Darling downs, qld. australia... _____________________________________

what a wild 2 days it's been storm chasing over the last 48 hours! we had an inkling there maybe some severe storms & decided to do a family trip chasing around the downs.

day 1 brought with it some amazing structure around millmerran as you can see in the 2nd image while day 2 (yesterday) brought with it an incredible light show around chinchilla/dalby at sunset. this maybe our last chase for the season as we are back off to the arctic circle for 2 months of photography & @dreamphotographyworkshops on christmas day.

we had so much fun chasing with @boos_country_photography @danmahonyphotography @gclightchaser & @jpdpro_photography. thanks for your friendship & help this season.
big thanks to @strikefinderphoto too!
their sf2 is the reason we've captured so many bolts this season. if you are interested in one they are just $129us & just click on the link in our bio & put in "dkphotography" as the coupon code to get $5usd off.

Wanaka, new zealand... _____________________________________

every so often you capture an image at a place that has never been shot before...this however...is not that place 😂

but should we not photograph it? of course we should. there is nothing wrong with photographing something this beautiful and there is a reason so many people shoot here. let’s hope it’s preserved now for many more years to come.
join us here on our next workshop - click the link in our bio for more info! 😎

Mt cook, new zealand... _____________________________________

we are so excited to be heading back here next year for our 9 day @dreamphotographyworkshops winter nz tour & can finally share this image with you.

we've been trying to capture this image (before it was cool lol) for almost 6 years now. every year we've either had bad weather or couldn't get the car lights just right or in one frame. it's a much harder image to nail then one would think & it took multiple attempts to get this right on a morning when the sky literally burst with colour.

this is actually one of the many stops on our nz workshop & if you'd like to join @hamishstubbs & ourselves for the trip of a lifetime that includes daily tuition with mastering composition, light & framing as well as photoshop tutorials on a guided tour designed for both amateur & professional alike, click the link in our bio for more info if you’d like to join us! 😎

Hooker valley, new zealand... _____________________________________

over the 7+ years we’ve been travelling to nz, we’ve gone at different times of the year to find that ‘perfect month’. without a doubt for us, it’s the winter month of july. don’t get us wrong, we love the lupins in summer & the autumn colours around arrowtown, but nothing’s more special than a massive dusting of snow over mt cook. it’s an incredible sight to see!
with this frame we were hoping to capture something a little different to the norm. we waited until astronomical blue hour to capture this reflection but it’s the snow covered rocks that makes this shot so special.
if you’d like to join us here next year in july, we’ve just launched our first nz workshop & we’ve already sold half of the spots for this 9 day winter @dreamphotographyworkshops tour already, so click on the link in our bio for more info if you’d like to join us!

Milford sound, new zealand.... _____________________________________

milf! milf! milf……ord!
how good is this place?! this is one of our fav places to photograph in nz. the surrounding fjords are like no where else on this planet. even hollywood chose this spot for last years hit ‘alien: covenant’ for it’s unworldly landscape. it rains here more than anywhere else on earth too so a clear sky sunset like this was a welcome treat for the usual foggy/overcast scene you see all too often.

we are pretty excited that this is also where we will be taking our guests on our 2019 @dreamphotographyworkshops in july for our winter nz 9 day tour with @hamishstubbs. if you’d like to join us, click on the link in our bio for more info!

Queenstown, new zealand.... _____________________________________

today we are so pleased to announce our first ‘new zealand 9 day @dreamphotographyworkshops’!!! together with nz local @hamishstubbs, we will be exploring & capturing the very best images the south island has to offer. while most workshops here are only offering 4-6 days & exclude popular places like milford sound, nugget point, moeraki boulders & the catlins waterfalls, we want you to get the most of your nz adventure. at 9 days & at almost the same cost, we will vist all the iconic & usual spots as well as some other hidden gems.

we are pretty excited for this as its taken us years in the making, obtaining the right permits as well as finding new locations you may not have known existed. this will be a great opportunity to expand your photographic portfolio whether you are a beginner, intermediate or an experienced photographer. places are limited & we’ve already sold a few places via pre-registration, so don’t miss out! click the link in our bio if you’re interested!
this is an 18 image pano shot from the top of the remarkables overlooking queenstown. this was one of the most memorable nights in nz we’ve ever had!

Aldeyjarfoss, iceland... _____________________________________

it's a spot very special to us & one you don't see photographed enough as its tucked away & often overlooked by the famous godafoss down the road. but what makes these bridal veil falls so beautiful are the black basalt columns that surround the falls & even more so, the displacement of water as it cascades across the coved inlet if you time your shutter speed right.

we actually almost forgot we had this image. we'd been saving it for a rainy day but silly us completely forgot lol. we'd actually went there hoping to get a dark & moody image but little did we know the eruption of colour that would splash across the sky at sunset. winner winner!

experience this yourself! we have 1 spot left for next years 10 day @dreamphotographyworkshops, click on this link in our bio to join us! 😎

Bruarfoss, iceland.... _____________________________________

remember the first time you experienced something special for the first time? we were asked at the @cameraproau video & timelapse festival in brisbane last weekend: "when was the first time you guys experienced the northern lights & how did it feel". well, it was a bit like losing your virginity for us... it was an adrenaline rush that we were not prepared for & it was all over much faster than we'd have liked. okay, so probably not the best comparison 😝 but by all means it was so overwhelming. in fact, that afternoon we just crashed our drone (mr local dji reseller: "its a volcanic area so the magnetic interference would have caused the crash {laughs}" - us: "pfft, of course ..cos we have volcanos back home in australia lol” 😂

so we had our poo pants on, we were discussing our options as we walked back from bruarfoss & karlie was ranting away & for those that remember the jurassic park scene where sam neil turns laura dern's head to see the obvious brachiosaurus while she yaps away blissfully unaware, i did the same to karlie 🦕😱 we both looked up & stood there for 5 mins just in awe of the aurora's incredible beauty. this was & will always be, our favourite night in the arctic.

Walgett, nsw. australia... _____________________________________

yesterday afternoon we headed out storm chasing again with @hsc_thomas to central nsw as we'd been watching some models over the past few days & it looked set to drop bombs over the plains.
after an 8 hour drive out to walgett it was an anxious wait to see if it paid off. just before sunset it went bonkers! over 500km's wide it came with hail, damaging winds & a ground scraping shelf cloud turning up dust in its path. this image was taken with the @strikefinderphoto 2 & its been a blessing in disguise. one of the best lightning triggers on the market & it captured these 2 bolts in frame as they crashed over the dry & barren australian outback.

if you do photograph lightning & would like to purchase one, please click on the link & put in "dkphotography" as the coupon code to get $5 usd off.

Akranes, iceland... _____________________________________

we've never got a good image from this lighthouse, especially with aurora. and on our recent @dreamphotographyworkshops trip in september our guests were treated to this incredible display of the northern lights, so we looked for a good composition & this puddle of water made for some great foreground interest. we even focus stacked the rocks to give a sharp image throughout. we’re pretty happy with how this turned out but think we can improve with an even better display of the green lady. till next time!

Kirkjufellsfoss, iceland…

_____________________________________

on a dark & stormy afternoon, there wasn't a tourist in sight (i know right?!), so we jumped out of our camper and took some concrete and toughened up in the cold and wet conditions 😝 using the @nisifiltersaustralia 6 stop we went for a long exposure.

Fjaðrárgljúfur, iceland... _____________________________________

fjaðrárgljúfur is a canyon in south east iceland that no tourist can ever pronounce. it’s up to 100m deep & about 2 kilometres long, with the fjaðrá river flowing through it (yeah good luck with that name too 😜). the canyon has steep walls & winding water & its origins date back to the cold periods of the ice age... last chance - 15% off nisi filters & sirui tripods! contact us for a quote, as it ends midnight tonight!
