Taking my images to a new level has always interested me. Working with photoshop I have at my hands a powerful tool. Not knowing what to do with photoshop except the basics of editing of my images, I wanted to learn more about what it had to offer. Some research and education has allowed me to create these images. With more knowledge about these tools I am ready to step into another realm of taking my photography to the next level.

Gerard and Josie Collins, Queanbeyan NSW. Gerard a child hood and long time friend who asked me to photograph his important day. What an honor it was. Josie looked stunning and so did her bridesmaids. Gerard and his groomsmen also did an awesome job. It was great to catch up and share these images, as it was easy to get caught up in the atmosphere of it all and even the emotion got the better of me. Really had a blast on this one.

Nathan and Rebecca's Wedding. Out door ceremony up at the Wiradjuri Study Center which provided a great backdrop to what I had captured. I wanted to get some shots around old rustics buildings and the old vane tempest provided that, followed by a shoot out at the lake. Rebecca looked gorgeous along with her bridesmaids to pull of a stunning wedding.

The Railways stations, the once go to if you wanted to get somewhere, a Place of Meeting and greeting, A place of sadness and tears, Once where a journey started for someone, and where a journey would end. A once Vibrant and Alive place. Now with the decline of the Railway lines, it is just a shell, left with History and a Past. These images are my take on what it is now. A ghostly feel, and do you get the feeling that someone is with you at the station. eerie but true.

I had the opportunity to Document and Photograph a ceremony of a Re-burial of a "Wiradjuri Man" dating back to more then a few or more thousand years. What a way to keep my ancestral blood flowing, a once in a life time opportunity and I am Privileged to have been a part of it. Thanks to Lewis Coe and ceremonial parties/protocols for making it possible. This re-burial is pretty significant in Aboriginal Culture and our connection to the land and spiritual ancestors. Thanks to Lewis Coe for allowing me to up load this powerful image of him. Due to the sensitivity of the day, I am only able to put 1 image up until permission is given by other parties to do so.

Condobolin Debutaunt Ball 2012. A very rewarding shoot and an opportunity to play around with a location and apetures on my camera. The Location was the old Tar Water Tower in Condobolin. When I mention to the parents and the young ladies that's where I wanted to shoot. A look of confusion was seen on each face's. As we gathered for the shoot I straight away they felt at ease and not knowing what I wanted to achieve with the shots. The final results speak for themselves and I am happy with what I got. I wanted to work with my apetures  (AV) on camera and got it right the 1st time. It also helped having great subjects/models to shoot as I have known most of these young ladies most of their lives and it shows in the images. Thanks ladies for letting me be a part of something special. Courtney Escreet, Nadana Clarke, Kadisha Brandy and Latoya Kirby.
