True North Rotto workshop Extravaganza

27 Jan 2010 at 6:42am

Well the Rottnest workshop is over for the year and I think it was a great success. There was a great turnout for the day and the speakers, the crew, the food and Boat were awesome. I had a fantastic time and hope you all gained a bit of information and motivation throughout the day. A big thanks goes to my good bud Markie Stothard for having the vision to believe this could work and for having the perfect platform to hold such an amazing workshop. Nothing like a 50m luxury boat to “Go wild in Style” The day went pretty smoothly and when I left at 10pm the staff were still working cleaning the boat. They work so hard and you should see what they do on a True North cruise. Hopefully a lot of you will soon experience what it is like to travel on this amazing vessel, to some amazing locations and be treated like kings.

Thanks to Tony Hewitt, Nick Rains and Glen Cowins for putting on great talks, my wife said Glen was the best, we are now filing for a divorce!!

Now don’t forget the sponsors, Benny and Trevo from Team Digital and Paulie Paul from Fitzgeralds. These guys have given you some stuff in the show bags to chew over and make sure you support them as they have supported us and the photographic community at large.

Also to Muzz for organising the best video ever, I was blown away and so humbled by the effort he and the others put in to make a awesome video and probably the funniest thing I have seen in years. Thanks to the crew that submitted videos, I think Merv’s accusation might have some truth in it. As for Tommy Putts, that is definitely true, go the pink feather Boa !! Brent your much too kind and the line at the end re Nikon was a beauty! Cheers for that. Tony, you will need more than a wire cage to hide your secrets from me, you are an inspiration. As for the others, Peter Eastway, Ken Duncan and Peter Lik, I’m sure given more time something could have been done to personalize the messages a bit more but being the best in the game we have to agree you probably are too damned busy. Pete, do you know the story of Pinocchio??

Thanks to everyone who came along to share the day with us.

The photo of True North was taken by Jon Davison What a great shot!

Don’t forget the Boat Trip!!

22 Jan 2010 at 7:07am

As if that is going to happen!! Just so you all know where you have to go to get on the boat, here is a map of the street it is on.

True North will depart from North Port Boat Lifters at 1100 hrs.

Guests should plan to arrive in plenty of time say by 1030 hrs.

The address at North Port Boat Lifters is:

Sultan Way North Fremantle: Take the first right past Port Beach on the Coast Rd at Rudderham Drive, turn right into North Mole Drive and then left into Rous Head Rd. Sultan Way and North Port Boat Lifters is the second Road on the right.

Paul from Fitzgeralds has told me he has some great specials on all his printing and mounting services so it will be great to have him on board to add some value.

I also want to thank Mark Stothard and his staff for allowing us to get on what will be the benchmark for photographic workshops in Australia. You all know Markie through his blog but make sure you get to say hello to him on the day as he is probably the most motivated person I have ever met. Let some of that rub off on to you and the world will be your oyster.

The other big thanks goes out to Ben from Team Digital
Ben is a guy who puts serve into service! He is here on this planet only to serve us hungry photographers. I have known Ben for almost 20 years, half my life you could say, and he has been nothing but helpful and generous with his time. Make sure you have a chat with Ben during the cruise and discuss your needs, his knowledge of photography and all its processes is second to none. And do you know what, with all that talent, he is a bloody good bloke too!

What do you do when the light is average?

8 Sep 2009 at 9:55am


mangrove leaves


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.

January Workshop

19 Dec 2008 at 2:00am

two The date for the next workshop I will be holding at my Dunsborough Gallery is Saturday January the 10th 2009. It is my usual workshop that I held all last year. I cover my workflow from capture to fine art printing. You get a workshop manual, free wine and desert and 18 years of experience. Will short track you to taking better photographs. Cost is $250 and starts at 7.30pm at my gallery. Goes for 4 to 5 hours and is relaxed and fun, well I think it is!!! Check my blog for comments regarding the courses if you are unsure about the value of attending.

This photo is from the 5D again, handheld with the 400mm f/5.6. Two images stitched. Neal knows these Grass trees, they are hard to miss driving down Bussell Hwy on the way to Margaret River. Still think they could look brilliant with the right lens and the right light. Or maybe a moonlight shot with the 5D Mark II and a star trail!!! hmmm…..

Photography Course

27 Nov 2007 at 11:23am

I have been thinking about running a night course over the summer months outlining my workflow and how I arrive at the photographs I take. The course will run for a few hours and will cover everything from capture to fine art printing. It won’t be about what to point the camera at but all the technical stuff that can improve the look of your images. If you are interested please drop me an email, I want to try and gage whether it is something worth doing.
