Regular Random – Five minutes with a Posy Jar

Scientist Spotlight – Professor Jenny Martin

Professor Jenny Martin was appointed Director of the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD) in 2016. At that time, it was called The Eskitis Institute and I worked there from 2000 – 2005. Being an alumni and a photographer, Jenny asked me to photograph the leadership team and students for the rebranding of the Institute…

Client Shoot – Fashion Model – Northcote

Location 4 for the TheaTheos shoot was the little suburb of Northcote in Melbourne. This was after lunch, and after a session in the studio where we avoided the sunniest part of the day. I loved the graffiti and wall art here. Just stunning and great colours to work with. Location 1 : Greek Orthodox…

RegularRandom – Five Minutes with Pens

I’m a stationery addict. There I said it. There’s comfort in knowing that I’m not alone. For this week’s #RegularRandom I decided to spend 5 minutes with my new Zebra Mildliners – (from http://www.bunbougu.com.au) these are seriously cool Japanese pens. I don’t know why Japan has such awesome stationery, but there it is. It is…

The Huangpu River View

I was in Shanghai last week. It’s such a long flight, it seems so silly to go for such a short time. I left Melbourne on Tuesday morning at 8am and arrived in Shanghai Tuesday night at 10pm Melbourne time – so that’s 14 hours of travel. I spent Wednesday to Friday in a sales meeting…

Five Minutes with MissGidget

Welcome to another RegularRandom, where we spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with our subject as little as possible. It had to happen eventually, you knew I would spend five minutes with Gidget. Here she…

Olympus Macro Comparison – 30mm vs 60mm #RegularRandom

#regularrandom #regularrandom #regularrandom #regularrandom #regularrandom The lovely Jude from The Earth Laughs in Flowers asked if I had compared my two Olympus macro lenses. I recently got the 30mm macro lens after having used the 60mm macro for the last few years. I thought it was a great opportunity to compare the two lenses via our RegularRandom challenge, where…
