Great timelapse – shooting an iPhone for a Macworld cover

Just stumbled over this great timelapse by US photographer Peter Belanger and thought I’d give you a look.  It shows Peter shooting an iPhone Macworld cover on a view camera with a Phase One digital back.  Not only is this a great idea of the effort and skill that goes into something that seems like it would be simple but it is also a fantastic and well thought out timelapse showing from start to finish of the production of a magazine cover.  Enjoy more of Peter’s great work at his blog here

My 18th Townsville Crocodiles poster in a row (Wow, I really am getting old!)

I’ve just managed to get hold of the latest Townsville Crocodiles team poster.  I shot this months ago but haven’t seen the results until now.  Maybe it’s a sign that I’m getting old but I can’t believe that this is the 18th poster I have shot for the Crocodiles.  I took the first official photos of the team (then called the Townsville Suns) when they entered the NBL competition way back in 1993.  Since then I have literally shot hundreds of thousands of frames of them doing everything and anything and have always been their exclusive team photographer.

I’ve seen plenty of players, coaches and front-office staff come and go in that time but one thing has ALWAYS remained constant.  You couldn’t work with a nicer bunch of people.

Anyway, let me know what you think or if you have any questions feel free to post in the comments.  Also, props to Katrina at Townprint for the graphic design on this poster, nice work!

The Townsville Crocs pose with their sponsors

It was that time of year again last night for sponsors of the Townsville Crocodiles to get together with their team for seaside drinks, canapes and to be part of their own unique team photos.

I have been shooting for the Townsville Crocodiles for 16 years and in that time have seen many, many players, coaches and administrators come and go but one thing remains the same.  Unlike many other professional sporting teams, these guys are always friendly and easy to get along with.  Yes, the NBL is struggling and basketball is going through a rough phase in Australia but if its survival hinged solely on the attitudes and professionalism of the players then it would be a runaway success!

Here’s a quick look at the 2009-2010 team on location yesterday.

My local angle on Kevin Rudd’s Emissions Trading Scheme

Yesterday I was sent out to Queensland Nickel’s Yabulu refinery to provide a pic to go along with a story about the new Emissions Trading Scheme introduced to parliament yesterday.  The Australian newspaper ran the pic on page 5 today along with Natasha Bita’s story.
