The popular Day Safaris on the Central Coast will be running again this year.

There will be 6 workshops this year. The first on Travel Photography is happening on March 16. It's sold out but you might be interested in doing another one on Saturday July 20th. "Beyond Landscape Photography" will be on May 4th. I'm preparing two exciting macro workshops for the winter/spring, on June 15th and August 17. More details will be available on this website soon. (I've said that before, haven't I?) In the meantime, the wonderful people at Foto Riesel in Sydney are way ahead of the game and have the info on their website.You can book for some of the earlier workshops on their website.

Have a look at what we did last year to get a taste of what's in store.


"I just looked at your website and it's beautiful. We would love to use your images for any future stories for Science. We are always looking for a great science source."
Soo-Jeong Kang, The New York Times, Picture Editor

"You have taken some wonderful images. How do you do it! I have spent quite a while going through them and this one is my choice for the hero image. I hope that you agree. It has mystery, power and that, 'how did she do that?' look."
Peter Cocklin, Business Development Manager Professional, Kodak (Australasia)

"Your photography is just stunning. We trolled through a lot of photos for our ATM card and they didn't have the same edge. The word we like to use for our advertising is 'spirit or spirited' – a little gasp would be nice when you look at an image. And that's what we were getting with your photos."
