Years ago I was driving around New Farm, a suburb in Brisbane admiring the scenery and realised there's a very eclectic mix of new, wacky and old style houses- a lot of personality! Light bulb moment, I decided to create my first house portrait. I didn't want to take just another photo of a house, I wanted to create something different, a little kooky and cool. The image was received quite well and won a couple of awards, so naturally I decided to keep going!
My second house I noticed just by chance driving home from gym one night. I took a mental snapshot and came back and took some proper photos. The result was a gloomy, run down Queenslander.
Then a few years went by, I started to make some new house portraits but was never happy with the outcome. Until this week, I thought...it's time. Back to New Farm! There wasn't much catching my eye and decided to call it quits. Heading back in the direction of home I noticed a beauty, the cousin of the above Queenslander.
I went to work putting it all together, I wanted it to be similar..but different. I'm really happy with the outcome and breaking my unique house portrait drought!
I've been asked where such houses exist- the house itself does exist but the locations do not..each image is comprised of numerous photos and pieced together. Check out the Slideshow below.
Until the next House Portrait!
