Bay Of Fires, North East Coast Of Tasmania…

The Bay of Fires in North East Tasmania is a very beautiful location just short drive from Launceston. It was named ‘the Bay of Fires’ in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux sailing in the Adventure, after spotting the fires of the Aboriginal people dotting the beaches. Another great spot for road testing my new 5DSR……

Strahan, West Coast Tasmania…

After leaving Cradle Mountain we decided to explore a little part of the west coast of Tasmania, before heading on a rather long loop all the way back to Launceston. Stopping in Strahan, we had lunch at the local Banjo’s cafe, part of a pretty good chain of bakeries found throughout Tasmania, before setting off…

Liffey Falls, Tasmania…

Liffey Falls are situated some 55 minutes drive from the city of Launceston, and are arguably one of Tasmania’s most stunning waterfalls. Grabbing my new 5DSR I followed the signs out of the city and after a couple of detours due to road closures, I arrived at the picnic area car park. Be aware if…

Evaluating The Canon 5DSR in Tasmania…

As would be apparent from my previous post, I very recently added the Canon 5DSR to my equipment arsenal as I have several upcoming projects for which I really will need the increased resolution that it offers. I was also lucky enough to have a trip to Tasmania planned (part work, part holiday) during which…

Long Exposures With The Canon 5DSR…

Of course the irony of buying a 50 megapixel camera to then shoot a minimalist image is not lost on me, however having just acquired my new ‘toy’ I decided to give it a thorough workout on my trip to Tasmania. I purchased the camera because I produce very large architectural and landscape panorama’s, and…

Architectural Fine Art Photography in Dubai

Dubai is such an incredibly interesting city for the architectural photographer, and although I captured this back in 2013, I have only just begun to work on this ‘fine art’ series. A long exposure works well in situations where the sky is filled with interesting clouds, and in this instance it feels to me as…

New Beginnings For Old Tyres…

Following on from my last post, these images depict the use of recycled rubber tyres as sporting surfaces. I was asked to document not only the construction of a couple of different sports parks around Melbourne, but also to show the product in successful use at the Newport athletics track. The diversity of subjects that…

Melbourne Industrial Photography…With Horses…!

The following images are from a recent series that I have been working on for a fantastic client called Tyrecycle. As their name suggests, they turn old discarded tyres into a range of different products, essentially new beginnings for old tyres! Once the tyres have been processed the end result is a rubber crumb that…

Hiking to Mount Cook, New Zealand…

This panoramic view is a throwback to our time in New Zealand at the beginning of last year. Sadly I am still yet to process all of the images, which is a not uncommon occurrence as client work naturally takes precedence. And I also still have to finish going through all of the Europe images…

The Gherkin in London…

Another ‘fine art’ long exposure shot from my trip to London last year. So much fun to be had photographing the Gherkin, as 30 St Mary Axe is affectionately known… Notice the stains from the rain…must be interesting to keep the glass clean…!

Australian Landscape Photography…

Although I make my living as primarily an architectural, commercial and industrial photographer, I always feel it is essential to get out and shoot personal projects as much as possible. Consequently a couple of weeks ago we bundled our rotten pooch (meaning much loved and thoroughly spoiled dog) into the car and headed to Anglesea…

Gibsons Beach Dawn…

I have just posted this image on Instagram, but thought I would take the opportunity to post it here as well. These two stacks are known as Gog and Magog and are part of the famous 12 Apostles limestone formations on the Great Ocean Road. These formations are obviously being constantly eroded by the elements,…

Another Fine Art Black And White Of London…

This was another image captured on same day as my previous post. Once again it is a long exposure image, converted to black and white and it looks superb as a fine art print (if I do say so myself!?!)…

London Architecture in Black and White…

I captured this image last year on a an all too brief visit to London; this was very early on a Sunday morning wandering around the deserted City of London financial district armed with my tripod and a batch of ND filters…

Melbourne Industrial Photographer…

Once again I have been very fortunate indeed to have been interviewed for an article on Industrial Photography in this month’s edition of Australian Photography Magazine (March 2016), which features two of my images (more of which can of course be seen on my website http://www.michaelevansphotographer.com). Following the publication last year of theĀ  article on…

A Photographer In Rome; a guide to a few days in the Eternal City…

Over the years I have been asked specifically about what camera equipment I take with me when traveling, which is of course quite different from my usual assortment of kit when photographing a commercial or industrial project. Having recently returned from a European adventure, I thought I would take the opportunity to combine a post…

End Of An Experiment…

Last October I undertook a personal project with this blog, whereby I decided to post an image every day for a period of 3 months. The aim was to give myself a simple project that would be fun, and also would ensure that I continued to process my way through the immense collection of images…

Looking Out Over Florence…

Gazing out over Florence from the top of Giotto’s Bell Tower I simply could not resist capturing this multi image panorama; considering it is almost 180 degrees there is of course a degree of distortion, however given the incredible detail in the image, it is a shortcoming I can overlook… More travel images can be…
