Studio Fashion Photography for Belle et Blanc Bridal Ivan Lee was contacted by the designers at Belle et Blanc wedding boutique to photographed their range of wedding dresses in the studio. As an experienced studio photographer with a large folio of wedding and fashion photography, Ivan knew how to capture white wedding dressing against a simple white background. Photo shoot took place in Ivan’s North Melbourne studio.

Wedding Fashion Editorial Photography on location We are super excited that one of our images were chosen for the front cover of Complete Wedding Melbourne (Universal Magazines). The location for the photo shoot was at Labassa a heritage property with opulent 19th century interiors in Caulfield North. Photography: Ivan Lee & David White Creative Director: Kate Telfer Props Styling: Amanda Mair Hair and Make-up: Alison Larwood Talent: Bridget N (Vivian’s) Photographer’s Assistant: Ali Boin Digital Retoucher: Lisa Maria Editorial Assistant: Steph Dunbar & Georgia Westgarth The Profoto B1 For this cover photo shoot we got the chance to try out the new Profoto B1 battery powered flash head. It’s a great tool for all photographers. 500watts of power, 9 stops range and very fast flash duration. The 2 things that I don’t like about the Profoto B1 compared to our usual battery kits – Profoto Pro-B2 and Elinchrom Ranger is that it’s only 500ws compared to the 1200ws and 1100ws of the Pro-B2 and Ranger. It’s a lot more portable than the battery kits with generator/pack but the heavy packs have been useful on location as it doubles as a sandbag.

Set built for Family Portrait in the Studio Ivan had to come up with an idea for a portrait of a pregnant mother and daughter in a barn yard. The problem was the photo shoot was that it took place mid August with a high probability of cold freezing weather. To over come this, the set was put together the night before in our North Melbourne Photography Studio with found wood, the hay bales were purchased from a local supplier.

Client: Custom Plates / VICRoads Photographer: Ivan Lee Producer: Dee Mason Creative: Celia Dymond@VICRoads Stylist: Sar Ruddenklau Hair and Make-up: Laura Gilham Talent: Polly Graphic Designer: Simon Canty@VICRoads Photographers Assistant: Zarya Volya Studio: Glow Studios, North Melbourne IJ Productions was asked to photograph the latest campaign for Custom Plates and VicRoads. Because of time constraints with final artwork needing to go to print we only photographed the talent and stock was used for the cars. It was critical that lighting and exposure had to be spot on with every photograph as images had to be delivered at the end of the day for design and artwork approval. We photographed 5 different looks with 6 different talent that day. Professional Photography by Australian Advertising Photographer Ivan Lee. Visit our website to view our Portfolio.
