Good old Archie Muntz has been a Mainline customer for many years now. His day job is to die for he is the Manager and overseer of the reclamation of Curtis Island in the Great Barrier Reef National Park Queensland. What does that all mean? It means he is the guy responsible for seeing the reclamation of the 3000 ha cattle farming property that once occupied this island and making sure it is with a little help returned to a natural state. This gives him endless opportunity to carry out his second profession Landscape Photography!
Archie on the right enjoying some down time!
Archie now has his website up and running and what I really love about it is that it has so much personal info and reading on it. So many Photographers websites are just about the images. Not Archie’s he writes about his life, work, photography and travels at the same time. Lots of interesting reading here. Take a look at his website here “As I was looking”
Archie told me it took 5 years to get his website up and running and I can see why, it’s more like a book than just another photo gallery. Of particular interest is his writing and images of the process of reclaiming the old property “Spadely” on Curtis Island Queensland.
Archie shoots with a range of interesting cameras ( in fact I think he keeps ebay in business with his love of old film gear) from xpans to fuji 645 and a Balda 69 of all things! In the end his devotion to film really shines through in his photography… Way to go Archie!
