QUICK UPDATE:


Hello All!  Hope you're all feeling creative and 2010 is treating you well!

Had another great trip to the States over Christmas and enjoyed getting back to New York and skiing in arctic temperatures in Lake Placid. Good times!! :)


Had a couple of images nominated for the Black & White Spider Awards back in January which was pretty cool. Here's the official press release and nominated images....

One of my mentors and role models, Diana Snape, - www.snapephoto.com.au - recently launched a commercial Australian Stock Library and kindly invited me on board. Assisting a photographer of this calibre is one thing, but being invited to contribute personal work to their site is awesome!
After many hours of spotting, de-noising and correcting chromatic aberrations and the like I'm happy to report I have almost 100 hi-res images now on the site! :) It's early days in terms of making money from it but hopefully it's a worthy investment of time and energy - and why not dust off all those old, un-posted images and shine a little light on them anyway. :)

If you look VERY closely you might even see a few you recognize ;)

All the best! Be good, and keep shooting! ~ Gary  :)
