Yet another nice calm warm evening by the sea, but with autumn now upon us, I’m looking forward to some large swells to surf and photograph.
We all need a good clean once in a while. One of my favourite monuments so far.
Bit of interesting info for you.
"The Monument to the Discoveries was originally built for the 1940 World Exhibition. It celebrated the achievements of explorers during the Age of Discoveries and the creation of Portugal’s empire. The monument was only built as a temporary structure and it was demolished a couple of years later
The monument we see today is an exact replica of the original one. It was was built in 1960 on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Henry the Navigator’s death. Henry the Navigator was a driving force behind the overseas exploration and he financed many of the expeditions”.
My experience Purchasing and Flying with Lithium batteries.
My new outdoor swimming pool. Nice, but just a bit chilly.
Estoril Tamariz, Portugal
Before moving to Portugal i had to stop in London for a shot and needed to purchase a Vagabond Mini™ Lithium (120VAC model). Normally i would have had the item posted directly to New Zealand, but Lithium batteries can´t be flown to New Zealand, (don’t ask me why), so i had the item shipped directly to London; i had to pay an extra postage fee of around $65 to cover extra paper work?
I then needed to fly to Portugal with the battery pack and couldn’t find any solid advice on-line so i facebooked easy-jet, (i always Facebook companies now as i get a lot quicker response than email), any way , turns out Lithium batteries are OK on Easyjet as long as they are in your hand luggage, no lithium batteries aloud in the hold.
Its always best to check with your airline as they all have different rules, but i have heard it all comes down the airport security baggage handler no matter what the airline say, thankfully they didn’t even ask to have a look at my camera bag, which is a first?
Just been going through my library of images and i came across this image of me. Which was taken when i was taking some picture of the owner of sweetree. The beekeeper suit certainly adds a few pounds.
Snap shot of the points for the surfers, but the fog was far more interesting to photograph.
Another quick shot with Stacia Jensen in the studio. With most shots you try and hide the shadow, yet I wanted something a bit more graphical, we tried a few different poses yet this was one of my favourites.
Opening night next Friday the 28th at the Framing Workshop, hope you can join me:)
I have been receiving a few briefs for some atmospheric travel shots, so thought it would be a good time to jump on the Raglan Boat Charters to grab a few sunset images. Highly recommended
Brief was for a portrait of a fit arm, not to muscular, for a sports drink.
