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…

Client Shoot – Fashion Model – East Elevation

And so we move to location number 3 for the TheaTheos shoot – a little cafe near my place. The cafe is called East Elevation, it does great food and coffee and also, Monsieur Truffle chocolate is made there 🙂 We stopped in here for lunch and also to shoot some closeups of the jewellery…

RegularRandom – Five Minutes with a Silver Pear

Welcome again to #RegularRandom, where we choose and object or scene and spend just five minutes shooting it, trying to see it from multiple angles, learning about how light interacts with the subject. It’s fun, although can be tricky to come up with new things to shoot. We’d love you to join in – just…

Client Shoot – Fashion Model – Rathdowne Village

Location Number 2 for the TheaTheos photoshoot was in lovely Rathdowne Village. The light was gorgeous! I loved this spot and her dress is divine.   Here’s a cheeky couple of candid shots that I loved: She was such a great sport. You can see the first location shoot here. And many more shots on…

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…

RegularRandom – 5 Minutes with a Leaning Cupcake

So sorry for missing last week! I was travelling and it completely slipped my mind! Dx.   Welcome to this week’s RegularRandom, where we spend just 5 minutes with an object, interacting with it as little as possible, and photographing it from as many angles and perspectives as you can – all within 5 minutes!…

Macro Flowers (you know me!)

I managed to find some intriguing flowers while we were spotting koalas in Kennet River. I had my new 30mm macro lens on so it seemed like fate! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! x desleyjane

Koalas at Kennet River

Just like last time we went to Lorne, we again went to Kennet River to see if we could spot some koalas in the wild. And we did! This time, my visitor was from the US and he was suitably impressed with these cute little guys. x desleyjane

The Great Ocean Road

I went to a conference in Lorne last week and I decided to drive down earlier on the Sunday and take some photographs on the edge of this beautiful country. It was a day that was waiting for the rain to fall and it eventually fell, but in the meantime I revelled in those cloudy…
