South West Light Seminar – Melbourne 17 Feb
Tickets at Door This Sunday – $245
We still have room for the South West Light Seminar in Melbourne if you’re interested in coming along – it’s on this Sunday 17 February and we’re holding the early bird price at $245 because we’ve been told we didn’t start advertising it early enough! Sorry!
It features the ND5 group, meaning Les Walkling, Tony Hewitt, Christian Fletcher, Michael Fletcher and Peter Eastway. We’ve booked out the State Library of Victoria, Village Roadshow Theatrette and there are five presentations spread across the day, everything from inspiration and creativity to the more practical aspects of Photoshop post-production, colour management and printing.
The event is sponsored by Epson, Canson and Kayell and a similar event which we ran in Western Australia late last year received a really positive response, so if you’re in Melbourne, we’d be delighted to see you there…
State Library of Victoria, Village Roadshow Theatrette, Entry 3, 179 La Trobe St
9.30 am to 4.30 pm (see program)
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN…
Dr Les Walkling – Colour management, contemporary art photography and printing.
Tony Hewitt – Inspiration, vision, creativity.
MIchael Fletcher – The South West Light Documentary – full screening.
Christian Fletcher – Fletch’s Freaky Photoshop
Peter Eastway – Layers for creating photographs.
The South West Light presentation will also be held in Sydney on 7 April 2013 at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour. You can also book Sydney on the website if you wish.

Shot at Elephant Rocks in Denmark. I will be heading down there tomorrow. Hope to get some good light and revisit this place.
If you come along to the South West Light Event in Melbourne I will show you how I edited this image.

I had a full day to myself today so I decided to walk the town and see what I could find. I just love this sort of shooting. The light was perfect for what I wanted to do.
Tonight is the awards night, I won’t come away a winner but everyone who enters learns something about their work and themselves. Peter Eastway is on cloud nine. He got a higher score than me and thats all he needed to do to put me in my place. Still as he tells me, “it’s just a game!!” The best thing is Tony Hewitt beat him so I’m on cloud nine! Rainsy came away with 3 silvers and would have done better if he hadn’t listened to me. The one of his that got 79 was the one I said he had to enter. Sorry mate. What do I know!

Better Digital Camera Magazine have a fantastic competition coming up, and the prizes are CASH baby! , Oh yeah, thats wot I’m talk’n bout! Get all the details here Better Digital Camera Photo Competition
The editors and publishers of Better Digital Camera magazine proudly present a brand new photography competition for non-professional photographers around the world. Judging is online and the process of entering your best photographs is really easy. There is also a choice of categories to enter, and you can enter as many photos as you like in all five categories!
Perhaps most exciting is that every entry receives a score out of 100. The Bronze Award (70 – 79) represent a high standard of photography and winners are to be congratulated. The Silver Award (80 to 81) is what a professional would aspire to, but only a handful of photographers are able to win the elusive Gold Award (90 to 100). Can you do it?
This is a great way to test yourself and all Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners will receive an official certificate by email which they can proudly print and display.
We trust you’ll find all the information you need on these pages. Entry is just $15.00 per image.

Well it has started, a couple of weeks back we had our first of several trips to photograph the South West like it hasn’t been seen before. The same team from the Pilbara Project have gathered along with guest shooter Nick Rains. We have a super team of Landscape photographers
Christian Fletcher – M. Photog AIPP – Australian and Western Australian Landscape Photographer of the year 2011
Michael Fletcher – Australian Fusion (video) Photographer of the Year 2011
Tony Hewitt – GM. Photog AIPP – Western Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year 2004, 2008
Peter Eastway – GM. Photog AIPP – Australian Landscape Photographer of the year 1995, 1996, 1998,
Nick Rains – M. Photog AIPP – Australian Geographic Photographer of the Year 2002, (Guest photographer on this project)
Dr Les Walkling – Artist, Educator, Consultant
The first trip started in Albany and worked its way back to Bridgetown shooting all along the way. Next we are heading inland and following the old country towns to Bremer Bay. For that trip we are taking our own Cessna 172 and Pilot. We hope to shoot a lot from the air as this gives you such a great perspective.
As a group we all have so much fun, the banter between us is constant and having cb radios in the car it only stopped when we were asleep. Here are some pics of the boys. Thanks to Tony and Nick for some of these images.
Stay tuned for more stories to come from the project as well as announcements on the exhibition dates and a super workshop that will blow your minds!!!

This is a teaser video for the Pilbara Project. We are finally coming to the end of the journey, the exhibition is only weeks away. This is the first time Tony Hewitt, Les Walkling, Peter Eastway, Michael Fletcher and myself have exhibited together.
What started out as an idea over a meal has become two exhibitions, a blog, a book and an awareness of the Pilbara none of us ever had before.
You can join us on the opening of both exhibitions. All the details will be posted as they come to hand. It is going to be a huge event with all the photographs and the full 24 min cut of Michaels video. Hope we will see you there.

Don’t forget your entries into the Landscape 500
So far we have only 200 entries so that is pretty good odds. Remember even if you don’t win every photo is scored by the 4 judges. It is a great way to find out just exactly how your images are rated by four of the best in the industry. Nick Rains, Tom Putt, Peter Eastway and David Evans. Between them there are decades of knowledge.
Attached is a photo of an old ute I found inland from Noosa. I gave myself a task, photograph something that could have been shot years ago and make it look like it! Think it worked ?
This is a photo that could be entered into the competition.

I’m off again tonight, (Saturday), to attend the AIPP national conference. There are some amazing speakers so it will be a hoot. On the following weekend Nick Rains and I are running our two day workshop in Noosa. So once again I will be away from the emails to some degree so I’ll be even more behind. If anyone else is heading to Noosa too I’ll see you there.
Two of the guys in this photo will be speaking, Tony Hewitt and Peter Eastway.

Hi all. Peter Eastway kindly offered everyone who attended our Workshop in Karijini a free subscription to Better Photography Magazine plus some images in the next edition due out in September. The three of us were blown away by the photos everyone got and we just put that down to our good teaching techniques. This is a grab of what will be going in the magazine early September. If you were on the workshop just check everything is right, spelling of your names etc and that your happy to go with it. Any complaints can be made to Peter Eastway between midnight and 5am!!
Now due to the success of the Karijini workshop Peter, Tony and myself are going to do it again late March 2011. I am taking names of those who will be interested in coming. Get in quick the last one was full in 3days.
