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!
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.
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.
Working with the agency Dynamix, we had a great deal of fun on this photoshoot for the Paypal free return shipping promotion. During the shoot there was a great deal of role playing happening on set, under the pretext that our subject hadn’t quite got their online shopping order right.
As much as “we” the Studio Commercial photographers crowd our blog with pictures that ooze imagination, colour & creativity, there is none the less a big calling for the clean and simple.
Canon Cameras has run a campaign for a number of years with the slogan “Advanced Simplicity” this featured just a single camera on a blank white page… the power of this approach is not to be underestimated.
In a similar way a corporate headshot on white can offer, in an instant, a concise and un-distracted view of “the voice at the other end of the phone” this brings the viewer face to face with a real person. Quick, simple and cost effective.
