  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hey there, I'm Helen from Brisbane, Australia.

    I have a passion for photography, fitness & body building...

    I love experimenting with all different kinds of light - strobes & ambient... I love my 50 inch soft box, it goes everywhere with me... I shoot with a Nikon and prime lenses are mostly always on my camera, I use pocket wizards as triggers... I love shooting outdoors mostly on sunset or sunrise (if I can pull myself out of bed that early ;) ...

    I train at the gym 6 days a week and eat clean, healthy meals ... when I'm not training, I'm photographing other people passionate & dedicated to their fitness or sport...

Jackson (Brisbane Teen Photographer)

I had a chance to photograph my son yesterday… Growing up so fast but now is quite happy to be photographed:)

I love shooting in Urban/Grungy locations when I photograph teens… although some of the locations can be quite hard to access, we managed to find some grunge around our local industrial estate …

Chanel (Brisbane CrossFit Photographer)

I photographed Chanel last weekend at Crossfit Desire – Northgate.

Here’s some interesting facts about Chanel…

41 year old Chanel is married with 3 girls and the owner of Enjoy Jewellery, who has recently launched Fit & Style a Fitness Jewellery Collection.  The shoot was taken where she trains at Crossfit Desire in Brisbane (and features a few of her jewellery pieces)

She has always been active, however after taking up Crossfit 18 months ago has really found her passion.  Passionate about fitness, eating clean and living her best.  She won Gold in her age group in her first individual Crossfit event the Pan Pacs Masters Games on the Gold Coast in Nov 2014.

Her sport now combines with her business as she joins jewellery and fitness together.  “My goal is to help people on all levels of their fitness journey to stay inspired and motivated by having special pieces of jewellery/accessories that are meaningful to their journey”
