A selection of my favourite images captured and the story behind them.

12 Threads and Annika

It was very difficult to choose my favourite photo from my studio fashion photoshoot with the talented Annika feauturing the urban apparel from 12 Threads!

There were so many good shots and Annika has a natural ability to pose and command the click of the shutter!

Some of our photos were especially for the social media campaign for the clever fashion designers at 12Threads. What a delight to see my photos on their feed!

Fashion photography Brisbane photoshoot with Katrin


I had a fashion photoshoot with Katrin on the Spit at Southport on the Gold Coast. Katrin wanted to expand her fashion portfolio for her modeling agency so we discovered some cool spots under the boardwalk – and this one was beside the breakwater rocks!

The thing I enjoyed about this shoot was Katrin’s easy and experienced ability to pose. Just look at this photo! We were sitting on hard rocks nestled against rocks to get out of the sun and she still managed to strike a strong pose!

Makeup artist Rachel Francis donned her own makeup and modelled for me in our Northgate studio recently.

We worked with Rachel previously on Bonnie’s Sinner vs Saint photoshoot so this wasn’t Rachel’s first time in our studio – but it was her first time in front of our camera.

What a special young lady she is.

Not only is her makeup artistry something to behind, but she is also kind and intelligent and has a beautiful soul.

We’ve got a few more photos of Rachel on her portfolio – so go and check it out and then head over to Rachel’s Instagram account and ask her about makeup for your special effects photoshoot or maybe your special day!

Editorial vibe street photoshoot with the perfect model Asheigh


How stunning is this editorial vibe from model Ashleigh Marie Rogers!?!?

Just picture perfect right?

Ashleigh and I worked together on a fun photoshoot in Bowen Hills. We explored some scenes in and around the Brisbane showground’s main oval and a car park just over the way.

The heavy contrast in the light from the flash showed off Ashleigh’s flawless skin.

Such an absolute joy to work with. If you find yourself in need of an up-and-coming model (ahem brands I’m looking at you), then reach out to Ashleigh on IG or through me.

Red Equus and Tahlia

My photoshoot with Miss Tahlia Banning feautred horse riding fashion from Red Equus and stunning ultra-fashion from Lumen.

Tahlia is an international, professional model with a bright future. When she asked for a photographer to collaborate with on a fashion photoshoot – I can’t believe she accepted my offer.

Our studio photoshoot in my Northgate studio was flawless.

Tahlia came prepared with multiple outfits and we clicked out the gorgeous photos like true professionals.

I think this image is my favourite – but in truth, there were so many great photos.

I like the blown-out colours, with the colour of Tahlia’s eyes and the gorgeous LuMen jacket shining through.

Poppy Hayes City Style Photoshoot


In our city-style photoshoot, Poppy Hayes and I worked together to boost our respective portfolios.

This shoot took place on the streets of Brisbane City. This particular image was captured on the elevated walkway next to 111 George Street, Brisbane.

In her shoot, Poppy exuded a lovely, polite and calm personality that made it easy to capture her thoughtful moments.

City-style shoots can be raw and powerful or quiet and reflective. This shoot was the latter and captured Poppy’s warm, creative side.

As a seasoned, professional model, Biliana Negrine introduced me to the world of lifestyle fashion and super-fun photoshoots.

What a delight this lady is!

In this photoshoot, we teamed up on the streets and shores of the beautiful Gold Coast to capture some of my most iconic photos ever.

Biliana is a true professional and an amazing muse.

Madison Gawne teen fashion model

One of my first-ever photoshoots with models was the Pastel Playground photoshoot hosted by SEQ Portrait Photography Collaboration on the grounds of the University of Queensland.

Madison by this time was already an experienced model – with a future as a fashion and runway model.

Madison was easy and fun to work with and she introduced me to the world of fashion photography.

Model: Madison Gawne


This image of Tasma Smith was taken in our Northgate studio.

By this time Tasma and I had a good portfolio of images from working together – and a studio shoot seemed the logical progression.

Together we captured this moody portrait that shows off Tasma’s beautiful eye colour and flawless facial features.

Swimwear model Brisbane, Maddi Clarke.


My favourite image from my photoshoot with Maddi Clarke at Mooloolaba Beach wasn’t even a posed moment.

Maddi is a photographer herself, so when she reached out for a photoshoot I had to laugh!

Photographer clients are next-level particular. I had to be on point with this shoot!

I love this image – such a pure reflection of a cute, stylish lady walking on the foreshore.

The beachside photoshoot itself was fun. Sun, sand and crashing waves were the backdrop for our shared images

Model: Maddie Clarke


I wanted to try a moody, thoughtful portrait – and Ava was the perfect muse.

This photo was captured at Caboolture Historical Village during a photo session hosted by SEQ North Side Portrait Photography Collab.

I have to say that Ava, as a young model, is deep and thoughtful. Her poses were poised and effortless. In her lighter moments, her face lit up like a goddess.

Ava’s perfect features make her perfect for a close-up.

Freya Callaghan teen fashion model and actor


Freya Callaghan is a young model and actor whom I have worked with several times.

This photo was captured at Fort Lytton near Brisbane in a high fashion photoshoot hosted by SEQ Portrait Photography Collab.

Freya’s infectious smile lights up a room – or in this case a gunnery turret!

Brilliant like a polished gem – Freya is a delight to work with and satisfying to photograph.

What more could you ask for in a model?

Model: Freya Callaghan


Tassie Gee is as much a social media influencer as she is a model, model sportsperson, and model human being.

This photo of Tassie was in a construction alleyway! Her red dress outshone the background – all I had to do was take the photo!

I love this photo because Tassie’s dress just pops right off the page – bright fashion in your face!

Actor and model, Zita Holly, is well used to spending time in front of a camera.

Zita has already appeared in several short films and, at the time this picture was taken, was working on her very own short film! Talk about talent!

We’re proud to have worked with Zita for a series of actor headshots and some fancy lighting shots as well as a series of photos at Brisbane’s own Northshore in Hamilton.

We expect to see more of Zita on the big and little screens and certainly wish her well in her acting and modeling careers!

I’m proud to say we’ve worked with Tanika Gibson, a social media influencer, model, and lovely person, a couple of times now.

Our collabs are always fun and light-hearted and we get some great shots together.

This one was captured at Caboolture Historical Village just near the cafe. Between the timber posts, there is this bicycle wheel sculpture and with the sun lighting Tanika between the wheels, the shadows give this magical feel.

Check out her eyes! They can see right through you! Just fantastic!

Looking forward to working with Tanika again soon.

Until then, check out her Instagram for more of Tanika Gibson!

Beautiful Bonnie - posing in Sinner vs Saint studio photoshoot in Brisbane

Bonnie L

In my Sinner Vs Saint photoshoot collaboration with Bonnie assisted by talented makeup artist Rachel, I hosted the pair in our Northgate studio for a pair of photoshoots exploring the dark side of humanity first – and then the light, angelic side of psych through the use of light, contrast and angles.

Bonnie was a pleasure to work with and this was my favourite photo of her. It was based on our inspiration photo and harsh black-and-white tones and dark makeup perfectly captured the sinner theme.

I love that we were able to put our spin on the theme and came up with some incredible photos (which you can view here).

Sadly, TFP collaborations will become more scarce as we get busy with brand photography – but I’m still keen to explore new ideas with models and makeup artists so don’t be afraid to reach out on Instagram.


I was so flattered that Sandy chose me to be the photographer for her massive photoshoot at Rileys in Cairns.

Sanava.J is the brainchild of Sandy and her family – intricate, gorgeous bikini and dress strap gems to adorn your beachwear and cocktail dress straps.

Our photoshoot (with three gorgeous models) showcased the versatility of the gems and how they can turn ordinary bikinis and dresses into fashion statements.

I see Sandy’s brand becoming huge. Sanava.J is a game-changer and a brilliant idea. If you don’t have your Sanava.J strap gems yet then I suggest you head to Sanava.J and start ordering!

This image of Abi was from our High Fashion photoshoot collab. We were looking for a strong editorial fashion vibe with high contrast between Abi and the background.

I used a hard bare-bulb flash to dramatically light Abi and show off her skin and clothes while keeping the background drab.

Contact me for a chat if you’re looking for fashion photography that plays with high contrast and strong poses. We have worked with several models that can showcase your fashion and leave your customers wanting more!
