A Photography Road Trip with Dan Paris
Good afternoon Ladies and Gents.
I recently received a comment on this very blog from a chap called Oscar who sounded like he was going through some pretty tough, emotional times. He was rather sad that the blog was ending, as it was the highlight of his week (his actual words!).
Well, FEAR NOT OSCAR! I may be back home in the UK but the blog lives on!
Just before I departed I headed down to Esperance on the Southern Coast of Western Australia and made two short films (the first of which was aired on the blog last week “What’s Up Doc?”).
In the second film I’m taken on a pretty regular day out down in Esperance….4WDing at Lucky Bay (Australia’s whitest beach), a master-class in photography, and scaling Frenchman’s Peak in beautiful Cape Le Grand National Park, before an Abalone collecting session followed by a beach BBQ, all with local photographer and very nice chap, Dan Paris.
The colours in this film are incredible. Some of the shots of Lucky Bay look as if Dan and I are in front of a blue screen on a film set and the background’s been digitally produced.
But I assure you Taste Master fans, there’s been no tampering or special effects on this blog!
The blues really ARE that blue, and the sand really IS that white.
(…and Dan Paris really IS that fella off Neighbours who went out with Libby Kennedy)
