This is one of my favourite photos I’ve captured this year. It was shot at Terrigal Beach, where I spend many mornings and an occasional afternoon walking, talking and coffee shopping with Linda… my number one. This photo was uncommissioned, wasn’t shot on one of my professional cameras and there are
Talk about freezing! This was not a good day for a portfolio photography shoot where we were hoping to go for a “summery” feel. Kass was looking to add to her portfolio and as an an experienced model wanted to introduce her boyfriend Beau to the idea.
With the date and time locked in and busy schedules, there was no choice but to go ahead with the shoot at the Newcastle Baths. Lucky for Kass and Beau, this wasn’t a swim suit shoot which was also happening at the same time and location. And who says modelling isn’t a tough job!
As a first try at this modelling gig, Beau did
“Are you ok if I take a couple of photos while you fish?” I asked who I found out later to be Murph, a definite and obvious local at Tathra Wharf on the far South Coast of NSW. The other fishermen knew him by name and although none of them had much to say to each other, there seemed to be a definite
Work calls to say you don’t need to come in today, have the day off. Would you still go in? I’m guessing no. I’m also guessing that’s why I’m so damn lucky to be doing what I love to do for work.
I had a wedding booked last Saturday. The wedding was cancelled close to the
I don’t want to write another blog post all about the importance of family photos, what they mean once you have them, what they will mean in the future… I’ve said it all before and you’ve probably heard it all before.
I thought instead, I’d share a few photos from a
I had to share some of these photos of my little nephew Luca after wrangling my brother and his wife from the Norther Beaches to experience a Central Coast portrait photography session amongst the rocks and puddles at Terrigal. I’m so glad I had the chance to capture these photos, especially after harping on about
The following article is a guest post by Carolyn who recently experienced a portfolio photography session after reaching her amazing fitness goals. From the first phone call it was evident this was going to be a great and fun shoot – Carolyn had very specific ideas in regard to style of images, fashion and photography locations or sets for each of the looks she was after.
There is much more to the story than the photography session, here’s Carolyn to fill you in on her journey.
Everyone needs something to motivate them and a goal to achieve. After all that’s what life is about…
For me, being a busy working Mum with three kids, getting fit was always going to be a

I received a phone call from a budding wedding and portrait photographer, Jill, (name changed for privacy) last week asking for some advice. It was easy to hear that she was a little nervous in the beginning but relaxed as we chatted. What surprised me most, was Jill’s last statement – which lead me to my offer below.
I loved the quirkiness of this little family portrait photography session. Mum and Dad vowed not to be in any photos and hadn’t…

Here is a little family shoot awaiting collection from the studio. I was just looking through the ordered prints and here are the images that Shari and Abe chose of their little darlings.
This morning I had the pleasure of joining my Mum and Dad for their early swim at Mona Vale baths – something they religiously do each day and I’m so glad I had my camera with me. I’m pretty sure this is where they are both at their happiest and I was there to record a little of that happiness.
Following a proposal in Paris while on a dinner cruise along the Seine in full view of the Eiffel Tower, Elliot and Jess are destined for a life of romance and good times and the engagement shoot was proof of that.
I’ve know Shayne for 25 years (gosh, that make me feel old) and together we’ve been each others bridesmaids and watched our kids grow up.
Yesterday afternoon I was asked to capture some images of Jenny – a Central Coast ‘Body Sculpting’ competitor after just returning from a successful 4th place in the Universe titles at Brisbane on the weekend. Chatting to Jen through the shoot it was clear that it is a tough sport and takes some serious dedication.
Last month I was commissioned to capture a number of images of Jo Heighway to accompany her entry into the Telstra Business Woman Of The Year award of which she has now been announced as a finalist.
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph one of the country’s leading young business women and she’s based right here on the Coast – Jo Heighway, a chartered accountant and super fund auditor at SMSF Outsource Solutions. The photography was to a strict brief for an upcoming award of which Jo is a major finalist and had to show her in a professional environment and be more than a ‘simple’ head shot.

A good mate of mine, Troy, had only ever had his children photographed by shopping centre studios and when he mentioned that Jill was keen to get some photos of their youngest daughter, Mena, and was looking at the the same style of photography they had experienced in the past I twisted their arm into trying something different with me this time round.
