a few pages from Toby Scott’s folio.

– posted by Sally

Toby first flew down to meet me from Brisbane in August 2010 where we began working on a folio for him.

It was quite varied and Toby was really still trying to find his feet and establish a style with his photography.

Whilst he had many great images, there was nothing glueing them together and he was covering so many styles and subjects.

We had a great day, I answered alot of questions, then Toby jetted back to Brisbane .

We kept in constant contact and during this time Toby hooked up with an amazing Stylist/producer and began working on a new style and series of work.

This lead to the beginnings of some great commissioned work and then coming back down to Melbourne in April this year with nearly an entire body of new work.

I dont think I have ever worked with a photographer that has totally transformed themselves in such a short peiod of time.

He has found his feet, shooting with gusto and found a clean stlye that suits him to a tea.

I love these three new spreads. Well done Toby.

I love working with James Knowler.

He is a ball of energy, always has a great story and takes amazing pics on a variety of topics too.

I love that he shows his personal images of amazing bike tours he has been on alongside commissioned work from Mine sites . Many of these you have seen featured on the blog before.

James is also an excellent interiors shooter and here are three pages form a second folio we produced to target interior designers and architects. He has a great team to work with on these projects and has been published far and wide.

Ross Calia- Kodak Salon “Best Documentary Image” WINNER.

– posted by Sally

Congratulations to Ross Calia who was awarded the ‘Best Documentary Photograph’ award at the 2011 Kodak Salon for his image ‘The Mechanic’.

Ross also won this award in 2010 for his image ‘Office’.

‘My guess is that it was still daylight when the mechanic left his garage for the day, not realising his office light was still on: I came across this scene after midnight, by which time his ordinarily one-way glass was transformed into a viewing portal for passersby. Best viewed large on the 30 inch print, the detail tells much about the absent subject’.

The Kodak Salon is one of the largest and most renowned photographic award exhibitions in the country, including artists from all around Australia,


“Untangle the Knot” photography competition winner.

– posted by Kerry

The ‘Untangle the Knot’ Competition’ is an extension of ASCA’s annual ‘Forget me Knot’ Day annual campaign in November when Australians are encouraged to show their support for more than two million adult Australian survivors of childhood abuse.  According to ASCA CEO Dr Cathy Kezelman, “We chose a public art competition to encourage thinking, discussion and debate about a challenge faced by more than two million Australian adult survivors and their family, friends and communities. We chose the knot to help explain the struggle or ‘tangle’ survivors encounter as they live with and attempt to overcome the damage inflicted by childhood abuse.

The competition was judged at the Frances Keevil Gallery in Double Bay on Thursday June 9 by Sydney-based art photographer, Mark Tedeschi and Curator of Photography, State Library of NSW, Alan Davies.

David Patston won the competition with his entry of "Matryoshka's Shell" 

"My starting point for “Matryoshka's Shell” was the notion that the emotional or psychological knots that bind us are usually hidden.  I thought that opening up a Matryoshka doll to reveal course, knotted nylon rope snaking over the second doll was an apt metaphor revealing that, just below the outer layer, our tangled knots can be exposed. 

And to realise it into a personal context, I chose to bring the visual element of reflection to the image.  For me it implies an adult’s view back to childhood.   Fond hazy memories of the kind of patterned wallpaper that seem to have covered every wall in every room from my childhood represent an uncluttered, simple place against which to contrast. 

By drawing sharp focus on my subject in such a fuzzy warm place, I hope to suggest that once the hidden knots are clearly seen and identified, it might be possible to untangle them."
