    Point Arkwright Seascapes

    I got in the car and began my trip to Point Arkwright, QLD. I was a little concerned that I was wasting my time because the wind had picked up - in a pretty big way. When it comes to timed exposures the idea is to keep the camera as still as possible. The camera shaking while the shutter's open isn't ideal and can result in blurred images. I figured that I could use a large sandbag if the weather got too wild and hopefully I could anchor the camera down enough.

    Half way up the coast though I hit traffic. I've never driven up there in the afternoon on a weekday and I had no idea how much things slow down. The GPS was telling me that I'd arrive at 4:30pm (30 minutes before a 5pm sunset), but the traffic had another idea. I kept saying to myself, "Even if I land one great image it'll be worth it!" 

    Thankfully I arrived at 4:50pm and there was still enough light for about 30 minutes of photography and the chance to capture a few frames. It wasn't like my usual nature shoot though. I didn't have any time to stop and think about my day to day life. Usually I'll set the camera up and while it's exposing I'll ponder, but I was just too busy trying to keep the camera stable to ensure sharp images. It's all completely worth it though cause the results really pleased me!

    I've been talking about creating this website for my nature photography for a really long time, and I'm very happy to announce realise that it's finally up and running!

    If you're visiting my site, then it's no surprise that you're one of the first. Thank you! Thank you for supporting me! It means a great deal. 

    As the weeks and months unfold, this site will become more and more comprehensive. I will be traveling as much as I can between photographing weddings with the goal of creating a beautiful folio filled with some of the amazing locations that surround me. I hope you'll drop by from time to time and check out my collection as it grows.

    If you find order my prints or mounts for your home please know that it will make me feel very honoured! A personal acknowledgement like that is so rewarding, and it's the reason I get up and work everyday. I create the images I do with the hope that they will speak to others. When someone decides to hang my work on their walls I feel like I've been heard, and for that I will always be grateful! 

    I sincerely hope you like my work and drop by every now and again to check out my growing collection. If you think your friends might like my nature photography, please click the button to tell them about what I do. Thank you again for your support. It means so much to me and I hope you enjoy your stay!
