Karijini Here I Come!

19 04 2010

I’m so excited.  Tomorrow afternoon I leave for what I’m anticipating will be an incredible photography workshop.  I’m heading out to Karjini National Park in the Pilbara for a workshop that is being run by Peter Eastway, Christian Fletcher, and Tony Hewitt.  Three exceptionally talented pros are taking us to a landscape Mecca to immerse ourselves in the gorgeous colours of the outback and this magical place.  I will be offline for the week, and the guys have asked me to run a guest class one night on Night Photography and Light Painting, so that should be fun…. I’ve got a special idea in mind that I’m going to try to execute with the group.

As usual I will be taking my little video camera, so when I get back I will share with you the behind-the-scenes mayhem of this incredible workshop.  Just to make you a bit jealous I am going to leave with some incredible imagery from Mike Fletcher (Christian’s brother).   He shot this with a Canon 5DII.   Enjoy…….  See you all in just over a week… hopefully with some half-decent images.


First Blood – Karijini Trip

Well it is only about 3 weeks until a group of us go on an incredible photographic adventure.  I’m attending a workshop that is run by Christian Fletcher, Tony Hewitt, and Peter Eastway.  There are about 16 of us heading up to Karijini National Park in the Pilbara.

Christian with the new love of his life.

Anyway last night I was in Perth so I put out the call to see if anyone wanted to meet up.  Mark Stothard kindly offered up his 43 ft cruiser (I was a bit miffed that he didn’t order True North back to base for the drink session 😉  and a group of us went cruising up the Swan river and basically talked crap and started the jibs and jokes that will surely come when we are all up in Karijini.

Christian was putting his new Phase One through it’s paces (I think it costs more than my house… definitely more than my car).  Anyway it was a very enjoyable night.  Anybody that wants to see a few snaps of last night can view them here.
