An email from Mission Australia.

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.


Saint Mary’s

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?

Street Shots – The Last Few

So here is the last few photos from my walk last week. Really need to get out and shoot more street!

They have a bit of cafe theme…..




Applecross Jetty

On Saturday I met up with some more people from the same group of photographers off facebook at Applecross Jetty for sunrise.
What a sunrise it turned out to be! Totally spectacular! It had to be one of the best I have seen!

Just two from Saturday morning.

Burns Beach

From Burns Beach while I was looking for portrait locations in the area.



Old Swan Brewery Jetty 2

This is the second (finished) shot from my Sunday morning at the Old Swan Brewery Jetty.
This one had a bit of trouble stitching but with a few tweaks it worked out in the end.

Old Swan Brewery Jetty B&W

I also finished my roll of 120film that I started shooting over Easter, I’m now just waiting to get it back from the lab which should be Friday or Saturday.
More info on that project when I get the film back.


Old Swan Brewery Jetty

Sunday morning I met up with a member of a photographic group I’m in to do some long exposures.
It was good to have someone to chat with about different techniques and equipment rather than just being by myself like I am most of the time.
This is the second panorama I took, the first would not stitch which is a bummer but it happens sometimes. I have another that I’ll post tomorrow.

Another from Jumbuck Hill Park

This is the last from my trip to Jumbuck Hill Park & Bells Rapids.
This is the view I was looking for! This is what I had in my head as the shot that I wanted to get.
Its worth viewing the large version tho even that doesn’t do it justice!
I think it would look great printed quite large!

Jumbuck Hill Park Glow

Another shot from my trip to Bells Rapids on Monday.
After walking along the Avon river for a while I decided that I would try to make my way up the hill to try and get a shot showing the view as I was making my way up a little track I saw this opening that was bathed I this gorgeous morning light so I stopped and quickly set up my tripod and took this shot.
What do you think?
