Sugarloaf Rock – a different perspective

‘Sun Kissed’

I always want to capture a unique image if a location has been photographed by every man and his dog. One thing I typically do is not look at a lot of other images that way, when I arrive I can see it without other peoples images in my mind.

It took a number of attempts to capture this Sugarloaf Rock photograph. I had this idea of capturing Sugarloaf Rock as the mornings first light reached over Cape Naturaliste and hit the top of the rock. My first attempt went fairly well. I had big swells, great light, but no clouds. I returned about a month later and on the first morning had the light, but not enough swell or clouds. The following morning I was feeling confident and when I arrived to see the conditions, I was thrilled. Big swell and clouds in the sky. When the light hit the rock I was wrapped! This particular frame I am so happy to have captured. Being setup near the water and low with my wide angle lens can always be risky. This particular wave nearly swept me and my gear in for a swim. As it crashed I hit the shutter and as soon as it finished lifted the tripod up in the air and held on to some rocks. I didn’t realise I had captured this until I got home. Waiting for these to return and hopefully have conditions line up was all worth it!





Canal Rocks Photograph

Conditions at Canal Rocks were awesome and I captured this sweet black and white shot. The waves were sweeping right over the jetty where I was standing and my shoes were drenched as well as my shorts!
‘The Passage’

Another Yallingup Photograph

Well I have another cracker from Yallingup! I love this place and am stoked that I now have two keepers from there. This shot was taken before the previous post. Shooting directly into the setting sun certainly is challenging but if you know how to tackle it, the results are dramatic!

Hope everyone likes this one!


After having not been out shooting in weeks and having not been out of the city in even longer, I was starting to get frustrated. So I was stoked when me and my girlfriend headed south again over the weekend. I love Western Australia’s south-west and I dont think anyone else could say otherwise.

Each time I go there I have a location and photograph in mind that is my goal for the trip or until I get it. This time it was the popular surf beach, Yallingup. Im stoked with how this shot turned out and hope I get to see it printed soon! I have been to Yallingup many times but never photographed it the way i wanted due to lousy conditions. The conditions were perfect this time!

Best Beaches in the World!

No I havent seen all the worlds amazing beaches but I reckon Western Australia stands a good chance in regards to the worlds best beaches beautiful beaches!

This photograph I think captures that! The amazing blue waters that are crystal clear, the white sand, and many of which are surrounded by bushland!

This particular beach is Bunker Bay in the south-west of Western Australia, and on a day as hot as this one was, where else could you possibly rather be?

Love it!

Back down south!

Have always wanted a photograph of the Quindalup Boat Ramp but have never been lucky enough to see it under the right conditions. After an early start with my girlfriend we were lucky enough to arrive at the boat ramp before sunrise to see very calm, glass-like waters. I only managed to capture a couple photographs however, before the fisherman started launching their boats.

Fortune Favours The Brave

Okay there was no real bravery involved in this capture except wild amounts of bugs and the odd limp away from a invading waterline. I named this image of Wyadup Fortune, because of the amazing colours I was able to capture and the simple fact that I was so fortunate to get this shot as I started in a different spot and was getting no results till I moved over here.

Still a shit load more to come!
