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.
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.

Watch it. It’ll be four minutes well spent.
