Computer – 2 months old – Down Again

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, January 2, 2009

I was [was being the operative word!] right on schedule to post some pics of Kristy & Joe’s wedding – but 30th December my new photo processing computer’s raid decided to fall apart.  By the look of it the main hard-drive has hit the dust.  Fortunately all the photos and associated work is safe from both the Raid Mirror drive and my other back-ups.  Unfortunately I’m not skilled enough to deal with that issue so Monday it goes in for some work and probably another hard drive.  Just unlucky, I guess, to have a drive fail so early.

Come back Sunday for some Christmas day photos and a little surprise for my daughters who are currently globe trotting in the northern hemisphere.  And the wedding pics will appear within a day of me getting it back – hopefully before the week is out!

Where Have All The Blog Posts Gone,….

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 6, 2008

For more than 2 years I blogged 2 or 3 times per week.  Then through the months of October and November it all stopped.  Not deliberately.  Just got hugely busy between post processing, a couple of weddings, framing photos – that is one task I am about to totally outsource [takes me far too long as I am doing it all manually], and second shooting for Chris Brown of Small Package Photography.  Really enjoying the second shooting; fabulous experience – but that’s a story in itself for the future.

Anyway, now I have a massive amount to blog about.  Not going to catch up overnight,… nor in a couple of weeks.  Some fabulous shoots to show – Joondalup Resort, El Caballo Blanco, Sandalford Winery.

But tonight no pic – now that’s a first,… a photography blog with no photography.  Come back tomorrow and I will have some pics starting to roll through.  And between now and the end of 2008 I shall endeavour to blog 3 or 4 times per week.

And hopefully as we move toward Christmas I can inspire you to get our your camera and make more memorable photos.

Sonific Songspot added

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, July 19, 2007

Came across a new widget for the blog – Sonific Songspot. Looks a likely candidate to put some different music up.

So we’ll try to keep up with some different music that you can activate and listen to while looking at the pics.

Check it out – first song is What Are You Waiting For by Camille Miller.

So. What ARE you waiting for – press play and then read down and view the photos.

BlackBilled Waterbird

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, November 17, 2006

September in Brisbane Phil Dixon and I went for a 2 hour walk with the cameras. I took this bird late in the day – no idea what it’s name is but it’s definitely blackbilled and a wader! Doh! That’s obvious. Whatever,… this guy was sunning himself in the last of the sunshine. Suggestions of an identification please make a comment.

Anyway I hadn’t got to any of the shots I took on the walk so after attending a Med Dedication Ceremony today I decided it was time to do one up before throwing myself into a weekend of catching up on a back log of pups, people and a couple of albums.
Wading waterbird called ???

Max – The Aristocratic Pup

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, October 13, 2006

You may have seen the pics of Max & Mya back in September – couple of 16 week old German Shepherd pups. Well was finishing off some of them tonight and decided a bit of a push and a vintage look was the go. Max is so poised it just suits. Tomorrow I will have up some great photos of a brief shoot with Em. She’s a really character and it really shows in the results. Check it out again in 12 hours or so. For now here’s Max.
