One and a half weeks until our workshop and only a limited number of tickets remaining. I’m getting very excited - and I promise it’s not just because I get to combine floral photography and champagne consumption! ——— If you follow me, you probably like a bit of floral photography and if you like a bit of floral photography, you might like to come along to the workshop I’m running as part of Petal Posts’ creative workshop series. It is going to be a fab afternoon with something for everyone - whether you are a flower lover or a florist, a photographer or a happy snapper. I’ll be covering some camera and photography basics, walking you through the equipment I use, how to choose and set up your spot to shoot, choosing and arranging the best flowers to capture using natural light. (Ideally you will have a DSLR, but if you don’t, just bring what you have - there will still be a lot to learn!) Petal Post will be providing gorgeous spring flowers and lots of styling advice. There will be delicious platters and punch to enjoy and you will get to take home the flowers you work with as well as a workbook with all the information we covered. Plus you get to hang out with us! Doesn’t that sound like a great afternoon out! And because we want our workshops to be fun and social, you can bring a friend for half price! Just use the code FLORALFRIENDS on booking. You’ll find all the details via the link in the bio. Tickets are available via petalpost.com.au.

Delicate, dreamy blushing brides have been a regular feature in the bouquets I’ve worked on so far this wedding season. Amazing that they are natives (related to protea)! This pretty specimen was from the beautiful @the_bee_edit’s delicious bouquet by @willafloraldesign. Proofs are coming Bianca!!!! 🙏❤️ #bouquetpreservation

How can you beat the curly, shimmery petals of a double tulip!? I’m not sure you can. 😍😍#bouquetpreservation. . __________ I’m looking forward to sharing the process I use to make my floral artworks - like this one - in my workshop at the Gaffa Gallery in Sydney on the 27th of this month! It’s going to be a great afternoon (I’ll have to pace myself on that punch though 😉😉). Hope to see you there! Details in bio.

I can’t tell you how much I love this beautiful artwork (and the words that went with it) and how flattered I am that @alysonthompson chose my flower piece(via @the.lillipillian) for it. Like a salve for the soul. 🙏🙏❤️❤️ #Repost @alysonthompson ・・・ can we speak in flowers it will be easier for me to understand @nayyirah.waheed . 🌸📷: @thisisfloragraphica 🖤

Happily spending Friday night working on the gallery for the gorgeous @the_bee_edit. Nearly there!! This is one of the amazing roses in her divine bouquet by @willafloraldesign. #bouquetpreservation

King of the castle! How delicious is this king protea? One of two (!) in @alanaargentino ’s amazing bouquet by @missylabelle 😍😍 #bouquetpreservation . . #sonyalpha #sonyimages

So, I am a total over-shooter, but when you are attempting to create an artwork from a bouquet you want to capture as much as you can. The first part of my process is shooting all the angles of the full bouquet, then I move on to close ups. This is one angle of @alanaargentino ‘s divine bouquet by @missylabelle, which arrived today from QLD more than 4 full days after the wedding still looking amazing!!!

So I’ve been experimenting with scanography and it’s so much fun! Much lower depth of field than using a camera but I love the soft look that gives. Would love to hear what you all think! . . . . . #botanicalphotography #florography#floralphotography #florals#flowerpreservation #flowerportrait#weddingpresent #wallart #giveart#artgift #botanical #weddinginspiration#botanicart #flowerphotography#floralart #sydneyartist#sydneyphotographer #Floragraphica#Floralgift #blushingbride #scanography #scanographyart

Sending out lots of proof galleries this week and asking my lovely clients to choose their favourite image from their bouquet to turn into an artwork. This was one from a gallery that went out today and, I have to say, it would probably get my vote.
