A Unique Photography Workshop

17 Jul 2012 at 4:30pm

A great friend of mine is running another of her successful photography workshops. If you are keen to get a real artistic slant on photography and looking to push yourself beyond the “classic” landscape this would be for you.

 

Julie’s Photography Retreat is at the luxurious Arajilla Retreat and is an opportunity of a lifetime; whether you are an enthusiast, established practicing photographer or photo-media artist; to learn to ‘see’ beyond what is apparently visible; to connect with the ‘essence of place or experience’; and learn to express your own personal voice through your photography.  For more information go to Julie’s Photographic Retreat

14 Jan 2011 at 10:20am

STOP THE PRESS, ONLY 30 SPOTS LEFT

The True North Australia day Rottnest Workshop (phew what a mouth full)  is all systems go. For those that need a little more detail here it is.

THE DETAILS

Date – 26th of January 2011

Leaving – 6 Rous Head Road, North Fremantle (next to Rottnest ferry terminal.  Parking available), at 9am (arrive at 8.30am, don’t be late) Returns 10.30pm to same location. Parking in the yard.

Cost is $295 per person which includes the cruise to Rottnest on True North, the workshops, lunch and morning and afternoon teas.

Four speakers – Tony Hewitt, Nick Rains, Michael Fletcher and Christian Fletcher.

Only 49 places left as of yesterday so booking essential in the next week. (Limited to 100)

To book your place email or call the True North office. 08 9192 1829  or cruise@northstarcruises.com.au

SO WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING ON THE DAY

We will cruise to Rottnest whilst we get a run down from Tony on the days events. Then it will be lay back relax and feel the cool breeze in your face as True North makes it way across to the island.

We will then anchor off Longreach Bay and the workshops will commence. The group will be split into two. Half staying upstairs the rest going downstairs. The speakers will each talk twice so everyone gets to hear all 4.

After the first two talks we have lunch and a time to relax and soak up the information you have just been given. Don’t drink too much at this stage as you will be a bit sleepy for round two of the talks.

After the talks you will have a bit of time to unwind check out the sponsors tables with their latest equipment and workshop deals and then it will be a short tender ride to the island for a sunset shoot with Tony, Nick, Michael and Christian as your guides. Learn how the pro’s shoot a bonus to the already full days schedule.

Once back on board we will take time to have a drink and mingle with like minded people where the conversations will definitely be photography or who is more famous, Merv or Muzz. Once we pull anchor it will be a slow cruise back to Fremantle and time to say good bye till next time. If you love the True North Experience you will be able to get some information on upcoming cruises and the photographic holidays of a lifetime.

THE COMPETITION

Last year we held a competition for the best photo taken on the day. This year it is going to be even better.

Thanks to Team Digital, F-Stop bags and Fitzgerald Photo Lab we have some awesome prizes for the lucky ones who manage to snap a bit of gold. This is only open to those who come to the workshop so your chances of winning are pretty good.

Rottnest on True North Update

23 Nov 2009 at 1:59am

Well the response has been fantastic, I guess the chance to get aboard this magnificent vessel is too much to pass up, forget the dodgy speakers. So now there is only 12 spots left from the 100 on offer. If you think you can make it ring the girls at Northstar Cruises asap. See you there.

What do you do when the light is average?

8 Sep 2009 at 9:55am

egret

mangrove leaves

spinifex

Shoot in Black and White and point the camera towards the ground. We have been out in some awesome landscapes but if the light isn’t doing it, it can still be hard getting a great shot. Still it is always possible to get a photos of something. Saw some great rock art today and tomorrow we hit King George falls. Did I mention I caught my first Barra yesterday. The one I lost was close to the magic 1 meter mark, that thing was a beast, glad it got off though, would have been a shame to kill something so awesome.
The trip will be ending soon, I think I might leave with a tear in my eye. The crew are amazing and work so hard, we don’t do Jack!!! In fact if you asked nicely they might even wipe your bum for you so you absolutely don’t have to do anything.!!!
Had a heli picknick at Eagle Falls today, wooooowww, it was the best.

Last Perth workshop till the end of the year

21 Apr 2009 at 5:30am

course-poster-prai I have been under the pump to run one more workshop before heading off to the East coast to shoot the place up, so here it is. To be held on the 5th of May at 6.30pm at PRA Imaging. I’m sure Brendan will have some super red hot deals on the night too if anyone wants to buy a new Nikon or Canon! See the brochure for more details. Hope you can get to it. Sorry to those who just drove to Dunsborough to attend the last workshop, think of it as a forced holiday and I was doing you a favour. :-0) Details of PRA can be found here.

Cheers
