Hi all, sorry for no posts but I have been in and around Port Hedland shooting with Tony Hewitt, Les Walkling, Peter Eastway and my bro.
We are having a brilliant time and getting some pretty nice light. I must say it is pretty interesting shooting with these blokes and seeing how they work. We have one Hasselblad H3d being used by Les, a Phase one and Alpa combo being used by Pete, Tony and I are shooting Nikon D3x’s (thanks Julie from Nikon for the gear) and of course some Canon gear being used to film everything.
We have been to Karratha and the Dampier Archipelago, had Heli flights, Light plane flights, boat trips and tours to the big BHP plant in PH. Some great material and to see Les get all frothed up is just brilliant. The guy is a legend and I was hoping he enjoyed what we have been shooting.
One thing I find shooting with such notable photographers as we have here is I always am wondering what they are shooting and should I be checking it out too. It can be a little intimidating. We have also had some of the previous photography students joining us which has been great fun. Simon, Nicole, Faye and Judith, remember those names they are the next big thing! Well in Port Hedland anyway, Pete is still the next big thing, he is just taking his time getting there.
Off to Marble Bar in half an hour. We are expecting thunderstorms and about 42 degrees. We are pretty excited. There is so much to photograph out here you just need the good light and a fresh pair of eyes.
Here is a couple of pics of the boys in action.
