My Photography takes me to places that have the most beautiful light and scenery. this could be up in the High Country of the Victorian Alps, down in Tasmania on one of my numerous trips or overseas like the North American continent, a place that has particularly stunning scenery and grand Vistas. Whether I travel alone or sometimes with my son-in-law Matthew Bennett, and even on Occasion with friends like Shelton Muller, the emphasis is always on enjoying the great outdoors, relishing the magnificent light and bringing home stunning Pictures to share with others. Photography is one of lifes great pastimes, which quickly turns to passion and obsession! The photograph taken by my good friend Shelton Muller is of me enjoying some stunning late afternoon light up in Victoria’s High Country.
On a very wet and cold day in November I worked around the Hut trying to find an image that matched my pre-visualized concept of this Historic old building. I only had slide film in my xpan so I just shot with this emulsion knowing that I could work some magic in photoshop once I had scanned the image at home. A little dodging and burning and a some lovely sepia toning has produced an image that has to date won several International awards, including two Gold and Three Silver medals.
