Going Global

I spent a little time recently researching sales data (made available by www.appfigures.com) and was surprised to discover that Melbourne Photo Travel Guide has been sold in iTunes stores around the globe and on most continents since it's release in August this year.

As the map shows, the app has been sold in the US, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, China, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, France, Germany, Norway, United Kingdom and of course Australia.  Currently the App is in the Top 100 iPad Travel Apps in Australia, China and Argentina and Top 300 in Brazil.

The response to the app and the feedback received has been fantastic. A big thankyou to all those that have made contact using the comments section directly from within the app or have taken the time to email me.

The current version of the app v1.1 includes native support for iPad users and provides full screen images. A single purchase allows you to install the app onto both your iPhone and iPad. The advantage of this is that you can plan your next photo trip to Melbourne on the iPad at home while having the app on the iPhone and handy when you hit the streets.

Work is currently underway on a new batch of entries along with more great images of Melbourne in preparation for the next update.

Historic Kiosk is a reminder of summers past

An icon of St Kilda beach and the surrounding area is the historic St Kilda Pier Kiosk. Originally known as Parer's Pavilion, the kiosk was built in 1904. Following a fire that destroyed the original kiosk in September 2003, the current kiosk was rebuilt using the original plans and with the help of features such as the iron lacework that survived the fire, an accurate reconstruction re-opened in March 2006.

The foreshore provides vantage points from either side of the pier down towards the kiosk. Walking down the pier, you’ll find a couple of shelters, which offer some great opportunities to frame your shots in interesting ways. At the end of the pier is the kiosk, which is lit until after closing time.

Hints & tips - Take a tripod for low light photography and multiple exposure (HDR) shooting. Sun hat and sunscreen is a must.

Melbourne's Newest Park


'Angel' by Deborah Halpern overlooks the Yarra River

Birrarung Marr is Melbourne’s newest contemporary park and is located along the north bank of the Yarra River between Federation Square and the Sporting precinct. The name comes from the language of the original inhabitants to this area, the Wurundjeri people - Birrarung means ‘river of mist’ and Marr refers to the side of the river.

As you wander the length of the park you will find works of art such as Deborah Halpern’s ‘Angel’ sculpture, the Federation Bells installation, rolling green hills and contemporary architecture, which includes the William Barak Bridge with its integrated lighting design.

The park offers extensive views of Federation Square, the Arts Centre spire and the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Hints & tips – This is a great location to photograph the city skyline and the lights of the city.
