Miles and Miles

seascapes, australian seascape photography, australian landscape photography

Miles and miles of ocean.  I love it.   This is the most enjoyable form of photography for me.   Flemming has his wide open spaces and me?  I’m addicted to the Ocean, distant, desolate beaches with just me and the ocean.   Nothing more to say. :-)

Thanks,

Wicked Reef Streaks

australian seascape photography, australian landscape photography, sunsets,

Hi Everyone,

I must have lost around 10kgs taking this shot.   In fact I almost felt like Peter Lik!   I had to run out to this spot, slam my tripod down, get a quick focus in and then fire the shot all before the next wave came thumping through.   It was heaps of fun though even if I did cut it a bit fine a few times.    This sort of photography certainly makes you feel alive, though there isn’t much room for error.   I hope the rest of you got awesome shots this weekend.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Simplicity

This is an image I managed to capture a few weeks ago and I’ve been sitting for it for the past couple of weeks trying to work out why it really draws me in.   I finally worked it out.  It draws me in because its just so simple, yet its still effective.   This is another shot that I managed to capture after I was walking away from my original shooting position and was heading back to the car.  Maybe my new technique should be to turn up to my spot, unpack and then immediately repack all my stuff and then start heading back to the car.   It seems to work for me!   :-)

Hope you guys all like it.

Thanks,

Point Walter Sunset

Hi Everyone,

Well I was lucky enough to be out and about like Markie Mark and Col of Birds Eye View Photography were on Saturday evening and managed to grab a few shots of the awesome sunset.   What a sunset it was, it was so colourful and it just lasted forever, I was shooting for at least 20mins and even had time to sit back and watch the view as well.   This place is called Point Walter and on a good day you can actually walk right out into the middle of the Swan River.  Pretty cool.

The sunset was that intense I had to use a couple of filters to try and stop it from overpowering the foreground!   All in all it was a fantastic evening and hopefully we’ll have another one soon.

Cape Naturaliste Sunset

cape naturaliste, australian landscape photography, australian seascape photography,

Hi Everyone,

I managed to capture this shot last weekend while I was down south.   I thought I’d finished shooting for the night and was actually walking back to the car when I turned around once last time and saw this scene.  Needless to say I had to unpack my camera as quickly as possible as I won’t going to miss capturing this moody, dramatic, stormy sunset.   For those who like to know:

Camera Settings:

Aperture – F11

ISO – 1oo

Shutter – 6secs

Filter – 3 stop GND Singh Ray filter

As always I’m glad that I turned around as I was walking off.  Have you guys ever done that?  Started to walk off only to find that your best shot was unfolding right behind your back?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Hi Crew,

Its been a tough week at work and on Friday afternoon I decided to head out for a shoot at late notice.  I wanted to shoot somewhere that was new but not too far from home.  I remember that Mr ‘Stirling Stephen Williams Ranges’ shot a jetty near my house so I decided to head over there quickly and fire off a few shots to see what I could come up with.  I was surprised that after living near the Canning River all my life I’d never seen this jetty.

Camera Settings:

Aperture – F22

ISO – 50

Shutter – 5secs

I hope you guys enjoy the photo.  It was certainly nice taking the photo and watching the sunset.  The only thing missing was a beer in my hand!!!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Caught In A Moment

Hi Everyone

Don’t you just love it when a shot comes together?   I headed out and about on Friday afternoon as I just needed some of that good old outdoors fresh air.   After walking up and down the beach I saw this scene unfold in front of me and I just knew I had to capture it.   I started shooting on the beach but before I knew it I was knee deep in the water with my tripod on either side of the crack and I was just enjoying the moment.  Is there anything more satisfying than being outdoors when the sun is setting?   Its hard to beat isn’t?

Hope you all had a great weekend,

Burns Beach Sunrise

burns beach, landscape photographer, seascape photographer,

Hi Guys,

This is a seascape photo I managed to grab a couple of weeks ago from Burns Beach its a place I’m starting to look at more closely as there are heaps of rock formations around.   Yes there is heaps to photography in Perth but I have to admit I’m getting restless and hanging out to head down south again to Fletcher territory to get some awesome shots.  Well off to try and get some more shots.  Let’s hope the breeze doesn’t pick up and blow all these great clouds away!

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Cottesloe Beach Groyne

I decided this afternoon to head down to Cottesloe Beach again despite the heavy rain and huge seas slamming into the groyne.   I always knew that I was going to get soaked so I just wore an old jumper, shorts and put my camera into an underwater housing.   I’m glad I did, here is a shot of me just about to be soaked with the spray of a wave hitting the groyne.   It was heaps of fun though the few people who were there looked at me as if I was crazy.  Yes I did get soaked form head to toe.   To be honest it was pretty uplifting being sprayed by the ocean, like new life was being splashed onto me.

Hope you guys enjoy this photo of Cottesloe Beach.

Thanks,

Cottesloe Beach Steps

Hi Guys,

Here is another photo of Cottesloe Beach from Saturday afternoon.  I was just tinkering trying to get different shots of Cottesloe Beach because lets face it almost every angle of this place has been covered.   For good reason though, its a great place to be and a great place to shoot.   I think winter is just as much fun to shoot Cottesloe as summer as you can get some really dramatic images even without the colour of a summer sunset.

I didn’t realise it at the time but it looks like Dylan was just down the road shooting the same sunset as I was.   I hope you’re all having a great start to the week, I know I sure am. :-)

Thanks,
Jamie Paterson
