Rural shoot with heavy horses

Late last year we had another rural shoot, we sort of live in the country, but loving getting to work in real rural areas. (Please note all businesses and agencies: we love to travel to shoot photos for you!) This shoot was for a social media project for a client who had arranged for us to capture images of an old farm and the stunning heavy horses in harness. Here are just a few of the hundreds of photos from the day:

A commercial shoot for Pioneer Australia

Last week saw us out at Casino (a couple of hours south-west from here) to photograph 2 reps from Pioneer Seeds Australia for their online and print promotional products. We asked the universe for good weather and some great clouds and thats certainly what we got. The late afternoon sun was a bit strong at times, but nothing these two great guys from the country couldn't handle - no sunglasses for these guys. The agency and Pioneer Seeds were really happy with the results: "Absolutely sensational…I couldn’t be happier…and we will certainly use them again!"

Art Gallery Cafe shoot

Earlier this year, we had a fun shoot on a warm summers day at the Art Gallery Cafe in the Tweed Valley. This lovely mother and daughter combo helped us out with their exploration of the gallery, its shop and all the delicious delights of this cafe, which is now being run by Peter and Charlies of Mavises Kitchen fame. Hope our photos have you salivating!

From old to new

Easier this year we had a request that was a bit unusual for us. That was to restore an old photo. We felt we had the experience and the software and had worked on our own families old photos. So we took on this photo that was highly significant for the family concerned. We did the work in front of them so they got to see all the steps involved and so we knew how far they wanted us to go with fixing blemishes etc. So here is the original and one of the finished versions, cropped to suit the way they wanted to print and display it. They were stoked with the result!

A short stay in Bellingen

In late October, I took my mother, Eleanor, down to Bellingen for a girls' trip away. We stayed at a lovely little Airbnb called "the Dairy Bales" near Thora, further up the beautiful river valley from Bellingen. It was the perfect time of year, with the silky oaks in flower and black cockatoos screeching as they feasted. The scenery was stunning, as you will see, and the cottage was truly delightful. And at last, I made it to The Promised Land! Yes that is a real place, near Glennifer and can be seen in the last photo below. Here are a few of my favourites from the stay:
