Byron bay, nsw. australia...
_____________________________________

this supermoon image has been a bucket list shot for us for almost 6 years now & every single year the conditions haven't lined up for us, but not today! 😎

many years ago our @nikonaustralia rep once asked us "what bucket list image can we help you achieve?". without hesitation, this was it. when we woke up feeling a lot better after a nasty virus had us both sick in bed all week & we saw the clouds were clear & the moon rose right on blue hour, we gave them a call & we were given a 600mm lens (a $10k lens), the perfect focal range to capture this shot with our d850.
but when we arrived in byron we realised we had very few places to shoot from. we used photopills (an app) to calculate the correct alignment & elevation & realised there was only one place & it was on a farm approximately 5km from the lighthouse. what we weren't expecting is the property owner to be a famous australian musician.😳 much to our surprise we were given permission to shoot from their property (thank you) & after some hairy moments at sunset when the moon didn't align with the lighthouse & we had to run 50-100m to quickly capture the frame, we finally got it! the moment lasted seconds & while it's not perfect, we were so happy to finally capture it.

a big thanks to nikon @chrisdalton @tedgrambeau @sb4photos for helping make this dream become a reality for us.

it's been two years since karlie and i got engaged under the aurora. last february, we had the pleasure of playing it forward to another couple, philip & @averycosylife from the usa. philip contacted us after seeing our image and wanted to do something very special for his partner. we devised a plan to meet in norway, and while cosette was under the impression she was doing a photography workshop, philip surprised her and popped the question under the aurora. congratulations again philip & cosette, and all the best for your upcoming wedding, and hope you love the photo! 💍 👰 🤵
all of the spots to our norway winter @dreamphotographyworkshops are full, but we do still have 3 spots left for our iceland winter workshop. if you’d like to join us here next year, click the link in our bio 😎

update: yesterday dale was taken into hospital here back in australia. he unfortunately picked up a very bad virus and he was taken in to er as he was passing out and had no energy. he has been released today though and we really appreciate all your kind messages and support and wish dale a speedy recovery.

as for this image, some of you who follow us on ig may remember on our instagram stories when dale captured this on the last day just after our norway workshop ended. the light on this afternoon was crazy! this was one of the last images he captured & hopefully he's back on his feet and shooting again soon.

let us know what you guys think of the image and any well wishes i will pass on to him. 😊

Sakrisøy, norway...
_____________________________________

this was one of the best displays our guests experienced on their 10 day workshop. 😍
we were actually spoiled for choice this night & a few of us who’d already nailed a shot in hamnøy decided to run down the road & get 2 bites of the cherry. you often see images of this house during the day but we wanted something different with the aurora at night - but it was a technically difficult shot.
it was a challenging image to process too with exposure blending & focus stacking but we think we captured the moment as we saw it.
we’ve also announced a 2nd workshop here next year as the first sold out in days! there is only 2 spots left remaining for this 2nd norway winter workshop @dreamphotographyworkshops, so click on the link in our bio for more info!

yeah baby! very groovy! 🌈😎✌🏼 what a crazy looking airport?! 🤔 we've always wanted to capture this, and our first real attempt in september was a failure with all the flowers dead. 🙈💐 a few days ago they were all in full bloom, and with permission, we finally captured it. big thanks to @pilot_320 for hookin' a brother up 🤜🏻🤛🏽 __________________________________________

just when we thought it couldn’t get any better! with a glassy reflection, mother nature decided to provide us with jet streams of aurora to top off this frame!

Abu dhabi, uae...
_____________________________________

from minus 30 to plus 30, what a change in weather in 24 hours!🥶😰 but stopping here in the desert is a welcome change to the snow...especially with curves as sexy as these in the local dunes a few hours out of the city. here you can find your own composition in an ever changing landscape & find art in nature.
one more day here in abu dhabi then after almost 2 months abroad...it's home time to see my 2 favourite girls...karlie & mia. 👩‍👧 __________________________________________

as much as we landscape photographers all love to photograph colour, a dark and moody scene like this one a few days ago is photography p**n for us.
there has been a lot of snow this year and after some heavy snow plowing we took our @dreamphotographyworkshops crew near the waters edge to work on their water movement and timing. we took many different shots but this one was one of our favs.
what do you prefer? moody or colourful scenes?

would you believe we had another night of amazing aurora tonight?! thats 3 times in 10 days for our workshop dream team! 😳

this is one of our favourite places to view the northern lights & more so to photograph as there is no light pollution, no man made objects...simply snowy fjords & green skies. this was a simple composition that worked so well with the shape of the northern lights as it danced over the snowy peaks & reflected in the frozen wet sand.

Hamnøy, norway...
_____________________________________

two days ago we were treated here in @norway to a stunning sunset overlooking the red fisherman cabins of @eliassenrorbuer that we had the pleasure of staying in the last 2 nights as part of our workshop. "it's a cliche shot" some might say...well, you maybe right. but like the wanaka tree of nz & the opera house in australia, it's still a gorgeous location to shoot & still is one of the highlights you'll experience when visiting this quaint, seaside fishing village.

only 3 spots left!!! join us here next year on our 10 day norway @dreamphotographyworkshops in jan/feb 2020, click on this link in our bio for more info ☺️ __________________________________________

last night was another cracking night of aurora & this was one of 4 places we captured one of the most intense displays we've witnessed here to date! 😱

it's a blessing to be able to teach workshops in @lofoten & iceland, but do you know what the best part of our job is? watching the faces of our 8 guests (whom many have come here specifically to see the northern lights for the first time) & witness a local k6 & hear their excitement & watch them cheer as it danced all night over our heads. "this has been the greatest night of my life!" said @embeck83. as far as jobs go...it doesn't get any better than this!

it's so good to be back here! yesterday morning on the 2nd morning of our dream photography workshops, we got some stunning light.

it was no easy feat capturing this image however as there has been a lot of snow fall here in the last few days. in fact, it's the biggest dumping of snow in 20 years & when the roads opened after numerous avalanches closed main roads, we managed to hike through thigh high snow to photograph this incredible winter wonderland. 😍
