Come and join us in beautiful Cradle Mountain, Tasmania!

I’m starting to get excited… The count-down to “Focus on the Fagus Week” in Tasmania has begun!

What is Fagus Week?? Well, if you click here you can read more about it, but in a nut-shell, it’s where you can hang out with some super-talented and very fun photographers, see some incredible Aussie alpine scenery during the “Turning of the Fagus”, participate in some informal workshop sessions and take some fantastic photos! If this sounds like your idea of a good time, then you should join us!

I’m looking forward to catching up with “the regulars” again either up the mountain or down by the fire in “The Tav”… and I’m looking forward to meeting “the first-timers” too!

When? April 26th – May 3rd 2…

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…

...and a delightful day was had by all!!

Yesterday (well, actually, it’s now after 4am so technically it’s the day before yesterday… but who needs to be technical??) our merry group of Melbourne Bubblers wandered around the city with cameras in hand and spent a truly delightful day chatting to each other, learning from each other, laughing with each other and – of course – taking photographs of this fine city and its people.

The day began with coffee at Brunetti’s on Swanston Street, where John Holding had been waiting for some time after getting up at some un-Godly hour to brave a chilly and overcast dawn. We were soon joined by David Hibberd (Davo), Leanne Robson and her son Colin, and Christine Wilson.

Our first “walk-through” was Cathedral Arcade but due to the fact that there …

Calling all Melburnian Photographers!!

I’m going to be in Melbourne on Saturday January 4th and I thought it might be nice to meet some Bubblers and get some shots of Australia’s best city! (I can’t help being biased… I haven’t lived in any other Aussie cities!)

So I have a rough plan… there is still a bit of fine-tuning to do, but here are the basics:

1) 8am – 8:45am Coffee at Brunetti’s on Swanston St
? Cathedral Arcade , Swanston Street (depending on time and interest)
2) 9am – 9:20am Degraves Street, off Flinders Lane
3) 10:00am – 11:20am National Gallery of Victoria: 180 St Kilda Road – Edward Steichen & Art Deco Fashion Exhibition (Tickets cost $12)
4) 11:45am – 12:45pm RedBubble HQ: Suite 1, Level 3, 180 Flinders Street
? Hosier Lane (depending on time…

Are there any APS Members in Perth next weekend?

Hi Bubblers of WA,

I’m going to be in Perth next weekend, and the WA Rep for the Australian Photographic Society (APS for short – here’s their website) has organised a meet-up (for coffee) at Kings Park on Sunday the 4th at 10am.

I just thought I’d pass on the message… if there are any WA photographers in and around Perth who are involved in the APS or have thought about joining, it’d be terrific to see you there!

Mieke.

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 …
