Distant Memories

distantmemories

Hi Everyone,

I’m trying to decide which version I like better and I can’t really make up my mind, so I thought I’d leave it to the masses to help me out.  Which one should I use?   So why the tittle ‘Distant Memories’?   Well the house in the photo is an abandoned house which is starting to decay.   I am absolutely obsessed with history and historical things so I had to get a photo of it.    I feel drawn to these houses (or other things like disused mines etc…)because it often causes me to stop and think that very real people lived in these places, often in extremely harse conditions.   They had hopes and dreams and worked hard to try and achieve them.   What happened to them?    Did they prosper and move on?   Did they try so hard until they had to give up?

So that explains why I took a photo of the ruined house, now back to the original question.  Which version do you prefer?

Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog.

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,

Mosman Bay 10 – Jamie 1 – Finally!!!

mosmanboatshed

I was fortunate enough the other night to catch up with Neal from Spool Photography and Kirk Hille of Kirk Hille Photography for an end of year shoot.    We started off at Narrows Bridge and hung around there for awhile but the light was not good to us unfortunately.    After watching the sunset we attempted to take a few photos under the bridge with higher isos to see what happened.   The results were pleasing but not sensational.   We then decided to play iso wars against the Mosman Bay boatsheds which have been my nemisis for the year.

Neal and I cranked up the isos on our camera and smiled with delight at the results.   Well at least I smiled,  I was wondering how much Neal had to drink as he was jumping in the air, yelling obsceneties and giggling like a school girl.  My guess is that he was happy with his Canon 5D MkII.    I think its awesome that I’m taking these sorts of photos late at night now, but when does one sleep?   I blame this latest lack of sleep squarely at the feet of Christian Fletcher, up until now I’d be heading home an hour after the sun set, but it was 10:30pm last night when I headed home and I was still tempted to fire off a few more shots at some other locations on the way home.  

Well now thanks to Flemming and Christian I can now shoot 24hrs a day!!!

Enjoy,

Jamie Paterson

Jamie’s Ravine

About six weeks ago when Neal, Kirk and I were coming back from a shoot when we spotted this little ravine and after we scrambled down the steep hill we started taking shots like we were kids in a candy store.   Any how as I was the first to spot it I had the honour of it being called Jamie’s Ravine. 

Down the bottom of the ravine there is a rock sitting in the middle of a little stream, I went down there and sat on the rock for what seemed like ages, it was just so relaxing listening to the water run past me.

If you look carefully you can see Neal from Spool Photography in this photo, obviously he won’t be in any prints (sorry Neal) but I thought I’d leave him in here for fun.  

Enjoy!!!

Outback Sunset

This was the first sunset that I saw on my Canning Stock Route trip.   We’d travelled 13hrs to get here and it was like an oasis in the outback.   I was so excited when I saw this and rushed down to the water to take it, I didn’t even worry about setting up my tent first.   This is what I love about the outback, the amazing sunsets and sunrises.

Hope you enjoy,

Jamie Paterson

Tranquility

Hi Everyone,

I joined in a quick afternoon shoot with both Neal and Kirk at a little stream that we found.   The light was so soft and fantastic so I couldn’t wait to get home and start working on the images, here is one of them.  I absolutely loved this place.  What do you guys think of it?

Shelly Beach

This is my new favourite place in WA.  Its called Shelly Beach, its 40mins out of Denmark and its simply a stunning beach.  I took another shot of it from a lookout which I’ll post later.   I was just struck with this place the moment we drove down to it and you have to drive down along the cliff face to get there.  The surf was great though I doubt I woud ever try surfing there, as I think a few massive bities might be lurking near by.  This is my first draft of the photo, but I like how its shaping up.

Waterfall Take 2

Hi Everyone,

A little something I took last weekend.   It was 8 images stiched together using the 50mm F1.2.   Again this was shot with Neal and Kirk and we got some awesome shots.    The best thing about being out and about on Sunday was that we got to see the most awesome sunset, in fact it was so good that I decided to just stand and absorb it all.  Was a great feeling.    We spent the Saturday and Sunday scrambling all over rocks and cliff faces so much so that I was struggling to walk until Thursday as I was that cramped up.
