What a fun evening last night turned into.
It was the TABLE4TEN annual charity event to raise awareness and funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
Myself, Susie and Matt, shared the job of documenting the evening by photographing the 21 tables for ten, at restaurants and boardrooms scattered all over Hobart.
My trusty sidekick Jodi, from Edible Social Media, kindly agreed to be my assistant for the evening, providing me with drop offs and pickups to the doors of my allocated venues, it was quite a night!
Our evening kicked off at the Chairmans Lounge at the Bellrieve Oval, onto The Source at MONA, next the boardroom at the new RACT building, Ethos in Elizabeth St, followed by a spin in the revolving restaurant at the top to the Wrest Point Casino tower and lastly to a private residence in Taroona.
Come 9pm the secret location of the afternoon party was announced and the scattered parties all converged on the Hobart Museum courtyard for a continuation of the party atmosphere, live band, fundraising auctions, and of course more drinks and nibbles.
I take my hat off to Darren Alexander for his tireless efforts in bringing this whole event to fruition, truly a memorable evening. Photographs from the evening will appear on the Table4Ten website over the coming weeks.
On Tuesday I had the pleasure of photographing some gorgeous silk evening gowns for the very talented designer Najibeh Nafari.
Great team work in the studio with many thanks to Rachel Beswick from "Some Hallucination" for her excellent hair styling and makeup. Also big thanks to my muse, my model, my niece Grace - whose good humour makes her a pleasure to work with!
Mr 1 month. Such a good bubba! This young man took his first formal photoshoot all in his stride. No fuss, just much cuteness!
Today the studio was filled with sisterly love and giggles. Lots of fun and outfit changes, frills and flounces, pearls and jewels! Just gorgeous, thanks lovely ladies for brightening my day with your sunny personalities!
Hi, I just realised that I have been neglecting my blog - oooops, so many fun projects on the go!
Carly joined me in the studio yesterday for a fun session of portraits. We shot several different "looks" . . . contemporary portraits, business profile pics for her graphic design business, "Carly Design" plus some edgier ones for her to use for her music promotion as well.
We also shot some "moving pictures" in the form of some business promo videos for Carly to incorporate into her new website which will be up and running soon.
We had a busy time, lots of laughs and created together a broad range of great images!
You're a good sport Carly, thanks for your good company, Helen
I had the pleasure of fellow photographer Jessica King in the studio this week.
We chatted and laughed a lot and eventually got around to the reason we were there together - to shoot some promo portraits for her.
Fresh and fun was the brief, so here she is - looking just that! Thanks for your company Jess!
Mid week I had a date in the studio with Polly to shoot some business portraits for her new website and business.
Once the job was complete we then got on with the fun of creating some images to promote Startup Tas, the great new organisation set up to assist new (and not so new) businesses develop and grow.
Thanks Polly for sharing your enthusiasm!
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing Rachels gorgeous "Fairy Floss" inspired hairdo following her practice run for the hair comps the following day.
Fabulous fun, check out Facebook for further images from the shoot!
This afternoon was a busy one in the studio shooting the beautiful award winning olive oil from Weston Farm at Brighton.
I had to give myself a firm talking to not to eat all the props before I had finished shooting - olives, tomatoes, creamy cheese and crusty bread, all drizzled with the luscious olive oil, mmmmmm
Pop on over to my business Facebook page to see further images from the shoot!
