Veterans Instameet #16


Come and join the Veterans Instameet team for a Veterans Instameet with a twist!

This Instameet we will leave our hiking boots and tents packed away, instead we will head indoors and focus on portraits. 

David Boon from Travel in Pixels will co-host this Instameet and teach us the ins and outs of fine art portraiture.

The aim of the event is for everyone to come away with an understanding of studio lighting, the principles of directing a model and how to compose great portraits indoors using natural and artificial light. 

The event will have a $25 cover charge that will cover lunch snacks and a thank you gift to the hosts.

The Instameet will be held in Austral, the exact address will be given on the week of the event. (

Please get in touch if you have any questions

My & Tin.


My & Tin's Pre-wedding Shoot.

I had the pleasure of photographing My and Tin at La Perouse a few weeks before their wedding.

I had big shoes to fill as Tin is also a wedding photographer! 

It was a true pleasure working with this photogenic couple on a cloudy Sunday afternoon.

Enjoy this little sneak peek.

Veterans Instameet #15 - Bombo Quarry


Our first Veterans Instameet for 2018 will be held at one of the most "Instagramable" places on Australias East Coast, Bombo Quarry.

We plan to arrive at the main car park at the Northern end of Bombo Beach at 5:00pm on Saturday 10th March 2018.

Once the sun goes down we will try a spot of steel wool spinning, light painting and night portraits using off camera, remote flashes. 

Be sure to bring some warm clothes, enclosed shoes, a torch, water, tripod and snacks.

We require everyone attending to register with Eventbrite incase of any last minute changes to the plan.

Veterans Instameet #14


Come and join the Veterans Instameet team for our last expedition for 2017. 

This Instameet with see us escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney, heading North to the Central Coast for some time by the water.

We have rented out a house on Lake Macquarie on Saturday 16th December. Numbers are limited to stay overnight, so it will be a first in best dressed for registration. The address will be provided once you register for the event and confirm you will be staying overnight.

To stay overnight there is a $60 charge for accommodation and food.

The plan is to get to the house before dinner, no later than 6pm. We will put on a BBQ and nibbilies. There are no plans to take photos on the Saturday night, rather more of a social event.

We will be up EARLY the next morning to head 20min out to Catherine Hill Bay to capture the sunrise from the Catherine Hill Bay Pier. For anyone who isn’t staying the night and would like to meet with us, the plan is to arrive around 5:00am at Catherine Hill Bay Surf Life Saving Club.

We plan on having a packed breakfast at Catherine Hill Bay, before leap frogging south to visit some of the Central Coasts best photography spots. Locations will include Nora Head and Long Jetty. We will stop somewhere for lunch (additional charges will apply)

We strongly suggest bringing along the following items:
- Warm weather and wet weather clothing
- Hiking Shoes / shoes with good grip
- A torch
- Food
- Plenty of water
- Camera, tripod and remote (if you have one)

After such great success at the last Veterans Instameet we’d love to do another few care packages to the troops overseas. Last Instameet we sent off SIX care packs filled with goodies!

We would love for everyone to bring along a few extra items again, nothing too crazy, just a few things that the troops will appreciate being on the other side of the world at Christmas.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to get in touch with one of the team:

Mathew Bell - 0409 241 419
Andrew Judson - 0425 244 597
Warrick Eady - 0431 295 953

We should be in for a great adventure to end the year.
We hope to see you there!
