Corporate portraits can be cool

This series was photographed for REA Group. I shot over 150 portraits and it included staff from the CEO to the folks in the call centre, from the coolest nerds in the world who build the Group’s websites to the shiny Sales folk.

REA Group is proof that large multinationals can be cool.

A backyard wedding

Not just any backyard wedding, the perfect backyard wedding.

Wendy & Rob were married in August. In near impossible to find August sunshine.

One fine day in Abbotsford, a boy rowed his girl down the Yarra…

This job was honestly in my top three working highlights for the year.

When Alex asked me to photograph his proposal to his now-fiance Mel, he had been planning this event for a long time.

It started 6 months earlier when he purchased a run-down vintage row boat and proceeded to refurbish it in the kitchen of their home.
During that time, he had friends video ‘a day with Alex and Mel’ under the guise of it being for a tourism tv show.
Alex also registered the domain name melsaidyes.com and built a website to host said video.

Yes, I looked like a creepy weirdo in the bushes.

Yes, Mel was concerned and mentioned the weirdo in the bushes taking photos of them to Alex while out on the boat.

But, I was forgiven (see the third last photo) when Alex finally explained the months of planning that were all for her (and that the creep in the bushes was a hired creep in the bushes).

Portraits of property dreams

I love portraiture. I love businesses who embrace real portraits.

REA Group, owner of Australia’s no.1 real estate portals realestate.com.au and realcommercial.com.au commissioned a series of portraits of business owners to illustrate their business purpose of helping people live their property dreams. These are my favourites so far.

Rich Davies & the Devil’s Union

Fun with Rich Davies & the Devil’s Union aka Rich Davies, John Guscott, Alex Hunter, Lauren Taffe, Rob McDowell, Cam Ewart & Bek Chapman down at Elwood beach on a very chilly June morning. Very chilly, very early June morning.
All I can say is bands are sooks when it comes to the cold. But Mr. McDowell was by far the biggest ;-) Big ups to Eryn for assisting on the shoot.
