Brisbane Personal Branding Photographer | Photo of the Day – Kara

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing my lovely sister Kara again for some updated headshots. She has had a massive year of change, selling her successful beauty salon to now working full time and reigniting her passion for makeup. She is an incredibly talented makeup artist and has a new found passion for organic makeup. So we wanted to create a series of headshots that incorporated this.

So the idea for Kara’s updated headshots was that we wanted to include a mixture of different photos – some with clean backgrounds and some a little more creative. I absolutely love that with Personal Branding and social media as photographers we don’t have to produce boring headshots. We can be creative, create interesting background, include objects that mean something to the person to allow viewers to connect on a deeper level. This shot incorporated lots of different textures and of course makeup to give the viewer a quick understanding of exactly what Kara does. Love it!

The Rocks Yandina Wedding Photography | Photo of the Day – Dusk Kisses

One of the things I absolutely love seeing as a wedding photographer is how each of my couples want to make their wedding days unique to them. Sam & Von had an early morning wedding ceremony followed by a lunch reception with their closest family and friends. They wanted the vibe of their reception to be relaxed, joyful and fun. One of the ways they encouraged this was to have little games that the guests could play throughout the afternoon.. One of those games was “Kiss”.. So whenever the guests clinked their glasses, Sam & Von had to stand up on their chairs and kiss.. and whenever the guests banged on the table they had to get under the table and kiss… This happened quite a lot throughout the day and never got old! This was one of the beautiful kisses just around sunset. Such a beautiful moment for them to remember the fun they had at their reception!

Brisbane Personal Branding Photographer | What I learnt from watching & photographing Elko Fields on Stage

Over the weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the awesome grassroots music festival that is Outside Tribe. It was such an amazing experience to be part of and GD and I had an absolute ball even though we were “working”. It was an insanely long day and I am still catching up on sleep (seriously I am getting old haha) but I feel incredibly recharged by the experience. I think that comes from being part of something that was fun, relaxing and just full of creativity. Plus I got to step outside my photography comfort zone and do something a little different.

And secondly there was one particular artist that I just can’t stop thinking about… Elko Fields.

Seriously. These guys rocked it!! As soon as they took the stage, I couldn’t look away. I snapped way too many photos! I don’t normally listen to too much heavy rock, but I could of rocked out to these guys all night long! You couldn’t help but move your body and get into the spirit of the music with these guys.. To be honest I am quite surprised that the photos were in focus hahah

Kella the lead singer was seriously amazing!! As soon as she stepped on to that stage she was all in. She gave 150% and owned that stage. She rocked that guitar, sang like it was the last time she would ever perform and rocked out with Jhindu the drummer like they were the only two people in the room.

Her passion, her presence, her confidence and her talent…. all of it was so infectious!! I can’t help but be inspired to pursue my passions in life with the same gusto and confidence that Kella does!!!

And we can’t forget the other half that makes up Elko Fields – Jhindu. He owned that drumset too and wasn’t afraid to rock it out with Kella on stage. I mean seriously… look at how much fun he is having!!

One of my big realisations over the weekend was that I need to do more of this kind of thing.. Stepping outside of my comfort zone, being social, living life and not just being all business. Elko Fields inspired me to reignite my passion as a photographer and give it all I’ve got.. These guys are going places and I can’t wait to see where that journey takes them. It was a privilege to see them perform at Outside Tribe.

Brisbane Photographer | Outside Tribe Music & Arts Festival

Over the weekend I had the absolute pleasure of attending the awesome Outside Tribe Music & Art’s Festival! Outside Tribe is a music festival like no other. It is a combination of music, arts, markets, family, camping and good times. Started five years ago as a birthday party, everyone enjoyed the experience so much that Taylor & Jess decided to put it on again… and again.. and grew it to what it is today. They really wanted to create a unique family friendly experience that all ages would enjoy. And enjoy we did!

These awesome aerial shots where taken by GD from

There were so many awesome activities for the kids from the craft corner to jumping castle to hula hooping. The kids had an absolute ball!

As well as the main stage their was a food truck and market area for everyone to enjoy.

The first act of the day Dan Poloni who really got the lunchtime grooves happening.

After Dan, the lovely Dana Gehrman bought her unique 70’s country inspired vibe to the crowd. Dan also joined Dana on stage for a few tunes.

Joshua Jacobz was the awesome busker who played in between the main stage over in the market area.

After Dana the lovely Shukura Chapman took to the stage. Shukura is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who’s sounds could be described as a fusion of soul, roots and blues.

Then Boatkeeper took to the stage. Boatkeeper was one of my fave bands! Seriously go check them out on iTunes/Spotify. I have been listening to their EP all day! This awesome band from Nth Queensland could be described as soulful acoustic folk!

One of the unique aspects of this music festival is that it is family friendly. It was so awesome to see the kids dancing around in front of the stage throughout the day enjoying the music.

After Boatkeeper the lovely Emily Wurramara brought her beautiful indigenous folk to the stage.

As the sun set the psychedelic rock band Papperbok took the vibe from afternoon to even.

As soon as the sun had completely set, the bonfire was lit and the awesome Deena took to the stage. Deena’s sound could be described as gritty fierce indie rock.

After Deena set the move and started the crowd moving, Elko Fields took to the stage. And seriously all I can say about these guys is WOW! Elko Fields owned that stage and brought the house down with their rock and roll!

Then the Brown Sounds Synthesizer Experience took to the stage and the crowd went wild to their retro tunes.

Nothing like a bit of 80’s pop to get the crowd moving!

The second last act for the night were The Honey Sliders who rocked out with their eclectic mix of rock, soul, country and blues.

Dana also joined the Honey Sliders on stage for a few tunes

The final act of the night was local band Bullhorn. Bullhorn ended the night with a brass bang! This brass band MC lead had everyone on their feet enjoying their sweet tunes.

What an amazing day & night. GD and I had such a ball capturing video and photos of the day. A massive thank you to Taylor & Jess for putting on the event and asking us to be involved! Can’t wait for the next one!!
