2019 is here!

2 Jan 2019 at 8:41am

2019 is here!

What better way to welcome in the new year with a new image.  Well technically it isn’t a new image but it is the first time I have posted it.  It was shot a couple of months ago from memory.

2018 was the year of the aerial once again.  In fact I think aerial photography has exploded into the mainstream over the past decade.  From the early days of Richard Waldendorp shooting from a plane to todays drones redefining what is possible. It has been an exciting ride, well it used to be up in a light aircraft or helicopter.  I prefer a drone these days for lots of reasons, most being the ability to hover and compose more effectively.  The ability to shoot straight down without and angle means the image can be rotated in any direction in post and still look like it was shot properly.

I love aerials but they aren’t my passion.  I prefer the banal urban landscape and this is what I have been exploring a lot in the past 9 years.

So what is new in 2019 for me?  Possibly a new camera system, obviously new images,  we have a new staff member and new ways of printing and displaying photographs.  But I want to continue to talk more about deeper issues.  Issues relating to the environment and how we can all do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint.  I also want to talk more about the need for action to protect our only lifeboat, one that is increasingly under threat.  Don’t worry,  I won’t be getting all preachy on you but hopefully through our love for photography and the natural world inspiration will come and you can too influence your family and friends.  No finger pointing here just the facts and good, open and honest discussions.

It is going to be a year of excitement and hopefully positive change.  Thanks to all of you for interacting with my posts on Facebook and Insta, for all the likes, the chats in the gallery and the goodwill.  We really all have more in common than differences.  Clean air, water, food on the table, a roof over our head, freedom of thought, democracy and a government that looks after the people.  We all want that.  Basic human rights.

See you on the beaches, in the gallery or on the side of a mountain looking for magic light!

Another Salt Pond

Another Salt Pond

Who doesn’t like a salt pond? What??? Is there someone out there who doesn’t? I don’t believe it. Some of the best aerial images I have seen are over these amazing places. Again WA has the best ones (sorry the rest of the country) but then everything is better in WA. With a few exceptions like Dunsborough which really is horrible (you should stay away- nothing to see here). This image however was shot in Penong, SA so I have to give them that one. It was taken on a shoot for RM Williams and still one of my favourites to this day.

Lake Dumbleyung

I have been using Canson Infinity papers for years. My favourite being Rag Photographique. Our gallery prints are all made with this paper. I love the matt surface and when it is under glass it looks amazing. Canson have now joined Instagram. You can visit their page here https://www.instagram.com/cansoninfinity/

This image was from a shoot I did for RM Williams and is a section of the amazing Lake Dumbleyung. You can see the full image here http://www.christianfletcher.com.au/photographs/aerial/dumbleyung-lake-western-australia-rmw19/

Solar Energy For Our Local Primary School

One of Australia’s best photographers was kind enough to get behind our solar fundraising effort for our local primary school. Thanks so much Ignacio Palacios.

This beautiful print from Christian Fletcher looks amazing in my office!. It is a brilliant print for just $300… Christian donated the profit of this limited edition image to a P&C fundraising project (Fuel our school) to turn a school into one of the leading solar energy schools in WA. Proud to have contributed to it. Thanks Christian!
