I'm no snapper, but after seeing some of these taken from the last couple of days up north, i've become somewhat (fleetingly perhaps) interested.

So put up your best snaps.

I was in Broken Hill over the weekend & met a local photographer, Boris Hlavica and checked out his gallery. Always thought I was OK with camera till then. Different league.

Re: The Photo Gallery for the enthusiasts

Cable Beach, Broome, Western Australia. Spent 2 weeks chasing this pic. Have many variations and another was printed in the Australian Magazine but this is my favourite because of the mirror finish on the sand.

This is a gecko at my mates farmhouse. The cobwebs on the window gave it the texture and I created the silloutte by shining a torch onto the wall behind it.

Overit are you a professional photographer? You seem to have the knack that's for sure.

This is a pic that was published in the Australian magazine calender as part of the tourism board promotion. It was under my girlfriends name because I didnt rate it as highly as my others but she liked it and sent it in and the judges thought it was good aswell.

This pic was also in that same promotion calender. I took this on my first day at work for the cradle mountain lodge. I used to work as a maintenance man in some of australias best resort locations so you get plenty of time to snap some great scenery. Digital cameras let you get away with taking thousands of pics and selecting the best ones. You dont get to see the duds. :D

The best part about working at cradle mountain was the wildlife you see. They are used to the humans so they just go about their business and you can get real close. There was plenty of wombats and wallabies just cruising around the place and when I was there alot of joey's were popping up.

I worked at ayres rock for awhile also. I always thought the Olgas had alot more character than the big rock. Just to clarify the pictures that were published for the promotional calender were for a competition for amateur photographers for tourism australia. You had to show people doing something in australia. Ironic thing is I usually only have people in my photos if they wont get out of the way. I prefer nature and landscape.

Yes I have heard of his work. I suppose you could call him a pioneer of landscape photography. He had a strong following on a photography forum I used to frequent.

I have just returned back to cairns and it is a shame to see the Peter Lik Galleries in Cairns and Port Douglas shut down. He always had a nice way of displaying his landscape photos. It would be a hard way to make a crust I think, now with every man and his dog having a digital camera. God help the wedding and portrait photographers out there. I would rather live under a bridge and eat cigarette butts than deal with that sort of thing.
