Singapore

Singapore –

Well I’m back from my recent short trip to Singapore . I have to say Singapore is a lovely , clean city with so much in amazing architecture . We actually stayed in one of the unique buildings during our 4 night stop , which was the Marina Bay Sands . This building is billed as the world’s most expensive standalone casino property , valued at $8 billion, including cost of the prime land . The actual hotel building is three separate towers going up to 55 stories , with one of its main attractions on the top of the building the Sky Park which is oddly enough looks like a ship on the top of the three towers . The Skypark feature some of the most breath taking views of the Singapore skyline and also features several restaurants , clubs , bars , spas , viewing platforms and its main attraction the infinity pool over looking the city. The infinity pool is actually the largest elevated swimming pool in the world and is great way to cool down on the humid Singapore days .

Some of the other features of the property are  2,561 hotel rooms , a 1,300,000-square-foot convention-exhibition centre, the 800,000-square-foot shops” The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall “, a museum which is another unique building offering lots of photographic opportunities , two large theatres , seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, an ice skating rink, and the world’s largest atrium casino plus they put on the Southeast Asia largest lights and laser show every night . Over the stay at the Marina Bay sands was an unique and pleasant stay , besides the one little hiccup with electronic cards and the elevators . It also offers plenty of photographic opportunities of the Singapore city and buildings been a close walk around  .

Some of the other attractions we indulged in were a dinner on the Singapore High Flyer which is a   giant Ferris wheel which reaches 42 stories high, with a total height of 165 m (541 ft), making it the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world  . It has some amazing views from the top of the ride during sunset and night . Sentosa Island which feature amusement parks like Universal Studios and various restaurants , shops , golf courses , shows , and other attractions . We also went sight seeing through Singapore and Visited China Town and Little India . The food over in Singapore is some of the best in the world and we enjoyed several tasty dinners . One of the highlight restaurants was Sabai fine thai on the bay . Went shopping in Orchard Road which has something like 40 odd huge shopping centres , we spent half a day there and only went through 4 of them and got lost several times .

Overall we both had an enjoyable time in Singapore and found the city to be tourist friendly , easier to navigate with the train system and has many unique photographic opportunities with the interesting buildings and skyline . Would have like to spend longer and seen a few more sights and travelled out of the city a bit more however .

With photography news I managed to get a lot of shots in Singapore will have several more coming soon . I been busy with my photography as well been back website is just about ready to launch , dont forget to follow me on face book for a chance to win a 45″ limited edition Fuji Flex print at http://www.facebook.com/Kirkhillephotography .

Matilda Bay Boat House

19 01 2012

Sorry been a bit quite over the break been busy with work and reorganising holiday and dealing with poor service from major business in Australia .

I wont go into the details but have been really disappointed with the way some business here in Australia operate and deliver customer service or don’t care as they have the monopoly in the industry .

Other then that 2012 is looking like a busy year for photography , I have got a few trips planned already one to Singapore in February , also possibly Hong Kong , Another trip to Tasmania , Sydney , Melbourne , various trips around WA and hopefully another overseas trip to some where .

I know my website has been taking a while to get up due to delays from my work etc , but its in the final stages and in the process of proofing before launch . Hopefully will be ready to launch when I get back from Singapore next month.

I have also been branching out my photography and got a few wedding and family portrait shoots on the books this year , Will have more details on them soon with one shoot this weekend .

My landscape photography will have a big push this year hopefully with building up my portfolio and Website launch , TV advertisements and also new range of products which will be available in various shops around Perth from Greeting and postcards , book marks and calendars . They are currently in the final stages of design thanks to my cousin who works in Graphic design and shipment of them from overseas should hopefully arrive mid year .

As for the photo this is one of the Matilda Bay Boat House I took at the end of last year .
best viewed in full Can be view larger at my blog : www.kirkhillephotography.com
Will have some wallpapers of this shot in various sizes up on my blog later . kirkhille.wordpress.com/wallpapers/

Perth City Reflections

20 12 2011

 

Perth City Reflections

The other week I was watching the sky and looked like would be a nice sunset . I didn’t have enough time to drive any were besides the South Perth foreshore , so headed down there and waited for the sunset . Had some nice light and took a few shots this is a 7 image stitch of the sunset . The new BHP building certainly made and impact on the look of the Perth , I would have to say architectural ways it is not the most exciting looking building when compared to what sort of buildings are going up in Dubai and China .

Hope every one has a great Christmas and new Years . More images and finished website will be coming shortly in 2012

Taken with the Canon 5DMKII and 24-70mm F/2.8L USM Lens and Lee soft Grad Filters . 7 Image Stitch

Perth Skyline 2011

28 11 2011

 

 

The Perth Skyline has seen some major changes this last couple of years . The swarm of cranes that had littered our skyline for the last year have all but just disappeared . The most major change has been the new BHP skyscraper which towers over the skyline . Last weekend I had a busy time of photographing the new skyline for a client , the condition were not great but happy with some of the results . Here are a few images I took this weekend .

* The top image is a 7 image stitch from Kings park at sunset

* The below image is a single long exposure at twighlight

* The bottom image is from South Perth Decoy at sunset
