Event Photography: Black Tie dinner at The Tannery

Earlier this year I was asked to photograph a Black Tie dinner event, when Vision Systems were celebrating their 10th Anniversary at The Tannery.

What an amazing space this was to photograph in – the atrium ceiling gives beautiful even light, and the styling of the space makes for beautiful layering of focus.

Portrait Photography: Red Tussock

Sarah & Barbara from Red Tussock approached me last year to take some corporate portraits, and some health-coaching themed stock imagery that they could use in advertising and on their website.

The brief was to take photographs of the real people behind Red Tussock doing some of the real activities that they encourage their health coaching clients to participate in, as well as some corporate style head shots of Sarah & Barbara. For the corporate portraits, and consultation imagery, we shot at Christchurch’s Ministry of Awesome, and for the cycling and fitness themed images we went to Hagley Park.

Sarah and Barbara are super energetic, positive people, and they definitely practice what they preach! If you’re in need of some health & wellness coaching I would definitely recommend getting in touch with Red Tussock.

 

Commercial Photography: Only By Invite

Anna from Only By Invite Ltd asked me to photograph some of her beautiful handmade wedding invitation, RSVP card, place card and table card designs which will feature in some new advertising material and a new website that she’s working on.

She puts so many lovely little details into her work, so to highlight those I’ve used a short depth of field. To emphasise the handmade, artisan side of her work I’ve used natural calico for a backdrop and given the images a bit of an artistic feel with a subtle use of creative processing.

Here’s a selection of shots… you’ll have to wait until her new website is up and running to see the full collection!
