This afternoon has been cruel. I was in the car driving listening to Kelly Higgins Devine and Matt Preston talk on 612 ABC Brisbane about food and Matt’s new book “Fast, Fresh and Unbelievably Delicious”.
Then the discussion went to burgers. Yes, I love a great burger. Matt says it’s important to get the burger to match the size of the bun and have it lubricated with a generous dollop of mayo or sauce or some other tasty condiment. This way, everything stays together and you don’t et a mess sliding down your forearms onto your pants.
Here’s my problem, as I was listening, I hadn’t had lunch yet so I was dreaming of a great burger like these beauties from a menu photoshoot I did recently at Riverbar and Kitchen.
Cruel lunchtime timing Kelly Higgins Devine, you and Mat have got me wanting burgers!
I’ve always enjoyed watching Masterchef so it was lovely to meet Neha. Before the shoot, we catted about ideas, looks and styling. The images here are just a few from our shoot. Neha now has a bunch of unique images she can send to media to accompany press articles.
Headshot photography need not be just a boring head and shoulders shot. Our approach is to personalise the images to reflect your personality and role so you have a collection of images you can use for any purpose.
Noodles, I simply love them. So when photographing a noodle class for the SBS Feast magazine feature, I was taking mental notes, do try this at home.
I spent an afternoon with Sally Lynch from Taste Trekkers as she made German Spätzle and Vietnamese pho. Sally is a lifelong foodie sharing her passion with those she meets. As well as cooking classes, Sally takes groups on treks to multicultural neighbourhoods helping trekkers discover the how, what and why of what’s in little bottles and jars. Sally also reveals where to go to get the good stuff.
Back to the noodles. Sally is chatting away as she’s prepping her Vietnamese beef pho and rice noodles. Before long, a delicious dish is complete save for a squeeze of lime. The photos you see here are as Sally prepared her beef pho with rice noodle step by step.

Give your customers and potential customers a VIP experience by introducing them to your team and taking them behind the scenes of your business.
Have you ever had a back stage pass to a concert or had a tour of a factory?
The VIP lanyard securely around your neck, high visibility vest on, the security door opens, you enter the factory. Wow, so this is where it all happens…
Back stage passes, factory tours, pit and paddock passes, VIP meet and greets with artists, chefs, sporting personalities. These are all high value, exclusive experiences that people love, buy merchandise from and tell their friends about. VIP visitors can quickly become your brand advocates and raving fans.
But is it possible for businesses to give customers a VIP experience without needing a lanyard?
These days, with business being so competitive, finding and implementing strategies to increase customer engagement is so important. Building authentic relationships with our clients by showing who we are, what we do and where we do it goes a long way to making interactions with our clients a more personalised experience that can be shared with others.
With so much “jump up and down look at me” marketing going on, consumers are hard to engage. Openness is a crucial element in building trust. Professional documentary photographs can open the door for your customers to your business and be a core part of your social media strategy.
So how is your marketing strategy going? Does your plan include strategies to present who you are and share what you do with your customers and potential customers?
Our approach to commercial and workplace photography is to work with our clients to provide them with a library of unique professional documentary images of their workplace, environmental portraits of the real people who work there, the products and services they deliver and how they do it.
These photographs are especially effective when used as part of a cohesive marketing strategy on company websites, brochures, social media, reports, printed and online advertising and and press articles.
Is it time for you to get ahead of your competitors and open the doors of your business to your customers and potential customers?
Begin building your own library of professional images by contacting us, we’ll be in touch to learn about you and your business and how our images can help you.
It’s July, my mind soon turns to all things French. I love winter warming dishes like beef bourguignon, watching the Tour de France and Bastille Day. Seeing quaint petite villages on the telly takes me back to my times living in France. We’ve visited most regions. For me, our time in Burgundy was a highlight, we lived in a little village just outside Beaune. I’ve left part of my heart in France, I must go back to find it one day.
Photographing French born Brisbane chef Thierry Galichet from Montrachet was a great day. Entering the dining room at Montrachet make me feel like I’ve travelled back to France. My brief for this shoot was to go behind the scenes and photograph chef in action for SBS Feast Magazine. I love these shoots, the dishes are chef favourites, often childhood memories and a story to be told.
Enjoy the photos, you can get the whole story on Thierry Galichet and the recipes in the August 2013 issue of SBS Feast magazine on sale now.
