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!

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.
Hipsters, a TV Series presented by Samuel Johnson. The series was aired on SBS in March this year. We shot this promotional photography in the local Sydney streets of Newtown for SBS (through March One Agency). Another fun and rewarding shoot, this time with one of Australia’s most likeable TV personalities.
The Beer Kettle is a point of sale promotion that we photographed and retouched for Momentum Worldwide Australia agency.
Another shot that is surprisingly complicated in it’s simplicity and involved quite a few hours of post production.
I’ve also made up an unofficial alternate version without the chalk text.
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.

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.
In this issue of Active Retirees “The Fashion Issue” With the power house duo Nina and Jo from Mahlab Media, we had the pleasure of photographing Australian legend Ita Buttrose for the cover. Ita’s years of media and magazine experience showed as she taught a thing or two during the shoot. Here are the resulting images
Sanctuary Magazine featured a Sydney house we photographed recently. The magazine focuses on sustainable home design. It’s a great read. http://www.sanctuarymagazine.org.au/
