Photographic Workshop Adventure into Bhutan…December 2019

I am not long back from a totally awesome adventure in the Eastern Himalayas! Bhutan is an amazing and delightful destination and seems to be more beautiful and alluring each time you re-visit. Ewen Bell (ewen@ewenbell.com) and myself led a wonderful group of participants from the West side of the mountainous country to the East side and included partaking in and observing the most delightful rural festivals that you could possibly imagine. The images here are just a fraction of what we shot and our group were never short of photographic locations and subject material. I feel that they will be editing for months!

Join us this year!  Consider booking now as Ewen and I have another awesome adventure waiting for those lucky few who will travel with us in late November!

Dates for the 2020 Bhutan workshop are: November 21st to December 6th

Antarctic Peninsular November – December 2019

An amazing odyssey left me spellbound on a recent 16 day cruise to the Antarctic Peninsular! The weather was mostly fine and not too cold and remarkably, we could land on zodiacs twice a day at wild and remote locations and spend hours observing the awesome wildlife and raw nature. An experience that has left me marvelling at our beautiful planet once again! Please enjoy the few images I have had the chance to edit so far. Photographs are actually a poor substitute for the visual wonderment of being there!

South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: November 2019

Had the privilege of experiencing first hand the remarkable group of Island known as South Georgia last month for three days! A fair amount of clear weather and following seas meant we could make smooth landings in zodiac’s without too much swell. This is an exceptionally remote, wild and ruggedly beautiful part of our earth… and a place to experience nature first hand. In fact, you literally feel that you are participating in a wild nature documentary, not just as an observer, but actually being right in there! These images are just a fraction of what I shot and I hope this post can partly convey just a tiny amount of the wonderment of being there. Places visited and landings made include, Saisbury Plains, Gold Harbour, Right Whale Bay, St. Andrews Bay, Grytviken, Stromness and the awesome Drygalsky Fjord with the three glaciers.

Photographic Foray on the NSW South Coast October 2019

On Assignment for the past couple of weeks with some time to relax and explore some old favourite locations and also to discover some new locations I have not seen before. The Southern coastline of NSW is remarkable and extremely scenic. It’s a place to re-juvenate and to revel in! Photographically, it is awesome!  Most days the light at some point was beautiful and worth getting the camera out for some serious photography… please enjoy this small collection of images I have selected from the many I shot!
