Galapagos Sea Lions

The Galapagos National Park is a mecca for nature lovers with amazing biodiversity to be found both above and below the water. Together with Google, we worked with locally based scientific and conservation groups The Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galapagos National Park Service in the area. Of course our primary area of interest is what lives beneath the water, the Sea Lions being a very playful highlight for all involved. This is one of the best underwater panoramas we’ve ever produce […]

Antilla Wreck – Aruba

Underwater Ship Wrecks are fascinating to view, and often encompass equally fascinating stories. The Antilla was another casualty of World War II, when hostilities broke out between Germany and the Netherlands. Here’s Wikipedia’s take on the events that lead to her 1939 sinking:  On 9 April Germany invaded Denmark and Norway. This increased the fear that the Netherlands would also be invaded, so on 12 April Dutch authorities in Aruba confined Antilla’s crew to their ship. On 10 […]

Southern Great Barrier Reef – Tourism Queensland

We recently had the great pleasure of spending time on the road shooting the wonders of the Queensland Coast from Bundaberg to Yeppoon, 2 island of the Great Barrier Reef – Great Keppel Island and Lady Musgrave Island, and 500km inland..

Raja Ampat – Indonesia

I spent a couple of weeks in the Raja Ampat region of Indonesia with UWE (Underwater Earth) our Catlin Seaview Survey partners. We were there to appear in an IMAX 3D Underwater documentary about the region… well they were, I was there to make sure everything worked. In addition we took the time to survey some of the astounding coral in the region and visit with the local owners and care takers of the reef.  It was an amazing trip, check it out above. Imax behind the scenes from Krabi Imagi […]

O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat

I’ve had the privilege of staying at and photographing the wonderful facilities and region of O’Reillys Rainforst Retreat a number of times now.  This is my 3rd shoot with them over the past couple of years, this time to cover some of their new facilities. The family has accompanied me on most of the trips, and truly loved every minute. At least a couple of times per year the kids ask if I can do some more work there so we can stay again

I was in Perth recently shooting virtual tours of hotels for the Ascott Group.  Of course when I wasn’t shooting inside, I was out shooting Perth Virtual Tours. Around the city and out to Fremantle.  It was a quick but enjoyable trip, I hope to get back sometime in the not too distant future.

DJP – First Gallery Showing

Darren Paine one of my oldest friends, a good buddy from primary school, recently had his first photographic gallery showing. He’s a wedding and portrait photographer, so he showcased his portraits. The showing coincided with the year of his 40th birthday… so he managed to tick an item off his bucket list… gallery showing by 40. Of course I had to shoot an Art Gallery Virtual Tour to immortalise the event. Well done old mate.

RSL 303 – Biggera Waters

RSL Prize Homes are always beautiful, and well they should be at over $1.5 million each. But this one… it’s location, layout… it was something special. Only 10 minutes drive from our current home… on the water front… stunning design. We were hooked. www.rslartunion.com.au

Once again RSL are offering the choice of two outstanding luxury places if you win the draw. This time the options are a beautiful place in Balmain, Sydney.  The home is about 100m from the ferry terminal which goes directly across the water to Sydney City… convenient to say the least. The other is a big luxury apartment high up in one of the tallest apartment buildings in the world… the Q1 on the Gold Coast. Once again a difficult choice… which would you choose? www.rslartunio […]

Southside Community Sports Club

We spent many hours shooting into the night at the Sports Club, the Bowls Club & a Function Room they have. When we ran out of places to shoot we needed to wait until all the punters on the pokies cleared out at 11.30pm, so we could shoot the gaming room.

Mater Prize Home 241

I spent the day photographing this gorgeous home on the Sunshine Coast… the best bit was eating lunch while a gentle sea breeze cooled us on the patio

RSL 295 – Robina

Our very first project with RSL Prize Homes, and what a project it was.  1st prize was a complete apartment complex with 4 homes. An extra large one for the winner to occupy and 3 others to rent out for income. We shot a great number of panoramas for this project, but only 6 appear in the final tour. The client was still in the mindset imposed by most virtual tour companies… where you pay per panorama. Of course these days they use most of the panoramas we shoot… usually 10 – 2 […]

HMAS Onslow Submarine Virtual Tour

While shooting Virtual Tours of the HMAS Onslow submarine for the National Maritime Museum I discovered the Sub is a loaner from another Museum in Canberra. That’s quite a loan. From Wikipedia: HMAS Onslow (SS 60/SSG 60) was one of six Oberon class submarines operated by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The submarine was named after the town of Onslow, Western Australia and SirAlexander Onslow, with the boat’s motto and badgederived from Onslow’s family heritage. Ordered in 1963, Ons […]
