Photo Shoot out to New Norcia!

Blue Sky Windmill

Canola Tree

NN Old house

If anyone is interested, Peta North from Camera Solutions and myself have tentatively organised a day trip to New Norcia on a bus on the 27th of October.

New Norcia has some very cool old buildings to shoot and there are numerous photo opportunities available on the way up there and surrounding New Norcia.

Peta has put a hold on a 30 seater bus for the day and the costs to participate will be $50 a head. This will give participants, morning tea, a lunch platter and drinks as well as the bus trip up there.

The idea is to get together with other like minded photographers to enjoy a fun day out. Peta and I will both be available for composition tips and camera tips throughout the day.

For Nikon shooters, Peta will also be bring along a range of lenses that Nikon shooters can try throughout the day.

As mentioned above, there are only 25 positions available and what we would like in the first instance, is for interested photogs to come back to me and register here on a first in best dressed basis.

Once we have the 25 positions filled we will call for payment via Peta’s Camera Solutions so that we can lock in arrangements.

It should be a nice Spring opportunity to get out and mix with others in the photog community, so come along and register and I look fwd to catching up with everyone on the day.

I will post details of the departure location, time and return location and time etc, once we have locked arrangements in.

Next Photog get together

Following on from the success of last Fridays Photog get together I have now set the date for the next one and it is going to be both a little special and very different!

It is also going to be limited to the first 15 respondents to this post!

The location will be Carnac Island, just North of Garden Island.

The way we will get there is on my 43′ pleasure boat. I also have an ex True North tender we will be towing out there to gain access to the beach.

The fee will be $30 per head for fuel and a few nibbles on the way home.

The date will be 9th of September.

The meeting place will be Fremantle sailing club at 1500 hrs.

The plan will be to meet at 1500, go straight to the boat and out to Garden Island from there and we should be at Garden Island by 1600 at the latest. Then onto the beach for a Sunset shoot and then back to the boat for a few drinks and nibbles and a quite cruise back to the Sailing Club after that.

Let the games begin…first in best dressed! 🙂
