Just a quick shot from my trip to London taken on the Millennium Bridge on a foggy morning in October. It was amazing to spend some time on the bridge watching people as they crossed, some not even noticing that St Pauls was peering above the fog… Taken with the Fuji XE-1 and 55-200m lens.

    Charlene - That’s a sensational image Mark. I could look at it all day.

    admin - Thanks Charlene, its was a magic morning! Just amazing how many people were just too caught up in getting to work to not see how beautiful it was….

I have just spent the last five weeks in the UK working on some personal projects and going to a few meetings for future work and thought I should at least get something up on the site. This is a shot of the old pier in Brighton that burnt down a few years ago. Shot […]

    Charlene - I must say that looks more like a pencil sketch, or charcoal drawing, than a photograph. Nice little camera you took it on too.

    I finally got my x-pro 1. Loving it!

  • June 18, 2012 - 3:51 pm

    admin - It does doesn’t it, it’s a photo I have had in my head for ages so was good to finally make it. The OMD did a pretty good job on the trip too – glad you are liking the X-Pro1.

Had a great fun Star Wars shoot today for the 501st Legion here in Perth – a little different from my usual portrait sessions! Close up shots with the Leica M9 and 50mm ‘Cron and the remaining with the Canon 5D MKII. Also have to thank Ze Weng Wong for fitting us in his studio at […]

    mervfrench - Now that is different !!

    admin - Not something you see every day in Perth…

  • March 31, 2012 - 3:31 am

    Charlene - VERY COOL!!!!! Wish I had been there 😀

  • July 9, 2012 - 5:23 pm

    Sandy@Shots - Brilliant!!

This is the the shot I took with the Leica M9 and the WATE set at 21mm from my shoot on Monday. Not quite sure what it is but I really liked this shot…

    Charlene - That floor looks like a CG creation. Their new offices are certainly something, i have to say.

    Some time ago I got my grubby hands on someone’s M8 and WATE, and took it for a quick walk around the city. Must say, that was my one and only time handling a Leica and it was a helluvan experience… :)

  • January 30, 2012 - 5:31 am

    admin - I do love that lens.. Took me a while to save up for but I’d never part with it now….

Can’t believe January is nearly at an end already! This week has been busy with a few shoots and a pile of meetings and below are a few random shots, one for a full page magazine advert for Missionpac.com based here in Perth who produce Merino wool and cotton products for the military, federal police […]

    mervfrench - I like the shot from Venns Mark, well spotted.

    admin - And pretty good coffee too…

During the Christmas break I have been trying to catch up with a few photo books that I have had on the shelf plus try a few techniques that may prove a bonus to my workflow. The animated GIF file below was taken from 10sec of video with the candle being added as a mask […]

    Charlene - Very nice. Never realised Photoshop handled video as well!

  • January 2, 2012 - 5:48 am

    admin - Yes you PS CS4 and 5 can open video files which can be saved / rendered and then you can re-open the video as a layered image with each frame on a separate layer.

Below is a selection of images from a day shoot at a hospital here in Perth this week in order to add to the Health Departments library of stock images.. Was certainly a very busy and exciting day so I am looking forward to another two day shoot in a couple of weeks  time. All […]

The shots below are from Quindalup jetty in Dunsborough and shot over two days this weekend, I used both the Leica M9 and the new Fuji X100 so would be interested if anyone knows which shots were taken with which camera. Looks like the X100 may work out to be a pretty good little landscape […]

    Charlene - My feed reader is chock full of tantalizing X100 goodness from all over the world. This is getting a little bit ridiculous!

    It could be a sign… 😉

  • May 30, 2011 - 3:55 am

    admin - I think it must be… Great little camera – but you already know that!

  • June 5, 2011 - 6:45 am

    mervfrench - Like the middle one myself, just a little different than the norm from this spot.

    I have no idea which was taken with what, i’d be guessing.. Care to spill the beans?

    Still seeding at the moment , about a week or so to go. i’ll get in touch when we finnish.

    Cheers.

    admin - Hi Merv, it is a bit of a classic location and one of those that has been on my list every time I have been in Dunsborough. Usually the tides have been wrong or the weather rubbish! The bottom image is the Leica shot, the other two are with the Fuji x100, the files at hi res were really sharp for all three files, I was really impressed with how well it went. Not selling the M9 any time soon though!!

  • June 6, 2011 - 6:21 am

    mervfrench - Actually Mark , every time I’ve been to this spot it looks different to any shots I’ve seen and I always think I’m at the wrong jetty.

  • June 6, 2011 - 6:34 am

    admin - That’s what I did. The first couple of time I couldn’t even find it!

Sea Shepherd held it’s Art for the Ocean function last night at the Fremantle Prison, among the entertainment for the evening was the great John Butler who played a great set and had the crowd enthralled. There was both silent and public auctions during the evening for some beautiful works of art and by the […]

Today I had the opportunity to attend a natural light workshop with Peter Coulson from Koukei in Melbourne, Peter’s fashion and personal work is amazing and I would recommend to anyone no matter what your skill level in photography to try and get on one of his courses when he is in WA again. We […]

    mervfrench - Wow , you had a better day than i did, there was nothing like that in Dalwallinu today.

    :)

Had a trip down to Dunsborough to shoot some shots for a friends wedding last week and thought I would post a few here. The B&W images below are of the brides mother who is 97 who danced non stop and when I left at 2230hrs she was still going. Made me feel rather lame […]

    mervfrench - Mark, did you use a flash with these ?

  • February 17, 2011 - 4:39 am

    admin - No, all available light at iso 1600 on the M9… Did shoot a couple with the 5D MKII and dragged the shutter with the flash that came out pretty well….

I have just returned from a five week trip to the UK which was fun but a bit chilly! Below are a selection of images that I have managed to look at so far and that I am pretty happy with, they are a bit of a mixed bunch really but give a pretty good […]

    mervfrench - Welcome back Mark.

    Nice set of images.

    I wondering how the chilly weather treated you, they’ve had it pretty bad in places over there.

    Merv.

  • January 26, 2011 - 5:09 pm

    admin - Cheers Merv, it was a bit fresh over there but good fun and made lots of pictures which was good… Nice to be home in the warm though!

  • February 8, 2011 - 7:53 am

    Trish Lewis - WOW Mark, your photography gets better and better. These pictures of UK are just awesome.

This shot was part of  a shopping centre I have driven by quite often and always thought I would like to get an abstract shot of. Not sure what it is but I like it… Shot with the Leica M9 and 50mm CV 1.1.

    Grace - What shopping centre did you take the photo at?

  • February 15, 2011 - 3:06 am

    admin - Hi, it was at Armadale shopping centre in WA if that helps..

The two images below are from a series I have been working on for a while that should comprise about ten pieces once completed, each image consists of about 12 to 15 separate composites and are finished in CS5.

    mervfrench - I think your onto something there Mark, I love it, that is art.

  • November 27, 2010 - 7:09 pm

    admin - Thanks Merv, they look pretty good printed up too. I need to get out and shoot some more textures though…
