A ghostly reflection #2 (as black and white by request) by

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.

    This one caught my eye! My sister MegJay has a picture on her site called A Ghostly Occurrence similar to this series of photos in which I modeled for her. Very cool shot!

  • Wow… you have a very talented family. Your sister is an amazing artist. I am jealous!! The window casting the reflection in this photo is at the Art Gallery in Melbourne. It is kind of an iconic element of that building… it is what everyone knows the building for… its water window! So if you are ever in Melbourne, check it out!!

    Nice moody portrait. I like both versions but I think the b&w is more powerfull.

  • Thanks very much!
