Tween Boy Photo Session - Brothers and Best Friends

I had a great shoot with two lovely, polite boys who clearly enjoyed each other's company which makes my job entirely easy! The portrait session was in my home studio and as it was a lovely day, we were able to photograph outside as well as inside, giving us a large variety of shots!

Business Headshots and Profile Images


This week, saw a number of executives stop by for business photographs. 


Some were for professional profile images such as LinkedIn, others were for printed sales material and others, websites. 


No matter which, your profile image is your link to the outside professional world and should look amazing. 


Without a profile image, you look as though you are hiding something. Without a recent, professional looking image, you are failing to make that vital good first impression.


With proper lighting and some editing, it is possible to produce such an image...


These images can be created in our Chatswood studio or at your own office.









and don't worry about the odd scar or blemish....we take care of that too...


Before and After editing...

Business Headshot - Portrait of a Celebrant..




Today I had the lucky pleasure of meeting Mr Ross Wellings. A Chatswood resident for at least 40 years, it turns out that The Wellings had been neighbors of The Beilbys way back in 1971.

A Civil Marriage Celebrant, Mr Wellings was in need of updated business portraits for his website and profile on celebrant.com.au. I was happy to oblige. 

An endearing man, I couldn't think of anyone better to reside over a wedding.

Tween Portrait Session

What to do with a Tween boy? Not too much actually. Little James was brilliant at having his own fun. His mother had prepared him well and he was relaxed and completely comfortable in front of the camera - the perfect subject!

Rather, it was I who experienced difficulties. Of the technical kind, that is. I had tested my lights the day before and they had worked well. A tricky setup where I am sending my USA lights through a converter and battery pack but apparently I had blown a fuse and didn't realise it. However, we managed to make it work.

Swim Action Photography - SMNE Nov 2011

Another successful meet for the Lane Cove Swim Club. We really enjoy these SMNE meets as they are well organized, they combine the little and big swimmers and they are generally on time...it also was great that we won the door prize - a money tree full of scratch-it tickets.

Here are some of the highlights:

Sydney Harbour from Luna Park

Whilst the kids had a ton of fun on the rides at Luna Park, I spent a short while taking some images of Sydney Harbour. It was kind of an icky day but nonetheless, a pretty aspect of the harbour.

Location Portrait Session

I love outdoor shoots. Pile a bunch of camera, lighting gear and paraphernalia into the boot and head to a complimentary location. Just have to remember the all important - memory card (had to make a quick trip home...doh!)

Today we are at a wild strip of land just above Chatswood Golf Club. I loved the look of the long feral grass which was the perfect backdrop to my very own uninhibited child. Despite my clothing suggestions, we went with her diamond studded pajamas. Therefore I had to crop in pretty tight.

The sun was in and out of the clouds which makes for a challenging shoot, but with reflectors and flashes, we were able to cope pretty well with it. Other than these usual challenges, I am pretty happy with the results for this outdoor portrait session.
