Last week I caught up with Maggie Collins for a quick headshot/ portrait session. Maggie Collins is a weekend host on Triple J and she needed some shots to accompany her online staff profile on the Triple J website.
The shoot was SUCH a blast with Maggie keen to do pretty much anything. After 20 minutes and a costume change we wrapped with a buttload of great shots. Maggie chose these as her favourites.

A week ago I worked with talented local musician Bec Plath on her EP Cover and press shots. I am still making the final touches on her cover but for now her press shots have been released to the world. Check them out.
Bec was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with. A musician who trusted my concept, using locations that had been on my ‘wishlist’ to shoot at for a while, and a truly easy and beautiful subject to shoot.
I am really excited by the EP Cover too. I will put it up here when it is all released.

So two weeks ago I decided to undertake a series photographing men who had grown a moustache for Movember. I decided I wanted to test out a style of lighting I had only really played with at home, a simple black and white portrait, showing off the mos in a serious, yet hopefully comical way.
I pushed myself a little with this project and set out to also interview all my subjects to find out a bit more about their experiences and reasonings behind participating in Movember. I quite enjoyed playing interviewer as well, the first time I had done this. This is something I’d definitely love to do again (both the interviewing and the portrait series).Tags: 2010, australia, brisbane, elleni toumpas, moustache, movember, november, photographer, photography, photos, portrait

Last month I worked with a friend on his final year QUT project. He had to style a shoot with a concept that got me excited, a movie inspired men’s fashion shoot. The three I got to photograph was the Fight Club, Anchorman and Pulp Fiction inspired shots. These will be appearing in the QUT fashion magazine Frock Paper Scissors which will be out in a month’s time.Tags: anchorman, brisbane, clothes, elleni toumpas, fashion, fight club, frock paper scissors, movie, photographer, photography, photos, portrait, Portraits, pulp fiction, qut

A few weeks ago I photographed headshots and stills for actor Frankie Paul Oatway. Frankie and his crew were shooting action sequences with real guns and required a few stills to use for agencies and the like.
Following are a few photos that came from the shoot.
