Worked at I have been taking photographs professionally for over 20 years. In that time I have had to evolve with every advance in technology and creative technique. It is such an exciting and challenging time to be in the industry. The advent of digital has revolutionised photography as an art form. It has also bought photography and image manipulation to the masses. Every second person now takes photographs and many are trying their hand at creating a living from their hobbies. Digital in some ways made it easier to be a “photographer”, but it still takes a certain level of skill and understanding to truly master the craft. I cut my teeth on film and lived for years in a darkened room, mixing chemicals, printing my own prints and framing them. When I think of where I began, look at where I am now and beyond to the future I am amazed at how far I have come and how far there is still left to go. Every month someone develops an new idea or approach that refines photography just that little bit more. It is these refinements that keep it exciting for me. Photography comes second to my family, I place it that highly. Sometimes it can be frustrating, sometimes depressing, but it is always rewarding if you work hard and want to succeed.

Hay bales wouldn't last too long in Iceland so they are all wrapped up to survive the winter. Talking to a farmer who let us shoot his old sheds, the sheep are kept indoors for 7 months of the year to survive the winter. Not much of a life poor buggers. Sigma DP1 Quatt

One from the ice cave we went into last week. It was just amazing to look through it. It was very three dimensional.

Dropped a bit of magenta out of this one. Previous edit was done at 3am so I was a little tired! This looks better but could probably go more.

Ahhh Iceland, what can I say about you? You are freeking awesome. This a little place called fghiefewnvvnjnfoss just the other side of klnfjgnskje jssjvsfoss and up the road from svnjsnvjksskuls. I mean really, is anyone ever going to remember the names of these places. I have decided all the titles of my photos will be "Iceland" 
We had some awesome weather today. The late arvo glow went on, and on, and on. I was expecting it to be all over in 15mins like in Australia. So nice knowing you can take a shot, make a sandwich, take a shot, do your washing, take a shot, grab a hot bath, take a shot, read War and Peace and still have time in the arvo to take another shot. Man this is shooting!

The rain and dark sky has come and looks as though it wants to make Dunsborough it's home.
Time to daydream of warm bright days.

Well 12 days in Iceland officially finished today when we flew out into gale force winds. Funny thing is it was one of the smoothest flights. 
It was an amazing time and we had one of the best groups ever I have had the pleasure of touring with. Lots of great images and lots of laughs. I wanted to thank you all for trusting Antony and I to show you a good time. Lets do it again! Craig Mcgowan, you need to get Facebook buddy!!! 
Iceland is a fantastic place, challenging at times, spectacular mostly and it has free wifi everywhere, oh we loved the free wifi. 
Safe travels home everyone. — with Sheldon Pettit, Graeme Ditterich, Kath Salier, Neil Burton, Niall Chang, Wendy Morris, Antony Spencer, Robert Salisbury, Barbara Wilk, Alan Mathieson and Peter Hooymans.

two days ago we were in a town called Myvatn, (pronounced Meeva), go figure, and it is in one of the volcanic parts of the country. If this puppy goes off this may be my last post! Phase One IQ280, Schneider 80mm

Iceland number nine, also known as sdfsjvjkbvfoss. Go figure! Reflections, tick, Mountains, tick. Sky, oh well you can't change the weather! Antony Spencer will be proud of me for keeping the original sky. The only reason is it is 1.50am and I must go to sleep!

You can sleep on the plane back to Australia. I remember being in Iceland a couple years ago and with the auroras, ended up being very much sleep deprived.

great photo and "bland" sky works well in this case
