It’s been a while since i have blogged and for good reason. What a start to the year! …I admit it’s not exactly the beginning of the year any more yet for me arriving back at work after a very relaxing three weeks off was met by a very hectic schedule and as such my photography case has sat untouched for quite some time. That is until recently…
Some good friends of mine Alister and Charmaine asked to capture their day in the beautiful surrounds of Gurungup Park and then over to the Moores Building in Fremantle for the reception. The Moores Building in Fremantle is such a fantastic venue for a reception. Perfect for two of Perth’s talented architects. Decorated with polystyrene trees, rustic rendered walls, magical lighting and a beer garden not to be forgotten. Alister and Charmaine have also hosted some of the best parties i’ve been privileged to attend so i was quite excited to be photographing the event …I felt i had to up the anti and pull out the stops to come up with something to match those parties!. It came in the form of a last minute addition of a photobooth. Add a backdrop set up on the dance floor, a couple of props at the reception and hold on to that shutter for the ride! What a wonderful way to capture the candid moments of the reception! A fantastic evening was had by all i’m sure and a very big congratulations to the newly weds.

Thank you for a wonderful night and allowing me to capture your memories. I’ll leave you with a little video of all the photobooth images as a time lapse. Hope you enjoy watching it as much as i do.
Lights, camera, action! Just do your best darling…
Lights? as in off camera?, studio lights?, triggers?. Shit! i have to do some reading! To say i was a little out of my depth here was an understatement. I had planned to do some reading before this shoot but well, life happened and i never had the chance. Luckily for me i had my friend and Craig Byrne helping me out on this one and although he too was a little green in the lighting department i think we ‘winged’ it pretty well. This was a promotional shoot for a good friend of mine Cathrine Ann who is a gifted jazz vocalist. We are indeed blessed to have this angelic voice with us here. Add one wonderfully beautiful Jazz singer model into the mix with a few friends at Padlock Studios in East Perth, cheese, bikkies and enough bevy’s to fuel a bucks party and we had one fantastic day! The shots started out a little stiff and rehearsed but as time progressed we all loosened up to reveal some great shots for promotional media. Not only did the shoot turn out well, friends were made. Thank you to Craig for the help, Samantha and Amanda for the makeup and finally to Cathrine for the opportunity to be involved in such a wonderful day. Please click on the photo of Catherine to go to the gallery.
Every once in a while i have a little treat in photography. I’m talking about having the wonderful opportunity to take photos of friend’s babies. I did a shoot for Jodi and Pete of their little Archie. Such a nice experience. Congratulations to you both on such a handsome little boy. He’s going to be a heartbreaker …and hopefully a good cricketer! Thanks for the opportunity. Great to meet little Archie too!
After a little hiatus from baby photography the latest shoot is up in the gallery. 9 Month old Keyla Rose, Daughter of Ines and Thomas. A fantastic shoot albeit in the smallest of rooms!. That being said i reckon the photos came out really well. To Ines and Thomas, thank you very much for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful daughter, it was my pleasure and a big thank you to Keyla for being such a good little girl for the shoot!

I’m starting to have a play around with video editing after hearing all the uber cool things i can do with the 5DMK2 so here is a timelapse that i did a while ago. Startrailing out the back of the Perth Hills on a beautiful autumn night. Set up the camera, walk away and sit by the campfire for a couple of hours. Such a great way to spend a night. The images are then stacked and produces some awesome final results! Have to get out there and do some more!
