Oceanic Mermaids

Last week I was featuring some of the art I created from a recent group shoot, 30 photographers and two models. We were joined on the day by Jess Ami and Jess Garrett (at least their names were easy to remember lol). We occasionally do these big group shoots, so that there is a central…

Out of the studio – Moonlight Magic

This is another Mermaid shot from the other night. Someone had the brilliant idea of bringing an actual crystal ball…which I actually turned into a giant pearl in this image and it looked like Jess was irreverent or perhaps meditating in this shot, she looked so lovely and peaceful on the water’s edge, you could…

Out of the studio – Siren’s Song

Now, how cool is this? I went to a Mermaid Shoot at Half Moon Bay Surf Living Saving Club (boy that is a mouthful!) with about 30 other photographers to shoot some mermaids. Our Mermaids, that afternoon were both named Jess and Jess! We were supposed to be in two different groups, but I stepped…

Summer Outings – Harmers Haven

We were invited by another photography group for the first sunset shoot of the year at Harmer’s Haven in South Gippsland (far from the fires in East Gippsland). It was a glorious evening, high cloud, warm temps and light winds. It was a pretty sunset amongst the rocks, but not spectacular. Still, it was lovely…

Mondays Musings…

Oh what a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Should be more of them, but then how do the bills get paid? Especially after a busy and stressful weekend the week before. We had quite a few shoots and days out last weekend with a friend coming to stay from out of town. My camera died on me…

Our S.A. coastal adventure – day 5 part 4

After already having quite a day out, we then proceeded to drive down to Seal Bay for our Sea Lion guided tour on the beach. It was about one hour long and quite good, there were a few sea lions, mostly asleep on the sand, not quite as good as Cape Palliser in New Zealand,…

Our S.A. coastal adventure – day 5 part 3

Following on from Little Sahara, we then headed off to Vivonne Bay jetty for a quick look around before heading back to the Roadhouse for lunch. We went to the Vivonne Bay beach, some stayed, but we felt it was just another pretty beach, with little to offer apart from sand and water. I know…

Winter Outings – Kira’s visit to the beach

We do not have any actual grandchildren, neither of my daughters plan on any, any time soon. But we do have Grand Fur Babies…it sounds a little silly, but we do dote on them, Dexter is technically my Daughter’s Dog, not mine…but he does not seem to agree. Kira belongs to my Daughter and Son-in-law,…

Regular Random – Stacked Stones

I have found these phenomena before, these stacked stones, they seem to pop-up whenever we are travelling, Cairns to attract travellers and guide them somewhere, often they seem to be located near water…maybe they are sirens calling to the sea. To say I was a little surprised to see them just off the breakwater at…
