Vignettes of Australian Life for AMP

AMP has launched the brand campaign we recently shot for them. Featuring scenes of Australian life, the campaign was shot over a week at a number of locations along the country’s beautiful east coast. Our imagery focused on capturing authentic, genuine lifestyle moments.

A favorite part of the shoot for me was donning a shark repellent band and swimming out off Boulders Beach, Lennox Head in the pitch black to shoot our surfers at sunrise…..yikes!

We’ve already spied some billboards in some of the capital cities, and look forward to seeing more as the campaign rolls out.

Live at Mary Lane

We recently produced the brand campaign imagery for Mary Lane, a residential property development in Brisbane.

Shot over two days, we worked with our client to create a story to tell how it feels to meet, dine, stay, live & play at Mary Lane.

Hello 2015!

New Beginnings

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.

Much love

University of Tasmania via Red Jelly

We had a fun stint on The Apple Isle shooting a series of youth lifestyle images for The University of Tasmania. The brief was to produce a suite of images of kids being kids, and right up my alley. It was an amazing shoot, and a pleasure to bring the authentic, fresh approach to advertising imagery that art director Jerome and the team at Red Jelly had envisioned. Here are a couple from the project:
