With Spring in full swing and colour starting to come back into the day it inspired me to share some brightly coloured produce images I created over the last 12 months. The images were for various social media campaigns and were simple at home recipes to show some exciting ways to use in season produce.
Perfect time to bring on the warm drinks !
Working with the talented team at Vibe Creative we created the new packaging for the Aldi Alcafe range.
Included in the range are coffee’s a chai latte and hot chocolates. Perfect for this time of year as Sydneys winter is in full swing brrrr. Below is my fave the Dark Cappuccino YUM!!!

I recently had the pleasure of working with a very passionate family on the launch of their new coffee range Malgudi Days.
As a coffee lover I was fascinated and learned a lot over this shoot. Malgudi Days is crafted for a South Indian filter coffee and is sourced from the finest specialty grade indian coffee growers and includes chicory also from the highest quality. It is carefully roasted locally in Sydney in small batches to ensure quality.
The pouring technique is made from arms length height which creates aeration and bubbles which is one of the elements we tried to capture within the images.

I had the pleasure of working on a few projects for the launch of the new Powerade ION4!
One of my favourites includes a piece you may have seen on many a bus shelter recently. As well as the bottle and background images we mixed flash with hand held long exposures to give light burst inspiration for the final piece. My kind of fun!!!

Great to see the delicious Sara Lee Incredibly ice cream and cheesecake range hit stores.
I worked with the passionate creative director Lisa Hastings and Vibe Creative team with styling by Nicole Szabason to create these images.
The cheesecakes were lit through diopters to isolate and hero the slice. while the ice cream was a particular challenge as we wanted to capture the final image in 1 shot and with 10-15 hero scoops needed you can imagine we had to work fast… who said action photography isn’t needed in food.
Many a cheesecake and ice-cream tub were eaten in the making… but who could resist 🙂
