Sigma 24-105mm f4 OS HSM DG Review

I got my hands on a sigma 24-105mm f4 OS HSM DG to review and I compared it to my favourite walking around lens, the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L.  This is a fantastic lens and for anyone looking for a good all-rounder I would highly recommend it! Watch the video to see my full verdict and check out the comparative images below to form your own opinion! All these images are straight out of the camera. The only thing done to them is that they were RAW files and then converted to JPEG and watermarked using Lightroom. No sharpening was applied and...

Switzerland Pt3 – Back in Zurich!

Switzerland Pt3 – Back in Zurich!

Part 1 Part 2   After only one full day in the Black Forest we were on our way back to Zurich, and just in time too! After two days of absolutely beautiful weather, the morning we were being picked up it started bucketing down! We arrived back at the B2 Boutique Hotel & Spa and were informed that the majority of retail shops were closed on Sundays, so we decided to take advantage of our Spa discount and indulge in the Irish-roman spa ritual which takes two hours and is set out over ten stages. Unfortunately, no cameras were allowed...

Switzerland Pt2: Germany!

Part 1 Part 3 After Two days in Switzerland we were picked up by our driver to start our journey to the black forest. It was supposed to be a self-driving tour with a pre-programmed GPS unit but since Violet doesn’t have a licence and I haven’t driven in two years and never on the other side of the road with the steering wheel on the other side of the car, I didn’t feel all that confident driving up a mountain in a top of the line Mercedes convertible. Thankfully the owner of the company who organised the driving tour was...

Switzerland Pt1

Part 2  Part 3   So I had the pleasure of visiting Switzerland for about 10 days two weeks ago and during that ten days I took 1054 photos. That was cut down to 339 favorites, which was then cut down to 225 great shots which was then cut down to 142 “want to post these” which then became 95 “ok, just these ones” and after even more culling the magic number I landed on was…61! But I think that might be too much photo spam so I’ll try to cut it down even further, or not, maybe you want to see MORE Zurich....

First Weekend With The 5D Mark II

Last weekend my parents and brother came down to visit Melbourne from Brisbane which is always fun because: a) I love to see my family -and- b) I love to show off Melbourne I think they would love living here but they ALWAYS come in the middle of winter when it’s just miserably cold and grey. Unfortunately that’s also when the footy season is and my dad is a big Collingwood fan (go the pies!). I’m getting off track. This time when they came down they had a HUGE present for me! I have now switched to Canon because they bought...

Canberra & The Human Brochure Pt1

From the 15th to the 17th Canberra tourism invited a bunch of people to see the nations capital through the Human Brochure project. If you’re not from Australia then let me fill you in, if you’re not a politician you don’t go to Canberra. When I told people that I was going to Canberra the usual response was “why?”. Even the locals say that Canberra is only known for the three P’s: Pyrotechnics Porn Politicians That’s because it used to be the only place in Australia that you could buy fireworks...

High Fashion Photoshoot with Celina of Fables In Fashion

The other day we were invited out to assist with the a video shoot for Celina of Fables in Fashion. Just incase you haven’t heard of her, she is an amazing YouTuber who does really inspiring makeup how-to’s with a story behind each look. The location was the Port of Melbourne at the end of an old wooden pier and while they were finishing up and getting the last few shots they needed for the cinematic she had a big flowy piece of fabric that was going every which way in the wind. It looked just like an ad for Chanel, Vogue, Louis...

Blurb Photobook Review

. . Being self employed has it’s perks. The comute is short. Breaks when you want them. Don’t have to wear pants. Little things that you just can’t seem to get away with when you work a 9-5. But there is just one MAJOR draw back. Consistent income. You can be working flat out for a months and then it will just die and you won’t have anything going on. This is why banks still refuse us for home loans despite being self employed for about 4 years now and never once being late with a rent payment. So every few months when...
