Welcome to 4WDaus Website
Over the last few months we have been hard at it updating our website in preparation for our retirement and to ensure new technology like tablets and phones can interact better with its content. Here we will present photos and stories from our travels. We hope you will appreciate our love of 4WDriving and photography. If you would like to explore the origins of our website, please take a look at "Walkabout". This was our first major trip into the great wonderful country Australia in 2006-2007. So click on the menu at left - Walkabout, we are sure you will love it. More recently, we purchased an Amesz 4x4 Mitsubishi Canter Motorhome (FG649). We are sure you will get to see more of it in our photos as we document our travels.
A question we commonly get is why is the site call 4WDaus? Simply 4WDaus is short for 4WD Australia, but that does not mean you will not read about other countries we visit in our travels. Check out Alison's trip to Solomon Islands.
If you would like to contact us - please drop us an email. Simply use "steve" with an "@" and our domain name "4WDaus.com". Sorry that's a little bit cryptic, but it assists in reducing spam. We would love to hear from you.

On a recent work / photographic stint to Ayers Rock, I realised I was once again by myself photographing a landscape long after all other photographers had left the scene. Standing there got me thinking of what attracts me to photography and what drives my passion?
There is something about taking a photographic image that captures a moment which immortalises the soul with the energy of that scene. I find being in a location at a beautiful time of day is a unique experience which personalises my memory. For me, the more unique the location the more soul clarifying it is. The time and effort to record and actual image is not proportional to its personal value. It’s more about the uniqueness of an image. Uniqueness is defined not only by what it shows, but what is does not show. Infused colour or the absence of footsteps in a desert dune scene is equally important.
Once I have captured an image, it is mine. Sure I am happy to share, but it would be an incredible image if it induced my feelings in that of the viewer.
Please feel free to view my work. I hope at least some of my soul can be seen somewhere in each image. Kruger Photography display just some of my images and is by no means an exhaustive portfolio. If you feel someone from my images or you have a question, please drop in an email!
