Portrait shoot at Truby King Gardens

June 13, 2015
It has been a while since I've updated my blog seeing it is so much easier to post images on Facebook. But with Facebook, there is always the online debate of 'who owns the copyright to the images?'. Hence that is why I prefer to keep Facebook image posts to a minimum. It also takes me about half a day to think of what I am going to write and I'm...

A Valentines Day Wedding

February 21, 2015
Here is my first wedding of the year with the incredibly sweet couple, Victor and Debbie. Victor is an all round nice guy and a gentleman. He is able to light up Debbie's eyes every time he walks into the room; and Debbie who is incredibly sweet and fun loving, brings a sense of completeness to Victor. I loved photographing Victor and Debbie...

May 12, 2014
Here is my 3 year old son Reuben (yes, the real Reuben;p) during the school holidays. Our little master chef made us some delicious Smoked Salmon and Dill Pizza. This goes in line with the Montessori philosophy of teaching the child to be independent and do things for themselves. You can find the original recipe here at: http://www.taste.com.au/...

Amelia - Baby Shoot

May 12, 2014
Here is my first attempt at newborn photography with the birth of my daughter, Amelia. Who knew there would be so many moving parts to taking a baby photo, room temperature at 28 degrees, heart beat monitor, and looking at props and asking 'Can she fit in that?'.;P Kudos to all those professional baby photographers out there, it is way trickier t...

An Intimate Wedding

December 02, 2013
Weddings don't get more intimate than this; the Bride (Seraphina), the Groom (Josh), the Flower Girl (Mya), the Celebrant (Bernadette Buckley), my assistant (Jojo Sexton) and I. I loved working with this couple, Josh & Seraphina, both highly creative people. Josh is an aspiring film maker, always full of ideas and Seraphina, a costume designer, pr...

Chinese Opera

October 29, 2013
This was my first behind-the-scenes performance art events shoot a few years back. I was invited to shoot the show by fellow photographer Keane Chan. Keane was my 'technical advisor' when I was first starting out in photography. Anything to do with gear and technical stuff, he was the go-to guy. I have also shot a few weddings with Keane as a secon...

Natalie - Portrait of a Performance Artist

October 22, 2013
Here is a portrait shoot I did with the SUPER AMAZING multi-talented musician - Natalie Hunt. I LOVE all these shots and would have happily used them ALL for my portfolio pieces...but the 'experts' say I may confuse my target market which is Engagements and Weddings. The truth is, I just love capturing peoples natural expressions and emotions....

What's in a texture?

October 20, 2013
I've been busy scouring the neighbourhood for all kinds of textures. Recently, my old hard drive decided it wasn't going to work any more, so I lost my entire texture collection that I had been collecting over the years. Textures can make an otherwise ordinary image visually interesting. I have been categorizing my textures into various groups suc...
