Photographs made since 2008 after changing to digital capture. This gallery features some of my favourite locations including, Cradle Mountain, Freycinet National Park, Mount Wellington, Bay of Fires, Great Western Tiers, Mount Field and Douglas Apsley National Parks.
I became serious about digital capture after Canon introduced a full frame D SLR. I love the freedom and ease of using digital capture, particularly after using and carrying large format cameras for many years. I now have unprecedented control over the colours and tonal range of my images.
Large Format Film 1984-2008
I became very passionate about landscape photography in the early eighty’s when I purchased a Pentax 6x7cm camera. In 1987 I moved up to large format 4x5” for all of my work. During this time I solo walked into many Tasmanian wilderness locations including:
The Western Arthur Range, Walls of Jerusalem, Reynolds Falls, Southern Ranges, Du Cane Range, Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park, Lake Rhona, Federation Peak, South Coast Track, Ketchem Bay, Cape Hauy, Hartz Mountains, Mt Anne, Black Bluff, Cape Raoul, Frenchmans Cap, Ben Lomond, The Great Western Tiers, Freycinet Peninsula, Mt Olympus, Mt Murchison, Tyndall Range, Mt Bobs, Mt Gell, Traveller Range, Cathedral Mountain, Eldon Bluff, Mt Field National Park, Douglas Apsley National Park and Bishop & Clerk on Maria Island.
Most of my best images where made with my 4x5 Linhof Technica. This clever folding camera was made in 1957 by some very perfection orientated Germans who made cameras that would last a lifetime. I still have this camera today.

High Dynamic Range
I’ve been a commercial and landscape photographer most of my working life and photographed wide ranging subjects over many years. But like many of my peers I get stuck in a rut occasionally; I need fresh visual stimulation to get me cranked up again. And I found it in HDR (High Dynamic Range).
