Daniel Ash Architects is doing some nice work with their architecture. I went along to shoot this renovation of an apartment in South Melbourne recently and loved its modern and clean look with really beautiful timber floorboards. The view over the Botanical Gardens was pretty spec'y too.
Here's some more shots from the shoot I did at the Builders Arms Hotel in Collingwood the other week. These are some of the images of the public bar downstairs that's been renovated. Even though it's had a real make-over, it's kept some of its 'pub' feel with lots of brown leather couches and black bar stools. And they've added some very cool, Melbourne touches, like the conical flasks that I'm seeing pop up everywhere at the moment. I've got one of these at home, but I use it as a decanter, whereas these guys are using them as water jugs.
I recently spent the afternoon with Emma & Keir at the very cool The Brix The light filled space was a joy to shoot and both Emma & Keir were a pleasure dealing with. I loved the interior of The Brix the three separate areas and the very cool bathrooms.
Shot some portraits and interiors at the Robert Burns Hotel. This hotel is truly Spanish, even Spanish staff. Chef Ivan Saiz and Jose Ortega looked after me with some Iberico ham and espresso in between shots.
Have been shooting some projects for Anthony at Chan Architecture. This is his very cool studio he shares with another architect. Great space with natural light in abundance.Anthony was great to work with, his attention to detail is phenomenal.
This week I went along to photograph a new showroom in Sydney for Jardan Furniture. I've known one of the owners of Jardan, Nick Garnham, for a long time, after travelling together in Europe many eons ago. He's doing great things with Jardan, which is producing really beautiful Scandinavian-style furniture (with personality) that are designed and made in Melbourne. It's awesome to see how well Nick is doing, and I went away with a heap of his stuff on my furniture 'wish-list'. Thanks to Nick Garnham and his team for asking me to come along to the opening of the Jardan - Rosberry Showroom.
My wife and I went to meet a friend at the The Everleigh Melbourne a few weeks ago, and met one of the owners of this very cool little bar on Gertrude Street. Like most of Melbourne's gems, it's tucked out of the way and we had to search for the door to get in. Inside, The Everleigh is very 1920s American speak-easy – dark and brooding with lots of very cool, authentic touches, and really, really delicious cocktails. See the Broadsheet review. I ended up going back one evening before they'd opened to do some interior shots for them.
Enjoy the images.
