Well ... to say I enjoyed Cockatoo Island would be an understatement! I have wanted to go for a while, and finally all the stars aligned for me to get there. You do need to take a ferry from Woolwich Wharf (and if you know me, I don't do boats ... but I will for a photo) to get to the Island. The island was much bigger than I expected, and it has two levels. Both of them are gorgeous with different things to offer. There are many buildings to wander around, and as a photographer, what I was taken by was the different textures. So many places I could see me placing couples, families, or even just a woman who wants some gorgeous photos of herself. There was an abundance of sandstone, wood, tin, brick, you name it! I loved the shadows the light made coming in through the windows (the arches reminded me a little of Play School). There are cafes there so you can grab food and really make a day of it. There are tunnels that go through the island (they were closed when I visited), and even walkways to see the Convict Silo cut into the stone. There is an amazing view at the top of the Bridge, as well as a stunning homestead. There is also the spots where they used to put convicts in solitary confinement (that was creepy). Please please please contact me if you are interested in doing a shoot here. You won't regret it! You can see there are so many photos here, because everywhere I looked there was another amazing spot I could photograph! And yes, lots of amazing doors, arches, walkways ... have I sold you on this location yet?
