Things have been a little busy in the past year. I have moved to Melbourne and also have spent most of my time shooting weddings. In amongst all that I have also been shooting the odd portrait which I will finally have a chance to blog now. One of my first Melbourne based editorial shoots was for Treadlie magazine, a magazine I regularly shot for while still n Brisbane. This shoot was hilarious! The subject was Sarah Ward and her alter-ego Yana Alana. In her days with travelling Circus Oz the whole team relied on their bicycles to get around and explore once they had reach each destination and thus Sarah (and Yana) had been asked to be featured in this issue of Treadlie. My job with this shoot was easy. As soon as my lens came up Yana came to life. As is the case with many editorial shoots, my favourite shots did not make the magazine so I thought I would blog them here.
Thanks also goes to Don from the Westgate Punt Ferry (a service transport bicycle riders across the river) for allowing us to shoot after the last patron had been dropped off.Tags: editorial photographer, elleni toumpas, magazine photographer, melbourne, melbourne photographer, portrait photographer, sarah ward, westgate bridge, westgate punt ferry, yana alana

I photographed Melbourne Record Store Day quite a while ago for Mess and Noise but with moving to Melbourne blogging them has slipped a little low in my to do list. Better late then never here are my photos. I photographed these the first weekend I moved down here so it was great to use this as an excuse to explore areas of Melbourne I hadn’t yet seen. I visited stores in Fitzroy (Polyester Records Fitzroy, Poison City Records), the city (Basement Discs, Missing Link and Polyester Records City store) plus also Woolly Bully in North Melbourne.
