The Beauty of Ice

Having spent a lot of time in the Himalaya, I have seen a lot of ice. Nothing prepared me for the simplicity and beauty of Antarctic Ice. The Himlayan stuff is still beautiful. In fact it still takes my breath away every time I visit (you can come with me this year details HERE). Ice in the Polar regions is something special. I am very looking forward to seeing it in the Northern Hemisphere next year (if you want join me). Check out the full gallery of images that makes up my Limited Edition Book, Journey South.

Antarctica Exhibition

Very happy to announce my exhibition opening on June 12th following my trip to Antarctica late last year. Polar Regions are a dream location for any travel photographer and I had the pleasure of traveling with and helping 6 photographers continue on their journey of image making November and December last year. We had some amazing opportunities for landscape and wildlife images and didn’t come away disappointed…..what a trip. Come along and check out some of the images I was able to capture. Would love to see you there….:)

Happy New Year

Well, another year is over. Hope everyone has enjoyed theirs as much as I have mine. It has certainly been another crazy, busy year, but that’s how I like it. Lots to do and the constant feeling of being overwhelmed, grateful and humbled by what I have ahead of me and the places I am fortunate to have visited.

The last 2 months have seen me working in Nepal and Antarctica with 2 groups of photographers wanting to improve their craft, and what fantastic groups they were.

For now I am resting up and working hard (at the same time of course) on the Gold Coast, looking forward to another great year that I have no doubt 2015 will be. Hope you all have had a great one and looking forward to the next one. Above all stay safe and have fun…J

Take care

Damian

Travel Photography Presentation

Join me on September 18 at Back Track Adventure Travels for an evening presentation on how to best approach travel photography including information on equipment choices, carrying your gear, preparing for different weather conditions and of course being in the right place at the right time to get the ultimate shot.

Having had the opportunity to film and photograph in many diverse environments from shooting wildlife and landscapes in the national parks and deserts in Africa, the jungles of Papua New Guinea on the Kokoda Track and the high Himalaya of Nepal, I have been fortunate enough to learn through experience what is needed to not only get the ‘shot’, but to come home with equipment that still operates.

Working with Mark Robinson, an adventure consultant from Backtrack Adventure Travel we will also be sharing details about 3 planned tours perfect for photographers, to Nepal, Africa and Antarctica. I look forward to seeing you there. Please follow THIS LINK to book your spot today. This is a free event!!
