Jules Dolmans new folio

– posted by Kerry

"It is very hard for me to briefly describe the experience of working with Sally as it has touched on and influenced all aspects of  my photography career and is by far the best thing I have done.

When I first met Sally she told me she wanted me fall in love with photography again and if this is all she had helped me achieve I would have been very very happy.

Sally has not only helped me get the absolute best out of my current work and create a beautiful new folio but my core client work has been streamlined and simplified to give me the time for more creative projects.

I have learned so much from Sally's approach and also from the wonderful and talented assistants she has booked to work with me.

All I can really say is thankyou Sally and for anyone wanting to gain a true and honest perspective of their work Sally is the only person to approach and I look forward to working on a new folio in 2012 and beyond..."


Henryk Lobaczewski shoots in NYC

– posted by Kerry

Fashion loves its contrasts, and it’s safe to say that toughness and
femininity have one of the most passionate – if tumultuous –
When they get on, they get on like a house on fire.

Those two qualities – toughness and femininity – come together in
Henryk Lobaczewski‘s latest shoot. Photographed in New York, it’s what
characters of West Side Story might look like if you picked them up
out of the 1950s and placed them in the now. The rockabilly
pompadours, leather jackets, skinny jeans and cigarettes might not
change, but now our lead characters are sipping from McDonalds paper
cups and covering their quiffs with Alexander McQueen’s skull-stamped

Starring doll-faced models Tamara and Sofija from Women Direct in New
York, with styling by DeAndre DaCosta, it’s a collision of eras that
works beautifully.

– posted by Kerry

Breast Screen Victoria recently launched their Mobile Screening Service van and wanted photography done to show the new graphics on location and illustrate the van visits regional areas of Victoria.
"I had such great fun with this shoot. The van was in Foster and had to be shot on its way to Yarram.
I spent a day driving through Gippsland to find this location..... Such fun, a bright pink van in the green rolling hills."

Andrew Wuttke

– posted by Mel

A fashion (and people) photographer, who can shoot anything up to 20 finely tuned fashion portraits a day, he is fast,
focused and fastidious.
His sense of style and understanding of technology - and how the two can intertwine to make compelling compositions,
is sought after by many well known fashion labels. Whilst his communications skills and willingness to engage clients
in the shooting process is much loved by advertising and design art directors.

Regardless of the challenge Andrew steps up to the plate. Whether that be devising a lighting strategy never tried
before or hand crafting the perfect backdrop, or texture for the occassion. It’s not unusual to see Andrew on his hands
and knees, paint brush in one hand and jigsaw in the other, working on getting a prop just right before a shoot. Or
scouring eBay for an obscure theatre light he thinks will add the right amount of magic to an image.

Andrew’s outlook is always positive, fresh, enthusiastic and collaborative.
And his style is as versitile as his skill set.
