Ian Beattie Photography

Wonderful moments, breathtaking landscapes & intimate encounters with the natural world, places & people

I’m Ian Beattie and welcome to my collection. When I first started taking photos, cameras were powered by steam, Kodachrome was king and ‘auto focus’ was something out of science fiction. Over the years the technology has changed dramatically but not that thrill that comes with pressing the shutter and capturing a unique sliver of time.

For forty years my camera has allowed me to capture and share thousands of wonderful moments, breathtaking landscapes, intimate encounters with the natural world, places I’ve travelled and people I’ve met.

I’d like to say that I work hard at my photography, but I don’t. It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s just that photography is my ‘happy’ place, a stress free zone away from the hassles of everyday life and I refuse to ruin it by taking it too seriously. For me the fun is in walking out the door, camera in hand and waiting to see what chance throws my way. Of course if it happens to be in some far off place that I’ve never been before so much the better. I’m not saying this is the best approach but I love the fact that, like Forrest Gump, you never knew what you were going to get.

Our pictures are available as a range of Wall Art and Photo Gifts including Framed Prints, Posters, Canvas Prints, Jigsaw Puzzles and other Photo Gifts - all professionally made and delivered to your door quickly and securely

Headstones in Cemetery Reserve in Kingston and Arthur's Vale

Headstones in Cemetery Reserve in Kingston and Arthur's Vale. The cemetery has been in use since about 1798 and the gravestones bear witness to convict revolts and the lifestyle, hardships and tragedies of the island's early inhabitants including the Pitcairn Islanders who settled here in 1856.

Norfolk Island Cemetery thought to have been established in the 1820s

Norfolk Island Cemetery thought to have been established in the 1820s. Gravestones dating from 1792, moved from no longer existing burial sites around the island, are found here. Inscriptions reveal the hardships endured in the colonial era. Many graves are those of descendants of the Bounty mutineers who moved to Norfolk from Pitcairn in 1856. Norfolk Island, Southwest Pacific, Australia

Rainbow over uninhabited Nepean Island about 800 m south of Norfolk Island and 10

Rainbow over uninhabited Nepean Island about 800 m south of Norfolk Island and 10 ha in area. Its 30-metre cliffs make access difficult and few people visit today. Between about 1825 and the 1850s convicts worked a quarry and harvested Norfolk Island pines there. Phillip Island can be seen beyond. Norfolk Island, Southwest Pacific, Australia
