Our bespoke photography expresses the opulence of objects & machines built for pecunious individuals.
Whist it's tempting to say "I work in fashion" the reality is that a lot of clothing photography is about selling new seasons garments using quality cost effective multi-platform imagery.
We love to stretch the boundaries … talk to us for a creative adventure.
We also love our clients to be happy and sometimes that means fast turnaround of images created and sorted during the shoot in our comfortable studio with level access, parking, catering and cyclorama.

Photography is the fusion of Art. Science & Technology with her machines eager to drain the budding photographers bank account. I have to admit I have a soft spot for all the gizmos and gadgets that go with the game ….
The Machine Keeps Growing.
As a boy – it might have been a motor drive for my OM10 35mm SLR or some extension tubes for the 50mm lens.
As a pro in the film days there was a vast array of equipment 35mm – 645 medium format – 6x7, panoramas and large format cameras – supported by huge lighting kits and a team of assistants.
Nowadays it can be really complicated or really simple.
I like to keep it simple when I can.
But its all there in the studio if I need it.

Here is a tiny selection of places, people, events and curios. Some sell as prints at my exhibitions and others find there way to the bottom of the drawer only to appear when I am hunting for a lost sock.
“Yachting - I love it - so I know where to go to get the good shots” This is as sample of recent works - more marine photography in the Photo Nautical section of this site or Instagram photonautical.

Meet Mike McGee. Racing Car Driver. Farmer. Lord of the Minis.
They say if you have more than three of something you’re a collector. Some people collect ex wives, others collect knives. Mike McGee collects his favourite drive.
It’s a collection all right - more than thirty or forty Minis he reckons “They breed like Rabbits out here … they mysteriously turn up ready to go out to pasture”.
This was a photo shoot that’s been waiting to happen for more than twenty years. Yep – my bad – I haven’t dropped in on my Uncle Michael & Auntie Prue for a long time, but then again, their farm is more than eight hours North of Sydney and we do catch up at the usual family events or when Michael headed down to race meets in the city.
When I finally made the trip beyond Glen Innes I bought my mate Robert – Bob – Berkley along for the ride as he has a keen interest in old cars too. I didn’t explain much to Bob – I just said come along “you might like to meet my Uncle – he is one of a kind.”
After a couple of Tarantino-esque wrong turns down ghost town dirt roads we found Eastwood near Elsmore - a place where entropy was working to its full effect.
After an enthusiastic catch-up cuppa with my Auntie Prue & Michael we wandered across the land and found fields of Minis amongst unbroken horses. A parts department in the wool shed. A restoration hall in the machinery shed – projects a many underway. A cooper S Racer – in prep, Mokes & MG’s
Some of the minis looked rusted beyond repair – some were very unique – classics.
Some have dodged or taken a few bullets for the cause.
Mike McGee. Lord of the Lost Minis.
It is with deep sadness that as a Postscript to this photo series I have to report that Mike McGee lost his life on Friday 29th April 2016 following a racing accident in his white Mini during the Kempsey Hill Climb 24th April 2106. My thoughts and condolences are with his family during this tough time.
In death a hero, as in life a friend Henry W. Longfellow
