“This is what happens when I leave a camera on the beach in the sub Antarctic with the video running in front of a curious baby elephant seal. I love these guys, so interactive and always sticking their nose in things.” @scott.portelli

How wonderful is it that we laugh because our bodies cannot contain the joy...!!
Orange and blue together I think really seems to be my favourite two colours of food to put together. So it was obvious that I just had to use my blue backdrop while shooting these dried oranges 🍊 from @maryvalleyfoodco What do you think ? Do you like the blue and orange too ?
I am so excited to share with you all this special project that I got to work on this year. My very talented friend @benitabensch has released her book that she wrote on her journey to conceive and the challenges that came with this by living in rural Australia. The really exciting part for me is Benita asked me to photograph the front cover and I know it’s a long way from where I have been focusing my photography this year with the food but I just couldn’t say no. How cool too that I just found out the book is an international bestseller too 👏! I also received my copies in the mail today so it’s exciting to actually see it in print 😀Thanks Benita for trusting me to capture your cover and allowing me to get creative. You can get more info and order the book at www.benitabensch.com
I have been using this assortment of pretty little biscuits to torture my husband who has been wanting to try that chocolate swirl one in the middle for the last few days. Unfortunately for him I still have a few more shots that I want to do with it 🤣 Looks like he will have to be patient and just wait till I am finished 😉
Horse head rock near Bermagui is a popular destination for photographers. It has a crazily dangerous little eroded access track down a steep cliff though. This was quite the struggle with camera gear on my back and a two year old who didnt want to be carried, but the beach was awesome to have all to ourselves for the afternoon. I'd like to go back someday in better light and a higher tide.

I found this SE QLD product from @maryvalleyfoodco online recently and I just knew I had to get my hands on them. I had some ideas of how I wanted to photograph the oranges so recently when I was in Amamoor I was able to get a bottle of the dried oranges. I have done a few shots with them now so I will pop them up over the next few weeks. These oranges are amazing and can be used in so many ways. I still have to put one in a G&T for a shot but it will happen.... promise 😂
I had a great time this past Friday night photographing the Melbourne Dental School Postgraduate Ball! 5 hours of shooting covering the venue, pre-drinks, speeches and media wall shots for all the guests. 270 images are currently uploading to my secure website ready for review!
Please get in touch with me to have a chat about a similar service for your next event!
Trifle will always mean Christmas to me but Meringues or Pavlova are something that will always appear on the Christmas table as well. Yesterday we had our annual Xmas Party with our closest friends so I took along these little delights. It was a stinking hot Queensland day and Summer has just started here so I really couldn’t go wrong with the meringues. The silly season has officially started and that’s okay when there is food like this around 😋😋😋
