★ Mathew Packer Photography

Bit by bit my photography website has begun to take form. I’m using Thesis v1.6b as the framework, and of course I’m tweaking the heck out of it. I’m still not sure this is the final iteration, but it’s the direction I’m heading for now.

This weekend I’m heading into the studio with an assistant, make up artist, and a model, so sometime next week there will be another update with a load more photos.

★ Weigh in Week 6

Yeh I know, week 4 and 5 should’ve come before week 6……..but I have excuses, each one better than the last. Anyway, the last couple of weeks have been really busy, as you would expect with a newborn in the house, but I’ve still been trying to keep things on track.

Cath’s been really good with organising my lunches and things this week, definitely wouldn’t have been a good without her doing that. Continue reading

★ App Review: The Best Camera

Yeh ok so I’m a bit of a Chase Jarvis fanboy. The guy is one of my favourite photographers. Not only is he pretty well the king of lifestyle photography, he’s a complete social media champion and I really think the ‘insider perspective’ he gives all of us into his world is one of the things I credit in my growth as a photographer.

That said, how fricken cool is his new iPhone app / book / social network that just launched today!

Instead of me doing a write up / review……just watch the video and you’ll get the gist of it all.

Got an iPhone? Go download the iPhone app, buy the book, and start uploading photos to the photo community.

★ Joellen (studio session), finally edited

So I finally finished editing the photos from the studio session that Joellen and I had ummmm about 2 months ago. I’m quite happy with the results, particularly considering that it’s been a long while since I’ve done a portrait shoot. Editing wise I went with a bit of a mixed bag, some black and whites, a few really colourful ones, and some straight up contrasty saturated images. Continue reading

You had to know it was only a matter of time till my blog turned into baby photo wonderland. Ok, well maybe it won’t but I needed some sort of intro to go along with these photos of our little boy Travis.
