Help save the Kimberley

•July 18, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Hi everyone

I’m not one to ask for money, in fact I never do. This time I think it is worth it. One of our last wilderness areas is under threat and we need to raise awareness and get the message out there to the public. The Gas plant proposed at James Price Point does not need to go there. There are alternatives. I don’t want to stop Woodside getting the gas. I want to stop Woodside and the government affecting a wilderness so pristine it belies belief. If you could make a donation however small that would be a step towards protecting the Kimberley for our kids. It is up to us now to fix what is wrong with the way we do business. Don’t allow our planet to become one huge industrial wasteland. We should be thinking smarter and being more aware of our actions that will affect future generations.

I love the Kimberley and have photographed it over the past two decades. It is special because it is remote, it is pristine and it is one of our last great treasures. I want to keep photographing it the way it is now. Think the Pilbara and fast forward 50 years, will the Kimberley suffer the same fate. I hope not.

If you feel you can make a donation go to

It would be unbelievable if by sheer weight of numbers we could divert this unnecessary action by a small few with dollar signs in their eyes and hearts.

Bad news first Team Digital are postponing the ITeazer Night that was running on the 24th Feb. Some products they were going to announce wont be here in time . So they are running it in May instead. I will be keen to get to that.

Good news is that Les Walkling has been confirmed . He doing a number of thing for Team Digital as part of the FotoFreo 2010 program.
The main one will be a hands on workshop on Fine Art Printing all the details are on their blog. If you haven’t seen Les in action make sure you get along to this. I hope to be going too.

They will also have a free Fine Art Printing Seminar running which will be on the Team Digital blog (see my links bar).

Idiot of the Year

•February 15, 2010 • 20 Comments

Today is the first day I have started to get my energy back. Hopefully will be even better tomorrow. If I did get Cyanide poisoning this is why. The title says it all, what an idiot. Thanks to legend photographer Tony Hewitt for these pics, he could have been the last person to see me alive.

I just wanted to thank Nikon again for the loan of the D3x, the 24-70mm, the 14-24mm, and the 70-200mm. It was awesome to have this gear to use and as one of the photographers I travelled with said to me, ” the D3x is probably the best dslr in the world right now” You know what, I do believe he is right, and he knows his stuff.

Oh and to the guys at Nikon, you might want to wash your hand before eating your lunch, just in case. I gave it a good wipe over, just don’t go licking it clean. Hey just as well those puppies have cyanide seals on them!!

HOT Damned HOT!!!

I put the spelling mistake down to cyanide poisoning!!! ok, so no more he can’t spell stuff, a man is not a dictionary you KNOW!!!

The name says it all! We stopped at this scene about 80kms inland from Marble Bar. I took this handheld stitch pretty quickly as at the time I thought I was going to drop dead from Cyanide poisoning. If you get a good dose of that stuff you would be dead in a matter of minutes. I wish I had thought a bit more about entering a mine site without checking it was ok, never again, I can’t handle the stress!! Oh and the heat…. note to self, next assignment to be in a less extreme location!! Poor Pete went from Antarctica to the hottest place in WA.

Shot with the amazing Nikon D3x and 24-70mm lens, love it!
