ANZAC – The Light Horse

ANZAC – The Light Horse

  For me, nothing is more entrenched in Australian legend, than the Australian Light Horse.     As mounted infantry, rather than traditional cavalry, Australian Light Horsemen usually fought dismounted, using their horses as transport to the battlefield and a means of swift disengagement in the event of retreat. Each regiment lived and fought as a series of four-man sections.  When they went into action, three men would dismount to fight as infantry while the fourth man led the four horses to cover until they were needed for a...

Ben+Rebecca – Married Under the Tuscan Sun

The combination of travel and photography have always entwined as two of my greatest loves; but to be asked to document the wedding of Ben and Rebecca in Siena, Tuscany,  (yes, Tuscany in Italy!   The home of Da Vinci, pasta, pizza, gelato and espresso) was beyond a dream come true for me.  Ben and Rebecca were married in an intimate ceremony held in the magnificent town hall – Palazzo Pubblico – in the town square, Piazza del Campo, presided over by the Lord Mayor of Siena, and surrounded by family and friends from Australia, the...

A Mother’s Day Tribute

What would you do without your mum? I mean, really . . . . . what would you do? Mums – they’re always there when you need them. Every.Single.Time. Just when you think that you’re all independent and grown up and you don’t need them anymore – you will. And BAM! They’re there. And they just seem to know what to do. I think it’s in the manual. Remember the time when you were a kid and something bad happened? What was the first thing you said? I’ll bet it was: ‘GET MUM’! Yep. ‘Get Mum’ – cause no matter what the situation, mums always...

Soraya+Eli

While we’re on the subject of weddings – here’s another gorgeous Robe wedding – Soraya and Eli. Now, since I’ve just delivered their exquisite, hand-crafted, leather-bound wedding album to them, I don’t have to keep it under wraps any longer – so I can show it to you!  (Just keep it under your hat though, otherwise I’m pretty sure that everyone will be wanting one). Soraya and Eli exchanged their vows on Hooper’s Beach in an intimate sunset ceremony with family and close friends gathering...

Kate+Levi’s Wildly Romantic Robe Wedding

Once upon a time on one of her regular getaways to the stunning seaside village of Robe, South Australia, Kate met local Robe boy, Levi – and it was right here that their fairytale romance first began. Last November, their love affair culminated in a wildly romantic wedding ceremony at Hoopers Beach, Robe overlooking the gorgeous turquoise waters of Guichen Bay, surrounded by their family and friends. One of Kate and Levi’s special requests, was that they have some of their wedding photos taken at their favourite location at West...

How important are family photos to you?

How important are family photos to you?

Well, I’m pretty sure that I can answer my own question there.  To me, they’re unbelievably important.  And this is my why: We lost my cousin a little while ago.  Suddenly and tragically.  We had no warning, no explanation. The gaping hole he has left can never be filled.  His family will never be whole again.  They can only hope that one day the pain won’t be as bad as it is now.  They will always miss their husband, father, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle.  And for our family, we will miss our nephew and cousin. That’s what...

Sharna and Sascha – A Furner wedding.

Nothing could have made the day any more perfect for Sharna Scudds and Sascha Bucher, as they exchanged vows in the picture-perfect surrounds in the garden of the Scudds family property, ‘Barkala’ near Furner in South Australia’s south east. The beautiful winter sunshine bathed the garden in an incredibly magical, golden light, and not a breath of wind stirred the bare branches of the trees growing at the edge of the garden, where close family and friends gathered to witness the ceremony. The guests partied the night away...

How To Pose Cattle – The Mooovie

I know you’ve secretly been dying to ask, so for everyone that has has ever wondered about posing animals for a photographic shoot, here’s the big tip: You can’t make cattle do anything.   Come on, you didn’t actually think I could control a cow!  They’ll do whatever they want to! But in the case of the gorgeous formation of my bovine friends you can see in my Legacy of the Land series, I’ll admit, I may have helped them along just a little. 1. Place family in position and tell them to stand by. 2. Load the trusty...

Legacy of the Land

F or some of you who have been following me over the past few months, you would have realised that I’ve had something in the pipeline. A little idea. A little idea that’s morphed into a huge project with unlimited possibilities.

2012 Australian Year of the Farmer | ABC Landline | The Long and Winding Road

Mid-winter in the south east of SA can be a pretty bleak place at times.  Cold and wet.  Really cold and really wet.  As in 5-and-a-half-inches-of-rain-in-a-month wet.  And did I mention the wind?  The wind is something else.  We get those lazy winds around here that blow straight in across the Southern Ocean from Antarctica.  Not lazy as in gentle breeze, but lazy in that it doesn’t bother going around you, it blows straight through you.  (No wonder some bright spark had an idea to put a wind farm up at nearby Tantanoola). It was on one of...
