I have been putting a lot of time into getting the studio up and running, so my own work has taken a step back… but I am starting to shoot personal work again! Here are a couple from my last two shoots with the lovely Dannielle – model, friend and all round fun person! Of course all of these have been captured using Broncolor equipment and edited in Capture One Pro, Photoshop running NIK plugins!
We were at the Gold Coast and it was hot, but that didn’t matter! The day belonged to Martin and Kate and the lovely family and friends who shared their day! Darren and I were privileged to be a part of their day too!
Here are a few images from their wedding day!
Well it is a model, but not like I would normally shoot! This is a special Warhammer model purchased from the UK! My son assembles and paints these things, and does a pretty good job at it! My task was to photograph it and I decided to photograph it with a dark feel. The detail and amount of work that has gone int this is amazing!
Warehouse Studios has been built as a professional hire studio facility from the start! Studio 2 is able to take a car and while I did not build it for motor vehicle photography, I need to find out the limitations of the studio when shooting a vehicle! So today was spent trying a basic car shoot – now NOTE – I am NOT a motor vehicle photographer!
With that in mind I set out to sneak the new GTI into the cyclorama using lengths of cardboard, as I don’t own the go-jacks needed for this type of shoot! With the GTI in I started about trying some light positions. What I was really looking for was the reflection of the building ceiling in the surfaces of the car. Yes it does reflect as I thought, so now I need a clever solution to the problem.

Finally I have the studio to a point where it can be hired out. Yesterday was spent test shooting to showcase some of the options available at Warehouse Studios! Some images from the test shoot showing the large cyclorama in Studio 2 and the terracotta and green moveable wall. I also stole some pallets from the business next door!
Just a quick update for now, progress and I can now see the finish…. just!
These three pics show you what it looks like now!
