Jeans for Genes Photoshoot

 

We spent a day photographing the loveliest group of kids for the “Jeans for Genes” campaign through Sydney agency March One.

Shooting alongside the film crew from Ideas of Dean who were filming the ad for TV/cinema/web, we took it in turns to photograph/film each child individually and try and capture their wonderful personalities.  Every child that appears in the print ads has a genuine genetic disease, some of them life threatening.

We came away from the day feeling privileged to have met them all, quickly realising that we take so many little things for granted which these kids can’t.  Jeans for Genes Day is coming up on Friday 3rd August (tomorrow!!), please give generously if you can – Jason.

 

 

CEO Photography

Photographing CEO’s and Executives is a Studio Commercial specialty.

A typical photo-brief in this genre, often runs something like this:

 “Capture a range of eye-catching environmental portraits that are both flattering and creative. They should suitable for use across multiple formats and applications such as press releases, websites, and annual reports. Oh, and by the way, our subject only has half an hour available in their schedule!”.  

Clearly, the more time we have, the more options we can explore. But given the trend of underlying urgency, we have developed methods that allow us to maximise whatever we have available. Years of experience have allowed us to arrive at a location and choose the best spots  and bring together creativity, communication, and technical skills.

Often, commissioning a photographer can be a daunting task for the person who’s job it is to do so, especially if they’re new to the role. We’d love to be involved in your project so you can breath easy, safe in the knowledge that you are in the best possible hands.

As my Dad used to say “the proof of the pudding is in the eating” here are some CEO  imagery we have recently captured. We hope you enjoy:) 

  

  

KONE Elevators

KONE Elevators are on the up… (yes I’m not fond of newspaper style headlines either but there you have it). An interesting shoot none the less for Kone Australia brochures.

 

 

Dr Karl photoshoot

In studio with the lovely duo of Nina and Jo at Mahlab for Active Retirees magazine. We were all looking forward to this shoot for weeks. After years of tuning into Triple J every Thursday to hear the man himself, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki talk all things science, I had the pleasure to photograph him!!! 😀

The energy Dr Karl brought to the shoot was amazing, he’s one of the nicest and most energetic people we’ve had the pleasure of photographing. Dr Karl is THE trivia night secret weapon, we all felt considerable more knowledgeable following the shoot after listening to countless stories on any subject that came up! Here are a few of the resulting images –

… and what better way to finish a shoot than with a team shot 😉

Diving Australia – Rio 2016 Australian Olympic Diving Team

I felt quite privileged having the opportunity to photograph the Australian Rio 2016 Olympic Dive Team! Currently representing us in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Melissa Wu, Anabelle Smith, Brittany Broben, Esther Qin, Domonic Bedggood, Kevin Chavez and by no means last Grant Nel were all in studio for an energetic photo session.

With Diving Australia’s CEO, David Bell as art director our aim was to capture strong emotive portraits of the team. The key here was selecting the right lighting that would accentuate the defined muscle tone that these elite athletes have. Here are a bunch of the resulting images, Cheers Dave 🙂

Costa!

01_ACTIVERETIREES_Probus27_OctNov2015_COVER

On location at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens with the power duo Nina and Jo from Mahlab Media, Jas & I had the privilege of photographing Costa Georgiadis from Gardening Australia for the October-November issue of Active Retirees.

The most fun we’ve have had on a shoot in a long time!!!  The energy and life that Costa brought to the shoot was amazing.

We promised Costa that after we finished the shoot, we’d do a few shots of him and his 2 chickens (outside the Gardens), one of which ended up on the cover!

Cheers, Dave.

We’ve started doing creative portraits for the new “People Q&A” section in NIBA‘s Insurance & Risk Professional magazine.  Published by Mahlab Media, Graphic Designer Jack Pike wanted a “Time Magazine” feel for the portraits.  We get about an hour with the subject and have lots of fun exploring different poses, techniques and styles to achieve images that reflect the subject and the theme of the story.

Currently starring in the smash hit musical comedy “Anything Goes”, Caroline O’Connor took time out from her busy schedule to catch up with Journalist Jo-Anne Hui and Art Director Nina Christian from Mahlab Media for an interview and photoshoot for “Active Retirees” magazine.  Always the consummate professional, Caroline was a delight to work with and didn’t hesitate to jump into any pose we required!  A really enjoyable shoot.

Brewster Murray Architects – new website photography

We were recently commissioned by our good friends at Rifle Media to execute the photography for the website re-design of Brewster Murray Architects.  The individual portraits and group shot were done in our Sydney Liverpool Street studios, whilst the staff working shots were done at BMA’s offices.  A very cost effective and enjoyable half day photoshoot produced an abundance & variety of great images to choose from for us to complete the final retouching.
