I'm not sure if i'll ever get my car clean again

Finally I have got to shoot Rally Australia a round of the World Rally Champion -ship. It was quite a surprise when somebody from the event rang me and asked why I had not applied for accreditation and would I be interested in doing photography for their media releases.

So just a few days later I was heading up to the Tweed Coast of New South Wales. Shakedown was awesome with a great jump and some nice sunshine. What a great start to the weekend. Although I'm not sure if i'll ever get my car clean again and that is dust not snow!

I then had a job to shoot 3 of the drivers from the Production Car World Rally Champion -ship, 2009 champion Czech Martin Prokop, Norwegian Eyvind Brynildsen and Bernado Sousa from Portugal for a media release for the WRC's PR company. They were to meet Ironman Dwayne Thuys and have a go at surf skiing and surfing. All 3 guys really entered the spirit of things and I got some great shots that were published all over the world.

I shot the Prime Minister today!

I shot the Prime Minister today! I got to shoot Kevin which is how he kept introducing himself to every body. "Hello I'm Kevin" he would say. The job was for the Health Department's other type of doctors, the spin doctors in Canberra. I have to admit he came across as a genuinely nice guy for a politician and was really helpful. Anyway the pics were not bad.

Do we have to get out and push?

Had to do a big commercial shoot today. This included aerial as well as ground shots of a new shopping center in Kempsey. I had already had to postpone it once because the plane was not back from being serviced. Unfortunately when I got to the airport the plane wouldn't start. This really inspires you with confidence so "do we have get out and push?"

"No, we'll try spinning the prop by hand". No way would I do it but the engine was soon running. Unfortunately the battery was so flat that it would not charge. It's handy to have some electic power in a plane for radios and other bits like that so we had no option but to turn it off and stick the plane on charge for half an hour!
As you can see by the picture this worked although the people at the funeral we kept doing loops over at 600ft probably wished we hadn't.

Been in sports shooter mode today

I've definitely been in sports shooter mode today. I was up early to shoot a surf comp at the crack of dawn for my website and then this afternoon Newcastle Jets v Sydney FC.

If this Hyundai A League warm up game is anything to go by the Jets are in for an ordinary season. Sydney won 2-0 with both goals scored by Socceroo John Aloisi.

Piper Navajo was a bit quicker than the Cessna

I've done a bit of aerial photo graphy over the years but never had the opportunity to shoot air to air. A new aviation charter business in Port Macquarie commissioned me to create a logo and website for them. (

So this gave me the perfect excuse to get a couple of planes and go for a fly and get some aerial shots. The twin engined Piper Navajo was a bit quicker than the Cessna I was in but at least I could shoot with the window down. The clients & I are all really happy with the shots and I particularly like the one with Port Macquarie in the background.
