Australian Outback lanscape on film

I photograph people and their stories, families, loved ones and little moments of connection. Landscape photography doesn’t come naturally to me. This few frames I’ve captured on medium format kodak film while driving around Blackall, Longreach and Barcaldine. I have taken so much form this trip. I’ve learned that photographing landscape is extremely calming and satisfying. 


Newborn photography sessions at home

There is something very special about family and newborn photography sessions at home. There is no pressure of time as well as presence of unknown people around. Everyone can be much more relaxed.

Window light must be one of the photographers most loved places in the house. But the true magic always happens in honest connection.

This time of the year in Brisbane is the best for family lifestyle sessions both indoor and outdoor.

Family photography on film

I wonder if the fixation of digital/phone photography takes away the joy of it? The need of documenting everything around with Iphone is definitely not a foreign feeling.  I love the flexibility of this modern medium. 

Some time ago I made a decision to avoid digital photography during my family holidays. I took less photographs and I was able to relax and spend more time with my children. My old 35mm camera is the only source of documenting that time. 36 frames is not a lot in comparison to what I’m used to. Sometimes I wait months to develop that roll of film. Every time I develop it my heart explodes with love and most of the time I love nearly every single frame. Even if it’s not perfectly focused or exposed I still love it and treasure it.

This experience makes me realise what makes the photographs so important. It needs to contain love, emotion, honest experience of one another or peaceful moment of contemplation. I also think that choosing right location for your family session is necessary.
