Branding Photography -Tunes Without Measure Or End – The Bagpiper

Business Branding Photography Session for The Bagpiper

“Let me play you tunes without measure or end.  

Tunes that are born to die without a herald

As a flight of storks rises from a marsh, circles,

and alights on the spot from which it rose.”

A young Gold Coast based musician, Callum Pert, both truly honours and respects the tradition of Scottish bagpiping, while also imbuing his art with a youthful energy that imparts it’s magic to older and younger generations alike.

When his business called for branding photography, the creativity flowed.  There really is nothing quite like the lingering, reverberating music of the bagpiper.  The passion, poise, and centuries old traditional kilt outfit all combine to captivate.

And during our shoot for his website, Callum’s performance certainly captivated every onlooker.

This University student has honed his skill of the pipes over the past 8 years and loves nothing more than to entertain others through the stirring reed instrument. And he also passes his knowledge onto other young people by teaching bagpipes.

Callum seemingly effortlessly displayed this talent during our photo session at the Botanic Gardens.

His command of the bagpipes by the creek on a desperately hot afternoon, drew an eclectic and mesmerised audience – a lovely elderly woman of Scottish origin herself who chatted to Callum and was transported back to her childhood and her mother’s love of bagpipes; and a young boy who planted himself by the creek to absorb the unmistakeable sound of the pipes as he watched a group of ducklings splashing about.  He didn’t leave til we did!

To experience Callum’s command of the bagpipes and the way he translates such an instrument steeped in tradition to the contemporary setting, check out his website – the bagpiper.com.au – and see what he offers.

Whether a ceremony, a party, function, or lessons, Callum’s got talent and enthusiasm in spades.

A Virtuoso in the Making… personal branding session

Personal Branding Session for an Artist

An inspiring young violinist, nature her auditorium, rocks & babbling creek her stage, the magpies her only accompaniment.  Lost in her creativity & expression.  You wouldn’t realise it, but she was in the middle of having a professional photoshoot to capture amazing marketing photographs.

What a remarkable opportunity to capture the beauty of Uno’s spontaneous performance. As if I were a fly on the wall – definitely a case of when the photographer is not director nor guide, but rather a creative permitted to experience such awesome musical talent, as the violinist & her instrument danced on oblivious to either me or my lens.  This was magic!  More than a few passers by were drawn to the music, stopping in their tracks mid power walk – and one even pulled over in their car to enjoy Uno’s talent.   SO MUCH FUN!!!

Marketing Photographs 

This young musician now has marketing photographs to use for her C.V.; orchestra applications; music CD covers and promotions.  Photographs that capture her in her element and convey to her audience all at once her passion, talent, dedication, and vibrance.

“This time I paid close attention to each and every note, to its sound and cadence and meaning, its place in the larger context of the melody. I began by playing carefully, gently, as if each note were a fragile, hesitant breath drawn into silence. As I went on, I let my bow sink ever so slightly into the strings, giving each note a sense of urgency I hadn’t heard before, that I hadn’t seen hiding between all the markings on the staff. The longer notes cried out for a bold, vivid crescendo that would make the room ring, but each time I resisted, allowing the sound to swell ever so slightly before returning it to the place of almost unbearable softness where it had started.”
