This weekend we had the opportunity to photograph the esteemed Fashions on the Field at the Geelong Revival. This part of the event is growing in stature every year seeing some beautifully dresssed ladies and gentlemen in period correct attire right down to the accessories!
The contestants competed for the honour of (more…)
An exclusive dinner for twenty five hand-picked guests with a special international guest and hosted by the top sales reps of Suntory! This was a great event and an interesting way of introducing Mount Gay Rum and the many cocktails that can be created from it. Each serving came out with a different Mount Gay inspired cocktail giving the guests an insight as to how well a cocktail can go with a meal. (more…)
On a rainy night in Melbourne, there was no better place for a photographer to be working than at Largerfield, Crown casino! The milkman had arrived carrying his new style of Midori mixed drinks in milk bottles and the patrons were eager to try them out.
Entertainment for the evening came in the form of a cocktail making competition by local staff. Our job was to photograph the Midori cocktail making competition seeing bar staff from across the city pit their skills against each other while creating mouth-watering cocktails utilising the green liqueur.

Last weekend saw the annual Camperdown Cruise fire up once again bringing rockabilly fans from all over the country for the four day festival held at Camperdown in south west Victoria. This historic town opens its doors every year as rockabilly bands from around the world converge on the little town ready to bring a taste of the fifties back to its tree laden streets. (more…)
After spending a month in America, it was interesting to observe the difference between the two cities of Los Angeles and Detroit. L.A, the city of angels has the continuous party feel about it bringing together all that encapsulates this West Coast metropolis. Motor city on the other hand has a working feel about it as it picks itself up off the ground and dusts itself off yet to visit its bars and cafes, one would assume that it has taken the knock well as its residents go about business as usual.

Photographing an event as fast paced as the recent Gin Mare cocktail finals has its own pressures and rewards. You need to be quick with the shots yet the scope for creativity is vast especially when it’s hosted in one of Melbourne’s elite establishments, the Candela Nuevo. Perched high on Melbourne’s skyline using a semi open room with a bar, contestants had a limited time in which to show their ability to create a number of cocktails containing the sponsored liquor.

Once again I got the call up to photograph the launch of a new liqueur known as LICOR43 and the range of drinks it can be used for. Capturing the action throughout the night comes easy when in the company of relaxed patrons and professional friendly hosts. The cream topped mini beers were the flavour (pardon the pun) of the night as the DJ pumped out the tunes adding to the ambience of the occasion. (more…)
Ever heard of a silent disco, well you’re not alone because I hadn’t either up until last night. The concept is simple, creative and it works! Last night I captured the action at the Jagermeister Bar Staff Incentive party at The Star Bar hotel in South Melbourne. The Kräuterlikör liqueur flowed freely amongst the patrons while donning headphones listening to one of three DJs pumping out a diverse genre of dance music. The silent disco has a certain verbal irony about it because, without headphones you can’t hear the music yet you still hear what everyone is saying…..or singing! (more…)
Hi, last weekend I headed to the St. Kilda festival along the picturesque St. Kilda foreshore. This annual event hosts a number of bands and buskers along with various trade stands and other entertainment. The festival runs for a week with the final day seeing crowds of around half a million take part in the festivities. (more…)
