Wow. What a crazy year 2012 has been already! I’ve managed to sell a few photos from the galleries that represent me and I’ve just done a trip to Dallas in Texas which totally blew me away, though I could’ve done without all the time in the air.
This photo was actually taken well over a year ago, and I’m not sure why I’ve sat on it so long as I really like it. Can anyone guess who it is in the photo? You know who you are so please don’t let the cat out of the bag. 🙂
Christian was just up the road when we were taking this shot and he wasn’t amused when he saw this shot as he’d never seen this beach like this before. Woo Hoo. We managed to CF. 🙂
Its been ages since I’ve been down south and I was trawling through my down south images today when I came across this photo of Boronup Forest that I took whilst out with Mark Stothard last year. I’ve tried doing a few different techniques to it and I quite like the way it turned out.
Hope you guys do to.
A few months ago I was down south just walking along Smiths Beach when I came across this scene before me. It was just a nice secluded part of the world to be in, so of course I had to try and capture it.
I was trying to time it so that I would capture a wave just before it smashed into the rocks so I’m pretty stoked with this shot.
The unusual clouds are what really drew me to this shot. I hope you guys enjoy it as well.
Last Saturday I was fortunate enough to join Mark, Christian and Michael on a shoot at Smiths Point. It was awesome fun and we had some amazing light present itself during the sunrise. The other three headed up some huge rocky face and I decided to stick with familiar territory to me, the wonderful and amazing ocean.
I’m glad I did as I able to witness the best sunrise I’ve seen in at least six months. If you’d like to see more seascape photography please visit my site.

Who is Holga when she is in town and why is she visiting Injidup? Why am I even writing about her? I bought a Holga camera ages ago and though I had the best of intentions of using it a lot more than I currently do, I just haven’t. I do though really like the Holga / Lomography look, for some reason it has a real appeal to me. Maybe its because they create a heavy vignette, perhaps the crazy colours, the heavy noise, the soft focus or just the sheer unpredictability of the camera.
I have been experimenting quite a bit in Photoshop this weekend, on some of my old glamour shots and on my landscapes and its been heaps of fun. Its good to really stretch ourselves creatively and see what we come up with.
I decided to create a Holga / Lomography look for this photo of Injidup using Photoshop and I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. I know its not for everyone, but I really was just having a tinker around and thought I’d share it with you guys.
When was the last time you sat down and just did some crazy experimeting on your photos?
Yep. Another file that has been sitting on my Mac for about one and a half years, not because I didn’t like it but just because I forgot about it. I’d been setting up at Yallingup main break for a sunset shoot, but couldn’t shake the feeling that I really wasn’t in the right place. Something kept telling me to head on over to Injidup Point and I decided to listen and jump in the car with only a few minutes to spare to get there.
As I was driving into the carpark I was presented with this scene. A double rainbow as a rain shower was passing. I stopped the car, grabbed the camera and popped off this shot before heading down to the beach. I’m pretty happy now that I took the shot as I reckon its a pretty cool shot. The afternoon glow from the setting sun along with the rainbows is just another visual splendor that I’ve managed to experience at Injidup.
Another shot of Injidup Beach! What more can I say about the place other than I love it and its magical. On this particular evening the waves were just gently lapping at the beach instead of being hammered by the large waves that normally come through here like a freight train.
Just on the other side of the rocks were a large group of kids jumping into the water and swimming and splashing around, just having a great time. Its good to see that I’m not the only one who recharges at Injidup.
I can’t wait to get down here during winter to capture some winter storms.
