I was once asked what is the definition of a miracle is and my answer to that was, when multiple fine-tuned purposed elements come together and culminates into an event that is extraordinary, that to me is a miracle.
Having come from a engineering background, I appreciate the technicalities of photography however, being a good operator of a camera doesn’t make miracles. It was then I went back to university to study Photography that I found and reinvigorated my love for film and started to incorporate it into my craft.
The film cameras I use are now obsolete, not only are you making history with your most special day, you’re also taking a part of history amongst those who are still fortunate enough to have your moment capture and made with film.
I am truly passionate about film photography in every aspect of which it is involved. It slows me down to appreciate the photographic moments in time and forces me to compose an image with as much intent as possible. Film also captures skin tones true to life and reflects what our eyes see in reality, along with the incredible ability to retain highlights (capturing bright areas) all form a look and feel that I have come to love. The methods of my Wedding Photographer Melbourne are mostly manual, from selecting film stock, changing film to developing and scanning the film and finally turning it into a fine art print, the rawness of the craft really reflects in the images I create.
As a Wedding Photographer Melbourne, Qlix Photography’s has been featured on blogs all over the world, Magnolia Rouge, Style Me Pretty, and Polka Dot Bride are the ones that stand out and been blessed with capturing miracles in New Zealand, Fiji, Bali and United States.
“Film is raw, film is timeless and film is my craft – this is my miracle”
