BIOGRAPHY
I have been taking photos now for over 20 years. I still haven't lost the passion and am definately still learning as most photographers will also say. I have been shooting professionally on and off now for several years with a bit of a break when my equipment was stolen a few years ago, but now I am back into it full swing, shooting sports, product, commercial and portrait/portfolio work. (One day I will get out and do some more landscapes for me LOL) During my time off from shooting, I spent a lot of time in photo.net, learning from some wonderful photographers on here as well as trying to keep inspired. While on my "break" I also endevoured to improve my photoshop and digital workflow skills, it has been a steep learning curve coming from film and darkroom, but I have recognised now that photoshop is just another tool to make a final print, no different to some of the techniques I used to use in the darkroom, the main difference is that I am not sucking up all those fumes for hours on end. Thanyou to Phil G for creating this website, it truly is a fantastic site to improve your photography skills or at worst be inspired by some awesome photography. Mike Brown Melbourne Australia

Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo Australia. Started in 1901 and finally completed in 1977.

THe wall at the HMAS Sydney Memorial in Geraldton Western Aus, I liked the way the morning light was reflecting off the wall. The graininess in the wall was the granite, not from the camera.

Great Save

He nearly lost control here, we told him to keep his feet on the pegs when jumping and he was fine after that.

He was really starting to get confident with these jumps, getting higher each time, and notice...feet are on the pegs
