Aussie Way Of Life

Hi Everyone,

The other day I was walking down the beach and saw how busy it was and I decided to fire off a few shots, as this looked like a typical Aussie day to me.  Hot summer days with lots of people playing in the water just smacks of Australia to me.

If I didn’t have my gear with me I certainly would’ve jumped in the water myself as well.

      Hey Mark,

      How are you mate? Don’t worry next weekend I’ll be in the water with my underwater housing capturing all the people as they jump into the water from the jetty.

      Hi Chloe. Its a great point that you’ve raised and I must that I struggle with taking photos like this every time as I feel like I’m doing something wrong. At the end of the day I just do it, because I’m not doing something wrong and once I start shooting I don’t stress out. I’ve never had any dramas with anyone because I’m really open with what I’m doing. If people ask me if I’m getting good shots I’ll show them what sort of shots that I’m getting. I think being open about what I’m doing puts most people at ease.
