Where did that lady get her mini goldendodle? Darcy i think her name was!
I never get tired of looking at Steve's shots. Inspirational!
I feel like an amateur when I look at your stuff.
GREAT Shots Stevie J. Im an Airshows Volunteer and love all your pics mate.
Great Aviation Pics! I am an Air Traffic Controler from Germany and I will visit the Avalon Airshow next year, is it good value for money to buy tickets for the grandstand? When do I have to be at the gate to avoid any traffic jams?
Gorgeous photo of Lily in her beautiful new hat, must see you all soon. Susie.
Hi Steve. You are obviously much busier than I imagined! Enjoyed looking through the images of your other life. Take care and best wishes to you and Sue and of course, baby D.
Brilliant. Freaking brilliant. Ian Schwartz.
Steve-got your web site when I caught up with Duncan in Perth recently-photos are sensational - hope all is well and life is full of good chi, Cheers Ian Everitt-Perth PS drop in anytime for a meal if you fly west.
Great aviation images !
Thanks. I used the Canon 70-200L F2.8 IS for the close up shots and the Canon 17-40L F4.0 for the wide angle shots. They're both great lenses but unfortunately are quite expensive. Good luck with the photography.
Dear Stevie J,
Hi! I'm a young photographer wanting to start professionally. I love what you've done with the 300D, and I have a question. What lense/lenses did you use in the following shoots: SeaWorld San Diego and Disneyland? Thank you!
Thanks Cleo. Which of my pictures are you referring to?
Thank you for sharing. Our news stations have some pictures but nothing like this. My Father, Roger Hober, worked for NASA for years tracking these wonderful birds. Thank you for the memories.

Suz and Steve,
It was an absolute pleasure to see your wedding photos, your gorgeous baby Darcey and the various other amazing photos you have. Congratulations to you both. Lovely to be in touch again Suz.
My husband and I have just spent several enjoyable hours looking over you photos - they are just beautiful!
The airshow picts are the best we've ever seen. We'll certainly keep your web address and check it often.
Thanks for the great entertainment!

I'm an Air Force photographer. Really enjoyed your pics of the F-111s at Avalon. Thanks,

Hi Steve, Fantastic shots of the airshow.Now I know what you get up to on your days off.
Thanks Charlie. There are lots of telephoto lenses to choose from. It depends on what you want to shoot. I own the Canon 70-200L F2.8 IS lens and am very happy with it, I have lots of photos taken with this lens. The f4 70-200L is also good. The Canon 300mm F4 and 400mm F5.6 are also good prime telephoto lenses.
I look forward to seeing some of your photos.
Your photos are great treat!!!
I love all the landscape. They are fantastic!!!
I had a 10D and 24-70mm lense. I wonder if u have any good suggestion for a telephoto lense?
At least, I really love your photos!!!
Photos you shoot give me a great inspiration!!!
I soon will post a website to share.

Dear Steve and Suz,
What an absolutely gorgeous fluffy little puppy, hope you have had a fun and laughter filled weekend with your new baby.
Love Auntie Susie
Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.
Thanks Marchael. That's a difficult question and I could write many pages on the advantages and disadvantages of both.
It depends on what you want to shoot, how big or small your budget is and how seriously you want to get into photography. Also keep in mind that lens choice makes a huge difference to the quality of your photos and you may end up spending many 1000's of dollars on different lenses. On the other hand you may be happy with the kit lens and never buy another lens. A good quality lens on the 300D will take a better photo than an average quality lens on the 20D. If you have a limited budget you may be better off buying the 300D and a good lens.
Fast startup time, 8 Megapixels, 5 frames per second up to 23 frames, slightly more solid construction, more custom functions and focusing modes, very low noise at high ISO speeds. Better flash performance and control. Better at shooting fast moving objects such as sports and wildlife due to the higher frame rate and faster response speed.
Higher cost, slightly larger and heavier, steeper learning curve. Photos require some post processing with Photoshop or similar program to get the best out of them.
Low cost, smaller and lighter, simpler and easier to learn how to use. Still takes fantastic shots. Low noise compared to any point and shoot digital camera.
Slower startup speed, about 2.5 frames per second up to 4 frames, slightly higher noise than the 20D at high ISO, 6 megapixels but that is still plenty for large prints, limited choice with focusing modes. No flash exposure control on the inbuilt flash. Photos require some post processing with Photoshop or similar program to get the best out of them. Slightly slower response speed between pressing the shutter button and taking the photo.
So it really depends on your situation. Either camera has the capability of taking top quality shots. Either camera will use any of Canon's range of over 50 lenses and produce excellent results. If you are going to seriously get into photography then the 20D would be better if you have the money, but the 300D will still allow you to to do almost anything that the 20D will do but sometimes just not quite as easily.
So, both cameras are very similar and overlap in a lot of features and capabilities and many users would be quite happy using either. I used the 300D for a year and took lots of great shots. I've had the 20D now for about 4 months and am very happy with it and prefer it over the 300D as I like to shoot sports and fast moving wildlife such as birds.
Hi there! First of all, your photos are excellent. That said, I noticed that you used both the Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel and the Canon EOS 20D. I'm currently trying to decide between the two and would very much appreciate it if you could tell me what you think of each one in hopes of helping me come to a decision. Thanks in advance!!! Mark
Just had a lovely browse at your latest photos, they are really marvellous, quite liked the one of the Glastonbury local girls.
Thanks for the intro to your pages anad the site.
Its a great site with so many great shots in the other calleries.
Hello Steve and Suz,
The update looks great. The photos of the babies are just gorgeous, it's just beautiful to see the photos of Erin and William. When are you going to give me niece or nephew to play with.
All my love Shay x x x x
Your skills as a photographer are rarely matched, way to go! You are a lucky man to have such a good life, don't forget to keep sharing. We are watching you, hehehehe.
Hello Steve & Suzanne,
Really enjoy your magnificent pictures. Keep up the great job, I get a kick out of going in there every now and then and it feels as though I see you more often than I do.
Lots of love to you both from your Queensland family. xxooxxooxxooxx
Excellent pics, mate! I too have a 300D (and also went to the 2004 Australian F1 GP with it) but I haven't quite yet managed to capture the important moments like you have. Then again, I am not a commercial airline pilot, and don't have the point of view that you often have ;-)
