I am a self taught photographer and have been taking photos for the better part of 30 years, getting my first SLR camera in 1983 (a Konica FT1).
I love capturing the underappreciated natural beauty of my local area of NW Tasmania.
It never ceases to amaze me how close I live to such bountiful variety.
From the magnificent rainforests of the Tarkine interspersed with button grass & heath plains to the beautiful long beaches of the north coast framed by headlands, to the rugged wild beauty of the west coast beaches. Quiet little coves and savage rocks, snow covered wilderness peaks and rolling majestic farmland. Gravel roads, bush tracks & old buildings. Little creeks only the locals know and navigable rivers.
I have most of this within 30 minutes from my doorstep and the magnificent Cradle Mountain/Walls of Jerusalem National Park is but 3 hours drive away.
I love blocks of colour, big skies, and twilight coastal shots,
I use a Nikon D90 camera with the old D40 kept as backup.
My lenses are, a Nikon 50mm F/1.8, a Nikkor 18-200mm AF-S VR and a Sigma 10-20mm wideangle.
I use a polarising filter, a UV filter and ND filters depending on the circumstances.
I use a Velbon Tripod and a Nikon remote shutter release.
