Pernod Ricard - St Hugo

The stunning St Hugo restaurant in the Barossa Valley hosted the World's Top 50 Restaurants Academy Chairs for lunch as part of their tour to South Australia.

I photographed the occasion for Pernod Ricard - beautiful food and wine, there were many languages spoken by the guests but I could tell they had a memorable afternoon.

BYLD - Minno Apartments

Commissioned by BYLD Constructions and captured 40m up in the air from a crane, this image is now taking pride of place in the display apartment for the Minno Apartments on Greenhill Rd overlooking the city of Adelaide and parklands in between - I love how it has been cleverly designed and installed by BigWig to give a real sense of the views that will be seen from the finished project. An attempt was made by another party to capture the scene by drone/UAV but the resolution needed for output of 20m wide required a different approach. From the crane I captured over 30 vertical images on my 36mp camera and then stitched them all together for the resulting panorama - clear detail can be seen of Torrens Island power station in the distance and signage on buildings in the city clearly read.

BAE Systems - Garden Island

BAE Systems manages a broad program of warship engineering services - these images were used to display the working relationship between BAE Systems and the Royal Australian Navy. Taken at Garden Island, Sydney around and aboard Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) ship HMAS Canberra

Zerella Fresh

One of Australia's major suppliers of fresh potatoes, carrots and onions, Zerella Fresh approached me to capture a refreshed image library to show their story both in studio and on location at Virginia and near Parilla in the Mallee region of South Australia. Of course the answer was always going to be "Yes!" when I was asked the question "Should I get the plane out of the shed so we can get some aerials of the pivots?"  I can happily report that their various varieties of potatoes are delicious mashed and baked!
