The Light / Art Version

It’s not that Jordan ‘sees the light’, it’s that the light ‘sees him’ :)

I had a bit of fun with this one. I don't doctor my photos, but I thought it'd be cool if there was some sort of beam of light lighting Jordan's face as he seemed to be gazing heavenward. So I turned it into art. Now it's not a photo but a creative expression.

Artist's Gaze / Art Version

Facing the future, the danger, the crashing waves
The steely resolve of the artist’s gaze

Defending champ & 6x World Champion Stephanie Gilmore stands on the precipice of yet another world title campaign before launching herself from Snapper Rocks into the raging seas of 2018. As always she was hungry, graceful & awe-inspiring but this year the trophy was for someone else to lift. 2018 Roxy Pro Gold Coast.

Go Nick! / Art Version

Inspired by Melbourne’s laneways and love of street art I created this digital artwork based on a photo I took of Nick Kyrgios in the lead-up to his Australian Open campaign. Go Nick!

Revelation Road / Composite

Champion Print
2017 Royal Queensland Show

First Place: Creative - Digital Imagery, Altered Reality
2017 Royal Queensland Show

This creative photo composite is designed to be spectacular - reminiscent of a classic fantasy art poster from the '80s & '90s. It's got a 'book of Revelation' feel to it - though it really has nothing to do with it. But it looks like it could be, so I call it Revelation Road.

I originally called it Super Duper Moon and I entered it under that name into the 2017 Royal Queensland Show photo comp. It won its category - 'Creative - Digital Imagery, Altered Reality' - and went on to win the top prize - Champion Print - of the whole show. See my other Ekka photos here.

I've overemphasized the contrast & colour somewhat to help with that fantasy look. But apart from that, it's all made from my photos.

The photos...

The photo of the Supermoon (Hunter's Moon, Nov 2016) was taken from Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane, along with a thousand other people. Even though the moon was the closest it will be until 2034, it didn't look anywhere near this big. I chose to let some of the stars behind it show through to emphasise other-worldliness.

The bird is a White-bellied Sea-Eagle flying over Moreton Island.

The main photo featuring the ground and night sky is a long exposure shot taken west of Toowoomba after midnight, one cold night.

The shooting star was taken out past Toowoomba (see photo in Nature).

Jupiter is also featured with four moons, taken in Brisbane.

I created this picture to enter into the 2017 Royal Queensland Show's photo comp, so it's pretty cool that it not only won its category but won the whole thing.

#13 / Art Version

Adriano De Souza (2015 WSL World Champion) enjoying some airtime at the 2018 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast.

This time last year Adriano posted one of my photos on Instagram. Out of the 10000s of photos taken by 100s of photographers he only posted 1 photo taken during competition. Mine. So as a bit of a tribute I’ve done this. It’s one of the photos I took of him competing this year with the colour removed, a hint of colour added along with the writing from his jersey. Hope you like it.

Motocross Mayhem / Composite

It took me hours to arrange all these photos. I think I should get an award for the arrangement alone:) All 20+ photos by me.

Showtime FMX riders Robbie Marshall & Pete Anderson put on an awesome display of aerial acrobatics that shouldn’t really be possible! What can be done mid-air and at speed, in variable wind conditions on - or off - a motorcycle blows me away! And the most amazing thing of all? They land the jump. Usually.


I love all my Artified pics.

River Monster / Art Version

On the riverbank it waits, lurks, hides. Under the cloak of dusk, hungry, it rises from the rocky mudflats to devour the unsuspecting. Prey, pray. There is nowhere to run, no way of escape, no hope of ever making it out alive... Oh, it's only just a couple of gnarly trees. Phew!

I was, however, stabbed in the leg by a jutting piece of wood as I tried to leave, so maybe it was a river monster after all!
