Join me in experiencing my adventures and excitement on my photo shoots, as I unwrap my journey involved in capturing images that linger, whilst reflecting spectacular scenery that soak the soul with peace and hope!

As I put on my waders and looked out to the horizon at first light that morning, I instinctively knew the sunrise was going to be exceptional. And it was. It was one of those mornings, where the decision to capture the most significant light wasn’t easy, which is a good place to be in.

When I arrived at the water’s edge, and secured my tripod in the sand, I didn’t waste a moment in capturing the incredible light before me.

Of course, the light is constantly changing. That is when the experience of sharpening my photographic skills on many of my shoots, in ordinary light, comes into fruition.  I’m always prepared for the ‘big’ shoot where the light is extraordinary as it was during this morning. There is no time to procrastinate with equipment when the sunrise is evolving quickly. 

This is the moment when nature and the photographer need to function as one. Learning to read each moment and anticipating what the ocean is about to do. It becomes instinctive. The waves are influenced by the tides. 

On the morning of this photo shoot, the ocean was in a ‘relaxed’ mood, almost taking on the appearance of an oversized lake.

I do not take the calm moments for granted for a second. I am working with God on each of my shoots. He is unpredictable, in a good way, which makes the process of capturing the light more exciting. And with good light, the reflections are exceptional, particularly when the conditions are calm.

It was a photo shoot to remember. I packed away my equipment and walked to my vehicle with a spring in my step.
