So Friday, it was awesome to have my super colourful friend into the studio for a long overdue catch up and creative session. With Kristen behind the styling and body paint wheel, I set up the lighting to create some isolation giving the pictures room to breathe some fresh air and give that stunning dash of colour a subtle glow. Using a slight take on the evanescence lighting style, cranking up the volume, the flash heads boomed with each shot, filling the studio with more white light than the pearly gates! I love to shoot creative headshots for actors, it puts me in a place where my juices can flow and fills my sou! More shoots like these please, bring me your wildest dreams and I’ll make them into life.
With your heart full of colour you will always be a Rainbow warrior

So spring is just around the corner and we have some time for breathing again after a long wet and cold Adelaide winter. I have a heap of things I want to do personally… and as a photographer. First off, I plan on spending more time in the ocean, surfing more and once again living at the beach!
…But photography, oh wow, I have some plans for my work this summer! Aside from my current project “The Kombi Sessions”, which is a photojournalistic portrait looking into the lives of South Australian VeeDub Kombi owners. I want to take a little bit of focus on couples. I photographs so many families and one thing I have learned from all of the amazing people I meet, is that very few of them (Mum and Dad) have had any really beautiful images together. Everybody tells me “we’ve not had our picture taken since our wedding” or for some, just the odd camera phone selfie.. which are great, but Im all about quality, making art and taking picture making to the next level.
This spring and summer, I want to bring all of you cute couples together in pictures, tell a little of your story. As with many of my portraits, specially my outdoor location work, I tend to lean towards a photojournalistic approach as I just love real life and unposed pictures, whats happening now really counts.
It’s pretty simple, just call me and we’ll shoot off somewhere amazing and make some photographs together and tell an intimate story that you can watch grow.
South Australia has some amazing beaches and parks with such beautiful vistas. I caught up with these girls at the tail end of summer on one of Adelaide’s mid coast beaches. Such a cute day!
