Look at this wonderful character that came to the studio today for a portrait. I love this kind of work!
My dear old chair has sadly lain dormant for some time now so I was very excited to bring it back into service with my youngest sitter yet – 6 day old Eli. He and his Mum came to the studio for some newborn shots and I snuck a quick couple of pics in on [...]
There are no tricks or fancy Photoshop work here, just a camera on a tripod, an old chair and some willing subjects. I love the flow and variety of faces that took time out to sit on ‘The Chair’ for this session, in fact, they are all very special to me because this lot is [...]
I love this shoot with the beautiful Olivia, loosely themed around the concept of Abandoned Dreams. We had lot of fun climbing the fence and sneaking in to shoot in this abandoned mansion where we were ceremoniously outed a short while later, thankfully, after we had got the shots! I somehow missed putting it up [...]
I had a cancelled shoot over the weekend so Leisha and I had some fun together using the studio to outwork a few ideas we had been talking about for some time. It was a real joint effort. I even got to give my beautiful green chair another run. I have no qualms in saying [...]
Meghan has modelled for me before but never looking like this – beautifully pregnant at 39 weeks. We had fun and I am looking forward to photographing the new arrival…
My poor old chair has been sitting idle of late, waiting for someone to grace it and along came my lovely long time friend Ann. I love these pics of her (and husband Steve who reluctantly joined her!).
Shine is a personal development program with an inspirational, practical and experiential approach to learning. I had the fabulous opportunity to photograph some of the lovely woman attending ‘Shine’. This collection of faces is a celebration of diversity and beauty and I just love all these unique and wonderful faces.
As a lover of people and faces I am thrilled to be photographing so many in my wonderful chair. Here is another batch to view.
Always one to try something different, I had some fun recently with this old picture frame that happened to came my way. I love these portraits of the Cox family that resulted.
I have to admit that I am really loving The Chair project, it’s simple; I love the chair, it is so divine it is a photo in itself but most importantly I love the mix of wonderful faces that are starting to grace it. Here is new collection of recent ‘sitters’.
It is so thrilling to see my vision for The Chair Project finally start to take shape. Not only was Leisha a willing subject, she has been a supportive and enthusiastic advocate as well. Thanks Leisha, you’re the best!
The hunt is over! I have finally found what I was looking for for The Chair Project!! This wonderful chair came from a home in Earlwood in Sydney’s inner west where it served it’s owners for 50 years before making it’s way to me. I fell in love with it as soon as I laid [...]
Kiara came along with her little brother Isaac for his ‘Birthday Bash’ shoot and I couldn’t resist photographing her as well. She is such a beautiful little princess.
Once again I had the opportunity to photograph the boys from ONE80TC. This time it was the guys who have made it through the program and are well under way with their recovery – so much so that they are sowing back into the program as Interns. All are studying their Cert IV in Alcohol [...]
For most families with adult children the effort of gathering everyone together at the one time is challenging if not impossible. So when it finally comes together It’s always a great opportunity to capture the family dynamics. This photo shoot for the Holders, which covers 4 generations from Grandpa to the newest addition, was no [...]
I recently had the opportunity to photograph rising star and young musician, Melisa Bester. She has the most wonderful singing voice along with a great presence and confidence. She is one very talented young lady who has a great future ahead of her. If you would like to know more about Melisa or listen to [...]
I have just begun to trial a new shoot for babies called ‘Birthday Bash’ to celebrate that important first birthday. I love the idea of them being given the opportunity, perhaps for the first time in their lives, to be able to mash into a cake and get it all over themselves. What a great [...]
Following on from the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed photo shoot comes the ‘Queen of Hearts’ with a bit of a grungy take. It was a fun character to play with, I wonder which one I can do next?
Here are a few pics of Lisa who came to me for some photos for her acting portfolio. We had a lot of fun with the studio shots using the props!
This photo shoot was inspired by the old movie ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’. I wanted to play with movement and drama whilst giving my models some lovely natural portraits to treasure.
The final 50s shoot and is modeled by Tess, daughter of the very talented Catherine from Embellish Atelier (www.embellish-hats.com). Her gorgeous dresses were original fifties pieces from her Grandmother with the hats being supplied by her mum of course. Soft, romantic and filmic styling was what I was looking to achieve for this last set [...]
The post war era of the Fifties was a great mix of glamorous couture and film idols to rockabilly and pinup girls and it is these last two groups that I drew inspiration from with these images. I love the expressions of individually and hint of sexiness that was beginning to emerge at that time. [...]
My thanks go to Catherine from Embellish Atelier (www.embellish-hats.com) who kindly lent me a number of her beautifully handcrafted couture hats that suited the 50s theme. My model in this shoot is Jenna and the hair and makeup was done by Roxie Gray.
