KONE Elevators

KONE Elevators are on the up… (yes I’m not fond of newspaper style headlines either but there you have it). An interesting shoot none the less for Kone Australia brochures.

 

 

Dr Karl photoshoot

In studio with the lovely duo of Nina and Jo at Mahlab for Active Retirees magazine. We were all looking forward to this shoot for weeks. After years of tuning into Triple J every Thursday to hear the man himself, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki talk all things science, I had the pleasure to photograph him!!! ūüėÄ

The energy Dr Karl brought to the shoot was amazing, he’s one of the nicest and most energetic people we’ve had the pleasure of photographing. Dr Karl is THE trivia night secret weapon, we all felt considerable more knowledgeable following the shoot after listening to countless stories on any subject that came up! Here are a few of the resulting images –

‚Ķ and what better way to finish a shoot than with a team shot ūüėČ

The ENGLISH

We‚Äôve known Zak at Skunkworks Bikes for quite a few years and we always look forward to shooting his special creations (normally over a cool beverage after hours).  Having said that, Zak specialises in high end, light and fast bike and wheel builds using high quality parts with meticulous attention to detail, so all of his customers bikes are indeed special creations.  This English is Zak‚Äôs personal bike and gets used daily, the steel & carbon frame and saddle were custom made for his measurements and all parts hand picked to be a truly one off build.  If you crave beauty such as this (and who doesn‚Äôt!), get in contact with Zak. @skunkworks_bikes

The story behind a photoshoot (pt 2)

Even with a detailed brief, it’s often hard to pick which shot will be chosen by an editor and end up on the cover. In this case we had plenty of opportunity to capture many options for the client to choose from and they were really happy with what we came back with.

“Thank you again, we are so happy for the results of the shoot. It is tough to go online and pick a great photographer and company, I feel truly blessed to have found you!

Lynnette Rogers
Art Director”

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.

Brewster Murray Architects – new website photography

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.

Zala Hair Extensions Before & After Shoot

We recently completed a series of¬†before and after shots for Zala hair extensions. It was really interesting to see the transformation the extensions and a bit of make up had on the models overall look, you wouldn’t even think it was the same girl!¬† We had to try and match the look of the images with existing¬†website images and make sure we got the colour of the extensions correct.

It was a fun shoot with plenty of people buzzing around in the studio from models to hair and makeup artists.

The extra behind the scenes photos are from Zalas Facebook page.

The Salvation Army

salvation army

This photoshoot commissioned by the Salvation Army is designed to show the heritage of their organisation. The subjects are real Salvation Army officers that have been photographed separately. The background was supplied and the lighting on the subjects had to match this. Studio flashes were filtered through coloured gels to achieve the same tones found in the background. The advertisement was used across different print media included magazines, light boxes and Sydney buses.

The image features the staff of the agency and was used in the Promax awards magazine. Promax is a global community of professionals in the marketing and promotional television industry. If you have a concept that you want to bring to life, the Studio Commercial team can make it a reality.
