We have just had the most exciting, yet busiest, month or so we probably ever have had in The Whitsundays, with visitors, business travel and going live with a new range of fashion accessories (already sold out), keeping us totally occupied during our waking hours.
Another of our many jobs is editing images for social media accounts, stock photography sales and prints.
We take all types of photos including aerials from helicopters, underwater shots, food and fashion, plus portraits and landscapes. We use a variety of gear to produced these images. DSLR cameras, drones, GoPro's and iPhones, yet stick to Lightroom and Photoshop for editing purposes.
Over the past 2 months we have well over 2 thousand images to go through, thanks to many trips showing visitors the magnificent Whitsundays region.
It's great to take guided tours such as the Hill Inlet Day Tour with Cruise Whitsundays, as we can leave our friends in the capable hands of the tour guide and go off and do our photography work that we planned in advance.
We also turn our friends into models at times. We take the opportunity to apply our craft whilst they enjoy being tourists.
One of our recent business trips was to Hamilton Island. Family was staying on the island and became our models, working really hard when we required images of cocktails by the pool for an upcoming assignment. We regard this as a win - win situation.
Hope you enjoy our small sample of images from over the past few months.
Life in The Whitsundays is never dull and always full of natural beauty.
A quiet coffee before sunrise at Cape Gloucester before we start telling our models where to stand and how to pose.
One of the perks of the job. Swimming with turtles at Hamilton Island.
Finally found time to advertise our new fashion range of scarves using an image of coral found in The Whitsundays. Sold out the first day.
Our granddaughter Sophie loves the water and makes the perfect model.
Whitehaven Beach. We do a lot of photography here and it's a must see for all visitors to the region.
Aerial photography can now be done with drones, yet it's aways a thrill hanging out of a helicopter to get that special shot.
The guided tour to the Hill Inlet Lookout allows us to do our own thing while our family and friends are shown the magnificent views.
They thought they could relax on Whitehaven Beach before we were called to board the Cruise Whitsundays vessel for the homeward journey. Just one more photo before you go!
