Having lived in Sydney’s eastern suburbs for 15 years now I am fortunate to have access to some of the best coastal photography locations in Australia along with the close by Sydney Harbour.
I frequently photograph many of the iconic Sydney locations that are familiar to people all around the world. Being an avid traveller, I have travelled to over 90 countries around the globe across 6 continents. Whilst travelling, I also get to showcase my images of Sydney to people I meet and receive many comments like “I would like to go there”.
Luckily enough, I do get to regularly head out in the early hours of the day to try to capture those amazing sky colours or see what might behold in the afternoons at sunset.
Being a professional photographer I like to dedicate some of my time for leisure shoots where I can enjoy my craft and have some quiet time to be able to take those moments in.
It is amazing with a city that has a population of almost 5 million to be on a beach in the morning with just a few other lucky souls to see those mornings that people say they wish they were awake to see.
Photography isn’t always about the gear you use, but having some nice hardware is great to be able to capture these slices of time that just don’t get repeated. I usually have a few lenses and camera bodies with me to shoot different moments.
Even those cool winter mornings can be stunning as you watch the wave’s crash on to the beach and the surfers heading out to get a quick wave before their day gets started.
Another favourite time to shoot is when the golden light hits in the evenings to capture everyone during their workouts, walks, dog exercising or just generally out to enjoy the day. You’ll often see mobile phones come out to try to get a lasting memory.
Long summer days are ideal to be able to spend some more time out enjoying the Sydney lifestyle exploring for potential new shooting locations and watching others enjoy the light.
Sydney is a great place to live and I can say it is definitely one of the best places in the world to see.
