Engagement photography

. . Melbourne Engagement Photographer I’m always getting asked if I just shoot portraits or if I also do things like engagement photos. Well the answer is yes, I do and I thought I’d share some engagement photos from a lovely Melbourne couple I shot recently. There were so many of these photos that I loved and it was really hard to narrow it down, so sorry there’s quite a bit of scrolling to be done! We spent the whole day going to various locations that meant something to them. Starting off on the Mornington Peninsula at...

New York is ok…I guess…

Lately it seems like all my fancy trendy friends are heading to the big apple, New York city. whenever I ask them why they are going there it’s always the same answers: The culture The SHOPPING The buildings New York does have some pretty amazing architecture, but so does Melbourne! This was taken down just one of the many alleyways here. I love cobblestone, I wish there was more of it because it looks great in photos but I know that it’s not so great for women in heals, so I’ll forgive Melbourne for not having more. If...

Winter Queen Photoshoot

A couple of months ago I did a fashion winter-themed shoot that I have been planning for quite a while. I got some great shots out of it and lucky for you I filmed the whole thing in a series I’m calling “Start To Finish”. Once a week for the next three weeks I’ll be posting a video about how these images were created so you can give it a go yourself! The first video is about how the hair and makeup was created and can be seen here: The second video will be the photoshoot it’s self with lighting diagrams and the...

Sponsored post – Car Hire in the USA

It was my birthday recently, thanks for your present by the way, I use it all the time! But back on to topic, I got the game Gran Turismo 5 and have been completely thrown back into being car-obsessed again. It’s been quite a while since I’ve owned or even driven a car now and I feel like and alcoholic who’s just fallen off the wagon. I LOVE driving and one of the best holidays I ever had was driving across America. Thanks to our friends at Holliday Autos It’s now more affordable than ever to hire your own car for...

How to make a Cinemagraph – the FAST way!

I’ve seen a few way to make cinemagraphs and a few of them involve copying and pasting individual video frames into seperate layers and just doing things in really round about ways. Photoshop CAN work with video now, you just need to import and then export it in a specific format and it’s MUCH faster. So enjoy this video on how to make this...

Challenge Accepted! Sydney

So Violet had a photoshoot and interview for an upcoming project and once again we got flown to sydney. Trip from hell. Storms, both flights were delayed, planes stuck on the runway, HUGE taxi rank lines, took nearly 2 hours to get from the hotel lobby to our room at 2 am and then had to be up at 6am, no breakfast etc. etc. Typical for us, every time we got to sydney it’s a disaster. Something about that city really hates us. But the BEST part of the trip was the photoshoot! Full production number with MUA’s, hair stylists, set...

Black And White Photos From The Suzuki Night Market

I’ve always seen advertisements for the Suzuki Night Markets on facebook, at the Queen Victoria Markets, in Melbourne brochures all over the place actually, but I’ve never thought to actually go until a friend of mine went and said the food was great. Being a lover of food I thought to myself, “Hey self, we gotta get in on that”. We missed it last week because…I forget, but last night we finally made it! I was also recently given a bunch of issues of Black And White Photography magazine by Violets’ dad...
