There’s world class low-light photography happening here. Come and capture some photons in a technical photoshoot deep underground…

Timelapse: Tumultuous Tasmania

If a picture is worth a 1000 words, what will 65 000 pictures tell you?
If you have a few minutes spare, I invite you to watch this timelapse piece I’ve been working on tirelessly for the past 8 months. My aim is simple. To showcase the beauty of Tasmania through my passion for photography. This is my first attempt at such a project, and it is a huge and ongoing learning experience. Comments are welcomed.
