This is a 60x40 inch canvas of Chasm Falls in Tasmania that I recently delivered to the Australian Capital of Canberra. It is going up in the front reception area of CC Therapy which is located at Hawker. I thought it was a great pick for the colour of the interior, it looks great!

New Snow Photos...

I recently spent the weekend in the beautiful Central West region of New South Wales chasing snow photos, which is my favourite weather condition to shoot. I visited Orange, Mount Canobolas, Mount Lambie, Meadow Flat, Bathurst, Oberon, Mount Victoria, Blackheath, Medlow Bath and Katoomba and saw snow at all locations except for Bathurst. It was a great weekend with some amazingly low temperatures, blizzards and widespread snow.

I also very lucky to capture the Scottish Highland cattle in the snow, which you can see on the photo to the right. To see the latest photos from the entral West region click on the photo of the Highland cow to visit the gallery.

More and More Photos...

I do have a lot of images available to purchase on my website and many online have a similar landscape style but I do have tens of thousands of photos that aren't listed on my website but are still available to purchase, I rarely add photos of flowers, animals, people, buildings, interiors etc to my website but I do have many photographs from all of these categories and more, all you have to is email me: [email protected] and ask as they can be purchased as prints, frames, canvas etc or stock images.

Also worth noting is that for every landscape photograph from each location I have many hundreds more, if you can't find the exact shot you want or are searching for a shot from a particular location I may well have it. It's worth asking.

Very Inventive!

Thanks Martin for sending in this photograph. Martin is a customer from the South Coast of NSW who has a lovely bed and breakfast at Akolele near Bermagui and he purchased these 12 black and white images of the South Coast as 5x7.5 inch prints, matted and framed in a black frame.

He had this very inventive idea to cover the television with the 12 images on doors that close and hide the television when it is not in use.

I love to see your photographs when they are up on your wall. Please feel free to email me any photos that you may have to: [email protected]

New Sutherland Shire Gallery!
Over the past couple of months I have been working hard to update my Sutherland Shire landscapes gallery with a collection of new and fresh images. I have spent quite a bit of time photographing places like Bonnet Bay, Woronora, Como and Loftus in particular to boost the collection with some new work. The Sutherland Shire is the closest region to Wollongong in the North and is part of the greater Sydney area and previously an area that I hadn't photographed all that much.

I hope you like the new photos, you can check them out by clicking on the photograph to the right. I will continue to update this gallery with new landscape photographs as they come.

Henson's Bus Service Corrimal 1929 to 1959
Henson's Bus Service was a bus company that operated out of Corrimal between 1929 and 1959. This business was proudly that of my Great Grandparents. Henson's Buses was later sold to Hills Bus Company which later became John J Hill and which is now Premier Illawarra.

I found this great little article by Mick Roberts on Looking Back with Mick Roberts which is an excellent source of local history and photographs.

To see the article about the Henson's click on the photo to the right and whilst you are there explore the looking back website further as there are some very interesting stories to explore.
