Peak Mountains National Park, Central Highlands, QLD

Hello!

I hope you're all well?

I'm just giving you a sneak preview of a new collection of photographs that will be winging its way to my website next week. I'm currently out in the Central Highlands of QLD where I've been photographing a number of locations around the Peak Mountains National Park over the last week or so. It's been early mornings and late starts but it's been worth braving the sub zero starts for the absolutely stunning views. Here's a sneak peak, a jpeg straight from my camera to you internet folk. A little taste of what's to come next week when I return home.

I hope you like it!

Best wishes,

James

The latest news in my world!

This is just a quick post to let you know a couple of exciting pieces of news.

News item 1:

I've recently applied to join the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) as an Emerging Member. Well today I learnt that I've actually bypassed this stage and have been granted Full Acredited Member status on the basis of a portfolio of images that I was required to submit to the AIPP. This portfolio was judged by award standard judges within AIPP so I'm absolutely thrilled and humbled to be joining a highly skilled and elite collective of photographers in Australia. As soon as I've submitted the paperwork, I will be using the AIPP logos on this website and will be able to advertise this officially through my various media outlets and advertising material.

News item 2:

I've had a number of enquiries recently about the availability of prints of some of my photographs. Well I'm delighted to announce that my new e-store will be active fairly soon! I'm currently working away in the QLD bush but when I return I should be able to finalise and activate the store. You will then be able to purchase downloads of any of my images. You will also be able to purchase prints of selected photographs too. Most of which will be hand printed and signed by myself.  The larger prints will presently be handled by an outside source but I will soon be able to produce these myself. I'm proud to be able to supply you with a product that is created by my own hands, from start to finish. I'll be sure to let you know when this goes live.

Thanks for continuing to support me and stay tuned to my website and social media for the latest updates.

Thank you! 

James

 

 

 

The Fujifilm X-T1, first jpegs..

Today i managed a short trip out up to the forests of Mount Coot tha, overlooking Brisbane. My plan was to see how the jpegs turn out from the new Fuji X-T1. As it happens they are just as beautiful as the previous line of Fuji X cameras that have the X-Trans CMOS II sensor. I'm really surprised how good they are and it's even made me contemplate shooting jpegs more often instead of RAW files on work that is not so critical. You can see some examples below of the type of quality that you can expect from the Fuji X-T1 jpegs. All of these images used Fuji's Velvia jpeg setting which is designed to mimic the Velvia film that was produced prior to the digital revolution. Velvia is designed to be more vibrant and is ideally suited to landscape and nature photography. Click each image below to see it in a nice lightbox format.
