Quotes of the day
People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder', and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves. ~ Salma Hayek

The motorised bicycle was becoming popular in the early 1900s, but the positioning of a passenger in relation to the cyclist had not been quite decided yet. The Belgian company Minerva came out with a 2 HP 239 cc side valve with Mills and Fulford fore-car frame in 1903. This contraption could cruise at 30 km/h and was capable of a top speed of 50 km/h. I hope you like the photo of this week, which I took at the GOMA motorcycle exhibition early this year.

I took this picture of the hotel we were staying at in Perth two years ago. I found the lighting and lines interesting.

A couple of weeks ago we traveled to the Red Centre of Australia. You have possibly seen the iconic film 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' in which three people climb a hill in high heels dressed in feathers as if they were to perform at the Moulin Rouge. Well, they climbed to the top of Kings Canyon in the Northern Territory of Australia. Two of us did just that with a backpack each containing two liters of water. Mine, loaded with camera gear was 6kg heavy. We climbed what the locals call the "Heart Attack Hill" ( ...

This question is for wedding photographers.

I am in the middle of restructuring my business. I have been offering wedding photography for the last 14 years. I see more and more brides and grooms want the same service provider to provide photo AND video. I have started offering both.

I am just wondering whether some of you started offering video, as well, as photography and share some of their experiences? Any pitfalls I need to pay attention?

Some weddings, I am planning to shoot myself and some weddings I am planning to shoot as a photograp ...

Caught these colourful King Parrot pair (George and Mildred?) pilfering Robyn's cherry tomatoes late this afternoon. They were gorging themselves on the seeds and actually stayed still long enough for me to fire off some shots with the E-M1x. (18fps sounds great until you have to wade through the files afterwards!) They eventually flew off into the sunset, their little bellies full.

I took this picture last week during our visit to Cairns and its environs. It's the portrait of a local celebrity in the Daintree. His is affectionately known as Scarface and like its namesake the famous American gangster, Al Capone, is the master of its territory and someone not to be trifle with. I hope you like it.

Self portraits are really confronting, especially when you have a face like mine, tailor-made for radio! :rotfl2:

Anyway, here's an off the cuff portrait from this morning. Actually I had no intention of photographing as I was busy doing a live zoom meeting, but after that was finished I thought I'd fire off a few shots seeing I had the room all set up. Single LED (5600K) through small softbox. Fuji X-s10 + 10-24 F4 super wide angle lens. It's not ...

I took this picture last week. In reality it's a composed image of 22 individual pictures each taken for 20 seconds and one second apart of the night sky in Yulara, the resort complex that serves the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. I was fortunate to have a night with no moon and this is the result which I hope you like it.

Fuji 35mm F1.4 goodness this time. Doesn't say much for the photog as you can't take a bad photo with this classic lens...

I have found an incredible spot, about 400m from our house in Coffs, where it's always in shade. (It is a flood mitigation area, so when it's teeming rain it's most probably not a great idea to walk through the area). Perfect spot for portraits. My 21 month old grand daughter was a willing subject last weekend.

What I like of this particular photo is that the white flowers in the foreground remind me of the dots in the indigenous paintings.
