Will Flack & Camille Egdorf for Costa Sunglasses

We got to spend some time with world class anglers Camille Egdorf and Will Flack on the saltwater flats in Belize.
We were blessed with dreamy blue skies and tropical balminess that was second to none – a few big days for Costa Sunglasses via McGarrah Jesse. These are a few of our favourite lifestyle images from the shoot.

Kimi Werner for Costa Sunglasses

We’re thrilled to see more of the portraits from the recent campaign we shot for Costa Sunglasses rolling out, this one featuring professional freediver and spearfisher Kimi Werner

Costa Sunglasses – For Those Who Need Water to Breathe

We’re stoked to be able to share a very small part of a big project we recently shot for eyewear brand Costa via McGarrah Jessee. We travelled to Belize to shoot a portrait series and lifestyle imagery of some of the world’s top professional anglers and spear fishing experts.

Taking these portraits as close to the action that best represented each subject was key, and it was a very fun yet challenging battle with the elements in an amazing setting. This image of waterman Mark Healey is already live on billboards in the USA, and we can’t wait to share more of this project as it rolls out.

Iron Jack

We worked with the team at Lion Nathan to create both still and moving imagery for the launch of the new beer Iron Jack. We told a story of Australian Outdoorsmen living in the Outback among the freedom and challenges of this hot, rugged country.

Shot in a remote location in the Northern Territory, we embraced the challenge of  getting our 20 cast and crew onto our locations. Big thanks to our Darwin Unit who provided superb local knowledge, casting assistance and crocodile safety (no joke!)

Below is a Directors Cut of the footage we shot, as well as some images from the project:

Joining the Drive to Save Lives

Shot a nice little project to promote motorcycle safety that’s now in the market. We were asked to create visuals that illustrated the idea that a rider’s relationship with a motorbike is like a marriage, and sometimes needs tender loving care to keep it on track. The purpose is to promote driver re-training courses for middle-aged riders returning to a motorbike after a long period off the bike.

We were blessed with some really nice bikes and styling on the shoot, and our human talent did a fantastic job with his 2 wheeled co-stars.

Ride safe everyone!

 

Industrial scenes for TAFE Queensland ‘Why Wait to Make Great?’ 2017 Summer Enrolment Campaign

We recently produced, propped, styled and shot over 40 industrial scenes for TAFE Queensland’s new campaign.

The imagery takes the viewer forward in time once a student has graduated TAFE training, out into authentic scenes in various professional fields.

Here are some select images from the campaign, which rolled out across outdoor, digital and social.

Sun Super commissions The Ol’ Boys project to lead new print campaign

I was honoured when James Burchill at Rumble showed financial services brand Sun Super The Ol’ Boys and suggested they commission the works for their new print campaign. It’s a wonderful feeling to have work come directly out of personal projects. We recreated 5 new The Ol’ Boys portraits especially for them.

This campaign is out now and it’s nice to see them printed very large in some very prominent places.

Billy Cross for The Weekend Australian

Had the pleasure of photographing performer turned-entertainment mogul Billy Cross for the cover of The Weekend Australian. We did a range of images in studio and around his home. Billy was a great subject who put a lot of energy into our shoot and the results show. The cover is a nod back to his performing days in male review Manpower. There were so many great images that could have been used. Here’s the cover and insert page along with one of my favs. What a great afternoon

True Disbeliever

I can’t think of anyone I’ve met in person that I have less in common with then Senator Malcolm Roberts. He is a straight up climate change denier, which, coupled with his party’s views on immigration and multiculturalism are kind of at odds with my ethnically-diverse heritage with 2 mixed race children, & 24 solar panels on my home in my adopted country. But sometimes differences make nice pictures, and we had a nice time on this shoot. We casually discussed our differing views, with neither of us successful in changing the others beliefs, & that was that. Images for a story penned by Richard Guilliatt which ran in The Weekend Australian last week
