real pictures

The film vs digital war still wages, regardless of who’s winning each side still has its stalwarts. Today I met a very old, grumpy man, he asked me as I took photos of his home on my dslr, how I could be happy never having any real photos to take home. I asked him what he meant. He got out his polaroid camera, took a snap of me near the window and gave it to me. “That’s a real photo, there, for you” he said. I tried to explain that my photos were real, I just had a different way of sharing them, even though I can very well see his point of view. What was funny though was later when the discussion was over, I took out my iphone, snapped a shot of my portrait to put on instagram/facebook and he, after a brief explanation of my actions said “well that is clever, it is good your friends will see your picture”…..

To celebrate I would like to share a personal project.  Recently I was commissioned by Lindsay from Belle Epoque Events to create three images for a fundraising event entitled ‘Back From Black’ to be held Friday 26th October.  This week!  This event will raise funds for the Black Dog Institute (more info here  It’s an extremely worthwhile cause and the night should prove a very innovative way of holding a silent auction!

So too the prints!  The brief was to show the evolution from illness, to treatment and then a bright future and with the Black Dog Institute’s focus on family and friends, I chose to show how although you may feel alone, small and sad.  You never are, there are people to help if you look…












Hello world!

This a place to share what I am seeing.  What I am making.  For friends, clients, family and all to keep up to date with the wonderful weddings and projects I have coming up.  Thanks for viewing!
