a Fun and Free event

Bring your mum! Seriously, this is a family friendly fun filled frolic of photographers (try and say that fast ten times in a row!) so bring everyone…

The walk will kick off at 4pm for a meet and greet outside of the IMAX cinema and we will slowly wander around Darling Harbour. There is plenty to capture here… CLICK HERE to register to attend.

Today’s iCandy – Russell Falls Tasmania

Russell Falls is in Mount Field National Park, Tasmania, I just love capturing waterfalls. They can actually be quite challenging to capture if the light isn’t just right. But when it all comes together it is tranquil and peaceful. i was staying in the National Park, they have a campground with power and all…  I got up early after a night of rain to shoot the waterfall and as I was walking out of the forest, a couple walked past me and said “we thought we were first to the falls this morning!”… you have to get up early to beat the photographers!
