2012 has really kicked off with a bang for us photography wise with numerous shoots in Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane so far.
The second weekend of January there was a geek conference in Melbourne (unnoticed by most of the world). However the Drupal Downunder 2012 conference held in Melbourne is for the powerful CNS software that powers over 1% of the worlds website including this one, Drupal.
I went to the conference as a participant but also as a photographer shooting individuals, speakers and groups of people as they listened, worked, played and collaborated together. It was a great fun time with a rich and diverse group of creative and ingenious people.
Here are some of my favourites from the weekend.
And yes – I know there’s a lot of pics of Dries!
It is really nice to see a family who get along real well together and look out for each other. The Louden family are one of those families. Each genuinely care for the others and you can see this in the way they interact. One of the little girls got something in her eye and the other had a green ant bite 5 minutes into the shoot. Everybody showed concern and helped them feel better and get back into the spirit of taking photos again.
As a result we had a lot of fun. First we did a staggered shoot under some old gnarled trees and then used another tree to arrange people under and on. Then it was onto synchronised walking and jumping - lots of hilarity there! Finally we did some nice group shots out on the grass with a thundery grey cloudy sky. We finished with some more antics and then packed up.
Here are some of the best ones.
The inaugural charity gala event was held at the Noosa Sheraton Resort to raise funds for Katie Rose Cottage at Doonan, a hospice dedicated to the whole of the Sunshine Coast for people who require palliative care. Katie Rose Cottage provides free palliative care and accommodation for their guests and relies solely on donations to run the hospice. The goal of the Katie Rose Cottage is to assist their guests in being as aware and pain-free as possible, so that their last days may be spent with dignity and quality while surrounded by their loved ones. The care at Katie Rose Cottage treats the person rather than the disease, focusing on quality rather than length of life; it affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. The hospice is family oriented by including the guest and the family in making decisions. All funds raised from the Noosa Summer Charity Ball, including the ticket sales will go directly to Katie Rose Cottage.
On 5th November 2011 the Noosa Summer Charity Ball hosted a Roaring 20’s Charity Ball at the Sheraton Noosa. In a nod to the Roaring Twenties, Lilly Pond Terrace and the Noosa Ball Room was transformed into a Speakeasy Bar with lounges and plenty of mood lighting. A lavish evening of live entertainment and dancing, raffles, auctions, delicious food and fabulous fun was had by all.
Dreamcoat Photography was there to shoot as period photographers (though with modern equipment thank goodness) capturing the glamour of the ritzy and debonair set playing gentle people with a beautifully restored (fully working) Model T Ford. We printed the photos on the night for everybody. 50% of our proceeds were donated to the Katie Rose Cottage charity as well.
