So here we are, I’ve finally finished this commission from a few weeks back. Jonny came to the studio and we talked about life, feelings, love, children and our own sense of self. We connected incredibly and our usual portrait session turned into something completely different. Jonny was open, honest and raw. More importantly though he wasn’t afraid of the camera and the more we talked the more he embraced it. The portraits are quite gritty, graphic and raw as a result. Jonny is now on my radar and I am honoured to call him and his beautiful wife Maria friends along with their wonderful children who I’ll be shooting later this year.
Ok. I know it’s February and everyone’s forgotten about Christmas, but I wanted to share our story this year. I was determined to photograph our festive time this year and have some memories for the future. We had lots of visitors, friends, families and lots of kids. Narell and I love having the house full of people enjoying themselves and relaxing. Good times. Thanks to all who came and shared with us, see you next year.
This is Nerida, she has an electrifying smile. Her love for husband Francois was very real and raw, these two people were amazing to be with. Great friendships were formed on their day. Thank you for letting me into your beautiful world.
Recently I had the pleasure of shooting a small intimate wedding in Sydney. The image shown here was taken late in the afternoon and was really a quick grab shot rather than any clever technical feat. I was lucky to get the shot off with the light dying in the sky. Sometimes I guess that’s all it takes. It was a great day with just a handful of guests, I was lucky to be invited to the after reception party. A great day and night.
i was fortunate enough before christmas to be commissioned to shoot a ballet concert showing the talent of future nureyev’s. it was a challenging environment to shoot in, along with the bad lighting was continuous movement and children. what a combination, i nearly had heart failure. i loved the experience. dance is filled with beautiful flowing movement, angst and electrically charged emotions. it was amazing.
here are a few of my favourites.
