Melbourne: Classy...Brisbane Vintage Photography/Truth Seeker Images Travel Photography

Traditional City Circle Tram stops in front of Parliament House ahead of schedule

This week's photos of Melbourne are of the city precinct where we stayed recently on our break. One major thing I noticed about Melbourne as opposed to Brisbane is how the historical and traditional are kept and maintained and are successfully melded with the new and contemporary.  

I don't know  how it's done, but it works magically!  It's like going back in time, but with a modern and vibrant feel.  Melbourne is so multi-faceted in many different ways.

I think also because the weather is so much colder than Brisbane, being fashionable is so much easier to achieve. I don't know what it's like in summer in Melbourne - maybe the fashion is more casual.  But I was impressed at how everyone dressed so beautifully.

Most of all, what I loved about Melbourne was the amazing energy!  I just walked and walked and soaked it all up.  The people, the weather, the amazing trees and buildings...and the music...so many talented local musicians being supported!

So today I'm just bringing you the 'classy' side of Melbourne.  For those of you from Melbourne - do you recognise any of these places (apart from the obvious)?

In my next post, more photos but more street photography and a little more of the artistic and lassez faire.

I hope you enjoy these photos and share this post for others to enjoy!

More of Daniel's Studio Portrait Shoot...Brisbane Portrait Photography/Gold Coast Portrait Photography

Some people have this way.  It's as though there is no camera.  They have this intimacy with the it, revealing who they are without any veil.  It's as though I'm not even there.  And so it was with Daniel.

Being my first real studio portrait shoot I went in with an idea of how I wanted to capture Daniel being himself and using low key photography.  It may have been for a uni assignment, but I still approach every assignment/shoot as though I'm a professional.  Every time I pick up a camera, it's an opportunity to hone my craft.  Not only in photography but in every aspect as a photographer who is in business for themselves.

I was fortunate to have a model who was eager and willing and who exhibits feeling and emotion in a spontaneous and engaging way.  He not only connects with his music, but has the ability to draw his audience into that connection.

So I wanted to share some of my favourite images from our shoot.  These are all from the many images Daniel selected for his own use as a musician, so I hope he finds them of benefit.  I hope you enjoy them too.

* P.S.  I am happy to say that I also got a distinction for my uni assignment - a character portrait.  Thank you Daniel.
