- I’ve lived in America for over eight years now, but yet, as an Australian who is highly biased towards my own country, I’ve held the naive assumption nothing could rival the beauty of the Aussie coast. I had seen many incredible things in America, but never really put in as much effort as I should have to explore this country. I finally took a trip out to Colorado this summer, and wow - was I wrong. The drive across Independence Pass surely has to be one of the most stunning parts of the country.
- Photography is based around light. Where it is and what it’s doing to the landscape in front of you. Since it’s so unpredictable, you can look at the same mountain range 100 times and never see something amazing, or see 100 amazing things. This night I just glanced out the window and saw some amazing light. I wasn’t sure at the time what the final photos would look like. I just had to do my best to capture part of what I could see. Just a bit of those crazy rays. Glad I pulled the camera out.
- It was quite early in the morning when we decided to stop and make a few images of the towering rocks of Monument Valley. I turned around and saw Briana caught in the strong backlight and flare of the early morning sun. A few snaps later, I had captured her in this amazing place.
- Starting our dirt road trek through Utah we came across what looked like strategically placed boulders scattered across at the feet of this mesa. Over time the weather peeled apart this Mesa releasing giant boulders running down its side. But the mind blowing aspect is how these boulders are able to stand on sediment mounds and balance as such.
- We’ve been on a very intense photography session for photographers at Antelope Canyon, Page, USA. at the same time, they have photographers groups and tourists, however, when photographers shoot guides stop all the tourists to avoid people in the shot. That girl always tried to do Instagram style picture, staying still with the book and looking to the side, while everyone was screaming and asking her to go away. Apparently, in one of my shot, she looks like a ghost and I kind of like it.
Grand Canyon National Park
- It was during the monsoon season and I was always discouraged about how poorly the pictures of the canyons turned out because of the rain and foggy atmosphere. At some point, on the second day of our trip, the sun briefly came out of the haze and I could finally see the magic details of these magnificent canyons.
Zion National Park
- Rushed up to the top of Angels Landing in only thirty minutes to make it for sunrise. I thought we would be the only ones up there as this was taken in January, but there were already five others when we arrived. They enjoyed the sunrise to themselves and most of them were not there to shoot. It made me wonder whether this should be one of those sunrises that you simply just enjoy. However, we ended up taking some photos and this was one of them.
Death Valley National Park
- We only had time for a quick detour into Death Valley National Park on our way home from the Eastern Sierras. After spending most of our trip under overcast skies and in freezing temperatures, DVNP was a shock to our systems. Even under the brightest sun, this place is all about layers and textures and color. I look forward to seeing it again.
Joshua Tree National Park
Yosemite National Park
- I met this gentleman, who has been photographing Yosemite for the past 30 years, as I was about to leave the park. I could spend hours talking to him about photography, he explained to me how he uses the large format film camera, told me stories about old times and more. The work that he puts into his photos is amazing.
