From the bottom of my heart thank you for visiting, commenting and liking my photographs.
Having a quick break from editing weddings right now so I decided to download some of the images I took on the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 at the Perth Royal Show last Thursday night.
This was the first time I went to the show grounds to take photos and I must say it was certainly worth it. I had so much fun!
Until next time – Happy Shooting!

Power and the glory
THIS breathtaking shot of a female humpback having a whale of a time was taken off Albany.
The majestic creature entered King George Sound with her newborn calf a few weeks ago and was seen by whale watchers on board an Albany Ocean Adventures tour.
Fremantle photographer Leigh Diprose was one of those lucky passengers and captured this magical moment of the humpback breaching.
“It was on my bucket list,” Mr Diprose said. “The whale had a two-week-old calf with her and it was fantastic to have witnessed the calf trying to breach the water, then its mum came out of nowhere and started breaching. It was amazing.”
Paul Guest, from Albany Ocean Adventures, said the cow and calf stayed in King George Sound for about six days after this picture was taken – the first time a migrating humpback had done that in a long while.
“Normally they swim right on through,” he said. “It was a little unusual. You could also tell the calf was very young, less than two weeks old.
“Its dorsal fin was still bent over. It straightens up after 14 days.”

There are still some spots left on the camera courses coming up on the 21st or the 22nd of January.
Below is what photographer Tina Barley had to say about the course:
“I was a happy snapper and wanted to get off the dreaded green mode on my camera to get better results. The course was easy for both beginners and the more skilled users, and was just what I had been looking for.
The guys (Andrew and Leigh) taught in a way that was both entertaining and educational, and nothing was too much trouble and no question was left unanswered. The best bit was stripping everything back to the basics of photography and really getting to understand your camera and how to get the best out of it.
I loved the course so much; I went back and did it again a few months later. If you want the best out of your camera and to get awesome results, super quickly. I highly recommend this course to beginners and experienced alike.” – Tina Bartley
