Full Day Photography Lessons!

On weekends I run full day one on one photography lessons in the Illawarra region as well as in the Sutherland Shire area.  The lessons run for 8 hours and includes lunch and a drink. We stop at 6 to 7 locations and take many photos across the day whilst learning how to shoot on manual and understanding ISO, Apeture, Shutter Speed and White Balance. This past weekend I had a great day with Richard and he took some amazing shots and got muddy, wet and knee deep in water like a true landscape photographer.

Paintings of Photos

I often get asked by artists if they can paint my photographs and I always love to see how the paintings turn out. This particular image of Bradley's Hut in the Snowy Mountains was painted by Lisa Tegg and I think she did a fantastic job of it, I love the colours and detail in it and you can compare the painting to the original photograph by clicking HERE.

Wollongong is Water Spout Alley!

On the 26th of March 2022 a number of massive water spouts otherwise known as twisters appeared just off the coast of Port Kembla in Wollongong. It was the first time that I have seen one in person and in fact I ended up seeing 10 water spouts within an hour. They were an amazing spectacle and many gathered where I was at Kiama harbour to watch mother nature put on a show. The Illawarra region particularly in the north sustained flash flooding from a day of torrential rain. I took the image that you can see to the right from Kiama with a 600mm zoom lens, if you want to see more images I have these available to view on my instagram page: chilby_photography and on my Facebook page under: Chilby Photography.

I was driving through Bulli on the weekend and spotted one of my images up on the Bulli Showground electronic signage board on the highway at Bulli.

Huge Glass Prints!

This photograph is a massive 60x40 Inch print with a matboard and silver frame on top. It is the largest framed print that I have done to date and it has no pixelation visible. I use Australian timber on my frames and all of my photographic products are made locally with quality Australian materials. This particulary image of Sea Cliff Bridge was purchased by a lovely customer at Austinmer in the Northern Illawrara and they kindly sent me this photograph of it hanging on their wall. When I picked it up from my photo framers it dwarfed all of the other framed prints and artworks in his factory but due to its size this is a custom product with specialised glass and foamboard backing to accomodate for its huge proportions. If you are interested in a large custom framed print please contact Brad Chilby by simply clicking on the photo on the right.

Wollongong - Let's Get Salty

I was privilaged to be asked by Robyn Johnson of Blendesq to be a part of the very first podcast episode she is creating as part of a new series called "Wollongong - Let's Get Salty" which is due for release in March 2022. It's an interesting venture to assist in creating a greater connection to nature and to the place that we live, in this case of course that is Wollongong in the beautiful Illawarra region. We headed to relativity films studio at Towradgi to record the episode. I turned up for the recording very nervous as I generally avoid the spotlight where possible but by the end of the recording, I did enjoy it and certainly learned a lot from it.I wish Robyn all the very best for her Podcase release and future episodes, I think she has an important message to tell and promote and I'm sure it will be a popular venture.

Big canvases delivered!
This massive 80x50 Inch mounted canvas of Minnamurra Falls was delivered to a new office building in Wollongong NSW. It hasn't been hang up just yet, but I was so exicted to see what it is going to look I just had to share it as you can see to the right.

It's massive, it's sharp and has no pixelation at all, it will feel like you can be there right at the base of Minnamurra Falls and will hopefully provide a sense of calming at the office. That is the feeling I personally associate with the sound of running water through the forest and the beautiful sight of a waterfall.

This is a custom size artwork, if you want a size that is not listed on my website please get in contact as any custom size can be done.

A look back whilst in lockdown!
This terrible Covid 19 lockdown is certainly taking its toll in many ways and as I'm not out shooting like I was before the lockdown, I have been looking back through my many thousands of photos that I have taken over the years and am picking out anything I may have missed. These photos date all the way back to 2008 and many I have long forgotten about. I have been posting some of them to my two instagram pages as welll as my facebook page and will continue to do so over the next few months. To check out my social media pages these are the main ones I regularly post to: chilby_photography and chilby_international on Instagram and Chilby Photography on Facebook. I do also have a Twitter that I share photos on; Chilbys. The photo to the right is that of the amazing Broker's Nose, Corrimal taken at sunset in teaming rain.

A photo from 11 Years Ago!
This is a quick revisit to a photo I took 11 years ago in the Blue Mountains. I was shooting landscapes in the area with my brother and noticed this talented didgeridoo player with a loads of chracter. We had a chat and asked if we could get a photo together along with a couple of him playing the didgeridoo, next minute this little white boy wandered up to the Aboriginal man and they smiled at each other, I thought it was a nice moment and snapped this random photo. It was one of the first people photos I took as I only did landscapes in those days.

A year later the image was noticed on my Facebook page and was used in Central Australia and Darwin in the Northern Territory as part of Reconciliation Week. It was used a backdrop for a conference in the red centre and in a booklet.

01st      Aug     2021 The Needles! Engadine NSW
My most recent photography adventure was to visit the Needles at Engadine which is a popular swimming hole at the causeway of the Woronora River. It's a peaceful location especially in the middle of Winter with few people around. This crossing of the Woronora River was the original road from Sydney to the Illawarra built in 1841-1843 but was later scrapped due to its steepness in 1866 when the more suitable road through Sylvannia and Sutherland was created. It was originally part of the Old Illawarra highway which still exists today in parts however the track to the Needles is now a firetrail not open to traffic but it is available for bushwalking. I will be back to this location for more photos but for now you can check them out by clicking on the photo to the right.

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.

Chilby Photography does event photos for the Illawarra's i3net, the Illawarra Connection, Wollongong's Carols by Candlight, Fortem Australia and many more.

I regularly service the Illawarra and Sutherland Shire areas but am willing to travel further abroad.

If you would like to make a booking or enquiry please click HERE to contact Brad Chilby. Click on the photo to the right of Ray McCrimmon talking at an i3net event to visit the event photography page.

Home Decor Style Photographs!
Home Decor style photographs have become very popular in recent years, you know the type of shots you see on the walls of Nick Scali and Harvey Norman etc. Well Chilby Photography has a large collection of these type of photographs also, but the difference is that Chilby Photography is a small local business and all our products are high quality and Australian Made, not like the thin light type canvas products you see in some of these large department shops.

If you are looking for this style: email [email protected] to enquire about what is available.

Canvas is Popular in 2021!
2021 has brought about a spike in mounted canvas sales, with many canvases going all over Australia, more then ever before. In particular most are going to Queensland, Western Australia and rural New South Wales which is a change to normal. In the past most orders were to local Wollongong customers. So far it's been an exciting year with many new opportunities.

If you would like a mounted canvas, remember I can also do photos in any custom size, I can print them much larger than the 30x45 inch size on the website, I can do framed mounted canvas and I have a collection of images much larger than what is on this website, so feel free to enquire by contacting Brad Chilby on 0425 308 433 or via email: [email protected]

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.

Camping for Photos!
I recently returned from a four day camping trip in the Deua National Park west of Moruya with Paul Dickson from Nature Engadgement Tours. It was a great trip to gather some photos of remote places for Paul's business and for myself. We had a range of conditions which was great for photography. It's a spectacular national park and if you want to see the best of it contact Paul at Nature Engadgement Tours by clicking HERE.

My photos will be uploaded soon to the Eurobodalla Gallery which you can reach by clicking on the photo to the right.

Somewhere over the Rainbow skies are blue!
Thanks for your support through a rather difficult 2020. As the year comes to a close let's hope that the skies are blue on the other side and 2021 is a much brighter, healthier and happier year for everyone then 2020.

I'll sign off for the year with this photo of a vibrant rainbow at sunset over Wollongong Harbour and Flagstaff Hill, taken in September 2014, back at a time when a pandemic like Covid 19 wasn't a consideration. 

Happy New Year everyone and all the very best for 2021

Photography from a Kayak!

I recently purchased a new kayak to expand my photography portfolio of new photos from locations previously difficult to get to. I took it out for the first time on the weekend on a 43 degrees day and got severly burnt, but learnt some good lessons for the next trip. I'm looking forward to more photos of the Minnamurra River, Lake Illawarra and the Woronora River in the near future and will hopefully bring you some new perspectives and places. 

In the meantime, photos can be fantastic and thoughtful gift ideas. Click on the photo to the right to visit my Australian Landscapes gallery or you can hit the contact us tab and order via email.

A New View of Wollongong...

I recently did a photoshoot from the top floor of the new Avante Towers in Rawson Street, Wollongong, which is 65 metres high and over looking the city of Wollongong with views extending towards the Northern Illawarra in the north, the escarpment to the west and Port Kembla and Saddleback mountain to the south. The views from the top were spectacular in every direction and were a great reminder of what an amazing part of the World Wollongong is and what a great place it is to live.
