Welcome to 4WDaus Website
We are excited to introduce you to our new website. 4WDaus is where we plan to share our photographry and travels as we explore retirement in our Amesz 4WD Truck. Our web site has grown from our "Walkabout" which was our trip around Australia in 2006-2007. You can still see the old site by clicking the menu left - Walkabout, we are sure you will love it. You will find the new site provides better access to readers with mobile devices like iPads etc.

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!

Sitting on the Bundaberg beach dunes in the twilight, watching the darkness creep across from the horizon is an incredible feeling. Keep an eye on the waves as you just might see a dolphin crest as they make their way amongst the schools of fish.
Is there a better feeling than camping in the middle of nowhere, with only cattle and thousands of stars for company? Sometimes when the air is still and the sky is clear, it is possible to see the astral trails our stars track each and every night. One requires a steady tripod and much patience to capture the different coloured stars as they move across our sky and leave a star trails. But the reward is this amazing image titled
Amesz Under the Stars
The softness of evening is still one of my favourite times for photographry. Every so often there is a certain glow, that just beautiful and can really bring to life an ordinary photogragh. Whenever I visit Brisbane, Kangaroo Point Cliffs is certainly the place to see the city in its best. The evening is so special with the view of one of Brisbane's older ferries finishing up a hard days work as it puts up the river to home.
