Tis Getting Close to the End People...

After a couple of quick fire tweets I might have a shoot at the State Library in Victoria ready to go. This is GREAT NEWS!!

I have 2-3 other shoots waiting on confirmations, but it is looking pretty busy at the moment.

If you wanted any photography work done before Christmas done, please contact me ASAP as time and spots are filling fast.

Women in the Lens

If your in Melbourne and and have an hour or two to spend looking at some lovely photos, pop into Source Photographica.

I'm a bit late on this as the exhibition finish's tomorrow 30th October, but I was there today and had to make sure my pockets were tapped shut because there was at least 10 pictures I REALLY wanted to buy.

If you have a chance, go to the Gallery at 1a Rose St Brighton 3186 or take a look at the online catalog.

Shopping at Image Melbourne

Popped into Image Melbourne today to spend up on some lovely new gear.

Picked up 2 x 300W Strobe Flash; 2 x Stands; 2 x 80cm x 120cm Soft Box's; and a multitude of cables and bits and bobs to go with it.

I love using this local company. They import their own items as well as selling some brand name stuff. All the items are quite good quality wise, and cheap for something that is sold in a retail store. The best thing is the service they provide.

I asked then about a cable for a Sekonic light meter that I own. I wanted to be able to measure the light as well as set the flash off at the same time. I also wanted to take a photo while I did it so I could measure the flash at the same time. I left my name and number and got a call about an hour later with a 5min voice mail on what cables I should use and how it would all work.

Now that's FABULOUS customer service. I shop at Image Melbourne a lot, and will continue to do so.

Wedding Shoot on the Weekend..

Today is a finalizing day for me as tomorrow it's get packed and ready for a full day of Wedding Shots on Saturday..

As long as the rain holds off here in Melbourne, it should be a lovely day for some photos of a lovely couple. Can't wait to sink my teeth in..

I have been ringing around to try and find a thread reducer for my Mamiya RB67 so I can fit it to my tripod with no luck so far.

Back to the phones for me then.......

aboc Summer Sprint Series

I have a full day of shooting Cycling at the aboc Summer Sprint Series. It's kinda hard trying to shoot interesting angles and images at the cycling, especially a Velodrome. 

 So for me I think I'm starting to make it Big Time......... And cue the music..
