Sending out good vibes and wishes to everyone sweltering across Australia this week in the hot, hot summer. Here’s a greeting and some ‘coolth’ from a photo shoot I did in London a few weeks back.
Ladies and gentlemen, did you get engaged at Christmas or New Years? Congratulations. Particularly to anyone who managed to get a free fireworks show as part of the engagement. Time to start planning for the wedding and I know a great, friendly wedding photographer who is ready to create beautiful images of your wedding. Me.
Drop me a message from my contacts page or head over to Facebook (like me) and send a message from there.
Just uploaded a bunch of images to rotate on my front page and thought I’d share them here too.
They are a selection of wedding and commercial stock photography images I took recently in London and Paris. Now back in Lismore I am ready to do your photography in Northern NSW, and am also happy to travel to any destination you require.
I had the greatest pleasure on the weekend photographing Aimee and Simon’s wedding at Bangalow in the Byron Bay hinterland, and then on to their reception in Ballina. Aimee looked stunning in her wedding dress with lace accents and cap sleeves but it was their gorgeous daughter that stole the show in the church.
I’m about to completely redo my photography price lists from scratch. Here’s your chance to tell me what you want and how much you want to pay for it. Weddings, portraits, anything – please let me know what you would expect to receive and how much you would expect to pay. Just send me a message from the contacts page or via Facebook.
And as an incentive – the most helpful responder gets a free portrait photoshoot. Also, please go like my page at http://www.facebook.com/DavidFreundPhotography
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.
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.
Just revisiting a few photos I took in London, England and liked the look of this image of Westminster Abbey. Traditionally Royal weddings in England take place here. I wonder if a Royal couple getting married in Northern NSW would choose the churches of Lismore, the hinterland hills behind Byron Bay or the Ballina beaches for their wedding.
Last weekend I had the massive honour of being the wedding photographer for Amanda and James. In the past I have photographed numerous wedding and portraits for a great deal of their family and friends so, for me, it was kind of a reunion of sorts seeing many people who had been in front of my lens in the past.
Their ceremony was held at St Carthages Cathedral in Lismore and the reception at the Ballina RSL. All day the weather was a bit of a threat with it being very windy and rain didn’t look too far away. That turned out to be great for me. While taking wedding photographs on the beach at Ballina the sky turned wild up towards Byron Bay making for a spectacular back drop.
