Image library for Energy Solutions

Over the last 6 months I have been documenting projects to build an image library for Energy Solutions in Hobart.

Their website is now launched and here are my favourite images.


The hero image below was shot on a very cold but beautiful morning. The sky was perfect and we were lucky to pick up the blue colour present in their logo. The bitumen required a lot of retouching to get rid of skid marks, etc.

The striking lighting at Malik restaurant in North Hobart was a real pleasure to photograph.

I had to use ambient light and the result turned out quite well.

A month of Auroras in Tasmania…

By Loic Le Guilly

Well May 2013 has been a fantastic month for auroras in Tasmania.

May 01

The first day of May gave us a small aurora and a nice clear sky. I was able to get some good images from the Signal Station on Mount Nelson, including this cool 360 panorama with the historic Signal Station, the Milky Way and the city lights (click on the image to take a spin).

On May 15 the aurora alerts were going off again. This time I decided to head to Mount Wellington (just above Hobart) to capture a different view. The moon was out so the sky wasn’t as dark as for the previous one but it still was a good night of photography.

When I got the the summit the outside temperature was -1 celsius. Luckily there wasn’t a breath of air so it was fairly pleasant and after a couple of hours of photography only my feet were starting to feel pretty cold.

The drive down the Moutain was interesting as the road was glistening with ice cristals… very slippery.

I also got this 360 panorama with city lights, aurora and Milky Way… very happy with the result (click the image to take a spin).

Finally on the first day of winter, a big aurora hit the southern skies. This time I decided to take a 75 minute timelapse (resulting in 26 seconds of footage).

This aurora timelapse video was published worldwide on various news websites, including on NBCNews.com
