On May 9th 2015 amongst the flurry of the first unearthed event held in Pemberton, a small group of enthusiastic photographers, from the Pemberton and Manjimup Photography clubs, attended a workshop with renowned artist Tony Windberg, at the Gloucester Motel.
The event started with some slides, replicating our theme of still life. And after some valuable information were we rewarded with some beautiful plates, supplied by the amazing chefs and kitchen hands employed by our host setting.
With dappled light projected from the large external windows and several reflectors we were able to create the mood of the dishes through our ever clicking cameras. Many photos were created and seeing the spectrum of these continues to amaze. Highly commended would have to go to, and I’m sure we all agree, our youngest member who attracts many compliments in her ability to surprise.
After setting our cameras aside, we were then able to taste the wears of our shot, all of which tasted as good as they looked. Along with these tasting we were supplied with a healthy morning tea and lunch, into which we were hardly able to make a dint.
After leaving the Gloucester we ventured down Stirling Road and across Channybearup Road to Old Vasse Rd and into Hawke Road, stopping on the way for more instruction from Tony.
Having reached Hawke Road we then visited Kevin Fitzpatrick and “Jepp” Puntip Binsirawanit “Bamboo Springs” extraordinary farm, consisting of over 100 species of bamboo, nut trees, chickens, pigs, exotic fruit trees and vines and many herbs. A delight to be hold. A photographers dream.
All in all the day was filled with tit bits of food and farm and enjoyed by all. Thank you to all involved in allowing us to spread our wings and to be continually creative. Special thanks to Tony Windberg for his patient guidance and expert instruction.
