Mirrorless Camera Misconceptions

October 11th, 2018

A mirrorless camera, what is the point?  I’m not doubting the validity of mirrorless, its a serious question.   I love mirrorless technology and I think it’s clearly the future of camera manufacturing.  But I also think many people seem to have missed or forgotten the reason a mirrorless camera was so attractive in the first place.  Small and light… Remember that?

Mirrorless Camera Misconceptions

So you have your trusty DSLR setup with 4 reliable carefully chosen lenses, maybe a 16-35mm f2.8, or a 14-24mm f2.8… A 24-70 f2.8 and the quintessential 70-200mm f2.8.  You are prepared for just about any photo opportunity.  So you are ready to head out, you go to pick up your camera bag and… Read the rest of this entry »

Winter Wonder of Japan Photo Tour 2019

October 4th, 2018

Robert van Koesveld and I have just put together a Japan photo tour in Winter for next year in February.    Actually this sounds like we threw the tour together in a hurry, this is not the case.   We have actually been putting together this tour for some months, and Robert has run a similar winter in Japan photo tour before, but we have only just this week released it… and there are only 2 spots left already…  and I haven’t even sent out a newsletter yet!

Camera Insurance – Are you sure you are insured?

September 24th, 2018

Camera Insurance, like all insurance is pretty uninspiring stuff and if you are like most people, it’s not something you want to think too much about.  You pay your money and the job is done, right?  Until you find out you are actually not insured, which always happens at the worst possible moment.

Are you really insured?

I have been insuring all my camera gear with WFI (Westfarmers Federated Insurance) for about 14 years now, in fact they have all my insurance.  This included my Gallery insurance for fire, theft and damage, Public liability and workers compensation.  They also insure my car, my house and contents.  It all adds up to rather a substantial amount of money each year, just my camera gear alone comes in at around $2,900 per year and has been over $4,000 per year at the peak of my gear addiction…

Adam Monk Fremantle GalleryAfter 13 years of running the Fremantle gallery it has come down to just two weeks to go until the end… Well, until I close the gallery anyway, which for me is really a beginning, the beginning of the next chapter.

The Making of Spa Pool Hamersley Gorge

March 18th, 2015

Spa Pool Hamersley Gorge, Karijini National Park

Spa Pool in Hamersley Gorge.  Karijini NP, western Australia, uneditedThis image was shot on my last trip to the Pilbara in the middle of last year, Spa Pool is a small rock pool (about the size of a big spa) in Hamersley Gorge which is part of Karijini National Park.  A lot of visitors to the park skip Hamersley Gorge since you have to drive quite a way outside the park to get there.  It looks inviting doesn’t it?  Like it would be nice to sit in, as the name suggests?  I have seen people swim in Spa Pool… Briefly. It’s very very cold.

This image was shot in the early pre-sunrise light of dawn, so there was no sunlight bouncing around causing havoc with the shadows.  At that time of day the light is still directional as the eastern part of the sky (where the sun is about to rise) Read the rest of this entry »
