McGinniss Wedding Reception

Here are a few shots from the wedding reception that I shot for some good friends of mine.
The entire day was a great learning experience for me, and hopefully I’ve captured some important memories for them to look back on in the future.

NOTE: If any friends or family would like to purchase prints of any of the images from the day, just contact me @ brooksrl@telstra.com and I’ll be happy to discuss the options.

Prints will be sourced from my un-compressed, high-resolution original files. And are available in a number of different sizes, finishes and products.

First wedding shoot, pretty pleased

On the weekend just passed I had the pleasure/ challenge of shooting my first wedding for some friends of mine, although it was only the reception and some family portraits beforehand.
Given the constraints I had from time for shooting, the large amount of people and combinations that they wanted, and dealing with weather conditions (quite windy and late afternoon sun) I’m relatively happy with the raw results from the camera.

Falling Apart

While on a lunchbreak at work i thought i’d take a leisurely walk around the local area with the camera and see if i could spot anything interesting worth shooting.  I’m trying to expand my skills and process into architecture and after being inspired by some of Alex Wise’s, Balck and Whites (free plug!! you can find his blog on the sidebar over there >>>)

I saw some relatively interesting stuff, but the older buildings usually have a lot more character, and lend themselves to black and white a little more, due to the natural contrasts produced by their varying colours and textures.  None moreso than Hobarts, Holy Trinity Church, which has recently fallen into disrepair with the sandstone begining to deteriorate, and evensome of the small spires falling to the ground below.

My Other Hometown

Since I can remember, my family has been holidaying and living at Eaglehawk Neck (Near Port Arthur) on the Tasman Peninsula, in SOuth East Tasmania. Apart from the usual tourist attractions, it is one of the most beautiful parts of the state, and I feel lucky to ahve a lot of frinds and family in the area.
However, I have never really taken a lot of photographs of the area.
Being somethng that you see frequently, you tend to take it for granted. However I do have a couple of images i’d like to share, but rest assured, I intend on bulking out this part of my portfolio in the coming months!!

My Hometown

I was born in Hobart and have lived here all my life,

so it seems fitting that i should share some of my photography from the local area.

I hope you enjoy viewing them.

Hobarts Bowen Bridge and its reflections across the Derwent River at sunset

Another angle of the bridge from the same day, looking south towards Hobart City.

Hobarts Bowen Bridge, reflecting the orange sunset glow. Driving home from work I was presented with the great colours and reflections, and as always, the camera was “riding shotgun”
