Autumn garden photography

Do you live in or near the Dandenong ranges? Autumn is my favourite season – still some warmth in the day, cooler nights, and with it changing colours in our trees and gardens. Truly a paradise in this area and I love it.

I am building a garden (botanic) portfolio and I invite you to have your garden photographed if you live in or near this beautiful region. For a limited time I have a special price offering to photograph your garden and give you a 20page photo book of your garden at the special price of $325.00.  What does this entail? Usually 2 visits – the first so I can meet you and get to know your garden, the second to do the photography of your garden at a mutually convenient time.

It can be a portion of your garden or an overview of the whole garden. Or perhaps you know someone you’d like to gift this to?  Make contact with me today via the contact page on this site. I look forward to hearing from you!

We still have some spots available for the nature photography workshop taking place in Victoria in September. But bookings won’t be open for much longer. You can elect to pay a deposit and balance later, or 3 x payments if you book this month. So I encourage you to book now!  Full details here.


2014 Calendars of Dandenong Ranges Images

If you run a business are you planning to produce a calendar for your clients and colleagues? I’ve received an order from a local mechanics shop for 100 calendars to give to his clients and staff.  He’s picked out images from my Dandenong Ranges Calendar Collection.

If you’d like to do the same, please get in touch with me so we can organise your choices and arrange for the calendars to be printed. I can arrange for the calendars to be printed with your business logo and business contact details with your selection of images for the front cover and individual month pages.

If you were reading this blog last year you might remember my 2013 calendar.  I will be producing one again for 2014. The price will be $14.95 plus postage.  I look forward to receiving your orders.


The Golden Hour

I’ve had a fascination for the ‘golden hour’ recently and have taken some shots at the local lake park during that special time at sunrise or sunset.  But during the week I was on my way to a business breakfast in a local suburb and while in the cafe paying for my breakfast noticed the sun out of the window, making its way into the sky. Wish I could have gotten a shot as it was climbing over the hill but I was at the counter and it took time to get my camera out, and get outside. But I did get these two shots and it goes to show you don’t have to be out in a ‘scenic’ location to get a shot of that Golden Hour.

Just outside the cafe looking across the road towards the hills.

Sun rising in Scoresby

I walked to the corner outside the cafe to get this shot at the junction.  And yes, it was early, around 7am.
