Hi folks. Here’s a very practical post today. It’s my basic process for selecting and developing images. On a typical project I’ll shoot somewhere between 500 and 1000 frames.

While I was in Cairns for a week with family I for some unknown reason decided to sit down and […]Continue Reading

Hi all. Apologies for not getting a post out to you last week, I was up in Cairns visiting family and having a some R&R time. Because I’ve been traveling a lot this year I have been working hard to make everything I do as mobile as I can. I essentially run a virtual office with almost everything online.

Should you wait 6 months for the landscaping to mature or should you get in straight away while the earth is still bear and there are less distractions like client furniture or gardens that hide the best vantage points? There isn’t one right answer, […]Continue Reading
