I have to say thank you to the Spirits, Ancestors and Elders of this Ngarigo Country for yesterday…Ski-ing powder at the Golf Course and Funnel Web at Thredbo is the greatest gift anyone could ask for…

I think the song says it all…

(And wow how is Tom Jones?)

To go and grab a copy of todays Weekend Australian Magazine…Go and get one and check out the ‘Heart of The Nation’ section in the rear, it features quirky and unusual shots and today features one of my favorite images that I took of a Snowy Mountains local in his element.

Todays featured shot on ‘Its A Hard Life’ is an incredibly beautiful image from the back country. This photograph was taken just outside Charlotte Pass on a beautiful sunlit afternoon. It has been published in TIME, seen worldwide on the CNN website, exhibited in Sydney and Melbourne and I have sold a number of copies.

This is Mike Bowers and he is the quintessential GoPro!

The shot has been taken on a GoPro system but Mike is also one of the most notable photojournalists that Australia can lay claim to and a Pro in every sense of the word. So much so that even this ski self portrait is perfectly composed!

Mike’s biography is more than impressive…As a photojournalist his development  started out with 14 years in the Press Gallery in Canberra covering five Federal election campaigns and accompanying 3 Prime Ministers on various national and international trips and extended to include tours of duty in conflicts in Cambodia, Kosovo, Bougainville, PNG and The Middle East. He was Pictorial Editor for the Sydney Morning Herald from 2001-2008. Mike was also Chief Photographer for The Sydney Morning Herald before becoming freelance.

Mike is a regular commentator on ABC radio and the host of Talking Pictures on Insiders which airs on ABC 1 and NEWS 24 on Sunday mornings.

He has published 3 books, “Gallipoli Untold Stories, The Big Picture”, “175 Years of The Sydney Morning Herald” and “A Century of Pictures, 100 years of Herald Photography”. He is in the Final stages of his fourth book, “Armageddon, Trouble On A Faded ANZAC Trail” a joint venture with journalist Paul Daley.

So while the GoPro system is easily accessible to most consumers today it takes a master of their art to create a shot as well balanced as this one….Nice to see Mike GoPro!
