Interview by Leigh-Anne @ What's on in Wollongong

South Coast local Ryan North took out the award for Photography in the 3rd Annual Wollongong RAWards earlier this year.

Looking at Ryan's extraordinary images it is hard to believe he is only 16 years old. Ryan took some time out to answer some questions about his photography and to give us an insight into his passions.

Remember this name people - Ryan is on his way to big things!

Tell us a little bit about yourself
I’m a 16 year old keen adventurer and artist. I love to surf and enjoy the water in every way. I’m always driven to learn and discover new things – whether that be academic or discovering new places and new experiences. My passion for photography comes from my love and respect of nature.

How do you keep yourself motivated and your photography fresh?
It’s a good feeling to discover new things (or moments) that no-one could have found before, and I am always keen to search for those moments. It’s not hard to be motivated! 

Favourite two photos you have taken recently?
Green Cascade, Coastal Fog 

Do you specialise?
I don't aim to specialise in any particular subject, but the ocean always take my eye.

Who or what inspires you in your personal life and work?
Chris Burkard is definitely a strong inspiration to me, his lifestyle seems very inviting. Surfing, shooting, adventuring and getting paid for it! Other than the great surf/adventure photographers, nature itself inspires me to learn more and more about the world, and beyond.

What’s the best part of being a photographer?
The best part of being a photographer is seeing things that no-one else can see. You are instinctively trained to look at the beauty in nature, even when your camera is packed away.

How long have you been a photographer?
I bought my DSLR 2 years ago and haven’t stopped photographing since!

The hardest part of your job?
4:30am wake ups in the middle of Summer to catch sunrise (although it is fun).

The easiest part of your job?
Sharing my work is so easy compared to photographers that never had social media. It’s as easy as pressing a few buttons.

What type of cameras do you shoot with?
I mainly shoot with the Nikon D3200, an entry level DSLR. I also have multiple old film cameras that I sometimes will take with me just for personal work.

What is your favourite computer/editing accessory, other than your computer?
Wouldn’t say I have one, unless good music counts!

If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?
That’s tough, I love a good wide-angle shot but also close up detail. I’d have to say the Nikon 12-24mm f/4, I haven’t used it, but I imagine it would be really good.

What is your most used Photoshop tool, action set, plug-in etc.?
I don’t use Photoshop, only Lightroom, but my most used tool is the angle straightener (shh).

What advice do you have for photographers just starting out?
Shoot for yourself and no one else, shoot what you love. Be very critical of your own work and accept all constructive criticism from others to help you grow.

Biggest challenge
Finding a market for art/photography, selling work.

Do you make time for personal photographic work? If so, what do you enjoy photographing and do you have an image you can share with us?
On the occasion I take out an old Nikonos film camera (which is water proof) in the surf and get a few shots. It’s personal as it’s hard to print and share film, so I generally keep it to myself. I’ve attached a film shot of my home beach.

Did you go to school to study photography?
Nope, I have done a few years of basic art but otherwise I am self taught.

How would you describe your style?
I think I have a natural style with natural editing, maybe towards to abstract side of things in terms of execution. I like to capture moments that are nice, that give the viewer a nice, comfortable, calm feeling.

What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing imagery?
I just love exploring the environment around me, it is the inspiration. I could on a hike with no preconceived ideas and come home with a few unique images. Sometimes I’ll get a okay shot, and I’ll return to perfect it.

What has been your most memorable assignment and why?
Ah there’s so many! I’ll never forget one night in Jindabyne, out taking photos of the stars with a mate, I discovered that a pack of wild brumbies were charging! We both ran and climbed a tree to get out of the way. The brumbies kept running and we were safe to take more photos.

What would your dream assignment be?
Travel to somewhere extreme like Antarctica or Iceland, somewhere cold and crazy.

The first photographer that comes to your mind and why?
There’s way too many! Chris Burkard, Mark McInnis, Daniel Kordan, William Patino, Chris Wiewiora. With my Facebook and Instagram full of high quality photos it’s hard to pick one.

If not a photographer, what would you have been?
Artist, woodworker, musician maybe. Anything where I can create.

If you could have lunch with anyone who is famous who would it be?
The Dalai Lama.

Something you’re still learning?
How to find a larger audience.

Big Kids in the Kitchen at the Chifley Hotel, Wollongong



Written by Leigh-Anne @ What's on in Wollongong
 
Food, food, food. We all love it, we all need it.....but do we all know how to cook it? Do you ever find yourself at a restaurant or friend's place for dinner and wonder how they manage to make everything look, smell and taste so good?

Do you feel that unbelievable pressure when your having dinner guests over to live up to restaurant quality standards with all the ease of a duck to water? Well you are not alone.

I have often wondered if it was some secret society of foodies who gathered together in the moonlight to exchange their knowledge and keep the rest of us in the dark cooking our tinned baked beans on toast.

Lucky for me I was to find out otherwise! When I was invited to attend the Chifley Hotel, Wollongong for one of their Big Kids in the Kitchen series of cooking classes I immediately said yes! At last I was going to be privy to the secrets of preparing a meal fit for a king.

The class I was attending was entitled 'My Kitchen Rules' and was aimed at beginners wanting to know the basics of the kitchen. It would include techniques and information on knife skills, buying food and ingredients, fundamentals of cooking sauces, meat, pasta and little tricks of the trade. I was intrigued to say the least.

On arrival at the Chifley Hotel, Wollongong I was shown in to a private room where I was to meet my fellow foodies for the day. Much to my delight there were several attendees who were regular 'Big Kids in the Kitchen' attendees. They had not only attended many of the classes on offer in previous years but they had also attended many classes more than once. There reasons were simple - they had fun!

After a refreshing breakfast juice it was straight into the Chifley commercial kitchen with Head Chef Peter for some interactive discussions and demonstrations. Firstly, let me just say that a commercial kitchen is impressive! I found it fascinating to see where the food is actually prepared. It is definitely a 'well oiled machine' that keeps a top quality restaurant running. You gain an appreciation for how and where your food is prepared.

Chef Peter introduced us to cooking products and food I didn't even know was possible for a home cook to use. I mean I have seen these products listed on a menu and they all sound and taste so good but it didn't even cross my mind that I could use them in my own kitchen. Smoked sea salt, liquid smoke, micro herbs and truffle salt were now quickly becoming a part of my shopping list. Best of all I now know how to use them.

We then moved on to how to make our own sauces from scratch. Now for me this has always seemed like an enormous task but not anymore. Once you know how to do it and what to add it's only a matter of minutes before you have a delicious pesto, fish sauce and even gravy. No more bottle sauces served at my table!


Moving on to the secret of the perfect pork crackle - yum. Who hasn't spent absolute hours trying to get that perfect crackle up only to be bitterly disappointed. Those days are now gone for me thanks to Big Kids in the Kitchen. Of course I would love to tell you the secret.......but then it wouldn't be a secret! You will have to visit Chef Pete for that answer.

I always get confused when I go to the butchers with the varying cuts of meat and remembering which cuts to use in which circumstances depending on what you are cooking.

And just how do you tell if what you are buying the freshest meat you can get. Chef Peter was able to show us all how to discern by the colour of a cut of meat as to how fresh it may be and how to pick the best cut for a magnificent end result. I am certainly looking at my cuts of meat a bit differently in the weekly visit to the butchers.

We finished things off with a pasta demonstration including an easy pasta dough and how to cut or make the various pasta shapes. A great big bowl of fresh pasta is the best comfort food and so simple to make.

The time in the kitchen had come to an end but I was walking away with a feeling of renewed confidence and a bursting desire to get home and cook up a storm in my own kitchen. I found the kitchen experience completely interactive with time for questions and answers and some highly enjoyable tales from Chef Peter.

Back into the dining room and we were treated to a demonstration on how to make Sangria. It is honestly the easiest thing to put together and absolutely delicious. Perfect for dinner parties or when you have guests over. It will truly impress.

It was time for lunch! We were served with a mouthwatering fish meal complete with accompanying wine and of course the Sangria. I was in heaven. It was without a doubt a absolutely delicious and totally went above my expectations. The conversation around the table of relative strangers flowed and quite honestly it felt like we were old friends sitting around the table for a catch up.

 I couldn't imagine things getting any better but I was so wrong. Out came the salted caramel slice. Absolutely to die for. I have to admit that I had 3 pieces with one (or three!) on the way out the door. I could eat that for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Big Kids in the Kitchen series runs throughout the year and offers a variety of classes including Chocolate Appreciation, Take me on a Journey to Italy and so much more! Click here for a full list.

Discuss, ask questions, get involved and learn with a passionate professional but most of all have fun! Whether you do it solo, with a friend or in a small group you will not be disappointed.

The Messy Playgroup

Written by Leigh-Anne Wrighter

Time to have some fun with some messy play!



I think most parents would agree that the words 'kids' and 'messy'  go hand in hand.

As a child there is nothing better than free range play, exploring and getting your hands dirty with no such thing as time frames and procedure.

The Messy Playgroup in Thirroul provides this environment in a super kid friendly facility twice a week. Combine that with several craft activities based on a different theme each week and you have a winner!

On our first visit to The Messy Playgroup the theme was the much loved children's book Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. It was a magical combination of wonder and delight created with great thought and care.

We were warmly greeted by owner Nancy, who much to my delight immediately engaged my two daughters in conversation, showing them what was on offer and making them feel right at home. 

This was a relief for a mother of two girls who can sometimes take a while to warm up to a new environment. They were immediately comfortable with Nancy as they followed her to the craft table to make their very own baubles to hang on the Christmas tree.  All this without hanging off my leg as if they were safety poles.

Filling the baubles with glitter and paint and then shake shake shake...the girls were completely mesmerised.  It all seemed too easy and something I made a note of to do at home. I mean why didn't I think of this earlier?

From bauble making to 'green, green, grass' (in adult terms this means green spaghetti!), the girls gleefully ran their fingers up and down through the grass, pulling long pieces out. We discussed how funny it would be if our grass was like this and asked 'how would daddy mow the lawn'?

The sensory rich play experience continued with some mud (i.e. jelly) and snow (i.e. shaving foam) where we could dig our fingers in deep to find if anything was hiding beneath. I mean really, it wouldn't be a decent bear hunt without mud and snow!

We finished our bear hunt off with some torch play in the soft play area where we continued our search for that naughty bear. We didn't find him!  They have a pretty amazing set up at Messy Play Thirroul, including a ball pit, soft play area, giant chalk board and even a toy kitchen for imaginative play. 

Best of all the play is all 'free style'.  There is no 'you have five minutes here, five minutes there' It is absolutely whatever interests your little one in that very moment.  Oh to live in the moment - what a wonderful feeling.


The kids are relaxed and therefore the parents are relaxed.  I took home two very happy children together with our new handmade baubles and hung them with pride on our Christmas tree for all to see. 

The baubles have since been carefully put away for many Christmases to come. 

Owner Nancy mentioned to me that The Messy Playgroup was her "labor of love" and this definitely resonates with the preparation, care and dedication she gives to making sure both the children and parents thoroughly enjoy their time at The Messy Playgroup.

Oh and did I mention the best part...you don't have to clean up and the kids come home clean thanks to the art smocks provided.

The Messy Playgroup is a weekly parent participation class, providing sensory and creative art sessions for children 5 and under, with the objective of developing children's social, cognitive and fine motor skills.

Children are encouraged to explore and get creative with a variety of messy materials during a 45 minute class.

Classes run on Monday and Thursday mornings from Thirroul or Monday and Friday mornings at Forestville. Each creative session includes an exciting new theme around which the messy play activities are based.

Voyage to the Deep at Australian National Maritime Museum

Written by Leigh-Anne Wrighter 
 
When I was invited to attend a preview of Voyage to the Deep, an interactive children's' exhibition based on a fantasy submarine world at the National Maritime Museum I was a little bit excited......OK I was really excited.

I love activities with my two little munchkins but I love it even more when I know that they are going to be learning at the same time as having a heap of fun.  Best of all it was in a fully interactive environment where role playing was a must!

Using the classic Jules Verne's novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea written almost 150 years ago depicting the tale of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus, Voyage of the Deep has created a fantastical underwater world where adventure and discovery go hand in hand.

Using the fantasy of the novel with real submarines and modern deep-sea research, kids (and adults alike) are in for a real treat as they discover what it is really like to live and work under the deep blue sea.

 On arrival we were shown into the exhibition where we entered into a deep under sea world complete with a fully interactive deep-sea replica steampunk submarine.  We were in for the ultimate underwater adventure and we didn't even have to get wet!

Whilst discovering the mysteries of the deep I had real trouble pulling my children away from the fully interactive screen at the helm of the wheel of the steampunk submarine as they laughed and giggled diving us deeper and deeper into the murky waters trying to avoid any collisions with the creatures that lurk beneath. There imaginations were working overtime and they had everything they needed to bring their role play to life.

I was given the title of designated first mate (captain 1 and captain 2 were already taken!) and had the duty of peering up the periscopes to make sure the giant squid was not chasing us and calling out "ahoy there" on demand.

As we made our way down the submarine we took an interactive quiz listening to various under water noises and discovering what animal or machine would make such a noise before moving on to the underwater organ.  Boy was this a winner with my 2 year old! I really need one of those in my house.

It was time for discovery as we searched the nearby sunken shipwreck for treasures and discussed how we could make a treasure map with "X" marks the spot when we got home.

Back onto the submarine and it appeared my fellow shipmates were a bit tired after all this hard work and it was time to take a nap in the sailors' quarters.  Too bad there was no room for mum! Obviously feeling refreshed my girls took a slide down the submarine's squid tentacle slippery dip before heading to the kelp forest where we searched for signs of sea life.

We finished our adventure with a relaxing boat row in the octopus' garden where my five year old declared "I wish I had a submarine".

You can also discover ghost nets, aquanauts and marine snow.  See the school of jellyfish made from fishing line, feel the weight of deep-sea diving boots and decide whether you could live and work under water.

Voyage to the Deep at the National Maritime Museum is located in Darling Harbour and is on NOW until 27 April 2015.< This was a great day out for the whole family where interactive play is a major contributor to a full day of fun sparking curiosity and imagination.  It opened up so many lines of conversations between my girls and they were so busy playing they didn't even realise they were learning at the same time.


Aimed at children 12 and under, Voyage to the Deep encourages learning through interaction. If you are after a hands-on experience with opportunities for your children to touch, explore and play then this is for you.  There is even a special guide for grown ups!

Whilst you are there check out the new Mini Mariners Play area, an interactive gallery space for children 0-5 years.  Let your little ones take an imaginative journey from the sandy seashore to under the sea with themed free play games, activities and displays especially designed to stimulate your child's growing min and inspire their curiosity. This is free with your museum entry.
The Australian Maritime Museum also has a real submarine, HMAS Onslow, located just outside the main entrance.  You can check it out with your Big Ticket (family pass $70). Please note the submarine closes at 4pm daily.


And with handy facilities like a takeaway kiosk, cafe, picnic benches and harbour-side wharf area, the Australian National Maritime Museum is hard to beat for summer fun with the kids.

Voyage to the Deep is on NOW until 27 April 2015 and runs from 9.30am to 5.00pm daily. (extended to 6pm in January)
