Rock Star Landscape Photographer’s Boat (Brightened)

landscapephotographersboat1

Every Rock Star Landscape Photographer needs their boat.   Last time I looked in Better Photography magazine Peter Eastway and his friend run photography tours in a boat.  I was thinking that perhaps with all the money I’ve made from my Landscape Photography I could purchase this boat and do my own tours.    Any takers? :-)    Seriously though I love this shot, I was going to call it ‘When I grow up’.    Its part of me learning to grow and extending my photography boundaries and ‘eye’.   Hopefully you will all see the sense of humour in this shot as I did.

Has anyone else got any quirky little shots like this?

Kings Park Splendour

perthpano1

Hi Everyone,

This is a photo I got a few weeks ago when I was on my way to work and I was pretty stoked with the results.   Its funny because even though there wasn’t any colour the other photographers left but as you can see it was still a really moody start to the day which I thought was still great to watch unfold.   I have to admit I was really exhausted after this shoot because so many personal trainers were yelling and screaming at their classes and everyone was sweating so hard.   I felt like I lost weight just by being there.   I can think of better things to do in the morning than run around having some bloke scream at me.

This photo also has my new logo especially designed for me by Beau Mitchell.  Thanks Beau!!!

A Touch of Australiana – (Flemming’s Fantasy)

grasstreesorange-copy

Hi Everyone,

I just love this shot, its so uniquely Australian, the red dirt, the grasstress everywhere and the vast distance could only mean that this photo was taken in Australia.    I felt a bit like Peter Lik in his helicopter when I was taking this shot, I was driving along at 110kmh and I just slammed on the brakes, hopped out of the car, ran across the road and started to shoot away!    I’m sure he would’ve been proud of me.   Has anyone been out and about and caught some of those amazing sunsets lately?

Thanks for checking out the blog,

More Sand Dunes?….. Ok

sanddune1

This is another shot from my day at Lancelin.   You just couldn’t go up there and take a bad shot, I’m sure its almost impossible.  Going to Lancelin was such a welcome change from our unfortunately lack lustre photographic opportunities in Perth this summer.   The only reason why I left was because I was getting tired otherwise I could’ve shot there all night.   Guys and ladies, you just have to get up there and have a go.   Lancelin definitely rocks!!!!

On another note don’t forget that Christian Fletcher’s exhibition is coming up soon.  Make sure you turn up to support an extremely talented West Australian Landscape Photographer.

Thank you for stopping by.

Trip to the Moon…….. or was it Lancelin?

sandunes1

Yesterday I spent an awesome day up at Lancelin with both Kirk and Neal.   We hit Lancelin at around 5pm and we just knew that we were going to have an awesome photography session.   After stopping off at the servo for some fuel and food supplies we took a quick look at the beach and then headed off into the sand dunes.   It didn’t take us too long to work out that if we were going to get out of the car we had to point it into the wind first, otherwise the car would just fill up with sand.   It took me two hours to get all the sand out today!!! :-)

Our biggest issue was that we had to watch out for other vehicles particularly motorbikes, and then secondly there were just so many dunes to photograph we didn’t know where to start, rest assured we tried to photograph every single one of them.   We didn’t leave until 10pm and we got to Neal’s at 11pm where he unselfishly gave me his only beer in the house, after being in the sand dunes all day that beer tasted so good.  

I hope you enjoy this photo, I’ve got a stack more sand dune shots to come and I’m sure both Neal and Kirk do as well.

Thanks for visiting the blog.

Wrong Place – Right Time

 

attadalejpg

I had arranged to meet Neal from Spool Photography at Burke Drive in Bicton for an afternoon shoot on Friday afternoon, however it was not to be due our timings.   Whilst standing at Burke Drive I couldn’t help but feel that it was going to be a decent sunset but that I was in the wrong place.   Does anyone else get a ‘feeling’ about these things?    I decided I would head over to Attadale instead and I had given up shooting the sunset as I didn’t think I would arrive there on time to capture it.  I must admit I was extremely surprised and pleased when I turned up to see this beautiful sunset appear in front of me.    It gets so frustrating to go out weeks on end only to come home with nothing, so this made a fantastic change.  

Did anyone else manage to capture this sunset on Friday evening?

On another note, Tony Middleton has written an extremely poignant post about what is happening with the bush fires in Victoria.   My heart is certainly with the people in Victoria.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Dream Walking

dreamwalking3

Hello Everyone,

As we all know there have been no clouds so I’ve been experimenting and I came up with this which I quite like.   This was taken down at Scarborough beach last Sunday when I went down to take some photos of my friend surfing (I love photographing surf).     I took this photo whilst there was a break in the surf and I didn’t really think much about it until tonight when I just started to tinker with a few photos.   It just felt to me like I was walking down a beach in a dream like state hence the title.    I’m off down to the beach tonight to try and get some more photos of the shoreline now that I know it can look quite artistic / abstract.  

Info:

Lens: 50mm F1.2

Shutter: 1/500

Iso 100

Well off to the beach to try and capture some different colours!!!

Thanks for stopping by. :-)

Meelup on the Flipside

pointpiquet

This is something I captured on a trip down south to Dunsborough, the light had been terrible for days and I just got the urge one morning to head out to this spot that I’d been checking out for months and it was the only day that any clouds were present at all so I got really lucky.    30mins after this photo the wind picked up and started to blow the clouds away.    Straight after this shoot I went into Yallingup to check out the surf and was pleasantly surprised, firstly because the waves were massive and secondly because I got to see a school of dolphins surfing at the Yallingup main break.   What a wicked way to start the day.   Oh, and why ‘Meelup on the Flipside’?   Because Meelup is on the other side of the point.

I just love this spot and I’ll be back to take some photos with different points of view. 

Photo info:

Focal length: 50mm EF F1.2

Aperature: F16

Shutter: 15sec

iso: 100

Did anyone get any shots this weekend at all?   Fireworks don’t count!!! 😉

Thanks for viewing my post,

Where is the light?

pointpiquetpano

Hi Everyone,

This was taken whilst down at Point Piquet in Dunsborough recently, it was one of the first night’s that I was there and over almost two weeks it was almost the only night that I saw any clouds!   The only other time I saw a good sunset was when I gave up going out in the evenings and decided to relax and have a beer.   Well as I sat around with friends having a beer you can guess what happened, yep one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in months popped up.    What can you do but be patient?   

So what can a landscape photographer do in times like these?   Is everyone else kicking back enjoying the summer months and not worrying about the lack of light?   I know myself I’m going out there despite the light, testing out new ideas and trying to get different POV’s on popular subjects so that when the light does come back I’ll be able to head out and start shooting away knowing the sort of shot that I’m trying to achieve.  

Hope you are all getting better light than me,

Jamie Paterson

Starstruck……. Again!!!

grasstrees

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to 2009, I hope its a great photography year for everyone.   I’m really amped up to take lots of photos this year and to produce some great quality work.   This photo was taken down south over the past few weeks, the light down there was terrible so I decided to do some night work instead.   I drove out to these grasstrees at 11pm and I must admit everytime a grass leaf would move or a tree would rustle I felt like jumping straight back into the car.     After about an hour I heard some weird noises coming from the bush so I decided to hop in the car and call it a night.

I was really pleased with this shot and night photography has really grabbed my attention for the time being.    Has anyone else been considering night photography during summer whilst there are no clouds?

Enjoy!
