sorry but I have been flat out these past weeks and was in Perth yesterday. I didn’t know the magazine was out yet as I hadn’t looked in the newsagency. It turned out pretty well I think and thank Peter for putting me into one of his awesome mags. There have been some fantastic skys in the past few days, hope you have been getting amongst it!! I have been looking after the kids…….bummer.

The 8th of March course is now fully booked, the next course will probably be early April so if you want to get on let me know as soon as the date is announced. There are only 10 spots available each time so keep an eye out. I should have worked out all the bugs on the first 10 victims so the second course will be the one to be on 🙂

I have just announced the date for the first course outlining my workflow the 8th of March. I have one spot left to fill so please let me know if you wish to attend. I will announce more dates soon. The course is being held at my Dunsborough gallery.

Got blown back from Albany with not much to write home about. The skys were ok but nothing to inspiring. I read that Albany has on average only 7 days a year when the wind isn’t strong enough to turn the wind turbines. We didn’t get one of those days!!! Here is a photo of my brother doing some video with the Canon XH-A1.

Peter Eastway has updated some photos on his website. I believe he is one of Australias most creative photographers and his work inspires me more than any other. Don’t worry Pete I’m not getting stalkerish!! You are way too male and middle aged for my liking!!! I have asked Pete to be a guest blogger so here’s the plan. If you want to hear from him please visit his site, send him an email and tell him you want some of his tips on this blog. The more to do that the better the chance of getting him to do it. He is a busy man with several magazines he edits. If you haven’t seen Better Digital or Better Photoshop Techniques then you are missing out. Check him out, his work shows you what is capable with a bit of thought and a creative slant. Oh and buy his magazines, I do and they are full of great ideas. Oh and don’t forget to tell him what a great bloke I am!! The above photo is Pete’s new image of Sugarloaf Rock, love this shot, I’m so jealous!!!

How is this for a perfect day. Managed to drag myself away from the computer after looking up for a second and seeing the fluffy clouds all over the sky. That boat adds to the scene and if I can find who owns it I might have a sale. I took a shot of a small yacht in Esperance and I went up to the owner and told him about it. 6 months later he bought one, you have to make things happen sometimes. I also took some photos of Castle Bay and Eagle bay whilst I was at it. It was pretty hot and sweaty work but someone has to do it!! 9 image stitch with the 1ds and 50mm lens. No polariser just pure glass baby!!
