Still looking for my photos

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

Since my last move, I haven’t been able to find anything - funnel web spider photos included. Bugger! I’ll be visiting my fearless photographer friend for copies very shortly.

Getting my spider photos together

Friday, July 7th, 2006

I was recently talking with my intrepid photographer friend, Doug Steley. We were making sure we both knew where the photos were etc for putting together this web site. He mentioned in passing (I mean while we were talking about other things, not “with his dying breath”) - and this is a direct quote here:

“I still wake with nightmares years afterwards.”

Nice. The full story of the funnel web spider photo shoots coming soon.

Funnel Web Spiders R Us

Saturday, July 1st, 2006

Hello hello! I’m in the early stages of building a shop for all things funnel web spider. Funnel web spiders are seriously cool - the world’s most aggressive, most toxic arachnids - and they look the part! Funnel webs are notoriously difficult to photograph:

  • they’re very aggressive
  • they can move very fast
  • they scare the crap out of most photographers
  • when they’re not scaring the crap out of photographers, they like to stay inside their little “socks” (their funnel-shaped webs they live in)

I’ll be releasing a range of funnel web spider gear featuring some of the best photos ever taken of these creepy fellas. You heard it hear first!
