Fremantle Photo Trek
What an epic photo trek it was on Sunday afternoon!
We had more than 50 photographers turn up to our inaugural Venture Photography Workshops Photo Trek to participate in a photography walk that took us from the Fremantle Arts Centre to the entrance to the Harbour. We shot everything from heritage architecture to grungy street scenes to street art and graffiti to dramatic scenes of the sun setting over the Indian Ocean. We were also lucky to be admitted to the balcony of the WA Maritime Museum to shoot the light overlooking the harbour.
What I enjoy about photo walking (or photo trekking in this case as it was a very long route) is the social aspect as well as the idea of using photography as a “head clearing” exercise. We often get so caught up in our work that it’s refreshing to be able to just relax and respond to the visual stimuli in our environment with our cameras. And once we started looking, we found many excellent subjects, from an old Fairmont which had been converted to a hearse, to colourful leaves in a puddle to an old sign swinging in the wind.
Thanks to everyone who attended and participated, and remember to use the hashtag #phototrek so that we can all view your images across social media websites!
Here are photographs that I took during the Photo Trek.
