It is something I have been working towards for quite some time. Going FULL FRAME. Up until recently I have never needed the use of the more expensive full frame body’s. I have always managed to maintain my moto of spending less on the body and more on the lenses. But when the now crazy popular A7III was announced as the “basic” model with more features than you can poke a stick at it was an easy decision. The a6500 is a great camera but now was the obvious time for me to pull the trigger on going full frame. […]

I was wanting to take a good sunset shot at the beach this afternoon but it was a bit hard to ignore the trash piled up on the beach. I got my sunset shot but angled my camera towards the beach and took 50 photos of different pieces of trash within a 50 meter stretch of the beach. Look at this spectacular planet and the incredible views and life it provides us and look at how we treat it. At what point do we say as a human race “Well that’s enough then, this has to stop”. Is it now? […]
DJI Mavic Pro Nisi Mavic Filter ND 64 .5 second exposure Full image at http://www.flickr.com/photos/brusca/ Local fisherman on the coast of South Sumatra chance their luck on a rocky outcrop during morning fishing. When you have been patiently awaiting the weather to turn for 3 days and the final morning the clouds are still not lifting and the light is still not breaking through, the thought process and creativity has to switch gears. I had gotten a few shots of Wayhawang Beach over the last few days with some nice long exposures under trying conditions and on my final morning […]
As always for the full image visit my website at the link above. For anyone wanting to use my images please contact me first. Such a beautiful location of a somewhat untouched paradise under a towering waterfall, but surreal in a sense that this little paradise is surrounded by 100's of square kilometers of oil palm plantations. This is a good example of getting lucky but to be honest it is not the best photo I could have captured from this location and I will surely go back on my own time and get the right image. This image is […]
I love it when the rice fields are in their way to being ready to harvest. In the afternoon light in the midst of the dry season the rice fields are a joy to photograph from the air or the ground.
A local in the Bengkulu province spreads fertilizer over his rice crops the traditional way.
Sometimes you can't quite work around tourists and those times can also work in your favor. I quite like the composition and the ghosting of the tourists crossing the river.

Always be patient when the sun has set as often the best light happens for 20 minutes afterwards…
I have never been caught in a flash flood before. But this week it did happen. While photographing the beautiful palak siring waterfalls in Kemumu North Bengkulu. It all started with a slight drizzle as I started photographing the waterfalls and it never occurred to me that it may have been poring cats and dogs up in the mountains. After on and off photographing the falls for 2 hours in between slight rain drizzles the sun finally decided to break through. I was situated directly in front of the falls, camera set low to the flowing river and all my […]
