Lee and I are currently in Tasmania as the guest of a wonderful young fella by the name of Chris Podesta and staying at the Lake Pedder Lodge.
Chris and a few of his mates are about to take over the running of the lodge from September 1st and I can just about guarantee all my Photog mates out there that this area is about to become the new Iceland!
I have only been here for a day now and have seen a sweet array of epic landscapes, a small sample of which are posted above in this post.
Chris will be offering comfortable and affordable accommodation here at the lodge from September 1 and will be offering guided photography tours to locations we have found together during my visit.
Down the track a bit I will also be coming back and looking at coaching here from time to time I think as well.
Last night I had the opportunity to take my new Astronomy camera for a run, the D810a supplied to me by Saul Frank from Camera Electronics.
What a weapon that bit of kit is!
I will do a full review of that body as time permits, but for now, I think it is fair to say that the camera rocks and does everything the reviews said it would.
Check out the detail in those stars!
The star shots were shot at 6400 ISO, F2.8 and 20 second exposures….boom! 🙂
I have captured soooo much epic material here in just 24 hours, so plenty more to come!
I drive past High street in Fremantle every morning, but this morning the timing and the look came together for something a little different from usual.
At this time of year the sun rises right down the Eastern end of High street which made for this capture to come together!
Check out the super fast Flash Workers building a carbon fibre P bracket for our 46m Shadow vessel!
The Northern view of Canal Rocks on the weekend just after the sun snuck over the horizon.
You can see the wave energy flowing between the rock islands…the power of mother nature at its best!
Lee and I went down for the Fletcher brothers 50th this weekend for a very wet, but very nice celebration at Christian and Jenny’s place.
Awesome food and some great chats with many of the guests.
Man, it was cold down there this weekend…dress for success as they say!
The boys scrubbed up alright in their suits eh!
After the party and early this morning, I set to see what I could find and after a fair bit of deliberation, found myself at Canal Rocks. The 5m swell was rocking and I captured this 5 image stitch and stack with my 70mm.
Here’s a Sepia take on another reflection series.
This morning I headed out with Sam Sorgiovanni to approve the alumilux and acrylic prints at Fitzgeralds which will now be airfreighted off to be installed into a newly finished 40m Super Yacht in Turkey.
Sam Sorgiovanni is a world renowned Super Yacht Stylist and is also the Stylist for the 84m Yacht we have underway.
11 of my prints were selected in all and feature, Rottnest, the Kimberley and Karijini for an Australian Owner. 3 are shown here.
Thanks to Paul and team at Fitzgeralds for taking the care for these prints as they all came out exactly as I was hoping for.
I took my new Prophoto kit for a run this evening with my old school buddy Glenn Baker.
There is about 45 images in this photo all shot with the beauty dish and one of the Prophoto heads.
The shoot worked like a treat and very happy with the user friendly kit and functionality of the kit as well.
The gear was provided by Saul from Camera Electronics and he also arranged for a couple of training sessions.
