Photo Description

Squids Ink Jetty, Belmont, Newcastle NSW.

When I first moved to Newcastle back in 2018, one of the locations I had researched for landscape photography was this little jetty modestly reaching out over Lake Macquarie. I quickly realised it to be a very popular spot with photographers and, as such I didn’t want to photograph it. It is a beautiful location and I love shooting new spots, but if I feel a place has been over-photographed or I have no fascination towards it then I’ll generally stay away from it.

After a few years I had noticed that no one ever seemed to photograph it on sunrise – probably because it faces the opposite direction to where the sun rises. This was just what I needed to inspire me to venture there!

After studying the forecast one evening, I noticed a thick band of cloud coming across from the West overnight and potentially coinciding perfectly with the sunrise. I was keen to get out and shoot again, so at 5am the next morning I ventured down and waited for the magic to happen. After a nervous hour of waiting here, the colours from the rising sun finally began stretching across the sky and gave me the photograph I had envisioned.

Product Materials Used

Paper Types Used

Lustre paper - This is like a blend between matt and glossy paper and is one of the highest quality papers within the printing industry. It has a beautiful look to it and the feel of a professional, high quality print.

Metallic paper - Metallic paper adds a unique flair to your photographs. A high contrast "chrome on paper" look, metallic paper adds extreme vibrancy to colours, giving your image greater details and depth.

Canvas Prints

We only use the highest grade, fade resistant HD pigment inks and premium quality 400gsm, museum grade, tight weave Hahnemühle archival canvas. Every canvas print is also coated with a non-cracking UV protective coating.

The canvas is then stretched around an eco friendly, kiln dried wooden frame and finished with professional framers tape and hanging wire.

All canvas prints are also printed at a super high resolution (2880 dpi) using EPSONS ULTRACHROME HDx technology, giving amazing clarity and ultra vivid colours!
