I took these photos last Friday afternoon at Nobbys Beach and along the breakwall.
Nobbys is one of my absolute favourite places to photograph in Newcastle and this was the first time I’d been able to go there for a photowalk in about four months because of the Covid-19 restrictions. So I made the most of it and made sure I got there early to enjoy the best light and the sunset and dusk.
It was a great afternoon and I really like how the photos turned out.
I’m pleased to announce that my 2020 calendar is now available for purchase!
The calendar features 12 landscape images from around beautiful Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and The Hunter. All of the photos were taken this year and the calendar includes several photos I haven’t shared before.
I’m very proud of all the photos – they’re some of my very favourites and I think they show different sides of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie which is what I wanted to achieve.
The calendar is A4 size and costs $25, including free postage worldwide. The first 20 calendars will also be signed and include a personal message as a thank you.
You can buy the calendar through my Etsy store or below via PayPal.
Makes a great Christmas gift if I do say so myself! 😉

Went to see Newcastle’s newest tourist attraction yesterday – the Pole!
It all started when Newcastle City Council widened the curb before energy provider Ausgrid moved the power pole. While they’ve been trading blame back and forth, the power pole has been left in the middle of the road and, naturally, it’s gone viral and become a bit of a tourist attraction. It’s even in Google Maps!
I’m sure eventually it’ll be fixed but it was fun seeing it first. A different kind of street photography for me! 🙂
The photography group I run went for a photowalk along Honeysuckle Drive in Newcastle last weekend. It’s one of my very favourite parts of Newcastle, with so much character and fantastic views, and the walk was a lot of fun.
I did the walk as a photo challenge as well. My challenge was to use a 50mm lens which isn’t my favourite focal length for this kind of a shoot – I love a 50mm for portraits but I prefer something a bit wider like a 35mm for street and environmental photography. So it was definitely a challenge but I like how the photos came out overall.
I did both colour and black & white edits as I enjoyed the contrast between them and I wanted to do something a bit different with editing as well. I hope you like them.
Some photos from the ANZAC Memorial Walk in Newcastle. The walkway links Newcastle’s Strzelecki Lookout to Bar Beach and is one of my favourite spots for photos in Newcastle, particularly at sunset. The views are spectacular.
