Waratah’s Carlton Draught

Here are some images for a Carlton Draught / Waratah’s promotion. The final imagery may look simple, but sight unseen is the considerable effort in makeup lighting and post production work.

To achieve the ideal lighting on both elements of the image. The hand/arm image elements were captured separately to the beer shots. In the case of the schooner we had to modify and blend in an existing glass shot with the hand holding a “dummy glass”.

commissioning agency: The Zoo.

Cameron’s Great Shave

Studio Commercial photographer Cameron Ramsay has been brave and took part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave. Play our stop motion (people also call it time lapse) video below to check the hard proof. If you’d like to sponsor Cameron go to:

To create a time lapse video, you’re best to connect the camera to an automatic timer which fires a shot at a set interval. You then load the images into your software of choice and add music.

Enjoy the show!

WOW, the year has flown by, now is the time to relax and recharge, enjoy family and friends.

Thanks for your wonderful support this year, we’ve really enjoyed working with you, so roll on 2013!


To help get you in the mood, some nice Christmas quotes…

Edna FerberRoast Beef Medium
Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.

W. J. TuckerPulpit Preaching
For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home.

Andy Rooney
One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.


Our studio will be closing Friday the 21st of December 2012 (just after lunch, pop in for a beverage if you’re nearby!), returning Wednesday the 2nd of January 2013.

Peace out,

Studio Commercial

P.S. We have photographers on call over the break if anything comes up.

P.S.S. Thanks to Morgans Bicycles for the Velorbis we shot for them, not too late to buy one for Christmas!!

Heffron Summer Series Begins

Tuesday the 16th of October heralded the return of the Summer racing series at Heffron Park. With Marcus donning the lycra and representing the studio spirit as well as Randwick Botany Cycle Club.

What better excuse to strap on a camera and get shooting!

Beautiful day for a mud bath!

Last weekend Pieter and myself headed off to cover the latest “Tough Mudder” obstacle course event in Glenworth Valley, about 80km north of Sydney.

The first obstacle was just the battle to get there…. with over 12500 people and a one lane dirt road into the venue it took what seemed like an eternity to travel the last 5km from the freeway exit.

We were there to get shots of “The world’s Toughest Tax return” where Rob Emphrams would file his Tax return whilst participating in the event using a Panasonic Toughbook laptop.

From an observers point of view, the course was every bit as tough as the course organisers would have you believe, and even dirtier than I could have imagined.

At one point  near the end  of the course, the scene looked like a sea of muddy zombies emerging from the grave, and I’m certain many of the competitors felt the part too.


Impressively the laptop did survive the punishment and Rob was able to file his return electronically.
