Paganin House by Iwan Iwanoff

In case you haven’t heard this Floreat landmark caught fire last night and is in pretty bad shape. I will forever think of this house as the Fini house. Adrian I shot there at least three times during the Fini years, including a memorable winter fashion shoot for Perth retailers of yore, Aherns, on a 42° day.

I thought I’d share some shots from two visits we made for magazines. Angles were somewhat limited on our first visit as the Finis hadn’t long owned it and were still in the process of making some changes. The second shoot scored Adrian the cover of InSite Magazine a few years ago. The fashion shots will have to wait – they’re on film, no scans to hand.

You can read more about the house here.

Better late than never

Red Meets Blue offices

Red Meets Blue offices

About this time last year Rob and I popped down the street to the Red Meets Blue offices to photograph their interior fitout. At the time, Rob said, “These images would make a great blog post.” Then we forgot about it – until yesterday.

I rediscovered these whilst trawling our back catalogue for the past year for a folio update. Rob, flicking through some of the prepped materials said, “You know, these images would make a great blog post.” Total déjà vu

We strarted at Red Meets Blue late in the afternoon and were there well into the evening. John Ciniquina has created an inspiring lofty space full of playful details to work with. It’s always a joy working collaboratively so the fact that the RmB team had strong ideas about the shot content and styling was a boon.

Originally two separate offices, RmB knocked out one wall to convert the two into a single office space. Loads of room, great wooden surfaces, polished concrete floors… it reminded me a lot of the offices I’d been to in New York and I have to admit I’m a little jealous.

Speaking of New York, look carefully in one of the wide shots and you can see the one of John’s own Diana Camera images, of what looks like Midtown, used as wallpaper. Anyway, here are the images… one year later. But better late than never, right?



shout, shout, let it all out


Been a while since we’ve had the energy to send an email blast. We’ve launched a new website and switched to a new blast provender since we did it last. And we’ve been filling in our spare time doing a spot of photography too!
Watching the stats come in for a relatively little campaign reminds one of all the help needed to make it happen.
There’s the gang at the nuthouse keeping the writhing database tamed and updated. Thanks Shirley, Adrian, Darren, Jack and Henry!
Then there’s Mrs Graffin, designer to the starstruck who whipped up our beautiful trio of templates (subscribe and collect the whole set).
Glenn, Judy and James at OM4 brought the whole shebang to virtuality with their usual patented blend of patience and panache.
John Browne, despite his retiring nature, will not escape mention. Those who know him will understand why. Those who don’t have their research cut out for them. This time Gen Y kiddies, Mr Google ain’t gonna help ya.
Anyway you can check it out here. If ya like the look of it sign up. We got more wild infotainment comin’ your way. If you like …
