A sneak preview of a series of photographs taken for Injidup Spa Retreat. This was taken outdoors between wild rain storms coming off the Indian Ocean at Injidup Beach.
New shots for Outshine Beauty + Medi Spa based in James St, Brisbane. Following her acquisition of Outshine, owner, Meaghan South was keen to refresh the brand images and show more of the story of the services available and the enjoyment they all have in delivering the Spa & Beauty treatments.
During a visit with Kurt in Yallingup, Western Australia we were having a beer in the afternoon discussing macro lenses in his outdoor dining area and over his should noticed this frog in the buses behind him. There was a fair bit of elbowing to get in close enough to get the shot - duelling 100mm macros - the frog didnt seem to care.
Cosmetic Beauty & Laser based in Sydney won Spa Australasia's competition for a one day spa shoot with me. Thanks to Anne-Marie Cook (editor) for assisting for the day and even modelling for a couple of shots.
Scoop magazine hunted down the best spa retreats in WA and Injidup made the Top 10 list. Images by LANEWAY Photography.
Shot with a combination of natural light, small flash and a great location in the hills of Byron Bay. I was trying for a gritty image with grounding to the texture of a building that shows history and life. The props were all from within the space.
Incorporating flavours of Dub, Electronica, Hip-hop, Jazz & many forms of world music, OKA’s sound can sometimes be hard to describe. A better way to define OKA is by the three interesting characters that make up the outfit, bringing together a variety of influences, backgrounds & talents. Stu Boga Fergie (Didgeristu), the big man behind the electronic beats & keys brings raw didgeridoo & vocals inspired by his aboriginal heritage. Chris Lane (foreground) plays captivating melody on slide guitar, harmonica & woodwinds including bamboo, flute & sax. Making up the trio is Samoan-Australian Charlie Zappa (the FRO) – a rhythm specialist with beats of Polynesian fire & deep pocket. Together they blend many pieces that is the OKA puzzle - A sound & force that touches the heart & feeds the soul.
Equipment: Canon 5dmkIII 1/160s @ f/5 ISO1250, 16-25mm f/2.8L II USM @ 16mm, odin flash triggers, 2 x 580exII flashs.
My first Mullum music festival - it was a blast. Here is a selection of shots from the festival, some of the performers and my favourite - the "Magic Bus".
I just completed a shoot for Smiths Beach Resort in the fabulous South West of Western Australia. This is in the Margaret River wine region which in my past life as a winemaker have spend many great seasons. The coastline and beaches are some of the best in the world and we wanted to showcase the beauty and colour of the area for one of the best holiday destinations in the area. We gave the Canon 5DmkIII a good run and used a Lastolite sunfire 2x1m reflector which provided a lovely skin glow.
