FAREWELL BIG BOB

April 9, 2019

Last week we retired our old faithful Big Bob. We was a custom built, high voltage, 10,000 watt second behemoth that was built in the days of f64 8X10 transparencies.He is just too powerful and out of date now, and it was with great sadness that he was decommissioned like an old navy battleship, 30 years of reliable, faithful service!

September 13, 2016

You can never count on Melbourne’s unpredictable weather, so we had to make our own sun in the studio courtyard for this little ad for Lerice. South of France never looked so good!

This is how you set up a portable still life studio in a crappy garage on location, with help from the fab Brin and Felipe.

MESSY STUDIOS

August 26, 2013

Got in late Friday to find one of the boys had been shooting a folio test in the studio that day. I admire their passion and creative energy, but what a frickin mess! (to be fair it was all clean by Monday)

WAINSCOTING

August 21, 2013

We built this set over the weekend, and I was particularly proud of my first attempt at ‘wainscoting’, the picture frame style panels affixed to the wall. Worked a treat.

Actually had some fun in the studio this week shooting a series of diaramas for Southern Comfort. When I was a little kid, there was a TV show called the Friendly Giant, and this made me feel like him. Ho, ho, ho. (Giant Ho, Ho,  not a Santa type  Ho, Ho.)SC_DIARAMA1_B
