I first picked up a camera at age 10. Around this time I learnt to handprint in my father’s black and white darkroom. Photography has always been a passion in my life. I went full time at the age of 18 mostly concentrating on commercial and fashion photography. In 2004 I opened my first gallery in Cairns. in 2005, I went full time with my landscape photography, opening my second gallery in Brisbane City. Currently my gallery and picture framing shop is located at Shop 6, Fifth Avenue. Sandgate. About 35 minutes north of the Brisbane CBD.

    Dear Mr. Messina:
    I’m a photographer living in the NYC area, and am very interested in purchasing a fujifilm GX6x17cm large format camera. If you know of anyone, either personal, or in retail in New York City, I’d appreciate that information.

  3. Very nice landscape pictures, beautiful craft. Congrats. Do you use ND grad filters in your work, or did you stop when you switched to the D800e? I realized that my Lee kit now stays so often home, because I don’t need it anymore. Just wanted to hear how it affects your work, thanks.
