A few months ago, Shaun and Susan got in touch looking for someone to shoot their wedding. Except it wasn’t really going to be a wedding. More a party at the Regatta Hotel, during which they would get married. They didn’t want the whole wedding package – formal bridal photos and all the trimmings. Their […]
I had a trip up to the Sunshine Coast last weekend, to shoot the Sunshine Coast Marathon. Since I had to arrive the day before, I figured it would be a great opportunity to get out and shoot some landscapes, which I haven’t done nearly enough of recently. The weather didn’t really play along, but […]
A little over a week ago, my phone rang. There was a lot of noise in the background, and the caller explained that she was in a beer warehouse. “There are worse places to be”, I thought. “What are you up to next week?”, she asked. Luckily, I was free all week, so was brought […]
Environmental portraits. They’re always much more interesting than a headshot in front of a white background. Taking portraits in a person’s home or workplace helps to tell their story, or the story of their business. Generally, environmental, or location portraits provide more context than a traditional studio portrait, and help subjects be more relaxed in […]
As well as travelling around the place and getting up early in the morning to cover events for Supersport Images, I’ve also recently photographed a couple of events in Brisbane for CEDA – the Committee For Economic Development of Australia. First was an event on investment and competitiveness in the agribusiness sector, and the second […]
Recently, I’ve mostly been photographing people. Corporate portrait, events, promotional, sport. They help pay the bills, but gosh I love getting out and photographing some nature. As long as I’ve lived in Brisbane, I’ve only been to Springbrook National Park a couple of times, usually opting for the slightly shorter drive to Tamborine. But yesterday, […]
I’ve just spent a great couple of days on the NSW North Coast with my brother and his two boys.
If you’ve known me for a while, you might remember that I took a trip to Japan in January 2015, to take part in one of Martin Bailey’s Hokkaido Winter Landscape tours. And I loved every minute of it. Firstly, for the opportunity to meet photographers I’ve known, or known of, for a long time […]
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve made a few trips down the coast to Coolangatta’s Snapper Rocks, culminating in today’s finals day of the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro World Surf League contests. I was there for the men’s quarter finals, featuring defending champion Filipe Toledo, world champion Adriano de Souza, Kolohe Andino, Adrian Buchan, […]
I recently volunteered to photograph the TEDx SouthBank event, which was held yesterday at the State Library of Queensland. I spent the day out on the ‘Activation Space’ balcony, so unfortunately didn’t get the chance to experience the presentations. But I did get to experience the many great conversations those presentations inspired. Also, donuts.
