Catalogue Photography


 We just completed a huge shoot with Cotton Diva for their 2015 catalogue and media releases, Two full days of shooting and then over 400 images to edit.  They are long days but they always go very smoothly due to the efforts of a great team. Firstly organizing every detail and having a very refined plan to follow right down to what shoes, accessories, hair style, lipstick etc are going with what outfit.  Then on the day setting out the  clothes in order of that plan, Timing is crucial and every one has there part to play. Sometimes that means 10 people in the room all with different jobs to do. Its like a well oiled machine. We like to talk about flow here, its all about peaceful flow.. well most of the time anyway..


Product Photography



 Today I spent the  morning with Sue Daley, Sue is a local Quilt designer, author of many quilting books and is sort after all over the world teaching and holding workshops in the art of quilting.. I have been working with Sue now for 7 or 8 years photographing her beautiful quilts for the front of her pattern covers and media releases with a few other fun projects along the way. Some of her pieces are very large and large art works can be very difficult  shoot.  I am able to photograph them flat on the floor getting high above them from my mezzanine floor.  This makes the process very much quicker and the artwork looks smooth and professional, without lumps and bumps from trying to hang it. 

Large art pieces can be posted or couriered to the studio and we can photograph them and then post them back to you the very next day. This works very well for my Victorian and South Australian clients.

..This is one of the quilts we shot this morning.

Bridal Gown Fashion Photo shoot Noosa Hinterland


                  Bridal Wedding Photography

We had such a clever team of Sunshine Coast artists working on a Bridal photoshoot in Studio 417 last week. There was lots of wow moments when Marilyn Crystelle  from Marilyn Crystelle Bridal  of Noosa came in with her beautiful wedding gowns.
Another Noosa talent, Andy Roache from Andy Hair and Makeup of Noosa made our models look so radiant and flawless.
The two gorgeous models Pearl Howlett-Lee and Kayla Pears, Kayla from Asha Model Management of Caloundra. The White Magnolia from Perigain supplied the beautiful wedding bouquets in naturals and pink, and Sandra from Sandra Faye Photography in the Noosa Hinterland worked her magic to get a beautiful romantic poise in her photography. Our beautiful swing was a little touch of love and many hands helped to create the final whimsical result.
