This week i had the opportunity to shoot something a little different. DJ Jonny Zimber wanted some promotional shots done to use as advertising posters for both events as well as business cards and flyers. I really enjoyed the shoot as it allowed me to be creative not only in shoot but on processing as well. Jonny’s muse is house and being originally from the UK has plenty of flavour.

Another beautiful morning in Hyde Park photographing friends followed by coffee in East Perth. What a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Erik was my first ever baby shoot, he’s a year older now and just starting to walk. This time his father Marcus was was back from work so we could get some wonderful family shots. It was also the first time i have had the pleasure of shooting in overcast conditions! Fantastic light makes for some great outdoor photography! Please click on the photo to go to the gallery.
Wedding photography, I love the challenge and the pressure yet more than that i love meeting the people that make these wonderful days. Louise and Chris are all about their friends. They wanted an informal wedding and held it at a friends home, a beautiful architecturally designed house in City Beach. Again this was another photographic journalism style of photography. Chris and Louise wanted a record of the day rather than the more formal posed shots. The night was a celebration of two families coming together from the moment it started until the small hours of the morning. I heard it went right through to sun up! Thank you very much to the newly weds for the opportunity to capture your moments. It was a pleasure!
Just before Christmas last year i had the opportunity to shoot the Sheedy’s at Hyde Park. Andrea is a schoolmate so it was great to catch up and meet her family. It was going to be a stinker of a hot day so we met there early in the morning to beat the heat and apparently to catch the kids before they went ferral. I don’t know what you were talking about Andrea, they were great! . This was also opportunity to test drive my new lens, the revered Canon 70-200. It’s heavy, gaudy and cumbersome yet totally worth the effort. I’m loving it! I’ve kept most of the images in mono as requested thankfully by Andrea, i say thankfully as i have found that black and white seems to mellow out the dappled light really well.
A while ago i was invited to take photos of some friends of mine at their wedding. I’m new to wedding photography and admittedly i was very nervous about the shoot, especially on the day. Upon arrival at Bree and David’s beautiful house in the hills locality of Darlington my mind relaxed. This was the most gorgeous relaxed wedding! Bree and David are such warm friendly people and that really showed all through the day with friends and family, some from as far away as New York enduring the heat to celebrate their wedding. This shoot was a photographic journalism style of photography aiming to capture the whole day as a candid record instead of the usual posed shots. The shoot came out wonderfully and i think it really suits the wedding. Congratulations to Bree and David and thank you very much for such a great opportunity.
