Mustang Bar Shoot Preview

So my friend Bianca had an awesome idea for a shoot. She wanted to have and her and her friends dressed up in heels and corsets around a bar or some sort. Her friend actually works at the Mustang Bar in the valley and allowed to us all Friday night up there for a shoot. SWEEEET!!!!!!

Krisztina and I got there early to set-up and get my lighting sorted before everyone got there. Here’s a quick set-up shot of me, yep..I don’t get on this side of the camera much but here i am..

I’ve been pretty busy lately with lots of photoshoots. Last night in the city i had the pleasure of shooting local band Trash Queen.

Here’s a preview..

As you can see i have my 3 580’s behind the guys, i also my octabox next to me but i switched it off for a few shots to create this nice silhouette for a preview photo.

Here’s a BHS shot of one of my set-ups

580 left bare, large octabox front, 580 brolly right and Krisztina doing some filming and taking BHS photos..

Do You Winch???

I got a call Sunday from my mate Matt Bradley who is a very keen wakeboarder. His mate Cam lives at Brighton and has just about every toy under the sun that has to do with wakeboarding, Kitesurfing and wake skating including an awesome huge slider bar that he straps to his roof and drives down to the beach, well mud flats at low tide.

Owner of the slider Cam Prest steezing it out off the end..Heaps more photos on the jump..Check it out..

Panic Hair Photoshoot

Here’s a preview of the awesome photoshoot i did on Sunday for Panic Hair Studio in St Lucia Brisbane. Very talented hair dresses. Jools, the owner had a crazy idea of shooting with a blacklight inside a tanning booth. This was a first for me. 5ft x 3ft room, 3 people, Slow shutter, tripod, pieces of paper to reflect the light onto the models face. Crazy concept, i was working out solutions as quick as they came up..

Here’s a behind the scenes photo of the booth from Krisztina

Me behind the camera and holding another piece of paper, Jools holding the light and Leah the model..

Seeing Jools was sooo excited to see the results, i can show you now as you read this cause she used it for their new Facebook page

The Final result. B’s awesome Mo-Hawk. Amazing hair style. Good team effort to get the photo..

I’ll be using this one my site for sure.

If you live in Brisbane and want amazing hair, check out Panic Hair Bazzar here  http://www.panichair.com.au/

They are also on Facebook..

Stay tuned for the studio shoot..The girls went crazy!!


Poker Shoot- Sneaky T

Here’s some Behind the Scenes photos of the latest photoshoot in my garage with Sneaky -T and Bianca

The Set-up. My garage is no way big enough with all my stuff in it. The back wall was causing me a lot of problems due to the lack of room, i was having problems getting nice separation from the subjects to the wall. My octabox was also hitting the roof. I moved my Mac downstairs for tethering through the new Lightroom 3. First time on a photoshoot, it worked perfect except for the fact i need a Mac laptop. Checking focus, light and general details so i don’t have to fix them later in photoshop. A huge screen is way better than the small one on my 5D.

Krisztina fliming and getting up close and personal with her 500D and my fisheye lens..hopefully video coming soon..
