Hunter Valley Uncorked Event

The Hunter Valley Uncorked Event brings the best of The Hunter down to Avalon Beach.
The Village Green at Dunbar Park came alive with the some of the greatest pleasures from Australia’s oldest wine region and was indeed a pleasure to shoot as the tastes, sights and sounds of the Hunter Valley merged laid-back coastal lifestyle of Avalon.

Prada - Past Forward Event

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?

Georg Jensen X Sydney Ballet at Benelong, Sydney Opera House

It is always a pleasure being called upon as the photographer for Georg Jensen.  Their events are usually spectacular but relaxed and this one for the the launch of the Zaha Hadid collection was no exception.  Again, my team and I were given the task to capture video content and imagery with - what I think - were spectacular results.

STILLS

David Jones - Spring Summer 2015

Being a Sydney event photographer is a tough gig sometimes... Haha not really. Sometimes I need to pinch myself, especially when I'm running around as a social photographer at the David Jones Spring Summer 2015 show and rubbing shoulders with some of Australia's top celebs from Demi Harman, Buddy Franklin, Samara Weaving, Nicole Warne, Margaret Zhang and as well as Gigi Hadid to name a few.  Then to carry on working backstage shooting some of Australia's most talented models, Jesinta Campbell, Jessica Gomes and Montana Cox ... It's a really tough life!

The Merivales

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! 

Maserati - Mothers Day Classic Polo

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?!"

Life CAN be perfect with Bollinger.

It's not often that I'm up in Palm Beach.  But when you get there you never want to leave.   So it was a pleasure when I was asked to photograph and film the "Life can be perfect" event by Bollinger at the renowned Boat House.  If only I had a scooter man to drive me home - cause its a long way.
