We love seeing the work of Australian Olympus photographers and the internet is a great place to connect with them, whether it be via Facebook, Twitter or Flickr.
It’s exciting to see the different ways in which photographers use our camera equipment. Often it’s photographs of family, friends and travel. Sometimes it’s more ambitious experiments with style. Sometimes it’s the photographer setting a challenge for him or herself.
Cameron Blake’s A Waterfall a Week – 52 Tasmanian Waterfalls project is one such challenge. We’ve been enjoying Cameron’s project for a while now and are pleased to announce that he will be joining us for the rest of the year as a guest blogger for Olympus.
Each month, Cameron will be sharing his adventures and his images with you as he travels Tasmania, photographing its waterfalls, from the crowd pleasers to the hidden gems.
So please make Cameron feel welcome as he shares his adventure through the Tasmanian wilderness.
A Waterfall a Week - 52 Tasmania Waterfalls
By Cameron Blake
My wife and I recently moved to Hobart, Tasmania after many years of deliberation. Being a professional photographer I couldn’t think of a better place to set up camp to capture the natural beauty of Tasmania. Once I was settled, I decided to set myself a challenge for 2012; a challenge that will promote the wild beauty and mystery of the island.
The challenge I set myself is now named, “A Waterfall a Week- 52 Tasmanian Waterfalls”. For every week of 2012 I will challenge myself to capture and promote 52 of the most wonderful waterfalls in Tasmania.
The weeks started off with some nice summer weather throughout the Hobart area. I decided that to capture a waterfall a week, it was best if I started off close to home. Capturing the Hobart area is simply amazing and easily completed.

Some of the 52 waterfalls are the usual tourist favourites; but I have managed to come across some of the lesser-known falls. I love to hike with my trusty Olympus camera gear and get out into the wilderness and this challenge is surely helping me feel like a local around the southern Tasmania wilderness. To date I am confident that I will find the 52 waterfalls and complete a waterfall a week. I hope you can follow me in my journey.
