This is the cute & fun Racine & Toby. I had the privilage of meeting them.
It’s always so special and pretty nerve wrenching when you’re hired by another photographer to shoot their portrait.
Elke is the lovely owner of Elke Dous Photography and contacted me to take photos of her husband Chris and herself. While I was waiting at the cafe in Fremantle for them to arrive, my stomach was doing flips, my skin was turning red and (as usual when I’m nervous) I was talking very fast and non-stop to my friend who was with me. Then Elke & Chris walked up, we sat down and that was the beginning of one of my most memorable photo sessions I’ve ever had.
There’s nothing I could really say to express how wonderful Elke & Chris were on our portrait shoot together. They are two of the warmest people I have ever met and I will always look back on this shoot and remember how remarkable it was. I sincerely hope this feeling comes through these photos.
A few weeks ago, I put a ‘call out’ on my facebook page, looking for a couple to spend a few hours with me in Fremantle as I was eager to experiment with some new shooting and lighting techniques. The lovely Carly and Mike put their hands up for the portrait shoot and below shows some of the great images we got that day.
If you want to see a few more pics from this shoot, head on over to Carla Atley Photographer on Facebook to flick through the extra images.
Big thank you to Carly & Mike, you guys are awesome!
Over the past several weeks I’ve been in talks with a wonderful Graphic Designer (and friend) who has created the most amazing new logo for me.
Knowing that I adore street photography and cityscapes, he drew this remarkable design and I am thrilled to share it with you today.
Now to begin the excitement of stationery branding!
