The 9 Best Landscape Photographers in Sydney!
I was very excited to accidently come across this article by Peerspace - The 9 Best Landscape Photographers in Sydney where Brad Chilby from Chilby Photography was mentioned at number 4 which is quite exciting and also very rare. As the article mentions I only shoot one image single exposured and always have as opposed to stacked HDR images. I enjoy trying to do the best to capture the image as it is on the camera on the day rather then completely altering the image in Photoshop and this makes it very hard and if not impossible to compete in competitions and for articles like this. I've always said there should be seperate competitions those that are true photographs and a seperate competition for digital art. 

Thank you to Peerspace for the mention I really apprecite it. To read the full article by Peerspace just click on the photo to the right which will take you to their page.

Contact Us about Non-Reflective glass options!
Although Chilby Photography has set options available online when purchasing artwork, we also have lots of custom options available. One of these options is non reflective glass which has little reflection as you can see to the right, which is a photograph headed to a couple from St Ives in Sydney. The non reflective glass is a little more expensive then regular glass but it is fantastic in rooms exposed to outside or even bright indoor light. There are different strengths of non reflection and in this particular photo, it is a medium strength non reflective glass.

Chilby Photography is open to any type of custom request, which can be sizing, double matboards, coloured matboards, engraved plaques or different framing options. Hit the photo to the right to contact Brad Chilby regarding your custom request.

Coal Coast Mag
Earlier in February I worked with Coal Coast Magazine to capture a photograph of Lawrence Hargrave drive in the Northern Illawarra for the front cover of Issue 12 which marks 3 years of Coal Coast magazine in the Illawarra.

I hired a plane to capture this image flying high over the Northern Illawarra, which was fitting as the cover image was to complement the main article in the magazine about Lawrence Hargrave himself, an aviation pioneer who made a historic first flight attempt at Stanwell Park.

It's a great magazine to have a look at yourself, so take the time to click on the photo to the right or click HERE to view the latest issue.
