and the rain comes down

Ok, dont get me wrong, this rain is great, but we are supposed to be moving the studio today and its pouring. We spent all day yesterday moving, and finally knocked off about nine last night and fell into an exhauted sleep. When we woke it was raining, and evidently had been all night. My car, which I had parked conveniently close to the doors to unload, was now sitting in an inch of mud. I tried to reach it in my thongs and pyjamas and got stuck in the mud, which my new neighbours thought was quite hilarious. The car fared no better, we had to get it towed out. The poor thing looks like she has spent a week at a rally driving course.

So we are now out of Martin Street and not really living anywhere, as the new house is not quite finished. By that I mean we currently have no hot water, no drive way, no clothes line and no air conditioning, so I am moving in with my mother-in-law.

In the midst of all this chaos, the new place is a total shambles but still manages to look great.

So this is my last post before I unplug my trusty computer. ( Sob... no internet for about a week! ) This means my web site will be down and I will be unable to answer any emails for a while.

Our new address is 72 Jack Avenue. The phone numbers are the same.

Bye for now! See you all in the new place!

erwin and chin chin's post wedding shoot

It was a beautiful day, but it was so hot! We had it set for five and then pushed it back till six thirty so it would be a bit cooler but it didn't make much difference, it was still hot. On the way home the temperature thingie at the club said it was still 28 degrees, and that was at eight o'clock at night. But it was a great shoot, we had some fun chasing the ducks around ( erwins idea! ) and playing with lens flair ( my idea ). They are such a cute couple. And we had gelatissimo!

melbourne urban texture

While in Melbourne I grabbed a couple of shots of urban stuff, that just doesnt seem to be here in Wagga. And of course I did some shopping with the little time I had left over.

the melbourne yervant experience

I went to Melbourne to do a wedding workshop with yervant, one of the top wedding photographers in the world. What a learning experience. We got to do a shoot in Melbourne with three gorgeous brides in their beautiful gowns. I was so nervous to start I didn't shoot anything! I just watched the rest of the group but I learnt a lot from that too.

One of the many things I love about yervants work is his choice of locations, he proves time and time again that a great location is not all about a fabulous park and a fountain. Its about the texture and the colour, but most of all its about the light and making the bride and groom look fabulous.
Hello to all the photographers I met from all over the world. How cool would it be if someone in America or Canada was reading my blog!
A big thank you to Yervant and Anie for being so fabulous and sharing so much, it was truly inspirational!

And thanks to Tanya for letting me pick her brain on numerous topics ( usually while she was trying to eat her lunch )

away from the 11th till the 19th

I have a great oppurtunity to go to Melbourne ( one of my favourite places ) and do a wedding seminar with Yervant, one of the best wedding photographers in the whole wide world. So I will be away from Sunday the 11th of Feb to Sunday the 18th of Feb and will be back in the studio on the 19th. I wont be able to check emails or take any phone calls while I am at the seminar, so please understand I am not ignoring you, just taking great steps to improve my wedding photography!

symmone, james, brendan and matthew

I got to work with some great kids and some great locations. Even if the boys did goof off a bit! And I got sunburnt driving over there.

And because they asked me so nicely, here is the slideshow.

How lucky am I? I get to photograph gorgeous little boys like this. Check out those baby blues!

The slideshow


Little Oscar was twenty five days old and so adorable. We did this shoot fairly late in the day and he was just quite happy to lay about and have all the adults make faces at him.

And now for the slideshow
