Dark Mofo 2018 has come but not quite gone – the art installations are down but the fallout from the Lord Mayor of Hobart’s criticism of the festival goes on. I spent Sarurday night wondering around the waterfront and it really was amazing to see so many people out and about… Read more →
Myrtle Gully Falls is very close to Hobart and a great place to get some experience photographing waterfalls. It is found on the Myrtle Gully track which begins at the end of Old Farm Road, which is conveniently located right at the rear of the Cascade Brewery, so you can reward yourself with a cold drink after a session on the mountain
The walk in from the car park is only 10 minutes or so, and is mostly uphill walking, but on a fairly gentle gradient… Read more →
I recently shot this stunner of a sunrise down at Clifton Beach.
It was something of a “slow burner” – quite overcast and grey on arrival, a sliver of pink entered the sky and gradually caught fire over a large part of the sky… Read more →

My Hobart and Surrounds photography workshop is a beginner level session which includes a waterfall shoot on Mt Wellington followed by a sunset session on Hobart’s eastern shore.
I have adjusted the format of the workshop a little with the main change being that there is no longer a minimum of two participants required for me to schedule a workshop… Read more →
The snow in Hobart has been a major talking point this week, and with many of the roads closed I took a quick drive to Lindisfarne this morning to shoot a snow capped Mt Wellington at sunrise. The Tasman Bridge of course was looking splendid all lit up pre-dawn until the beautiful pink dawn took over… Read more →
Sunrise Spots Hobart – There are many great locations around Hobart to capture great sunrise photos. Here are some shots from an area I have been to a few times over the years – Clifton Beach.
Clifton Beach is located approx 30 minutes driving time from Hobart along the South Arm Highway past Lauderdale… Read more →
Here are some shots from Mt Wellington as the mist rolled in over Hobart one evening. I really like the contrast of nature in the foreground (ie the boulders and the silhouette of the trees) and the bright lights of Hobart spread out far below… Read more →
