Landscape Photographer, Darwin, Australia
Hello my name is Will a retired Army Officer about to start a new business and life.
For most of my adult life I have been in the Australian Military. I commenced this career, at 15 years of age, in 1981. Initially with the the Royal Australian Navy serving as a Submariner and then with the Australian Army from 1989. It has been a career with some great memories and some memories I am happy to leave behind. However, I will have to admit that if not for the Army I probably would not have found a love for photography.
I was not interested in Photography, then in 1991 the Army ran a course designed for soldiers to become Regimental Photographers. The sales pitch went something like - "Will, as a Regimental Photographer you will never have to participate in a parade again, you will be photographing it", so of course I volunteered. This was by far the best course I ever completed in the Army. An intense six weeks of learning about photography, shooting as much B&W film as possible during the day, then long nights in the dark room developing and printing that days work. Since then, photography has been a passion. Although there have been long periods where I have not touched a camera, because of my job, it has been that one passion that I always come back to.
I have tried most forms of photography, but it is the solitude and the discovery that I really love about Landscape Photography. I am now based out of Darwin, Australia where there are some very talented photographers. I intend on exploring, and looking for new and interesting locations where I hope to capture the beauty of the Top End.
I will be blogging as I go and hope you get to know me as Northern Territory Photography grows. I hope you get as much out of my vision as I do.
