I am from Armidale in NSW. My speciality is the photography of birefringent crystals. I appear to be somewhat unique in this respect. I make my images using a modified 6×7 Horseman view camera and equipment I have built. I like the beauty and the unpredictability of working with crystals. I guess the process is a bit like opal mining. You don’t know what you will end up with. Sometimes you have a run of luck and the colours and shapes are amazing!
