[vimeo http://vimeo.com/5344068] This is a video Brent knocked up of our trip to Canyon X etc. This is a pretty good effort since he is sitting editing the video with two drips in his arms. He has had a bad bug for a while and it has flared up recently. Poor bloke has to fly to America tomorrow, not something I would be looking forward to if I was crook! Then he isn’t scared of heights and big waves so no little bug is going to stop him. Cheers mate for the video and enjoy the states.
On another note I managed a silver, two silver with distinctions and a gold for my entries to this years APPA awards. I was blown away when the call came from Tommy Putt saying I was a bastard, not only that, I got my first iphone today. Man that Apple shop in Sydney is very cool.

This is from tonight at a place Brent calls Jurassic Park.
Again it is a scramble across slippery wet rock before getting washed to your death by the heavy swell that was running. Good fun, I think!!! Still trying to find some new boxer shorts after some impressive set waves got a little too close. Had my shoes soaked 4 times today from not looking at the ocean carefully enough. This is a dangerous game taking photos, and that is just from the harsh blog posts when the horizons aren’t straight. Thanks to Brent for light painting these rocks for us (his mate Tim joined us) To say I got a bit of sledging for being a WA shooter was an understatement. Yes I know I have a spelling mistake in the title!!!

This is a quick pic of Brent at Canyon X. He took me there this morning. Will do some proper workings tonight. Great spot, a little scary getting down there……. ok a lot scary!!!

I am in Sydney for PMA and for some shooting of the amazing seascape locations they have over here. Brent Pearson is taking me to Canyon X tomorrow, the super secret spot only a few get to see. Can’t wait. Other highlights will be the Apple superstore in the City on Friday and a trip to Ken Duncans gallery in Erina. Matty Lauder and I will go any have a KD Latte in the cafe. Will give the latte a master chef style critique. Had an awesome sunny day here and managed to soak my boots at the Mona Vale baths when the sea suddenly decided to over fill the pool. Great fun! Pics to come soon.

This light was magic and was something I had been hoping for up in the mountains. This scene was not far from Lake Tinaroo, where we were staying. Three image handheld stitch.

These silo’s looked great and B&W suited the look I wanted for them. At night the white Cockys would land up the top.

Have you ever been to a place and realised it was nothing like what you imagined???? Enter the Millaa Millaa falls. I saw Ken Duncans pic of this waterfall and thought that is a magic spot. The reality is somewhat different. Toilets, carpark and a cement platform at the base of the falls to walk out on all in view of the main falls. In fact you could almost shoot this from your car window. How to stuff up a place in three easy steps. I shouldn’t complain though, you don’t need to walk very far. Still if I didn’t tell you you would go there thinking what a magic place it must be, till you smelt the toilets!!

Found this gem at an airstrip on the Atherton Tablelands. Love my planes.

Taken during a dark moment when it had been overcast for the last 2 weeks whilst surrounded by sugar cane………………. and I’m a sweet tooth! I don’t know about anyone else but I get really down when the light is average or I miss the light. Have to stop taking this all too seriously, it is like getting to the end of Funniest Home Videos and thinking you still had 15 minutes of stupid people hurting themselves but then realising the last videos you will see are ones you already saw!!! man thats tough!!

This is an example of looking around for something to photograph when the light outside is average. Actually I have decided there is no bad light just varying degrees of good light. You can capture an image in any conditions, you just need to know what looks best in the light you have available. This old phone in a museum at the train station in Cairns looked great. Just love the old stuff. The red walls of the phone box added to the feel. This is one of my favourites.
