Yearly Archives: 2012

I recently visited Manhattan, New York, and had the opportunity to shoot a wonderful couple – Tim and Georgie.  I promised not to do any posing, and to just follow them around shooting in a photojournalistic manner.  Yes, I did feel like a bit of a stalker!  I love NYC and all the random signs and street art.  Tim & Georgie made sure I had plenty of coffee, food and cocktails on our journey.  None of the images have been manipulated, save for changing the colour saturation.  I hope you enjoy our weekend as much as I did!

New York City Couple Shoot

This was a Fantastic Wedding in a gorgeous location called Kullindi Homestead, as you can see from the shots.  Something that was a little different with Erin & Matt’s wedding was who was shooting it!

You may think that all photographers are constantly battling against each other to win a job, snarling across the camera at their rivals!  Well, most of the time this is not the case, and certainly not in the Illawarra.  We all meet up, share ideas and wine, and generally get along.  One of my favourite newbies ( I can say that after being in the industry 26 years) is a lovely fellow that goes by the name of Tom Stewart.  Tom has been shooting weddings for almost 2 years and really has a talent.

Tom volunteered to come along and help me at this wedding, and between the two of us, we rocked it! I suggested that he should do something a little different, and we decided on his shooting with only a 135mm prime lens of F2. (To all you non camera buffs, this means NO zoom, and very blurry backgrounds)

During the afternoon we all went for a drive down a dirt road- I stole a wicker chair from the venue (oops, sorry- I took it back) and we had an AWESOME time!

Thanks Erin & Matt for being so great, and thanks Tom!
