A beautiful place called Kiama!

We are very lucky here in the Illawarra to be surrounded by such beautiful landscapes. Kiama is a region in the south of the Illawarra between the mountains and the sea. It has a little bit of everything from a busy village, beautiful beaches, unique rock formations, rolling green valleys, waterfalls and luscious rainforests. If you click on the photo to the right it will showcase some of my photos of the region that are true to what this area really is and are taken by an Illawarra local.

Did You Know ...

Every single photograph by Chilby Photography has had very little processing done to it on Photoshop, and that's what makes my images a little different and unique. I don't use HDR, I don't stitch images and I don't use multiple layers to edit. All photos are single layer images, very close to what comes straight off the camera with minimal tweaking done to the shot afterwards. I believe this  produces a photograph true to nature or the environment that it was taken in. I can proudly 100% guarantee that all images are one single shot. Click on the photo to the right to view some of my photographs from around Australia.

I Love Waterfalls!

Waterfalls have been one of my favourite subjects since I started photography and even before that. I have spent endless hours hiking to remote waterfalls and have been doing this since about the age of 10. I love being out in the wilderness and exploring new places. I have found many unnamed waterfalls over the years but have put a lot of effort into hiking long distances to find them. I have put together this gallery with some of the waterfalls from around the country. Click on the photo to the right to check it out.

Abstract Art...

Every now and then I try and take photographs that are a little bit different from the usual and create an abstract look to the shot by slowing panning my camera as I take it. I like do this type of shot in the forest particularly if it is foggy or down a lonely lane lined with tall trees. I hope to continually populate this gallery with more photos over the remainder of the year.

Chasing Waterfalls.

With all the heavy rain over the past month I have spent a lot of time chasing Waterfalls. Which is my favourite type of photography. I have spent many hours hiking and mountain biking to over 20 remote waterfalls to take advantage of the conditions. Very soon I will be introducing all the new waterfall shots to The photo to the right was taken from the base of Gerringong Falls and is one of the waterfalls I most enjoy visiting.

Camping in the Deau National Park!

I recently spent a few nights camping in the Deua National Park with Paul Dickson from Nature Engagement Tours aiming to capture the beauty of this remote wilderness.
