that these are only interesting to me.

How long have you been shooting?

I seem to have some very old prints from a school trip when I was 11, but I would say I first thought about taking 'good photos' in about 1992, aged 15, when I went to Nepal. I started to think of photography as my hobby in about 2003-2004 and have really got interested in the ins and outs of the craft for about 4 years.

What's your favourite piece of gear? 

Well I do love my Canon 5DMkII. I got it when the prices dropped just before the MkIII came out about a year ago. I'm still getting my head around all the functions of it, but it allows for so much flexibility in challenging situations. I almost always leave the f/4 24-105L lens on it, although I use a 50mm f/1.8 Mk2 at times. I've got a Vanguard Alta-Pro tripod which is really useful because of the 'tilty thing' the centre arm does that lets you get the camera almost on the ground. I cart my gear around in a Lowepro Compurover AW which just fits the carry-on luggage dimensions if you smile nicely to the hostess, but for short outings I use a Crumpler Five Million Dollar Home. I've just bought a Hoya NDx400 filter which I'm looking forward to playing with.
