On location in The Rocks, Sydney for Forsyth Property. Photographer Dave Silva limbers up to get the right angle. Sydney has some amazing hidden gems that are perfect for location photography.
The NIBA Gazette is an industry magazine that Studio Commercial have been supplying photographic content to for quite some time. The subjects are asked to bring a prop or item that is representative of themselves outside of the work environment. It is always a good fun shoot for all involved, especially as we are able to showcase a wide variety of interests, the personality of the brokers and have a laugh whilst doing so.
We have been commissioned to shoot for Shelta Australia Outdoor Furniture on a number of occasions over the years. This time around we utilised three separate houses around Sydney as our backdrop. I’ve always found it to be a fun and professional shoot that showcases our ability to take on and deliver on a diverse range of assignments.

This shoot is a classic example of the quintessential corporate assignment. The brief was to photograph Karen Lonergan, Qantas International’s Executive Manager of HR on location at Qantas HQ Mascot. Images were destined for the cover and inside spread of the August edition of “Human Resources Monthly”. The newly completed Qantas offices offered some great photographic backgrounds which is always a nice starting point for a photographer and Karen herself was comfortable in front of the lens which also helped the shoot run smoothly. I was really pleased with some solid imagery to illustrate the article, hope you agree 😉
HRM is published by Mahlab Media, art directed by Garry Humphrys.
Since returning to work after baby number 2, I have mostly been concentrating on the admin side of things at the studio, living vicariously through the boys as they continue to do some amazing photography work. Having said that:
I recently had the great pleasure of working with Lienke de Bruin, the brains behind Activewear Brazil.
Already a supplier of high quality workout apparel made in Brazil, and being the entrepreneur that she is, Lienke decided she wanted more than what was on offer. So she did what any mother of 2 young boys would do, she decided to start her own label! The amazing result is the newly launched label Pink Sun. Designed in Australia and made in Brazil using the innovative sportswear fabric Supplex, Pink Sun is a refreshing combination of colourful prints & high quality gear, now available to the global market.
We had a fun day in the studio, working with gorgeous model Dani Bonnor. Shooting all of the amazing garments on a white background made the clothing to really pop and allowed for greater flexibility with graphic design post-production.
I loved working with Lienke, applaud her determined hard work, and wish her every success.
Thanks for reading, Vanessa.
As much as “we” the Studio Commercial photographers crowd our blog with pictures that ooze imagination, colour & creativity, there is none the less a big calling for the clean and simple.
Canon Cameras has run a campaign for a number of years with the slogan “Advanced Simplicity” this featured just a single camera on a blank white page… the power of this approach is not to be underestimated.
In a similar way a corporate headshot on white can offer, in an instant, a concise and un-distracted view of “the voice at the other end of the phone” this brings the viewer face to face with a real person. Quick, simple and cost effective.
Jason picked up this little gem of boutique Skillogalee Muscat whilst touring the wine country in South Australia. We thought that the beautiful form of the bottle would be a great piece to shoot as a still life. Being an uncomissioned work this gave me the scope to play around with a few props of my choosing and put this photograph together to create a complimentary look and feel. Hope you like it 😉 Cameron Ramsay.
