Sometimes being a photographer opens doors to worlds most people don’t get to see. That’s exactly what happened to me when I photographed a surgeon using an intense green laser during an operation. The room was pretty much completely darkened and the light came from the very impressive and incredibly powerful sci-fi laser beam.
Looking for commercial photography for your small business? I’m currently looking for small business people to photograph for stock photography purposes. These images will be taken for free and you will be able to use them for your promotional purposes. In return I will require signed model releases for anyone in the images and a property release for the location. Classic win, win. Send me a message for more information.
I had a fun weekend. Got to hang out with and photograph the one and only Commando Steve from The Biggest Loser. Steve was invited to Lismore by the crew at Nine12 Fitness Centre to run a bootcamp training session and seminar. After photographing the first session I was invited to gear up and join in the second training session with a bunch of fitness trainers and other athletes. Great fun, top bloke.

One of the ironies of my work is that I often photograph the weddings of couples from overseas, and shoot stock photography with international markets in mind. My stock work also is paid in US dollars but I have never worked there. Until now.
I’m just back from a couple of weeks working in Los Angeles doing some commercial stock photography for Getty Images and iStockphoto. The images taken will soon be available for license but I am also available for commercial photography assignments here is Australia especially for businesses in the Lismore, Ballina and Byron Bay areas of Northern NSW.
Here’s a quick selection of some if the images from the photoshoots I did in LA around Santa Monica and Venice Beach
Next photo adventure looks like being another trip to London later in the year to do some work a little different to what you might normally expect. This imagery isn’t going to be about all things British and I’m excited by what I may be able to capture in my camera.
Sometimes being a photographer really is all people think it is – pure unmitigated fun. There’s a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to bring together four fabulous models, a dozen classic motorbikes and two massive muscle cars in an empty city block but it was all worth it.
To be honest I couldn’t believe the bikes that turned up – a few Triumphs, BMWs, a couple of Ducattis, a Norton and an Ariel. An Ariel with a sidecar!! I would have loved to have had more time to play with the bikes but the guys were dropping by as a favour and were keen to hit the road. I also had a 56 Chev hotrod and a worked Ford F100 at my disposal in the deserts streets and lane ways of the Lismore CBD – a great location to photograph in.
If you are interested in some fashion photography for your shop or clothing label, or commercial photography of any kind. Drop me a line from my contacts page. I can do a shoot for you that will really make you stand out from your competition.
Special thanks goes to the members of the Northern Rivers Classic Motorcycle Club, Wal & Bianca and Andrew.
And for my father. Yes Dad, the pics are meant to be black and white. But here’s a colour one just for you.
In addition to being a wedding photographer, I also photograph a range of things for local Northern NSW businesses. This commercial photography can be anything from product photography in my studio, to location photography or other promotional photography for your businesses. I recently did a 3 day photoshoot at various locations around Ballina, Byron Bay, Lennox Head and outside Lismore for Creative Blinds. It was a great shoot that went super smoothly even though the lighting was particularly tricky.
I regularly shoot commercial images for clients who have decided to have a go at the photography themselves first to save money. The problem is that when they don’t manage to get the shot, they may have wasted significant time trying. I shot one job where the client had tried for 3 solid days to get what they were after. They called me at the last minute to step in and complete it for them. It was a studio shot that I set up, lit, photographed and post processed in under an hour. By trying to save my fee, they wasted 3 days of their own time.
If you are considering the need for some photography to help promote your business, please drop me an email or give me a call.
Wedding photography season is over for me for the year so I am doing all kinds of other photographic work. Yesterday saw me all over Northern NSW heading out from Lismore photograph trucks from Kyogle to Murwillumbah. Here’s a quick pic of the two trucks in question.
