All Data and Communications Pty Ltd are a local Burpengary based business currently updating their website and subsequently required new headshots of their team members. Tight crop on a plain light background.

As part of my service I am able to offer onsite photography and arrived with my portable background and lights which are quick and easy to set up. With a plain background and professional lighting it is a quick process to work with all staff members to create consistent looking portraits.

Images were reviewed onsite to ensure everyone is happy with their appearance before heading back to edit and deliver in both high and low resolution digital files.

What to do when it rains on your family portrait day | Caboolture Family Photographer

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet
— Roger Miller

Shooting outdoors has an inherent risk of poor weather, I always keep an eye on the weather forecasts in the lead up to the shoot and leave it fairly late if we should cancel or continue.  All week I have been hoping for a dry spell for a family photo shoot that was scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Centenary Lakes.

 Sun-showers and a little bit of rain don’t phase me and it is often the case that when the sun comes back out there is magic in the air, everything is cleansed, the sun is shining - perfect.  Not so much this week, everything has been soaked to the core and unfortunately I had no other option than to postpone the session.

Today I realised that I probably should not let the weather get the best of me, we all love to shoot when the sun is shining and the weather is perfect, but being an outdoor family photographer I am at the mercy of the weather.  Now being stuck in the rain is not everyone’s cup of tea, but maybe I should ask the question and try something more adventurous with my families.  

If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
If you´re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I´m the love that you´ve looked for, write to me, and escape
— ‘Escape’ by Robert Holmes

My resident model was as keen as mustard to get dirty and wet!  A typical 4 year old boy, always ready and willing to splash in some puddles.  So in a park not too far from home, we ventured out in the inclement weather in search of muddy puddles.

Cora Confetti | Burlesque Studio Shoot

 
 
I had a friend doing it and after my operation she thought it would be a good avenue of self-expression for me to try and boost my confidence and allow me to see that you don’t have to be a Barbie to be beautiful.

Over the past few years I have photographed Bryony, her immediate and extended families, a few milestone celebrations, and some Zumba events.  Bryony has recently started performing and learning the art of Burlesque and asked me if I could shoot some portraits.  Naturally I jumped at the opportunity to photograph her in the studio. 

I need ones where I look glamorous and expensive. Not like a cheap stripper basically.

Let’s get to know Cora Confetti

Cora Confetti came as a surprise one day. I was at the chiropractor talking to her about how I’m struggling with my identity because I love burlesque, I love being a school mum, and I love Zumba. I just want to be bits of everything. To which she said “so like confetti?” *insert light bulb moment* and the rest is history.

Still in early stages of act development, Bryony is finding herself as a performer.  She knows she’s not vintage, and not cabaret, but will always have an element of comedy and play in her routines.  Bryony needed portraits done for her classes and performances with Bombshell Burlesque Academy, portraits that captured a variety of looks and showed versatility.

I lean towards bolds and darks. No pink frou frou shit.
 
 

Straight up Bryony was nervous as anything for the photoshoot and was concerned that the photos would not turn out so flattering, after all burlesque is not about being covered up.  There was a last minute decision to bring along a close friend, Kelly, to bring some emotional support and make sure she was looking fabulous.  It was a great thing for Kelly to come along not only for encouragement and extra reassurance, but to help out with wardrobe changes, keeping an extra eye on things, and even becoming my assistant for a few frames. 

 
 

We worked through three wardrobe changes starting with a set of green feather fans, and running through a series of expressions and poses both full length and close up.  Props are great for finding your groove, giving you something to work with and experiment.  Hands are one of the harder body parts to position especially when you are trying to hold out a fan and not look like you are twisting your wrist back on itself.   

Next up we showcased Bryony’s beautiful Mimco neckpiece adorned with pearls, diamantes and feathers.  We mixed up the backlighting for this series to add more of a stage light appearance and still keeping the overall scene dark.  Lastly we freestyled the movements playing with a long green dress with high leg splits, the dress was great for twirling and flicking.

Your instruction on posing was fantastic and you were so easy to work with. So thank you thank you thank you!!

The shoot was fun, full of action and laughter, which helped put Bryony’s initial concerns at ease and start to feel comfortable and enjoy being in front of the camera.

Cassie Riley Pt 1: Environmental Portraits Project

Cassie Riley is one very talented young lady with multiple international and national titles to her name.  Here is this short video she tells us about her favourite weapons, Kamas.

This is the first video in my current project about interesting hobbies, professions and past times.  The project idea has evolved from just photography to creating multimedia incorporating still photography, video and voice.  There has been a few weeks preparation leading up to this short clip which is part one of this shoot.  The second shoot we are focusing on tricking which is a mixture of martial arts kicks and flips with break dance and gymnastics thrown in.

Engagement Shoot | Maleny

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to assist in photographing Althea and Jon in the lead up to their wedding later in the year.  We headed to a few spots around Maleny on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the afternoon sun was sneaking out from behind the clouds and the Glass House Mountains made a fantastic backdrop.  While Jocelyn from JC Photographry Service | Capturing Lifes Moments took care of the directing, I looked for the candid shots between.  

Something out of the ordinary for me but I look forward to doing more of this in the future.
