Last year I was asked to come into Xero to help them out with a light painting image they were trying to create for some internal photos of specific words. The guys were using light painting brushes made from fibre optics and I was just asked in to help with the technical problem they needed solving. I liked the effect of the paint brushes and yesterday received my own and quickly tested them out so here are the first test pics shot last night on the dining table at home!!
These were shot last week for technology law firm Simmonds Stewart who I regularly shoot for. These were mainly shot on the amazing Sigma 85mm art lens that is crazy sharp wide open, my new favourite lens! No lighting used here, just what was available!
These images were shot recently for an upcoming book on Indian cuisine by Keryn Kalyan called ‘Pass It On.’ I look forward to seeing it in print.
As a few people have been pointing out to me it’s about time I started to update the blog with some new work and personal shots. Starting off here are some shots I did a while back for Wakefields Lawyers and I will quickly update with some more recent work!
This recent shoot for technology law firm Simmonds Stewart required as part of the brief quite a few portraits in a short time frame. One of the days was shooting in their Auckland offices and I flew up there without any lighting and so had to rely on window light. The following shots would have been a lot harder if I was not shooting on a mirrorless camera as getting critical focus hand held at F1.4 would of been too difficult in those conditions on a traditional DSLR.
These are some of the images I shot last week for the Artisan Restaurant.....
This was a really simple set up to get some nice clean food images for the Bolton Hotel recently
