Timor-Leste Ten Years On


This year marks ten years since I served in East Timor with the Australian Army. East Timor has held a special place in my heart over the last ten years, so I've decided I'm going back to retrace my steps!

East Timor is a country right on our doorstep, full of so much natural beauty, yet so little known by the Australian Public. It is only an hour and twenty minutes from Darwin, much closer than Bali, but it is rarely chosen by Aussies as a holiday destination. 

I want to change this. Forget Bali, travel to Timor-Leste!

Veterans Instameet #16


Come and join the Veterans Instameet team for a Veterans Instameet with a twist!

This Instameet we will leave our hiking boots and tents packed away, instead we will head indoors and focus on portraits. 

David Boon from Travel in Pixels will co-host this Instameet and teach us the ins and outs of fine art portraiture.

The aim of the event is for everyone to come away with an understanding of studio lighting, the principles of directing a model and how to compose great portraits indoors using natural and artificial light. 

The event will have a $25 cover charge that will cover lunch snacks and a thank you gift to the hosts.

The Instameet will be held in Austral, the exact address will be given on the week of the event. (https://goo.gl/maps/hMNTDsbsQYE2)

My & Tin.


My & Tin's Pre-wedding Shoot.

I had the pleasure of photographing My and Tin at La Perouse a few weeks before their wedding.

I had big shoes to fill as Tin is also a wedding photographer! 

It was a true pleasure working with this photogenic couple on a cloudy Sunday afternoon.

Enjoy this little sneak peek.

Veterans Instameet #15 - Bombo Quarry


Our first Veterans Instameet for 2018 will be held at one of the most "Instagramable" places on Australias East Coast, Bombo Quarry.

We plan to arrive at the main car park at the Northern end of Bombo Beach at 5:00pm on Saturday 10th March 2018.

Once the sun goes down we will try a spot of steel wool spinning, light painting and night portraits using off camera, remote flashes. 

Be sure to bring some warm clothes, enclosed shoes, a torch, water, tripod and snacks.

We require everyone attending to register with Eventbrite incase of any last minute changes to the plan.

Don't forget to tag all your photos with #veterans_instameet
