Feven’s friend Josh, purchased her a glamour portrait photography session with us as a gift, and today we had the pleasure of meeting them both and photographing Feven.
Feven is originally from Africa but she has lived most of her life in Australia, and it was a real treat for us to be able to photograph her and chat with the couple throughout the session. She bought in some great jewellery and fabrics as she wanted to show her African heritage along with a few glamour images.
We hope that you enjoy the results of this session with Feven. If you would like information on a session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.
Here is a collection of our award winning images for the past few years entered into both the Aipp Australian & Queensland photography awards and the International Loupe awards. The images below have been entered into several different categories including portrait, fashion, newborn, landscape and weddings.
Photography awards can be both very satisfying and very frustrating at the same time. You just never know what the judges are looking for that year. We have sometimes spent hours and hours on an image, only to have it not place at all, and then you might get a quick and easy lucky shot in a session, and bang, it wins an award. It really can be like the perfect storm but we keep on chasing it. I think as photographers, the awards encourage you to keep on aiming higher and higher and it is great to achieve the recognition of your peers when you win an award for your photography. We are still chasing that elusive gold award so keep an eye on this space to see if we eventually get there.
We hope you enjoy them and a big thank you to our wonderful models and clients who have allowed us to use the images.
Dean and I have spent the last week watching a series of photography workshops on lighting and photography techniques by the amazing Felix Kunze and Sue Bryce. It inspired us to purchase some new props, make up some canvas backdrops & look at a new way of lighting our sessions.
We loved the new lighting techniques in the video so much that we decided to use the new technique when we photographed Amie & we love the results. It is so soft and particularly fantastic for women. No more retouching harsh lighting. We have been using natural light along with flash for a lot of our sessions, but this new lighting style involves diffusing flash lighting to emulate soft sunlight. It gives us a lot more control and consistency and gives us that soft natural light look even on the cloudiest of days or at night. Fantastic!
We have photographed Amie 4 times before this and always enjoy a session with her. We hope that you enjoy these images. I think you will be seeing this style a lot more in the future from us.

Another successful Sexy Sunday session with one of our long term fans, Sammie Dee. We had a great shoot with Samantha and her “man” Mitch.
This is what Sammie had to say:
“I’ve been familiar with Dean Agar’s work for almost 3 years.. 3 years of procrastination.. 3 years of “I just need to lose 2kg”.. “Or maybe 5kg”.. “My skin is really gross at the moment, I should just wait” .
Then the Sexy Sunday shoots came up and I had the opportunity to make the jump.. Honestly, I can’t believe I waited so long! Because in that room with Dean & Karen, there’s no such thing as ‘hang-ups’. You forget about them about 5 minutes into your shoot & realise that these people are professionals, they’ve probably seen it all anyway! So let your hair down!
Every facet of that morning was a brilliant experience! From the hair & make-up, to Sammie their gorgeous snowball puppy, to going through the raw photos at the end of the session. I’ll tell you what though.. Picking just 4 shots to be included.. Near impossible! If left to my own devices.. I’d probably STILL be there trying to choose! Luckily though, Dean has a ‘no-muck-around’ way to get down to your favourites! Again, brilliant!
So to Dean & Karen.. Thank you for a wonderful experience & even more wonderful pictures! And to anyone considering taking the plunge but are putting it off for one reason or another.. Don’t be a chicken! You’ll be SO glad you did it!”
