New client Kerry Hill Architects kicked off our relationship with a fantastic commission, photographing the new and entirely spectacular State Theatre Centre of Western Australia. This new building is the cornerstone of the state government’s makeover of the…

Our work was capturing the essence of the TV pieces for the print publication.¬†Anyone who has worked alongside a film crew will know that the photographer is way way down the food chain and must patiently wait their turn for…

Black Swan 2011 Season Programme

The funnest shoot I’ve done all year is how I’ve been characterising the work we’ve just finished for Black Swan State Theatre Company. The whole thing was a gas from start to finish. I really loved working with Geoff Bickford and Esther Lee from Dessein again and meeting new clients Nancy and Kate from Black…

Afternoon shoot at Zekka

We reckon it’s one of the best retail interiors in Perth, a beautifully executed balancing act; some corners feel as though the tradies have just downed tools for smoko (there’s no sense that they’re coming back though).

SoDAA – Bremer Bay House

We’re horizon snobs here at Acorn Photo. It’s just that they’re not all created equal. Why the remote south coast of Western Australia should be blessed with a disproportionately large number of them is beyond us all though. We’re not alone in recognising it either. There’s a queue forming somewhere outside Albany to get a…
