ConiferHillPhotography combines several great loves in my life: family
photography, pets, performance and travel. I can't recall a time without a
camera in the home and remember the excitment of purchasing my first, an
Agfamatic 50, when I was less than eight years old, which took the
'Snowball in flight' photo below.
For over 45 years I've been snapping photos, currently with Sony cameras,
but in the past Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Agfamatic, Fuji , Pentax and even
Over the years I regularly have had the camera out photographing family life.
Photography of casual moments or special events such as weddings or
peformances even times with our pets are a beautiful means by which I have
'visually journaled' both mine and my family's lives. Photographic images help
me to write and remember stories that can be easily forgotten or sometimes
never even seen.
ConiferHillPhotography is also a place for my own 'travel journal' moments.
My wife and I have driven a fair bit of Australia, holidayed in the U.K., N.Z.,
U.S.A. and Europe. From these travels I proudly provide for sale an assortment of beautiful photographs titled SignatureCollections. (Hidden page, only accessible through the former link).
Photographs can't replace the 'living moment' but can help to recall and cherish our experiences. When I took 'Snowball in flight', below, my main concern was not getting hit! But now I see a playful father, a concerned sister and a joyful mother. This simple but memorable photo has kept the moment alive for over 40 years.
Through ConiferHillPhotography I offer the same opportunity for a 'visual journal' to others.
I hope you enjoy the images on this website and would count it a privilege to be given the opprtunity to capture the moments that you are living in.
