Stormlight Publishing 25 years of South West Postcards, tells the story of starting out with one camera and one lens and going on to publishing 1.5 million postcards later. Hardcover with 70 images. Copies available online.
Two images made within an hour show vastly different light. This image of Surf, Rabbit Hill, Yallingup, was published in 1992 and became a hugely successful postcard. It was made with a short zoom lens but still required some cropping in the final drum scan for colour separations (before photoshop!).
This image was made in 2012 to replace an older version I had decided to retire. The retired image was made in 1997. It first appeared as a postcard and published tens of thousands of times. It has also appeared in magazines and books.

I included this surfing image in my latest update and printing of my Leeuwin Naturaliste postcard series, which will be available shortly. It has come as a bit of a shock, but next year, 2013, will be the 25th year I have been producing this series of cards that have showcased the coastline between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin and the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park.
