'Tame The Rugged'

This is the waterfall and pool directly above the famous Spa Pool, in Hammersley Gorge in Karijini National Park. The rocks in this particular gorge I found to be unique in the park. They are sharp and have a very different colour. They have a blue tone to them which is far different to the rich reds of other parts of the park. This gorge is simply stunning. These little waterfalls have created smooth natural spas within this rugged rocky gorge and they look beautiful!

'Heaven's Light'
Photographing the wonders of Karijini National Park had been a dream of mine for many years. This park located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia really is something special. The park is filled with stunning gorges with hikes to suit different ability levels. The rich red rocks of the region are beautiful and have been carved into stunning gorges, with waterfalls, natural swimming pools and is filled with stunning reflected light on clear mornings/afternoons. It was that gorgeous warm reflected morning light I was becoming desperate for after 4 days of flat gray skies and heavy rain. The light to make the shot simply wasn't available. I had to wait it out and continue to hope that on at least one morning while I was there I would walk outside at 5am to see clear skies. After 4 days it looked promising. Although at 5:30am it was still quite cloudy, by sunrise it was clearing. Hancock is a spectacular gorge and a highlight in my eyes. A steep and rocky decent in, beautiful long pools that I waded through with my camera gear in my dry bag, a spider walk down a small waterfall and then passing the beautiful Kermit's Pool all before reaching this epic scene. This waterfall was rushing after the recent rain and the reflected light from the above gorge walls was filling the gorge with a beautiful glowing light. I was so thrilled that I got photograph this scene in all its glory! This was an amazing morning!

'Shape The Land'

Small streams of water continue to shape the epic landscape that is found in Karijini National park. Part of Western Australia's Pilbara region, the parks ancient rock formations continue to be altered by the water that fills it stunning gorges. This photograph captures reflections of warm evening light reflecting off the above gorge walls as the water swirls its way across this rocky landscape. What a spectacular place!

I am incredibly proud to announce 'CHASING LIGHT'. It is my very first exhibition which had a very fun and successful opening night with great attendance.
If you are in Perth, be sure to stop through Gallery 360 to view a collection of my work on display during March while I am their Feature Artist!
I am incredibly grateful to Gallery 360 for asking me to do this and for putting on a better opening night than I could have asked for and a month of a beautiful display!

'To Be Free'
Frenchmans Peak was certainly on my list of locations to photograph and I had a rough composition idea in mind. I scouted out this composition earlier in the day and was stoked to have found it. I also got some stunning light to compliment the scene. Nice soft clouds and warm light hitting the peak and filling the slight valley between it and myself. It really was stunning. What was a little unnerving about this shoot was just as I got to this spot and had to walk into the shrubs, I had seen a snake slither into them too... Never what you want to see. Frenchmans Peak also has a natural arch at its peak, which can be seen in this photograph, that gives great views of Cape Le Grande National Park and its beautiful beaches.

'Waves Gone By'

I photographed Wave Rock twice on an overnight visit to the iconic location as part of a stop over during a road trip further south. I woke up early and only just in time for sunrise. I looked out of my tent and the sky was lighting up. I got up, grabbed my gear, and started running to the Wave. Waking up and immediately running can certainly make you feel a bit odd. I framed up the shot and managed to capture the stunning and very intense sunrise colours. So stoked to have been lucky enough to capture this famous West Australian location under great light on the only morning I had there. This was certainly a great start to the trip. Wave Rock is 15 meters tall and 110 meters long. It was formed by weathering and water erosion and the rock has been dated back 2700 million years. Water running down the rock dissolves minerals which has added to the colour and contrasts in the stone.

'Gracious'
Kalbarri National Park, WA

I had photographed this tree in Kalbarri National Park on a visit earlier in the year. The sun however was not lined like it was on this trip in late spring. Not long after sunrise I made my way down into one of the spectacular gorges in the park and this tree was putting on a show. The morning light was just catching the top of the tree as it leaked into this narrow section. The warm light was stunning however shooting it took a bit of waiting for any slight breeze to fade to ensure the tree was sharp.

We are very spoiled here in Western Australia!

'Cherish These Moments'
Kalbarri, Western Australia

I had waited the better part of a year to photograph Nature's Window in Kalbarri National Park. I needed the right time of year so the sunrise would line up with the view through the window, overlooking the Murchison River as it curves it's way around the Z-Bend. The first sunrise didn't yield any results with not a cloud to be seen. However when I woke up at 4am to see some clouds out to the east I started to get excited. As I was driving over the corrugated dirt road into the park I could see the colours starting to appear at first light. At this point I was confident I might be about to witness something special. I composed my shot and didn't have to wait long for the scene to erupt in colour! One of the best sunrises I have seen in a long time and I couldn't have been more thrilled to be at a place to spectacular with my camera equipment. The two days prior had been incredibly windy. This morning however there wasn't a breathe of wind, leaving the trees in the gorge completely still. I am thrilled to have got conditions far better than I could have even asked for! Nature's Window and the rest of Kalbarri is just spectacular. While capturing this photograph I could see two swans in the river and had already seen a couple of Kangaroos.
