Here are some of the links we recommend to help improve your photography (or at least make it easier and more enjoyable) -

Sony cameras are brilliant, especially for Travel Photography. They have a great range of DSLR and Mirrorless cameras & lenses. We currently shoot with the mirrorless Sony A7r,  A7ii and a6000.

Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop in combination with some of the plug-ins below are all you will ever really need for the ultimate digital darkroom.

Peak Design make great products. We currently us the Slide Strap, Capture & Shell products. Check out their products and if you are interested in purchasing use the link above. For orders over USD$65.00 you will also receive a FREE gift.

NiSi Filters make awesome filters for all levels of photography. They have a comprehensive range of screw-in round filters and square filter system. We have been using these for a while now and absolutely love them. For Australian delivery addresses, we can offer discounts. Contact us for details.

ON1 software has to be one of the leaders of image editing software at the moment. Their products are easy to use and the results are awesome. Practically all of our images are processed using this wonderful software.
MacPhun: Aurora HDR 2018 and Luminar Neptune are also very useful editing software and work as stand-alone products. The Aurora HDR 2018 is the best HDR software currently on the market. It's a one-stop-shop for HDR shooters who want to align, blend and stylise in one application. You can order the 2018 version which has even more great features over the 2017 version at a great price.  In the past, this software has only been available to MAC users however that has changed with the latest release for PC. Click here to order Aurora HDR 2018. Upgrades prices are also available if you have previous versions.

Topaz Labs have awesome image enhancement plug-ins. We currently use Studio, Adjust, InFocus, Lens Effects, Detail, Glow, Texture Effects, Clean, Clarity, B&W Effects, ReMask, ReStyle & Simplify. Some of the apps are also Standalone and all can now be accessed through the amazing Studio app.

Producers of Photomatix Pro software. Excellent tool for processing HDR images. Receive a 15% discount by using "widescenes" in the coupon code when purchasing.

We have been using LowePro camera bags for a long time and they are extremely durable and well designed. Try to buy a bag with AW after the model as this means it has a very handy little raincoat built into the bag. We also strongly recommend the Sling Bags however only the SlingShot & Photo Sports models have the AW option.

Manfrotto tripods are great. We have been using a 055 tripod with a ball & socket head for 20 years. Look after them and they will never let you down. This link is to the Australian site. 

Joby makes the GorillaPod, which is an excellent little flexible tripod that allows you to take some really great shots when you don't want to carry around your larger tripod. It has its limitations but nevertheless, it is a great tool for using in places where erecting a full-size tripod is a problem.

Google Nik Collection is excellent software. We own the suite and especially love their Sharpener Pro 3.0, Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro. They are now owned by Google and you can download the suite for FREE at
