I’ve really neglected this blog in the last 6 months. But I have been blogging regularly on my work blogs.

And for your viewing pleasure and my procrastination from doing other work here are some of my favourite photos from the last 6 months in no particular order.
The Gold Coast of Australia is a well known and very popular destination for holiday makers as well as a great place to live and work.
Last week I had the opportunity to be paid to sit on the beach for 3 hours or so as runners in a race came past me. While waiting for runners to come I was able to shoot the various people and activities that came past. With a backdrop of skyscrapers it is a pretty cool view. I was limited to the one location, so my surfing shots for example are not the best shots as the sun was in the wrong place. It was also a blustery windy winter day and quite cool so most people were well wrapped up enjoying the beach for a casual stroll, exercise or just enjoying the view.
Here are some pictures from the morning. None of these are edited – just straight out of the camera as I saw it on the day.
Compared to the runner sweating, struggling to keep up with the others, grimacing as they get to the top of a hill, it looks simple. Through gritted teeth the athlete tops the hill, only to see a photographer sitting comfortably there waiting to capture their pain.
Sometimes the photographer is seen sitting in a chair in the shade with a cold drink. He has the gall to call out asking the struggling runner to jump or smile!
“I wish I had your job” I’ve been told numerous times.
I haven’t written a blog post for two months, and this one is going to be short. Been super busy – hence the lack of blogging. Follow the photoshoots we have done in that time on Dreamcoat Photography and Dreamsport Photography.
Here are some of my fave pics I’ve taken in the last two months. I have won two competitions with photos in this time also.
