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. ONLY around 10 spots available!

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.

Burleigh Morning Swim

These young fellas went our for an early morning swim and body surf, armed with their flippers and body surf boards (strapped to their hands with mini fins underneath). The water was 24 degrees this morning with the outside temp around 19 at 5:50am or so! The water was beautiful, glassy with a small swell. A whole group of these guys went out for their early morning swim and body surf to come back in afterwards to a delightful breakfast cooked by their lovely wives!

In the background is Surfers Paradise, Queensland

This one speaks for itself! Beauty, peace and serenity. Early morning Burleigh Beach.

There wasn’t a real big swell this morning but enough for quite a few people to get out for an early morning swim and body surf.

The lone ranger bottle in the brown paper bag!! haha I couldn’t help take this one. This bottle of grog sitting there on the ledge watching the most amazing sunrise all by itself! I had to have a chuckle to myself.

This one is titled “The Lava Sunrise”, as soon as my daughter Jade saw this pic she said “WOW! That looks like lava.

A Multiplicity of Mandy

My beautiful wife Mandy. A multiplicity of Mandy’s! 🙂 She’s everywhere, she’s everywhere! Reminds me of a segment they used to have on the radio in Adelaide, South Australia called Chicken Man, their catch saying was “He’s everywhere, he’s everywhere!”

Enjoy this photo and leave a comment below…

Floating in the woods

Here’s my 2nd decent go at creating a ‘levitation’ shot. I hope you enjoy it. 😉 I think this one turned out pretty good.

My wife and I ventured out into the woods the other day for this shoot. Had a blast. It’s definitely fun doing things like this and get’s the creativity going. As I mentioned before I’m not the ‘creator’ of this effect, it’s been around for years in different forms but it’s kinda new for me. I’m always trying to learn and master new techniques.

Anyway, I’m thinking of creating some video tutorials at on this technique for my gold members. If this is something you think you’re interested in let me know. If not that’s cool. I’d still love to hear any feedback and thoughts you may have! Thanks again for visiting and have an awesome day.

I gotta head out and play some ball with my daughter Emma! She’s leaning over me asking me every 30 seconds if I’m ready yet!! LOL Love it!! 🙂

Sunrise, the best time…

There is no doubt about it the morning is the best part of the day. I love the peace at this special time of the day, especially at the beach. There’s a great feeling in the air.

This time of year the water is quite warm too. The photo above is of my eldest daughter Emma (10 years old). She’s a treasure. She got up this morning around 5am to go to the beach. A few days ago I went with Jade (7 years old), today with Emma. We had a great time and we met a lovely fisherman named Ian click here to read more about him.

If you can leave a comment below I’d really appreciate that. Let me know what photo you liked best and why! All the more feedback the better. I hope you like my work and if you want to see more of it let me know…

Another fisherman

I seem to have this thing about fishermen. This morning I took my eldest daughter Emma down the beach for sunrise. I kind of have to take it in turns now as they love their daddy daughter time early morning at the beach.

I met this guy named Ian who is a regular to the area. He was a seasoned pro at jumping out of the way of the big waves crashing over the rocks. He’s retired now and enjoys fishing in the mornings…

This was alot of fun, one of my first attempts at this style of amazing imagery that has captured my mind of late. I hope you like it. Please leave any feedback and comments below.

I’ve got some cool ideas and projects involving levitation and other exciting stuff – I wouldn’t consider myself a ‘Levitation Master’ or anything like that. I’m still a grasshopper trying to master the art and express myself through this creative medium.  This whole concept is not new, it’s been around for years people like Brooke Shaden and Miss Aniela who both have some amazing work. I love it though and I’m loving exploring this side of the art… I’ll post my results when complete here on my site.

Thanks again for all your feedback and support, We’ll be in touch and if you have any questions don’t forget to Contact me 🙂

The Boys


This shot is dramatic, emotional and a little dark. The original shot was quite light but I’ve edited this image to portray strong emotions and feeling. It leaves you wondering if something is wrong or what the problem was. Let me know what you think…
