It’s been a while between posts and am feeling a little catholic guilt for neglecting our blog. Our biggest news is the purchase of our new Phase P45+, 39 Megapixel Digital Camera back and Cambo Camera. I have sadly bid farewell to my faithful old Linhoff and embraced the new high end digital technology. This is not our first foray into the high end digital arena, we previously purchased the Leaf Aptus 33 megapixel back which we have been very happy with. Anyone whose privy to what is going on with Leaf at the moment will understand our reservation about committing to upgrades with this brand and hence the switch to Phase. I feel a bit like the guy who bought a Ford Edsel! We have been holding off on our investment in a large format camera suitable for the high end digital back until the release of the 23mm Rodenstock lens. This is an exquisite lens and makes the high end backs now much more appealing for architectural work. These items are enormously expensive and are a testament to our commitment and investment in the production of the best quality work we can deliver for our clients. This by no means leaves our Canon 1DS Mark III redundant. It really is about selecting the right equipment for the job. I look forward to sharing some of the pictures that we produce from our new technology. We’ve been busy shooting some new interesting projects, here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been up to. Another beautiful fit out by Ryan Russell Architects:
We had fun with the Grenade team shooting their fabulously renovated studio in Prahan:
We have been working with the City of Melbourne to document the new Flagstaff Gardens Bowls Club – a true haven from the hustle and bustle of the city, nestled cosily amidst the gardens, you almost forget you are in an urban metropolis:
On the studio front, we bid farewell to Markus who has been a fabulous contribution to our studio for the past 5 years. He has become a treasured friend and will be missed. We wish him well in his new endeavours. We welcome Kelly on board and we look forward to covering many great projects over the next 6 months.
