Photo of the Week: The Ghosts of Tourists Past

On Friday night, I was stoked that I finally had an evening in Sydney with absolutely nothing planned. On every previous trip to the city, I’ve been with people or otherwise have had plans that have stopped me from going out with a camera and a tripod. That’s meant that I’ve never gotten the photos…

Photo Essay: An Evening of Burning Steel Wool

In the early part of this year, I took hardly any photos at all because it was very difficult to hold a camera and a set of crutches at the same time. Since I’ve been off the crutches, I’ve taken quite a few photos, but last Tuesday was only the second time (the first being…

Photo Essay: Special Effects at the Body Art Carnivale

You may have seen already that I was an official photographer at the Australian Body Art Carnivale that was held in Eumundi last month. Over the course of two days, I saw many incredibly talented artists turn normal people into works of art. It was amazing to watch the transformation in just a few short…

The Dangers of Photo Contests

While browsing online, you stumble across a photo contest. The prizes draw you in — a safari trip to South Africa, a brand-new, top-of-the-line dSLR, $5000 cash. All you have to do is enter a photo that roughly matches the categories outlined in the contest brief (and occasionally, pay an entry fee). Why wouldn’t you…

Photo of the Week: Miami Surf…on the Gold Coast

Last weekend, Brisbane’s Travel Massive took a road trip down to the Gold Coast for a Friday night meetup. We had a great turnout, with over 60 people showing up to the Surfers Paradise Hilton for a fun night out. Because we were expecting a late night, I stayed with the awesome Kirsty rather than driving back…

Photo Essay: Facepainting at the Body Art Carnivale

The second day of the Australian Body Art Carnivale had vastly differing categories sharing the painting tent: face painting and special effects. The face painters were allowed to paint intricate artworks down to the shoulders of their models, while the special effects artists were allowed to do pretty much anything they wanted, even creating a…

Photo Essay: The Australian Body Art Carnivale

Please note that this post does contain photos of topless girls, so it may not be ideal to browse through during work time. I’d like to think they’re tasteful photos though. Last weekend, artists from around Australia descended on Eumundi to take part in the annual Australian Body Art Carnivale. I’ve never seen an event…

Photo of the Week: Quokka Quokka

This little guy is a quokka, a marsupial that can only be found on Western Australia’s Rottnest Island (and in very small areas of the Western Australian mainland). I personally think he looks a little bit like a combination of a wombat and a wallaby — he’s got the body of a wallaby and the…

5 Fantastic South Island Day Hike Views

New Zealand is one of the most naturally stunning places I’ve ever been to, especially because it has so many varied landscapes crammed into such a small area. Within a few hours, you can go from the beach to a rainforest…that has a glacier in the middle of it. It seems like there is a…

Photo of the Week: Lights in the North (But Not the Northern Lights)

  I was hoping to be able to feature some photos of the northern lights this week, but unfortunately I didn’t get any! The weather didn’t want to play nice when I was in Porjus, Sweden, and this was the least cloudy night we had (it clouded right back up again about 30 minutes after…
