Heritage sale scrutiny

In relation to my photographic series “If Walls Could Talk…” and “For the Fallen; in Memoria”, which document the Royal Derwent Hospital & Willow Court Complex, here is a 10min clip from ABC’s 7:30 report.

Photographing Dessert

Ever since seeing Marie Antoinette I’ve been lusting after parisan macaroons (or more correctly macaron), they come in lovely pastel shades and just look delicious. After taking a peek in a new cake shop I was surprised to find some and promptly bought several. I delicately positioned them in my little light tent and snapped away with the help of a variegated camellia.

There were delicious by the way!!

A bit of this and that.

I have been a bit slack with updating the blog 😦

But I can tell you what I’ve been shooting; some portrait work for a local metal band, toddler portraiture, live band shots, wilderness shots near Collins Cap, snow shots at the springs, rainy streetscapes …and I have a wedding coming up next week!! I love the variety of shooting different styles and types of photography.

In 3 more sleeps I’ll be heading back up to Cradle Mt and the Vale of Belvoir. I’m quite excited as I have a newer/better camera and tripod this time and a nice filter to play with. Hopefully the weather will be less crazy, only a few days back I heard tourists had been stranded as it had snowed down to 400m and the roads were closed! I also have some new walking/camping gear…as long as the gear doesn’t get wet it should all be good.

NEIS and Australian Geographic

I have recently commenced working full-time on my photography business with the support of the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme. This is a fantastic opportunity for small businesses just starting out and I highly recommend it.

The April-June edition of Australian Geographic is now out with a great article on the Vale of Belvoir trip I did last year. Its great to get some photos published in a magazine I used to read as a child 🙂

More news shortly…

Thank you Mr Taxman.

I recently joined the AIPP as an emerging member which I have been wanting to do for a while.  I have already been to a few of their events and its always nice to hang out with other photographers.  I highly recommend it to any photographers especially, those interested in the commercial/business side of things.

I finally got round to purchasing some new studio and lighting equipment – I just need a studio now…Its quite exciting as I have been wanting my own strobe/flash units for some time.  I had a play around and came up with this pleasant accident.

I’ve also started getting together some some greeting cards/post cards of my work. I’m starting with wilderness images for now and we’ll see how that goes.  Its still very early stages though.

This one is available as a post card:

~ I have lots of ideas ticking over in my head and have felt pretty inspired – I just wish I had an office or a studio so I could properly get to work on few of these things.
