We had a last minute change at a photo shoot and Dave had to fill a talent position, fast.

I think Dave shaving without complaint shows his commitment to the Studio, he managed to avoid a razor for two years but only spilt a couple of tears when he was told his hair would have to go.

Have a great Easter five day holiday fellow Aussies! We look forward to hearing stories of your escapades.

This was my first time assisting at a food shoot.

I fell head over heels in love when Cherie, the food stylist offered us “mineral water with lemon barley cordial and mint” as we stepped through the door.

It was fantastic to see people getting excited about cooking good produce. For each dish, we spent an hour perfecting the shot: adding herbs and sauces, taking away an almond sliver or adding crushed pepper.

Finally, after photographing the food at it’s best, we got to eat it. I may have pigged out.

The thing I enjoyed about this shoot was that it was natural. Everyone was down to earth and relaxed. There was no glycerine nor dry ice.

It was just honest, fresh food prepared with love.

And you can never go wrong with that.

The Grand Designs project we photographed has won two Astras. Woohoo! A big thanks to Dynamix for working with us on this project.

We’re compiling a FAQ with some of common questions people ask us while on shoots or through email.

Is there anything you always wanted to know about commercial photography, the studio, running a creative business or even just a question about any of our photographers?

Leave a comment and we’ll include it in the page. Alternatively, ask an anonymous question using FormSpring.
