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.

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.

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

WHAT TO EXPECT

I just got back last night at Midnight from an awesome trip to Karratha shooting Altered Landscapes with some of the best Art Photographers in Australia.
Karratha is the place to go if you want to do this style of photography. I can’t show you the best stuff as it is been kept aside for an exhibition in February. This is an aerial shot from a Cessna we hired for a couple of hours. I love the simplicity of this image.
I am now repacking my bags and head off tomorrow for a couple of weeks up in the Kimbereley including a stay at James Price Point to see what it is all about. If you are meeting up with us or are wanting to, we are meeting at JPP at around lunchtime on the 1st of October. We will be camping out there for a few days at least. Come along if you can make it. Should be great fun and a good opportunity to shoot together.
I have just announced a second Bunker Bay workshop on the 15th and 16th of January 2011 with Nick Rains. The first workshop filled in 4 hours and this one is already half full. If you want to book it go to Nicks Website and register.
Lastly my email account has maxed out at over 350 when I got back last night from Karratha. It is going to be impossible to reply to everyone so if I miss you out please resend your inquiry in a couple of weeks time when I will be home. Sorry for those that have been waiting for a reply. It is just out of control at the moment.

So the big news for the 4th and 5th of December this year is Tasmania!!
Nick Rains and I following on from the success of our recent Bunker Bay workshop are doing it again. This time on the Apple Isle. Two days of shooting and tuition for $995. Includes morning/afternoon tea and lunch both days. Doesn’t include accommodation or any travel costs.
It is going to be an amazing experience. Combine the workshop with an extra week or too of your own touring and shooting in one of Australia’s prettiest landscapes. I am so excited to be going.
We are taking expressions of interest now and a full itinerary will be available soon. The Bunker Bay workshop filled fast so don’t miss out on this opportunity.
The accommodation at Freycinet is very well priced and consists of cabin style units similar to the Bunker Bay Resort. We will all stay there and be able to kick up our heels at the end of the long days and enjoy a drink together.
You can see the resort here Freycinet Lodge
The location is Freycinet Lodge, Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay. Below are some of the photos of the area taken by Nick. As you can see it is a photographers paradise.
