Tess Everett shoots for TimiAlaere.

– posted by Kerry

TimiAlaere, a new made-in-Australia women’s wear fashion label founded by Timi Onduku-Pedley makes its debuts into the fashion scene with a distinct design concept of eclectic, cross-cultural fusion of fashion aesthetics.   Timi fuses textiles, colours, originality and innovative illustrated images to launch TimiAlaere’s first line, the Afrizine collection.  

Drawing on a wealth of inspirations from the West, her African heritage and a myriad of other cultures, Timi has created the 2012 Afrizine trans-seasonal collection.  It is a timeless collection of versatile, playful basics, with simple easily wearable shapes that are chic with a touch of boho flair and exotic glam.

Using Timi’s exclusive and original illustrated images of women adorning a variety of head wrap designs; inspired by the universal head wrap styles of women around the world, in particular, African women’s intriguing and flamboyant head wrap culture. These head wrap images are hand printed on eco-friendly, soft and luxe modal jersey tees, tank dresses and tank tops, with complementing cardigans that are perfect layering pieces for warmer and cooler days. The effortlessly sexy limited edition print shorts, made with the quality and vivid cotton wax print hollandaise textiles produced and sourced from Europe, adds a trendy and polished touch to the first line. 

TimiAlaere’s 2012 Afrizine collection will soon be available online

Jules Tahan’s new folio.

– posted by Sally

Jules and I have been working with each other now for more than 3 years. He has an amazing business with Urban Angles and his 2 partners in real estate and property development photography.
I don’t work on that with Jules, my role is to advise and sort out his personal folio where he shoots people both in studio and on location.

People respond to Jules’ big and kind personality and this shines through in his portraits, be they migrant workers, children, animals, the aged or models.

He is extremely diverse in the way he shoots but the one constant is the final product.
Backed by a strong retouching arm, Jules’ treatment of images is what makes him stand out.

I love working with Jules, and I love his honesty.
Here are 3 favourite spreads from his latest folio.

Glenn Campbell’s new folio.

– posted by Sally

Glenn first contacted me in 2010. He is an incredibly busy Walkley award winning doco photographer shooting across the NT and Western Australia along with being posted on international shoots covering war torn countries.

We finally met up in February 2012 when he flew down from Darwin for the day to work with me.

Pulling together his extensive body of work was no mean feat, but we came up with a folio that he will be directing at the design and commercial arena, along with initiating direct business.

Here are 3 of my favourite spreads.


HENRYK ‘While We Were Dreaming’ Solo Exhibit at RTIST Gallery

– posted by Kerry

Opening 7.30PM Thursday, 22nd of March 2012

Running until Thursday, 5th of April, 2012.

RTIST Gallery 29 St Edmonds Rd, Prahran

RTIST Gallery presents its first entire photography exhibition. This selection of work is titled 'While We Were Dreaming' by award winning photographer Henryk Lobaczewski. "It plays on how we are not in touch with the world around us, so much so that we could well be walking around with our eyes closed, absent, connecting with our phones and not the people around us, or staring off into a future based fantasy" states Henryk.

Highly regarded Sydney-based photographer Henryk Lobaczewski shoots mainly fashion-advertising, beauty and editorial, but his portfolio goes deeper. A beautiful glossiness seems to permeate every section of his work, but it often has a few little touches that bring it back to the real world – a little imperfection, a little quirk. Once you look through the images, it's interesting to note that he is entirely self-taught. Henryk has also exhibited at the Powerhouse in Brisbane.

Advertising clients include Inika Cosmetics, Lorna Jane, Triumph Lingerie, Toni & Guy, AKA Tognini's, Westfield, Men's Health, Women's Health, as well as celebrity portraits such as Angus & Julia Stone and Mike Goldman.

Henryk is based between Sydney & New York, and shoots for national & international clients worldwide.

The exhibition opens to the general public at 7.30PM on Thursday the 22nd of March and runs until Thursday the 5th of April, 2012.

Mardiana graduated from RMIT BA Photography 2011, she was awarded with the ACMP Student Photographer of The Year prize for her work in portraiture.

For this series of work she wanted the tables to be turned. These are portraits of photographers, and she explores how it feels for the photographer to be in a vulnerable position.

To promote an appreciation of the art of photography, to share knowledge, to

Chris Polack Master Class

– posted by Kerry

Chris Polack is now one of the world’s most celebrated BMX photographers. The founder of seminal BMX magazine Rebelyell, Polack has been named one of the world’s top ten BMX photographers.

Polack’s hunger for life has taken him right around the world, and his grimy, stylized BMX photography has gained him commissions from clients like Nike, Red Bull, Carhartt and Vans. While this has brought its own perks, with all expenses paid 5-star hotel stays and chauffeurs, Polack fully embraces the flip side of that coin.  Though the law doesn’t always agree with Polack’s ideas about how to get the best shot, he’s not willing to compromise

His experience in BMX photography has honed fast reflexes and an intimate feel for action. Whether he’s shooting stocky guys on tiny bikes, fashion models, or any of the colourful characters around his studio, Polack brings a fresh eye to the world, capturing movement and pinning a small piece of life to the page.

Ross Calia makes 2012 ‘Aesthetica’ creative annual.

– posted by Kerry

UK based, International Arts and Culture Magazine ‘Aesthetica’ has published its 2012 creative annual, featuring the work of Ross Calia entitled ‘The Office’:

‘Despite the sheer mass of the drab concrete and the strict formation of the gridded windows, The Office, through the beautiful disorder of the blinds and cubicles to the workers’ daydream stares, ultimately is an optimistic expression of the human spirit: That despite the apparent confines of buildings and suits, our thoughts remain free and unbound’.


Jess Bialek celebrates 50 years of The Australian Ballet.

– posted by Sally

To help celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Australian Ballet, Jess Bialek ascended the sails of the iconic Sydney Opera House for a photo shoot with a difference.
In light of the Ballet's current collaboration with Bangarra Dance Theatre, principal ballerina Amber Scott shared the spectacular scene with Patrick Thaiday.
After being harnessed up to the hilt, and waiting for the stormy weather to clear, the trio shared a once in a lifetime experience atop the architectural gem.
