Tweed Coast, NSW. Australia... It hasnt even been 24hrs since we discounted the chance of anymore storms this season. We definitely spoke to soon! We captured this outflow shelf cloud about 2 hours ago just over the border at Duranbah Beach where we ran into fellow photographer @jaydealeman . We were aiming to get some nice water movement in the foreground amongst all the chaos & it seems to do a good job of complimenting the moody dark tones in the sky. Our Sirui Australia Tripod got a real workout in the water but it worked a treat in the end with no shake in any of the images, a reminder of the importance of a sturdy tripod. We also managed to get the drone up for some aerials so we are looking forward to checking them out later on our FB page.

Tweed Coast, NSW. Australia... "We'd watch the lightning, crack over cane fields, laugh & think, this is Australia" We've spent the last few days chasing storms from NE NSW out to the Brisbane Valley & everywhere in between. A mixed bag of good images & some failures but as the season comes to an end we want to thank all our chasing family (you guys know who you are)! ❤️ Thank you for all your support and friendship our there. In late May we are off to Tornado Alley for a month with @hsc thomas so stay tuned!

Bruarfoss, Iceland... We are so excited to announce that @nisifiltersaustralia have released their brand new V6 Filter Holder to replace the V5 which has been an integral part of our workflow from the start. We've spent the last few months testing the new filter holder & put together a short video review which you can see on our YouTube channel.

Vatnajökull, Iceland... Have you ever been inside an Ice Cave before? It's one of the most exhilarating experiences you'll ever encounter. Each year the legends at @LocalGuide help us to get out on the glacier & to experience new ice caves. There is nothing quite like it. Want to join us in Iceland? We have only 1 spot remaining on both our September & January @dreamphotographyworkshops.

Snaefellsness Peninsula, Iceland... Drones have come a long way in the last few years. If you wanted high image quality there was only one option, a high end drone like the Inspire 2. But even as professional, $6-$10k for a drone is absurdly over priced & way too impractical, especially when travelling abroad. Let's face it, airports HATE drones...you have a better chance of getting through customs with a bazooka then a big drone. Okay, so we got a bit side tracked there lol. but you get the gist. We, like many photographers weren't sure about the new @djiglobal Mavic Pro 2...would it be worth it? The answer? An astounding yes! The image quality & features are a marked improvement. This particular sword...sorry, spot in Iceland is a location we discovered aaaages ago. We couldn’t resist sharing this image with its incredible light.

Aldeyjarfoss, Iceland… This image had been a dream shot for us for a long time, but was nightmare in the making… We shot here in Summer & got a fiery orange sky at sunset, but wanted to capture something special, whilst it was covered in snow. We returned to do just that, but due to extremely ice covered roads & slippery conditions had to reverse many km’s (while sweating every moment as our car slid off the road). Luckily our friends at @Iceak Superjeeptours came to our rescue & took us back for sunrise the following morning, for this incredible display of colour, against the snowy waterfall. We were both so rapt! One of our followers on Snapchat, who saw us capture this live, said it resembled a bridal veil & we have to agree with her! 👰 Join us in Iceland this September or next January for our 10 day @dreamphotographyworkshops trip!

Reykjavik, Iceland... On the tail end of of our @dreamphotographyworkshops in Iceland last month, there was a small window of opportunity to capture the Northern Lights...like really small. Earlier in the day we'd taken a drive up to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula & on the way back, although the forecast said 100% cloud cover, we looked up out of the bus window just to check & much to our surprise the sky was alight with green. 😳 Knowing the area really well, we took our Dream Team here where some of them REALLY got to experience Aurora in all it's glory.

North-east Peninsula, Iceland... BIG NEWS!!!! We are so pleased to announce that we are officially @SiruiAustralia Ambassadors! We have been using their tripods for a while now & it's so awesome to finally join the team! We love photographing somewhere new & this little gem was disclosed to us from a local follower of ours & we are so happy she did! We've never even heard of this place or seen an image for here & at first glance it looks like the famous Gatklettur in the Snaefellsness Peninsula, but it's definitely not! The hike out here was a long one & we managed to get here in the nick of time a few hours after sunrise. Thankfully the sunrises in winter last for hours so the light was just incredible as this massive storm passed overhead. We left the bag to cut down weight on the run out & when we arrived there was no charge in the battery left...and the others were in our camera bag. Quick tip: we took the battery out & warmed it up in
Kirkjufell, Iceland... Reflection Perfection! It’s always a treat getting a glassy & calm afternoon on a moody/stormy afternoon here. This was taken a few weeks back during our @DreamPhotographyWorkshops & our team were rapt to find we had this lake all to ourselves & even found this lonely ice flower in the foreground. UPDATE: We have 1 spot left for our September Workshop!!!

Byron Bay, NSW. Australia... This Supermoon image has been a bucket list shot for us for almost 6 years now & every single year the conditions haven't lined up for us, but not today! 😎 Many years ago our @nikonaustralia Rep once asked us "What bucket list image can we help you achieve?". Without hesitation, this was it. When we woke up feeling a lot better after a nasty virus had us both sick in bed all week & we saw the clouds were clear & the moon rose right on blue hour, we gave them a call & we were given a 600mm lens (a $10k lens), the perfect focal range to capture this shot with our D850. But when we arrived in Byron we realised we had very few places to shoot from. We used PhotoPills (an app) to calculate the correct alignment & elevation & realised there was only one place & it was on a farm approximately 5km from the lighthouse. What we weren't expecting is the property owner to be a famous Australian musician.😳 Much to our
Lofoten, Norway… It's been two years since Karlie and I got engaged under the Aurora. Last February, we had the pleasure of playing it forward to another couple, Philip & @averycosylife from the USA. Philip contacted us after seeing our image and wanted to do something very special for his partner. We devised a plan to meet in Norway, and while Cosette was under the impression she was doing a photography workshop, Philip surprised her and popped the question under the Aurora. Congratulations again Philip & Cosette, and all the best for your upcoming wedding, and hope you love the photo! 💍 👰 🤵 All of the spots to our Norway Winter @dreamphotographyworkshops are full, but we do still have 3 spots left for our Iceland Winter Workshop.

Lofoten, Norway... UPDATE: Yesterday Dale was taken into Hospital here back in Australia. He unfortunately picked up a very bad virus and he was taken in to ER as he was passing out and had no energy. He has been released today though and we really appreciate all your kind messages and support and wish Dale a speedy recovery. As for this image, some of you who follow us on IG may remember on our Instagram Stories when Dale captured this on the last day just after our Norway workshop ended. The light on this afternoon was CRAZY! This was one of the last images he captured & hopefully he's back on his feet and shooting again soon. Let us know what you guys think of the image and any well wishes I will pass on to him. 😊 #mint shotz #loves mountains #splendid mountains #special shots #splendid earth #loves norway #bestofnorway #norge #mittnorge #dreamchasersnorway @lofotenislands #lofotenhighlights
