Pittsworth Pulse and Pain

Pittsworth Pulse and Pain

And the name says it all… just completed for Pittsworth District Alliance, The Pittsworth Pulse and Pain Half Marathon promotions.
A great event for this town, people will come from far and wide as various Tri Clubs, Fitness Freaks, once-a-year runners and their families spend the day in Pittsworth. If you know the area, its not flat. Copps Hill will sort the best of them out. I’m always up for a challenge, so I’ll be on a water station with the girls, and also on the end of the long lens of my camera, recording some action.

Amazing Prizes, not only for the fit but for the funny too, with prizes for best dressed. After the event families will be able to relax in the grounds of the Historical Society, with food, drink and award presentations. See you there? I’ll pass you some water…! Have a happy and productive day… Natxx

Lauren Bacall and The Town House

My working week is made up of many things, and some of it is always spent designing advertisements for newspapers, magazines and websites.  I design advertisements for all sorts of businesses, including clothing stores, chemists, real estate, motels, restaurants, photographers, machinery sales and even freight companies. I put alot of thought into each and every one.


Here is an ad for The Town House Restaurant in Goondiwindi. For this ad I wanted to give a film like, double glass effect, with Lauren Bacall styled undertones. Working with supplied images and an open brief, gave me an opportunity to tweak the images to the effect I was after. Being really happy with the result, Lisa and David have an effective, eye catching, attractive ad designed to get results, and I had the opportunity to visit a period of photography that featured the lovely Lauren Bacall.

Till next time. Nat

Lettie the Cat

I’m only a cat,
and I stay in my place…
Up there on your chair,
on your couch or your face!

I’m only a cat,
and I don’t finick much…
I’m happy with cream
and anchovies and such!

I’m only a cat,
and we’ll get along fine…
As long as you know
your place… and I’ll know mine!

The Children’s House of Hope


Recently the Goondiwindi Rotary Club along with the Rotary Club of Surfers Sunrise undertook a project to design and assemble a house for The Children’s House of Hope in Samoa. Members traveled to Samoa and built the house to accommodate 30 children. A wonderful project. To decorate the house on completion, the Goondiwindi Club engaged me to design and supply a canvas of various Australian images. We decided it would travel overseas best if it was rolled up in a tube, then when the Club members arrived in Samoa, they would knock up a frame to stretch it over. So we made it really big and packed it off. According to stories and legends told by the group, it arrived ok and was mounted on a frame then onto the wall of one of the communal rooms.

Im hoping for a photo of it in the House, but haven’t had one sent as yet. Still…so happy to help on a great, life changing project, even if it is in the tiniest most insignificant way. Love your life. Natxx

A day at the Polo

Recently I was assigned to take a few images at the Polo. You see I do weekend photography for the local paper, so that means I get to go places, meet uber nice people, eat great food, take photos, waft around a bit, and get paid for it. Win, Win, Win and Win! So heading out to the Polo was a nice change. Loved the action and thrill of it all. Till next time, Nat
