This is a long post and very much off topic for this blog but this is something that has been irritating me for years. It will be of no interest to most here but if you happen to own this laptop, it may save you from an expensive session with your local mental health professional.…
Following major announcement after announcement over the past fortnight, the 2021 mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul, is going to be a massive season next year.
So what does a city under curfew look like? Well if you’re not a working photographer, I wouldn’t suggest wandering into the CBD to find out. I was stopped by police 4 times in a three hour period. I had to show ID my work permit and all was fine but if I didn’t have my permit, I would have been fined $1,600 each time.
In today’s blog post I wanted to talk about something entirely unrelated to sport or photography. I’m currently half way through writing a blog about the best data backup strategy for photographers, or really anyone with critical data, but lets be honest, it’s a dry subject and not all that interesting.

I’ve been shooting sports for a while now and one of the greatest challenges, especially when you first start out, is gear. I’m not saying gear makes the photographer, because it doesn’t, not by a long shot (pun intended), but lens reach is everything in sports and with long lenses come’s large dollars. Physics is still a thing and for some sports, such as Cricket, you must have a long lens, there’s just no way around it.
