Dear friends, colleagues and supporters of our work, wishing you a very happy new year and an amazing 2016.
We are looking forward to our paths crossing this year. See you soon!
Happy New Year from all of us. 2014 seems like a blur now, but we managed to keep track of a few highlights during the whirl-wind ride. Some of them are:
Personal project|The Ol’ Boys: The Ol’ Boys had a big start to the year with a 2 week print exhibition at the Noosa Festival of Surfing. It was great to see the crowds appreciating the 1 metre prints. Throughout 2014 we also caught up with just over 300 surfers who allowed us to take their portraits. The project was featured by ABC radio who attended a shoot and recorded a feature that appeared online and during drive-time radio. The Ol’ Boys also had a multiple page print feature in creative arts journal Collective Magazine, plus featured on Adobe’s Behance networks curated page “The Served” as a feature project.
We worked on a ton of commercial projects too, like shooting on the beach at sunrise for Tourism Australia, received access to Brisbane International Airport and The Sofitel for Flight Centre Business Travel, visited over a dozens of people’s private homes for NRMA Insurance and again for Suncorp Bank, in a gritty inner-west gym with Adam Goodes for Rexona, went back to Brisbane Airport for Virgin Australia (re-licensed worldwide), on blocked off streets downtown for Queensland Police and again for Queensland Health, on The Apple Isle for the University of Tasmania, in supermarket isles for Dan Murphys, and on a city rooftop for Investa.
We were blessed to be awarded a gold and 2 silver awards at the Brisbane Advertising and Design Awards for The Ol’ Boys, plus a silver and 2 bronze awards at the International Loupe awards in the portrait and advertising categories.
We absolutely loved every minute of 2014, and can’t wait to work with all of you in 2015. Thank you to everyone who worked with us and supported us last year.
Here’s a neat little Behind the Scenes vid we shot during the Be Yourself shoot for Broadway on the Mall.
Props to Orien Zuyderhoff – Gray for the footage and Josh Maguire for the edit
There’s often this moment in a shoot, the minute you realize you’ve done what you and the client have set out to do and the rest is just gravy. Shit can get pretty weird after that, but in a good way, cray cray, but good.
I was shooting Cleve Hughes from Viviens for the Broadway on the Mall campaign a while ago, and that moment happened.
