Mondays Musings…

Another busy weekend, Hubby and I took the camera in to get the sensors cleaned before our next trip away, while we were waiting we went and saw the new Lion King movie; loved it. Fabulous and the detail was amazing. If you have not seen it yet, do. Ignore the critics who usually can’t…

Monday’s Musings…

It has certainly been a mixed bag and a completely crazy busy few days. From a whole day in the kitchen and studio, with more food photography, more test recipes and more shots. Oh and some eating too lol, this week seemed to focus around tomatoes. So many dishes this week ended with a wonderful…

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…

I am stiff and sore and happy after yesterday’s massive workshop at The Potterage, this has been several months in the planning, worry about a dozen minute details, but the day was perfect, the weather was perfect, blue sky and fluffy white clouds, it actually got quite warm in the sun. Magical late Autumn light…

Monday’s Musings…

Things have settled down again after my two extra long weekends in a row, sad but true. I spent the weekend either setting up for, running or recovering from two back to back workshops, it was exhausting, but so much fun…just not sure if I am game to try that again, but you watch I…

In the Studio – Dark and Moody Workshop

Every year I host this workshop at least 2-3 times, it never seems to fail. I have other new ventures and offerings this year, but I thought I would start off with the same old D&M Workshop. I set everything up pretty much the same, but I like to offer different subjects and change things…

Mondays Musings…

Moth worked nights last week, it does not happen very often, but when it does it tends to throw everything out of schedule…but I did manage to get a lot of work done, as I could work in the evenings without feeling guilty 🙂  Most of my work was paperwork or writing articles, and blog…
