Another One Bites The Dust

Ok so here I am at the end of another wedding season and its now finally time to admit that I am obviously no blogger. I seem to manage one post per year - the ubiquitous end of year wrap up. Same goes for 2017 and 2016 - scroll down to see my point…

So what gives Andy?

Well I always seem to be busy with current work and the stuff of life. Plus I’m going through something of a reassessment of the whole social media universe that has crept into our daily lives. Do we all really need to be so connected with our screens, likes, comments, twitter, facebook, Instagram blah blah blah. Problem is as a freelancer its a great way to promote myself and get work. So no doubt it’s important for business but to be honest I would much prefer going for a ride on my bike or reading a book.

Anyway enough of that...

Massive thanks to all my clients and lets all have a great Christmas and New Year.

As for next year some changes afoot - its time for me to swap cameras and jump onto a mirrorless system. Fuji X- Pro2 looks like the perfect setup suited to my style and I absolutely love the colour and rendition of the X-Trans sensors - who doesn’t love a new camera and some cracking lenses?

Thats a Wrap...

Well that was quick.

It seems like only a few short months ago I was climbing up and down the frozen mountains of Japan with Amelia in early 2015. On returning in mid February its been non stop with weddings, commercial shoots, a couple of exhibitions plus a move to my new studio in Hermit Park. I also bagged a couple of silver awards at the APPA's which puts me within striking distance of gaining my "Master of Photography" accreditation with the AIPP. 

My new studio is going to be awesome :-). Its a converted church - tons of room to shoot portraits with a gorgeous high ceiling enabling me to put my lights up where I want them. After the holiday break in late January I'll be posting some portrait package specials to kick off 2016 and the new studio.

Anyway here is a selection of some favorite wedding images from this year. Thank you so much to all my wonderful clients who trust in my work. Every booking means a great deal to me.

Thank you Thank you THANK YOU...

Ready - Set - Go

Its been quite a break for me from weddings and this blog but things are all about to change. My wedding season usually runs from Easter to November so I'm about to hit the starting line for 2015. Of course my summer break has hardly been a break at all with lots of commercial and architecture shoots to keep me busy and a wonderful recharge trip to Japan in the new year. So as usual at this time I start to look through past images and plan my year ahead.

Here is a small sample with more to come soon...

Weddings on Magnetic Island QLD 2014

Well its that time of year again when the mercury starts to push my comfort zone and I get to pack away my wedding shoes for a couple of months. So time to take stock, reflect on the year that was and make plans for new and exciting changes ahead. Below is a collection of my favorite images from some of the weddings that I had the pleasure an honour to photograph on Magnetic Island in 2014. 
Sadly though my home away from home namely Lotus House on the beach at Horseshoe Bay has stopped taking bookings for wedding receptions - all fingers crossed that this situation will change in the near future.
And a massive thank you, thank you, thank you to all the couples that I met along the way.
