Sometimes you just have to do something for yourself every now and then, and even though photography is my job, it's also still my hobby. Usually, I love taking photos of landscapes in my spare time, but lately, I've been branching out into food photography. I've been reading up on food styling and experimenting with angles and backgrounds. Here are some of my latest food photography shots:
Ashwani is currently pregnant and wanted some photos of her son and family before her next child was born, so she contacted me to arrange a family photo shoot at her home just before Christmas. We started out in her living room and then walked to the local park, which was just down the street, to get some more photos of the family altogether. I look forward to meeting your new little daughter soon Ashwani!
Today was the day of Renee's second family photo shoot at Shorncliffe. We met at the pier and walked along the foreshore battling the wind, stopping to take some photos of Renee and her family along the way.
We took a couple of the kids by themselves, as well as some of Renee and Mark together as well. Then headed up to the park at the top of the stairs, to blow some bubbles while Eamon watched with delight as Callum chased them in the wind.
A very fun photo shoot with a very lovely family. Below are some of my favourite photos from the day.
Renee recently contacted me regarding two photo shoots that she wanted me to shoot. The first one was on the day of her son's christening. Renee wanted photos of the whole family together afterwards, so we headed to a park in Aspley, (North side of Brisbane) and took a few group photos to capture the memories of the day.
We got a few shots of the adults by themselves, as well as some of the children separately too. Renee also wanted a couple of photos of Eamon by himself, in his cute little christening outfit.
Below are some of the photos from the first photo shoot after the christening. Stay tuned for photos of the second photo shoot, of just Renee and her little family, soon to come.
Candice wanted some recent photos of her family, to show the addition of her newest daughter Courtney. We met down at the Berrinba Wetlands for the photo shoot and wandered around the parklands stopping to take photos around the lake. We then went to the play equipment and got a few of the kids playing and one of mum and dad alone together, since they haven't had any photos of just themselves since they got married.
Below are some of my favourites from our time together.
Recently a client knock me back for a job because I didn't have any examples of food photography that I could show him. So today I had a bit of a play around with food photography while I was waiting for a new client to turn up for a product photography photo shoot for her website.
I've had an interest in food photography for a while now (as one day I would like to write, design, photograph and publish my own cook book), but I have never had the opportunity to experiment very much because of time constraints. So today I had all my lighting gear set up, and my client was running a bit late, so I thought - why not have a bit of a play around to see what I can achieve before she gets here? So I did. And this is what I came up with.
I can't wait to have another go at food photography again soon - after I have finished editing all the photos from my latest wedding, family shoot and product photography shoots that is. Stay tuned for some more fun food photography shots soon!
Please feel free to let me know if you prefer the artificial lighting (top photo) or the natural lighting (bottom).
This is Jodi's family. We met at the beach at Redcliffe and took some photos of them along the foreshore. Little Mya was so cute in her little dress and had a lot of fun playing in the sand and watching the world around her. I can't wait to photograph Mya again for her cake smash when she turns 1!
These are some of my favourite photos from our get together.
Meet Haley. Haley is a nutritionist. She needed some photos for her new website and decided to contact me. Haley wanted photos that were fun yet professional, showing that healthy eating and drinking was not only good for you, but can also be very yummy!
We met up at New Farm Park and took some photos amongst the beautiful Jacaranda trees that are in full bloom at the moment. Below are some of my favourite photos from our shoot together.
We started our family photo shoot at Preeya's house so we could get some photos of the family with their cute little dog. We then drove out to Fort Lytton for the second location as Preeya wanted her photos to have old, rundown buildings in the background and it seemed like the perfect location. We got some shots of the boys posing like models in front of the old ruins and some of mum and dad cuddling up together, as well some black and white photos of the whole family inside some of the buildings.
Preeya and her family were very easy to photograph despite them saying that they were a bit nervous to begin with. They soon relaxed and we got some great shots of everyone.
I recently shot a wedding down at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat and afterwards I thought I'd try my hand at photographing the Milky Way while I was there. Below are some of the photos that I took on the night. I will be uploading these and some others onto my landscape photography website for purchase soon.
