On behalf of The Light Collective a huge THANK YOU goes out to the 99 crowd funding contributors along with Momento Pro, HP and Epson that have all made the production of this book and exhibition possible. The guys have worked countless hours on this project using their passion and creativity to raise some very important questions. We as a group hope to raise awareness and encourage discussion on the value of coal and coral. If you missed out on the crowd funding campaign the hardcover book is now available on our website. (See below or link in bio ). You’ll also find information on our upcoming exhibition in Melbourne in early December. Thank you so much for your support and helping us create further discussion/awareness. ______________________________________ ______________________________________

This is just one of the many images I came away with during my time on the South Island of New Zealand with the just released Nikon D850. I used the newly incorporated, automated, “focus shift function” which allowed me to quickly and easily record a series of images of this scene with different focal points throughout. I then took the files into post and focus stacked them to attain fine detail from the immediate foreground right throughout the scene. The “focus shift function” makes the process far quicker and more accurate than doing it manually, like I have in the past.

I recently (not so recently ) returned from the South Island of New Zealand. It's always so exciting to get back over there and be surrounded by so much natural beauty. During my time there I got to not only enjoy the great company of our workshop group and co-leader extraordinaire @ricardodacunhaimages , but I also managed to get in a good stint there by myself which was really nice. On this particular morning at Curio Bay we were treated to a banger sunrise which lit the sky up in every direction. The damn thing was redder than red. Unfortunately I didn't get my camera out until the main show was over but the light, subtle colour and rainbows stuck around long enough to get a lil somethin somethin of my own 👍

This photograph was taken back in 2014 during a workshop I was co-leading with fellow Light Collective member Ricardo Da Cunha. The group was treated to an amazing sunset where the sky erupted in colour. We had anti crepuscular rays and rainbows 🌈 in one direction and a blazing red sunset in the other 🌅. . Ricardo and I are leading another workshop to the South Island this April. It's something we only recently put together with previous workshop participants but we have a couple of additional spots available. If you'd like to join us please see the link in my bio for full itinerary, pricing and booking information. This is just one of the many stunning locations we will visit. . Also feel free to send through a direct message with your email details and I will send through the full brochure asap. . @nikonaustralia #nikonD800E #nikon1424

We were treated to a pretty spectacular display on this particular morning at Wedge Pond in Kananaskis Country, Canada. I used my NiSi 6 stop Neutral Density filter to slow down the exposure to around 60seconds which blurred the clouds nicely. #nikond800e #nikon1424 @nikonaustralia #nisifilters @nisifiltersaustralia

Survival - Medicine Lake, Jasper National Park. Canada. This little family of cottonwoods (I think ) really stood out against the burnt pines that covered the mountainside on the opposing side of Medicine Lake.

Here's a snippet from our exhibition opening night in Sydney on Thursday evening. It was an amazing night and great to have all the TLC crew there together. Having Ken Duncan open for us was something else. The exhibition is running until this Saturday @ The Depot gallery, 2 Danks Street Waterloo, Sydney. For those that can not make it to the gallery our book and exhibition images can be viewed and purchased via The Light Collective website. See link on bio page.

I recently got out to Lake Eyre in central Australia with fellow members of The Light Collective. We spent a tonne of time flying over the lake photographing all the incredible colours, textures and formations. This is just one of many images that will be part of a book release later in the year along with an exhibition in Sydney. #nikon @nikonaustralia #thelightcollective

The stunning little village of Sakrisoy (Lofoten Islands, Norway ) with its funky little yellow huts. I'm also happy to announce that I am now an ambassador and reseller for NiSi Filters Australia.

Moeraki Boulders , New Zealand in the early ours of the morning. The boulders there really are fascinating. These couple looked a lot like Dinosaur eggs. For updates on workshops, new images and other news please subscribe via the link on my profile page.

This is a recent image from my first shoot with the Nikon D810A. I headed up to the Pinnacles north of Perth about a week or so ago to take the D810A for a test ride. I coupled it with the Nikon 14-24mm 2.8 lens making for a great little combo for night photography. The image is made up of two different exposures of the same scene as I wanted the land to be clear and crisp but capture the Milky Way as an expanse of shooting stars. I really wanted to test out the high ISO performance of the Nikon D810A so I set the ISO all the way up to 25600! I then set an aperture of 2.8 and shutter speed of 10 seconds. I started the exposure with the focal length set to 24mm and then slowly during the exposure I zoomed out to around 14mm. Once I got to around 14mm (about 8 seconds into the exposure ) i stopped zooming allowing the stars to burn a little brighter onto the cameras sensor creating the still star at the end of the streaks caused from zooming. Once I got home I reviewed the files and was amazed at just how little noise was present even at ISO 25600! I'm looking forwarded to shooting more with the D810A and 14-24mm combo. #mynikonlife @nikonaustralia #nightphotography

Mount Kidd over Wedge Pond in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada. This was captured some time ago now during my time living in the Rocky Mountains. The Kananaskis region holds a place very close to my heart. @nikonaustralia @travelalberta
