My name is Alex and I’m photographer originally from Tasmania, a beautiful and diverse island off mainland Australia. When I’m not working my regular day job, I’m out exploring locations around my new home, Melbourne, Australia a stunning city that is home to some equally stunning landscape and seascape locations. This blog provides a log of my trips around Victoria (and occasionally returning home to Tasmania) and photography tutorials when I can.
I’d love to give you a cheesy story about how I picked up a camera as a kid and was instantly hooked but in reality, photography came to me by luck in 2005 when I needed a film camera for school. It wasn’t until 2006 when I purchased a Canon 350D that I became hooked thanks to the instant gratification of digital photography. My photography is self-taught and is constantly inspired by amazing photographers such as Peter Dombrovskis, Galen Rowell, Kah Kit Yoong, Thomas Leong, Denis Olivier and many more.

If you’re a photographer travelling to Tasmania and wondering where to shoot, I’ve compiled a list of Tasmanian photography locations.
I’ve also put together a small guide on what equipment I use to shoot daytime and sunset/sunrise long exposures. You can view this long exposure guide here. Or you might even be interested in a guide I’ve written on waterfall photography. This guide explains and compares shutter speed, discusses the necessary equipment and the most ideal weather for waterfall photography.
