Couple that with work with some great crew it made for a very rewarding two day shoot. I worked closely with director Peter Muffet to create a few ‘morning tea party’ scenes which made up all of the on air time. The lighting was a great challenge shooting in a lived-in house with the sun shining in from one side of the house. We used a combination of Lupolux and kinoflo 4ft banks to lift...Read More

Sculpture by the Sea 2014 (video)
Produced in collaboration with RawLight films, Sculpture by the Sea came to Sydney and we thought it was a perfect opportunity to get out to the coast and sunrise and make a video. We knew the sculptures would look amazing in the morning light but we thought it would be a great to include a narrative within the short video.

We followed the journey of Roman Mongin a local photographer who was on location to capture a sunrise photo session, as he prepared to take a series of photographs...Read More
Canon 24-105mm with Speedbooster (Video)
Focal Length comparison between the Speedbooster and ‘Normal’ EF-E mount adaptor on Canon 24-105mm lens.

One of the disadvantages however to using larger sensor camera’s is the availability (and price) of a good multi-purpose zoom lens. In my lens bag I have had the...Read More
