Over the last 4 years we have work with Australian based lighting designer Ilan El  through out different locations around Melbourne photographing his lights.  The location of this photo shoot was a private residence  in Kew that had a few of his lights installed. It was raining and very grey on the day of the photo shoot and to create the feel of natural light  entering through windows artificial light from a high powered strobe (Profoto Pro-B2 1200W) was used.

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.   Photographer: Ivan Lee Hair and Make-up: Nathalie Prince Wardrobe Stylist: Bonnie K.
