Jeremy and Kareena – Manly Wedding Photography

What a joy to be able to photograph Kareena and Jeremy’s wedding. Another Perfect Images Wedding booked by Grant, we headed off to the Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel on the grounds of the International College of Management at Manly. The venue is absolutely stunning with views over Manly Beach. Kareena and Jeremy also held their reception at the college which is a fantastic venue for a reception. Plus as we didn’t need to travel anywhere there was only a minimum of time needed between the ceremony and reception for the photographs. The weather was really threatening all day with intermittent rain. But Grant and i were still able to get the photos we needed between showers. And the bridal party were fabulous. Lots of laughs but still making sure the bride and groom were looked after.

Karen and Tim – Terrigal Wedding Photography

It’s not often I get to walk from home to a wedding. But we did for the lovely Karen and Tim with the whole thing being less than a kilometre from home. Karen got ready at the beautiful Whitehaven luxury house in Wamberal / Terrigal, which was also where the reception was held. A quick walk across the road to Terrigal Beach for the ceremony was  all it took. And as Grant and I well know, the less time spent travelling on your wedding day the more relaxed things are for everybody.

And I’m not afraid to admit I may have shed a tear when Tim formally adopted his son during the ceremony.


As always, enjoy the photos.

cara and nathan – central coast wedding photographers



Grant and I had the great pleasure of photographing Cara and Nathan’s wedding recently for another Perfect Images wedding. Even though Grant booked this one as Cara and Nathan live in Sydney the wedding was on the Central Coast. In fact we started 200 meters from my place. Talk about an easy commute.

The ceremony was awesome. Not only did one of their close friends become a celebrant just to be able to perform the wedding but they also held their wedding at Blue Tongue Stadium (Central Coast Stadium) in Gosford. From there it was off to The Entrance for the photos and then on to The Glass House Function Centre at the Entrance for the reception.

It was an overcast and often rainy day with a real downpour once we arrived at the reception. But Cara and Nathan didn’t flinch at the weather. They were just so happy to be married that nothing else mattered.

Enjoy the photos.





















































Radiation Oncology Institute – Central Coast Commercial Photographer

Commercial photography is always an interesting challenge. The very lovely people at The Radiation Oncology Institute needed some new photos for their website at both their Gosford and Sydney clinics. The difficulties with a shoot like this are pretty common in that the available lighting is a mix of fluorescent and halogen light sources (not so hot when you need great skin tones) and that this is a functioning business so you have to be quick and you have to not get in the way as much as possible. So while it might be preferable for me to bring along the big studio strobes it’s just not practical. Fortunately the Institute walls were fairly neutral so we could use them to effectively increase the light source size and subtly overpower the available light.

For both days we used a couple of small flashes, off camera and fired via infra-red. We didn’t want to use radio triggers in a medical building, just in case. We mixed bouncing the light off neutral coloured walls and using small modifiers to get the “big light” look. All battery powered. So there were no cables to get in the way and the whole set up was small, simple to set up and quick to get out of the way.

The end result was that we were able to do each set-up in a few minutes and take the shot in a few seconds so no staff or patients were adversely impacted. Apart from the crazy guy with the cameras the clinic ran as it always does and we still managed to get the shots we needed without impacting on the patients and their treatment.

Thanks to the staff and management at The radiation Oncology Institute. They were the models as well. It’s not easy being a model when it’s not what you normally do. But they handled it with grace and good humour.

Flash Gordon Photography handles location commercial photography and video anywhere on the Central Coast, Hunter Valley, Newcastle and Sydney at really reasonable rates. If you need any commercial work done feel free to give us a call.





































Jackie and Dan – Central Coast Wedding Photographer

Jackie and Dan had Mustangs! I looove Mustangs. They’re fun and that describes Dan and Jackie perfectly. Super relaxed. Great fun to be around.

Jackie and dan had their wedding at the beautiful Nora Head lighthouse on a stunning day. Actually it was so hot that the guests hid from the heat until just before the ceremony started.The girls got ready at Magenta Shores which is a great location before heading of to the lighthouse for the ceremony and photos. After that we headed to the Budgewoi SLSC for a simple and fun reception with friends and family. Due to the heat we moved the photos to a bit later in the day which put much less stress on the older members of the family.

Jackie and Dan would have never noticed that one of my $8000.00 Leica’s went down during the wedding. There were no shots lost and I switched to my other (identical) body without anybody noticing. One of the things about being a pro is that we always have enough backup gear so that when a camera or lens goes down we can carry on as if nothing happened. No matter who you choose to photograph your wedding please make sure they have backup gear, batteries and cards. You only get one chance to get these images. My camera is currently enjoying a holiday in Germany getting its sensor replaced. I wouldn’t mind a trip to Germany…….

Thanks jackie and Dan, for inviting us to photograph your wedding. We had a great time. And a special thanks to the great folks who look after the Lighthouse for allowing us to shoot on the roof.
