An ND5 Voyage on True North II

An ND5 Voyage on True North II

Video still from Michael Fletcher's Youtube video featuring True North II See it on Youtube here:https://youtu.be/LGmj6VTxzq4?si=Bqx43h4uQJ0HZGMe Many readers may remember ND5 - Ninety Degrees Five, a collaboration between Les Walking, Tony Hewitt, Christian Fletcher, Michael Fletcher and me. We've been a little quiet for the last few years, but our website (www.nd5.com.au) is still active and we're still active - just we haven't been doing a lot together. And Covid got in the way of our last...

The Tree Near Tolkien Rock

The Tree Near Tolkien Rock

Tree in flooded Awatere River, Middlehurst, NZDJI Mavic Pro 2, f2.8 @ 1/120 second, ISO 100 As we continue to spend time on our passion, it surprises me how often you can find a new way of doing something - like photography. Sometimes it's just a change of attitude or perhaps being influenced by another artist or photographer. It can also be a change or development in technology and there's no doubt AI is really going to move things along (especially with Adobe's new Structure Reference...

What Is a Birrida?

What Is a Birrida?

Birrida, Shark BayPhase One XF 150MP, 55mm Schneider Kreuznack, f4 @ 1/1600 second, ISO 160 What is a birrida? I call them claypans or saltpans, but technically (I'm told), the things what look like claypans or saltpans up at Shark Bay are birridas. Birridas started life as small salt-water lakes between sand dunes when the water level was higher than it currently is. But as the sea level dropped, the source of water disappeared and the lakes dried out to be called birridas! It is quite...

Middlehurst Phase One Experience 14-20 August 2024 AU$14,995

A special medium format experience with Phase One.
$ 995.00

Phase One, Peter Eastway and Tony Hewitt are combining resources to offer a special edition of the Middlehurst Art Photography workshop, with a special emphasis on medium format photography and the Phase One system.

Please note, the first week is sold out, so this is the only week left for 2024. However, as Peter and Tony personalise the experience for each photographer, you can happily attend the Phase One week and the experience for you will be exactly the same as if you attended the first week. 

Middlehurst is a high end photography retreat and experience for photographers who want to better understand how to use their camera and are ready to learn about the philosophy and aesthetics of art photography and image-making.

The Phase One Middlehurst Art Photography Experience is limited to eight participants. You don’t have to own a Phase One camera because you’ll be given the opportunity to shoot with one provided by Phase One. And you’ll get to edit the images and discover exactly why Phase One and Middlehurst are great matches in photography.

In all other respects, this will be the same amazing program Peter and Tony have been presenting for the past 9 years.

It is likely to be cold outside and the weather is variable, exactly what we want. However, the lodgings are wonderful! Built in 2019, the new ’Quarters’ feature private rooms and modern shared bathrooms. And best of all, we have our own chef - the food is nothing short of stellar!

So, the location is five stars. Food six stars! Lodgings are incredibly comfortable and now the scene is set for you to not only take some great photographs, but receive world-class instruction from two Phase One ambassadors.

If you’re interested, please read on! But don’t delay - places book up very quickly.
