Carolina Ballet's The Nutcracker

Carolina Ballet is currently staging a completely reworked version of The Nutcracker. This is the first time for about 10 years that a full dress rehearsal has been held in order to update the photo portfolio. We took over 2000 images at the dress and are busy working through them now for Carolina Ballet to use in future publicity materials. Due to popular demand here's a few preview shots for viewing over the Christmas holiday.

Aussie Times

Here's an advertisement that I designed for the Australian Shepherd Health & Genetics Institute. It's in the March - April 2011 edition of the 'Aussie Times' and will appear in one or two other journals later in the year. It's good to be able to contribute to a worthy cause!
