Lightweight Photography

I hate heavy gear. Don’t get me wrong, it has its place and some people NEED all the bells and whistles and abilities that bulk DSLRs and lenses offer. For me, I traded all that stuff in when I decided to pack my bag (singular) and leave the UK for an undetermined amount of time. I had my one way ticket, a small amount of cash in the bank NO PLAN and a Sony NEX 6.


I loved this camera. For my travels around Australia it was perfect. I had a couple of lenses and for a few years it served me really well. The only issue I encountered was on our trip to New York where I stupidly used a micro sd card, which was not best quality and I lost all of my images. At the same time, my 12-42mm ez zoom lens decided to give up as well.
This set up was even great to use for my Underwater work, with a single strobe. I have to admit I was quite happy with most of the results from the NEX 6. But eventually, my lust and love for Olympus as a brand and their designing got the better of me and I moved on to an OM-D EM5MKii. I LOVE this camera!


The OM-D EM5MKii is (in my opinion) beautifully designed and super lightweight. However, it’s weather sealed which means I can shoot the stunning Gold Coast Seascapes and waterways, without worry. The Pro lenses (which I am yet to invest in, but have used) offer stunning optical quality and overall I find the system a joy to use.
So here it is, my latest offering and the reason for my blog re-start and the kick off of my new YouTube channel. I will be showing you how I shoot with a light, portable system that is perfect for travel as well as how I edit, store and share my images and work with another super portable solution, the iPad Pro.


I use an 11″ iPad Pro, with Apple Pencil and edit using a variety of apps that I’ll talk about in an upcoming post.
If you’re interested in a lightweight, simplified, portable workflow please sign up to be notified of my new posts, follow me on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook (all direct links below) and let me know what content you’d like to see me release.


Thanks so much for being here, I can wait to share my work with you.

PADI Training and Qualified


I am trained to the highest standards by leading internationally organisation PADI

We had a great experience learning to Dive with Graham.

Open Water Course, Australia

Graham is attentive and patient. I was quite nervous to try diving but Graham's friendly nature and caring put me at ease and I soon relaxed in the water. I had a great experience!

Laura Kelly

Graham ran a very efficient day trip to the GBR. All the crew were great and clearly enjoyed working together. Graham's professional but friendly character really came through.
