Pre Xmas Shoot?


HI Everyone,

Who is up for a pre Christmas Shoot?   I’d certainly like to catch up with you all before the end of the year comes upon us.   Is a shoot a good idea or should we all just turn up to a spot with a few beers?   I thought we could turn up to somewhere like Kings Park or Fishing Boat Harbour where a number of us could squeeze into with cameras if we so choose.   Anyhow I’m open to ideas.  If you’re interested let me know. :-)

Roll Up Roll Up – 4th October – 3pm @ Fremantle

Hi Everyone,

Neal from Spool Photography and Kirk of Kirk Hille Photography and I would love to catch up with everyone next Saturday the 4th of October in Fremantle at the E Shed Markets, we should all congregate on the verandah halfway along the markets facing the quay.   We thought we could all catch up and have a coffee  and have a meet and greet sessioin before taking a stroll around Fremantle ‘scouting out’ new photo opportunities.   There are just so many in Fremantle. :-)

Anyone interested?

X Man Photos

A small photo of Xavier asleep in his hospital cot.   So far he has been a dream, sleeping all night and very rarely crying.   Is this the calm before the storm?   Fingers crossed that its not.  :-)   Melissa and Xavier should be home on Saturday so I’m really looking forward to that.

Oh What a Feeling!!!

My son arrived yesterday at 5:03pm after a 5hr labour.   He came in at 8 pounds exactly.   More news and pics to follow, but now I believe all the dad’s it is truly and amazing experience.

Fast Escape!!!

So I blame Spool Photography for my latest bad luck.  After he wrote a post about how does eveyone back up their photos I started to see some funny things happening with my brand spanking new laptop.   Like a true IT professional I ignored it for about a week, but the past few days things were getting worse and worse.   Yesterday I did a Family Portrait for some good friends and at the end of the shoot copied all the files across to the laptop and then couldn’t open Photoshop.  I already back up everything on a ‘regular’ 3 monthly basis so I ran off and grabbed the external USB hard drive that I had for backups.   5 mins after the back up completed the hard drive in the laptop died a miserable death. 

Talk about lucky!!!

Denmark Views

This is the view Melissa and I woke up to this morning.  Walked out on to the balcony and had to take a shot.  Simply stunning.

On another note, I’m really intrigued as to why I’ve got those stripes across the sky.

The Illustrious and Intrepid Landscape Photographers – Neal and Kirk

Here is a short video of Neal and Kirk crossing a small creek at the bottom of a waterfall that we encountered this weekend.  I was taking the video and wisely decided to go last. 😉
