I am a nature photographer who lives in the Hawkesbury area, north-west of Sydney, Australia. I have had a lifelong interest in Australian flora, wildlife and landscapes.
For the past two years I have been experimenting with macrophotography which utilises focus stacking. Focus stacking involves taking many images of a subject at different focal planes and combining them. Using this method, I am able to produce very detailed, almost three dimensional images. It often takes over 20 images, many hours and lots of patience to produce a final photograph suitable for printing. I love the creativity and technically exacting requirements of this type of photography.
Photography makes you look at the world in a different light. You don’t have to travel far to see some amazing sights. Many of my photos have been taken in my own garden and depict the world of nature and the remarkable detail that we often don’t see until we take the time to look closely.
