Recent advances in technology have seen radical changes to photography and how we approach it. One of the most exciting innovations is the ability to get your camera above the landscape, opening up a whole new world of never-before-seen vistas.

This exhibition presents a unique and exciting new viewpoint of Ballarat and the surrounding district. Andrew’s intimate knowledge of the local district and his trademark ability to capture the ideal light conditions has enabled him to compile an intriguing and unique collection from the purely pictorial to the outright abstract.
