Smiths Point

yallingup, landscape photography, seascape photography, australian photographer,

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.

Fremantle Last Light

I just love the clouds in this shot it reminds me of the photo I took in Broome recently.    Really complex with lots of interesting patterns in them.

The waves were pretty cool as well.  I came so close to not heading out on this particular afternoon and staying home.  Just goes to show if you aren’t out and about you’ll miss out.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks,

Calm

Hi Everyone,

Yes its another shot of North Cottesloe!   I guess it just goes to how diverse and different this place can be if you take the time to get to know it.   I like this shot as it seems really calming and relaxing which is exactly how North Cottesloe makes me feel when I’m there.

I can’t believe the weekend is pretty much over.  Bring on the new week!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

North Cottesloe Waves

Last night I decided to hit Perth metro beaches. I was determined not to end up at North Cottesloe beach as I had shot it so many times before, but as usual I ended up at you guessed it…… North Cottesloe. I do love it down there.

The rocks and their formations are simply awesome and you can stand right out on the edge of them without getting too wet, though I did cop a soaking last night.

For me one of the best things about winter is that the North Cottesloe magic that has been hiding all summer is revealed. Exquisite rocks that were covered by sand are now exposed and facing the full force of the ocean after spending almost six months in hibernation, protected by a blanket of sand.

Winter would have to be a seascape photographers best friend.

Thanks,

Washed Away

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to do something a little different for me.   I wanted to focus more on how a place felt to me than the actual place itself.  This was the result.  To me the dark green of the ocean is relaxing and soothing and that is what I was trying to convey.

Its not everyone’s cup of tea I know, but look at it with an open mind and think of what emotions it invokes if any.

Thanks,

Jamie

Sugarloaf Rocks

Hi Everyone

I hope you’re all having a great 2010 so far!   This is a shot of some rocks that I managed to capture down at Sugar Loaf Rock.   To get to it you had to first summon up the courage to step out of the car and face the onslaught of flies.   Then you had to get your gear out whilst battling the army of vicious Ninja flies that were determined to make there way into either your eyes, mouth, nose or ears.   It was then just a simple matter of heading down the path with a torch because the cloud of flies above you was so thick that it was blocking out the sunlight.

Though the flies were terrible in Dunsborough and Yallingup this year the weather conditions were a landscape photographers dream.  We had really nice cloud with hot and humid conditions that produced some really nice effects.   This summer has certainly been a lot more exciting photography wise that last year.  Let’s hope it stays like this.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jamie Paterson

Quindalup Stormy Skies

Hi Crew,

Well this is officially my last post for the year.  Can’t believe its gone so incredibly fast.  Again I hope you all party safely and I can’t wait to catch up with you all in the New Year.

This shot was taken at Quindalup boat ramp with Mark.  As you can see the skies were really going off this particular afternoon.    I’ve got heaps more shots from Sugarloaf Rock and Wyadup Rock from this evening but of course I’ll post them in the new year.

See you next year everyone,

Jamie Paterson

Dunsborough Summer Storms

Hi Everyone,

I’m back in Perth for New Years Eve.  It wasn’t the plan but things change unfortunately.   Anyhow I had a fantastic time down south even though it was short.   Melissa, Xavier and I were treated to a wonderful afternoon by Mark at True North Ashore.  He was an amazing host and all three of us had a great time there.   Folks, if you want a romantic weekend in beautiful Eagle Bay with your partner or just want to get away with the family, you can’t go past True North Ashore.   It even has a little creek with rocks from the Kimberley running through the middle of the house and the master bedrooms are just amazing.   It made it hard for us to go back to our humble little caravan!   Thanks for a great afternoon Mark.

This shot is from a shoot that Mark and I did on Tuesday.   It was extremely still and humid that day and we decided to head out to Quindalup before heading over to Injidup Beach.   It was the weather that landscape photographers just die for.   The skies were dark and moody yet the sun was sneaking through and highlighting all the colours in the plants.   Just standing back and looking at it all was so cool, its times like these I realise I’m fortunate to be able to take Australian landscapes.

I hope you all have a fantastic and safe New Years eve tonight and that 2010 is a great year for each and everyone of you.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

North Beach Seascape Photo Location

north beach perth cottesloe australian landscapes seascapes jamie paterson photography

Hi Guys,

The seascape location I shot on Friday night is certainly no secret and I’m quite happy to share for those interested.  :-)  This image shows you that the photo was actually taken at North Beach itself.   I just pulled up into the carpark above the beach and spotted the rocks.  From there I just walked down to the beach and in this image you can see where the rocks are.    I’d be really interested in some of you fellow Perth landscape photographers heading down there and taking some shots.  I’d love to see what you guys come up with.

Did anyone see the sunset tonight?  I wish I was down at Cottesloe Beach.

Anyone up for the challenge?   Head down to North Beach and come up with your own interpretation of the rocks and then post them on your blogs!

Now my next location I’ll have to keep secret…………… just joking.

Chat to you all soon,

Jamie Paterson

Some Days Are Diamonds

perth sunset australian landscapes seascapes jamie paterson

Some days are diamonds and other days you just get lucky.   Well yesterday was both.   Its been five weeks since I’ve ventured out to take a serious photo, not sure why probably a little battle fatigued from a pretty tough year.   I just had to get out last night and ‘recharge’ my batteries, I hopped in the car and with no particular destination in mind just started to drive.    Those who know me well enough would know that I instinctly drove to the coast for my recharge.    I hit the coast at Port Beach near Fremantle, and headed past Cottesloe Beach, Scarborough and then past Trigg Beach.   Finally I decided to hop out of the car and below me I saw a really small group of rocks that were just begging to have their photo taken.  Being the ever obliging seascape photographer that I am, I grabbed my camera gear and walked down to the beach and setup my gear.

After being there for an hour and working out my shots the sun finally set and I got to work.   The joys of taking seascape photographs came flooding back into my veins, I felt alive again and I think the joy of coming alive again were reflected in my photos.   I’m really happy with this one.   Where do you guys go for your recharge?   Is it just taking photos itself that recharges you, or do you have a certain location that you gravitate to?

Photo Settings:

Aperture – F22

ISO – 50

Shutter – 1.6sec

I hope you guys enjoy looking at it as much as I did taking it.   All comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
