Lake Sorell, Tasmania (SOLD OUT)

The Tasmanian Central Highlands are dotted with many lakes and tarns. The day was spent looking at some of these lakes hoping for a good photograph.

Nettley Bay, Tasmania

This bay forms part of the rugged coast line that separates the Great Southern Ocean and luscious green farm lands.

Arthur River, West Coast, Tasmania

The West Coast can be a wild and rugged place to venture. This image was captured trying to portray its wild elements. It was a potentially disastrous situation as a king wave caught me off guard sending me scrambling up a rock shelf lucky to escape with wet legs. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, .6 ND filter, f22 @1 second. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Crater Falls, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

It was a dark overcast day about to rain, which allowed me to increase the exposure on my camera giving the water a smooth silky appearance. It was taken midway through autumn as there are still small traces of red fagus leaves to be found scattered across the rocks. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, f45 @1 minute. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

North Coast, Tasmania

The rocks in the foreground appear to be erupting out of the sea adding to the raw and rugged atmosphere of this image. There are many interesting rock formations to be found on Tasmania’s north coast due to volcanic activity many years ago. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, .9ND filter, f45 @1 minute. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Hartnett Falls, Tasmania

Thundering water was pouring its way over the cliffs edge only to be turned into a gentle stream surrounded by old growth forest. It was a peaceful place to rest before walking to the next camping spot. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, .6ND filter, f45 @15 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

McCoys Falls, Tasmania

To get to this water fall involved a lot of time scrub bashing through tea trees, getting disorientated and sliding down slippery, muddy banks, all whilst carrying a heavy pack. It was a well earned rest while watching the water race its way down stream. The most interesting part was getting over to the other side of the river to continue on with the walking track! Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, Centre filter, f45 @15 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Winterbrook Falls, Tasmania

It was a cold and harsh winter’s day. There was sleet and snow just starting to settle in when I took this image. I had a friend hold an umbrella above me trying to keep my camera gear dry whilst I was setting up. The looming conditions worked in my favour giving a long shutter speed which really helps sharpen the details and make the stream silky smooth. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, f45 @2 minutes. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Louisa Bay, Tasmania

This part of Louisa bay was a welcome sight after me and my friend pushed our way through some of Tasmania’s thick unforgiving bush, negotiating our way past venomous snakes and scaling our way down steep sea cliffs. We then found ourselves sheltered in a sea cave waiting for windswept rains to pass us by. This rain had helped clear the air presenting me with an opportunity to photograph this spectacular bay. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, .9ND filter, f45 @3 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Cox Bite, Tasmania

This beach is at the constant mercy of Tasmania’s reputable southwest weather. Fleeting wind and rains tear their way through the mountains down across Cox Bight and eventually out to sea. This area had many different moods governed by the weather at any time of day. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, .6ND filter, f22 @1/2 second. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Louisa Island, Tasmania

Carrying a heavy hiking pack for days looking for photographs can be enduring at the best of times. After 7 days this trip was no exception. The rewards of being present in places of such beauty as this place was are the best reward for any photographer. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Provia ISO 100, centre filter, .6ND filter, f45 @30 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Liffey Falls, Tasmania

I have made many trips to Liffey Falls over the years trying to get an image I am satisfied with. This particular image was taken late in the day not long after huge downpours of rain had swept through the area. The large rainfall has made the plant life look vibrant and the waterfall even more spectacular. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Velvia ISO 100, centre filter, .6ND filter, f32 @3 seconds. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Cephissus Falls, Pine Valley, Tasmania

Light struggled to penetrate through the dark canopy of trees. These falls run through Pine Valley situated in the Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair NP. The day had almost past with rain threatening on a late April day. With the damp air starting to settle with night approaching I was able to slow my camera’s shutter speed right down, capturing the finest details throughout this image. f45 @8 minutes, Fuji Velvia 6x17, ISO 50 Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Little Fisher Falls, Tasmania

Little Fisher is a great river to explore within the Walls of Jerusalem NP. The river snakes its way through a beautiful old myrtle forest only to lead to this picturesque waterfall. F22 @30 seconds, Fuji Velvia 6x17, ISO 100. Limited Edition: 300


Gallery item

Reynolds Falls, Tasmania

Reynolds Falls is what I believe to be one of Tasmania’s most spectacular waterfalls. I have visited this place on few occasions with mixed feelings and results. It takes days to trek in and out with a loaded backpack. The walk takes you over button grass plains, through an old Myrtle forest eventually sending you down a muddy bank, only to peel back the man ferns to see this incredible fall. The Vale River appears to be erupting through the cliff face, spilling out into this amphitheatre only to snake its way round a bend and disappear from sight. f45 @2 minutes, Fuji Velvia 6x17, ISO 50. Limited Edition: 25

Bird River, Tasmania

I took this image in the middle of February. How green is this place even in the middle of summer. I set of from the car park at 3am along the 2 hour trail in hope of a sunrise across Macquarie Harbour. It was real cloudy and I decided I would have been better off if I slept instead. I did have a great time exploring the river on the way back clad in thermals and a pair of gumboots. One thing to my amazement was that in the pitch black dark the slippery banks alongside the river were covered in glow worms. I have never seen these little gems outside a cave before.

Tarkine Wilderness

Taking some of the most rewarding images can be a real test of patience and determination. I stumbled across this green oasis in the Tarkine Wilderness after twisting and crawling my way through thick, horrible horizontal scrub. Mention ‘Horizontal Scrub’ and ‘Bowra” to the most hardy of bush walkers from Tasmania and you will be humoured by most of their reactions.


Gallery item

Luminous Canyon

I took this image late in the afternoon after traversing my way down into the bottom of the canyon. Storms have been lashing the State (Tasmania) for the past few weeks making everything bright green and the waterfalls full. The sun was just revealing itself behind the waterfall gently diffusing the mist giving me this cool shot.


Gallery item

Cradle Canyon

There are many hidden spots up and along the way to the world famous Cradle Mountain. Some are pretty crazy and adventurous places to be found with a little exploring. I love the chaos of this image with the ancient tree lodged across the canyon with all the lush lichen growing across its trunk. With exploring comes great cost which equaled plenty of blood sucking leech’s to be discovered on location.


Gallery item

Liffey Falls, Tasmania

Liffey Falls is a great spot to visit up towards Tasmania’s central plateau. It has fairly easy access and grading which makes it suitable for most photographers and families to visit all year round. There are three main lookouts showcasing three seperate tiers along this stretch of rive. This tier is at the furthermost bottom part of the walk which seems to grab most peoples interest.


Gallery item

Winter Canyon, Tasmania

Winter has really struck Tasmania over the last few days; and I love it! Hectic storms have been lacing the state with heavy snow. I removed myself from the comfort of a wood fire at home to embrace the elements, as I found myself abseiling into this wintery canyon. Carefully I had to hop and drag myself across snow covered rocks to position myself in the middle of the river for this shot. I finally pulled the pin after I lost all feeling in my hands, my gear and myself was getting covered in snow as the scuds ripped their way through this canyon.


Gallery item

Winter Chaos, Tasmania

Wintery Chaos. This is possibly one of the coldest moments I have been in for a long time. I was huddled out in the middle of this river trying to get my frozen hands to cooperate with me to operate the camera. Gusts of wind brought heavy snow showers down through this valley adding drama and atmosphere to this gorgeous location.


Gallery item

East Coast Horizon

I was hoping for a surf this day but the waves were messed up with confusing across shore winds so I grabbed the camera, took advantage of the brooding sky and took some long exposure images along the beach. It was kind of tricky getting the right amount of motion blur in the water without washing away the deep mysterious greens in the water which help add depth, mood and contrast to the scene. Watching those king waves was also a bit of a bugger getting me pretty wet.
