Josh & Kira (Wedding)

Saturday was the big day for Josh and Kira. What a beautiful day it was too. This spunky couple were Sealed (Married for Time and Eternity) in the Temple (Brisbane Australia). The ceremony was finished around mid-day. After lots of hugs, kisses and congratulations with their family and friends we got some happy snaps together, followed by more at the reception held at Josh’s families home, after the reception we made the speedy get-away down to the beach for some more shots just before the sun went down. It was a great day. Excellent conditions for some super dooper shots!

Enjoy and of course please leave any comments below.

Josh and Kira (Pre-Wedding)

I had the privilege of shooting Josh and Kira for their Pre-wedding last night and thought I’d share a couple of pics from our shoot. They’re a cute couple who were great to work with. Enjoy the pics and leave a comment below!

I think this one could be an Ad for Rip Curl or something! 🙂


Princess Jade

This photo was taken for my daughter. I used my Canon 5D Mark II with my 50mm prime lens for this photo, I also used a reflector to bounce a little light back onto my cute little subject!

Here is a classic example of where you don’t have to go to some exotic location to get a good shot. This was taken in our front yard at about 4:15pm in the afternoon.

I wasn’t using any expensive lighting other than the Sun and a reflector.

I hope you like this photo, feel free to leave any comments or feedback below…

An Orthodontist on a Mission

This photo was taken on location today as part of a series of photos taken for this client Dr. Steve Semaan (Orthodontist). Dr. Semaan was looking for something unconventional and “different”. Something we may hear often from clients that they’re looking for something unique and different.

This shoot was great fun and Dr. Semaan was also relaxed and easy to work with and open to creative ideas and concepts put forward. Please feel free to leave a comment below with any thoughts or feedback. I hope you like my work. 🙂

Skate & Scooter

Check out the HUGE Air!!

This morning I started off at Pizey Park, Gold Coast to see if there was any skaters, BMX or scooter guys out doing cool tricks etc. I met some cool people as you’d expect and snapped a few pics.

One of my new scooter buddies who graciously pulled of some sweet airs for the camera 🙂 Thanks man…

The Varsity Lakes boys.

Getting some nice air! (I love the shadow!)

Love this shot!

This dude was awesome! Down from Mackay QLD for the holidays ripping it up at Varsity Skate park.


Nothing like a HUGE Flip! In this shot I was actually laying on the ground and he flipped right over the top of me! Crazy stuff but lots of fun!

Great day of shooting

Met this great guy out the back of the golf club today when I was shooting the graffiti on the wall off to the right. We had a good chat and of course I took his photo!

Kurrawa Through My Eyes

More adventures from the barefoot photographer, this morning I went up the road to a different location. The Kurrawa Surf Club. It was another amazing morning. Some nice clouds to make for some more dramatic shots. Today I was shooting predominantly with my Fish Eye lense. I’m loving it lots!! Kinda feels like Christmas already for me.

Good Morning Kurrawa

Feel free to leave a comment below.

I love these stairs and the textures of the wood. Plus the lighting here was very cool with the lights from the sunrise plus the artificial light from the surf club.

A morning walk on the beach! It doesn’t get much better.

More cow shots! For some reason the cows were a bit scared of me this morning. Maybe it was my sunglasses, or maybe my bare feet! LOL

I’ve Been in discussion with Brett Florens Photography (Brett is one of the Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World)!! CONFIRMED Brett to come over here to the Gold Coast, Australia from South Africa to run his 3-Day Intensive Workshop for me & my clients!!! If you’re interested in going let me know ASAP.

This is going to be AWESOME. Brett is a great guy, photographer and teacher.

The workshop will be held in September here on the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia.

Wedding Photography Training Workshop

The “Nikon Behind the Lens Wedding Workshop” is a fully intensive 3 day workshop covering everything from marketing and shooting the wedding, to post production. It is an interactive course with me, Brett Florens, which will include

  • Live shoots using models at a simulated wedding

Plus, Brett will give you close personal attention regarding your portfolio and marketing material.

The first day deals with your kit requirements as well as advice on running a sustainable business, marketing and dealing with the client. In the afternoon we shoot an engagement session with models concluding around six o’clock in the evening.

The second day deals with lighting and preparation for the real wedding, the afternoon is filled with shooting the wedding with the couple that we had shot the previous day. We shoot the bridal preparation and then off to the ceremony. We break for dinner and then get going with some creative night shooting, after a very long day we finish up at around eleven o’clock.

The third day deals with postproduction and post wedding sales. We chat about the relationship with the lab and how to get great print results. We then go through your images and marketing material, in a constructive open session. You may use all the images shot whilst on the workshop for your own marketing and advertising purposes.

Brett Florens is looking forward to sharing and learning with you!

Shoot me an email ( for more information.

Here’s a couple of Brett’s images below.

Broadbeach Morning Fun

Once again another sensational sunrise. This morning wasn’t quite the same though as there were very few clouds. But all the same it was a real blessing to witness it again. This morning I went to Broadbeach. I took the wide angle shot above that came out well. I hope you like it. The blue line/section off to the side was totally natural too.

There was a small swell with a few surfers out and of course plenty of early morning walkers and people exercising.

The sun just poking thru the horizon, couple of surfers out there enjoying the sunrise too!

This young fella taking an early morning walk.

This group were enjoying their early morning stretches and exercise.

I couldn’t resist, on the way home I drive past this kind of farm thing a few kilometres from the beach. This cow was just begging to have his photo taken!

Enjoy and have a wonderful day!

Surfers Sunrise

This morning Jade (my 7 year old daughter) and I got up around 5am and went out for the sunrise again. It was a kind of bleak, rainy, dark kind of morning. We still got a couple of nice shots.

The first one is from near the Gold Coast City Council looking towards Surfers with the sun rising behind. This is actually just before sunrise around 5:42am.

The 2nd shot below is from the beach in Surfers Paradise. I hope you enjoy them.

Broadbeach Sunrise

Last night I was talking with a good friend of mine Steve and I mentioned to him that I wasn’t sure where I was going to shoot the sunrise tomorrow. He suggested Broadbeach / Kurrawa Surf Club area. So that’s where I went! Only 10 minutes from my home and it turned out to be a beautiful sunrise too!
