A day in the life of…Southern Grampians Shire

A fifth day of filming and interviews in the Greater Hamilton district called for an early start.

A day in the life…of a rock lobster fisherman

We had some fabulous audio and footage left over from a recent commission from the South Australian Rock Lobster Advisory Council, and I was able to script it into a promotional piece for industry. Fishermen from Port MacDonnell through to Coffin Bay tell the story of their day at sea…filmed and edited by Robert Tremelling.

Counting Sheep – Hamilton, Victoria

I’ve just returned from two days on the road, interviewing for a video project in Victoria’s south-west. Feeling grateful for the opportunity to mix with so many innovative, motivated people loving what they do.

Breathtaking landscape, quaint country towns (if only I had the time to stop at the antique stores and op shops!), and the sweetest creatures.

Hamilton is often called the wool capital of the world…it’s easy to see why.

Best Friends: Pets and their People

Mount Gambier photographer Tanya Ewen is compiling a limited edition book ‘Best Friends: People and their Pets’ celebrating the relationship between animals and humans. She plans to donate all participation fees to Friends of Native Wildlife SE, and enlisted my help to spread the word. We distributed a selection of gorgeous images to local media…

No sign of the Sneaths, as our cows, chooks and sheep aren’t exactly huggable, but I did take advantage of my visit to Tanya’s studio to update my profile shots for my website as the previous ones were six years old, and I’m definitely six years older!

My week – A Freelance Journalist

People often ask me what sort of work I do. Here’s what happened one week in April:

1. Distributed a media release promoting a regional event.

7. Lined up a series of homes and businesses to be photographed by an interstate magazine photographer and stylist visiting the region…

8. And was on standby to cover a court case for a newspaper. (Case fell through, but that’s ok.)

Always loving the variety.

 

 

Copy brief: Park Hyatt Melbourne

The chink of a champagne flute. The flash of a mirror…the sparkle of a diamond. The moment is magical…

Park Hyatt Melbourne wanted a copywriter with a wedding focus who could help to ‘set the scene’ for a glamorous Art Deco-inspired celebration in a national advertising campaign.

A fun job, channeling Gatsby to come up with the perfect words for a perfect venue. You’ll find the ad in my portfolio.
