Wedding Photography Brisbane

A Wedding on an Alpaca farm

By | 0 Comments

Sometimes you just know that a photo-shoot is going to be amazing. For me, it was the first moment that I drove down Mark and Sam’s country driveway near the Sunshine Coast. I had a bit of a photographer “moment “where the scenery just took my breath away. Did I mention that it was on their Alpaca farm? Wow! I’m…

Better late than never photoshoots

By | 0 Comments

Matt and Mel have a wedding coming up in a couple of months and *gasp* still haven’t done their engagement photoshoot. There is no way I was going to let that happen, or err… not happen!   Engagement shoots are a great opportunity to get to know your wedding photographer in advance as well as a chance to try out…

Surviving a trip to Noosa

By | 0 Comments

Oh, Noosa, you’re such a gorgeous place to visit. The truth is that I’ve never really enjoyed visiting Noosa on a weekend during the daytime. Weekends and any major events can mean absolute gridlock hell. But that is where I will end my complaints about Noosa. My trip to visit “The Fairy Pool” changed my mind completely today. Plan A was…

Slaughter Falls in the rain

When the falls are falling

By | 0 Comments

My holidays are almost finished and being stuck in the house isn’t my favourite option right now. So when it started raining in Brisbane I knew that it was time to revisit Slaughter Falls at Mt Cootha. Back in my blog last year, I went there for an explore but it was dry and the waterfall only runs when it…

Scouting new places – Buderim Falls

By | 0 Comments

Fighting the urge to stay inside today, I decided that it was time for a proper adventure and it was time to escape the city.  Researching waterfalls has become all-consuming for me. The top of the list for my next visit was Buderim Forest Waterfall because not only did all the pictures I saw online look amazing, it appeared to…

It can’t rain all the time

By | 0 Comments

OK, so I borrowed the title of this blog from the wise words of Eric Draven (See also The Crow) but after so long without rain, this week feels like it is just going to rain and then rain some more. It was one of those “Seemed like a good idea at the time” things with the rain clearing but…

A new year of storms in Brisbane

By | 0 Comments

Happy new year ! Along with the oodles of photography I have planned to share with you this year I am going to be capturing some time-lapse footage and posting that up as well. I’ve now had my gopro for a couple of weeks and I’m pretty confident that I know my way around it. That’s right, even the tech-nerds…

The storms will roll right in…

By | 1 Comment

I’ve been tinkering with some photography on the side for a while now but nothing worth getting excited about… Until today that is ! Today started out like most typical Sub-Tropical Brisbane summer days. Hot, sticky, oppressive and muggy. I headed into the city for a photo walk (photos coming later) and my car is in the shop for some…

Brisbane from Coottha Panorama

Looking down over Brisbane

By | 0 Comments

Lately, I’ve been a bit frazzled from work and I’ve had a couple of days annual leave to get out and get some sun and remember how to breathe again. Today, I had some places to be and people to see and when it was all done, I headed out to the Airport for some plane spotting with my new…

Brisbane Looking West Sunset

West before the storm

By | 0 Comments

Just a quick one this afternoon, The clouds were looking pretty moody over Mount Coot-tha so I snapped an 8 image panorama and stitched it all together. I love the contrast of the TV transmitter towers against the sky a lot. Storms are supposed to be coming in from the South-West tonight so it all seemed to make an interesting…

Decaying Zombie

Brisbane and the Zombie Horde

By | 8 Comments

Today was the annual Brisbane Zombie walk at Roma Street Parklands. I clearly remember hearing from a work colleague circa 2010 about masses of people dressed up as the undead and wandering the city and was in love with the idea. I must admit though, that I have been very slack going to one of these events before. It was with…

Brisbane Full Moon 16.10.2016

You just got mooned!

By | 0 Comments

So, that new lens that I splashed out on yesterday has come in handy already. The term “super telephoto” does it absolutely zero justice. That’s right, it is a huge full moon tonight. Because I’m keeping with the “lazy” theme, I even captured this image on a tripod on my bedroom carpet through the window glass because I was too…

Sunrise with Tia

By | 0 Comments

About five years ago, I grew tired of taking photos of landscapes and still life and decided that it was time to challenge myself by working with people instead. It is a whole different world. Apart from the obvious lens and camera requirements you need to learn how to do your job (take photos) while directing what is going on…

Making Sauerkraut is Easy

By | 0 Comments

I took a couple of quick images while I was making a batch of Sauerkraut yesterday. Sauerkraut is a fermented or pickled food made from cabbage. I’m a HUGE sauerkraut fan and it’s other advantage is that it is considered an awesome pro-biotic food which is fantastic for gut health and fixing your gut flora. A lot of people will shy away from…

Sometimes you’ve got to take a few moments out in life. To get down on the floor and hang out with your pets at their eye level. They’ll love you for it. Give them all of your attention. I was lucky enough to be able to do just that with a St Bernard-Labrador mix and a Maremma who are just the best of…

Normanby by Night

By | 0 Comments

No excuses… I’ve been very slack but I’m back into it now. Tonight’s photos were all taken from the Normanby. There was a surprising amount of “bounce” in the bridge I was standing on for the panorama. So much so that my images were mostly out of focus. Every time a car drove over the bridge, the tripod was moving…

Sunshine and Rainbows

This week got away from me a little bit and I’ve been busy booking some photo shoots in for some time really soon. It hasn’t left a whole lot of time for being creative. But when there is a canvas in front of me the camera comes out. An amazingly powerful but small storm cell passed eastwards across the city this afternoon.…

I’ve been doing a lot of night time photography lately and I decided to get some sun shine in today to make this a little more interesting so you don’t all get bored on me. Today we’ll be having a quick look around…

In search of the Perseid Meteor shower 2016

By | 0 Comments

The past 24 hours have been a whirlwind. I’ve wanted to capture the Perseid meteor shower for a long long time now and it was at it’s peak last night. After checking the cloud cover at Skippy Sky I realised that I might be in with a chance to get some long exposures with meteor fireballs trails. As an extremely…

Too much work, not enough play?

By | 0 Comments

So today was the EKKA holiday for us Brisbane folk.  I ended up working to cover the phones to prevent interstate client meltdowns, haha. That will give me a whole day off in Lieu soon to do some TFP work with real people so stay tuned for some “people” photography coming up soon. Tonight, I had a dinner and car club…
