Great Ocean Road Workshop 2012
Having just returned from an awesome workshop at Victoria's Great Ocean Road (note the gaggle of photographers shooting feverishly as we are treated to some direct sunlight - lasted just 2 minutes), I thought i would share some observations.
We had a group of 10 participants for the workshop and 2 guides (myself and Tom Putt) weather was good (although my brand new D800 did get a few spots of rain - don't worry - she is fine) and the landscape was amazing. We have a number of spots scouted out and work around the weather and anticipated sunrise/set success - we were based at Port Campbell.
We spent 3 days capturing photographs, learning to manage and produce our images, having robust discussion about the subjective nature of photography. We ate beautifully prepared food and enjoyed fine wine's and it occurred to me that the workshops we run are so much more that photography.
It's about meeting like minded people, being inspired by other peoples images and points of view. Its about having a chance to try out new equipment and getting to some of the most beautiful scenery that Australia has to offer. Its an opportunity to concentrate on aspects of your photography that you don't have time to in the "real world". Its about being proud of the photograph you have taken that everyone is admiring during the critique. Its about feeling confident enough to join in the discussion on the aesthetic merits of a particular image.
You will make friends that will last forever and take images that will be around long after we are gone.
I love conducting workshops with Tom and just wanted to share.
I'm hoping some of the recent participants will join and share their images - i have uploaded some of my own on my page.

The Seaweed – Art meets science App even includes the exact GPS co-ordinates and shows you on a map where the image was captured! Check it out here.

I have done it - I have launched my first iPhone App.
It's part of a long term project and just a stepping stone towards a much more comprehensive application I have in the pipeline. Australian Wildlife is an App for the iPhone that introduces children (or adults) to the sights and sounds of Australian wildlife. It also contains fascinating facts and can be used as an educational tool.
