Emerald Green

surf photography, seascape photography, australian landscape photography, landscape photography, australian photographer

Hi Everyone,

Last Sunday Melissa the boys and I headed down to Sand Tracks in Fremantle to cool down after what was a really hot weekend.  It also sounded like a great opportunity to test out my Aquatech Housing since it had been sitting in the cupboard for almost a year!

The waves were really small so I had literally lie down on the sand just as they were about to crash and angle the camera upwards as much as possible to make this look bigger than it actually was.

I love these sorts of photos and I’ll definitely be buying a wetsuit for this winter and getting shots of larger waves.  Can’t wait!

Thanks,

Jamie

Evening Stroll

You and I stroll down the beach,

Together, forever, you’re always within reach.

The water as it ebb and flows,

Reminds me our love always grows.

Fremantle Last Light

seascape photography, australian landscape photography, australian photographer, coastal photography

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,

Jamie Paterson

Starfish Beach

Hi Everyone,

Well I guess a lot of you will be up at the Avon Descent getting some amazing shots from one of the best Avon Descents in years.  Can’t wait to see them.

I saw a nice little front building up mid afternoon so I decided to head down to the coast and grab some photos at sunset.  I’m glad I did, there wasn’t a lot of colour but it was really moody and lasted for ages.

Though this photo is called starfish beach (because of the two starfish in the bottom of the frame), it felt more like a starfish cemetery, there were literally hundreds of them all washed up on the beach.  I guess the recent storms have thrown them all up on the beach.

Its sad to see but I guess that is the cycle of nature.   If you’d like to see more seascape photography please visit my site.

Thanks,

Window To The World

Tonight I went to a not so secret location with Markie Mark we all know where it is but I’m not going to admit I was there. :-)   It was absolutely amazing and there is just so much to photograph.

I just loved these windows and the graffiti and building were a real contrast to Mother Natures beauty just outside the window.  There really is so much to explore here and it can’t be done in one trip.

Thanks

Passing Front

Hi Everyone,

I hope you’re all having a fantastic Easter.  I decided to head out and about to the beach to see what was going on down there.

Well as could be expected it was windy, and the waves were thumping onto the beach with fury.  I love this sort of weather for photography, it can be so dramatic.

I can’t believe the guy in the water was swimming.  Crazy especially since he was within meters of a rip.   I hung around until he got out of the water………. just in case he got into trouble.

Has anyone done anything exciting this Easter so far?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Fremantle Tug

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Where did you all shoot this weekend?   Now that the exhibition is over I’ve managed to head out and grab a couple of shots again.   I actually haven’t headed out with my camera in about 5 weeks so I’m definitely a man on a mission.  I headed to Trigg Beach on Saturday afternoon but ended up in Fremantle just before sunset.   I saw this tug that was about to bring in a ship bathed in golden sunlight and it just really caught my eye.

There is something about tugboats, they seem like such hardworking and honest boats that receive little glory for their important role.  Anyway so its not a classic landscape shot but i quite like it and I hope you guys do as well.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Port Beach Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far.  This is a shot that I managed to get whilst out shooting with Mark last week.  It was such an intense and magical sunset, in fact probably the best I’ve seen in a long time.

It was one of those sorts of sunsets where I actually stopped shooting for a few minutes so that I could just take time out and enjoy it.   One the way home Mark and I stopped off and tried out another location that promises to provide us with a couple of great photos, unfortunately the light wasn’t right on the night but stayed tuned.  I’m sure either Mark or I will return there soon to have another crack at it shortly.

 

Thanks for stopping by guys,

Jamie Pateson

Blackwall Reach Boats

Blackwall Reach near Fremantle would have to be one of my more favourite spots on the Swan River.   Despite all the boat traffic going by its actually a very peaceful place to be.   Its also a pretty cool spot to go diving as there are stacks of boats sitting on the bottom here, bikes are down there and I’ve even found the remains of an old truck down here.

If you’re into prawn diving this is one of the best spots in the Swan River to get them.  Normally they are between 9M and 14M of water and on a good night you could easily bring in a kilo of prawns.   Perhaps one of the best things about this area is that its full of seahorses just below the surface.  I could almost guarantee that if you went for a snorkel or dive around here you would find at least one seahorse.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  I certainly did.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Cottesloe Beach

Hi Crew,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.   Have I jumped on the black and white bandwagon with this shot?  Certainly not!   I see things in colour and in the past have converted the odd photo to black and white when the composition and light was good but the colour wasn’t.

In this case though I always saw this Cottesloe Beach shot in black and white for some reason, perhaps its because of Brett Morgan’s latest photos.  Either way I’m glad I saw this one in black and white as it really works.  Now should I rock Mark’s boat and do a third post for the day?  I think so.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
