What a week!
I have just spent an unbelievable time in Indonesia for work. That is, if you call attending someone’s wedding (as photographer), hanging out with some of the nicest people you could meet and taking photos of their family, snapping some cool fashion for a magazine and learning about one of the most impressive photography studios I have ever seen – “work”. Sometimes I forget how unreal my job is. My head’s still spinning so I will post more about this trip later, along with some of my favourite shots. Enough boasting, what I really wanted to write about was what was going on back here! No, I’m not talking about the election (who wants to anymore?).
One of the things I missed out on was the opportunity to have lunch with Lord Mayor Campbell Newman at the Brisbane Powerhouse. For a number of years Studio Impressions has been helping the Powerhouse with their publicity by capturing some of the cool events they have on, and letting them use these shots for their promotional material. We think the Powerhouse is an essential part of keeping Brisbane’s art community thriving, and we want to do our bit. Photographers grow if they are surrounded by talent, art, inspiration. This place and the people it brings to our city give me inspiration.
The lunch was to say Thank You to those businesses that sponsor and support the Powerhouse and to unveil their upcoming Program. Penny & Nicola went to represent Studio Impressions & they tell me lunch was great and the program of events for September – December 2010 is outstanding!

This year the Brisbane Powerhouse turned 10. What a year it has been so far. We’ve had a great time photographing some really diverse events. Here are some of our favourites so far….
