Gold Coast SLR Beach workshop

We are very excite to launch a brand new SLR workshop which will take place on the gorgeous Kira beach on the Gold Coast.

This workshop will address many of the issues faced when shooting under bright light light, coping with the changing light as the sun sets as well as having fun with slower shutter speeds. Just 20 minutes drive from Surfers Paradise, Coolangatta/Kira is a popular destination for surfers and sun worshipers alike.


For bookings and more information visit the Learn Photography website.

Check out this seriously amazing behind-the-scenes video of black & white landscape photographer Michael Levin at work. The entire video was shot on a Canon 5DMkII and I recommend watching in HD full screen - incredible!

State library in Monochrome

The State Library of Queensland must be one my favourite buildings of all time. Not only is it a wonderful library with first class facilities, but it is an amazing building to walk around with great views of the Brisbane river and five levels that feature some incredible architecture and spaces to discover every time you make a visit. The library was voted Australia’s ‘Building of the Year’ at the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) Awards ceremony in 2007 a year after opening and is a marvel of concrete, wood and glass that anyone visiting the South Bank Cultural Centre should pay a visit.

During the weekend I spent a few moments capturing some views of the SLQ.

Link of the week

As a photography fan I'm inspired and intrigued by the work of other photographers and never tire of looking at photography either online, in books, photography magazines and of course exhibitions. So a new feature of this blog is to share a link to a particular photography related website, gallery or video that I've stumbled across and hope you will also find inspiring, educational, interesting and fun!

So to kick things off I would like to showcase 'Framed' which is website that features a series of in-depth, behind the scene videos of photographers at work.
