This was a unusual photoshoot for me, I did feel the pressure with this shoot. I always enjoy doing headshots but this time it was for a local politician. Even though they are no different form anyone else ,but when you know your going to see your photos everywhere. They will be corflute signs in the paper and TV news reports for the next month it did give me butterflies in my stomach. This shoot was a hugely interesting to me because it was the first time I was able to talk to a local politician one to one. It was great to get know her as Politian but also as person. I knew little about Susan Krause, apart from that she is a supporter of same-sex marriage. For a political candidate Susan, does not have a large public profile. So professional headshots are vital to raise her public profile.


Born in Brisbane, Susan Krause first came up the hill to mighty Toowoomba at age 10 and has spent time working as a teacher's aide in a local school.She is a working mum and first-time candida…

This shoot incorporates both as these peoples personality and I love incorporating couples personality into their photo shoots. It shows who they are as individuals and how they like to interact with their world. This engagement shoot was no exception. We used the ever popular Toowoomba's Queens Park . Late in the afternoon for that soft golden light. Leslie is top bloke and he is a fan of Captain America . There some cool photos with Leslie showing off some his memorabilia. I did composite where I included some of the Avengers I did this for free because he is such a fun. I think he is a bigger fan than me so it was a labour of love.

But it wasn't all Leslie and his love of the Avengers. They are both NRL fans. Leslie is a North Queensland Cowboys and Mel is a Brisbane Broncos fan.

Luke & Taylah

How much in love are these guys. This is what made their photography session so much fun. We did this shoot very late in the afternoon and into the early evening. Not only did we have great light but Queens Park Toowoomba has lots of lights at night. I feel it gives the place a Paris feel. The local Cobb & Co Museum has beautiful lights at night as well. This gave us endless choices of locations we could even use the same location twice but night it has totally different feel.
It was a shoot with lots of creativity and collaboration and everyone had fun and Luke was happy because he didn't have to smile. Which made him smile and have fun.

Chris and Lilly

The University of Southern Queensland or U.S.Q. was the location for this engagement shoot. Lilly and Chris are the happy couple.

Decided on U.S.Q.. because the Japanese Gardens is located beside U.S.Q.. Lilly has coloured ranking belts in 3 different martial disciplines and with martial arts being such a big part of her life the Japanese Gardens just seemed the logical choice.


We also able to use some of cool architecture at U.S.Q.to make other fun photos too.
Of course there is a YouTube slideshow.

Brett and Rebecca

Over spring I have been doing so many engagement shoots. They are really becoming very popular. Here is one did in September in Queens Park Toowoomba. The lovely couple are Brett and Rebecca. I met this couple at the Highfeilds wedding Expo" which is hosted by Event Illusions a local wedding hire company which based here in Toowoomba.

Queens Park is always poplar with young couples its located in the middle of Toowoomba, so its always easy to find a car park. We did this session a week before Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers which is major tourist event here in Toowoomba. The Toowoomba Regional Council do a awesome job with all parks and gardens.

The late afternoon light always makes for beautiful photos. It was great to see it was a couple shoot, even though they had a beautiful daughter, wo did manage to sneak in and steal the attention. It was great that they focused on them as couple. Of course it was relaxed and we had lots of fun. Its exactly one today until they get married…

50th Anniversary

Hey, Here is a special family photography for a 50th anniversary I did at Hodgson Vale 10 mins out of Toowoomba. All the generations came together to celebrate this very special occasion.

It was great to cover this event I was only there for an hour as we didn't want to interrupt the follow the day. After lunch we started and managed to get all the kids Mums Dads Uncles and Aunts. Not a bad effort for such a short time.
