Karijini – The Great Unknown

7 05 2010

You know what has surprised me the most about my Karijini experience?  Since I have come back, I’ve been boring the living hell out of every living thing I have come into contact with…. “I just got back from one of the most beautiful places in the world… want to see some pictures….”

I would have spoken to at least 30 people over here in Sydney and Melbourne, and so far not a single person has heard of Karijini.  Now I know that it is probably pretty common over in Sand Groper land, but it amazes me how somewhere this beautiful can be so undiscovered and unknown amongst Aussies (much less overseas photographers).

Perhaps we should just keep it that way…. our little secret.

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.
