Terry

Terry

Terry. I’ve started photographing portraits of friends and family in a project yet to be named – it’s a way of looking at people with no obvious expressions, no obvious mood, no obvious emotion. I am not sure what it means yet, but if you would like to be involved, let me know.

Paul

Paul

My dear friend Paul – this photo was actually taken exactly 2 years ago, but recently edited into black and white – I think it fits nicely into this theme…   I’ve started photographing portraits of friends and family in a project yet to be named – it’s a way of looking at people with […]

Smile

Smile

I couldn’t resist this one – I do have a great “straight” face for her, but this is Bear’s GF showing a bit of cheek – super cute 🙂 This is her “straight” portrait. I’ve started photographing portraits of friends and family in a project yet to be named – it’s a way of looking […]

Scott

Scott

Scott is my other cousin, whose wedding to Michelle I attended in 2001, the last time prior to this trip that I had seen him. Scott and I held a very strong bond when we were much younger, and it was great to feel that this was still there after all these years.   I’ve […]

Michelle

Michelle

Scott’s wife   I’ve started photographing portraits of friends and family in a project yet to be named – it’s a way of looking at people with no obvious expressions, no obvious mood, no obvious emotion. I am not sure what it means yet, but if you would like to be involved, let me know.

My cousin Bear, who I hadn’t seen for eleven years, and who I love dearly.

This is Matt – a friend I’ve known since I was about 16.   I’ve started photographing portraits of friends and family in a project yet to be named – it’s a way of looking at people with no obvious expressions, no obvious mood, no obvious emotion. I am not sure what it means yet, […]

Michael behind his veil

I was honoured to shoot friends getting ready for their wedding ceremony a few weeks ago – Kenneth and Michael chose and orchestrated the most elaborate Western-themed gay wedding I’ve ever been to!! Everyone who attended went to so much trouble to dress up – this elevated the fun to the max, and the boys […]

Andrea

Another couple of shots of Andrea …

Pregnancy

Pregnancy photography

I love shooting pregnant mummas bellies – this is Andrea in the last weeks of her pregnancy

Florence

This is Florence, born via cesarean section in July this year after a prolonged labour. Such a beautiful big girl, mum needed a bit of extra help getting her out… It was a real privilege to be witness to this birth.

Carly and Dean

Carly and another friend and I shared a house together with our three dogs for almost a year – about 8 years ago! My how time flies… This is Carly’s family today! She and Dean were engaged earlier this year, and as well as Carly turning 30, I thought it would be nice to have […]

Zachariah Alexander Kramer

Zachariah Alexander Kramer

Zachariah Alexander Kramer was born at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide on Monday the 9th of April at 8.55pm. His parents asked me to photograph his entrance into the world which was both an honour and an extreme privilege… He is a very special bub in more ways than one – he has […]

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo

This is another photo of Sally-Jo from our fun shoot last year – just mixing it up a little 🙂

Gianna and Chris

Gianna and Chris

Gianna and Chris posed up at the lookout at Goolwa Beach – this is one of the last photos we took before the couple headed off to the reception. Gianna is a great photographer herself, so it was a real privilege to be asked to shoot her wedding – this pose was her idea 🙂

Simon and his Coffee Bread for Oxfam Fair Trade

Simon and his Coffee Bread…

I’m doing a little shoot tonight for The Salvos, where Simon Bryant is going to make up some recipes and show how to cook from our own gardens. I’m getting in the groove by uploading this photo of him that I shot for Oxfam a couple of months ago for their Fair Coffee promo. You […]

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo and Tim were married this time last year! As an anniversary present, Sally asked me to take some photos of her for Tim – I just love this setting and pose. She went to so much effort to get the clothes and the hair and make-up “just so” for this retro shoot. I can […]

Billie and Karina

Billie and Karina

The ceremony and reception of Billie and Karina was held in Mt Crawford Forest this past weekend, and was officiated by Merrilyn Williams. The weather was just perfect – sunny but cool, and the setting was equally perfect – green, lush and natural. Tall gums formed the canopy with Xanthorrhoea and other low shrubs, the […]

Sarah's Beautiful Belly!

Sarah’s Beautiful Belly!

I had the pleasure and privilege to photograph some of Humna Suharwardy‘s henna work last week, this time on good friend, Sarah’s beautifully round pregnant belly! It has been a few months since I have photographed her working, yet it seemed like just yesterday that we worked together. I captured the process from beginning to […]

Oliver

Oliver

Meet Oliver, or “Oli” as his renowned cheesecake model mum and great friend of mine Gemma Ven Detta nick-names him. Gemma invited me to photograph him and his friend, Ayla a couple of weeks ago – the two babies are, within hours, exactly the same age – these photos were taken at about 10 weeks. […]

Terry

Terry

A fun shoot with a friend and his wings – what more really needs to be said? Thanks Terry!

Paul

Paul

Paul Tait is a dear friend made through a shared passion we have for photography. We “met” online through flickr back in 2007, and then officially at a flickr meet at Second Valley. We have since become great friends, and have shared many hours discussing, taking and exhibiting photos together, including an exhibition for Feast […]

Gemma & Sam & ...

Gemma & Sam & …

I had the privileged of shooting with the sensationally gorgeous and radiantly pregnant Gemma Vendetta on the weekend!  She is 37 weeks along in her pregnancy, and seriously looking so happy and glowing and so ready to be a mum 🙂 Her husband Sam was such a good sport, allowing us more time than was  […]

Holley and Alana

Holley and Alana

Holley and Alana’s ceremony was held at Windy Point, South Australia. The theme was “Moroccan” with richly coloured rugs and cushions, drapes and lanterns hanging from the ceiling of the permanent marquis that is built in Belair, high up above the city of Adelaide. The building  is seemingly sitting in the tops of the prolific […]

Caroline

Caroline

This is Caroline, minutes before getting into the car to be taken to the church in Wattle Park to marry Scott. She was actually extremely calm, and was completely ready to go at this stage. Her mother and brides’ maids were much more flighty; fussing around with safety pins and hairspray. She and Scott had […]

Luca on Goolwa Beach

Luca on Goolwa Beach

No photo gallery of mine would be complete without a pic of my girl, Luca. She is my (now) 10 ½ year old Belgian Shepherd (Groenendael). She has been my constant companion for that whole 10 ½ years, as she was assigned to me even before she was born. I held her at one day […]

Pontus

Pontus

This is my “Tuesday-Boy”, Pontus. I have looked after him for one day a week for most of his life. I have recently switched to only a half-day, as he now has a little brother, Lukas, and his mum is home from work for a while. I take photos of Pontus most days I spend […]

TRJ

TRJ

Another for my “Hand Book”… this photo was taken of a friend during his last months; writing his memoirs so family and friends could read down the track. The natural sunlight was warm and inviting, as he sat in a chair by the open French doors, rug on his lap, listening to the birds in […]

Humna

Humna

I promised I would load some more photos of my work with Humna Mustafa. This photo was taken during my first ever shoot with her, in the Botanic Gardens with Haley Dry as a model. It was a practice run for future shoots – for both Humna and I to decide if we could work […]

Kids!

Kids!

I love shooting kids… they are so much fun to work with! I just follow them around and let them do what comes naturally… Some of my favourite shoots ever have been with kids – some just happen, like this shot of  a friend’s daughter as she was playing. Other shots take a bit more […]
