This morning I started with a commercial shoot for HSBC Ban followed by Real Estate Photography. The day finished with family and graduation photography.
It seems that we are getting into our busy period now with 6 childcare centers booked between now and Christmas. Christmas will also be a busy time as we photograph Santa photos for various schopping centers around Melbourne.
Today I photographed a member of our BNI group who claimed that she never takes good photos. When I sent her the proofs she was so thrilled that she purchased 14 digital files. I love it when this happens because it means I’ve done my job well.
Today I photographed a family down at Port Melbourne Beach. The children had too much energy to sit for a posed photo so we just captured them playing in the sand. The results were fantastic and the memories are so much nicer than poses studio photos.
My graphic artist and I just finished a job for a company, which commissioned me to fly around Australia to photograph their executives, then bring them all into one collage. This is the result and it is now proudly displayed in the company foyer.
When Kay from Scentsational Handmade Soaps inquired about a product shoot, I didn’t expect it to be as creative as it was. Kay and I worked together in my studio to create some really beautiful images which made her product look delicious. I was really please with the results and look forward to great feedback once she publishes the images on her website.
I also managed to solve more further challenges as she required the service of a web designer. I introduced her to Kathie from ACS Webservices who I know will do an amazing job in order to drive their business further.
Yesterday I photographed a 16 year old boy who wants to become a model. So I spent about an hour with him and we captured some great studio and outdoor shots.
I’m now in the process of putting together a modeling portfolio which he can then take to modeling agents.
The portfolio consists of casual and formal photos as well as some experimental lighting in order to create some different effects.
I feel sure that this portfolio shows many aspects of my clients personality and he will get work from it.
