The Brisbane Supanova Pop Culture Exposition was a lot of fun to to be at. There were lots of very cool people, awesome costumes, amazing sights and lots very good trade booths and events. I took my daughter Miranda who dressed as Yuki Cross from Vampire Knights - in an awesome costume her very talented mother hand sewed! I have put up around 1000 photos that are available with a creative commons licence on Flickr in the Supanova Brisbane Set. These are small size images - only 1600 pixels and are not edited for colour and exposure balance etc. If you want a full size edited one then the prices are as follows:
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.
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.
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.
