Many years ago, I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

I’m a retired teacher who spent a lot of the time during the15 years following early retirement exploring and photographing my country, Australia,travelling alone in my campervan. I used a medium format camera, a Pentax 645. Some years ago I handed most of my many transparencies to the Australian Conservation Foundation to use as needed.
Recently I gave my Pentax K7 plus lenses to my son and now use, exclusively and happily, an Olympus mirrorless camera – the E M1 which has replaced my E M5, now the property of one of my grandsons.

I am at my happiest when alone in the bush with my camera.

In the past, my work was used by conservation agencies, state government conservation departments, a stock photo library, calendar companies and a few other outlets. A folio of my landscapes was published in Wild Magazine. Yearly, over sixteen years, my photos appeared in the ACF’s Wilderness Diary or their Desk Calendar. Nowadays, photography is mainly for my own pleasure and done fairly close to home since it is now much harder for me to travel to faraway places.
I also contribute images to 500px.

Apology

My apologies to all who have kindly commented on my images of late. The mechanisms for responding have disappeared! have notified RB. It seems that I am not the only photographer that this has happened to.
