Ben Messina is an Australian Landscape and Nature photographer based the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Australia. His ability to capture inspiring imagery originates from the beauty that surrounded him whilst growing up in Cairns, Far North Queensland.

Wanting to share the picturesque landscape, Ben began his photographic journey. From the age of ten, he captured his first images on a Pentax K1000, using Black and White film. Being the son of an established, professional photographer, he was fortunate enough to have his fathers experience and a fully functioning Black and White darkroom at his fingertips. Ben turned professional at the age of eighteen, capturing everything from cutting edge commercial photography through to portraiture.

However, his true passion has always been for landscape, beauty waiting to be captured.  Concentrating on gathering a collection over many years, his talent has flared with time.

Ben took the courageous step of opening his first gallery in Cairns, in 2004. It was so successful that he now has work displayed in private and corporate collections all over the world. With the phenomenal response to his first gallery, Ben expanded to Brisbane, where he opened a gallery, named Gallery M in the heritage-listed Brisbane Arcade in 2009. In 2012 Ben opened his 4th and largest signature gallery Ben Messina Landscapes at 3/41 Maple Street, Maleny. Visiting Ben’s Maleny Gallery you will find a large selection of Ben’s most popular Australian landscape photography images, both large framed panoramas and large canvas prints.

Ben’s images are available in editions of 100, 200 and 450 and are printed on the finest archival photographic materials available. All images appreciate in value as the editions sell out.

Ben’s collection of panoramic images have heart, emotion and amazing depth. And his journey continues. . .

Network Video Landsborough

Were you aware that people in Maleny and surrounding districts can return their hired videos from Network Video in Landsborough – in Maleny?   This service is proving popular.

Network Video Landsborough

Network Video Landsborough – the Home Entertainment Experts, is at 40 Cribb Street, Landsborough – Telephone 07 5494 8711.

The owner was telling me that he has many customers from Maleny – so many that he has arranged for a drop-off chute at the Organic Shop, on the corner of Maple & Myrtle Streets.  The box is emptied daily – thereby saving customers the trip down the hill just to return the videos.

Hire of video’s is through a ‘Pay It Forward Card’ which costs $35 for 10 rentals (down from $5.95 each) – a saving of $24.50.  Also Click here to check out their Facebook page
