The South West Project

19 Sep 2011 at 12:37pm

Well it has started, a couple of weeks back we had our first of several trips to photograph the South West like it hasn’t been seen before. The same team from the Pilbara Project have gathered along with guest shooter Nick Rains. We have a super team of Landscape photographers

Michael Fletcher – Australian Fusion (video) Photographer of the Year 2011
Tony Hewitt – GM. Photog AIPP – Western Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year 2004, 2008

Nick Rains – M. Photog AIPP – Australian Geographic Photographer of the Year 2002, (Guest photographer on this project)
Dr Les Walkling – Artist, Educator, Consultant

Farmland Busselton

The first trip started in Albany and worked its way back to Bridgetown shooting all along the way. Next we are heading inland and following the old country towns to Bremer Bay. For that trip we are taking our own Cessna 172 and Pilot. We hope to shoot a lot from the air as this gives you such a great perspective.

As a group we all have so much fun, the banter between us is constant and having cb radios in the car it only stopped when we were asleep. Here are some pics of the boys. Thanks to Tony  and Nick for some of these images.

Stay tuned for more stories to come from the project as well as announcements on the exhibition dates and a super workshop that will blow your minds!!!

Ahh Thats Better

A bit of industry is good for the soul! I love this pic but it didn’t make it to the Pilbara Project exhibition, or the book I think! Anyway it wasn’t shot on the Phase One P65+ it was shot on the Nikon D3x. A mighty camera and king of the DSLR’s.

Make sure you check out the exhibition at the FORM gallery Cnr Murray and King St Perth or at the Courthouse Gallery in Port Hedland.

The Pilbara Project Teaser By Michael Fletcher

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/18996639]

This is a teaser video for the Pilbara Project. We are finally coming to the end of the journey, the exhibition is only weeks away. This is the first time Tony Hewitt, Les Walkling, Peter Eastway, Michael Fletcher and myself have exhibited together.

What started out as an idea over a meal has become two exhibitions, a blog, a book and an awareness of the Pilbara none of us ever had before.

You can join us on the opening of both exhibitions. All the details will be posted as they come to hand. It is going to be a huge event with all the photographs and the full 24 min cut of Michaels video. Hope  we will see you there.

shooting in the Pilbara

23 Sep 2010 at 5:12am

hi all

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I have been up in Karratha for the past three days. Hanging out with Tony Hewitt, les Walkling, Bill Fox an amazing writer from America and the equally amazing painter Larry Mitchell. Oh not to forget our poor guide Mollie from FORM. She has to put up with 5 artists!

If you have sent me an email I will try to get backup you on my return but the day after I get home from this trip I will be back on the road heading to James Price Point. I’m going to be even more behind. Such is life.

I have been getting some interesting pictures here and learning heaps from the others. My eyes have been opened up all over again.

Remember a group of us will be at James Price Point on the 1st of October to see what is there and photograph it. If you feel like camping with us come along. It will be fun and for a good cause. We won’t be waving banners just getting an idea of the place for ourselves. See you there.

Curtis Taylor is a young guy we met out at Parnngurr when on the last Pilbara Project shoot. Curtis works with Martu Media, a program of Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa. He has produced short films that describe the history and culture of Parnngurr (Cotton Creek), his home community in Martu Country, for the project’s multimedia installation One Road. He is studying film making so him and Michael hit it off straight away. He was kind enough to show us around his land. It is a spectacular place and standing on the hill above town he pointed out to us where his peoples land extended to. Off in the distance were lots of hills and plateaus all begging to be explored. I must get back there soon. There was something about being so remote that felt great. And just to show how small the world is I bumped into a Dunsborough guy who is living out there and doing volunteer work in the community. It blew me away. I love this portrait of Curtis, you can see he is a strong, proud fellow. Will be keen to see his work.

Shot with the Phase One P65+ and the glorious 80mm Schneider, hows the bokeh!!

Les Walkling – “the REAL man”

This is a quick portrait I took of my mate Les Walkling. He is an inspirational figure and his passion is infectious! When you see him taking a photo you would think the world depended on it, it is done with that much care and attention to detail. Heisdarealman!!!

See you in September for another trip into the wild Pilbara Les.

Shot on the Phase whilst on our last trip just out of Newman.

Tony and Pete were no where to be seen and unfortunately missed the good stuff……… again! Not that it was a competition!
