CAIRNS PHOTOGRAPHY
2017 was packed with sports carnivals, commercial photography
politicians and portraits culminating in a big makeover for our studio
at Pine Creek Pictures
Here is a selection from the year....

Cairns Holiday Photography - Christmas Photography
December, 2017.
A wonderful end to a packed year. Taking your own family photo is tricky at the best of times! We gained a new subject, Bertie to accompany Fred, Dominic & Lisa for the Christmas card shoot
and Dominic celebrated by climbing up Bell Peak North in very hot conditions. This experiment with a long exposure and a torch was fun to do and only took 15 attempts!

Cairns Animal Photography - Horse Portrait Photography
November 2017
Sadly this year we lost both Norman and Saxon leaving Fred without a mate. So in November we welcomed Bertie otherwise known as Loceano, a thoroughbred
who had come to the end of his racing career. For the horsey people out there, he is a 7 year old bay gelding by Lonhro,a rather famous stallion. This was the first
ride and I am peased to say he is a lovely quiet boy.
