My cool underwater gear from Essex

I just wanted to throw a shout out to my buddy; Mike Waggoner, who makes all the cool Essex water housings that I use to protect my valuable camera gear from the elements. I love using Mike’s housings because they are simple to operate and are very light, which is of utmost importance when swimming […]


Beach Girl on canvas

This is a 30 x 45 inch gallery wrap canvas of Beach Girl. I photographed this image of my wife several years ago and it’s always remained a very popular image. I love the the fact that I only really have two tones in this image. Black and gold. I love to work with fitted […]


Equinox moment – Walk On Water

I’ve been photographing for magazines all over the world now for more than 25 years and there’s one in particular that has not only got my attention, but also captured my imagination. Not concerned with the usual fare of professional surfing and the industry fed fodder, White Horses magazine relies on a veritable army of […]


Barrel Swirl, a result of incredible conditions

I love to swim and take photographs in the surf, particularly when the water is crystal clear like in this image. These are what I call dream days. Conditions so perfect, that I simply can’t go wrong, taking photographs of it. This was one such day at Pupukea sandbar on Oahu’s north shore. The end […]


Blue Thunder – Terry Fitzgerald’s – The Drifta

I photographed Kye Fitzgerald a couple of times here on the north shore with his amazing single fin surfing. He is quite possibly the best single fin surfer that I’ve met. This surfboard is one of Kye’s boards, the iconic Drifta and like most of Terry Fitzgerald‘s surfboards, it is built for speed. The reason, […]


New minimalistic floral art piece – Plumeria Pebbles

Living here on the north shore of Oahu, I’m pretty much surrounded by a lot of natural beauty. I only have to step out my door and see hundreds of beautiful tropical flowers. Typically, I tend to mainly see Plumerias (also known as Frangipani’s in Australia) and Hibiscus flowers more than any other type. This […]


Foam Burst – photographing foam

I’ve always loved to photograph waves, right from my very first picture back in october of 1977. For me, it’s not so important for the wave to be a perfect tube or not. I’m just into really different looking things, so I like it when I can step outside the box a bit and apply […]


Working for yourself can feel very rewarding

I’ve always partially worked for myself even long before I went out on my own at the age of 30. Before that I supplemented my meager photographic income with working in professional color labs in Hobart and Sydney, in Australia. It was the perfect working environment for a young developing photographer such as myself at […]

Amazing Hawaii’an Petroglyphs

I’ve been living here on the north shore of Oahu now for like 17 years. As you can imagine, in that amount of time, I’ve seen a lot of cool unique stuff here, especially with the north shore being such a naturally beautiful place. We get a lot of really big surf here in the […]


Indian Ocean Sunset

I did an amazing photo trip through the Maldivian islands earlier this year and came back with a truly amazing array of incredible tropical images. I photographed this very cool and unique sunset image of a traditional Maldivian Dhoni boat at the very, beautiful Gili Lankanfushi resort towards the end of my trip. This image […]


Beach Boxes 20 x 60 inch canvas

Brighton Beach in Melbourne, Australia is world famous for having these cool brightly coloured beach boxes. From the turn of the last century, these used to be the way to get changed at the beach, some hundred years ago. These days, the boxs are all privately owned and are used typically during hot beachy summer […]

Also shot at the ever amazing Gili Lankanfushi resort, this picture is available in a wide range of sizes and […]


Party time for your feet

I recently joined up with the sandalista sandal company to produce a new set of sandal designs based just on my photos. I selected images that evoke positive thoughts and feelings. What better than some beautiful clear water waves, Hawaiian sunsets and fresh tropical flowers, so next time, you want to pick up a pair […]


Conch Shell Bubbles

This is another quite popular under water image that I photographed of a sinking conch shell in crystal clear waters. I wanted to get some slightly different pictures of the shell, so I went swimming with my Essex waterproof camera housing and happened upon the idea of shooting it underwater as the air released from […]


Huffington post publishes another Davey Pictorial

The world renowned website; The Huffington post recently published a pictorial of my big wave surfing images and just again yesterday, published another pictorial, this one devoted to mostly vintage surf cars. Most of these cars from the 60’s or before, many of them Australian, but would have incredible stories to tell, if they only […]


Huge 40 foot wave captured in this remarkable image

I’ve been photographing surf since the late 1970’s and in all that time, this was clearly the biggest wave, I ever did shoot. Photographed in march of 2002, we had a very, very big west swell hit the Hawaiian islands and much of the size was marching right past the north shore, due to it’s […]

It makes a perfect addition to your home, as shown here in this bathroom scene. Hand printed and signed , I use only the […]


Banana Leaf Gecko

I’ve always been a fan of contrast and colour, especially when they randomly appear while I’m on photo surfari. This is a great example with a gecko sunning itself on a banana leaf. Massive amounts of color and contrast resulted in this cool colorful silhouette. Shown here as a 30 x 45 inch canvas, but […]

Thatched Hut – large tropical canvas

Thatched hut was photographed in the fabulous Maldive islands earlier this year at Island Hideaway. Everyone with the means to do so, should check out this amazing part of the world before it disappears. It is estimated that in 50 years time, many of the islands will already have disappeared back into the ocean, due […]
