I was drawn last year by an amazing artist Fiona Buchanan. I had forgotten I had this on my computer so thought I would share her talent. This was for the Black Swan Awards. Great work and would I be so bold as to say “great subject matter” hehe

I like this one. The model was shot in front of a dark grey backdrop and the scene I dropped her into was from the ruins at Port Aurthur in Tasmania.

Two new shots from my recent shoot for Miss La La. Having a ball experimenting with this sort of work.
Taken on the Phase one IQ180, the dream machine.

today I finally found some time to set up my studio again. I had the Danish wonder boy Flembot down so we messed around tweaking lights before the family came down to pose. This shot was just a quick work up over lunch with Flemming. A yummy lunch too, crumbed squid, sushi and salad. Nothing but the best at The Fletcher Resort. Didn’t get the compositing right, my daughter still looks dropped in, but given time I’m sure I could make it better. This sort of work really throws up some photoshop challenges that I just love.

Just got off a ride this morning and thought what the hell, may as well shoot myself in full riding gear, girls keep your tongues in, I know you can’t resist a man in lycra. Turned on the lights, set the auto timer in the Phase and wasted lots of mega pixels trying to make myself look Kool. Unfortunately I look like a Tool but I am at an age now where I just don’t give a sh1t. I’m thinking now that a gopher isn’t so embarrassing after all. Can’t wait to get one, will have to bomb it with some tunes and a whippy aerial complete with fox tail!
Shot using that cool backlighting technique. Enjoying this work, might have to take the lights into the landscape soon. And mothers if you would like your kids photographed I am happy to do it for $2k a pic. Yes if you are going to make me suffer I want to be compensated for it! Don’t think I will be getting much work!
Notice I cut my guts out of the shot to maintain a G rating! Ok bring on the jokes, I can take it!

more pics for Noahs mum. This is a re-edit of the same image. Now if only my kids could sit still without pulling a face for 30 seconds I could get some shots of them. The print of this from the IQ180 is something to behold. It is soooo sharp and soooo detailed. Hmmmm could i do portraits again???

Good to get the lights out and have some fun again. Unfortunately that means the cars don’t have a garage any more. Will be getting some new studio space soon. This is a pic of my sons mate. Thought I would knock something up for his parents. Still refining the process but enjoying the editing.
This one is of my lovely wife.

Ok just when you thought you were sick of portraits here is another! I must say it is nice to shoot different stuff. I enjoy the altered landscapes too as they challenge you and it all teaches you something about getting better images. I think the more varied your work the great the improvement you will have. Makes sense really.
