Ex Tropical Cyclone Fina delivers huge swell at Kingscliff. Photographer Tracy Jay was close by on Sunday 25th to capture this dramatic shot as the waves break near the already endangered surfclub. Coastal erosion has been relentless at Kingscliff since 2009.

Commencing February 2012 artists, Tracy Jay and Michael Bryant from Curious Digital Photography have been conducting innovative workshops for beginners to intermediate digital photographers. An advanced class is available for those completing the beginner/intermediate course.
The workshops are aimed at cultivating photographic skills through an enjoyable creative process. Participants will develop the skills to enhance the marketability of their images. Today a broad range of photographic equipment is accessible to everyone.
Curious Digital Photography welcomes all levels of experience for these workshops, as they will include creative briefs which are not dictated by expertise.
The workshops will be held in a studio environment at the Curious Art Gallery, situated in a tranquil riverside setting with expansive panoramic views across the Tweed River to Wollumbin/Mt.Warning.
Participants are expected to bring a camera (any variety i.e. Digital SLR, 35mm film SLR, compact point and shoot etc.)
Computers are available in the Gallery to preview and critique work from assignments.
Tracy and Michael are aware there is a lot on offer for digital photography workshops and have this to say about their classes:
"There are many photography courses out there in Brisbane, the Gold Coast to Tweed Heads and in Byron Bay. However what we are offering is quite unique. The final outcome provides students not only with increased creative and technical skills and motivation but also an opportunity to exhibit in a special exhibition for the students in an established Art Gallery near Kingscliff."
