Networking... Still the Most Important Tool To A Photographer

So many  things have changed over the last 10 years in Photography.  Film has almost completely disappeared, a computer has replaced the darkrooms, video cameras and SRL's have merged and phones are becoming many peoples choice for point and shoot cameras.  But like any business the one then that has not changed is networking. As a wedding photographer I actually do care about our clients.  I want them to get fantastic service and have a wonderful day. That is why on our websites affiliates page we only have service providers who we have worked with and have impressed us.  And one that really impresses us is a make-up artist, Jana-Maree.  Towards the end of last year I was asked by a work colleague to help his cousin who is a make-up artist wanting to do a shoot but had just lost her photographer.  Being one to jump at the chance to help someone and hopefully met new contacts I was very eager to help out.  I can tell you I am so glad I did.

Jana-Maree is a young make-up artist that is truly fantastic at what she does.  It was a great opertunity to work with her and soon Jana-Maree &  Warnock Imagery will be launching a new Maternity session that gives the mum to be a professional make-up and a portrait sitting.   I am also lucky to have a few more model shoots in the pipe line with Jana-Maree,  so we will be seeing more of her work.

If you are getting married or just need the services of a make-up artist for what ever reason please do yourself a favor and get in contact with Jana-Maree, http://www.janamareemakeup.com.au.

Old House @ Burra

The old house at Burra

On our last interstate trip we went to South Australia. The first thing I do when ever I go to a place I have never been before is look up images of that place on Flickr. It was no different with the Trip to South Australia, but I found a fantastic photograph of this old house in a town called Burra. I now had a reason for the trip and some developed our travel plan around visiting Burra and the old house.

Models

During the winter we like to try different things. Landscapes, HDR, anything and everything that looks good but is different to weddings. Last year I was introduced to a website called Model Mayhem A place where models, photographs make artists etc can come together and trade time for time. True some people charge but we use it as a place to find models so we can try out new ideas are try photographs we also wanted to do. Last year we met Adele who was great to work with and had a unique look about her. It was a lot of fun. We are currently organising a new model shot for a few weeks time soo stay tuned

Introducing a new star...

A new star

The purpose of this blog is really just a place where I can post updates, projects and fun things that do not really relate to the business of Warnock Imagery.  While we take photography many weddings and happy couples what do we do in our off season?  That season is now and hence the birth of this site.  The idea here is to post pictures and updates, successes and failures of things, photography related, I want to try/learn or an just interested in.  And with that in mind I would love to introduce Caleb!  Being 2 photographers first born he will grace this pages as will his younger sister as she be more and more the subject of the lens pointing.

I do truely love this image of our little guy.  We were away for a weekend in Albany West Australia last winter in was cold it was miserable and poor Caleb had such a bad cold, you can see it in his eyes.  But each day as I got to get the camera gear ready I would here " I come too, Dad" and he did. He wouldn't leave our side.
