Quick Picks – featuring British accents, long exposures, and voyeuristic portraiture

Winter has hit Brisbane full force this week with bitingly cold winds complemented by some lovely drizzly rain. So it’s been perfect weather to snuggle on the sofa and lose myself on the web. There’s no link between this week’s quick pick of internet finds, other than that they all captured my imagination. As usual, […]

City Fragments – Melbourne

City Fragments – Melbourne

A few weeks ago we packed our bags and left sunny Brisbane for a long weekend in Melbourne. The sale airfares we had meant our baggage allowance was limited to hand luggage, which forced us to be selective about the camera kit we took. While I’ve moved away from the old days of wanting to carry […]

The author of today’s post is Tess, a friend, co-conspirator, and resident of Melbourne, Australia. According to Tourism Victoria, Melbourne is a city of endless possibilities, so what better location from […]

Barek Art Timelapse

One of the really exciting things about the move away from full-time professional photography has been the way it’s prompted me to plan and create things without thinking about how I might be able to use them to encourage bookings. Now I’m doing work purely because I want to, which is liberating. It’s also encouraging […]

Look, Quick Picks is back! It’s now shorter, and possibly a little sweeter, but still full of my latest internet finds. And as always, good things come in threes…

A Lost World

A Lost World

One Sunday morning earlier this year we decided that a road trip was in order. So we pulled out our map and started planning. As soon as I saw the words “Lost World” I knew it was where we would end up. It’s a valley situated behind the Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast […]

A few months have passed since I posted about our intention to step back from the world of wedding photography, and wind down that side of our business. Those few months have been a time of transition. I’ve produced and delivered the last of our clients’ albums. I’ve spent time overseas. I’ve continued to separate out […]

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

The New Range of High End Compact Cameras

The New Range of High End Compact Cameras

I’m often surprised by how many people I see taking holiday pictures on large, expensive SLRs. When you look at it these cameras are pretty bulky to carry around, and they’re not cheap to buy in the first place, so why do so many people choose them over the alternatives?
