Centro – My Everything Place

We completed this campaign in December but have been too busy to show them to the world until now. They have been hanging in Centro Colonnades since Christmas.

We had an absolute blast shooting these in our studio, I think we covered just about every “never work with kids/animals/______” category in one day but everyone and everything worked a treat! Kudos to our stellar production team.

Lightly Salted staff expansion!

It’s clearly been a while since we’ve posted on the blog, the primary reason for this is we have been absolutely hectic with some great work coming in via various channels.

What better way to get back in to the swing of things than with a big announcement! We have a new staff member coming on board. As of Monday 12th April 2010, I will be joined by Lisa – my wonderful wife. Over the last 8 or so months Lisa has been working behind the scenes 1 day a week to help keep the Lightly Salted wheel’s turning smoothly. It’s been a long time in the works but our plan to have her join the team has finally come to fruition and I look forward to the skills (and coffee) she brings to the table as Studio Manager.

If you’re an existing client, many of you will know Lisa from meetings and the odd photo shoot where she’s been there to assist. For those that haven’t met her, you’ll be communicating with her soon as she’ll be handling the administrative side of Lightly Salted. Also, keep your eyes peeled for some fun promo’s coming your way within the next few months.

2009 SAPPAs – South Australian Professional Photography Awards

We interrupt our usual schedule for this breaking news! At the recent SAPPAs, Lightly Salted was awarded 5 silver awards and came runner-up in the Commercial category. The overall standard of entries was very high and we’re proud to be mixing it with the best in the business.

Yoohoo Uluru

Ok, so we get the concept of a blog! We’ve been super busy over the last few months (that time of year – pre and post budget months!) and have neglected this space. And now we’re going away for a week. Tomorrow morning the Lightly Salted crew will be heading North on a trip to Australia’s ‘Red Centre’, much of the time will be spent working on various projects but we’ll try and squeeze some holiday in somehow as well! We’ll only be gone a week so keep those jobs rolling in and we’ll get them sorted on our return (19th Oct).

In the mean time, here’s a brief update on what’s been happening. There’s more in the pipeline that we can’t publish just yet, and some exciting self-promotion work on it’s way to illustrate the rebrand and launch of the new studio. More on that later.

• This morning’s RSB “Dark to Light” fund raising walk

• Austral Clothes Hoist’s new range of packaging (shot in the new studio)

• Rundle Mall Future fashion parade, featuring Cassie from Australia’s Next Top Model

• Oxfam’s latest catalogue cover image

• Additional images from the St Peters Girls Prospectus shoot

Pool-house (of note!)

When Linda of “Interiors by Linda Nolis” approached us with the brief to shoot a pool-house she had styled (and more) we were expecting a small out building with minimal facilities, by a pool. How wrong we were. This pool-house is the shizzle. Large upstairs bedroom with en suite and daybed, open plan kitchen, dining, living and an outdoors/indoors barbecue area are just the foundation of this creation. The outdoors shower is the icing on the cake and was very tempting to jump under on the cold nights we were there photographing. Obviously the first question was “when can we move in?”!

Also notable are all of the mod-cons dotted through-out the house, installed by the clever guys at the BeSmart Group.

Wilderness revisited

When we received the call from Wilderness for a new series of images for school publications we were over the moon to be going back to such a beautiful school (after the shoot for their advertising agency). The girls at Wilderness are so down to earth and willing to co-operate that working with them is a breeze. We came away with some real gems, here are a couple of examples..
