I have been back from the True North Kimberley PODAS for a few weeks and only now getting some time to go through the images I captured on the trip. This first one is a little different but I like it. This was our cruise up the Hunter river in search of waterfalls. Not bad when your tender boat is a 50m luxury floating hotel. We had breakfast on the bow of the boat whilst the crew served us up awesome coffees. All the whilst I was pinching myself, how’d I get so lucky?
More images from the trip to come.

We have been so busy shooting and photos hoping there has hardly been time to blog, sorry about that! To say we are on an awesome out of this world workshop is an understatement. It has blown my mind. Kevin Raber and all the crew from Phase One have organised probably the best workshop the world has to offer, big call I know but man the service is 5 star, hotels, food, drinks, not to mention the instructors!
Thanks also to my mate Bruce Pottinger, probably the most fun guy in the game.
This photo was taken on a mountain overlooking Queenstown, man I love that town, I might have to move there. More pics and more stories to come, just need some sleep and much more time!
Go to the PODAS BLOG to see more.

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.
