WOW music video

Back in April 2014 Peter Knight asked me to document the recording of one of his new compositions, Anthony Blaise, for Way Out West. The recording took place at the Allan Eaton Studios in St Kilda which have a lovely patina about them these days.

My challenge was that Peter wanted video, so I shot video on my Nikon D750 after dusting off my notes on shooting video....ahem! 

The results have just been published for us all to see on YouTube: 

My RAW footage has been beautifully edited by Mia Forrest from Brisbane. Perhaps it's a little obviously shoot by a stills photographer (there's no camera movement, so I'll claim Yasujiro Ozu as an influence), but I think it allows the music to provide the movement.

Must post blog....

I'm hopeless at this blogging business. This year my aim is to set aside some time every month to do this....Here's a post that should have gone up a while ago!

Before Christmas I did some work for the ASRC that I wanted to share. This is one of the organisations that I enjoy donating my time for. They entered a number of teams in the Melbourne Marathon and I nearly ran a marathon covering all the activity....


"The Block" Cover

The latest Outdoor Rooms magazine features this image of mine of a courtyard garden designed by Inge Jabara for Channel Nine's The Block.

Usually on film or TV sets there is very little time allocated to stills photography and this was no exception. But with Inge's help styling we managed to get a few nice shots using mostly available light with a little help from the GL-1.

I've included a few of the other images from the shoot for you here as well:


Outdoor Rooms cover

Browsing through the local newsagents' magazine racks a familiar image caught my eye. The cover of Outdoor Rooms magazine featured an image of mine that I had done for Apex Landscapes a little over a year ago.

Designed by Steve Taylor from COS Design, this was a substantial landscaping project in an outer Melbourne suburb that Apex built from scratch. Many of the surrounding properties also had gardens designed by some of the best landscape designers in Victoria.

AIPP Reflections Project

I put my hand up to get involved with the AIPP Reflections Project recently. The project, organised by the AIPP, aims to photograph as many surviving WWII veterans as possible from all over Australia with the ultimate aim of publishing a memorial book to commemorate the 75th anniversary of WWII.

The work was all pro bono with a very specific lighting plot and style guide which involved a single, large light source from camera left with a reflector and grey background. This was necessary so that the portraits from photographers across the country would have a similar look.

The men I got to photograph were all over 90 years old and some needed me to "speak up a bit" when I was directing them from camera, but it was a pleasure to meet and chat to them down at the Williamstown RSL. Here are a few of the pics and I'm looking forward to seeing the final published book.

Landscape Design

Over Autumn I found myself photographing a few interesting residential landscape projects.

The following gallery of images are from various landscape designers including Steve Taylor from COS Design (a client I have worked with for a number of years now) and three new clients, Alison Douglas, from Alison Douglas Design (whose work won its category on her first attempt at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show this year) and Darren Willmott from DJ Landscapes

Three for three....

I'm a little behind in my posts, but it was great to see that my photograph of this pool from Aquarius Pools is on the cover of the March edition of Poolside Showcase magazine.

I think it's worth showing some of the other images from this shoot, so I've included a few of them here.

Two for Two

The latest Poolside Magazine edition features one of my photos from a recent shoot for Elite Pools on the front cover.

That's a cover a month so far this year....I've included a few other images from this shoot below.
