  • Black Tree

    from $520.00

    Edition #100
    Next Available # 3/ 100

    While traveling to Broome I saw this little black tree.
    I couldn’t resist the loneliness of this tree within the turbulent stormy landscape.
    I wished to portray the tree as ones self, standing strong against all adversity .
    After 12 years of driving the same road at least seven times I've never been able to find the Black Tree again even though it was within two meters of the road

    Next Available # 5/200

    I was at Cape Naturalist just before midday with the intention of shooting Sugarloaf Rock. It was a bright and sunny summer’s day. Usually not the ideal conditions for photography, but due to the use of a R (25A) red filter, combined with Ilford HP5 film stock and considerable printing down in the dark room, I knew the tones and textures of this particular prehistoric rock formation could be printed as if it was lit by a soft light.
    Camera: Hasselblad. Lens: 50mm lens. Exposure: 125th of a second shutter speed lens aperture F11. Filter: R (25A) red filter.

    At the time of taking this shot a Japanese Bride was being photographed in front of the church while a coach was unloading tourists,with careful planning for angle of view I managed to avoid them all.

  • Davy Jones Last Sunset

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    While going to get something for tea I could see there was a opportunity to shoot a great sunset, I set up late pushed for time down at north beach, I chose a small rock to be the fore ground hero with the aperture set to 22's iso to 100 gave a one second shutter speed to allow the water to weave its magic around my hero. After enjoying the sunset and shoot it was time to down load the files, there were many good shots to choose from but this one with the eerie figure that looks like Davy Jones being drawn in to a whirlpool and beckoning me to follow him that stood out. If you look to the left of the figure there is a resemblance of the octopus creature the way he was depicted in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies to the right looks like a hand rising up out of the water beckoning one to follow into the whirlpool.

    While on a well deserved break in New York after shooting a wedding in Spain I was drawn to the twin towers with a eerie sense, that I must portray these two magnificent buildings in there best light not knowing that in two months time they would be gone forever. This shot is very special to me with the little church silhouetted against the world’s tallest buildings and the street sign depicting liberty brought all the elements together beautifully.

    I took this shot in the Bungle Bungles I loved the natural curve from bottom right to top left of the picture the one solitaire palm tree in the middle of the shot I estimated it must be about 60 foot high so that would give you an idea to how big the rock face was, once polarized the rock face began to sparkle the sky turned rich blue.

  • Poles Apart

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    I love the way the poles and lines frame this image and the tonal range is just stunning.
    In Māori legend, Taranaki is a mountain being that lived peacefully for many centuries in the centre of New Zealand's North Island with three other mountains, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu.
    Nearby stood Mount Pihanga. Covered in a cloak of deep green forest she presented a stunning sight and all the mountain gods were in love with her.
    Taranaki dared to make advances to Pihanga and was reproached by Tongariro and a mighty battle ensued between them. The earth shook and the sky became dark as the mountains belched forth their anger.
    When the battle ended the lovely Pihanga stood close by Tongariro's side. Taranaki, wild with grief and jealously, angrily wrenched his roots from the ground and left the other mountains.
    Weeping, he plunged towards the setting sun, gouging out a deep wide trench. When he reached the sea he turned north and stumbled up the coast. As he slept that night the Pouakai Ranges snared and trapped Taranaki in the place he now rests.
    The next day a stream of clear water sprang from the side of Tongariro. It flowed down the deep scar Taranaki had left on his journey to the coast to form the Whanganui River. There are those who say that Taranaki is silently brooding and will one day try to return inland again to fight Tongariro. Quote from Wikipedia Mount Taranaki legend
    That makes the title "Poles Apart" even more apt and could explain from a photographers observations that when you photograph this mountain from a distance with longer lenses it always has a glow around the base of about 1/3rd like its getting up to go.
    I'll leave that with you to work out.

The two trees in this image, dwarfed by the on coming storm and lit by a single ray of light, entangled and entwined around each other as lovers, moulded into the perfect aesthetic shape by the prevailing winds. What were the chances that two seeds would come so close to each other on this barren hill then grow and survive then die together they are truly Soul Mates.

So I grabbed my Sister as a camera assistant and went to the paddock where my father and brother in law were harvesting wheat. I started taking shots of the wheat with Susan holding the flashgun. I lit the subject with a warm gel and used a graduated grey filter to darken the bottom of the photograph. This was not an easy shot to take considering the wind was blowing about 45 knots and I was shooting in very low light while hand holding a hasselblad camera.
    This shot is of a super cell thunderstorm system and the closest thing that you will get to in this country to a Tornado it was published both here and in USA.
