Last week I had a cool shoot with some friends of mine who wanted to get a nice Family Portrait to hang on their wall. Family is a loose term but they all do live together… Whilst they were waiting for me to turn up at their house, they got a little bored and decided they would like to try and recreate the lounge room on the beach. There was some great cloud action going on and since it was uncharacteristically calm that day I took the chance to get my lighting gear out and have a wee play. Managed to coax a few action shots out of the girls too. Well, more than a few actually. We got a bit adventurous, and although the water was bloody cold the girls still managed to have fun.

Having been a musician and involved in theatre myself over the years, I know how hard it can be to get good quality promotional photos at a decent price. You’re a struggling artist but you still need something to autograph for those flocking fans, which is why there’s this super sweat deal: 1hr photo shoot DVD of final images $100 for Individuals, $200 for Bands.

One studio shoot we did was for a burlesque show they were doing, which was great fun. We had The Magenta Diamond, Tom Beauchamp and Vinyl Burns getting their sauce on for a thoroughly naughty xmas. The Navigators is a new show by Fuse and it was one of the most rewarding shoots I’ve done so far. The theme was all about travel and discovery, so we set out for some locations around the Wellington south coast and managed to get some amazing images, even if i do say so myself! The…
