Welcome to the Playground.
First thing to know… I do things differently.
If you’re scratching around for a camera operator who competes on price, I’m not your guy. If you’re ready for a discerning artist to see and truly celebrate your talents, you’re absolutely in the right place.
I’m here to elevate your brand.
This is more than pretty pictures, we’re going to bring your soul to the world. To do that, I create a safe space for your most authentic self to come alive. Through this experience, we will craft assets that set you apart, amplify your message and provide serious ROI.
Last thing to know… I’m like you.
Dedicated to the craft.
Invested in the success of my clients.
And I live for the standing ovation.
HOW IT WORKS
We have a virtual tea:
I’m from outback Australia, so making time to connect comes naturally. Phone or zoom call, this is our chance to feel into things, to listen and be heard… the perfect potion when considering a creative adventure together.
We come to you:
It's pretty simple. Myself and my assistant (Sir Jeffrey) will join you in your favourite, most comfortable environment. This may be at home close to the kids, somewhere far-far away, or at the venue of your next gig. We work with you for 4-8hrs per day across a variety of locations.
The magic we make:
Depending on your project and budget, we’ll spend two days capturing four unique types of content - Stage Magic, Soul Portraits, Creative Heroes and Truth Drops (samples below). We are going to create authentic and captivating content that eloquently captures you (the real you)… because that’s what the world really wants.
This won’t hurt:
After shooting hundreds of speakers, I’ve learned that just because you are a pro on stage, doesn’t mean a photoshoot feels natural. Don’t worry. My job is to evoke the best from you while making the whole thing comfortable, even fun. I promise you're in good hands. All you need to do is show up.
Get the goods:
Once we've wrapped the shoot, Sir Jeffrey and I will meticulously go through all of the photos and choose the best of the best. That usually takes 7-10 business days, at which point I'll load those onto a private gallery for you to view and get excited about. You then choose the images you want. I'll give them a little extra polish and turn your finals around within 7-10 business days.
Stage Magic (8 images):
Your magic moments captured… artfully… finally. This is you at your shining best and I will immortalise it. Ignite your bureau’s appetite, excite future clients and add some wow to your website. Remember in this landscape, if there’s no photos, it didn’t really happen.
Soul Portraits (8 images):
Traditional headshots are designed to make you fit in. Soul Portraits will make sure you stand out. This is your most utilised piece of promo… we will give you potent treasures that you can be truly proud of.
Creative Heroes (8 images):
People don't hire speakers, they hire humans. My Creative Hero images are crafted to highlight the best of you… off-stage, intimate and real. These are a potent mix of human, lifestyle moments and stylised, creative captures…those impactful images that demand attention and set you apart.
Truth Drops (5x videos, 30-90 seconds each):
There is lots of over-produced material that dilute good messages. That's why I invented Truth Drop. They are raw and trustable. No gimmicks, just pure message… captivatingly captured. We'll shoot up to five to help convey exactly why you are the bee’s knees of your industry.
Trusted by the best
Simon Sinek’s organisation Start With Why is the sponsor on my Artist Visa to the USA. I come with his seal of approval and I have created the visual assets for his entire team. I am also the golden lensman for The Growth Faculty, a world leader in business development experiences.
Not my first rodeo
With over 15 years as a professional photographer, I’ve shot hundreds of speakers. I’ve also done my fair share of professional speaking, so I know what assets speakers need, and how to create them.
Dedicated to the art
Passionate, obsessed, call me what you like. I’m a heARTist who won’t settle, and I wouldn’t turn it off… even if I knew how.
How much does it cost?
For the full package shot in one city over two days, the investment is 10k (USD) plus expenses.
Just like you however, every gig is different. For example, some speakers want to shoot Creative Heroes in their hometown and capture Stage Magic from a big gig on the road. Some want certain assets but not others, more of this, less of that… so the investment can range from 5k to 15k.
On our Virtual Tea date, we’ll chat about what makes the most sense for you.
What about expenses?
Expenses are additional to the fee. Generally they include two round-trip flights, 2-3 nights accommodation, uber, meals and incidentals… expect 1k-2k (skip this if you come to us). Once the conversation moves to dates, my Executive Ninja will coordinate the schedule and work diligently to ensure the friendliest of details.
Don't worry, I grew up on a farm Downunder, so there won’t be any diva action.
Simple, if you feel inspired by the playground, let’s schedule a virtual tea.
In the meantime, my team and I are happy to answer any questions you may have.
