Adriano Zumbo

This guy is awesome and it's no surprise he's a sweet toothed patissier extraordinaire - having grown up passing the time in his parents supermarket he is a self confessed encyclopaedia of every different sweet and dessert sold from the 1970's on! Always the kid at school with a bag of lollies he has gone on to create some of the most mind boggling desserts and to die for macarons you'll ever come across. All the while being the most modest, hard working and lovely guy you'll ever meet. Check out some of my photos from the Miele Masterclass at Pantry Brighton. Go Zumbo!


Vets and Pets...

I recently travelled north to shoot for Vetwell veterinary hospitals at their various practices located around Brisbane. What fun it was to get behind the scenes and see these dedicated people at work. As well as capturing the vets and vet nurses in action we took the time to photograph some of their own gorgeous pets too. Here are a few of my favourites.

From photos to painting...

Once upon a time I went to art school and studied painting. Although it never became a career I still love to paint and every now and again will get inspired to create a new piece. These two paintings were done for friends and as you can see are of their dearly loved pooches. Both were in Botswana. Enzo the Ridgeback was just the most beautiful dog, a city dude who found himself suddenly a bush dog in Botswana. Many times we laughed (and stressed) so much as he tried to adapt to life in the bush and around dangerous animals. He got lost in the bush on a number of occasions, barked at elephants, came within metres of a leopard without even noticing and scared the heck out of guests when they thought this paw prints were those of a Lion. 

Unfortunately, a while after I had left Botswana I heard he disappeared whilst out on a horse safari and they were unable to find him again. I was so heart broken to hear that. The beautiful Enzo xx

Working with Animals...

They say don't do it but I disagree! Off to Brisbane this week to shoot some behind the scenes at local vet clinics. I had an awesome time on my last few visits which were centered around capturing the vets with their beloved pets. Cats, dogs and even a chicken. Here is a look back at some of the results...

Nothing better than a weekend away somewhere beautiful to relax, enjoy the outdoors, good food, wine and photography.  Stunning location on the Mornington Peninsula at Cape Schanck Lighthouse.
