Grown-Up!

Boy to Man

Boy to Man

Many years ago an established Photographer friend asked me to be second shooter at a large wedding in the Hunters Hill area. My first job of the day was to cover the grooms prep at his family’s home.

Pascale was getting ready upstairs when I noticed a larger than life childhood portrait at the entrance to his room. I began to set up the shot with the anticipation that he would eventually walk through the doorway and I could capture this transition from boy to man, but instead the grooms Dad entered the room and gave his boy a big hug, a beautiful moment between father and son.

At the time I didn’t have any children but I always liked this shot for it’s journalistic qualities and that special father son moment, however only recently it had an emotional connection when it occurred to me that one day my little boy similar age to the boy in the picture will be all grown up.

Even though it’s still a while off, it reinforces the fact we must embrace every moment and every step of our Children’s journey through life, because in this busy fast paced world we live in time can really slip by.

Just Married! Nikki and Chris Leaving the Church to a very excited crowd of friends and family. February 2012

This has to be one of my favourite emotion filled shots of 2012.

One of the keys to Wedding photography is anticipating where and when the action is going to happen and making sure your always in the best position so you can capture those magical split seconds in time.

 

 

 

Pink Reflection

This is a photo from Jennifer’s bride prep in her late Mums rose garden. The sun was directly above us which is always a challenge for photographers. So instead of using a regular reflector to manipulate the lighting this big blooming rose was the perfect way to bounce some soft pink light back onto Jen’s face..

This is a product shot I took recently for a Pharmacy nail polish promotion. The nail polish was chilled in the freezer for a short while to thicken it up so it didn’t run all over my table when I took the lid off.
The set was lit by one soft box.
