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

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

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.

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.

This shoot was for our friends at March One Advertising Agency. The concept was by the senior designer Dan Crozier (the guy in the middle). 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.

Since returning to work after baby number 2, I have mostly been concentrating on the admin side of things at the studio, living vicariously through the boys as they continue to do some amazing photography work. Having said that: 


pinksunactive-1I recently had the great pleasure of working with Lienke de Bruin, the brains behind Activewear Brazil.
Already a supplier of high quality workout apparel made in Brazil, and being the entrepreneur that she is, Lienke decided she wanted more than what was on offer. So she did what any mother of 2 young boys would do, she decided to start her own label! The amazing result is the newly launched label Pink Sun. Designed in Australia and made in Brazil using the innovative sportswear fabric Supplex, Pink Sun is a refreshing combination of colourful prints & high quality gear, now available to the global market.

We had a fun day in the studio, working with gorgeous model Dani Bonnor. Shooting all of the amazing garments on a white background made the clothing to really pop and allowed for greater flexibility with graphic design post-production.

I loved working with Lienke, applaud her determined hard work, and wish her every success.

Thanks for reading, Vanessa.
