As an event photographer in Canberra, the biggest privilege is that we often get opportunities to photograph historical occasions, such as this one – Coles Centenary Celebration! I really didn’t realise that Coles has been providing services to us for a century. I felt the honour to be part of the celebration, to witness those [...]
I won’t say Michelle Abelardo is just a model, she’s a stylist and a makeup artist. In one word, she is very versatile and easy to work with. If you are looking for opportunities to build up your career in modeling, some good portfolio photos is a good point to start with. Canberra is such [...]
Photographing corporate headshots can be quite challenging sometimes – the photos need to speak for the business but also the personality of the individuals. Very often, the photos are required to satisfy different purposes: for example, for a website banner or simply a profile headshot. So, I’ll have to bear those special requirements in mind [...]
The journey of my photography business started from event photography, and Schmooze was the first platform for me to extend my wings. So a special thank to you for giving me this valuable opportunity. Most importantly, it was where I made new friends and met like-minded entrepreneurs. I really miss you guys! Here is just [...]
As I always said, corporate headshots or photos don’t always have to be rigid or old-fashioned. They don’t have to be a head to shoulder image with white or black background. Instead, corporate photos should more represent your branding and corporate culture. Hence, the pre-communication and understanding before a corporate photography session is critical. Karen [...]
I previously blogged my passion for food. I was very privileged to photograph the signature products of Pasticceria Francesco, the finest Italian sweets and wedding cakes in Canberra. They make everything with prestige, authentic Italian recipes, using only quality and fresh ingredients. Italian continental cake, Ferrero Rocher mud cake and siciliani are just a few [...]
I’m a foodie! I love everything about food, from a nice designed menu, to elegant restaurant interior, to taste all kinds of cuisine, to make and bake my own……and most important, I like to record the process of food making, photographing the finished products……and many more!
Can you believe this girl is only 14 years old and this was her first time modeling? These fashion portraits of Theresa’s, are by far, my most favorite shots. We planned all the props, styling and makeup beforehand which made the results outstanding! With some preparation, everyone can have these professional looking portraits too! Lisa [...]
Here and then, I love to take photos of myself or with my partner together. I found myself more relaxed in front of camera if I just do-it-myself, but it could be time-consuming and complicated. This time, as you can seen, it’s special because it’s my maternity shots. It was done in my home studio when [...]
Linlin and Dondon are siblings. Linlin was 8 months old and Dondon was near 3. Their mum said when Dondon was Linlin’s age, they actually looked very similar. I’m curious how Linlin will look like at the age of 3. They were the very first visitors to my home studio, which was set specially for [...]
Vick & Steve had a colourful wedding in their gorgeous farm. They were so worried about the yellow-looking landscape after a long hot summer. But two weeks before their wedding, there was lots of rain and the farm came back to life, just in time! Although the weather was a bit dramatic on the day but [...]
It was the third year I had been with InnovationACT: first year I was a committee member, second year a photograher and third year a marketing consultant and a photographer. The more I was involved I more I love this event. I was often asked what this event is about – great question! It’s business idea [...]
What I love the most about weddings are the beautiful accessories and decorations. The wedding details represent the personalities of the couples. Some are gorgeous, some are bold, some are classic, some are creative……one rule never changes – everything for the bride must be perfect!
When I was traveling in Venice last year, I was so fascinated by the windows there. These windows are telling the story of this ancient city. Some of them look like over 100 years some are new. I’m sharing part of them today.
