A new commission

I was recently asked to provide a number of images for a house on Waimanalo Beach, including four large triptyches (an image split across three separate prints) done on thin mounts, and a large canvas. The canvas was a 30″ x 45″ of the Makapuu Panorama, and the triptyches were two large ones (3 prints of 16″ x 24″, for a total image size of 48″ x 24″) of From Here To Eternity 2 and Poipu Morning, and then two slightly smaller ones (3 prints of 12″ x 18″, for a total image size of “36” x 18″) of Koko Head and Keiki Beach Tidepools. Here’s a couple of images of the pictures in place:

Ocean Moments ‘Turtle Symmetry’ image on show

The Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union, of which I am an affiliated member through the Isle of Man Photographic Society, has an annual print exhibition which tours the Northwest of the UK. ‘Turtle Symmetry’ was selected from among thousands of entries to be included in the 150 images in the 2011 exhibition. You can see it appear at 1:17 in this video!

Ocean Moments does well in competition in Great Britain!

As I’m originally from the Isle of Man, Great Britain, and still have family there, I’m a member of the Isle of Man Photographic Society. The IOMPS is affiliated to the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union, a group of almost 100 photographic clubs in the UK, with a total membership of just under 4000 photographers. The L&CPU hold an annual competition, for which the affiliated clubs put forward their members’ best shots. ‘Ta’ape’, my shot of a shoal of blue-lined snapper, was awarded a certificate of merit in the natural history prints section, meaning it was considered to be among the best 13 shots submitted – very pleasing!  The image was also retained by the L&CPU for the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain’s 2011 print competition, which is a real honour. The L&CPU submitted just 14 images, including ‘Ta’ape’, which helped them to a fourth place out of the 15 Unions entered. Happily, this was also reported in the Isle of man Courier on the 22nd of September 2011.

Up and Running

So, after taking some time to get some of my best images together, and with the help of Dan Lareau who did all the hard design and programming work, the Ocean Moments site is now up and running!

I’m really pleased with the site, and think it does a great job of showcasing the images. Hopefully, everyone else will agree, such that it might even generate some interest from people in buying one or two! In the meantime, though, please have a look and comment if you see ones you like.

Thanks for visiting, Rob
