Landscape Photography and the Art of Listening

On October 28th, I did a Pecha Kucha talk here in Broome, and I just thought I’d share it here on RB for those who may have come to see it were they not so far away :) :) :) The format of Pecha Kucha is 20 slides / 20secs per slide = 6min40secs. Short and sweet!

A huge “thank you!!!” to everyone who came, to Allison Stout who organised the event, to Graeme for recording the presentations and to Gary for being the photographer on the night!

Although the timing got mucked up a bit in the online version, you can click here to listen to me reading my ‘poem’ and view the actual presentation

Landscape Photography and the Art of Listening.


My name is Mieke Boynton, and I’m a Landscape Photographer.

The land is never silent.
Never empty.
It is alive and it speaks…

Fagus Week 2014

Hi all!
Just a super-quick note to remind people that “Fagus Week” – our RedBubbler week of fun, friendship and photography at Cradle Mountain in Tasmania is on again in April. This will be the fifth Fagus Week for the fabulous Tinnieopener, the delightful ClaireBear and intrepid explorer Rob Mullner

I had so much fun last year … and I’m thrilled that most of the regular RedBubble “family” are returning again… but I’m equally excited that we’ll be joined by Bubblers from as far afield as the Cocos (Keeling) Islands… and the USA!!

We’ll of course be hoping that Tinnie has timed it right for the “Turning of the Fagus” when the native deciduous beech tree (the Fagus) changes colour from green to yellow to oran…

Utterly Unforgettable: Fagus Week 2013!

I’m finally back in the Kimberley… warm, dry, and totally inspired!

I don’t even know where to start with describing the wonderful time I had in Tasmania… I guess I’ll start by saying a MASSIVE “Thank you!!!” to Mark and Claire Walsh (aka Tinnieopener and ClaireBear) for organising the most fantastic week, and for whatever secret whispers they had with the Fagus to ensure that we were there at EXACTLY the right time!! (Their secret whispers didn’t work so well with the weather, unfortunately… but we’ll forgive them for that!!)

Basically, Bubblers from all over Australia journeyed to Cradle Mountain in Tasmania to enjoy each others’ company, share ideas, discuss photography (and RB) and take photos of this amazing area. Spec…

Fagus Week: I'm on a mission!

In 27 sleeps, I get on a plane to Tassie for the very exciting Fagus Week Workshop near Cradle Mountain. I have been slowly getting myself organised… shopping online for thermals (none for sale up here!!!), toying with the idea of buying a new lens (no one seems to have it in stock though), daydreaming about the awesome scenery I’m going to see, and, of course, getting very excited about meeting fellow Bubblers whose work I have been admiring since I first joined this website in 2009!!

On Tuesday evening, I bumped into a friend of mine down at the beach. She was running… I had my camera in hand. We both agreed that we should probably occasionally do what the other was doing. So on Wednesday evening, I left the camera at home and headed to the beach with Banjo for a jog.

I'm going on a Tassie adventure... Wanna come?

I’ve never been to Tasmania.

I’ve drooled over Mark’s Cradle Mountain photos for years now…
I’ve marvelled at ClaireBear’s diverse and beautiful scenics from the region
I’ve favourited too many of Robert Mullner’s Tassie photos to count…
I’ve felt myself turn slightly (or not so slightly) green whilst perusing David Murphy’s stunning Tassie collection
and I’ve been mesmerised by the glorious colours captured in Garth Smith’s depictions of the famous mountain range and its lake…

Well, enough’s enough, I say!
I’m going!!
The above team are already gearing up for the Fagus Week 2013, and come what may, April 21st – 28th 2013 will see me joining this wonderful group of photographers …

One Year On...

Sometimes there’s cause for a small celebration of a milestone, and sometimes it’s nice to celebrate with some friends instead of in your own head…

…so I’d like to share with you that today it’s one whole year since the opening of my Exhibition at Indulgence Cafe in Derby!

It was only supposed to be a three-month exhibition, but somewhere along the line, the owners changed their minds and decided that they were happy to continue the Exhibition indefinitely. Which actually means that I now have a gallery of approximately 20 RB prints hanging in a busy and spacious cafe!

It’s an opportunity to thank the Indulgence team (especially Annalisa and Jodie), and RB for making this possible in a practical way…

…but mostly, I’d like to than…

"Landscape and Light" - an exhibition of beautiful RedBubble works (aka SoJie16!)

   Join me at Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I’m thrilled to have three of my photos nominated for this virtual exhibition… and I’m also thrilled that all the artists who translated three of my photos into other artforms have been similarly honoured! Congratulations ladies!! What a buzzing place that workshop has been! If you want to be inspired to pick up a paintbrush or some pastels or give digital painting a go…. or you’re just curious to see how a Virtual Workshop functions, click here.
I HIGHLY recommend it!!
I thought that was exciting enough, but there’s more to come! The Workshop was a lead-up to this SoJie 16 Exhibition, and you can see many of the finished artworks (along with many other amazing pieces of art…

Australian Geographic... Yay!

I just received an email from a friend alerting me to the fact that my Epson Pano results managed to get me into the Australian Geographic Mag (online) under the title “Best Panoramic Photos of 2012”!

I’m so excited!

Click here to see the page with my photo of ‘The Pinnacles’

And click here to see the page with my photo of ‘Perth City Skyline’

And if that wasn’t exciting enough, I’ve also been nominated in the Black and White Spider Awards this year! They’ll be announcing which photo was nominated at 4am on Sunday (WA time) but I’ll be camping, so I’ll probably find out on Sunday night.

Thanks to all of you who show such overwhelming support for my photography.

I live a long way out woop woop, and my daily interact…

Accepted into 1X (One Exposure)... YAY!!!

I think most photographers know about the 1X Website … you may have (like me) perused the website in wonder and awe and gained a new respect for photographers like Mel Brackstone who has HEAPS of photos on there… or possibly (also like me) submitted several of your best and then, over time, despaired of ever getting a photo accepted, and then, quite possibly, despaired of ever achieving that kind of photography… (my experience again)

Well, I FINALLY GOT ONE IN!!!!!!!!!!!!

So much amazing stuff has happened to me this year… but this is absolutely the icing on the cake. I don’t think my year could be better. I’m absolutely over the moon!!

So… I’m guessing you’re wondering which one? (Unless you’re secretly hating me right now beca…
