Happy Birthday Dominic!
December 2012
Shhh! Dominic turned 50 on Christmas day! So we went to Hawaii to celebrate...We climbed Mauna Kea which was a bit like going to Mars, we stayed at Turtle Bay resort just up the road
from the pipeline beach where Joel Parkinson won the surfing comp, we saw hundreds of turtles outside our apartment, battled tourists on Waikiki Beach - no GFC there for sure. And we saw the
elusive Iwii, a giant red honeyeater, just beautiful...

Cairns Studio Portrait Photography
December 2012
Jill, Pryde & newly born Bo Tyler interrupted their travels to come into the studio for a family portrait. Bo Tyler got into the spirit of things after much cajoling, hysterical laughter
clapping & bell jingling! Made mum & dad laugh anyway....

Cairns Family Portrait Photography
November, 2012
Jack, Harry & Samantha came out to Little Mulgrave for their family portrait. Jack & Harry were very attentive brothers & had fun climbing the fences & gates, but I do think Samantha
had a bit of extra help getting up onto the fence....and staying there!

Cairns Sports Photography
October, 2012
This year's AFL Masters competition was held in Townsville at the new Murray Ireland Stadium by the Riverwalk. A great 10 days of sport was had & the army really entered into the spirit of
the occasion with cannons going off, helicopters and fireworks. A good few injuries again but much fun was had & nobody stole the field defibrillator this year!

Cairns Commercial Photography
August 4, 2012
Professional photography isn't always as glamorous as people might think. But sometimes a nice job comes along. It really is hard to beat spending a couple of days out on the Low Isles, just off Port Douglas. It took quite a few weeks to wait for the weather to be just right, but preparation is always the key to success and it was worth the wait. Our model families enjoyed their day out and the cheerful caretakers did not object to a glass of champagne at sunset on this deserted island. Even some of the local inhabitants posed very nicely for us.

 

 

 

 

 

Cairns Sports Photography
July 28, 2012
This month we had some new sports to photograph and had the chance to shoot sailing at Ellis Beach for something different. Getting in the support dinghy, full of sea water, was a bit of a worry with the camera gear but we were ok once out to a bigger and more stable boat. Personally I would prefer to stay on dry land but all the sailors thought the conditions were fantastic. It was great to get the chance to try some different sports photography.

The Queensland State Cross Country Championships were held in the Trinity Anglican School grounds. Lisa got her first go at some sport action photography & would very clearly like to state that this is definitely Dominic's domain! She didn't think cross country runners would go quite that fast.....Here are a few images from the sports carnival.

The Oceania Athletics Carnival was held at Barlow Park & athletes came from 22 countries to compete in the track and field events. The olympic 4 x 400m relay team from Japan ran on the last day & were amazing to watch. Here are a few of our favourite images from the sports carnival.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palm Cove Beach Photography
June 25, 2012
Susie invited us to photograph her Mum’s birthday up at Palm Cove Beach. All the family came along for their family portrait. Amazingly all nine kids were absolutely perfect and had a great time. Late evening out at the beach is always a perfect time for kids portraits and family photos. The provision of champagne for the photographer is an optional extra but always appreciated!



 

 

 

Cody & Jacob Majer’s first outdoor portrait at Little Mulgrave
May 15, 2012
Regular customers Cody & Jacob decided to break out from the indoor studio portraits & come & visit our outdoor studio in the Little Mulgrave Valley. They enjoyed the rural setting, climing on the gates & running through the long grass.Now the weather has turned good, it is a perfect time for those outdoor portraits, well apart from today that is!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Atherton Deb Ball
May 12, 2012
This year’s Atherton Debutantes were as delightful as ever. And I am pleased to say that we found a means of hanging the backdrop without it getting all tangled in knots – those silver dangly things are worse than coat hangers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indonesian Holiday
April 25, 2012
In April, Dominic took a well earned holiday to the lovely & little known island of Halmahera in Indonesia. He visited the friendly people of the little fishing village Sidangoli who were all keen to have their photos taken. It was joy to walk the streets past all the smiling people with cries of ”Hello meester!” wherever they went.

In the 21st Century where everyone has a mobile phone with a camera, traditional villagers are no longer camera shy like they used to be. Indeed, everyone wanted photos with us in as well!

Cairns Rural Photography - Mareeba
February 26, 2012
After a very busy 2011, we finally had a bit of time to relax at our new house at Mareeba. The weather was beautiful. Our Christmas table & chairs finally arrived & we tried our hand at a bit of fencing which we are rather proud of, but we don't plan to give up the day job!

Cairns Sport Photography - Northern Pride
January 8, 2012.
Every year we photograph the Northern Pride for their promotional poster. Each year a different exotic location in Far North Queensland is selected & this year we tried the army ducks at Rainforestation in Kuranda. Not even filling the 4WD with unleaded petrol prevented us from getting to the shoot! Everyone was very pleased with the results (well, apart from the Nissan Service Dept)

 

Cairns Family Photography - Bowes Family
