With all the rain in the area recently, it is always a bit of a concern whether or not I can get my Honda Accord onto the properties, let alone out into the paddocks. In this case we christened a brand new ute, testing it out against the washed out sections of the stubble paddocks to reach the old hayshed. I thought it was a good idea at the time. The resulting portraits made up for the effort. (especially since it was not my ute) Every afternoon there have been spectacular clouds, often threatening rain, but so far, so good. I can see myself stranded some day, in the middle of some country road with my Honda up to the axles in mud.
Rob Heyman specialises in portrait photography for country families, country kids and three generation portraits.
He spends much of his time travelling Australia and the world photographing families and giving seminars.
Many of his previous portrait and wedding clients now live or holiday overseas so Rob tries to time his overseas
trips to update these families' portraits in exotic locations. Recent times have seen him photograph
in Singapore, France, Greece, Venice, New York, Tennessee, Prague, Istanbul, and Romania.
His published book, "Location Lighting for Portrait and Wedding Photographers" is popular around the world
and his second book on "Photographing Groups" has now been released.
