I have too many hobbys – Warhammer V Songs of Blades and Heroes.   2 comments

I have not posed here in a very long time – I am still taking photos – but have been lazy and just putting them on my facebook page.

Photography is not my only hobby – I also play with little toy soldiers – more correctly I paint wargame figures – I rarely actually play the games – as I just did not have the time – working on changing that – after I acquired some vintage warhammer Orc and Goblin figures – talking to a few friends – looks like it is time to play some vintage warhammer – thinking 4/5th edition (it is currently up to 8th edition).

So going through what I already own – I found these painted figures that have not seen the light of day for a few years.

They were based for a skirmish fantasy game Songs of Blades and Heroes – so now thinking do I rebase them or not for old style Warhammer.

First up is some Warhammer “Big Uns”

A Orc Shaman – and two Black Orcs ( one of them is probably to modern for the Army look I m after).

And amongst the Orcs I found this Warhammer High Elf Mage – notsure what his future is – maybe sell to get more Orcs.

Retro Beach Babes   Leave a comment

I had the opportunity to photograph the Gasolina Pin-Up Girls on the weekend – check out there facebook page for more about them.

We had a lot of fun they are great to work with and being on the Sunny Gold Coast what would be better then a Beach shoot.

We turned one into a “Merry Christmas” Card for their website

We also took the opportunity while they were still in swimsuits to get some waterfall shots.

These shots were all taken with a Canon 6D and 100mm Macro lens, showing what a great portrait lens it is as well.

We will definitely be catching up with the Gasolina Girls again soon for some more shoots.

Bugs in Paradise !   1 comment

I spent the last few days out at Mount Barney staying at the lakeside cottage at Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages

It was a few days in paradise – lots of things to see and do – with Macro being my favourite Photography currently – thought I would start with some of the bugs I got there.

Macro – spiders and flys on the verandah   1 comment

Early last Sunday morning, I went for a walk in the garden and surrounding yard and was not finding much at all to photograph – so walking back to come inside along the verandah, on the post at the top of the stairs I see a little spider and while I am photographing him – a fly lands as well.

First up two photos of Jumping Spiders with a little flying any as prey.

GreazeFest 2013 Rocks – VW’s – post 1   Leave a comment

I went to GreazeFest on the weekend for the first time – had a great time there, saw a lot of cool cars – finally getting a chance to start looking through the photos tonight.

Decided for something different would go through one style of car at a time – so starting with the VW’s – obviously “Rat Rod” is the popular theme.

Will try and post at least one set a day – and will be adding these and other photos to my facebook photography page as well.

Some more Zombie Goodness   Leave a comment

Ok – my personal life has been interfering with my photography and have not been out much.

So I thought it was time to re visit some recent photos, that I only quickly went through at time.

So thought I would go back to my walk at Kangaroo point Brisbane a few weeks back and edit some more of the Zombie photos, have since discovered they were done through the excellent skills of Brian and Sammi and hope to get the opportunity to photograph more of their brilliant work in the future.
