Marcus had his first portrait shoot last week. I have photographed his parents wedding a few years ago and now with Christmas just around the corner, mum thought it would a good idea to have some photographs of Marcus taken whilst he was still in his nappies. We chose a small area in the park surrounded by natural bushland as the perfect backdrop. Continue reading article →

I’ve known the Clay family for a while now. I had the pleasure of shooting their wedding when I first started and they are a great couple to be around with. When I got the Instant Message that they were ready for their first family shoot with their newborn, I couldn’t have been more excited. We decided to head down to Darook Park at Cronulla. It’s a beautiful quiet area with a park and small beach. A perfect backdrop for this type of shoot.
Now for the two Fuji X cameras. The XE2 and the Xpro 1. I have nothing but praise for these CSC. They’re light, focus is snappy for its class and the lenses I used (35 1.4, 23 1.4 and the 55-200) were tack sharp and rendered colours and tone beautifully. This is pretty much my go to kit for these type of shoots and I will definitely begin using these on my wedding jobs. Yes they are that good. Continue reading article →
After I photograph the wifey last week I also managed to do another portrait of my mate Bob whom I’ve known for a few years. The type of shoot I had in mind was going to be different to how I photographed the wife. I wanted to evoke masculinity or what I like to say when I photograph my grooms during a wedding to “GQ it up!”. So for this shoot, shadow played a very important role into shaping the final images. It’s kind of difficult to explain what I mean but luckily there are photos to help explain what I’m trying to say.
Over the small break that I had between Christmas and New Years, I held a mini (micro even?) very informal workshop on photography. It was basically just having fun shooting, discovering techniques, using new tools and re-affirming the basic rules of composition and technical aspects to the beautiful art of photography. In a way it was very interesting teaching photography as It made me realise the amount of knowledge I had accumulated as a wedding and portrait photographer and where my strengths and weaknesses lie.

I love doing portraits. It is such as a stark contrast compared to weddings. With portraits there really are no strict timetable to adhere to. Location options are much more available since we can shoot just about anywhere and nobody looks twice at the portrait subject to be photographed compared to a gorgeous bride and groom.
