About Me

A person who loves Nature and It's creations

My Passion

Hi, my name is Peter Davy and I live at Kaka Point. I am a photographer, graphic artist and web designer.

From 2004 to 2014 I was fulltime looking after my partner Tracey who died in November 2014 from complications caused by Multiple Sclerosis. Since Tracey died I haven't been very good with people. I get depressed easily and need to be by myself. I deal with my depression by getting out into nature and taking photos. I've always loved animals and trees and wild remote places. Now I like to photograph them before everything turns to concrete and tarseal.

All photos on this site were taken by me. I specialise in wildlife photography but I can photograph anything and am available for hire. I also love photographing rural scenes and farms so if you want a big poster of your farm to put on your wall then I'm your man.

Most of my photography is available as Fine Art wall prints. Please check out the Fine Art section.

I also do any type of graphic digital design such as processing other people's photos, logos, animation, flyer design and complete web sites. My passion though is to be outdoors with my camera and dog.

My dog's name is Rastus and he may look scary but he loves people, is stock proof and kid safe. He accompanies me everywhere I go. He has grown up around penguins and seals and is wildlife friendly to everything except wild pigs and possums. I also have a cat called Garfield and a friendly possum that sleeps in my roof.
