    Love Photography

    I actually went to school for photography back when we used cameras with film and f-stops!  I think Nature photography is my favorite form of art.  There is so much beauty to capture in the world, from landscapes to animals, to close-ups of flowers and bugs.  I...

    Solid Tripods Are Worth It

    Don't Forget The Water

    In one of my earlier trips in the Northern Territory (Australia) I carefully loaded myself up with what I thought was a light kit. A small back-pack, waist pack, camera gear, water...and hiked in. Part of the way in I realised I was losing water faster than I could drink it- the...

    Great Day

    Amongst The Waterfalls Of The Waitakeres

    In the chill of the NZ winter, a good day brings a clearness to the air that makes waterfall photography enrapturing. It's just a matter of dressing up warm, packing the right camera gear, and being prepared to hike the distances. "Three Steps"
