  • The Best Photo Spots (from Dusk til Dawn) on Hamilton Island

    October 21, 2014

    The names of Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays are synonymous with tropical relaxation. Every year, hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers make their way to this chain of islands — possibly the most gorgeous along the entire Queensland coast — so they can kick back with a cocktail under the palms and listen to the tinkling…

  • Whale Watching (With a Side of Swimming) on the Sunshine Coast

    October 15, 2014

    For years, going diving with humpback whales has been on my bucket list. Ever since I first saw Darren Jew’s exceptional underwater captures and realised that diving with these giants of the sea was a possibility — in a way that does not harass them — I’ve been enchanted by the idea. Unfortunately, there were…

  • Helicoptering Over Paradise With Hamilton Island Air

    October 8, 2014

    “Victor Tango Foxtrot to Hamilton Island.”  “Hamilton Island to Victor Tango Foxtrot. Weather is fine, 22 degrees…” The tinny voices of the pilot — who seemed so far away despite sitting right next to me — and the air traffic controller echoed in my ears. The deafening whirr of the helicopter’s blades provided a background…

  • Seaside Artistry at the Swell Sculpture Festival

    October 3, 2014

    Currumbin Beach is one of my favourite spots on the Gold Coast. It’s a bit further away from the craziness that is Surfer’s Paradise and it’s got an awesome, laid-back vibe to it. Plus, Elephant Rock at the beach’s northern end provides endless photographic opportunities no matter what time of day, so it’s a spot…

  • The Liberation of Nijmegen: A Tale of Two Men

    September 30, 2014

    It’s always said that there are two sides to every story. In the small city of Nijmegen, near the Dutch border with Germany, I learned that no story can be so black-and-white as that. When a story involves something as awful as war, each story has so many sides, so many shades of grey that…

  • Win an Exclusive (Metallic or Canvas) Print! [CLOSED]

    September 25, 2014

    As a photographer, I spend quite a bit of my life around photos as I compose them, review them, process them, and post them. One thing I don’t do nearly as often as I should, though, is print them. Occasionally I get into the darkroom and process some black and white film photos, but the…
