Breakfast event held at the Grounds of Alexandria for Darren Palmer X Myer.
Prada recently hosted a small group of media, influences and celebrities to Government House in Sydney for the World wide preview of Past Forward. I was asked to shoot portraits of the guests as they arrived.
I couldn't be happier doing this type work. Although this was an event - I was in charge of capturing portraits of the guests as they arrived at the grand entrance and stairs of the Government House, Sydney. Although to the Italian office's contact on the grounds horror what we were doing - I reassured her that fun and not too formal. She was ecstatic at the end of it.
As you can imagine - I didn't have much time with them. Having to think extremely quick on your feet and trying to position them and lighting was stressful - but extremely fun. You don't have a moment to get caught up on their status or fame. Especially when Jessica Mauboy or Sarah Ellen walks in the door. You just have to throw them in and work with it.
While I was shooting I had the imagery being sent wirelessly to my laptop, although it wasn't an interest by the client - it could have been sending it straight to an iPhone of iPad for Instagram or Facebook.... food for thought for your next event?
I'm pretty proud of this one as I worked very closely with 20th Century Fox to collaborate and produce the content from conception to completing the finished product.
In an attempt to promote the launch of The Longest Ride for a digital release we worked on creating an experience fit for media and creating content worthy of that media.
Influences and mainstream media were invited to Centennial Park, Sydney Riding company to experience a horse ride of there own.

I have been Merivales photographer for about 4 years now. When I attend a Merivale event you can see why Merivale bars and restaurants are so successful. However, when you attend their awards night, The Merivales it just reinforces it. With over 1000 happy, proud and excited staff attending the Merivales are just another way that Justin Hemmes gives back to the staff. I am also very proud to be a event photographer for group!
I'm sure you can understand my excitement when Maserati called to book me for this. I don't believe you if you say you haven't perved on one, as its drive down the street with that distinctive growl - even in low revs. It makes my neck hairs stand on end. So when the call came through to shoot the Polo Society's Mothers Day Polo at Kurri Burri Polo Club - I understandably jumped at it. "You mean, I'm going to get paid to photograph cars?!"
