Australia - The Shipwreck Coast
Landscape photographers travel the world to spend a week on the Great Ocean Road. The coastline has a westerly vista that lights up on sunset. Even on cloudy afternoons the sun usually finds a gap somewhere in the horizon to burst through. Throw in the rainforests and a few cuddly Koalas and you have a complete adventure for the photographer.
Also check out my feature on shooting along the journe in Volume 37 of Digital Photography, or the November 2013 edition of Toyota Magazine.
An older article on my PFT website was written after spending a few days along the Great Ocean Road with Mark Gray who runs his specialist tours for Landscape Photography. Many photos in this essay were shot with Mark, and others were part of project work for Tourism Victoria.
Ewen Bell's other website is called "Photography for Travellers", an online guide rich in features both practical and philosophical. Field guides to wonderful locations, insights into techniques plus inspiring idea to help you think differently about the art of photography.
Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
