We worked with the Melbourne & Queensland teams at Smart to put together a series of fashion-inspired images for Australand. Over 4 days we set out to tell an inner city story of romance, elegance, & timeless beauty with an urban feel.
Huge thanks to my producer Kat Cooke, the crew & everyone who worked tirelessly in the hot sun to make these images.
A couple weeks ago I worked on a personal project showcasing people playing sport. I wanted to reenact memorable movements within each sport, isolated on a studio background. With a bit of planning and a truckload of Broncolor lighting we were able to get a number of real athletes on the huge Cyc at studio Thirty Four and go to work.
Everyone that helped out was amazing, and we all worked hard to get authentic sporting movements and had an amazingly fun time doing it.
A VERY big shoutout has to go to Paul from the Brisbane Bandits baseball team, Lachlan from AFL Queensland, and Adventure Racers Mike and Debbie.
Also to my crew, as always main assistant Josh, 2nd and 3rd assistants Katrice and Gina, Erin from ARC Creative, and last but not least everyone at Thirty Four.
Here is the series, we’re calling it: Sports, People
My peeps at national youth fashion retailer Universal Store just dropped this new campaign that I shot, called Find U. The launch was in Melbourne and word has it that the Jungle Giants played live and it absolutely WENT OFF!!
Check out more elements from the shoot as the campaign rolls out.
Woke up to the news this morning that my personal project Old Man MMA had been selected by the Behance Network to be featured on it’s “Photography Served” page.
Curator Oscar Ramos Orozco in his email said: “Hello Kenny, Congratulations! Your project was just featured on the front page of photographyserved.com which showcases the best projects on the Behance Network. Our editorial team features only a small number of projects every day. With many thousands to choose from, we look for work that promotes new thinking in its industry.”
A couple weeks ago I was able to complete a project that was in the pipeline for some time. I had this story in my head with 2 elderly guys set in the brutal sport of MMA or Mixed Martial Arts.
I was discussing it one evening with good friend and art director Mike Fritz and after about a year finally everything came together and we were able to shoot it.
I have to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who was involved, First of all to Mike my co-conspirator and art director, my team of Josh Maguire and his assistants, special effects makeup by Sharon Robbins from ARC, styling by Michelle Michaelson and of course the amazing cast of Hugh, Stewart, Daisy, Tom, and Liam. Last but not least to the amazing venue which is a working MMA gym Phoenix Elite MMA and Conditioning, thank you!
Happy to find that my portrait of James Courtney got the finalist nod in the 2011 Automotive Photography Awards. This is in addition to the finalist spot it got in the 2011 Brisbane Advertising & Design awards. It’s officially a multi acclaimed shot!
The judges comments are in the first few pages, while the shot itself is featured in the annual pages as well.
