Brisbane-based Robert Whiteley is a nature and landscape photographer who sees his hometown as the perfect photography location; accessible to beaches, mountains, and a bay of islands bound by the Pacific Ocean.
Beginning to shoot seriously in 2005, he uses photography as an outlet after spending his days in an office dedicated to predominately non-creative tasks. Although preferring his digital SLR for flexibility and creativity, he carried a point-and-shoot camera almost everywhere.
Robert is self taught and prefers to experiment in the field rather than page-turn books. He also prefers to get it right on the camera rather than spend time with Adobe Photoshop.
Since July 21, 2005, Robert has been posting an image a day on his photoblog, Neverhappen.com. The tag line of the site is "Photo daily from Australia, New Zealand and sometimes elsewhere".
