Leader Of The Pack!

Last weekend I attended the Bulldog fun day at held at the Tuggeranong Dog Club where they had 60+ dogs and owner show up to enjoy the fantastic weather and hang with other like minded people, not to metnion participate in some fun competion and win a few things on the raffles.

Was great to see soo many bulldog in one place and TBH never really spent much time with this breed before so it was intergesting to see how they interacted with each other and their owners.

Look at this little pup. Looking proud as punch and ready to take on the world even at 1 foot tall. lol

If Only I Was a Real Sized Dog..

Where was also best dressed which this little chap won hands down in his custom x-mas sled. Ho Ho Ho

All in all a great day out but didn’t my legs know about it the next day as I must have done about 8,374,227 squats so I could get down low to photograph the dog, but hey… Whoever said photography wasn’t good for your health. 😉

What A Way To Die!!!

Had a chance to catch up with Tim The Yowie Man over the weekend to photograph the screening of his YouTube serires “The Tragedy of Henry Dunkley” latest part in his web series of documentary-style YouTube videos.

I have photographed some of the behind the scenes of his events and YouTuseriesres and seeing the end product of his and his teams latest editioin I was very much impressed with how far they have come. The clearly have learnt a lot from their past effort as this was a as sweet as nectar in what they produced from the first to this one.

23rd March 2019 – Gunning, NSW Australia. Tim the Yowie man and crew at their screening of The Tragedy of Henry Dunkley

Without giving much away, its a real-life tale of murder, lovers and strange execution.

Tim and his production crew had their screening out a place called Pyer Cottage in Gunning NSW which is close to where the real events took place but given the cottage is a historical cottage it was used in the filming of “The Tragedy of Henry Dunkley”.

While I have been out to Gunning a few times as it is a fantastic place to ride your motorcycle and the cafe there is just the best with some fantastic scones and coffee, I didn’t until the weekend know the cottage was there which BTW is now turned into a museum.

Then after watching the screening of “The Tragedy of Henry Dunkley” I had a new outlook on this little country town and had an urge to go to the sewage works….. Oh, you will have to watch “The Tragedy of Henry Dunkley” to see why. lol

Given it the screening was at Gunning there was a great turnout with a bush fire control center filled to standing room only and as I stood at the front of the room watching and photographing their faces I could just tell the were fixed to the screen to see how the story played out.

Eyes locked to the screens

After the great viewing, the night ended with a few speaches a feed put on by the local “The Old Hume Cafe”. Me being me mentioned it was a bit posh but I was assured that this was just normal Gunning hospitality. Not sure if I believed it with things like this put out for us to eat.

Great spread of food put on by “The old Hume Cafe”

There was a few locals there selling some of the books that were the drivers for Tim’s episode which I would have loved to buy however as I was on the motorbike I wasn’t in a position to take extra things home as I was already full taking 2 x Canon 5D iv, two lenses and a speedlite on my back. lol

Tim The Yowie Man giving some more background on the series and other facts in and around the Gunning area.

All in all a great night and great viewing.

Love and Live

The most amazing thing I do as a photographer is to take photos of life experiences, to capture memories, to take a fraction in time of our lives and put it in a still photograph.

Over the years I take photos of people that have been the last photos anyone has taken of them while they are alive.

Please do not let me be that person…… More importantly, don’t make the last word you say to someone be bad or hateful, don’t make the last word of feeling you have for someone be with hate, don’t let the last word you tell someone be one that is bitter and regrets.

Life my friends is sooooooooo short…. Love with an open heart, love without regret and love like there is no tomorrow as there may not be any tomorrow.

Sometimes It’s Nice To Relax!

It’s been a busy first month of the year for me in lots of areas of my life and with things starting to seattle down and get in to a new rythym it’t nice to relax, and take in the things that life has to offer.

Taking the time to have a look around and appreciate all the things, and people that are around you and what all that means.

For me to be able to look out over this sunset almost every day is one of the very special things in my life and a decission to buy and keep this house is a decission that I will also appreciate.

Its my home, its my santurary, its the place where I raised my daughter, a place where I spent many years of my life through dark and sunny days and a place that I will call home for the unforseable future.

The fact that you are reading this means a lot to me. You have taken time out of your life to be part of mine even if it may be through the writing of this. So thank you. <3

Sun Set From My Back Deck

It’s All Smoke And Mirrors!

I love the creative aspect of photography and the post processing aspect of the art.
I know in my classes that I teach I always talk about the ability and skill students need to learn not only in the ability to be able to take a photo but to then take that into post processing and turn what they have taken into something amazing.

Photos are taken in camera but make in post production!

For all the amazing photos people take in this day and age if you do not have some post processing on the image you are selling yourselves short. Yeah yeah yeah I hear the old.. but I want people to see my photo and not some edited version of it… I get that but really you can do that but take it from me you might have the best camera in the world and skills like a fat man eating a pizza in one breath but without post processing your images will just not stand out.

Take this picture for example. It is made up of 4 individual images and about 20 hours of post-processing and something that could never be taken without post processing. aka she would fall on the ground. hahahahaha

The photo was taken in the front of one of the Australian Govenment buildings here in Canberra and I must say it is an amazing building. Built with massive stone blocks and would fit in to a film set of Batman. 😉

Australia Day 2019!

Boy oh boy it’t going to be a hot day today with the forcaste weather to be 40c degrees once again.

I guess the best thing to do is to crack on the swimmer, grab a super cold drink and enjoy the day with family and friend while sitting next to or in some water.

How Aussie is this photo I captured.. Was getting an Australia day photo by the lake with the Australian Parliament house in the background and a jogger passing by wanted to get into to some of the action. hahahahaha

Have a great Australia Day. :Australia Day 2019!

Lest We Forget – 2014

Today is a somber day of remembrance.  It is a day of retrospective thinking and paying respect to the men and women in our defence forces that risk their lives for the good of the country.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
