George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography | Wombats of Bendeela – Fine Art Photography Article

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography | Wombats of Bendeela When we were trying to think of things we’d like to do in Australia, my wife was really keen to see wombats. So we put them on the list, but I didn’t honestly expect to see them. They’re not all that common, and they’re primarily nocturnal. But as we researched other things we’d like to do, and places we’d like to visit, we came across Kangaroo Valley, which was…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography In October 2017 I visited Australia for the first time. I spent three weeks in New South Wales, my time split between family time, holiday time, and photography. It goes without saying that Australia is packed with potential for a nature photographer – for both wildlife and landscape photography. So I’m sure I’ll have a few different blog posts from the trip as time goes on. But I wanted to start with the…

Full moon weekend in Kiama – ptanphoto – Underwater Photography Article

Full moon weekend in Kiama – ptanphoto We were supposed to go camping in Kiama a couple of weeks ago with a bunch of friends. It was a new-moon weekend, perfect for astrophotography.

So this past weekend, we loaded our car with snorkel…

Weekend in Batemans Bay – ptanphoto – Underwater Photography Article

Weekend in Batemans Bay – ptanphoto My mum came to visit, so we went for a long weekend down in Batemans Bay.

The storm clouds from the day before still hung low above the horizon, but as the sun started to rise, the…

How is it winter already? – ptanphoto – Underwater Photography Article

How is it winter already? – ptanphoto 2017 is zooming us by. I can’t believe it’s just a few days more before winter arrives in the Southern hemisphere. Looking at the number of photographs I’ve taken so far this year, my output has fallen quite a bit. Indeed, I haven’t felt that driven to go out for sunrise shoots, or just shoots in general. I could probably point to more than half a dozen reasons why this is the case,…

Checking off our first open water swims – ptanphoto – Underwater Photography Article

Checking off our first open water swims – ptanphoto At the end of last year, we resolved that we would try an open water swim in Sydney. The 1.5km Manly to Shelly (and back) swim seemed like the easiest bet. Last weekend seemed a good time to check off that bucket list. Winter is fast approaching; already, the water temperature is a fresh 20 Celsius. We’d a string of sunny days too and gentle swell in the weather report, so we…
