Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my photography blog. I am a photographer living in the South West of Western Australia at the northern end of the Margaret River Wine Region. This area has magnificent beaches, wineries, forest, caves, breweries, galleries etc, and living in the area provides me with opportunities to create images through photography that showcase the area. But there is not much point in creating these images, and printing copies which only close friends see. Hence the blog.

I would like to thank Ian Wiese for making this possible. This may seem strange, but when I tried to register the username ianwiese I found it was already in use!. Some detective work revealed that a photographer in Pt Elizabeth, South Africa named Ian Wiese had already registered the username, but hadn’t made use of it. I phoned him, and guess what – he is a nice guy, but with a name like that what would you expect. The conversation went like this. ”

Hello – is that Ian Wiese”

“Yes who is speaking?”

“This is Ian Wiese.”

I expect you can see the difficulty especially when there are different accents, and pronunciations of the surname involved.  However Ian Wiese quickly agreed to let me use my (and his) name.
