Karri Valley Resort – Masterclass with Tony Hewitt
The venue for this Masterclass is one of Western Australia’s hidden jewels of tranquility –Karri Valley Resort, Pemberton.
Nestled on the edge of trout filled Lake Beedelup and surrounded by majestic karri forests, the natural charm of Karri Valley Resort provides the perfect setting for the theme of this Masterclass No. 4 – “The Hidden Dimension”.
The focus will be on ways to create deeper photographs as these images give us more engaging one-frame pictorial stories. Images created with greater depth pull readers in, invite them not only to look at your photographs, but look into them, to take a visual journey through your image and see and feel the emotion you saw and felt when you pressed the shutter.
Accommodation for participants has been reserved in the best Lakeside Rooms, with private balconies overlooking the lake and forest. These are twin-shared rooms. Those wishing to have a private bedroom may stay in the chalets set in the forest, at no additional cost.
Photographers residing close to Karri Valleyand who do not require accommodation, dinners etc., may register for the Masterclass lectures and photographic shoots only. A reduced fee applies for this option.
The dates are Fri 9th (for dinner), Sat 10th & Sun 11th September 2011.

My good mate Tony “Tone” Hewitt is running an awesome workshop on Rottnest with Denis Glennon. This will be an opportunity to get inside the head of one of Australia’s most awarded photographers. Tony has taught me more about creating stunning images than anyone and his enthusiasm will rub off when you are all together and the creative juices are flowing. Tony has a unique vision. What he has shown me is a brilliant photograph isn’t created in Photoshop, it is created in your mind. He will teach you that your own unique vision is your most powerful tool. Below is some more info on the workshop. Get on it.

Follow the link here to join Denis on a journey to the Okavango Delta in Botswana
Botswana’s Okavango Delta is remarkable because it is a wetland paradise in the middle of the arid Kalahari Desert. Each year floodwater flows into the Okavango from over 1000km away, creating a unique wetland that sustains a mesmerizing variety of wildlife. Without this water, the area would be as featureless as that of the surrounding Kalahari Desert.
Instead, it is one of the most sought after places in the world for wildlife and nature photographers. It is a shimmering, matchless watery jewel in the midst of inhospitable surroundings. It’s flat, wildlife-packed expanses are awash with African colours and vistas. For most photographers wishing to experience one of nature’s “untouched” jewels, this part of Africa is unsurpassed.
I am arranging an exclusive photo tour to Hokkaido, Japan, with my US-based colleague and professional wildlife photographer Robert O’Toole, in Feb/Mar 2011.
There will be a maximum of twelve photographers, likely to be six from Australia and six from USA; should be a great learning experience not to mention the joy of travelling with a group of talented photographers.
The focus will be on the captivating snow monkeys, Steller’s eagles, landscapes, culture and more.

If you would be kind enough to let your colleagues know about the tour, through your website, this would be much appreciated and if anyone is interested I will keep them updated on dates, costs etc.
The tour will last 10 -12 days.
This is a great opportunity to photograph Japan and from what I have been told it is an amazing place to travel. Hope you can get along to it.
