This is an install we did for Drifters Cafe and Bar, part of the YHA backpackers in Brisbane. If you traveling through Brisbane Drifters Cafe is a great place for a good feed and a beer or two.

The first image is Redwood Forest 250cm x 83cm, 6 panel split Canvas panorama.

The second images is 75 Mile Beach Sunrise, 120cm x 40cm Canvas.


Washed Up

One of the many thing that washed up on the coast around Sandgate, Qld after the Brisbane Floods. This is a 3 image stitch with the 5d Mk2 and the 24mm TSE 3.5L II with 11mm of shift and 1mm of tilt.

Last Light Devonport

This image was captured on the same evening as my previous post Lighthouse Point, Devonport, Tasmania.

Stradbroke Island Elements

A set I put together from North Stradbroke Island.

Ben Messina Large Canvas Prints

I thought I would show some of the custom work that we do. These 4 canvas panoramas each measure  175cm x 70cm, they have been cropped into a chunky format to fit exactly into recesses that our customer supplied the dimensions of and were printed and stretched by us in house. The images are from the left Rainforest Arch(Fuji GX 6×17), Boulders Beach(Fuji GX6x17), Queen Mary Falls(Fuji GX 6×17) and Palm Cove(5d M2 Stitched Image). I’ll post some images of these installed in our customer’s house at a later date.

Crystal Falls II

Another image of Crystal Falls, Dorrigo NP.

Pandanni Garden

Another image from Cradle Mountain, at the start of the Overland Track.

Coastal Colours

Another recent sunrise from Woody Point, Qld. Single frame on the 5d Mk 2 with the 70-200 2.8L.


Woody Point Sunrise

Here’s an image I shot this morning, I got a new lens yesterday the Canon TS-E 24mm 3.5L II Tilt/Shift lens, so I was keen to get out and see how good it is. This is a 3 image vertical stitch using 11mm of shift on the 5D Mk 2.

North Stradbroke Island Sunset

One of the most intense sunsets I’ve seen in a while, North Straddie is a great place, lots of diverse landscapes to photograph.
