Recently I entered a photography competition which asked photographers to capture Callan Park. Callan Park used to house a mental institution until the early 2000's and has quite a fascinating history. The grounds are quite beautiful and offer plenty of photographic opportunities. Below are the two images which I entered into the competition. Neither of them one a prize, however, the sunrise image was used in multiple print articles. I was quite pleased to see my photograph being used to publicise the contest.
The Formula Company put together a Lamborghini Esperienza for media and current owners. While both the Lamborghini Huracan and the Aventador look nice just sitting on the bitumen, they were much more impressive on the track. Below are a number of images of the cars sitting in both pit lane and driving around the track. I was also fortunate enough to hang out one of the cars and photograph two of the Huracans as they drove around the track.
As you can see it was a nice day which made for some great photographs. For the most part I wanted to make sure that the speed and agility of these cars...
I was asked to provide still images for the launch of the new Lamborghini Huracan which was attended by a number of journalists and current Lamborghini owners. It was fun to be surrounded by not only seven of the Huracans but also a pair of Aventadors as well. Below are a couple of photographs of the car details.
Stay tuned to see some of the images of the cars both on and off the track.
Last week I got tired of my beard and decided to have some fun while shaving it off. That's how this little project was started. The rules were that I had to shave a part of the beard off symmetrically for five days and take a photograph. My wife Katie took all of the photographs once I set up all of the lighting. All the photographs are simple one light from high camera left, with a silver reflector on camera right to brighten up that side of the face.
This project ended up being even more fun than I expected because of the different responses I received. As people caught on to what I was doing...
I again led a photowalk in Sydney as part of the Kelby World Wide Photowalk. It was quite successful with new friendships being created and old ones being rekindled. As always there were interesting people with varied interests and levels of experience who took part. I highly recommend a photowalk of this sort to get better acquainted with the photography community in your area. Here are some of the handful of photographs I took on the walk with my new Fuji X-T1 camera.
Thank you everyone for coming and making it a success. You can see more images from the photowalk at the Flickr Group.
I had an opportunity to go out on Sydney Harbour to observe ferry vessel wake trials. These trials were designed to measure the height and energy of the wakes created by various ferries and would create a baseline for future vessels. It was interesting to see the effect of speed and vessel weight on the size of the wake, including the amount of energy. We got lucky though because the weather was a bit nasty, but the water was quite calm which allowed for more accurate measurements, plus there were plenty of rainbows around.
Since I was observing I brought a camera and documented the work that...
