    I have been to two of Brett?s photography workshops and each time have come away with new ideas. His ?Golden Light? session was held at Cornelian Bay beach at a perfect time of the day where you couldn?t help but take gorgeous photos. Brett is very skilled both as a teacher and a professional photographer. He makes his sessions entertaining and shares his teaching time equally with everyone in the group. I am looking forward to Brett's next workshop. I strongly recommend Brett's sessions.

    This was a great event. It gave me a basic understanding of my camera settings so that I can start to play around with my camera with a bit of an idea of what I need to be doing! Very worthwhile for anyone who has bought a camera and is confused about all the different terminology. Susie was also very down to earth and explained things in a way that was practical and easy to understand.

    I'm Brett, a Scottish photography lecturer now living in Tasmania.
    I've been a photographer since university, when I studied ecology and later human ecology. My love of the form has propelled me to travel and live in several locations in the world.

    Brett Meikle is available for private bookings

    I am available Saturday afternoons and on Sunday and by arrangement during the week.
    My skills lie in landscape (city and country) and night sky (rather than astro).

    Title or Location: Big Roaring Beach near Dover, Tasmania
    Big Roaring beach is one of my favourite spots down South. I very often come here for walks, (cold water) swimming. I adore the untamed, wild nature of this beach. There's always so much beauty to capture here. From sunrises and sunsets to textures and wild life including these resident seagulls. In this photo I loved how the birds aligned with the waves and the sky all in similar tones with their red legs giving the photo a bit of a pop of colour. Camera used CANON 600D ISO 200 F5.6 1/2000s

    I went down to the Hobart Waterfront on 3 March 2024 to catch a nice sunrise but the sky was rather ominous and not what I was expecting. This appearance lasted about 3 seconds and I was lucky to catch the colours.

    Title or Location: Breaking Dawn in Hobart (taken in Knocklofty, West Hobart)
    Captured at Knocklofty Reserve just moments before sunrise, this photo was meant to offer a blend of natural and urban beauty. Positioned to overlook Ross Bay, the vantage point provided a bird's eye view of the landscape below. As the sun was about to emerge, the sky transformed into a canvas of warm orange and pink shades fading into purple and blue hues. Against this celestial backdrop, the city lights of Hobart still twinkled, illuminating the cityscape, including the Tasman Bridge. With my

    Title or Location: Murray St, Hobart
    Been taking photographs as a hobby for about 12 months now, mostly urban landscapes and architecture. Love this corner in the twilight (have a few iterations of this scene - seem to revisit it every few months). Tested the new (second -hand) 16mm f1.4 for a different perspective. Limited editing in Darktable. Like the exaggerated perspective of this shot, and the colours of course...Fujifilm X-T1, Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN 1/6s f9.0 16mm ISO400

    Title or Location: Cornelian Bay, Hobart
    I've always loved the way Hobart lights up for various events, and being a member of the LTBTQIA community myself, having the bridge lit up for this year's Tas Pride stood out particularly. I had taken a photo from this position last year during Dark Mofo when the bridge was lit up red, and decided then that it was probably one of my favourite angles of the bridge, so on this night I went out and took several photos from various positions. When I arrived at Cornelian Bay, there was a young

    Title or Location: Vancouver Lake, Vancouver, WA
    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha

    Title or Location: Royal International Air Tattoo, Fairford, Gloucestershire
    I started taking my son to RIAT in 2008 when he was just six years old. He had to follow Dad, and would be seen armed with my old Canon 350D. I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Title or Location: Near Duluth, Minnesota, USA
    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
