Got some exciting news about Karijini for next year that is going to be big and not to be missed. Will tell all soon. This is a pic from Handrail pool in Weano Gorge, Karijini. A great spot if your there at the right time of day and year for that matter. I have it all worked out after 6 or 7 trips to this spot.

I will be on the East Coast for 3 months shooting for my new book on Australia. I am thinking about running my night course over there if I can get enough interest. I will be in all states and the NT hopefully so if you could let me know if you would come that would help my decision to do them. It will be the same as what I hold in WA, i.e. cost $250 and includes free wine, Desert and a workbook. Not to mention lots of fun and learning.
This image was from a shoot I had last week with Mark. I worked this image for 1.5 hours then resized it for the web. Then I went and saved it that size and closed it down realizing I didn’t do a SAVE AS. Fudge’n Hell. Always hit save as, always hit save as, always hit save as………….
Also just clicked over 150,000 hits in 15 months. Man have I typed my little hands off!!!

Hi all, this course has filled faster than I thought and I now only have one spot left. If you want to come let me know ASAP.

Hows that for a bit of pressure selling!!! I am going to run a course on the 18th of April at my Dunsborough gallery at 7.30 pm. It will be $250 per person and go for around 5 hours. I will cover all aspects of my workflow from capture to fine art printing. If you are wanting to get on for the last workshop I will be running for a whilst let me know asap. From May to August I will be away on the East coast getting pics for what I hope will be a book on Australia.

[vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/3769695] This is a vid Michael put together from our Rio job last week. Mostly shot with the Canon tilt shift lenses kindly donated by Canon and Team Digital. Thanks Ben for getting us a couple to try. If your too young to know about the Thunderbirds (Stakky) then look it up on google. Enjoy.
Due to the sensitive nature of this video we have had to remove it from circulation. We don’t want to be sued by Rio Tinto now do we !!

[vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/3712054] This is the latest video from Michael of our trip to Karijini last week. This is such a great place and watching the video makes me want to go back into the gorges. Mark is the other mug in the shots, a couple of good looking lads, what do you reckon!!! Give that Tom Putt a run for his money!

Ok it is a bit of a swipe at Flemmings Hawk Dreaming but it just seemed to work so nicely. This is a pic of my mate Mark taking pics at Oxer lookout where all the gorges meet. A great place to wear shoes with grip. Mark had his thongs on so he was safe!!!! I love this place and have to thank Mark for adding scale to my shot. Now if only he was wearing a bikini………………..and yes was a blonde………………….all right, female too!! 🙂

Sorry can’t show you the pic anymore as we can’t show Rio’s plants and technology off to the masses, that is you guys and girls. This is the first pic from my Rio Tinto job. It was good fun and my first time on a mine site, geez they are pretty strict on the safety stuff!! This was a 6 image stitch taken on the horizontal. It was an amazing plant and looked mint at night. Unfortunately we couldn’t get close to the big machinery but weren’t there to photograph it anyway.
