This was a very special portrait shoot for me.

I have known Zakk for years. He was just a teenager when he first assisted me, photographing the Launceston Cup a couple of times, many years ago. We have continued to mentor each other as time has gone on. Zakk has encouraged me to write and publish my thoughts and articles on Social Media, and I have given him tips and advice on photography and more recently, we have been brainstorming marketing ideas. I love that our friendship continues despite the big age gap, and I look forward to meeting up with him again soon to discuss a project we are working on together.

What a perfectly matched pair! They are so in love and I had the nicest afternoon as we walked along the Hobart Rivulet, just down from the Cascade Brewery, towards the city. We stopped when I found interesting spots for us to use for backdrops. Everything from confined alleyways to open grassy places. We chatted and laughed as Zakk and Charlotte relaxed and enjoyed themselves, often forgetting about me and my camera pointed in their direction. It is exactly what I love doing. Putting people into the perfect light and letting them be themselves.
