Recently I had the rather unique experience of photographing the Tasmanian Devils in the snow at Cradle Mountain!
My Cradle Mountain photography workshops all include a visit to the wonderful devil conservation park Devils@Cradle, and in early May our visit co-incided with a few flurries of snow… Read more →
This is a selection of photos of the place I clearly visit the most, Cradle Mountain. Usually on one of my photography workshops but of course in my own time too – there is so much to see and do at Cradle Mountain… Read more →
There is a little spot at Cradle Mountain that has been on my radar for a long time and this autumn, I finally got out to see it – Suttons Tarn.
How to find Suttons Tarn
For those reasonably familiar with the Cradle Mountain area, Suttons Tarn is up behind Kitchen Hut right at the foot of Cradle Mountain… Read more →
Summer means low rainfall which usually means that waterfalls are not the best photography subject – however, a positive side of low water levels is that you can access angles and perspectives on rivers and waterfalls that are normally very hard – or impossible… Read more →
The Cradle Mountain boatshed needs no introduction – it is one of the most popular spots to visit and photograph for visitors to Cradle Mountain. I regularly visit the boatshed as part of my 3 day photography workshops in the region, and during April, we included a trip to the boatshed on a starry night to shoot some startrails at this iconic spot… Read more →

The best places to view this unique Australian scene are at Mt Field in the south, and Cradle Mountain in the north… Read more →
Lightning has struck twice! During last weeks night sky photography workshop at Cradle Mountain the Aurora australis came out to play (admittedly it was a somewhat weak aurora but nevertheless it was there…)
The reason I say lightning has struck twice is because in March 2013, during the seven day Tasmanian photography workshop I run with Michael Snedic, we were treated to this magnificent aurora at Coles Bay… Read more →
I will be running a three day Cradle Mountain photography workshop from September 22 to 24, 2014.
