With a New Year comes the need to look at your images, redefine who you are as a photographer and get your work and marketing in order.

For over 15 years I have been working with photographers on editing images and giving them a critical appraisal of their work.

Building portfolios is what I do, I love it and I love helping photographers be the best they can be.

If you are wanting a printed portfolio, an online portfolio, help with editing images for your website or exhibition, please give me a call to discuss.

I am based in Melbourne, travel to Sydney a few times a year and work via Skype all over the world to achieve unique bodies of work for each individual photographer.

It may just be a consultation you are after where we can sit down and together work out a strategy and plan for you, I can appraise your work and feed you ideas for new shoots, ignite your passion and re-energise you.

Or we can go directly into working on all of your images and collating a strong, emotive, individual body of work.

I look forward to speaking with you.

A contemporary photobook festival is the product of observation, conversation and collaboration.

With a deep passion for photography, typography and the printed book, Heidi Romano (Unless you will) and her team have curated a festival to engage, challenge and educate a photographic audience. A festival to exchange views on experimentation, curation and collaboration. Research through process and practice.

Photobook Melbourne is an artist-run, not for profit organization dedicated to creating a platform for experimental and innovative artistic photography and book making practices. A platform for local and international artists, bookmakers and book lovers to discuss, examine and appreciate marvellous imagery and outstanding storytelling.

Photobook Melbourne will bring together expertise and insight directly from the world’s greatest photographers, graphic designers, curators, publishers & printers. Their aim is to share knowledge with professional photographers, passionate amateurs and the inquisitive book lover. Initiating conversations about the nature of self publishing, form and function, practice and process.

Over the course of 10 days (12-22 Feb 2015), Photobook Melbourne's program includes talks, exhibitions (prints and photobooks), workshops, studio visits and of course loads of events on photobooks including Photobook Melbourne Fair, Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards exhibition and a workshop with Ron Jude; ‘A Handful of Sand: Wrestling with Narrative Structure in the Photobook’.
