So our first day in the NT is over. Superb weather, a few dingo sightings and the first shoot in the bag..a beautiful sunset over Uluru to cap it all off. Couldn’t ask for better.
Our first foray into 3D (or Stereo) photography, the Top Turf Kombi:

Ok, ok..so it looks like all we’ve been doing lately is shooting puppies (yes, that’s not funny, we know!). We are actually sitting on a few commercial jobs that we can’t publish just yet as they haven’t been released to the world. Two of which we’re very excited about. The first being some absolutely gorgeous portraits of this country’s future – well, one half of it’s future. The other is a humorous promotion that will grow on you and drive the message home. That’s all we’re saying about that – mostly because we’re likely to embarrass ourselves if we keep spouting Dad jokes.
Here’s a burger to satisfy your hunger in the mean time.
The time is fast approaching when we will have to let our little guide dog puppy go. It’s been such a blessing; we’ve been blessed with holes in our back yard, a dislodged flyscreen at a friend’s house, chewed up sponges, gnawed on coffee table and enough hair around the place to make 4 more puppies.
At the same time, Dermott has brought so much joy to our lives and has become a much loved member of the family and LS team – no doubt many of you have met him. It will be a sad day when he goes, however, we will keep an eye on his progress and I’m sure he will do us proud. He’s a clever little bugger!
Some recent pics of the Lightly Salted mascot:
Since April, the Lightly Salted team have been “puppy educators” for the Royal Society for the Blind in Adelaide. We were given an 8 week old puppy named Dermott (Lab x Golden Retriever) and trained to raise him with the intention of training him as a Guide Dog when he’s 13 months old. Essentially we take him everywhere with us (work permitting) so he can grow accustomed to being in public places and around other animals without being too distracted.
We volunteered our photographic services to the RSB as we think giving people with vision impairments a helping hand is flippin’ fantastic! We don’t know where LS would be without vision!! This image is of Dermott and his siblings having a race in the studio!
