Profile

Neal is a professional international landscape photographer, based in Australia. His passion for landscape photography and desire to achieve the very best possible image through research and time dedication on location waiting for just the right light in which to photograph the scene is unmatched.

Twice each day mother nature shines with her warm light. At either dusk or dawn the colors of nature come into brilliance, showcasing the land, sea and sky.

Capturing that light is a passion of mine that seems to grow stronger with each passing shoot. To capture mother natures light and the beauty she unfolds has become my absorbing pursuit and I hope it also highlights that we don’t own this world we are merely here to witness its beauty in all shapes and forms.

Photographing in the early and late afternoon allows me to use minimal digital manipulation. While I do use neutral density filters to even out bright skies and darker land scenes. I do not use any colored filters rather I let mother nature show her beauty through color and form.

Neal’s landscape photography has been recognised internationally through international photographic competitions with 6 Silver and 3 bronze awards . I am thrilled to receive these awards for my first ever entry into any photographic competition with the competitions drawing entires worldwide from over 900 photographers.

Darryn Santich - So glad I made a last minute decision to go on the Incredible Iceland tour 2015. Neal and Clint organised a fantastic itinerary which included all the incredible landscapes I had only ever dreamed of seeing. They’re knowledge they handed to me on landscape photography was immense and I have walked away with a greater ability to compose and light landscape photography. I exspecially liked the Arora Borealis they got us too on the second last night. The only spot in the whole of Iceland cloud free and we had an awesome K5.5 storm to shoot for 4 hours. What a blast. Thanks Neal and Clint , I have already recommended others to join your next excursion to Iceland in 2016

Trent Konstantinu -  The Incredible Tour of Iceland in 2015 was an amazing experience!  Neal & Clint were fantastic guides and they were able to take us to all the spectacular postcard locations in Iceland and several hidden little gems that tour groups do not go too.  They helped me a lot with developing my photography skills and instructed me on how best to compose the best shot.  They took care of everything which allowed me to just focus on taking a truck load of photos and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.  The trip was a lot of fun and Neal & Clint were easy to get along with.  I would highly recommend anyone going on a tour with this experienced pair of photographers.

Dale Frank - The three day Great Ocean Road Workshop with Neal has completely changed the way I take my photographs and also post process my images.
Would recommend Neal’s workshops to anyone who wishes to get more out of their photography.

Ricardo .C - ”Thank you Neal for the one-on-one workshop today. Your approach was effective and nothing was left out and I appreciate you ensuring that you answered all of my questions. Was definitely worth the small investment”

Michael Taylor Education and Training Co-ordinator Busselton Camera Club - The one day workshop was a real hit with our members. It was interesting and ‘hands on’ and the way you used some of their own images taken during the day and made them ‘pop’ by applying minimal post processing was both inspirational and educational.

Jill Fisher - ”It was a wonderful workshop and my first time visiting Great Ocean Road. Although I’m not exactly a beginner, Neal was a very good instructor and always very helpful when needed. I would recommend anyone who wants to photograph this part of the world to join one of Neal’s workshops, he knows the area very well and has a passion for landscapes and it shows”.

David Lanigan -”The one day course with Neal was both enjoyable and informative. Neal was very hands on for the entire process –  from camera settings and helping frame your shot, to the post processing techniques used to bring your images to life. Questions were not a problem and everything was answered thoroughly in a friendly manner.”
