Winter in Melbourne is quiet for photography. We rug up, we drink hot chocolate and eat hot jam donuts. We rarely get married, and we don't think about lingerie very often.

This is when I choose to travel to other locations, or to find other creatives and have some fun, no expectations, no hard and fast rules, just enjoy ourselves and try some new things.

Chris, my associate shooter and I wanted to test out some smoke cannons, Visionary Alchemy, a great Special Effect Make Up Artist, some of my VIP's and some ring ins got together at Hawkestowe, and these pictures are the result.

I am always grateful for the people who hear and idea of mine, and run with it, because days like this, that bring the creative side out in me, are the jam on my toast!
