Snake Shoot with Dayna

Shooting with snakes is always interesting - especially when shooting venomous snakes. The Common Death Adder is particularly fun - when its wriggling towards you flat out as you try to get it in focus with its tongue flicking out!

Fortunately the handler was dragging him away from me!. The pythons were much safer and I also shot my large jungle python named Boaz. Dayna was very confident handling the non venomous snakes and at one point had 7 snakes draped over her. Even Jess the makeup artist was helping catch the runaways!

We finished with a large python in a dark background for some gorgeous shots.

Here is a selection of the photos from the shoot.

Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation

The Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation programme attracts a lot of ladies and men to change their weight and bodies through changing diets habits and  exercise. The finale is a large share exercise session that runs for two to three hours and Michelle comes and participates and encourages those who come along. This year I was involved in shooting this and the below shots indicate some of the shots from the exercise sessions.

Following the exercise session we headed into the Hilton ballroom where there was a cocktail evening and presentations for the winners. Part of this was a red carpet experience with Michelle where I set up lights and shot groups of people posing with Michelle against a banner.

I have included a selection of photos from this event to indicate the types of photos you can expect from a similar event.

Witcher Family Photos

A lovely Sunday afternoon was spent down at the Scarborough foreshore back in April with the delightful Witcher family and their dogs. One of the boys was back in Oz briefly and the family thought this would be a good time to get pics together. Below is a sample of the lovely foreshore with views to the Glasshouse Mountains across the bay - and of course the Witchers.

Dayna and Melissa Beach Shoot

Must remember to pack insect repellent in my shoot kit. Mozzies were not our friends on the shoot down at Red Beach Bribie Island.

The gorgeous sunset and calm waters were. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. If you want photos like this then check out the pricing for our glamour shoots.

Pole Gym Shoot Photos

What an epic shoot. I think I am never ever organising such an insane shoot again! Not that it wasn't fun, but I've learnt my lesson - too many people to shoot in one day. We had 13 ladies booked and we ended up taking 12 hours to do the whole thing from leave in the morning to setup the set, and then shoot everybody and then go home. And then the editing! I think I've been editing for ever!

I have also been educated in many of the finer technical aspects of Chinese Pole, aerial acrobatics let me tell you. Don't be fooled, these pictures look effortless but the ladies were working really hard to pull them off and there was a lot of sweat and chalk was being applied liberally to thighs and hands. Having the gym instructor barking instructions at the ladies was also funny as they corrected the poses to show the correct technical aspects.

What Pole Gym is NOT is the sort of pole dancing you might see in a strip club. It is actually nothing to do with that at all. It is actually the acrobatic extension of gymnastics rope, silks and aerial hoop work. This can be frustrating for people to understand.

I have shown two types of photos below. Some are the technical pole positions - I haven't attempted to name them for fear of getting them wrong, the have names like superman, hanging basket, scorpion etc. There are also some acrobatic poses using a chair as a prop. Secondly i have included some of the portrait style photos we produced for most of the ladies.

I was also excited to have one of the ladies produce large scale mounted images for her wall at home.

Adonai Clothing Photo-shoot

They don't have a website yet, just a Facebook page, but check out the quality of the gear! I think we did a good job of capturing the essence of beach, fun and funky clothing. View the Adonai clothing gallery.
