Jeff Brooks Photography
Jeff Brooks is a Barwon Heads based pilot who has being flying for 36 years. His love of photography goes back to his schools days and the use of his Lubitel Twin Lens Reflex camera.
Almost all of his aerial photography now is on digital format although he still shoots occasionally with medium format film and also uses 120 roll film in pinhole photography. Occasionally - with the right image - he prints using the Casein process, a beautiful, manual labour of love that creates something very special and totally unique.
Jeff loves to roam the sky across Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia searching for interesting landscapes, cloudscapes and form to photograph, particularly early in the morning and late in the day when the colour and shadows present imagery not witnessed by many. Crossing 3 States in one flight is not unusual.
All images here can be purchased. They are ordered online and will be printed to whatever size you choose and posted to you. Unframed photographs are posted in large tubes ready for framing or mounting. If you choose to have us frame your photograph then we can arrange delivery via courier, mail (if not too large!) or personal delivery or pick up.
A variety of paper types are used to print on. We normally recommend a preferred type to suit the image, but we are happy to print on other papers if you have a preference.
We are always very happy to talk about our work so please call for a chat.
"Approaching The Pound"
Tracking into the Flinders Ranges it is always exciting to see the shape and form of Wilpena Pound appear on the horizon.
Looking more like an impact crater than a more conventionally formed geological feature the Pound always inspires. This image is taken from
a vantage point few will see - approaching from the west at 7500' on a glorious South Australian day.
Classic image of Barwon Heads. Photo taken over the ocean looking to the north west with the village of Barwon Heads surrounded by water on three sides. Lake Connewarre is behind Barwon Heads
and Geelong in the background. The Barwon River weaves its way towards you as you look at this. 13th Beach, The Bluff and the river make this a great memory.
"Rocket Launch" The Painted Hills, near Womera, outback South Australia.
A favourite location - especially late in the day with a setting sun. The magic colours of the outback with warm sunset colours and shadow.
This wind formed geological formation of sandstone stands tall.
Exploring The Painted Hills near Womera is a constant journey of discovery - particularly as shadows highlight features lost at midday.
This image represents to me the timeless elegance that is the Australian Outback.
I love the shadows of this image - taken as the sun rose in Western Victoria.
Exploring the lakes and craters country of western Victoria is always a treat. This photo near Pirron Yallock looking NW to Lake Corangamite
on a calm evening is good for the soul.
Taken looking South, this photo shows moist air moving East, banking up against the Grampians before spilling over onto the dry Hamilton side.
The flow of this cloud was fast and continuous, a magnificent sight early on a Sunday morning.
The 12 Apostles delight on every day - even when you are not expecting it. On shore flow of moist air producing a dramatic early morning show.
