As a photographer, personal projects are fun and they keep you busy! This year is no different, for the past 5 years, I've produced a calendar from our garden (it's more a way to relive what we didn't manage to kill in the past year!). Sadly..... our garden was ravaged by a very intense storm when i...

It's always fun to plan a holiday, whether it's a journey to somewhere familiar, or a new place to explore and add to the favourites list for next time. Tasmania was the latter for us this time.

The island state gave us much more then we expected. I could never have imagined the diversity of landscap...

Day 10.  24th October 2018.

To be honest, I've lost count of what day it is. I think it's day 10, so let's just agree to call it day 10. Surely that's a sign of a holiday well enjoyed? Our last day in Tasmania, and a schedule busier than Madonna touring Adelaide. 

We waved farewell to our final hosts...

Day 9.  23rd October 2018.

The boss told me I got a little bit too traveloguey in my last entry, so I've decided to unleash the windmills of my mind this time, which is kind of fitting for the place we visited today. For some reason, strains of The Kinks' Lola (L-O-L-A, Lola) ran through my head this...

Day 8. 22nd October 2018.

Departure day from Cygnet and a travel day for us down to Koonya, which requires a return to Hobart before continuing down the opposite side of the bay via Eaglehawk Neck. Coincidentally, Koonya means “black swan” in one of the local Aboriginal dialects. A quick trip into...

Day 7. 21st October, 2018.

Right now, I feel like one of the lazy cows in the paddock next door. We've had a big day, touring the local sights with Anne, who played the role of tour guide, complete with running commentary of the local area as we coasted around.

After a quick coffee (and some locally m...

Days 5 and 6.  19th and 20th October 2018.

...Day 5.

Time flies when you're on a big drive and there's so much to see with the naked eye. No time to sit and down for coffee on Friday: it was two takeaways before entrusting our day to Google. The journey from Waratah to Cygnet via the Murchison Highway...

Day 4. 18th October 2018.

Today’s themes are water and perseverance, starting with a solid downpour of rain overnight. This must have been the main contributor to us leaving our digs closer to midday today. First stop: the MUSHroom, because when it comes down to it we’re all creatures of habit, whe...

Day 3. 17th October 2018.

We really need to find more superlatives. "Wow!" and "that's so beautiful" have officially been overused, but with good reason. We kick started ourselves this morning and were out of the unit by about 10 o'clock. I think. Our first port of call was the The MUSHroom. Waratah'...

Day 1. 15th October 2018.

I love the anticipation that comes with a holiday. The mind's eye view before the event making brush strokes of what might or might not happen, but always with the tint of happiness. It always seems we leave Adelaide to be ravaged by a storm when we embark on a new adventure...

29 Jul 2018

A quiet weekend, no teaching and just finished a retouch piece for a client. So, with a bit of spare time and last week's experimentation with light painting, today called for some outside time. Brave the cold, the wind, the sea spray and I headed down to Seacliff SA.

I always reinforce as an educato...

21 Jul 2018

With a quieter time in winter, I turn my creative attentions to developing some new work with light painting. Last year's work with dried flower arrangements (for exhibition) was well received and I thought to extend on that. Personally, light painting is either one of those styles you love or you d...

I'll be running this workshop on Sunday the 21st January through the CCP.

This course introduces you to intermediate portraiture using a variety of studio lighting and modifiers.

Taught by Chris Holmes (Creolumen Photography), Chris is a regular teacher at the CCP specialising in Digital and early cr...

2 Dec 2017

It was an honor to be a part of this collaborative event. 30 photographers from Adelaide participated (including myself). With a great outcome, it was a fun and mad day. I had to teach 'Digital 1' that afternoon, so my day started at 0630, and finished at 11pm. Well worth it however, and as you will...

Second Place winner, 'Lucent' by Chris Holmes (Creolumen Photography)

For the first time it is registered with SALA Festival (South Australian Living Artists) as the exhibition will be in the gallery in August.

This photographic competition looks to capture many visual treasures of this vineyard on th...
