Hopes and Dreams

Hi Everyone,

Quite sometime ago I went out on a shoot with True North Mark and Matthew Saul and we headed out to Toodyay.    It was a pretty cool afternoon and we spent a few hours driving down back roads.

We happened across this house and to be honest I found it a really depressing place and never really did anything with the photo.  However, the past few days I’ve been drawn back to this photo and I thought, why not try and express how this place made me feel?

Well this is my attempt at doing that and I think its captured my feeling really well.   I hope you guys feel it as well.

      Thanks very much mate. Now that is a great comment from yourself so I’m pretty stoked. I do try and push out the photos a little more frequently nowdays. 🙂

    Not normally a fan of the ‘textured’ look but you’ve made it work with this image Jamie. Well done

      Hi Andrew. Thanks for that mate. I’m not the greatest fan of the textured look either but this photo just screamed out for it.

      Not at all Chloe. Life is great. Making quite a few photography sales, being with Melissa and the boys is amazing. Life is really great. Thanks for asking. 🙂

    This shot looks great Jamie, I too am a little choosy about textures I think they have there place and sometimes they don’t work with the shot but this looks awesome. Well done.

      Hi Andrea. Thanks for that, yep the textures definitely enhanced the mood of this shot.
