South West Rocks - Lighthouse #2 by 

I am currently travelling the East coast of Australia from Melbourne (Victoria) to Bundaberg (Queensland) with many stops in New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory. My ultimate goal has been to improve my ability to photograph landscapes and to also increase my portfolio of modern abstract monochrome.

I finally hit the coast and the landscape changed naturally to seascapes and rolling sand dunes. This lighthouse is in South West Rocks, a little off the Pacific Highway and as much as the building was very pretty and all, the real attraction is the whale watching of which I indulged for some time (Southern Right Whales).

Photographed with Nikon D700 and Nikon 24-70mm 2.8g lense

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.
