The Beauty of Japan & the Suntory Alcohol Experience

From April 9-13 I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Japan to photograph for alcohol brand Suntory on their " The House of Suntory - The Nature and Spirit of Japan" media trip. The journey included experiences in Osaka, Kyoto, Yamazaki, Tokyo and the Southern Japanese Alps. I accompanied journalist James Atkinson to capture the stories of this journey to assist him in his articles as well as imagery for Suntory. 

Take a look behind the scenes of the culture, food and fun that we had on this amazing trip. A big thank you to Suntory for giving us this opportunity. 


Great to see the imagery from the Suntory Japan trip featuring in the media! Big thanks to James Atkinson for the great article. View the Good Food article HERE.

Sharing our our love of photography as stunning gallery style artwork: Brisbane Online Art

LP Commercial Photography - Artwork

When you are a photographer, you don’t put the camera down at the end of the working day, it travels with you everywhere you go.

For the first time, we are opening the doors to a huge & ever growing catalogue of our personal work. The images we take when we are not working but simply wanting to capture the world around us in all its glory.

From Landscapes to street scenes, macro images to global travel photography, these are the photographs that we put our heart & soul into, & until now, have not been available to the public. Now you can share our passion & our love of photography as stunning gallery style artwork, printed & constructed in Australia, on acrylic glass, canvas, framed fine art prints, posters or wood prints.

We will be sending out regular updates as we release more images from our combined back catalogue as well as all new work. Our current images are all here: 

We also want to be inspired by you so if you are looking for a particular style of scene or image let us know by contacting us here: EMAIL

Fully customised commissions for specific artwork, especially for you, is possible. 

Anyway Em will explain below where to go and what to do if you want to discover more...

Putting the right face forward.... the commercial portrait

The first impression most of your customers/clients/associates or possible future employers will get of you is in the form of a commercial portrait.... a photograph of you. 

It is so important to get this right.... not just a picture chosen at random or one where you think you look gorgeous, but one that truly reflects your brand, its identity, your ethics, your position and authority or your openess and approachability etc.

The commercial portrait is a mainstay of our business. Whether our clients want highly personalised, on location images or more clinically clean studio style images. 

To make things simple we tend to shoot at our clients offices allowing us to take a large number of client images with as little disruption to their working day. This can mean that you never really know your shooting space until you get there and sometimes that can mean adapting and carrying enough kit to enable you to get the results you need under almost any conditions.

So click below and come behind the scenes with us on a recent corporate portraiture shoot with our clients Tomkins Commercial and Industrial Builders.

We love Customising for our Clients: Styled Real Estate Photography

Real Estate photography has a certain look.... but not for one of our clients.

We are preferred photography supplier for Von Barnes, Owner of Pinnacle Properties in Brisbane. Von is a style queen and one of her key services for clients is to help style their house for the perfect buyer selling lifestyle as well as bricks and mortar. As a result Von needs us to pull on our experiences and architectural and interior photographers as well as our lifestyle magazine work to create images that have as much to do as showing emotions as showing room sizes.... but we'll let Von explain in the video below :)

A Pop up commercial Portraiture studio? now there's something to offer your event attendees

One of the great things about being set up as a location photographer is we can create a virtual studio space almost anywhere.

Something we have been doing a lot lately for our clients is setting up a pop up studio at their events. This means that clients (particularly in the financial services sector) who often host industry briefings etc for their corporate clients can now offer an added bonus for those who attend - not just a goody bag, but a professional corporate headshot for the website/LinkedIn page/marketing material etc.

Here is a behind the scenes look at an AEA Networking event where we provided photographic coverage of the event and staged more than 30 corporate headshot sessions in our pop up studio.

Training micro businesses in DIY product photography

We are back in Clermont, this time as guests of Isaac Region Council hosting a training workshop for micro businesses and local photographers in DIY product photography.

Obviously there are times when only a professional and experienced product photographer will do.... and we should know as it is one area from which we earn our living.

But lets be honest, many small and micro businesses simply can't afford the costs of constantly hiring product photographers, but still need great images of their products online for sale.

This was the scenario that Isaac Council approached us with, so we designed the ultimate DIY course for such business, teaching them simple techniques to build their own micro product studio and the skills and knowledge to take, edit and market their images all from their smart devices. It was a lot of fun with some great and creative people attending, see our behind the scenes video below.
