Well back in Perth after a week shooting in Sydney for my Sydney Landscape Portfolio. While the light was pretty bland for the first few days time was not wasted. I managed to scout out some nice Sydney Photographic spots for a very near future trip back.
The second part of the trip was spent in and around the Central Coast where I hooked up with Brent Pearson, Oat and Matt for a morning shoot at a local beach. With some of the stunning work I have seen from Brent over the last year or 2 via Brents FlickR Site it was a treat to photograph one of his favorite locations that morning. While the swell was huge (for a west aussie) and the tide was not as low as expected looking over my files I’m pretty sure there is enough captures to make a nice image or 2 for the portfolio.
I photographed every morning and every evening, getting up around 4-4.30am each morning and returning back to my hotel room well after sunset each day. To say I am tired now is an understatement. Most days after the morning shoot I would just go explore expect one day, the cloud and skies where just gorgeous for early afternoon and I found myself hitting some of those gorgeous Central Coast Beach locations taking mid afternoon captures before evening came and I set up for my evening shoot.
In the end I ended up with numerous future locations planned for future trips and around 2000 images to work through over the coming months as well as making contact with CFL (Ken Duncans Printing Labs) on a personnel basis. So I am happy with the work load I managed to achieve while away from home.
Heres an image Brent took while I was not aware. I spent most of this morning in surf up to my knees.I am pretty sure that is Matt in he background. All good fun.
Once again thanks Brent Oat and Matt for taking the time to come out for a shoot. If any of you visit WA one day we’ll surely hook up for a shoot or 2
Where to next ? Hmm I have an idea 😉
