In the studio – With Dexter

Rarely a day goes by that I am not accompanied in the studio by the dogs. Dexter in particular loves to be involved in whatever I am doing. I had set up a scene by my window and placed a chair as part of my scene. As soon as I put the chair there, Mr…

Southern Brown Bandicoot

They may look like a large rat but the Southern Brown Bandicoot are a small mammal and a marsupial. Australia is quite well known for our strange marsupials, mostly the Koala and Kangaroo, but we actually have so many more species. This little guy is quite endangered, but there is a happy little community at…

Dogs in the studio – again

With an ongoing Covid Lockdown, again…it seems my only willing and available model is Dexter. He is actually getting really quite good and is really learning his craft. I know many will think it is staged, but it’s not. I set up this still life/ lifestyle scene for a shoot and young Mr. Dexter ever…

Tea with friends

I was recently setting up some still life in the studio, the dogs were with me, as per usual. This was my scene below. I barely snapped the scene above and Dexter just happened to pop up on the chair, far more interested in the chocolate chip muffins (which he didn’t get) than anything else.…

Dogs in the studio…

While we were in lockdown, my daughter and I decided to have a little fun in the studio. Something I had seen before and wanted to try. Not everything went to plan on the day, but it was still loads of fun. Throwing treats for Dexter to catch and capturing him in action. I call…

Mothers Day flowers – Red Tulips

Every year my daughters buy me flowers for Mother’s Day, but the last few years they have made sure they have been quite photogenic ones. They are not fancy or expensive, but the fact that they think about what I might also like to photograph is especially nice. I also had a little help in…

Autumn getaways – Phillip Island, part 4

Sadly this was our last morning on the Island, time to pack up and head home, but not before coffee and breakfast. We said fair well to Phillip Island, again under beautiful Autumn skies, just magic. We had one more stop which was Churchill Island Heritage Farm, we had never quite made it here before.…

Autumn Outings – Healesville Sanctuary

Nothing beats getting out and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air in Autumn, my favourite time of year. We recently headed out to Healesville Sanctuary with our eldest daughter to enjoy some time with some quirky Aussie animals. That’s all they house here, Aussie natives. Great down out with the camera and family. Really not…

Dog Day Afternoon

What does that mean anyway, apart from the obvious? So post Christmas we took Chloe and Dexter and their friend Harvey to a new Dog Park. I had scoped it out on a few trips to Gunns Road Reserve and Frog Hollows. Lovely and big and totally fenced in, lovely grassy areas and trees. There…
