Lucky Film & The Nikon F3

An important roll for me.. through an iconic camera I have been very lucky to borrow from my good friend Daniel K Cheung. Paired with the Nikon 50mm 1.4D this special camera for me symbolizes great technological feats. Its pretty.. well constructed.. full of dials but most importantly it has character. It is built like a tank and goes like a tank. This one has had an easy life, but I can imagine some of the journo F3’s floating around would tell a different story (as would the rolls produced from it). So how does it stack up? I would have to say that I am very impressed indeed.. impressed so much that I now say I MUST have one.. it WILL be mine… oh yes…

Terry + Val | Engagement

Once again I am lucky to have been asked back by Daniel K Cheung to assist him with some more of his wedding work. This is a great opportunity to work with someone who is very passionate about his photography and his approach to the couple and the way he is always striving to give them the best he possibly can is very inspiring. This is leading on from my last post about location scouting, and these are the first results from this scout mission.

So now let me introduce you to Terry & Val. A lovely couple who are based in Sydney and found Daniel through some mutual friends. Unlike the previous shoots I have been on with Daniel this one was a shoot and meet/greet.. which is always challenging as you are building that rapport with the couple whilst taking invasive candid photos of them. Ok .. well not very invasive but when you havent done it much before then how are you to relax whilst big  glass is pointed your way?

My parents always thought that I would be a used car salesman…

An Afternoon Scouting Mission..

Scouting locations for potential shoots is no easy task. You can potentially shoot anywhere dependent on the conditions, but having some favourite places with ideas and known ways to execute shots can add a whole new dimension to the final result. A lot of people look at photos and may not in fact think about the time spent in being able to create that shot. Not only does it take time with the styling of the shot itself, the accumulation of the gear, the scheduling of the subjects, the years of learning the skills.. but the countless hours in planning locations.

After another sunrise at the Mahon Pool,  Daniel and I had decided to take a trip around the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for some new spots to shoot potential fashion, beauty and couple styled shoots.
