In the studio – Get the Shot! Workshop

It never rains but it pours right? People told me when I first listed this workshop in December (I normally never run workshops this late in the year) that it may not sell out, as it is too close to the Christmas crazy season, and while that is possibly true, it did not stop this…

I keep telling myself eight more days of work, just eight days! Then I an on holidays for nearly three weeks! The weather has been improving, although we are in for a scorcher today, 37°C expected today. Had a super fabulous weekend, with a slight crimp in it…my dishwasher died. It was old so I…

Spring Workshops – The Potterage

I hosted an afternoon workshop at The Potterage back in May, such a wonderful afternoon and the class sold out so quickly, I decided another held in Spring would be wonderful…and it was. We had perfect weather, nice and sunny, light winds and warmer temperature, without being too hot. It was a slightly smaller class…

It’s not every day you get to meet your hero…

Many, many years ago I picked up a camera, no secret there. At first, I wanted to learn to shoot beautiful landscapes and waterfalls…and I did. But it was never enough. There was something missing. I stumbled across a young artist by the name of Brooke Shaden, her work set my mind on fire, like…

Workshops – The Potterage

A little while back I arranged a workshop with ten students at the iconic Potterage in the Victorian Dandenong Ranges.  A beautiful French Provincial and Tuscan Villa inspired house, full of vintage wares and antiques, from the floors, the French doors and windows to the furniture. A Lifestyle or still life photographers dream. It was…

Well, a bit of a mixed bag this week…first week of June and Winter has hit, grey, cold, windy and wet, the surrounding hills had snow not too far from us and it has been miserable (well I think so, I am NOT a Winter person). Saturday I ran the first of my Light Painting…

It’s been a bit of a busy weekend, but not at the same time…a long overdue visit with a photography friend who lives a couple of hours away, we catch up when we can and take turns but it is still a five-hour drive there and back, we occasionally make a weekend of it. We…
