K'gari & Hervey Bay
Having lived in Hervey Bay since 2008, Michael has enjoyed photographing everything the local environment has to offer - from World Heritage listed K'gari (Fraser Island), to the local jetties and piers through to the abundance of wildlife. A perfect addition to your home or office.
Following his main passions quickly led Michael to ocean photography and the humpback whale is now his favourite subject. Both above and below the water this collection of images showcases the beauty, wonder and fascinating behaviours of these gentle giants of the sea.
Lady Elliot Island
Lady Elliot Island is the southern most coral cay of the Great Barrier Reef. An absolute ocean paradise, Michael has photographed here extensively both privately and while running photography tours. This collection of images is a visual celebration of the many wonders of the ocean.
New Zealand calls loudly to many wilderness lovers but possibly the loudest to Nature Photographers! Snow capped mountains, mesmerising reflections, untouched wilderness and enchanting wildlife keep you in a total state of awe, no matter the season or weather conditions.
From the deserts of central Australia to the stunning waters of Tahiti, this collection of images has developed right across Michael's career. When travelling, he takes a simple approach of creating images of what inspires him in the moment - rather than searching for a particular shot.
Michael has won numerous awards on both a national and international level. In 2018 he achieved Master of Photography with the (now closed) AIPP and in 2019 one of his images won a Silver Medal in the World Photographic Cup helping Team Australia win the competition for the first time!
