In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

I recently bought a Fuji X100 as a replacement for my Voigtlander Rangefinder.  It takes pictures.

A bargain is something you can’t use at a price you can’t resist.

Picked up the print on the right down the road in Woollahra for $15 from a garage sale.  All it has written on it is “Chile, 1998” and “Crawford.”  The chair is from the same place.

I just stalked the photographer who created it, John Crawford

Give me the money that has been spent in war and I will clothe every man, woman, and child in an attire of which kings and queens will be proud.  I will build a schoolhouse in every valley over the whole earth.  I will crown every hillside with a place of worship consecrated to peace.  ~Charles Sumner

So, a guest blogger, Jeremy Cowart, on Scott Jarvis’s Blog, had this idea.  And ran with it.

It looks like a pretty good way to take quality photography to the masses and help out those in need.  Perhaps a great way to introduce people to the joys of owning art, too.   It is an especially important idea here in Australia if we consider how little Aussie society/business values good photography these days.  How often do you hear “It’s all just digital, right?”
I’m in.

38 bottles of beer on the wall

July 29th, 2009 — 8:06am

Courtesy of Lens Culture are 38 interviews with some of the photographers at the forefront of the industry.  At least financially speaking.  Dignitaries include David Maisel, Stephen Mayes, and Edward Burtynsky.  They are fairly extensive audio interviews on various topics with accompanying slideshows.  It’s pretty interesting stuff, but will take a while to get through it all.  More to come on this in the next few days, I’m sure.

Burtynsky works on a grand scale.  He’s pretty well known and has produced some amazing images from the three gorges dam site.  A subject which is close to my heart, well, interests.

Le Tour

Andrew Hetherington over at WTJ? has been covering Brent Humphries covering the tour.  There’s been a lot of hype around the work, and I think it’s well justified.  Here’s one of my favourites from one of the previous years.  The whole production is tremendously intensive, Van, Motorbike and all this gear

About. aka: The Beginning

July 22nd, 2009 — 8:37pm

Dear World,

I am a photographer living in Sydney.  I worked in San Francisco for 4 years for a couple agencies and as a freelancer.

I recently left my studio job to do more intimate documentary and editorial work.  I’m going to try to make ends meet making the images I want, rather than doing catalogue work.  We’ll see how that goes.  This blog will house some of my work and some thoughts on the goings on around the photography scene in Australia and abroad.

My portfolio is available at

Tsuki yuki hana wa ichido ni nagamerareno:  The moon, snow, and flowers cannot all be viewed at once.

just so we can get better acquainted, here I am on Mt. Bogong last week.  Thanks to Angus for the shot.
