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 […]

Valerie

Valerie

This is Valerie just before heading off to the ceremony – still full of nerves, she was so beautiful doing a last minute check of her bouquet…

Carly

Carly

This photo of Carly was taken for a group exhibition held at Edgewater Gallery last year called “Body and Soul“. The exhibition included fellow photographers Paul Tait, Naomi Clarke, Paul Clarke and Dianne Davies. We had a great opening night, and a number of photos were sold. “Conscience is the voice of the soul, the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tammy

Tammy

Tammy asked me to shoot her for her 30th birthday invitation – the theme was “Moulin Rouge“- we spent a fun afternoon playing with feather boas and cigarette holders… This shot is probably my favourite from the day – lots of post-processing adding in extra feathers and selective colouration – Tammy was pretty happy too […]

Katey and Nick

Katey

Katey and Nick were married earlier this year at their home in the Adelaide foothills. It was a very warm and casual affair with loads of family in their back yard, and they celebrated with their loved-ones before and after the actual ceremony. They then put on a veritable feast of Hungarian food and local […]

Bec and Erik

Bec and Erik

I shot Bec and Erik’s wedding earlier this year. It was a beautifully warm day and the ceremony was held at a local park overlooking the river, surrounded by tall gum trees. The bride arrived in this carriage pulled by two beautiful white horses with long, fuchsia-coloured head-dresses. She was dressed in burnt orange with […]

Three Imaginary Boys

Three Imaginary Boys

“Three Imaginary Boys” I received a Silver Award for this image  in the Open Section (Abstract/Illustrative) of the International Aperture Awards for 2009 – to be honest, I am not really sure what it means, but it sounded ok to me 🙂 This image is from the group exhibition “Body and Soul” held in 2009 […]

Andrea

Andrea

Andrea contacted me to take some photos of her whilst pregnant with her second child.  We did the session in her home, and got many interesting shots. This one was achieved  just with natural light, with Andrea standing in front of the large lounge-room windows. Post-processing was used to create the high-key / contrasty effect. […]

Tammy and Karen

Tammy and Karen

I photographed Tammy and Karen’s commitment ceremony back in October 2008. I worked together with Paul Tait and we shot a  lot of pre-wedding photos of the girls getting ready, as well as the wedding ceremony and reception held at the Palais in Semaphore. It was a beautiful ceremony with an Asian theme – lots […]

Neil

Neil

This is Neil – a bit of an itinerant, and a friend of a friend. He is a character full of surprises, a collector of all things mechanical or old or retro, or valuable, or just valuable to him… A typical pose – he’s also a chain smoker and a deep thinker…

Caroline

Caroline and Scott

I shot Caroline and Scott’s wedding in January after they were referred to me by a friend. We started with the pre-wedding photos at Caroline’s family home in the hills, to the church ceremony, shots with her grandfather in a nursing home,  to the Botanic Gardens with the wedding party and cars and finally at […]

Benjamin Liew

My mate, Ben

Benjamin Liew is one of my inspirations – he is doing amazing things with his photography, and has won all sorts of awards. I owe him a lot for his time and patience and instruction when it comes to studio photography. This shot was stolen as he was setting up for a studio shoot.

The Boys!

The Boys!

Tim’s Groomsmen – Fabulous guys! All really interesting and diverse characters… lots of fun 🙂

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo and Tim are dear friends who allowed me to photograph their wedding – they had such amazing ideas and the outfits were across between super-retro and ultra funky – it was a fun day, despite the rain! This is Sally-Jo, just after the knot had been tied…

Newborn Lukas - 13 hours old

New blog…

My new photo blog. I hope to post some interesting and engaging stuff in here, so please tell me if it gets boring, or if the photos are crap… I thought a new blog should start with an appropriate image, and what could be more appropriate than a newborn baby!  This is tiny baby Lukas […]
