Mission Australia

These are four executions from a beautiful campaign we styled this year for Mission Australia, shot by Simon Harsent and art directed by Dan Oliva. I worked with model maker Ed Horne and a team of craftspeople to produce six pairs of wings in one week. Mission Australia had previously established the wing metaphor but had only executed it in CGI. It was great to go back to basics and shoot this all through camera. The campaign depicted individuals whose lives had changed as a result of Mission Australia’s intervention, crafting these huge wings out of everyday materials found in their environment.

Ambi Pur

Toby Burrows and Jay Furby joined forces once again with this Eau de Toilette series. It was very hard to compose myself watching the talent grope each other with toilet implements.

The LG bubble keeps one free from allergens, we had enormous fun making this little bubble world. It was shot by Ian Butterworth on a tiny set, only about six feet each way and had this gorgeous mural printed on it. Little elements like the quilt cover and tissue box reference the environment. I developed a new found skill/love of blowing bubbles.

We have been shooting a lot of pharmaceutical campaigns lately. I enjoy the creative as they often illustrate intangible concepts in unique ways. This campaign for Seroquel Schizophrenia medication was shot by Sean Izzard and art directed by Craig Chester.

Port Macquarie

Adrian Brown, Pete Longworth and myself took a road trip late last summer and shot this campaign for Port Macquarie Tourism. We ran around hinterlands, beaches and waterways with a van full of retro props and a lot of confused locals. We love the fact that Cummins Nitro Sydney came out of their shell with such a kookie regional tourism campaign. Art Director Christie Peolwane is a top chick!

Last month i did this great campaign for Thompson's vitamins featuring Robbie Deans. Most people will attest to the fact that i am the worlds most unsporting New Zealander consequently I had never heard of Deans. I was amazed at his calm, lovely personality and his tolerance for being dressed in retro tracksuits. Michele Aboud shot these beautiful images, I love seeing a photographer with such a strong fashion background shoot something so contrasting.

52 Weekends Away

Todays issue of Good Weekend features this Weekend Away fashion special. Shot by Damain Bennett at the Hanging Tree WInes in the Hunter Valley, it captures a romantic holiday spirt. To be sensitive to this environment I used a warm neutral colour palette with accents of yellow and orange and light weight luxurious fabrics to create this feminine, country feel. Many thanks to Zanita from Pricillas who is top girl!

Head and Shoulders

Ian Butterworth and I worked on this initiative shoot with Saatchi & Saatchi for Head and Shoulders. Unfortunately Proctor & Gamble were not quite as visionary as art director Toby Pike and choose not to run the campaign. Sheldon Wade did some fabulous make up and I got to create crusty gothic creatures to my hearts content!

Hunter Valley

Jo and I drove up to the Hunter recently to shoot a special edition for Good Weekend magazine, we were reminded how beautiful very early mornings in the country can be.


We recently styled these great sporting portraits of Chris Legh, Tim Cahill and Stephanie Rice shot by Sean Izzard, There is something beautiful about the simplicity and sophistication of the idea.

Tourism Australia

2009 seems to be the year of the underwater shoot and I am very proud to employ a scuba stylist! 
We recently styled this underwater campaign for Tourism Australia. Shot by Ian Butterworth it depicts a heavily stylised business conference in an underwater Australian environment. Special clothing had to be constructed to hold its colour and move well underwater. All talent and props were shot underwater at an Aquatic centre and pieced together with landscape  and underwater wildlife images. You can also see the behind the scenes on my website

Last week I got the very fun job of coming up with nine sexy sparkly little fairies. I enlisted Martin Bray to extend the costumes into the skin with some fabulous body painting

Still Life

In keeping with GFC sensibilities on flexibility I decided to turn my hand to still life styling for my regular client GW magazine. This is my handiwork and I am quite proud of it as a first attempt. Much credit does need to be given to Geoff Boccalatte, as well as being a great photographer he is a great collaborator. To see more click here

Optus - 'We're right behind business'

Part of a ten shot Optus campaign shot by Damien Pleming with creative by Paul Carpenter. It is the first time in many years that Optus has branched out from shooting just animals. Paul had the daunting task of having to continuously come up with animal shadows and business situations.
It was a bit of stylist dream with beautiful locations, tailored business wear and clean minimal textures. To view more images from this campaign click here
