  • Reflecting on Two Years in the Sony Alpha Ecosystem

    The third of this month marked two years since I took my first foray into the Sony Alpha System. I thought it would be a good idea to look back to see how I’m liking the system and if my views have changed since my 12 month A7III review. Briefly Why I Switched I wont go into great detail as to why I switched since I’ve already explained that in…

  • One Lens Leaves While Another Arrives

    This past weekend, I said goodbye to one lens and hello to another. Recently I posted about selling my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS in favor of the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM. I already went into why I made the switch on my review, so I won’t repeat it here. Despite the fact that the Sony 16-35 GM is one of, if not the best lens I’ve used to…

  • My New Podcast

    Recently I started a second website that will be used to release podcasts and tutorials. I’m happy to say the first episode of one of those podcasts have now launched. If anyone is interested in giving it a listen, here is the link.

  • Introducing The Photography Enthusiast

    After several months of work and planning, I am happy to reveal my project. The Photography Enthusiast will be my new website that I will use to write reviews, tutorials and host a podcast. It’s just a side hobby so I don’t expect it to ever be a huge website with daily content like PetaPixel or DPreview. It will just be my own small space for sharing my opinions and…

  • New Additions

    Recently I got two new lenses (don’t tell my girlfriend). Those are the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art in Sony E Mount and the Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4. When I was shooting Canon and for a period when I started shooting Sony, The Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS was my most used lens. This I found to be both good and bad. The good part of this was that I knew…

  • The Move To Mirrorless

    Back in May of last year, I finally made the move and got myself an A7III. I had wanted a Sony body for quite some time but was hesitant to switch. Before getting into my long-term review, I'll first explain what made me make the switch. When I sold my original Canon 6D, I was left to use my M5 for a little over a month. During that time, I…
  • 2019 Hopes & Dreams

    Happy new year to everyone! I have been excited for this year to start for several reasons. While I discuss my goals for 2019 I thought I’d throw in some images I hadn’t posted last year just to get them out there. The New Focus When I first started photography I was pretty much only interested in one thing, Cityscapes. I done them over and over until I got to the…

  • Making A Return

    It sure has been a long time since I updated my site! In that time, I have been busy moving this site to Bluehost. For those looking for a reliable shared hosting, I am very happy so far with Bluehost. I was previously using VentraIP which is a Melbourne based company and had no issue with their service or hosting, but more so with the value for money. I am…

  • My Experience Photographing A Wedding

    A few weeks ago now, I had the opportunity to be a second shooter at a wedding. Although I have been shooting now for over 6 years, I have never tried to do any kind of paid work. There was a few lessons I learned from this 12 hour event that I found valuable to myself as a photographer. Weddings are REALLY hard work Don’t get me wrong, I never…

  • My First Two Weeks With The Canon EOS 6D Mark II

    The Canon EOS 6D Mark II had quite a controversial release, but that didn’t affect my purchase of this body. For the past two weeks I’ve been using it as much as I can and I have to say, I’m thoroughly impressed. Here’s some of my impressions from my first weeks of using the 6DII. Autofocus As an owner of the original 6D, this was quite a frustrating area. The…
