perks of shooting for Curly Flat vineyard

This week I’m shooting for Curly Flat vineyard, another tricky job with all that reflecting glass, but someone’s gotta do it! In my opinion one of the best chardonnay’s around.

Happy days in Langkawi Malaysia

Frangipani resort in Langkawi, Malaysia is such a lovely laid back resort on the beach, that the 3 days we spent there rejuvenated, relaxed our bodies and cleared our minds for weeks afterwards.

perks of food photography

I love shooting food, but I love it even more when the staff come in and finish it off. No waste at this shoot at Red Spice Road Qv in Melbourne for chef John Mcleay’s upcoming new book Road to QV.

I was getting my lighting ready for a bento box shoot for the lovely restaurant Red Spice Road in Melbourne and used the props to practise, the images that I had gotten really struck me for their simple beauty. Hope you agree?
