Seem to be spending a lot of time these days in and around hospitals – but for all the right reasons! I have a long history working in the medical field and am continually amazed at the advancements in procedures and equipment.
Is it my love of food that makes it so enjoyable to photograph beautifully presented dishes? Or that I think I might get the opportunity to eat some of the product? Not that the food is always edible. Working with a stylist to get the best possible image for reproduction can mean the dish is not fit for human consumption!
My obsession with cycling has led me to work with Phil Sheppard (another mad cyclist) and the team at Creative Analytics. The name Creative Analytics may not sound sexy but this is an amazingly interesting business. At any given time the software developed by this company allows you to see the amount of power being generated through coal, wind and solar farms.
Been back working with the people from the Melbourne Entertainment Book for the launch of this years edition. Its been great fun photographing some fantastic locations including the Grand Hotel Richmond, Becco in Crossley Street
Melbourne, Luna Park, and even McDonald’s!
Melbourne’s historic Luna Park at St. Kilda was the location for a great photographic shoot.
The actors, representing a typical family having fun at this iconic venue, were great to work with. Although they had not worked together previously the kids did an excellent job, taking direction really well and making my job as photographer a joy.
The recent shoot I did at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadrons’ new facilities involved many of the skills I have developed in the area of fresh food photography.
Liaising with the client to meet their expectations of course is of particular importance, but also is creating the correct light to play off the food and tabletop items. Collaboration with the stylist is essential and I was fortunate to work with a great stylist – Melanie Quirk from On Q Events & PR.
I also had great support from Chris Livaditis the House Manager,
Nicky Petzke Functions Coordinator and of course the food from the kitchen of Barry Davis, Head Chef.
It was a long day but the results were fantastic.

This is an outstanding and unique reception venue. Shaun McKenna from Image Eight Wedding Photography is delighted to be a part of the exciting developments at BYS and looking forward to a season of weddings and celebrations at this beautiful venue on the Mornington Peninsula.
Each time a do a shoot for Pepper Constructions I find their attention to detail is outstanding!
Having completed extensive photography displaying their home extensions, renovations and home builds over many years I am always impressed with their professionalism and collaborative approach with clients.
This team of professional builders, tradesmen and design staff want positive outcomes at every stage.
I really enjoy photographing their latest creations.
Great to see that Justin Metcalf, World Barista Judge, and one of Australia’s most recognised Coffee and Café consultants has just announced that he is now producing coffee and lifestyles podcasts.
His business was developed to provide café training and to promote the specialty coffee industry in Australia and throughout the world. Concentrating initially on perfecting the skills of the Barista, Justin’s passion led to an active involvement in the speciality roasting industry, where he has established a reputation as a Master Roaster.
The lifestyle podcasts are a excellent way for Justin to share some of his stories of all things coffee and some sporting hobbies as well.
