VEILED - exploring the significance throughout time and culture.   Veils first appeared in ancient cultures as a form of protection from evil spirits. Its symbolism has changed over time, from status in society, to sign of innocence and propriety. While some view the veil as a way to divide god and men, biblically the veil is seen as access, unity and intimacy with the Divine. Besides its enduring religious significance, veiling continues to play a role in almost all cultures on the planet to this day. I've worn veils  throughout my life, all 3 of my weddings, religious ceremonies an aplenty of times for fun. Like this shoot with my girls (and self portraits on timer). And the significance of the rose.... that's for another time

High Key Portraits

  In the studio, Sienna's character shone through effortlessly, bringing life to each frame with her genuine smiles and infectious energy. The high-key setup accentuated the play of light on her curls and highlighted the sparkle in her eyes, resulting in a collection of portraits that capture not just her appearance but the essence of who she is – vibrant, captivating, and utterly unique

Studio Portraits

First attempt at studio portraits inside the mArts precinct  Armed with professional equipment, I aim to unravel the personalities hidden within my subjects. The play of light and shadow bring their stories to life, capturing forever just a moment of each individual. In that pulsating environment, my subjects transformed - lens painting a tale of expression

Twiggy inspired shoot

This shoot is inspired by photographer Bert Stern's iconic images of Twiggy in the 1960s. Sahana already embodies the essence of Twiggy with her big bright eyes, blonde hair and innocent age. This was intentionally a practice shoot in my bedroom with natural light from the window, and the heavy eyeliner and mascara that is so synonymous with Twiggy's look

Setting sail on this journey to photography feels like a heartwarming reunion with an old friend – my Canon camera, a cherished gift from my filmmaking father over a decade ago. Life's whirlwind of raising my delicious daughters, Sahana and Dylana, had me trading lenses for lullabies. But now, as I step into my “study era”, a newfound passion for product photography ignites my creativity. Through the lens, I'm not only capturing textures and details; I'm encapsulating memories and stories, a skill I feel was more passed down to me than learned. The classroom has become a haven of inspiration, where peers and I, amplify each other's artistic strengths. Amidst the camaraderie, my styling flair has found its home, intertwining with the talents of those around me. And the teachers – luminaries of expertise and encouragement – sprinkle each lesson with a dash of optimism, turning each click of the shutter into a whisper of possibility.  (written by ai)

Cooking live on TVSN with Peter Mason

  Cooking live on TV with Satvik Foods on TVSN was another thrilling experience, filled with flavourful "here's something I prepared earlier" dishes, nerves, and lots of fun! My sister joined me for the first time for an intro, and we shared our passion for Ayurvedic-inspired cooking with Peter Mason and our live audience. Thank you to everyone who tuned in and supported us on this exciting culinary journey!

Sunshine People

RADA CAMPBELL - MOTHER & ENTREPRENEUR,  SATVIK FOODS.  TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF- WHO YOU ARE, AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am a mother, creative and entrepreneur. I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself. I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki. WHAT SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE AND BRINGS SUNSHINE INTO YOUR LIFE?   Connecting deeply with people, dancing like nobody's watching, swimming in the ocean during a storm, and creating with my hands - whether I’m sewing, drawing, cooking or writing. CREATING IS A BIG PART OF YOUR LIFE, WHEN DID THIS PASSION BEGIN?  Satvik Foods   was created by my wonderful sister, K

Satvik Foods nourishment

  I want to share with you my gratitude and joy for the past five years of working alongside my sister, Kat and her husband Moi, at Satvik Foods. As a family-owned business, Satvik Foods has been a creative outlet for me within this mature company of 13 years. I've had the opportunity to be a part of something special, and to reconnect with my roots and heritage through the rituals of preparing and eating food. I have worked plenty with my family, but each is a unique experience. We've had our fair share of disagreements, but we always come together with a shared vision of creating nourishing, Ayurvedic-inspired dishes that are accessible to everyone. I've learned so much from them, not just about food but about business, marketing, and communication. The learning curve has been steep, but it's been worth it. I've learned the importance of patience and perseverance, and how to adapt to changing market trends and consumer preferences. Most importantly, I've red
