I’ve been photographing a lot of cows recently! Mostly dairy cows. In fact I was on my way home from a dairy shoot when I neared Craig Macfarlane’s farm and decided to take a quick detour and perhaps capture a few more images of this herd of cattle before they go to their new home!… Read More

Gehla has been mentored by local farmer Beesie Stone over the years… Read More
I attended an informative lighting workshop this weekend that had a wedding theme to it. Doing these workshops are of incredible value and there is always something new to learn despite wedding photography not being my subject. Other than a heap of helpful information I got from this workshop, I also got confirmation that the… Read More

There is no day for a sleep-in during Autumn for me! The morning light and colour around this time of year is incredible! Soon after I had captured some of that beautiful morning light, I got caught up in a herd of cattle being moved to another field! So I left the landscape and opted… Read More
Murray Roberts is an old friend of mine. A few years ago, he stepped out of the rat race in pursuit of following his passion of Bladesmithing. As a young boy he’d watched and learned from his father who had spent long hours in the workshop handcrafting knives. 30 years later, he decided to take… Read More
