Switch to Australia Stock Photos & Video

Some Housekeeping before I head off to The Kimberley

25 Sep 2010 at 8:45pm

I just got back last night at Midnight from an awesome trip to Karratha shooting Altered Landscapes with some of the best Art Photographers in Australia.
Karratha is the place to go if you want to do this style of photography. I can’t show you the best stuff as it is been kept aside for an exhibition in February. This is an aerial shot from a Cessna we hired for a couple of hours. I love the simplicity of this image.

I am now repacking my bags and head off tomorrow for a couple of weeks up in the Kimbereley including a stay at James Price Point to see what it is all about. If you are meeting up with us or are wanting to, we are meeting at JPP at around lunchtime on the 1st of October. We will be camping out there for a few days at least. Come along if you can make it. Should be great fun and a good opportunity to shoot together.

I have just announced a second Bunker Bay workshop on the 15th and 16th of January 2011 with Nick Rains. The first workshop filled in 4 hours and this one is already half full. If you want to book it go to Nicks Website and register.

Lastly my email account has maxed out at over 350 when I got back last night from Karratha. It is going to be impossible to reply to everyone so if I miss you out please resend your inquiry in a couple of weeks time when I will be home. Sorry for those that have been waiting for a reply. It is just out of control at the moment.

  3. Tom Parkes says:

  5. David Sobik says:

    Nice clean image Christian. Enjoy JPP!

    Cheers mate.

  6. Tom Putt says:

    Nice shot. Enter it in appa

  7. Very good, simplicity to a point where it’s hard to believe this is a photo that something so simplistic exists in our messy world.

  8. Dan Proud says:

    Nice image mate.

    I was taking some snaps of the salt piles in Port Hedland today, when I was nearly spear tackled by a lady security guard. Basically she told me to leave town because any photography in Port Hedland is illegal, a criminal offence, and will be reported to the police. Yes that’s right, she actually said “PHOTOGRAPHY IN PORT HEDLAND IS ILLEGAL”. Crazy stuff hey, a Japanese tourist wouldn’t stand a chance. So in complete anger and frustration I high-tailed it back to the countryside to find a nice Pilbara landscape to shoot. Ridiculous.

    Sorry for venting on your blog CF!!

      Dan you should have told her to call the cops and then in front of her the cops would have said there is no Criminal Offence to take a photograph. Your only worry would be if you were trespassing. So many of these security guards are so miss informed, it is a massive bluff to scare people.

    • wow that is crazy… nearly spear tackled by a security guard for using a camera haha I should have gone to that rally in Sydney this is becoming a joke what next?

  9. Will Ophuis says:

    Nice stuff CF, would love to see the rest of these shots! and Dan that’s a joke! unless you were on private property of course or in Iran…….

  10. Brett Morgan says:

    Hi Christian,
    I think someone has highjacked your landscape 500 site mate can’t get on it and comes up as hacked eh.

  11. Lyn Carlin says:

    Having the same problem, are people stampeding this competition ?

  12. Great shot! I would love the opportunity to shoot from the air. I will definitely have to add that to the bucket list.

    Dan, never fear as I hear the new Canon 5DMKVVXXX is shipping with a cloaking device so you can shoot anywhere you want without fear being caught. Might be waiting 50 years though 🙂

    Simplicity at its best

    Less is more! Very captivating – looks a bit like part of a Paul Parin triptych (which I think is a good thing!).

  15. Tanya Smith says:

    I agree, less is more . . . love this shot / want this shot!
