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.

In December last year, I had a shoot for NRG Strength Bands. High profile NRL players spent the day at the studio: Todd Carney, Sam Thaiday, Ben Hannant, Mitchell Pearce and Ben Barba.
We had an outline of how the client wanted to display the product and we also created improv images.
The day before Dave and I did some lighting tests, then spent an hour before the shoot fine tuning the glowing, edgy look we were trying to achieve.
We designed the lighting style specifically for the shoot and used image treatment afterwards to give a gritty, tough look. I also added contrast in post-production. It took about half an hour to edit each image, which I was quite happy about.
It was a really interesting visual project.

We went out for a late lunch of yum cha and beer. Happy birthday Jas!
I had heaps of fun giving orders from my comfortable chair to our Managing Director, Jason, during this shoot. This was the first photo shoot I was involved with after breaking my hip earlier this year. I’ve been doing alot of retouching so it was great to take control of a shoot.
We had a great cocktail stylist on site, which made the whole day a breeze.
