This new home located just metres from the beach in the northern Perth suburb of Iluka, is another stunning residence from one of Perth's premium home builders, Beaumonde Homes. This stunning family residence features multiple large living spaces an specious alfresco area with outdoor kitchen, lap pool, cleverly designed under staircase cellar and a master ensuite bathroom that can only be described as amazing. In the running for the 2014 Master Builder Awards run by the Perth MBA this home is integrated with smart appliances, lighting and bespoke outdoor scupltures and art.
This is my first image in a long time. A result of the realities of work and a period of creative block. More excitingly this is also my first image from the Canon G1-X. Im really excited by the possibilty this camera will provide me. This high end compact from Cannon offers suburb image quality from the largest sensor in it's class. It's a camera that i want to try and keep on me as much as possible to shoot whenever opportunity arises.
From the limited shots i've taken i can say I've been very impressed with the results thus-far. The 14MP camera, features a 4x optical zoom from a very nice lens. Noise from the RAW images is very low even at high ISO's.
This shot in-particular was shot hand-held at 400ISO on a overcast day on the Applecross foreshore south of Perth, Western Australia. I look forward to posting a more comprehensive review of the camera soon, but really happy so far.

The City of South Perth along with Momentum Skate and their valued sponsors such as GMTA skateboards, butter and Modus put on an invitational skate competition of Perths best skateboarders all competing for some great prizes.
To say the show was epic was an understatement. With the cream of Perths skate community all in the one place on a warm March afternoon was proof that the skating community in Perth is a strong and healthy one.
With this series of skate photographs i have created a photoshop action to give them a slightly softer colour palette with a subtle vignette effect to create a aged look. I'm really happy with some the photos grabbed on the day and i will be creating a specific photo gallery for this skate tournament soon so stay tuned. I was keen to get some up ASAP and have chosen the following photographs including the "hero" shot of James Ahern tearing it up!
