Honeycombs Beach, South Western Australia
It’s easy to take where you live for granted.
Having visitors over Christmas reminds me of how lucky we are in the South West. It really is spectacular.
We have amazing beaches, cafes and restaurants, as well as wineries, forests, shopping and a fantastic community.

I will be on the East Coast for 3 months shooting for my new book on Australia. I am thinking about running my night course over there if I can get enough interest. I will be in all states and the NT hopefully so if you could let me know if you would come that would help my decision to do them. It will be the same as what I hold in WA, i.e. cost $250 and includes free wine, Desert and a workbook. Not to mention lots of fun and learning.
This image was from a shoot I had last week with Mark. I worked this image for 1.5 hours then resized it for the web. Then I went and saved it that size and closed it down realizing I didn’t do a SAVE AS. Fudge’n Hell. Always hit save as, always hit save as, always hit save as………….
Also just clicked over 150,000 hits in 15 months. Man have I typed my little hands off!!!

I was saying to my brother, gee I hope the guys in Perth are getting this light. Then I thought, hmmm, what are they going to stick in front of such an awesome sky??? I am so spoilt here I take it for granted. This afternoon was one of the best in a long time. No wind and a big swell. There were some surfers getting into some serious pits just to the right of this shot. Really awesome to watch. Shame this won’t see the light of day for a while. Am going to release new stuff every 3 months with an exhibition at my Dunsborough gallery. Don’t forget the 21st, for the opening of the exhibition in Mandurah, also get your orders in now for the iTNFP tee shirts. Go on, you know you want too.

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/2904752] This is another one from Michael all shot with the 5D mark II this time. Love the shallow depth of field and the lighthouse shots are superb. Check it out. It has been hosted on Vimeo HD which is a big deal. Will be getting thousands of hits on it per day hopefully. Makes my piddly 956 hits a bit average!!

Had to throw the TNFP filter at this one. Got sick of seeing light cheerie pics. This was at 800 iso which seems pretty sweet, 30 sec at f/7.1. Sorry Merv I’ve ventured back to the dark side!!!

This is a line from one of my favourite Metallica songs. Obviously they didn’t have a 5D mark II. This show that it doesn’t get dark after the sun goes down, you just need to be able to see in the dark. This camera does. The stats, iso 800, f5, 13 seconds. Little to no noise in the RAW image. Depth of field suffered a little with that aperture but the overall effect is good. Helped along by the moonlight. The white spots are stars. Live view was perfect for focusing on the surf cat. I love this camera!!!
