The Unemployed Coal Miner

Unemployed Coal Miner

An unemployed coal miner smoking a cigarette in front of his home in the west coast of Tasmania, which is often referred to as the “Wild West.” Tasmania is one of the highlights of my photography career. I was honored to be part of a group of 17 internationally renowned photographers Adobe sent to the end of the world, literally, to the remote Australian island. It was on this mission that I first met Bruce Dale, our guest on TWiT Photo today, and witnessed his artistic and technical brilliance. Bruce has photographed in more than 75 countries for National Geographic – check out his work on http://www.brucedale.com. Tune in to TWiT Photo live today at 1 p.m. PST.

  1. It’s far to easy to a portrait is “perfect” but I think this one is about as close as it gets. The tone, processing, feeling, and composition are spot on. Big fan of your work and look forward to see you on Twit Photo every week.

    • Thank you for your kind words! This is one of my favorite shots from my trip in Tasmania. I’m enjoying TWiT Photo and so glad to find other photographers such as you who enjoy it as much as I do :)
