Mt Buller Trades & Services... World photographer brings visitors home
ON my last trip to Singapore in June (just before moving to Mt Buller for this year’s winter season) I had this wonderful family come to my studio to discuss me photographing them.
After deciding to go ahead with the shoot the mother Wendy (who was pregnant with her third child) asked if I would please return to Singapore before the end of September to photograph them.
After explaining that I was heading to Mt Buller for the season photographing families and exhibiting my work, I suggested they come to the snow for their shoot.
On second breath and I excitedly threw around some ideas of how I could photograph them in the snow and what a golden opportunity to leave a beautiful legacy behind of incredible images in the snow.
I saw the sparkle in Wendy’s eyes and thought to myself…..’I have a feeling they will do it’.
Sure enough Wendy emailed me to say they would love to come to Mt Buller.
They arrived three weeks later. Thankfully it snowed a few days before. Mt Buller was at its best. We discussed ideas and decided that an adventure with the Huskies was what we wanted.
The results speak for themselves.
What a memory, what a legacy.
Well done Wendy.
Like all of my other families I photograph I shot black and white film and all prints will be printed by hand in the dark room creating exhibition quality silver gelatine prints which will last generations to come.
I have photographed more than 1200 families with this method and the results are simply the best quality prints a photographer can produce.
What a beautiful gift this family gave to their children for when they are grown up.
A gift that just keeps giving. If you want to leave a legacy, give a unique gift and or simply catch a moment in time that you will never forget then just do it…..I guarantee you will never have any regrets.
