LIGHT ON THE LAND

I’ve been working on an exciting new project for the last few months……My first book! It’s called Light on the Land and has 100 of my favorite and most popular images. I’ve done the design and layout myself with the help of Renee Creative from the Sunshine Coast. I’ve gone down the self-publishing route so that I have complete control over the whole process, which also means it’s being printed 100% in Australia. It’s going to print this week and should be ready for sale towards the end of next month. With the book so close I’ve decided to offer my customers, blog and facebook followers a special pre-release offer. If you order your copy of Light on the Land for $46.00 inc delivery to anywhere in Australia before the 15th of July, I’m going to include a 30cm x 22cm signed, unframed fine art print valued at $125.00 at no extra cost (five prints to choose from). Please follow the link below to my website to get your copy and choose your free print. Thanks in advance for your support.

Eye of the Storm | Lake Mungo

I recently returned from an almost 5000km road trip through western Queensland, western NSW and almost to the Victorian border and then back up the coast. Here’s an image from western NSW as a storm cell is about to move through, we were lashed with crazy winds and sand blasting at us. Many more images to come.

Looking up Palm Valley

Recently I was approached about shooting landscapes of a 150 acre property west of Maleny. I don’t normally do commissioned work as the galleries keep us busy enough:-) I’m glad I took on this project though, as this place is truly amazing. Here’s an image from a spot on the property called Palm Valley. I’ve just framed this one up for my Maleny gallery it looks great! Check out my website and my facebook page for more new images.
