Time To Twist A Few Arms

SOME WORDS FROM MY CLIENTS

Hi Julie,

 

The Flinders Ranges workshop I attended in August 2017, I found to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my photographic passion.      

 Your expert experience, guidance and overall commitment to everyone on the course was exceptional. The long hours you put in from early morning to late in the evening were more than anyone expected and were most satisfying.

 I would like to personally thank you for giving me the coaching to further my skills and most of all for giving me the confidence in my own ability.

 thankyou again

I have been pondering the best manner in which to highlight to all and sundry the extraordinary experience on two (thus-far) tours with Julie Fletcher. The difficulty I have is that it would be too easy to throw the words “brilliant”, “extraordinary”, “mind-blowing”, “surprising”, “exhilarating”, “challenging”, “fun” etc. around like cheap confetti at a bogan’s wedding but that just seems so… well just plain understating the experience.

Perhaps rather than those usual platitudes I could look at the outcomes; I am after all an engineer and client capability outcomes are the way we tend to measure project performance. The Flinders Ranges tour in 2016 produced three images I have on my walls at home which (still) solicit a calming smile when I gaze at them. Whatever other words I may use to describe the trip (brilliant, extraordinary, mind-blowing, surprising, exhilarating…) the success for me really rests on those prints hanging on the wall which I have no plans in removing anytime soon. To me this is an extraordinary measure of the tour success in all its dimensions that I just could not state in better terms.

To get to that point required some extraordinary coaching and mentoring – using both a carrot & stick, me not being the cleverest of people so need to be beaten a few times to get the message  by  Julie. By the end of the 5 days I was starting to ‘get it’ and translate my previous tolerable-but-not-competent photographic expertise into the landscape environment. Having thoroughly enjoyed/laughed through the tour and newly upskilled, when it was finished I just wanted to repeat the experience. I would have immediately shouted ‘Hell-Yes’ if Jules said how about we just do it all again.

The recent Red Centre tour just overwhelmed in every respect, so much more than I thought possible. I have some photos being currently mounted and looking forward to them gracing my walls very soon. The shear serenity and ‘awesomeness’ of the experience I hope is conveyed through those images and I anticipate many many calming smiles long into the future as I wander about my house. I simply cant find better words that could possibly describe the experience… well perhaps an almost-equal is a quaint expression from my humble country upbringing used only for extraordinary occasions; that the tour was the “chook’s tit”.

So, would I recommend a Julie Fletcher tour to anyone who has a DSLR and knows where the knobs for ISO, aperture and shutter are… HELL YES!

If you want to get the best out of your photography, learn to see and compose the best images, and want to share in the excitement of capturing the stellar performance of a dark night sky, then this is the tour for you. Sign up for the next one before it's too late! Just to look at the posted images Julie has taken around the Red Centre will tell you what to expect, but in reality your expectations will be exceeded. You may have to work hard for your images, but believe me, it is worth putting as much effort in as you can.  The days are full, but there were plenty of laughs and good times along the way. The added excitement of a sunrise helicopter flight over Uluru and Kata Tjuta was a great way to cap off a brilliant trip.  Julie is a focused and dedicated photographer willing to share her passion with those willing to listen. You will receive the greatest benefit from her knowledge of photography and from her knowledge of the area.  Her tour was beyond awesome. I have come home after 7 days excited about the images I took and know these images deserve something better than remaining on my hard drive. I also come home knowing I have made new friends. Finally, I am looking forward to taking part in another photography journey with Julie in the future.
