A little bit fashionable

For a few issues of magazines from Country Life Publishing, we’ve put together a regional fashion editorial showcasing the talents of local producers of ethical, handmade clothing. It’s been a blast, styled by Holly Deacon of Anouk. The

Road trip fun

We’re proud to be part of a new online magazine called One Hour Out, photographing and reviewing restaurants in regional areas. Fun. Mike is going to need to renew that gym membership though…

Yarra Valley Pasta

These guys are old friends – the best kind, who make amazing pasta. Love them and their pasta to bits.

Thermo Love

Shooting for TMix Plus – fun, and great food! Styled by Leesa O’Reilly, Cooked by Lesley Russel, Hannah, Sally, & Kha.

Rescued: Kimba

In the heart of “the burbs”, the middle of the mortgage belt in eastern suburban Melbourne, you really don’t expect to find considerable acreage and a horse property and beautiful horses. But right next to new housing developments in Vermont is

Refreshments – local fave

Our friends Ceci and Georgie have prime position at the Healesville Railway Station for their awesome little cafe, Yarra Valley Refreshments. Love their simple tasty work.

Rescued: Bryn and Robin

A kangaroo swapped for a wombat. Unusual as it sounds, that’s how Bryn came to live with Louise. Louise clearly has a heart for wildlife, and has a long-held affection for wombats, saying to us, “You haven’t lived until

Rescued: Hector-bear and a house-full of friends

Where do you start when every animal in a household full of animals has a rescue story of some kind? Hector the Golden Retriever (Hector-bear) greets us at the door like a warm blanket of loveliness. He came from an overseas student house, where

Rescued: Warrigal and Jinka

We have a confession to make. These two brumbies live on the same street as our studio. We spied them when they first moved in, and slightly fell in love with them. It was a no-brainer to visit Meagan for our Rescued project. The story is a good

Rescued : Bundy

Lisa and Evie introduced us to Bundy the Blue Heeler, Olivia, Peaches, and Ginger the chickens, and Sabrina the Teenage Cat. We talked mostly about Bundy the Blue Heeler. He came from Australian Working Dog Rescue. Sure, he’s got issues and

Vintage #2 – The Conversation

Vintage in the Yarra Valley is not all about picking grapes at ridiculous hours of the morning hither-to only known to exist by party-goers who refer to it as “the time you go home from the party”. It’s not all about squishing

Vintage 2015 #1

It’s well and truly Vintage in the Yarra Valley – Vendange if you’re French. It’s that time of year when the grapes are picked and made into wine. We visit a number of our wine making friends at this time of year – wine

A little show to kick off 2015

We have a small show opening at Round Bird Can’t Fly, one of the amazing little food places that have given us a reason to stop in Lilydale. It’s a small collection of quirky prints on the subject of what draws us to the sea.

Christmas Eve and Beautiful Things.

It’s Christmas Eve, so what better way to celebrate than with a Christmas styling workshop from the James sisters, Kate and Clare. Two of our favourite people (ever) hold their annual Christmas workshops in a tiny heritage hall, and style up a

Starting new adventures

We’ve been pulling our ideas together with inspirational material for ages, and finally the idea starts to become reality. This is a little teaser of something we’ll be putting a fair bit of energy into in 2015. Cafe del Sol at Safety

Inspiring: Places

This is a continuing series of things that inspire us. In this episode, we’ve taken a look at some places we’ve been recently that have inspired thoughts of new work, some new ideas, and given rise to new opportunities. We’ve been

Re-visiting Artists

Since 2008, we have been visiting the studios of artists, delving into their creative worlds, taking portraits and intimate little studio details to help the Yarra Valley Open Studios program. For 2014, our brief is “The Professional

A Museum, and a Master.

The master of Australian architectural photography is John Gollings. He’s been all over the world taking extraordinary images of buildings. When the TarraWarra Museum of Art opened, naturally Gollings was the man to photograph it. So for us to

Following an Empire

For eighteen months, we have photographed Speigelworld’s Empire – best described as … hell, I don’t even know. Maybe I could describe it as a Burlesque Circus. Or something. For the last season in Melbourne, we have been

Off Brunswick #1

We spend a bit of time around Brunswick St in Fitzroy and Collingwood. Around Brunswick St, not so much On. We wondered what it was that drew us away from the high street, into the alleys and surrounds, looking for great new and old places to eat,

Bottle Season

Our studio is in the Yarra Valley, so of course we have the pleasure of working for some of Australia’s best winemakers. Seriously, it’s so cool what comes through our doors sometimes, and the places we traipse to take photos for these

Looking for new inspiration

We take trips to our fave think-spaces all the time. It’s vital. We make time for it. If we didn’t, we would lose our creative vitality, get bogged down in the urgency of trivial things, and the love for our work would dry out. We are

Ashley and Paul

Stones again – love this venue, great couple!

Jeremy, Movida

DJ Jeremy – Mr Smith, works at Movida. Love his front of house work in both arenas.
