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…

I had a full day to myself today so I decided to walk the town and see what I could find. I just love this sort of shooting. The light was perfect for what I wanted to do.
Tonight is the awards night, I won’t come away a winner but everyone who enters learns something about their work and themselves. Peter Eastway is on cloud nine. He got a higher score than me and thats all he needed to do to put me in my place. Still as he tells me, “it’s just a game!!” The best thing is Tony Hewitt beat him so I’m on cloud nine! Rainsy came away with 3 silvers and would have done better if he hadn’t listened to me. The one of his that got 79 was the one I said he had to enter. Sorry mate. What do I know!

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

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!!!

Well I managed to pick up the award for WA landscape Photographer of the Year tonight, bummed out I wasn’t there to get the prize in person. Tony rang me and had me on loud speaker. So glad I didn’t swear! It was a total shock and I was just about to go to bed, the boring life of a landscape shooter.
Thanks to the WA AIPP board the sponsors and the judges. I am so happy. And to my good mate and inspiration, Tony Hewitt, thanks buddy, you’re the best. You have helped me to get my images up to scratch and I really appreciate the advice and time you have given me over the years. BTW Tony got the highest scoring Landscape print and was runner up in Landscapes too. Go Tone!
Below are the images that I entered

Karri Valley Resort – Masterclass with Tony Hewitt
The venue for this Masterclass is one of Western Australia’s hidden jewels of tranquility –Karri Valley Resort, Pemberton.
Nestled on the edge of trout filled Lake Beedelup and surrounded by majestic karri forests, the natural charm of Karri Valley Resort provides the perfect setting for the theme of this Masterclass No. 4 – “The Hidden Dimension”.
The focus will be on ways to create deeper photographs as these images give us more engaging one-frame pictorial stories. Images created with greater depth pull readers in, invite them not only to look at your photographs, but look into them, to take a visual journey through your image and see and feel the emotion you saw and felt when you pressed the shutter.
Accommodation for participants has been reserved in the best Lakeside Rooms, with private balconies overlooking the lake and forest. These are twin-shared rooms. Those wishing to have a private bedroom may stay in the chalets set in the forest, at no additional cost.
Photographers residing close to Karri Valleyand who do not require accommodation, dinners etc., may register for the Masterclass lectures and photographic shoots only. A reduced fee applies for this option.

I have been looking at the work of Bill Henson in recent days and have gained some inspiration from what he does and why. I recommend you check his work yourself it is beautiful and so different to what we are used to. His landscapes are amazing, lots of black which is totally against what I have been doing in the past. I have been going for detail, show everything. Bill hides stuff away from the viewer which adds to the mystery and what he is trying to say with his work. Don’t discount it, this guy sells work for tens of thousands of dollars. It is true Fine Art Photography!
I took this image yesterday whilst I was waiting for the rain to stop. I had the back tailgate open and I was sheltering from getting wet. As I looked up I thought what the hell. I saw an image my good mate Tony Hewitt took in the US recently that had all these gulls in it. It was typical creative genius from Tony that I have gained inspiration from. Thanks Tony.

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.
