St Kilda Pier

20 08 2009

Went to go out for a shoot this morning but this rain wont just stop lol .

Woke up had a look out side and didn’t look to bad outside so got dress packed up my gear and head out to check a local spot off my list . While driving I though we could be in for a nice sunrise and there was still lots of gaps in the clouds and not to much heavy clouds . got to my location and started setting up took a couple of test shots while waiting for sunrise and then the next thing you know the sky is gone completely dark grey its starts raining came out of nowhere and wasn’t going to let up . So packed up and head home with no shots this  is morning . Hoepfully will get a break in the weather soon .

Finished off editing a couple of shoots from Melbourne this morning though .

Went down to the old Pier in St Kilda was hoping for a colorfull sunset that eveing but got a grey cold windy one instead lol .

Did two versions of this image a color shot and a hi key black and white .  Cant really decide which I prefer .

19 08 2009

16 08 2009


Just got back from Melbourne this week , went there for a short trip to visit some friends , some shopping , watch the egales play and the food . I also toke my camera along as well as was hoping to get some photography in while the wife was shopping . Unfortunately the weather and light was wasn’t great while we were over there but still went out most mornings and afternoons to see what I could get . Didn’t come away with many photos so the photography part was a bit of a let down however the food we had while we over there made up for it . I think while we were over there we ate out every night and most breakfast the food and customer service was great over there compared to Perth .

We even went to one of Geroge Calombaris (Judge from Master Chef Australia ) restaurants the Hellenic Republic http://www.hellenicrepublic.com.au/ for breakfast and would have to say it would have been one of the best breakfasts I had had in a long time .

Also went to a couple of restaurants in China town for dinner a few times one of them was the Longgrain Restaurant http://www.longrain.com/melb_INTRO.htm which is a modern Thia restaurant . The food there was amazing with lots of fresh herbs and spices used , the cocktails were also great .

One one of the days I took the tram down to St Kilda to try and get some shots of the old St Kilda Peir at sunset , there was a lot of grey over cast clouds hanging around that day and the weather was bloody freezing with wind . But I rugged up and though I would stick it out till for the sunset hoping there might be a break in the clouds to get some color in the sky unfortunately it just went from light to grey to dark , disappointed I started  head back into St Kilda to get something to eat and choose the elbowroom http://www.elbowroomstkilda.com/ must say the service there was exceptional ordered there house special of beef fajitas and would defiantly be eating there again next time I’m over there .  Perth restaurants could really learn a lot from Melbourne the food and service was just blew Perth standards away . Now will just have to work off all that food now I’m back in WA , hopefully heading down to Pemberton shortly so will defiantly work the food off will all the hiking down there .

The top image I took is of the Melbourne skyline just before sunrise on the first day I was there . Probably the best light I had all trip and it didn’t rain that day either . Was an 8 image stitch taken from near the Crown Casino .

I also noticed at night time they have these huge gas flames that come out along the river bank of Melbourne was amazed at they really did these fireball shows every night on the hour as must be a huge waste of gas . As we were staying right next to the Crown Casino decide to go down and get a few shots of these monstor fireballs going off . The below image was a 8 image stitch again taken around 10 pm .



26 06 2009

I recently got back from a long weekend trip up to Geraldton in WA to see family last weekend . While I was up there took the opportunity to take some photos up there . From what I heard the weather in Perth was shocking that weekend for photography , 500km away from Perth it was fairly nice and made for some great light for photos .

Stayed with my Grand parents at there place on the new Geraldton Marina , It had been a while since I was last up there and the whole front of Geraldton is in the process of some much need redevelopment .

Got a few shots while I was up their the shot below is of Geraldtons new Marinia and Museam .


While I was down there I also took the opportunity to take some photographs of the HMAS Sydney War Memorial . For those of you that don’t know about it HMAS Sydney was lost with all hands battle ,  off the Geraldton coast in November 1945 .


The centre of the memorial is a dome, 12 metres across, raised on pillars 3 metres tall. It is seafaring tradition that the souls of lost sailors are embodied in seagulls. The dome consists of 645 stylized stainless steel seagulls, representing the 645 souls lost .


A wall of remembrance names of those lost loosely envelops the dome. Close by is a soaring stele of the bow of HMAS Sydney.

Most evocative of all is the bronze woman in 1940s dress,  gazing to the distant horizon .

Cape Le Grand National Park

10 06 2009


Cape Le Grand National Park in the South West of Western Australia would have to be a photographers dream . It has some amazing beachs and coves scatered around the place and also some really interesting rock formations including French mans Peak . Unfortantly while I was down there the light and clouds werent playing nice and didnt get a chance to photograph French Man Peack as I was intending to . This was the only piont of view shot i got of French Man Peack from the top of one of the Coves in the National Park at Sunrise , I guess there all ways next time 🙂

Was a 12 image stitch with the 5 D mark II the detail and size were amazing .

Albanys Natural Bridge

8 06 2009


Been feeling better from the flu so found some time to stitch another photo together from my trip down the South West of Western Australia . Most people who live in WA will know this spot . Its the Natural Bridge in Albany , a huge granite rock face which the ocean has carved out a bridge over many years . Pretty dangerous place to photography after sunset with the massive waves crashing against the rocks . Defiantly would like to revisit Albany this year have found some other locations around Albany I would like to photograph .

Was another 8 image stitch taken on the 5D MKII . Hopefully have a few more shots posted this week .
