| | The Creation of Icehole

The Creation of Icehole

Icehole won a gold award at the Australian Professional Photography Awards this year and it is a composite image. This means that it is not real. A composite Image is a picture that is made from the combination of multiple images merged into one. It is a constructed creation.

The two images that were used to create Icehole were taken in Iceland whilst running a tour with Luke Austin and Adam Williams (The Light Collective). The iceberg was photographed at Black Sand Beach near Jökulsárlón and the ‘Icehole’ that frames the subject was photographed just outside an ice cave, also near Jökulsárlón.

My experience in South Georgia and Antarctica

Since 1998 I have travelled around more than 80 countries all over the word and visited and photographed thousands of amazing places. I have trekked in the most beautiful National Parks in the world, done hundreds of game drives all over Africa, and dived in some of the most amazing reefs in our oceans. I have taken aerial flights to photograph glaciers, mountains, lakes, reefs, volcanoes, and cities.

Back from the Red Centre

The Light Collective has just completed another photography workshop in the Red Centre of Australia, including Uluru, Kata Tujta, Kings Canyon and the West Mac Donnell Ranges.

Often as photographers we have to work really hard for our images, however every now and then mother nature will give us a special gift. Christmas came early in the red centre and we must be the nice kids, day after day mother nature turned up with gift after gift.

Retouching Ice and Snow: Skógafoss Waterfall

There is a technique that I frequently use when I am editing images that have a lot of ice and snow.

This consists of applying a combination of what I called Auto Curves (Photoshop), the Detail Extractor tool of Nik Software together with the Apply Image tool of Photoshop. This technique works really well and can make your image pop out of the screen…

| | DJI Phantom - A great little drone

DJI Phantom - A great little drone

January this year I bought a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone to take to Iceland and Norway withAdam Williams and Luke Austin (The Light Collective). I had looked at different brands and models and I decided to buy the DJI Phantom 3 pro, mainly because it portability and its price. This drone is light, small and very easy to set up and fly. It is the perfect drone for beginners and at about $AU1,399 it is a great tool to complement anyone’s camera gear…

TLC First Photography Workshop

The Light Collective First Photography Workshop

In February this year, three of the five members of The Light Collective (Luke Austin, Adam Williams and myself) went on an adventure above the arctic circle to capture images of Iceland and Lofoten (Norway) with 14 intrepid participants.

We are very happy as these were the first photography workshops organised by The Light Collective and they both were a great success. We had terrific weather, saw a few amazing auroras, and captured some great images.
