Active Retirees – Ita Buttrose

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.

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.

Champagne Jacquart on Board Qantas

Doing business can be thirsty work, and for those flying Qantas international Business, Champagne Jacquart will be offered on flights from mid April 2015. Studio Commercial was commissioned to shoot some publicity shots to celebrate this new partnership.


Blog about a Blogger

Here’s a little Blog about the business behind blogging. Will Blunt commissioned  us to produce some banner and profile imagery for his business “Blogger Sidekick”. He was looking to capture some fresh, vibrant and natural imagery that matched in with his branding. We think the shots came up nicely. Blogger sidekick has some great advice for businesses wishing to have a greater online presence so pop on over and have a look.

Cheers, Cameron.



This shoot is a classic example of the quintessential corporate assignment. The brief was to photograph Karen Lonergan, Qantas International’s Executive Manager of HR on location at Qantas HQ Mascot. Images were destined for the cover and inside spread of the August edition of “Human Resources Monthly”. The newly completed Qantas offices offered some great photographic backgrounds which is always a nice starting point for a photographer and Karen herself was comfortable in front of the lens which also helped the shoot run smoothly.  I was really pleased with some solid imagery to illustrate the article, hope you agree 😉

Rebranding your business

Rebranding can be a daunting task for any business. Your marketing person or team will most likely want to arrange photography and this is where we can help.

Collecting examples you like and doing a test shoot are good ways to achieve great results. Consider whether you only need profile pictures of your staff or if “scenario” shots are also desirable. Other options would be photographs of the board or of the exterior / interior of your workplace.

Best would be to plan the photography well ahead of schedule so that staff get enough notice to block out their time slot, go to the hair dresser etc..

The most cost effective way is to organise all photography over the same day or over several consecutive days. This will not only be more cost effective, but will also avoid disruption on the work floor over several sessions rather than doing the work over one or two shooting days.

Don’t forget to ask your photographer for advice on how to go about a photoshoot. We are more than happy to help to make run things as smoothly as possible.

We took the pictures below for a company that wanted to veer away from formal profile pictures to a more casual and relaxed feel. We photographed about 110 employees across four days.
