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!!!

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.

Hi all, sorry if I haven’t been getting back to people regarding their questions. I thought I send in one post that will help solve all the riddles of the universe and beyond! OK lets go:-
I no longer use a pano head. The old 360 precision has been sold to a mate who runs a 1Ds Mark III. It didn’t fit the new 5D anyway so I thought I had better just make do with what I had. What I have found is I don’t need the pano head but what I do have kind of works the same. PT GUI is so good anyway it fixes plenty of stitching stuff ups. So I have one of these http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart_accessories&A=details&Q=&sku=113383&is=REG and one of these http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart_accessories&A=details&Q=&sku=554092&is=REG
I put it all together on my old shitty Manfrotto tripod with a three way head, you know the old style ones before all the fancy pistol grip crap came out. And guess what???? it works a treat. So there you are save your money and buy this gear. Speak to Brendan at PRA Imaging in Perth. Tell him I sent ya so he will feel like he owes me!!! hehe
The exhibition ends this weekend and I am having a talk on the images, how I took them etc and a general run down on each one. Everyone is welcome but it is not a workshop hence the cost “zero, zilch, nada, nothing” It is just a get together so I can share my experiences with who ever is interested. Hope to see you guys there. There will obviously be some insight as to how I achieved the pics so it will still be informative. It kicks off at 1pm this Sunday the 8th of March at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre. If you haven’t seen the exhibition yet Sunday will be your last chance.
Thanks for all the comments on the book, I have gone off all the covers now, I’m sick of them already. Will keep developing new ideas for comment.
The TNFP shirt was officially launched last week at the exhibition. I have orders for 6 so far but expect this number to increase dramatically after this post “hint, hint” I am still averaging about 6 google searches a day for people wanting to find out about the TNFP filter. Don’t get on the bandwagon too late when it is no longer cool to have a TNFP shirt. I have mine on today and feel pretty good when people ask me what it means, except of course when it is a nice little old lady. I will be wearing it to PMA this year and will be on the lookout for others that might turn up in the crowd. $35 is so cheap for a custom Limited Edition shirt anyway.

This is a pic I took late last week at Mitchell Rocks. This kid was playing in the water and playing with death, his mum was watching but the surf was huge. I would have been a little concerned if it was my child. Anyway it is a 9 image stitch. The big question……….keep the kid or get rid of him?? Let me know what you think. When I say get rid of him, I don’t mean in a wooden box underbelly style, just a bit of photoshop stamping!! (for all you stalkers out there!)
