MY NEWS AND ESCAPADES

It was great to catch up with a couple of people from my past workshops here in Marree a few days ago, one of them Margaret stayed for a few days with here husband Mal, we were able to catch up have coffees and dinner together a couple of times before they took off for Birdsville and beyond. Always nice to have people make a point of catching up with me.

Every year I like to set myself a project to do to challenge myself. This year its up a mountain in the Flinders Ranges hence the name "on the edge". So far its been extremely challenging. Once I drive all the way to my location its a massive walk up and out and I am either walking up or down in the dark. The most challenging though is the wind conditions which are rarely correct, and I find myself walking all the way up and find out its just to windy for what I want to do. I am shooting alot of grass trees and any breathe of wind is painful to work with, with these particular trees. When everything comes together its just magic and makes it all worth while again. I have only released a couple of shots so far and am waiting until I have finshed the project before I show them all. I have been staying at the location for 2 days at a time to utilise sunrise and sunset as I generally go up twice and last trip I went up 3 times and struggled the 3rd time as I was really tired. Its amazing what a banana and bag of snakes will do to boost energy just enough to get you through. I need a donkey to carry all my shit up that hill! The good thing is I am super fit from all the weight I carry (camera bag) and walking I am doing and thats gotta be a plus.

Another epic trip completed in the red centre. With everyone coming away with some great shots and some new information about how to use their cameras to get the best out of them. If you come on a trip with me you can expect to be challenged but in a way that will help you improve your photography. I will push you to try new things if your more of a novice and am generally not far away if you need help with something. I always show people what I am doing and seeing so they can try something different and get a little more creative with their own work and style. Its all about sharing information and helping each other in an easy going environment full of great locations. The more you put in the more you will get out of my trips. Yep you will get tired as we have very early starts most mornings and late finishes but with my itinary I have done my best to break it up so your not completely wrecked which is for my benefit also as I will not drive exhausted as its outright dangerous. I know this area like the back of my hand and the best spots and when the best time to photograph is so do yourself a favour and book on next years trip if you want an easy way to see the best locations without having to do a massive amount of homework and research as I have done all that already and am good to go. You can read the testimonials from this trip in the testimonials tab and from the other trips that I run. They are all great trips and full of their own challenges. Hope to see one day :)
