Colin Helped Me Capture Some Amazing Images Of Brisbane
Basu Gosh lives in Woodland Hills, California. During his overseas trips Basu likes to use the services of a One On One Photography Mentor to provide him with local information on photography locations during his trips.
In January 2014 I was lucky enough for Basu to chose me during his visit to Brisbane.
This is what he had to say.
"In the past couple of years while traveling to various parts of the world, it has been a common practice for me to hire a local photographer to help me capture iconic images of the area I’m visiting.
A secondary (almost equally important) benefit to this practice is rubbing elbow with professional photographers and learn trick or two from each of these photographers.
I have done this about half a dozen times while traveling in the US National Parks, Paris and Australia. I have found this to be not only a great way to capture great images of the area, but also a great learning tool.
Last month (January, 2014) I traveled along the Eastern coast of Australia from Sydney to Port Douglas.
During this three week trip I hired a photographer guide in Sydney, Brisbane and Port Douglas (Great Barrier Reef).
I had only one evening for Brisbane.
Colin met me at my hotel and we did a photo walk all around Brisbane mostly along the river to capture images of Brisbane until about 9:00 PM.
Colin not only helped me capture some amazing images of Brisbane but even more importantly learned a lot by way of use of filters, something I have very little experience in using.
I found Colin extremely knowledgeable but even more importantly he enjoys sharing his knowledge of photography.
Having used professional photographers for such an assignment, I have very good basis to compare and assess.
Colin is definitely one of the most knowledgeable photographers I have hired and also most enjoyable experience in learning from him.
