Bangalley Headland Site Now Added

It is my pleasure to announce a new photo guide for Bangalley Headland. What excites me about this photo guide is that it is the first one that is written by somebody else. They managed to work out how to use my documentation and create their own guide.

I have had the pleasure of shooting with Tim Donnelly on a number of occasions, you can check out his Flickr site here. Tim is a real devotee of the dawn seascapes. He recently took me on an outing to this remote location that he discovered and I had a most enjoyable morning shooting on this remote rock ledge. I would urge readers to pay heed to Tim's warnings though, I saw him walking along the rock ledge in pre-dawn light and he stepped into a hole that submerged him up to his waist!!!

So check out the Photo Guide to Bangalley Headland, near North Narrabeen on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

Ivo Rowe Pool in Coogee Now Added

I just wrote up a guide for a much more obscure coastal location. It's probably the lesser known of Coogee's 4 pools. The Ivo Rowe Pool in South Coogee.

Great for those interested in more minimalist seascape photography or night photography.

Check out the guide to Ivo Rowe Pool.

Forresters Beach Added

I have written a guide to without a doubt the best seaside landscape location anywhere around Sydney or the Central Coast.... Forresters Beach.

Take a few minutes to check out the amazing scenery at Forresters Beach... you will be amazed at what you can find in this little known location

3 Northern Beaches Guides Released

Here are the first three guides that I have produced. Probably 3 of my favorite local beach locations;
  1. Turimetta - A photography Mecca with incredible rock formations
  2. North Narrabeen Tidal Pool - A gorgeous pool with a unique walkway
  3. Mona Vale Pool - Another really uniqe pool that turns into an island at high tide
Please visit these guides, leave your comments and tell me what you think. I have tried to incorporate every bit of information that I think a photographer would ever need to know about a new location.


Created Network Structure

I have established the three tier hierarchy for this project now.

At the lowest level you have the individual postings themselves. At this point in time I have written 4 (Turimetta, Mona Vale, North Narrabeen pool & Forresters Beach)

These role up through a State Level site (in this case it's this site... Australia-NSW).

The states role up to a Country Level site (here's the link to the Australian site)

And the Australian site allows you to navigate up the global site http://freephotoguides.blogspot.com

I have started spreading word of this project in a limited manner to see if I can get some other photographers to start writing guides for it. I would like to hammer out all the kinks before taking the project out to the wider world.
