February 25, 2010
It has been an absolute manic start to 2010 and a ridiculously long time since I attended to our blog. So much has happened since our last post in November, so here’s hopefully a not too lengthy summary.
I was fortunate to be featured in Inside Magazines Issue 58 photographers profile. Many thanks to the lovely Jan Henderson for a glowing review.
A huge congrats to Ryan Russell for taking out the IDEA Awards – Best Retail Interior for Aesop Doncaster
Another huge congrats to Hassell for taking out the IDEA Awards – Sustainable Project for Warry Street Studio in Brisbane. It was great to shoot something fabulous on home turf. Yes I have officially now acknowledged my Queensland roots.
I was excited to receive 2 nominations in the International Black & White Spider Awards. Thousands of images were received from 68 countries worldwide. There is some stunning work featured and you can view the 5th Annual Winners Gallery at www.thespiderawards.com/gallery5
We had the great pleasure of doing a wonderful project with the fantastic team at Grenade Design – www.grenade.com.au – Here’s a few of the pic’s
We have been absolutely crazily nuts shooting for the RAIA Awards entries. A huge thanks must go to my assistant Kelly who has endured the nightmare of dusk after dawn after dusk … on and on for the past month. I have wined before about summer and dusk but this was a particularly unrelenting year …. and it’s just begun. What we do celebrate today, apart from the fact that it is the awards entry deadline, is that dusk is getting earlier and earlier each week. YEH!
I promised myself that I would dedicate a blog to celebrate client relationships … and I will at some point cover this in more detail, but here I must make mention of some of the really rewarding client experiences from 2009 & the beginning of 2010:
Thanks to Lyons Architects who have entrusted, engaged, explained and let me grow as a photographer through their encouragement and support. My work with you has been absolutely inspiring and enriching. It is refreshing to have these kind of committed relationships that evolve and produce, through collaboration, a fabulous visual record.
Thanks to Ryan Russell who keeps giving me amazing work to photograph. Your work is AMAZING!
Thanks to Ben Buxton at Grenade for giving me the opportunity to shoot a wonderful and creative visual story. It was a fabulous opportunity and a great experience…and it’s always fun working with your boys.
Thanks to Michael Yates for continuing to support me and let me be part of your exciting developments. I feel like family!
Thanks to Cox Architects for all the Awards projects. A special thanks to Rebecca Gaylor for producing the best photography briefs in the business and for just being so lovely to deal with.
Thanks to Rhiannon Slatter (another fabulous Architectural Photographer) who has become a wonderful friend and has been a great support in sharing thoughts, ideas and inspiration. In what is generally a very disperate and coveted industry, it is great to have a collegue with whom to share knowledge.
Last, but my no means least, we’ve finally launched our stock image website (www.snapestock.com.au) featuring work from Australia’s leading and emerging photographers. We are excited by the interest and support of the photographers who have come on board and look forward to growing and evolving this site for the Australian creative market. Happy 2010 here’s hoping good things for all!
