North Malabar Valley

Here's a great new guide from Suren J and Gerry Blacklock. As I was reviewing this guide I realised that this is one of the places I've been planning on shooting. A couple of my buddies set out to shoot this location but couldn't find the track down. It looks great, I think I'm going to put this on my list to do before Xmas. So click here to check out this great new guide.

New Workshop - Off Camera Flash On Location

Hey landscape/seascape enthusiasts.
I'm very excited to announce a new workshop that will push your photography into new areas. I've just finished designing a workshop called.

While my background has been seascape and landscape photography, I've really enjoyed branching out to include models in my scapes. This workshop will teach you how to use strobist techniques to light models in your landscapes. Click this link to find out more about the workshop.

10.10.10 Sleepout for Homeless

Hey folks
This isn't strictly photography related, but it's still a good cause and worth publicising. On 10th October I'm joining hundreds of others and sleeping out in Centennial Park to raise money for Mission Australia who help thousands of homeless people every night.
I was shocked to learn that each night there are over 100,000 people sleeping rough in Sydney and almost half of these are under 25.

How can you help?
Two ways, sign up and come and join me for the sleepout (you can sign up here)
Make a small donation by clicking this link.

Anybody that comes out to sleep out can come photograph with me, I'll run a free night photography ad-hoc workshop. There should be lots of interesting things to shoot (buskers, people camping out, sleeping rough etc.)

I started the Freephotoguide site as a free resource for photographers. If you have found this site useful, then perhaps you could find a few dollars to support this really worthwhile cause.

Royal National Park

I have to confess, this is one part of Sydney that I haven't really photographed at all. Perhaps because I live on the Northern perimeter and this is on the Southern Perimeter... However after checking out some of the images and beautiful landscapes in this photo guide I think I'm going to have to make a greater effort to get down there.

Graham Grocott has done a fine effort in putting together this guide. I hope you enjoy a Photographer's guide to the Royal National Park

Wattamolla Beach - Royal National Park

Hi folks
Here's a contribution from Glenn Crouch to a beautiful location in the Royal National Park called Wattamolla Beach. I visited this place once about 5 years ago but didn't have my camera with me. I do remember thinking that this was a place worth coming back to when I had my camera.

Thanks Glenn for contributing this guide for us.

Glebe Tram Sheds

It is my pleasure to add this wonderful guide to a pretty unique place - the old tram sheds at Glebe near Harold Park Raceway. This is the location where I shot my image called "Nightmare". It's a fun but freaky place to shoot. I would be very careful if you are shooting there at night, make sure you go with a group.

Rachael Muller has written a great guide to this location, you can view it here.

May Lane in St. Peters

Hey folks
This is a new guide from Rachael Muller (thanks Rachael). This place looks very cool, I think I'm going to have to swing by and check it out for myself. It reminds me of Hoiser and Rutledge Lanes down in Melbourne (which I have checked out).

Amazing graffiti and street art at this location. If you are looking for something different then you definitely want to read this guide.

Parkes Radio Telescope - The Dish

Now this looks like a very cool place to photograph. I remember visiting Parkes when I was a wee little kid. I wouldn't mind having a crack at a night photograph of the Dish. Please click here to view Janine Fabre's lovely photographic guide to "The Dish".


Cockatoo Island

Here's a guide to a fascinating photographic location - Cockatoo Island. I have personally shot here on a number of occasions. It's a great place for either a day trip, or if you are feeling a bit more like an adventure you can also camp out or rent one of the houses on the island and photograph the place at night.

Click here for Herbert's guide to Cockatoo Island.


La Perouse & Bare Island

This is an excellent guide to La Perouse and Bare Island written by Johnno (aka Xenedis).

A wonderful location around this area, you have the beautiful pier itself, as well as some lovely rocks, and of course the gorgeous watchtower. So click here to check out Johnno's guide to La Perouse and Bare Island.

Centennial Park - Macro Photography Guide
