Behind the Scenes of Chilby Photography

One of the things I love about photography is being out in nature in some unique and very beautiful places. I love the hiking, climbing and exploring aspect of it. Photography has taken me to many beautiful places across Australia, New Zealand and Europe, some extremely remote some not so much but all in all it opens your eyes to the world. If you click on the photo to the right it will take you to some of the photos from along the way. If you click HERE it will take you to the About Us page.

Qantas 747 landing at Albion Park airport!

Today was an historic day for Qantas and the Illawarra with the retiring Flying Kangaroo making its last descent over Wollongong and then into Albion Park regional airport. The Qantas VH-OJA  is now retired and on public display at the Historical Restoration Society (HARS) hanger. It was gifted to HARS by Qantas as this aircraft was too rich in Australian aviation history to destroy. In 1989 this 747 became the first in the world to fly non-stop from Sydney to London in 20 hours. This is the first ever 747 aircraft to fly into the Illawarra. It took 11 mins from Sydney.

Printed and Designed in Wollongong for Wollongong.

Get your Wollongong and Shellharbour t-shirts in time for Christmas by clicking on the photo to the right. It's a great gift idea for locals and tourists alike.

90% of what Chilby Photography produces is made right here in the Illawarra with a 10% being produced in Sydney. You can rest assured your money is staying put right here in the Illawarra if you shop with Chilby Photography. Shop local and support your local community and yourself. The shirts were designed by 121 Creative Wollongong and you can see them modeling my shirts in the photo. If you need something designed I highly recommend popping in and seeing Stephen at 288 Keira Street, Wollongong. It's very hard to find a good business that will work with you and do the job you want and I found 121 Creative excellent to deal with.
