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…

Digital Art – Jewels from the Deep

I have been featuring some recent artwork from a Mermaid beach shoot, but this is probably my favourite. The actual water was shot in a pool in Bali back in 2017. I had fun use the Puppet Warp feature in Photoshop, as Jess was actually kneeling in the sand…she didn’t really look like she was…

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…

I have not stopped at this jetty before, but have driven through Grantville many times on the way to and from other locations. I had seen some images take by other photographers for this location…

Our S.A. coastal adventure – day 6 part 3

We then stopped at Weirs Cove, most tourists seem to bypass it, but it was wonderful, I could not look down to the steps and little jetty so far below! Now that is what you call a long drop jetty. This is where fresh supplies were offloaded by boat for the lighthouse keepers (Cape de…

Spring Outings – Sunset at Powlett River

We were invited to photograph sunset at the Mouth of Powlett River in Daylston, along the Bass Coast, we have never been there before and photos of rocks, moss, and surf looked wonderful, how could we say no? So we met everyone in the carpark and walked the 600-700m along the river’s edge to the…

Our Tasmanian Adventure – Day 7 (Part 1)

Yet another early start as we wanted to go back to Remarkable Cave car park and fly the drone. We did two runs, one for video and one for photos, The Dolomite cliffs must have caused some interference, as we lost GPS signal at one point and the drone got blown out to sea. All good,…
