An Old Photo still looks good!

Today I delivered this 24x36 Inch framed print of Bulli Ocean Pool, and took this photo out the front of the customers home as I thought the frame that the customer picked suited the photo nicely. This photo is one of the oldest on my website and is one of the few remaining from my previous website. The customer was very happy.

Chilby meets Liverpool Legends!

An early morning photo shoot in Adelaide paid off when I run into Liverpool footballing legends Didi Hamaan, Craig Johnston, Ian Rush and Luis Garcia.

You'll Never Walk Alone...

I was out and about early in Adelaide for a photo shoot and happened to bump into some former Liverpool Footballing super stars. I have been a massive Liverpool Football supporter since I was very young and was delighted to meet Liverpool legends, Ian Rush, Craig Johnston, Luis Garcia and Didi Hamaan on Glenelg Jetty. After getting this photo to the right with Luis Garcia and Ian Rush, I ran about 4km to the car to get my Liverpool shirt and scarf so that I could get a photo in my Liverpool gear with the four guys. My all time favourite player Robbie Fowler was meant to be with these guys but got called away to an event. I was very happy to get this shot and it certainly brightened my trip. To see more photos with the Liverpool legends click on the photo to the right to visit my behind the scenes section.

A trip to Adelaide, South Australia!

I recently spent a week in Adelaide, South Australia on a photography trip to a part of Australia that I had not been to before. I took over 1500 photos of Adelaide and its surrounds. The trip started off terribly, the morning of my flight NSW received the biggest dump of snow in 70 years and I missed it. I then slipped, dropped and smashed my most expensive glass Lee Filter on my first shoot in the state, which left me filter less for the trip and then I found a parking fine on my car at Glenelg for parking in an out of bounds street that was full of cars and with no signage and it looked like a normal street to park in however I did meet some Liverpool soccer legends in the process. This was very upsetting but prompted me to stay way from the parking police for the remainder of the trip and head to some other areas such as the Barossa Valley, Victor Harbour, Port Willunga, Hahndorf, Waterfall Gully and Morialta Falls and this brightened my mood. I have now created my South Australia Gallery and you can check it out by clicking on the photo to the right. I will be uploading more photos of South Australia shortly.

Brad Chilby photo in the Daily Telegraph.

On the 15th of July 2015 I was delighted to see that one of my photos made it into the Daily Telegraph with a number of my photos being published in the online version of the Daily Telegraph through out the week also. This certainly made my very long trip to the Central Tablelands chasing snow worth while. This scene was captured near Jenolan Caves and it was quite impressive to see that much snow in this area. To see more of my photos in the Daily Telegraph and to read more about the big July 2015 cold snap click on the photo to the right.

New Snow Photos from the Central Tablelands!

I headed to the Blue Mountains in the early hours of the morning via Roberston and the Southern Highlands to hopefully capture some snow photos but to my disappointment there was only snow flurries floating around the Blue Mountains with no snow at Roberston or in the Southern Highlands either. I kept heading west until I found snow fall and I first found a good dump of snow at Lithgow followed by even more at Mount Lambie, I heard on the radio Orange got a huge dump of snow but was not sure if it would last so I headed to Oberon, there was no snow at Oberon surprisingly but I did find snow around the Jenolan Caves area. Click on the photo to the right to see the latest snow photos from the Central Tablelands.

Huge cold front to hit New South Wales!

I absolutely love the snow and it is my favourite weather condition to photograph in and with snow forecast down to 600 metres in NSW I am very much looking forward to the weekend and hope to cover a large amount of ground photographing the Southern Highlands and Blue Mountains. I am looking forward to bringing you many more wintery photos like this one to the right that I took last winter near Oberon NSW. Keep an eye on my website over the next week for many new photos.

Photography Camping Trip in - 5 Degrees.

On the June long weekend I ventured out to the Oberon area in the Central Tablelands on a photography/hiking trip. I brought my little summer tent but with all my snow gear hoping it would keep me warm and it certainly didn't! I had very little sleep and struggled to keep warm at all. My tent was lined with ice on the inside and when getting out in the morning I found all the vegetation completely frozen. This trip enabled me to get photos of waterfalls in the southern Blue Mountains wilderness area as well as photos of Hanging Rock. The freezing night was a great adventure.
