August Update

Hi there, it’s been a while between posts. What’s up?

We’ve just renewed the lease for another year, so we’re still here in Leichhardt!

Drone images are popular! People have been purchasing prints from my aerial work, taken with a drone. A few people also took advantage of my recent special on my print store too. It’s always a great feeling knowing that my art is hanging on someones wall and bringing them joy.

I’ve also had a lot of Sydney guys book me in to take professional photos for their online dating profiles this winter, I think more people are realising this is a service!

Recently I travelled to Tamworth, Australia’s country music capital. I was there to visit a friend, but got some great footage and photos during my time there. Follow me on Instagram to get a preview, I’ll have a short video edited soon.

The days are starting to get longer, and I am looking forward to summer coming back!

Head On Photo Festival Leichhardt

I just got back from Head On Photo Festival’s exhibition in Leichhardt, where I got to meet two of the exhibiting photographers.

The first was Remy Gerega, who was exhibiting amazing aerial photos of Shark Bay in Western Australia. Secondly was Luca Altamore, who had documented the West Connex Project in Sydney, and its impact on inner western Sydney communities.

You can view the full listing of photography exhibitions happening as part of Head On Photo Festival here.

Leichhardt Blog

I haven’t written a lot on the blog for quite some time. We are now based out of Leichhardt, which is a lot better suited to running a photography business which services a lot of clients in the CBD.

In addition to photography, I have been producing more video work. From a recent commercial, to live band performances and seminars on social media.

Events have long been a core part of my photography business, particularly music events. My work as a newspaper photographer also meant a lot of event photography, so it has been fun covering events here in Sydney.

Being central in Sydney has also allowed me to really push my tinder photo shoots to clients. It’s an idea that has proved popular with guys in Sydney. There was a rush on tinder shoot bookings at the start of summer. The demand died off somewhat towards the end of summer, but I’m now receiving more enquiries for tinder shoots again.

I’ve also recently been getting into drone photography and videography. Sydney has such a picturesque coast line, and has been such a great place to learn to fly a drone. Sydney’s ocean pools are also something unique for me to photograph, as they aren’t something I’m used to as a Perth kid.

For the rest of 2017 I’m keen to push my corporate photography to a wider audience, as well as gain some more music industry clients. I’m also very keen to fill up my video show reel with more of Sydney’s beautiful coast line.

Jordan’s experience working for major newspapers means that your images will be edited and then provided to you with a rapid turn around time. No waiting for weeks for your photos while your guests have forgotten about your event.

Jordan also has a pool of trusted photographers, so should you require the services of more than one event photographer, we can provide a team of photographers large enough to cover your event. No matter what the size.

If you are holding an event such as a charity ball, please get in touch, because I have special packages available to registered charity organisations. I can also offer an online print store for your attendees to purchase prints, with a portion of the proceeds being donated back to your fund raiser.

Video Production

Should you also require video of your event, Jordan has you covered for this. Your event can be recorded from multiple angles, and edited as your needs require, or you can simply be provided with the raw video footage to have edited, or for archival purposes.

You can read more information about our video production services here.

Sculpture by the Sea

Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe Beach starts today. Nicole and I headed down this morning to get an early peek. Great pieces this year including a giant “goon bag” (Aussie slang for a wine cask).

Many of this year’s pieces speak of the conservation and protection of our marine environment and coastlines, issues which are becoming more and more important in recent years.

Blues @ Mojos Fremantle

I headed down to Mojos in North Fremantle last night with the crew from Kulcha.

It was blues night, and boy were there some blues played there.

Mojos is up there with one of my favourite venues in WA, and it didn’t disappoint with a night of amazing blues musicians.

On the bill were Anton Thomas, Mitch Becker with Jean Guy De Miere on Harmonica, followed by Lloyd Spiegel with Arun Satgunasingam on percussion.

Here are my photos from the night.

Concert For The Kimberley, Fremantle

A huge crowd turned out today in Fremantle for Concert For The Kimberley, featuring Missy Higgins and John Butler. South Terrace was filled with thousands of people protesting the development of James Price Point as a gas hub.

The development of James Price Point is a contentious issue, which is opposed by a majority of Broome residents, people around Australia, and internationally.

Australia Day Perth

Australia Day 2013

I know it’s February, but I thought I’d share a few of my Australia Day photos that I took for The Sunday Times. I even managed to get a front page with one of my photos.

Here is a set of photos of Australia Day 2013 in Perth.
