I have a lot of fantasy photos in my head. Pictures I dream of making, stemming from various personal motivations. Generally these ideas stay in the realm of fantasy and aren’t actually executed because of unwieldy logistics, budget or other boring life-in-the-real world constraints. For example, the ‘ode-to-Tesla’ image I’ve had rattling around in my brain for a few years now involves, among other things, a Nikola Tesla look-alike, a live pigeon and a room-sized…

Cimarrón – Brisbane Metro Arts Promotional Photography

By Behind-the-Scenes, Promotional PhotographyNo Comments

The Spanish word Cimarrón refers to that which cannot be tamed. The creator of the performance work Cimarrón is Sally Lewry, a theater maker based in Melbourne. She produces pieces that are raw and visceral and describes her work as “engaging with a deep sense of socio-political content and often driven by personal politic and the human condition.” Image Workshop photographer Sharon Blance has a particular flair for the performing arts and was excited to be asked to shoot the promotional photography…

Bar Americano – Editorial photography of an intimate Melbourne bar

By Editorial Photography, Travel & Places2 Comments

Recently we shot some editorial photography for Silverkris, the Singapore Airlines in-flight magazine. The images were for an article about “Secret Melbourne” – focusing on places that aren’t the usual tourist traps, but instead are difficult to stumble across without being told where to find them. One of our favourites from the assignment was Bar Americano.  Despite living in Melbourne, this neat little bar had never registered on my radar – so it was a pleasure to come…

Sequoias and fern trees at The Redwoods, Great Otway National Park, Victoria Australia photography by Sharon Blance of Image Workshop

Exploring the Great Otway National Park in Victoria, Australia.

By Personal Work, Travel & PlacesOne Comment

Drive a few hours south-west of Melbourne and halfway along the Great Ocean Road you’ll enter the Great Otway National Park, or in local Aussie parlance, “The Otways”. It’s a special place at once both wild and serene, with coastline, forests, rolling hills and picturesque lakes for exploring. We recently took the opportunity to do a short camping trip in the Otways with a group of friends. Of course we couldn’t leave the camera at…
