My love for the City of Melbourne and Long Exposure Photography

Updated: Sep 11, 2019


My love for Melbourne City started in 2009 when I purchased my first DSLR camera, the Sony A-100. Learning from magazines, books and YouTube long exposure became my favourite form of photography.

After selling my images online, I upgraded to the Canon 5D III. Till this day I have been using the 5D pushing to extremes from hot to cold weather and taking over 3 minute long exposures.


Capturing movement in a cityscape adds that certain dynamic feel to the images. Certainly living the most livable city helped me capture some great moments of Melbourne city. This project has been a labour of love. It will continue until I can't continue with photography. Here is the collection of my images from 2009 to 2019.
