Urban Exploration with the Quattro

Urban Exploration with the Quattro

PC5111SQ

Tony Hewitt and I had a very successful Workshop on Saturday starting with a 6.30 walk around the city to find all those elusive but highly rewarding urban images we love to shoot. The participants on the workshop got some great images and we all soon realised just how much fantastic material was there. After that we had a nice breakfast and then it was on to Team Digital to do our classroom presentations.

It was a fun day out for everyone and there were lots of laughs as well as inspiration, ideas and techniques to take home.

Keep an eye out for our next excellent adventure.

“Below”, aerial photography

PA0008Ph

 

Sometimes from the air you get a sense of mans endeavours. We can create amazing art just by placing objects on the ground. I wonder what this is going to make?

Below is gaining momentum. The two exhibitions being held at my Dunsborough and Mandurah galleries should be very interesting. Hope you can all get in to see them.

“BELOW”, the exhibition. Coming this April

“BELOW”, the exhibition. Coming this April

"Below" coming soon.

“Below” coming soon.

Looking from above you get a different picture of the Australian landscape. When what is below is hidden from our view it can be the only way to truly appreciate what is there.

Lake Lefroy has one of the strangest altered landscapes in Australia. Gold and Nickel are mined here. Huge machines take scoops out of the lake bed looking for the precious metals. The impact when viewed from the air can only be described as abstract art.

The Kalgoorlie Super Pit

The Kalgoorlie Super Pit

The Super Pit KL0003Ph

 

The Super pit in Kalgoorlie is an amazing big man made hole on the edge of town. It is so big it creates its own weather patterns. Well this was according to my pilot who flew me around this thing a few times. I did notice a lot of turbulence whilst flying ¬†over the top even at 4000 ft. He also said lots of birds are found dead at the bottom as once they go it they can’t get back out. Don’t know how that works but it is an interesting thing to look into. It is amazing what man will do for a rock that someone decided was worth something. On reading a book on the Batavia wreck, none of these riches have any value if you are starving and dying of thirst. We sure have our priorities screwed up.

Channeling Gursky and Burtynsky. What great names for photographers.

The Truck!

The Truck!

P3000PhI shot this last night with Markie Mark Stothard, Neil Spool Pritchard and Glenn, Marks mate and owner of the above vehicle. Channeling my inner bogan I worked this tirelessly thinking back to my youth when I had a Gallant wagon with mag wheels and a surfboard permanently welded to the roof racks. Ahhh those were the days!

Stupidly though I thought I would beat Mark to the post of this shoot, what was I thinking!!!

Shot on the awesome Phase One IQ180. I was surrounded by D800e’s last night, I think I might be coming down with a Nikon allergy!

Save the Kimberley Concert

Save the Kimberley Concert

STK1000PhP

Yesterday was an amazing day. Not just for the three excellent bands but because so many of you turned out to oppose the gas plant at James Price Point. It was an unbelievable sight.

The day started with a press conference with the musicians and representatives from the environmental groups. They all had their turn to talk about what was important to them. It was great to see. We were lucky to get all access passes to cover the event however we wanted. I have to say watching a concert from the stage is a great experience, I am spoilt now, will have to try and get these gigs all the time.

First off was Ball Park Music, they were fantastic, then Missy Higgins who is an unbelievable talent and finished up with John Butler who just went off. You could see how proud he was of the day and the turnout.

The speakers were fantastic, all of them. Bob Brown delivered a speech that would have had Colin Barnett shaking in his boots. Spoken with such passion and bringing in to focus what exactly is at stake for the Kimberley if we don’t make a stand.

Between acts the musicians lead a march through the streets of Fremantle. I was up high in a building overlooking South Terrace. There were so many people the line went past me for about half an hour. I was staggered by just how many people were there.

Yesterday I felt the fight was won, there was so much good feeling and positive energy, no I am not trying to sound like a hippie! There is only one person we need to convince that it is a bad idea and that is our illustrious leader Mr Barnett. Hope he was watching the news last night. I might have to send him this photo so he knows he is on borrowed time!

As we are all saying, take the gas, make the jobs, just don’t destroy the Kimberley to do it.
