TAHITI’S TAHA’A ISLAND – AS GOOD AS IT GETS

This was the view I arrived to at my over-water bungalow at Tahiti’s Taha’a Island, and what an amazing four days of shooting we’ve just had. I’m on my way back to Australia now so I’ll post some pictures shortly. To my son, a quick message: This is where your inheritance is going. What a...

LUNCH WITH THE STINGRAYS IN TAHITI

Ok, now this is an exceptional experience.
First we swum with the stingrays in a stunning turquoise lagoon bordering Tahiti’s Moorea Island. I spent two hours in the water, hugely entertained as the metre wide stingrays gently danced around us (sometimes over us) – often three at a time.

Early morning yoga, some ariels, a bit of underwater stuff and, hopefully, some nice light...

Oh, I lamented, the time I could have saved, the mistakes I may have avoided and the photographs I might have captured, if only I’d been given the opportunity to learn from the photographer I am today.
