Graham Fenwick visits Shark Park with BluepixelPhoto
Graham is a waterman in the true sense of the word. He has spent more time in the Ocean than most people spend in an office and is an accomplished Spearfisheman and surfer. No stranger to Underwater Photography, his pictures have featured in and on the covers of many local and international magazines. Why then the workshop with Blue Pixel?
In his own words
“I spent a late afternoon and a day out at sea with Allen Walker of BluePixel. I really appreciate the systematic approach Allen takes to getting his pictures and his approach to sharing his knowledge is exemplary. More pictures for the bin than for the wall but my photography progressed beyond my expectation. Regardless of ones experience, there is always so much more to learn. Underwater photography is certainly a journey with no definitive destination in sight. With all the details in good hands and all the bases covered, I could just relax, focus on my photography and absorb what has to be a truly magnificent life event.
If I was to give anyone advice it would be to acknowledge that what is critical in these situations is that you know very little. There are people who have spent thousands of hours figuring it out. You know your home setup like the back of your hand but you don’t know your neighbours. If you don’t have the years to go and learn the lessons from scratch, go with a professional.”
In Summary, Graham is experienced enough to recognise the value of local knowledge. He understood that this knowledge would get him in the most favourable position to ge the pictures he wanted safely. He also wanted to refine his approach to any given potential photo opportunity and develop a more systematic and calculated approach to realising the picture he was looking for. Would he recommend Bluepixel to his friends?
“Don’t be silly, of course there is no other way to go!”
