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
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…
These guys are old friends – the best kind, who make amazing pasta. Love them and their pasta to bits.
Shooting for TMix Plus – fun, and great food! Styled by Leesa O’Reilly, Cooked by Lesley Russel, Hannah, Sally, & Kha.
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
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.
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
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
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
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 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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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,
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
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
Stones again – love this venue, great couple!
DJ Jeremy – Mr Smith, works at Movida. Love his front of house work in both arenas.
