We were commissioned by local cabinet makers Blueprint Interiors to photograph some of their recent kitchen renovations and here are a few samples from the shoots.
About a year ago a friend of mine set himself up with a photographic studio in the Mindarie area. He has now found himself with a business opportunity in Asia and is looking to rent out his studio and equipment. The studio is located near the Ocean Keys shopping centre and is an ideal setup for someone looking at getting into studio photography in Perth’s Northern suburbs.
John hasn’t given me a complete breakdown of his equipment yet (I’ll see if I can get an update from him) but here is his description of his studio setup:
“I have some very good almost new lighting plus accessories and excellent processing hardware and software with the Mac. It occurred to me that you might know someone who is interested in developing a photography business and would like a ready made studio and equipment. I am flexible in my thinking but would be prepared to consider renting the unit and the equipment. There is excellent frontage for a big sign and we get loads of passing traffic from the local businesses. I believe there could be a great opportunity in this area for a business with a studio.”
The Studio has 2 floors, a large ground floor setup as a studio and a upstairs office area. Here is a photo I took of the ground floor a while ago –
If anyone would like more information please let me know and I can put you in touch with John.
Update: John has sent me through a list of his equipment –
2 Bowen Studio Lights with full accessories (barn doors; gels; snoot, honey comb etc)
4 Wi-Fi Remotes
Wall mounted back drops
Large background black cloth.
28 inch monitors linked to Mac Pro with Photoshop
Colormunki Screen/Printer Calibrator
Large Format HP Design Jet Printer
Possibility of including Canon EOS 1Ds MK IV
Yesterday was the Mindarie Marina Festival down on the boardwalk, we were down there covering the event as usual and we also had our market stall setup in our normal spot next to the Indian Ocean Brewery.
It was a glorious Australian spring day with blue skies and temps in the high 20’s. The boardwalk was alive with bands at the Boat and the Indi, roaming performers, market stalls and more visitors than I have ever seen there. All-in-all it was another great event run by the crew at the Marina and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
Here are a few of the photos from the event:
If you’ve been down at Mindarie Marina and “the Boat” recently you will have noticed that there are a few changes taking place. The old tennis court is undergoing a transformation into a beach sports arena complete with stadium seating and a mini bar. This new arena will play host to a number of beach games over the summer months including beach volleyball & beach soccer.
Kicking of the summer sports season on Nov 7th is the new 2010 Beach Volley Ball Pro Tournament which will run every Sunday from 12-6pm throughout November, so join us down there for some fun and a beer while the the younger guys and gals sweat it out on the sand :grin:.
This is a new Fine Art Print release for our Landscape Photography gallery from a photo shoot back in February 2010. It was one of those spectacular Perth summer evenings in the perfect location. Hillarys is a such a buzz of activity in the Summer and it has everything you could want from a seaside destination – beach, cafes & restaurants, bars, shops, and that exotic marina feeling.
On this particular evening I was just wandering around the harbour as the Saturday Markets came to a close. There were just enough clouds in the sky to make it interesting and the sun was just starting to hit the horizon and cast that incredible golden light on the beach and fairground. The clouds had a just a hint of colour from the sunset and the scene was just so peaceful.
Trouble is I really couldn’t decide on the best crop to use. The final image is a from a 3 image stitch so I had enough pixels to play around a bit but I wanted to get enough clouds in the image to see the incredible cloud structure, keep the foreground tree on the right and rocks down the bottom whist maintaining a 3:1 ratio.
As it was not possible to keep all these elements in the one image I decided to release 2 different crops as you can see here.
I’m still not sure which one I prefer …
