Imagery and Photography

Photography is a pursuit I have enjoyed for decades, but seldom find the time for, other than collecting technical imagery to support my academic or professional research work. Especially, I enjoy nature photography, and Australia's diverse habitats present many interesting opportunities for both wildlife and landscapes.

I continue to use 6 x 4.5 medium format wet film cameras (645AFD,
M645/1000S), as well as digital cameras (currently a Nikon D7100). I also frequently use manual focus Mamiya 645 medium format lenses on Nikon DSLR bodies, with exceptionally good results.

The following webpages contain selected samples from my archive of imagery, and one collection of imagery by my colleague Chris Mills.
