Pete Eastway, Tony Hewitt and myself are again running our hugely popular Karijini workshop in April 2014. Because of the success of this style of workshop we are now also planning to do a similar workshop this time in Kununurra. So we will have the Pilbara and Kimberley regions both covered for those wanting to escape the colder months.
However this time it is different, this time we have the Australian Photographer of the Year along. Yes thats right Tony Hewitt as you may have heard took out all the major photography awards this year. He is the greatest Landscape photographer to have ever been to Karijini with us! How could you not learn from this guy. How do you think Pete and I get good images, we look at what Tony does. All jokes aside, you will be hard pressed to find a better instructor anywhere in the world better than our Tony Tone.
As for Peter Eastway, he has won the Professional Photographer of the year 3 times, count em, that is THREE times! The guy is a god when it comes to Landscape photography, he also has some of the worst jokes ever told in recent history. Be prepared to be inspired, to laugh and to learn from the second best photographer to ever walk the dusty tracks of Karijini.
Then there is me, humble, quiet, polite and happy to be runner up to these two blokes. Sure I have galleries and the best job in the world selling landscape photographs but do I have the trophy for the Australian Photographer of the year? NO. So what will you get from me? There is only one word to describe that,…………….. PURE AWESOMENESS, ok thats two words. And that is me being humble!
So join us on one or both of these epic adventures. Before you know it YOU will be Australian Photographer of the year and Pete, Tone and myself will be flipping burgers at Macdonalds.

Sorry for the lack of posts, life has been a little busy at the moment. Just got back from a South West Light trip with Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt, Les Walkling, Nick Rains and my brother Michael. It was unbelievable. Just before that I took this photo with my wife on a climb up to Bluff Knoll. We camped at the top overnight and then walked down in the morning. On the way up the light and drama was spectacular. This image above is straight out of the camera. We had rain showers and gods rays all over the place.
Then with the boys we went from Bremmer Bay through the Stirlings to Katanning. We took a plane and pilot with us to do aerials all the way. The stuff we got was mind blowing. Will reveal a little soon but most of the best stuff will be kept for the exhibition that should be happening around June.
I’m off to NZ on Monday morning then fly straight to Tasmania. Will be instructing at a PODAS workshop (Phase One Digital Artist Series) for Phase One with Ken Duncan, Jackie Rankin and Mike Langford. It is going to be brilliant. Then in Tasmania I will be joining Nick Rains to do our Freycinet Workshop.
When I get home I am moving house with my family and then it is Christmas. Full on. The madness starts again in January with more workshops, then again in February, March and April. May we will be in Africa. Getting tired just thinking about it.
Hope you like this shot of the Stirlings. I have decided that great landscape photos need drama. If the weather looks foul, then you should probably be out shooting.

Hi everyone, sorry to be away from the blog for so long, I have been up in the Pilbara again. This time though it was pretty damned cold.
Nick Rains and I have only 3 spots left for our Noosa Workshop if you are keen to come along you need to speak up now. It is an awesome workshop in an awesome location and it will be a lot warmer in the North East of the country.
See the flyer for more details and book with Nick at www.nickrains.com

Nick Rains and I are running another of our two day photographic workshops this time just south of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. See the flyer below and if your keen to learn how to get professional results and be inspired to take your photography to a higher level, let Nick know as soon as possible. Our Tasmania workshop filled in a couple of weeks so this one will be even more popular. There are some beautiful places to photograph on the Sunshine coast and we will be doing some shooting to get photos we can work on during the day classes. The location for the workshop is unbelievable and will be a perfect place to relax and learn. Nick and I both will be staying at the Eumarella Shores Resort so it would be the perfect place to be for the workshop and for the social times after the busy day of shooting and post production.We will have a printer with us and will be teaching you everything you need to know about colour management and fine printing. It will be one not to miss. See you there.
