The Art of Plating

Some favourites from last week’s food photography session at Quest Hotel North Ryde whilst photographing the menus for their in house restaurants Atlantis Bar and Dining and Sidnees Woodfire Pizzeria.

I am a professional commercial and editorial food product photographer with over a decade of experience. I employ my studio lighting, composition and retouching expertise to create compelling food and beverage images for web and print.

I create mouth-watering photographs of food and beverages on location throughout Australia at my client’s venues as well as in my studio in Sydney. If you are a caterer, restaurant, small business, food manufacturer or food and beverage brand seeking stunning quality imagery, get in touch.

Engineering Confidence with a Corporate Lifestyle Photo Shoot

Hung out with this mob of consultants from Intrax who provides comprehensive, end-to-end engineering service including: structural, civil, electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, surveying, and geotechnical engineering to building and land division clients. I was contacted by their head office in South Melbourne to get some in situ corporate lifestyle photographs of the consultants at their new Ultimo office as well as some team and interior shots.

By incorporating custom, environmental portraits of the team, Intrax would have the opportunity to show their clients not only who they are working with but how they operate as a team thereby helping the company stand out in a incredibly competitive market.

Meet the Team | Corporate headshots for your Startup

With potential customers, investors and industry writers looking at your startup’s website, a team photos page with strong photography is essential. The “About Us” section is one of the first places people click when looking to learn about your company and is an important part of building your brand image.
I spent a super fun morning on the weekend photographing the team from Flixsense at their new office Hoist Co-Working Space by Mirvac down at the Australian Technology Park in Everleigh. The living heritage precinct combining historic rustic brickworks and industrial locomotive parts  is a perfect backdrop for my client’s tech startup on this occasion.

Eat, Sleep, Paddle | Australian Dragon Boat Championships 2018

The Australian Dragon Boat Championships is Australia’s premier Dragon Boating event in which clubs from all states compete against one another for the title of National Champion over 5 consecutive days. AusChamps 2018 was held at Lake Kawana, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

After competing in Day 2 and 3 in the all ages categories with my dragon boat club, I stuck around to photograph Day 4 and 5 of the competition where Club senior crew categories (age 40 and above) and some of the country’s most experienced paddlers battle alongside each other.

Evolution | Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade 40th Anniversary

Earlier this month, an estimated 12,000 participants and more than 200,000 spectator celebrated the historic 40th anniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. 40 years on from the 1978 protest which resulted in police violence and arrests creating a defining night in not only Sydney’s LGBTQI community but Australia’s cultural heritage.

This year’s theme Evolution paid tribute to the evolution of the festival, and to the sociological evolution of social justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex peoples.

Gallery commissioned by Different Strokes Dragon Boat @dsdbc – a Sydney based LGBTQI and Allies dragon boat club who mark their 10th year anniversary this year. The club seeks to promote equality and diversity within the sport of dragon boating.

Back to School | O Week Celebrations

This week I was commissioned by one of my favourite client Entropico to do some event photography work capturing the vibe of UNSW students partying up for O-Week. It was certainly different to the corporate crowd I’ve been accustomed to photographing and took me back to a time over a decade ago when, as a rookie, I spent a good few years specialising in shooting socials and nightlife.

Can’t wait to do it all again tonight!
