Blazing the trail in America | Australian Photography Tours and Workshops

Earlier I mentioned about spending the entire day at Spider Rock and I decided to pick out a few pictures to show you the changing moods of the day. I want you to note where the shadow is from Spider Rock and that will give you an indication of the day. Left of the picture is taken in the morning light and the far right is late afternoon light. There are so many more pics that are totally different that I could have displayed here you but space doesn’t allow me.So many elements came together on that day and it was a day that Ill never forget and sitting in the one place meant also I could take time out to reflect on life, people that I know, the direction that I want to head in life and even the uncertainties that face me.I hope this little series of pics will inspire you to do the same, to pick a spot that you like, take your camera and wait and keep on waiting and you never know what might happen:)

Pete's photography is self taught. As a young child photography was an interest. His passion for the varying landscapes of Oz comes from frequent visits as a youngster, to his Gandparent's sheep farm in Barmera, a small country town in South Australia. Pete Dobré is a Freelance Photographer who blazes the trail for 6 months each year, capturing awe-inspiring images. Pete's work expresses his creative flair, emotions and love for the natural scapes of Australia. He remembers the hot day when he was 8, leaving town for the farm. His parents had an old car. Within about 2 kilometres of reaching the farm gate, they were bogged on a small red sand dune. The flies were buzzing continuously and the heat was beating down. Sticks, leaves and branches were wedged under the back tyres, to get the car moving. His mum was in a panic but Pete thought that it was exciting. From that moment he knew that he loved being out in creation, with the sense of adventure in the wild. This is where Pete's passion began. Photography for Pete is an expressive means for visual communication. He says, 'There is never a boring moment in my work. There is always something to photograph and I love being creative. The only limit to creativity is a lack of creativity.' Pete's aim as a photographer is to present images that provoke and stimulate the mind, to capture God's awesome creation and to share this with others. If Pete can do a little justice to God's creativity, then he is quietly satisfied. As a photographer Pete's inspiration and passion for his work comes from knowing God who created everything in the beginning. Knowing God, the Creator gives more substance and meaning to what he captures on film. Pete sees his role as freezing a moment in time and history which will never be repeated exactly the same again. The light, clouds and seasons will always be different. Pete's love for natural conditions at different times of the day, displaying varying moods and cloud formations makes his work very special and eye catching.
