LinkedIn Headshot Session with a twist! - Portrait Shoot in Chatswood, Sydney Studio

Nice Dramatic B&W Photo for the LinkedIn or the wife!

Generally, we go for the more conservative background colours but for this LinkedIn headshot session, we not only got to break out the coloured backdrops, we also got to shoot some more dramatic black and white portraits.

Why not, right? You want to stand out, make a statement. Especially on LinkedIn. If you scroll through all those profiles, you know who is going to make the biggest impact. Mike here will. One, because he took the time to have a professional photo but also because he chose a fabulous blue. 

We still shot on the more conservative background but now Mike has choices! 

These images are perfect for a variety of purposes not only for LinkedIn but for his website, professional organisation website, Facebook profile and as a gift for his wife!

The Gray is extremely versatile and fits well for a LinkedIn Profile photo or on a website.

Keywords The Key To Top Rated Google Searches - Top Lawyer LinkedIn Profile Photo Session

The Red background stands out as a LinkedIn Profile Photo

This nice clean image will feature on the front page of the website.
The smart and lovely Family Lawyer Anjli, was my subject for this session.

Anjli needed some headshots for her LinkedIn profile as well as her website for her firm, Western Sydney Legal Practice.

As we needed images for a variety of purposes, we shot on different coloured backgrounds and changed outfits a few times. 

Anjli ended up using the red for the LinkedIn which I just love. Scrolling down all of the LinkedIn profiles, she definitely makes an impression!

As search engines are unable to read images, it is important to load them with keywords and alt tags so that you can be found. It also increases ratings in Google searches. So we loaded Anjli's images for her LinkedIn and Website with relevant keywords including services they provide and location information. This is a service that we provide at no extra charge, so just come to your next shoot armed with your very own Keywords and we will stack them into your profile images!

See you at The Studio!

Walking Sydney - City to St Leonards

Sean giving us instructions
I joined this meetup group some time ago but haven't managed a walk until now. I am so pleased that I finally did.

We met in Lang Park in York Street. Our fearless leader, Sean handed us each a map and a few tips and suggestions for staying safe and then we were on our way.

Our First Stop at Observatory Hill
Setting a pretty fast pace, we headed to Observatory Hill where we quickly stopped to regroup then walked over the Bridge to Kirribilli. There is a water fountain here, so a good spot to refill our water bottles.

Here is my map. The part to The Bridge is a little dodgy because of the GPS (I forgot to turn it on..doh!) but the rest is good. You can get to the Bridge numerous ways in any case.

Balls Head Reserve Coal Loader Tunnel



This is the tunnel from Balls Head Reserve toward the coal loader. It is only open on weekends. We didn't go through here on this particular walk. I took this image the next day on another walk.

If you are not with a group, I highly recommend a meal or at least a coffee at The Coal Loader Cafe before heading off.

You can vary this walk as we did the next day, parking at Waverton, getting the train to Milsons Point and walking back to Waverton station to get the car. This was 6.8k.

I thoroughly enjoyed both of these walks. 

Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

Interested in other walks? Here is my Chowder Bay walk.

If you like the photos, you may purchase prints, canvas or framed prints from my website.

Beautiful Teen Girl Portraits and Family Portrait In The Studio

Before Makeup and Hair

These sessions are a favourite because the Teens transform in front of your eyes. 

It's not just about the hair and makeup. I get guys in the studio too. It's because they have the freedom to express themselves for who they are and we have a lot of fun. 

For this shoot, we did have hair and makeup by the amazing MJ Park. We also added a Family Portrait session in at the end.

There is an overwhelming feeling of light and space when you first enter Sakura. It is open and spacious yet warm and comfortable.

The Gourmet Kitchen
Make yourself a cup of tea and sit in wonder at the forest scenery just outside. Sunrises and sunsets are glorious here so you may catch one of those as well.

Bedrooms
You will have a difficult time picking your favourite bedroom. Each is opulent and luxurious in its own right.  See what you think.

The beds are superb quality and I personally vouch for their comfort. The linens are all from Designer, Bianca Lorenne and they are magnificent.

The Forest Room
As well as being lovely, the forest room has the added benefit of facilities for physically challenged guests.

The Silver Birch Room (BOHO)
This serene room has the added benefit of overlooking the lily pond adding to its peaceful, spiritual feel.

The Lily Room
Whilst the rooms are bright and airy, they can also be made dark for that extra long sleep in. This is verified by the fact that my Teen was able to sleep until lunchtime!

The Lotus Room
This was my room and I can attest to the best sleep I've had in years. The bed was extremely comfortable. There were no surprising noises (in Oz you are startled into consciousness at dawn by a cacophony of laughing Kookaburras and screeching Cockatoos).

Hobbiton Movie Set Tour - A Definite New Zealand Must Do




I have not read or seen Lord of The Rings, yet I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I had read The Hobbit  and watched the film so I, had some idea and of course, know of the legendary director Peter Jackson.


Still, I found the entire village fascinating, even magical. This was not only due to sets and scenery but the fabulous stories told by our host like how the location was discovered, how news of the location leaked, how trees were planted and leaves handsewn, what filming tricks were used and where certain scenes were actually filmed. 


I just adored the Hobbit homes. Maybe because I'm actually hobbit sized myself. 

I hesitate to show you so many pictures because I really think you should go and experience it for yourself but if you have no immediate plans to visit, feel free to look on.




 






 This is the Party Tree where Bilbo's 111th and Frodo's 33rd (coming of age) birthday took place.

 If you don't think you will get to visit and want to read more about how the Hobbiton village came about, Steve Meacham does a great job in his Traveller article of relaying these stories as told by the family and our guide. There is also plenty of information on the Hobbiton website.

Meantime, thanks for stopping by this blog to look at the photos and I do hope you get a chance to visit.
