Switch to Australia Stock Photos & Video

Team Putt

28 Dec 2008 at 11:19am

Hi all, hope your Christmas was a great one and Santa bought you a 5D mark II, or something almost as good. Hopefully there were no Nikons in the sack this year. I wouldn’t want shares in that company now the 5D mark II is out.
We just had a visit from the one and only Tom “Tommy P” Putt and his wife Rebecca and kids. It was a great afternoon spending time with arguably one of Australia’s sexiest self proclaimed photographers. Tommy P or just P as I like to call him, rocked up like the rockstar he is, in a chauffeur driven limo with all the fruit. I was lucky to have some freshly shucked oysters and a bottle of Grange for him as this is what he must have on a regular basis. We talked about all sorts of things from him to what he was doing and just laughed and laughed. You know what, he probably is the sexiest photographer on the planet, after Peter Eastway and Ken Duncan. oh and mate the hair piece looked perfect. Cheers guys for a fun arvo. The man!

January Workshop

19 Dec 2008 at 2:00am

two The date for the next workshop I will be holding at my Dunsborough Gallery is Saturday January the 10th 2009. It is my usual workshop that I held all last year. I cover my workflow from capture to fine art printing. You get a workshop manual, free wine and desert and 18 years of experience. Will short track you to taking better photographs. Cost is $250 and starts at 7.30pm at my gallery. Goes for 4 to 5 hours and is relaxed and fun, well I think it is!!! Check my blog for comments regarding the courses if you are unsure about the value of attending.

This photo is from the 5D again, handheld with the 400mm f/5.6. Two images stitched. Neal knows these Grass trees, they are hard to miss driving down Bussell Hwy on the way to Margaret River. Still think they could look brilliant with the right lens and the right light. Or maybe a moonlight shot with the 5D Mark II and a star trail!!! hmmm…..

Better Photography Magazine

16 Dec 2008 at 6:27am

magazine For those of you wanting a magazine full of great tips and tricks, not to mention some mint photographers, check out the summer edition of Better Photography Magazine. Ok when I talked about mint photographers I was referring to myself!!! There are a couple of other dodgy shooters in there too like Tom “Tommy” Putt (the prettiest man in his own lunchbox) and Matt Lauder (who makes Tom Putt look like Elmer Fudd). This is Peter Eastways magazine if you didn’t already know, probably the second greatest photographer to ever walk the planet! Who is the greatest I hear you say? Well work it out people, it isn’t rocket science………………..!!! 🙂

Even Horses love the new 5D Mark II

15 Dec 2008 at 6:51am

horses I was in Pemberton on Friday and Saturday doing a shoot for Bellarmine Winery which BTW is owned by Michael Schumachers dad. How’s that for a stretch at name dropping!! These two lovely horses decided to pose for me so I clicked away handheld with the 5D and 400mm lens. Out of the car window too, my favourite shooting position!!!! I think they were together if you know what I’m saying. You can easily see which one is the male and which one is the female! Well I think I know!!! Any horse people out there who might know?? Really I have no idea, all I know is I get itchy around these guys!

956 hits in one day thanks to the 5D Mark II

11 Dec 2008 at 2:42am

3200-boats This is another pic from a couple of nights ago. The stats on this pic are:- f/1.6, 0.6 sec, 3200 iso. Image was taken at 9.22pm. Had to run some Noise Ninja over it to make it useable but it responded pretty well. I would like to see how something like this would print, will have to do some tests. 956 hits in one day, I was so hoping it would get to 1000 but that will be something to look forward to over the coming months. All thanks to the interest in the new 5D and you guys for having a look at what it can do. Keep an eye out for more new stuff. Michael is working on some video as I type, he is a bit slower than me to get onto stuff, have to keep asking him, “where’s the footage”. You can imagine what he tells me to do! Can’t post it as little kids like Stakky are tuning in!

More night shots from the 5D

10 Dec 2008 at 4:28am

geo-bay-2 This is a stitch, obviously. Again shot at 800 iso. This one is a little more noisey than the other as I under exposed it by a couple of stops. Doh!!! The end result is pretty good and if printed on canvas would be shmick! Forgot to mention this was taken about 9.15pm in the dark with a bit of moonlight.

5d mark II Sunrise

10 Dec 2008 at 3:44am

point-piquet Photo from this morning. I was on vapours (battery power light flashing red, watch Top Gun) and kept praying please god give me this last shot, you’d do it for Ken Duncan! Anyway I must be in good with him as I shot away and nothing died!! No lightning bolts aimed my way either!! Stitched photo without the pano head. Nothing amazing about the stats, took it like I normally would with the obsolete 1Ds Mark II. Even the battery on the 5D is mint!!! hehe
