"How did you see that?", people exclaim, as they look at my macro photos or see something I have discovered in the bush. My cheeky reply is often the same. "I was looking!"

The tiny world, where much of nature lives, hides the unexpected and inspiring. Here are some of my favourite macro (close up) shots. Each shot tells a unique story of things and creatures you may easily miss.

As I take photography tours in my local bushland, here in Sydney, I teach people to look for small and seemingly insignificant things. Small things hold amazing stories, but you can't photograph what you don't see.

Please contact me if you are interested in prints of these or any other shots on my site Visit my tours page for info on my personalised bushland photography tours.

I love discovering and sharing the amazing beauty of nature. With experience in environmental education and a passion for nature photography, I can personalise a tour in our local bushshland. See tours page.

"Thanks for a wonderful tour. You just can't beat local knowledge. I walked the same path two days prior to jumping on Steve's tour and saw a few birds. But Steve showed me what he has learned over the years. He's a nice guy to top  it all off!"
