I received an email last week thanking me for my efforts photographing the Mission Australia Xmas lunch in the park last year.
I must say that it was an honor and a privilege to be able to photograph such an amazing event! (I am looking forward to doing more events like this in the future)
I still have to go through and spend some more time editing some of the photos from this event for my portfolio.
When I do I’ll post a few up here as well as them going on my website.
Another from around Perth somewhere. I saw this out the corner of my eye as I was walking past and just had to stop.
During my walk around Perth the other week I walked past Saint Mary’s Cathedral as soon as I saw it I knew the shot I wanted and how I wanted it to look.
It was around 11am so the sun was fairly over head creating harsh shadows but that was part of the look I was after. I used a 10 stop ND filter to blur the water running down the water feature in the center. I was even lucky enough that the seagull didn’t move too much and only his (or her) head is blured, can you find where the seagull in the photo?
While I was out and about on Monday I also added another lens to my bag, a Sigma Art 35mm f1.8.
This lens is much hyped about and is a focal length I like the look of. The low light capabilities of the f1.4 are also great.
I took my dog, Casper, to the groomer this old hotrod was parked in the car park so I snapped a few frames of it. (I took my camera along so I had something to do while I waited)
Early Monday morning (6am) I met up with another photog to have a walk around Perth and do some street and urban shooting.
Its been a long time since I have shot street and it took me a little while to find my rhythm, but in the end I got a fair few shots that I’m happy with.
While my mind was mainly focused of street shooting I was also thinking about the urban landscape and architectural side of things but struggruled with it, although I think it does show in some of the shots.
So far I have only edited the street shots and not the urban/architectural as I am drawing a blank on where to start.
Its been a fair while since I made a post, I have been busy with work and haven’t had a lot of spare time.
A few week ago I was the official photographer for the Glass Slipper Teen Ball and I must say that I had a blast! All the teens were so well behaved! While it was definitely a challenge for me I walked away with a lot of good photos and I also learnt a lot as well.
These are my fave shots from the night.
And the girls behind the ball.
Caitlin, Kasey & Chloe.

Last Sunday the same group of people I met up with on Saturday all met up at Lesmurdie Falls.
While I didn’t forget anything I did manage to put a rather large rip in my jeans!
As always it was good to get out with others as landscape photography can be quite the solitary exercise at times, its always good to have someone to chat with while your out although it can make getting the compostion you want a bit harder when you have other people around that you don’r want in your shot.
Anyway here’s a couple of photos from the day.
I also took my Nikon FM2 and took a few shots, the film should be processed by the time I get back from site.
