CASE STUDY: Aerial Photography and Video Production


Sometimes, you just need an aerial perspective. And sure, you can put a drone in the air. Sometimes. And you may even get a great result. But CASA restrictions mean you can’t always launch a drone. And if you want to shoot other aircraft you definitely can’t use a drone.

You need someone with experience and specialist equipment. In short, you need an aerial cinematographer and aerial photographer.


Sometimes, you just need an aerial perspective. And sure, you can put […]

CASE STUDY: Shooting Stoddart Group’s Entire Business Line

OR: No, I’m not afraid of heights!


The Stoddart Group manufacture, supply and install steel house frames, roofing, cladding, fascia, guttering, garage doors and downpipes. They also supply and install solar energy solutions. They approached me with an old website that had almost no images of their people, manufacturing facilities, or expanded product line.

Being one of the last remaining large-scale manufacturers in Australia is a point of pride for them. And they wanted to photograph all of their products being manufactured, installed and in situ as completed […]

CASE STUDY: Creative Accountant Corporate Portraits, Brisbane

OR: Does this bowl cut suit me?


It can be hard for lawyers and accountants to get interesting staff portraits. For large firms, staff portrait day can resemble a sausage factory: stand here, smile, snap, NEXT! All your terrible school portrait nightmares burst forth into adulthood. Although, hopefully without the bowl cut.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. The results of two of my accounting clients can attest to that. One a large multinational employing hundreds of people in Brisbane alone, the other a small, three partner firm […]

CASE STUDY: Industrial Aviation Image Library Update – Brisbane Airport


The airport is a key member of the community here in Brisbane. That means they have to regularly seek feedback on, and publish information about, their operations. The amount of material Brisbane Airport publish each year is staggering.

But it’s not economical to hire a photographer every single time they need an image. So, they rely on an image library, built up over years. Like a stock image library, but made up of images shot specifically for them, detailing their people, infrastructure and operations. […]

CASE STUDY: Industrial Photos and Videos for JPR, Large Scale Electrical Contractor

OR: Is that guy standing sideways on the top of a telegraph pole?


Reconductoring. I did not know that was a word until I worked for JPR Industries, a large-scale commercial electrical contracting company located in Brisbane. Among other things, they strip out old powerlines, poles and transformers and install new ones. And they complete this in enormous sections, all in one day.

JPR had two large jobs that would take up a good percentage of their workforce in one go. One in the […]

CASE STUDY: Toowoomba Civil Construction Company, Newlands

OR: Build it and they will come


Newlands is an established Toowoomba civil construction firm who’ve been growing steadily over the past 15 years. They’ve really kicked it up a notch by winning major contracts with the Second Range Crossing. But they’re also invested in Toowoomba to make sure it’s a thriving place to live by creating some mixed community and commercial spaces in parts of town that were disused or neglected. […]

CASE STUDY: Airbus Group at Avalon Airshow

OR: Aviation Lamington: Defined


Airbus don’t just build passenger planes. In Australia, they also build, service and maintain military helicopters and planes for the Australian Army. They also participate in the week-long Australian International Airshow held every two years at Avalon Airport. I was embedded in their team for the duration of the show, producing a series of videos and images. The client wanted to demonstrate the products they had at the show, and cover the important PR activities they had planned across the week. […]

CASE STUDY: Week-long photographic assignment for Tourism & Events QLD

Or, Thank God I Packed Stretch Pants


A big part of Tourism and Events Queensland’s remit is to highlight hidden gems in QLD. While Noosa (particularly the Food and Wine Festival) is hardly a secret, Mary Valley in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is. TEQ wanted to highlight the Noosa Foodie Trail, but also the Mary Valley and its stunning vistas, gourmet local produce, and its burgeoning triathlon trail. […]

CASE STUDY: Week-long photographic assignment for a mining client

OR: When you can never have too many SWMS
