Congratulations Mauro Risch

Mauro has been awarded 5 nominations in the 5th Annual Black and White Spider Awards 2009/10.

Four of the nominations were for his advertising work and one for his fine art image "Bird Cage."

One of his advertising pieces, "pile o'coke" was shot for Coca-Cola. It was a delivery campaign and the image has been printed on the back of a few magazines. Mauro says he had a great time doing the shoot.

He shot it with a 4X5' Sinar X, 360mm Rodenstock and a BetterLight digital back. He used only continuous light and shot tungsten 3200K.

A few pages from Lucia Ondrusova’s folio

– posted by Sally

I met Lucia on a 45 degree day in February this year.

She had heard about me over the past year and decided that it was time for me to look at her work.

Lucia showed me a lot of her images and many were simple, well shot, corporate shoots that suggested to me she would be a great portrature photographer.

Her fashion work showed she has a great knack for finding excellent locations and interesting models.

At the beginning of her career it’s easy to see that her folio will be changing a lot over the next few years and her ability to edit images as well.

We ended up with a strong folio of portraiture that portrays her sense of style and beauty.

Check out this clip. It's really great.

This guy walked across the USA with his Canon 5DmkII.

He has put together a stop motion clip and well worth a few moments to have a look. 


A few of my favourite pages from Armelle Habib’s folio.

– posted by Sally

Armelle was a student of mine at RMIT.

After college we lost contact for a few years and then about 18 months ago I bumped into her in a studio in Prahran, Melbourne.

She got in touch with me and together we worked on a new folio for her.

Like many graduating students, Armelle’s folio had not changed much since college finished.

Her folio needed a new direction and a total revamp.

Armelle has good ideas and a strong sense of who she is as a photographer.

Finally after several heavy discussions on a day of designing the folio, we came up with a ripper.

Here are a few of those pages. 


Julian Watt shoots the Bundy Bear.

– posted by Kerry

This is the first shoot I did since joining C.I. Studios.

The shoot was for Bundaberg Red. We worked with Art Director, Tim Green from

Leo Burnett, Sydney.

Happily, we were not asked to shoot around the TVC but

were asked to shoot a series of "spaghetti western" style posters that tied

in with the TVC. The agency gave us time to shoot a test shot which helped

us refine the retouching treatment and lighting style for each shot.

The guys from C.I.Studios did an awesome job on production, retouching and

generally backing me up whenever I needed it.
