Hopped aboard a catamaran with some friends to experience the Whitsunday Coast in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.
Really stoked to announce that the campaign we shot for Costa via McGarragh Jessee won 2 Addys (American Advertising Awards)! 1 x Gold in the Magazine Campaign category, and 1 x Gold in Elements of Advertising (Photography Craft) category.
It was also included in Campaign Brief’s The Work 2020 which curates the best advertising work of the previous year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
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.
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
In June 2017 I went and visited some friends of mine. During my time there I made a short film. The film is a motion portrait of Sam, as told by his wife George, who together with their children live on Tennessee, a farming property beyond the Great Dividing Range in Queensland, Australia. The film discusses the isolation, hard work and sense of calling of working and living on the land in Australia. Click on the image above to view the film

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.
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:
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!
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.
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.
