March too busy for Photography :(

22 03 2009

Sorry been a bit quite on the photography and internet side this month , been flat out at work and weekends have been busy with engament partys , bucks nights and weddings havent had any spare time to myself this month . The only time I managed to get my camera out was at the wedding to take a few potraite shots of the grooms men getting ready and of us in the H2 hummer .

I did go and edit some photos tonight though as was’nt to hung over from the wedding 🙂 Been saving a lot of my good images for the launch of my website so sorry  . Did find this image of the Perth Skyline I took near the start of the Feb when I was testing out my 5D Mkii . Got to say Perth and Sydney skylines would have to be my favourite sklines to photograph in Australia . Was a 8 image stitch .


 Also to answer a few question from other post the image that is currently on Channel nine news is this image of Perth Sunrise I took a while back now


They have droped a blue gradient through the sky to fit in with the news desk theme , but still a huge amount of exposure and publicity .



They stumbled accross my image on the internet and then track me down from there . Had a meeting with them at the start of the year and got a tour of channel 9 ,  and sorted out an agreement and when I got back from Sydney a few weeks ago say my image up on the TV already .

Will have some more new images soon 🙂 As no more wedding engament party’s etc 🙂

Well done ion the Channel 9 sale !! Too bad they murdered your awesome sky 😀 Still, fantastic exposure, just a shame there’s no Kirk Hille logo onscreen, did you try and sneak that in ? 😀

Perth skyline is brilliant, I am a bit weird though and prefer it without the bridge. I also reckon Brisbane skyline is brilliant for cityscapes.

Hi Kirk,

Can I please use your photo on one of my university assignments? I’m not an art / design major and it would be solely for decorative purposes on a business plan i’m formulating.

Reference will be given of course, but if you would prefer me not to use your image then I won’t, please let me know 🙂

Kind regards,
