Boranup Forest

On Tuesday 21 Dec 2010 I was lucky enough to be invited along to record a charity event along with Christian and Mike Fletcher, Merv French, Peter Hodgson, Jamie Nichalo, James X and True North Mark.  It was an amazing and epic 24hrs and I’ve been introduced to a lot of new areas down south to shoot!

On the Monday night we shot the Leeuwin Lighthouse until late and fell asleep around 12am.   We were all up at 3:30am to record the start of the charity run which started at 4am.   We then followed the two runners all the way up the coast snapping shots of them as they were running along it.   I can’t believe they ended up running for 21 hours straight.  What an amazing feat.

Along the way we stopped off at Boranup Forest for a few shots and this is one of the shots that I managed to grab and I’m really happy with it.  Its also one of the few spots that I was able to hobble to during the day thanks to a torn calf muscle.

Thanks for inviting me along guys, it was great to catch up with all of you again.

Thanks for your comments,

Jamie Paterson

    “Merv Hughes” ….Jamie , you’ve spent far to long in a sardine can under water. After your stories on Tue night I firmly believe that. 🙂

    It was good fun mate , hope the legs coming good.

    yep nice composition mate and thanks for the funny stories, you need to tell them on your blog. Especially that one about an old Tasmania trip!

      Hi CF,

      Thanks for that mate, I appreciate it. Those stories are going back in the vault where they belong and staying there. 😉

    Yes those stories need to be stored away in Fort Knox Jamie.

    Hey, have a great Chrissy and New Year mate.

    We’re off south tomorrow for 10 days or so, catch you next year.

    great composition Jamie. Guess the leg woulda helped you out in that aspect- if you were fit you would have charged on by at full pace 😛
    nice work man 🙂

      Hi Stephen,

      I have to admit that if my leg was ok, I would’ve done exactly what you said and rushed down to the edge of the cliff, when really I think this is actually a pretty good composition.

      Have a great festive season mate.
