I am an environmental consultant from Victoria in southern Australia (previously Queensland Australia). I am a botanist originally, but have been interested in nature and nature photography for years. I own a Canon EOS 600D with a range of lenses, and a Nikon Coolpix AX130 which allows me to take underwater photographs, but many of my earlier photographs are from a range of cameras of lesser ability, including Canon EOS 400D and Canon SX100 IS. I have also done a lot of video with a Panasonic MX 300. I work mainly internationally, so travel a lot to all parts of the world (see map) which is great for photography.

My late colleague and partner, Audrey Bendus, has also taken a number of the photographs on this site with her Canon Powershot SX210 and more recently a Canon T3i Rebel. Those photos are identified in the comments. Unfortunately, Audrey passed away in January of 2016. I dedicate this site to her memory.
