A Day at the Beach


 

A day at the beach – I don’t think there is a better way to start the month of March!

Sometimes the simplest photos make the best photos. What do you think? Is this photo too boring?

Chris and Charlie’s Wedding at Maitraya


I hope you enjoy this small selection of photographs I captured at Chris and Charlie’s wedding.

The wedding was held at the stunning Maitraya Luxury Private Retreat, located near Albany, Western Australia. If you haven’t stayed at Maitraya before I would certainly recommend it! The views are breathtaking and the accommodation is all class. Hey even Lady Gaga has even stayed there so it must be good!

The bridal party, family and guests were all fantastic to work with. I enjoyed photographing all the smiles and love for Chris and Charlie, so thank you to everyone who made this wedding truly spectacular!

Morning Fog


This photo was taken at Gordon River in Western Australia which is a very small patch of water between Perth and Albany. For some reason I keep getting the name mixed up with Gregory River. Oh well…I don’t really like this image because I think the fog has contributed to the grain in the final image.

Please be brutally honest (I mean very brutal please) and let me know what you think about the overall image. Does this image rock your boat or should I have kept it in the archives? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Nanarup Fine Art Landscape


Nanarup located near Maitreya Private Retreat

I have had this image sitting on my hard drive for some time. The image has been stitched together from 18 images to create my latest fine art landscape.

I can’t wait to head back to this location at the end of the month to photograph another wedding at the beautiful Maitreya Private Retreat.

Albany Entertainment Centre


One of my first stops on my recent holiday was at the Albany Entertainment Centre. When I arrived in Albany I sent a message out on Facebook to see if anyone was keen to join me for a night photography shoot at Middleton Beach.

Local photographer Tina Bartley jumped at the idea. I have quite a bit of respect for this amazing lady. Tina is an amazing photographer with a keen eye for detail and composition. I have known Tina for some time as we meet on one of my courses I ran with Andrew Halsall while I lived in Albany (a few years back).

Thanks Tina for coming along and driving me around that night! I look forward to seeing many more of your fabulous images. Here is one of mine images from the night taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1.

Spring at Middleton Beach


I’m back from my little trip away! It feels great to be back in the chair after having a small holiday. I will be planning on posting a few images in the next few weeks in between editing a beautiful wedding photographed in Perth.

This ethereal photograph was taken as a two image stitch on the beautiful Fujifilm X-Pro 1 using Velvia mode.

Dutch Tilt at Cosy Corner


Sometimes rules are meant to be broken.

Take this shot for example I deliberately shot this photo with a dutch tilt to enhance the motion of the oncoming wave. If I had photographed this image with a straight horizon the motion of the wave wouldn’t have the same effect. What do you think? Do you think it works without having the horizon straight?

Until next time – Happy Shooting.
