Welcome to Castle Photography

(Updated 3rd September 2014)

Photos from Creatures of the Night (Melbourne) are now online. General photos from this event can be found at: First Contact Photos

This site hosts Official Photos with Guests from First Contact Conventions, Armageddon in Australia, and Best of Both Worlds events. Reprints of these photos are available for sale, either online, or you can approach me at any event I attend to get on the spot reprints.

For a number of reasons I've had to split my photo archive into two blocks - official photos for which we must control reprints, and all other images taken at events, which are freely available. If you are interested in all the other photos I've taken at these and other events, you may find my others websites interesting. They include: Pete's Fan Photos, First Contact Photos, and Armageddon Photos

As usual please email me if I spelt your name wrong, or if you can tell me the names of people in any photos.

To contact me, send an email to: . Or ring anytime in the afternoon or evening on (+61 3) 9736 9568
