Lifes Glow

Life is always full of surprises isn’t?  I decided to head out to take a photo on this particular night for no other than reason than to just relax and wind down.  It had been a busy week and I certainly didn’t expect the sunset to be spectacular at all.

How wrong was I?  It built up slowly taking at least 20 minutes to work up to its full intensity.  People who were running along the river stopped to admire how beautiful it was.  People driving past pulled over to the side of the road and hopped out of their cars to take snapshots, it was that beautiful.

The reflections were my favourite part of this shot.  What about yours?  On another note, I’ve been shooting this spot for 18mths and its the first time I’ve managed to get the shot I wanted.  Patience and persistence in photography always pays off.

This along with my other photos is up for sale.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

North Cotteloe Sunset

Last Friday night I was fortunate enough to catch up with fellow photographers True North Mark, Peta- Anne North and Greg Ratajcak at North Cottesloe Beach. As always the conditions were fantastic.

The sun cast a stunning golden glow over everything and stayed for ages as you can see in the photo. It was such a magical evening.

When was the last time you saw a sunset like this?

Thanks,

Jamie

North Cottesloe Beach Sunset

Autumn Awesome::

I headed out on Friday evening to let Mother Nature show me what she’s got.  Little did I know that less than 15M away were two other fantastic landscape photographers,  True North Mark and Tristan Jud were just on the otherside of the reef shooting the same sunset.

Its a small world.  The best colour actually happened just before sunset, it seemed like the sun literally burst into a deep orange just before it ducked below the horizon.  Sensational and a great way to end the day. :-)

Did you all have a great weekend?

Swan River Reflections

australian landscape photography, swan river sunset, seascape photograpy,

Art like life is a reflection on the amount of effort we put into it.  The more effort we put into our art the better we get at it.  Its quite often that simple!

I’d been shooting for six months and was wondering just why I wasn’t getting the sorts of photographs that others were getting.  It was consuming me, why wasn’t I able to consistently capture great sunsets and sunrises?

Fortunately, I had my first light bulb moment soon after.  It came to me via a discussion with a fellow photographer, we’d both headed down to Dunsborough in Western Australia to attend a course by Christian Fletcher.  I  wanted to improve my seascape photography and the other photographer wanted to learn how to stitch larger images together.

Well, here comes the light bulb moment.  It took me 2.5hrs to drive from Perth to Dunsborough whereas it took the other photographer 7hrs.  I just laughed and asked if he walked down.  Well the joke was on me, after the course I drove back up to my house and check out his website.  It had stunning image after stunning image on it.  I was totally blown away!

Finally, I realised that I needed to spend more time actually taking photos.  The more photos I took the higher my chances of being in the right place at the right time increased.  So since that moment I’ve dedicated as much time as possible chasing that illusive magic light and guess what?  My images improved out of sight.

So…. art like life is a reflection on the amount of effort we put into it.

What was your light bulb moment?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

North Cotteloe Sunset

Last Friday night I decided to head down to North Cottesloe Beach to unwind and relax and of course to get some photos!  North Cottesloe was the best I’d seen in ages so I started to snap away.

It was such an beautiful evening, warmish for a winters day and there was almost no wind around.   The swell was really nice and these waves were just coming through every couple of minutes.  Simply sensational.

I noticed that the gold light was shining right through these waves so I threw on my 70-200mm lens and started banging away.  When I got home and saw this photo I was pretty ecstatic!

I hope you guys enjoy it.  How does it make you feel?

Thanks,

Jamie

Leighton Beach Sunset

So far this has been the Perth sunset of the year for me.  I headed out with Paul Pichugin to Leighton Beach and we were just blown away at how intense the sunset was.

The entire sky just lit up with this amazing orange glow and it looked like everything was on fire.   In fact I still can’t get over just how fantastic a sunset it was.

Its days like these when you realise how lucky you are just being alive and being able to see things like this.

I hope you guys it enjoy it.

Thanks,

Jamie
