26/09/15 - Fiji

Well the weather wasn’t as good as it usually is so not as much swimming this trip.  So what else is there for me to do… (besides working, as it is a working holiday!)… I know, lets go for a walk and take some photos!

07/07/15 - Farm

OMG I am in texture heaven!

My parents are farm sitting for some friends… Can I just stay here for ever?!!

Where do I start? What should I do with so many photos? It will take me forever to edit these…hmmmm. Need to come up with some new ways to use these photos. I feel like I'm just taking the same kinds of photos over and over again. I cant help myself, it's like an addiction… arrrrrrr! Maybe I need to research alternative printing techniques or different editing effects.

I get inspired all over again whenever I look at the photos I have taken, but then I need to work out what to do with them all. I think its great to focus on what I love but I also want to evolve as an artist. 

I have been watching early episodes of Supernatural and they have these really cool, harsh and quite contrasty blue tones. Might have a play with  that. What do you think?

08/02/15 - Old Robins Calendar

I had to find some images that I took years ago of exotic Australian fruits and plants for a calendar supporting The Outback Spirit Foundation.  I had forgotten how interesting these photos were.

Its funny how my visual taste has changed over the years and I would probably shoot these differently now.  Maybe a variety of backgrounds with a bit of texture?  Food photography has become so popular now and there are endless ways you can photograph them.  Like on an old chalkboard, or an old table, a granny tea party……bright colours and geometric shapes, anything!

Nevertheless, shooting on the plain white was the brief that was required and I remember I loved it at the time.  Following a client brief is always a challenge, especially if you don’t have the same taste or vision.  That is half the challenge, I always find, and that's what keeps my job interesting.  I must admit,  I do sneak a few extra shots in and most of the time the client ends up using that one!

Anyway, thought I would share these cool shots.

Thanks x

30/01/13 - Surrey Houseware

Had a great job today for Surrey Housewares doing some shot of their paper salad bowls and platters.  What a great idea, don't have to remember your salad bowl when you leave the BBQ or wash it.  Just throw it in the recycle bin.  Available in Coles.

26/01/13 - Australia Day

Yay happy Australia day.
Every year we have a family reunion on Australia day and yes being a photographer you would think that I would have some great candid moments of every one .........well maybe not this year.  Once again distracted by being at the original family house in the bush, with all sorts of old rusty junk lying around.  Texture paradise!
I think every time I am there I see something new and at least 2 images seem to make my calendar each year.
So here are a few from this year

13/01/13 - Calendar 2013

Every year it is such a hard decision to choose only 12 images from all the 1000's of texture, closeup, colourful, crazy abstract photos I take for myself. I do try to choose a variety so here are my picked ones for this year plus a few others I couldn't resist.
xx enjoy
