This year I was able to take a group from all over Australia to attend the Vivid Light Show in Sydney. This was a photographic workshop that I ran there.This was nothing short as awesome and uplifting. Yes there were crowds there but if you accept that and go with the right mind set it is such an uplifting free event for people.

What I love about this event is the creativity of people that shines through. We live in a wonderful world but sadly it is the negative aspects of the world that are highlighted in the press all the time which makes us   develop this notion that its all around us is bad and awful and nothing could be further from the truth.

When you think about it, with 7 billion on the planet, there are bound to be some that are not so good but in the bigger picture they are the minority.

What I love about Vivid is that it demonstrates the good in people , it show cases the creativity of people and it is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy an event, to immerse yourself in color and also provides amazing photographic opportunities.

What follows below is a small snap shot of what I took there while with my guests. If this has been on your bucket list make sure you get there as it is something that you wont forget.

As I mentioned before, yes there are many people there but remember this is over 3 weeks in winter.Will it rain, off course it will, it is winter but go with a poncho or raincoat and you’ll still have a wonderful time.

The good thing is that when it rains, there are less people there and you ‘ll have more room to move. I was there on the long weekend with my crew and on the Sunday night there were so many people there but did it stop us from having a wonderful time no, did it stop us from taking awesome pictures, no!!!

Vivid is emotive, inspiring and simply a showcase of the wonder of light and the creativity in people.  Pete:)

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.
