Yarra Bay. Photoart by Greg Tingle
Tingle Photography Facebook
Local sports agent, photoartist and moderate environmentalist
will donate 50% of any of his local eco photoart sales
to Save Yarra Bay for duration of campaign. If I sold
that La Perouse / Yarra Bay Photo (and other Maroubra
to La Perouse eco / nature themed photo / photoart
of mine), for approx $180, and the buyer mentions
Save Yarra Bay, I will gladly donate half of the price
($90) to Save Yarra Bay. the photo would be enlarged
to the size of a large computer screen, and autographed,
if the buyer wanted. It's just an idea. Income gets
split 50/50. Half to our Media For Good, which gets
channelled back into the region anyway and supports
journalism, and the other half to Save Yarra Bay.
Keep up the wonderful work everyone. World beaters.

Thank you so much Greg - beautiful photos!
Thanks so much. Lots of folks wanted a bit more information
so I gave them a bit more detail with my connection
to nature, the ocean, how and why I settled in the
region and so on. I think to help Mother Nature, as
well as other people, and animals too, is one of the
best things we can do. It gives me a great feeling
just to know that I'm trying to help, and that other
people feel the same way also. I love the Margaret
Mead quote about a group of concerned citizens changing
the world. That very principal is being played out
as part of Save Yarra Bay. Just an outstanding community
effort. I get the feeling the world is watching this
space... for the right reasons. A wonderful show of
real authentic community consultation, not the fake
type that sometimes comes from some government related
departments. I think you may have an understanding
of what I mean. This is the community speaking up
and keeping it real. Keep doing what you and the team
are doing : )
Can you share any previous journalism work Greg?
of my past journalism work is showcased on my Media
Man Int website. I'm primarily a media and sports
agent and photoartist these days. From 2001 I did
five years independent and freelance journalism. I
found it so demanding and tolling that I started to
do more work as a media and sports agent, creating
and backing campaigns, and we are ramping up photography
and photoart. I still do interviews across many industries.
Again, many of these are showcased on the Media Man
Int website. I love and respect the craft of journalism,
but between the emotional toll it took on me, attending
crime scenes and such, as well as being extremely
difficult to make a living from it, I became an agent,
and also worked on a number of tech media projects.
You are most welcome to contact me privately. I'm
aiming to get a meeting with Randwick Council soon
about ways to create student and citizen journalism
opportunities. Council and community liked my Eco
Living Fair interviews and photoart, as well as my
eco photoart, so that's a good omen. My Whaledreamers
documentary coverage was huge, so that may be a good
one to look up. I'm very pleased to be doing my modest
bit for Save Yarra Bay, and for the environment in
general. Media For Good : ) Thanks email@example.com
Tingle any relation to John or Laura Tingle?
Thanks everyone. It's great that we live in a community
that has a genuine love for the natural environment.
I moved to the area circa 1995, over from Newport
Beach on the northern beaches. I worked in subscription
television (Optus Vision). At that time they set the
office up at Roseberry. It was too much of a daily
drive back and forward. My ex wife and I discovered
beautiful Maroubra Beach, which reminded me of my
original home break of Newport Beach, so we bought
a place at Pagewood. Yes, the natural beauty of the
area does remind me somewhat of Newport. I've lived
around the ocean the vast majority of life. The ocean
and nature help keep me going and are are great ways
to balance the technology (and sometimes stress) in
this crazy world. Ocean sports and beach culture are
an important part of my life. My surfing is extremely
average, but I enjoy it, which is the main thing.
I really like take photos of the amazing surfers in
the area, and I turn them into surfart and popart,
party influenced by the late Andy Warhol. He photographed
Muhammad Ali, and further inspired my sports art.
Oh, no relation to Laura or John, but I am the real
Greg Tingle! (son of the late Eric "Tricky Ricky"
Tingle) who was also based at Newport for many years.
We do have many creative and artist types in my family
including my mum, Beverley, who is a retired artist
(oils and sketches) and poet. Thanks again for all
that everyone is doing. If anyone ever wants a coffee
or beer meeting catch up it would be a pleasure. Cheers.
