We provide all this with enthusiasm, professionalism, abundant qualifications and above all fantastic customer service. Why are we doing it? Because we love it! Our industry has changed vastly in only a short time but we have kept up to speed and simply delight in playing with big cameras, fast computers & huge gigabytes.
We got a sneak peak of this year’s Townsville Grammar School production. The very colourful and fun, “The Servant of Two Masters”. This comedy by Venetian playwright, Carlo Goldoni is an absolute riot of laughter and our photographer, Rob Parsons found it difficult to hold the camera steady with all the antics at the shoot :-)
We just love the creative opportunities that our work with the mining industry gives us. In February our photographers, Rob Parsons and Naomi Loader travelled to Queensland, Australia’s, North West Minerals province to produce imagery for Xstrata’s upcoming Annual Report and other publications. We photographed from helicopters 3000 feet above ground through to kilometres below in underground mines and everything in between. From big trucks and diggers through to inspiring and engaging professionals engrossed in what they do and they’re happy to tell you all about it. It was a great trip and the team at Xstrata are always a pleasure to work with. Thanks Guys!
Our graphic designer put together some album pages for this beautiful relaxed family wedding at the beach… Choosing the right photos was not easy as there were so many wonderful shots!
For us it’s still exciting to see a website going life… MaliSilver is a Townsville based business selling affordable silver jewellery from around the world. Our graphic designers worked closely together with the client to create this beautiful looking online shop.
When Cato Constructions moved up from Sydney to Townsville they asked us to redesign their logo, stationery and website (which is coming soon…). The two initial Cs in the logo symbolise tree rings as Cato Constructions specialises in carpentry and works mainly with wood.
The old Great Northern Railway Station in Townsville worked as a wonderful backdrop for these great portraits of the Young family.
Brewster Hjorth Architects did a great job redeveloping the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library at JCU Townsville. It was a real highlight for us to photograph this wonderful piece of architecture.
Being a pilot himself, Rob, our photographer, really enjoyed this photo shooting for Nautilus Aviations. Flying high over Townsville he took some great shots of a Long Ranger IV helicopter.
Cloncurry is a township situated within the Western Minerals Province of North West Queensland. In 1939 a Gala ball was celebrated in their newly built Town Hall. Years rolled by and the Dazzle Ball faded. Recently though, the Cloncurry Town Hall was fully refurbished incorporating a multi Million dollar development, thanks to the generosity of Xstrata, to become the Cloncurry Community Precinct.
To celebrate the opening, the Ball was revived and November 2012 saw over 300 people, from far and wide, descend on the close knit town to once again celebrate the Cloncurry Dazzle Ball.
It’s a privilege to be involved in an event of such historical importance as this. When the Cloncurry Shire Council asked us to travel out from Townsville to provide photography the answer was a resounding yes! It was a great atmosphere with lots of laughs, great food and excellent company.
May the Dazzle Ball go on for many years to come :-)
