SHOBANA & DAVID {THE ROBERTSONS} GOT MARRIED ON A DRY LAKE BED, THE ONE, THE ONLY, LAKE GEORGE

It is an honor to be asked to shoot a wedding on the best of days, but when a talented wedding photographer like David asked me to shoot his wedding i was (of course) humbled and felt no pressure at all! (you can see some of his work here, he goes alright). Below is the story of the day Shobana and David married ON the amazing Lake George, just outside of Canberra, Australia. Their story is beautiful and so was this day. I had the privilege of my good friend Kelly Tunney come along and second shoot this one with me and of course (as always) my right hand man James (Thommo) Thomson… What a day, I hope you enjoy.

{I CLOSED MY EYES AND SAW THIS} – SOLO SHOW – CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA

My first solo photographic exhibition was in 2006 at the Huw Davis Gallery (PhotoAccess). This show marked the beginning of my career in fine art photography and because of this, I have a sentimental attachment to this amazing gallery and to the inspiring people who run it.  No matter how much I become invested in the commercial side, my fine art photography will continue to be an important part of my growth as an artist and as a photographer. To accomplish this, I like to push myself to create a new body of work every year and then celebrate it with a gallery show. So with that, I officially invite you to the opening night of my next solo show “I closed my eyes and saw this”. I exhibited this body of work earlier in the year in Melbourne and I am excited to be able to bring it to the gallery where it all started for me.

I closed my eyes and saw this” - New Works by Dan O’Day (that’s me)

16 August to 2 September 2012 {Opening night Thursday 16 August – 6pm sharp}

Huw Davies Gallery, Photoaccess - Corner Manuka Circle and New South Wales Crescent, Griffith ACT (next door to the Manuka Pool)

Hope to see you there for a drink! (and a piece of cheese)

JK Blackwell - Ah… I am going to miss this one – I hope you’ll bring your exhibition to Sydney! x

gee - Something hidden in this image. Pretty scary. Other images on your blog takes attention away from it, kind of distraction but when i look just in to this image alone gives me chills. Very powerful stuff. Reminds me slow-mo scene in the woods from Antichrist the movie. Amazing.
