A Cool Australian Outback Experience!

Last year I visited the Australia Outback, it is a trip I have done quite a number of times now but one place I hadn't experienced was the Opal mining township of White Cliffs in the far west of New South Wales. It is a little similar to Lightning Ridge but on a smaller scale, but all the same I really enjoyed the history, culture and landscape of this area.

I had the opportunity to stay at the famous White Cliffs underground motel which was literally a really cool experience. It was on a hot Spring weekend but as soon as you walk underground into the motel it has a nice cool refreshing feel about it. I'm glad I've had that experience and highly recommend it. I hope to visit again soon!

Real Photos Only, No Digital Artwork!

One thing that is a little different with my photos compared to some is that every single image by Chilby Photography is a single layer image. I have no images that are layered or HDR and every single image is true to the environment and moment that it was taken in.

I do adjust the contrast on all images and do very minor adjustments but 99% of the work is done on camera. I am happy to say that my photographs are true images and not photoshopped digital artworks.

Quite often layered images and HDR images look incredible, out of this world and more striking then a true photograph but I am proud to produce images not digitially altered.

Lest We Forget...

Today we honour the heroes of Australia and New Zealand who sacrificed so much for the freedom of our nation. They were part of an incredibly tough generation who lived through many dark periods of time such as World War I, World War II and the Great Depression.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them. Lest We Forget.

Scary Movie Cover...

Up on top of the mountain at Darkes Forest we got out an Akubra and a Driza-bone jacket on a cold and foggy Summer's night. We did a number of different shots utilising the street lights shinning through the fog, many looking like the fitting cover for a scary movie. It was on a lonely road in the bush at about midnight and in the photo to the right you can see some red brake lights. I was shooting from within a dark area away from the lights so the car hadn't seen me. Surprisingly he pulled up and asked if our scary character that was standing in the middle of the road would like a lift. I was quite surprised, as I certainly wouldn't stop for a guy standing in the middle of the road, in the middle of the bush, in the middle of the night, by himself wearing a trench coat.

Canada, USA, Alaska Photography Trip!!

In July and August I travelled to the USA, Canada and Alaska taking 15,000 photos in 6 weeks. I first arrived in New York city, I then travelled to Niagara Falls, Toronto and Edmonton. From Edmonton I hired a car and drove on the right hand side of the road for the first time through the Rocky Mountains to Jasper, Banff, Calgary, Columbia Icefields, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake and Moraine Lake. I then visited Kelowna, Whistler, Vancouver and Vancouver Island in beautiful Canada before heading to Alaska. In Alaska I saw the amazing coastal areas of Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau, Haines, Glacier Bay, College Fjords, Whittier, Anchorage before heading inland to Fairbanks, the North Pole and the Denali National Park. It was an amazing trip. I am slowly getting through the photos and uploading to the website.

A beautiful place called Kiama!

We are very lucky here in the Illawarra to be surrounded by such beautiful landscapes. Kiama is a region in the south of the Illawarra between the mountains and the sea. It has a little bit of everything from a busy village, beautiful beaches, unique rock formations, rolling green valleys, waterfalls and luscious rainforests. If you click on the photo to the right it will showcase some of my photos of the region that are true to what this area really is and are taken by an Illawarra local.

Did You Know ...

Every single photograph by Chilby Photography has had very little processing done to it on Photoshop, and that's what makes my images a little different and unique. I don't use HDR, I don't stitch images and I don't use multiple layers to edit. All photos are single layer images, very close to what comes straight off the camera with minimal tweaking done to the shot afterwards. I believe this  produces a photograph true to nature or the environment that it was taken in. I can proudly 100% guarantee that all images are one single shot.

I Love Waterfalls!

Waterfalls have been one of my favourite subjects since I started photography and even before that. I have spent endless hours hiking to remote waterfalls and have been doing this since about the age of 10. I love being out in the wilderness and exploring new places. I have found many unnamed waterfalls over the years but have put a lot of effort into hiking long distances to find them. I have put together this gallery with some of the waterfalls from around the country. Click on the photo to the right to check it out.

Abstract Art...

Every now and then I try and take photographs that are a little bit different from the usual and create an abstract look to the shot by slowing panning my camera as I take it. I like do this type of shot in the forest particularly if it is foggy or down a lonely lane lined with tall trees. I hope to continually populate this gallery with more photos over the remainder of the year.
