All shot with my little automatic Olympus 35mm camera that I picked up for 10 pounds at a market in London. I love carrying this little camera around, instead of my big heavy DSLR. Here is a very random selection of photos from the amazing year that last year was.
My dog Torney.
In Coffin Bay National Park. The sand dunes are amazing.
My hometown jetty.
My hometown, Tumby Bay.
My childhood bathtub, just as I left it. The bathroom is getting renovated soon, so I wanted to remember it!
A night out with the girls in Victor Harbour
I climbed the Mount Lofty Summit with my little brother, and I very nearly died.
On the trampoline the night of my 23rd birthday
A day trip to Jamestown
Australia day - I actually arrived back from Europe that morning!
One of my friends Robin got married! This was her hens night.
Seth and Tenielle of Feather and Stone were kind enough to lend us a bunch of film cameras, give us a huge bag of film AND send the film off to be processed for us! I used to shoot film a lot, but have backed away since getting my 5D Mark 2, so this was truly a blessing being forced to go back. I want to start using film more, the results are breathtaking!
If you haven’t already seen them, view the digital shots from the workshop here (or just keep scrolling down).
Thanks to Richard Photo Lab in California for the speedy and perfect processing! I used Fuji Pro 400h and Portra 160 film on a Mamiya 645, Canon 1V, Canon AE1 and Contax G2.
I have been huge fan of Feather and Stone for a long time, and when they announced that they would be hosting a workshop, I knew I couldn’t miss the chance to learn from them. And it was beyond my imagination - the venue Deux Belettes near Byron Bay was like a French wonderland and we even had a surprise guest… Louise Bannister from Frankie Magazine!
Endless thanks Seth and Tenielle. It was so, so lovely to meet you. I have gained an invaluable amount of knowledge that will resonate with me for a long time to come.
See the film photos from the workshop here.
Thanks to Leela from Your Gourmet for the catering, Ava-Belle for all hair and make-up, Stephanie and Billy from Division Models, Intique & Co for florals, styling and providing the gowns on day 1 which were designed by Claire Pettibone, real couples Michelle & Josh and Emma & Dylan, Babushka Ballerina for the gowns and hairpiece on day 2 and the veil on day 3, menswear by Pistols at Dawn, day 3 florals by Green and Bloom, styling by Lovebird Weddings, bohemian gown by Kelsey Genna, beaded gown by Karen Willis Holmes and menswear by Wil Valor. PHEW!
This was one of those weddings where every single element and moment was breathtakingly beautiful and unique. I feel so privileged to have been able to capture these moments for one of the sweetest and most deserving couples I have ever met.
Thanks Joe and Peta for trusting me with your special day.
Merry Christmas everyone! May your Santa have all the limbs necessary to bring you excessive amounts of meat!
