Australian Fine Art Photographer, Dip of Fine Arts (Photography), whose work is inspired by a love of nature and the abstract.
My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.
I hope to surprise and intrigue the viewer with my work and explore the notion that beauty exists everywhere…in the right light!

Thank you for visiting my gallery.

    i love your images!
    you just have to love old cameras huh? i have a bit of a collection myself but most aren’t working…

  • Thanks so much scott. Yes, I love my Argoflex. Do you have a TLR or one with a large viewfinder in your collection? It doesn’t have to work (as long as the viewfinder and lens is intact), you just take a photo with a digital camera of the image in the viewfinder of the old camera.

  • Thanks so much Basia, the s/c is something new for me, I wanted the boat to stand out.

    This reminds me of a french film titled ‘The Red Balloon’. It was and still is my favoiurite all time film. A boy has a red balloon and it gets away from him and he follows / chases it through the streets of Paris. Love this to bits.

  • Sounds wonderful Robert, I will have to look it up, bet it’s black and white and ummmmmmm…….red!
    Imagine wondering the streets of Paris!
