luisabrimble I will always find a way to fill my week to shoot a project. I call on friends who can model, cook and all of us just collaborate to produce content. See you on Sunday @mrandmrswhite_ @jacob.leung @tessdesigner @alexcarlyle @_thegraygirls @mrnwhite - I'm coming over armed with props. 2d

luisabrimble I'm big on collaboration. I meet the next person I collaborate with at workshops, @kinfolk table gathering events or from instagram (and then meeting them in real life). I love to organise my own workshops one day but ever since doing my first workshop with @cannellevanille in Seattle I seem to be only workshopping with fellow photographers and/or chefs/cooks and food stylists. It's a lot more fun working with other creatives. The food photography & styling Pracshop with @locallovely and @stephanie_somebody for March & May are now both sold out so the next workshop that is still open (and with only 3 spots left) is with Sneh Roy of @cookrepublic. The workshop will be 90% shooting scenes with food, people and gathering. During the workshop I will go through the thought process in the act of taking the frame from composition to lighting and the type of lens I use to achieve the images I need to create a story. There will be long table lunch prepared by @cookrepublic and she will be helping us prepare the food we need as we create content together. The workshop will be on Friday, 24th April from 10.30am - 3.30pm at The Cook Republic HQ in Hornsby Heights. You can click on my profile link for more information.

luisabrimble Day 1 of @aminaelshafei cookbook shoot for @lanternbooks we shot this! Already loving the colourful props and use of patterns. Have you guys heard of String Haloumi? Neither have I until this shoot. I'm on a hunt and checking out the Middle Eastern shops @aminaelshafei listed in her book. I can't wait to try this recipe. Food & Prop Stylist: @noriroll15.

luisabrimble It takes me a while to realise I've achieved something significant in my career. I don't usually think about it too often because I'll end up with all sorts of emotions. 16th December 2013 I've never replied an email so freakin fast: "Hello Luisa, My name is Evi and I work for Lantern books. We publish illustrated cookbooks and lifestyle books. I came across your great range of work on Instagram and I wonder if you would be interested in coming in to our office here to chat about a possible project happening next year." The next day I was at @lanternbooks @penguinbooksaus office in the meeting with a project team headed by Senior Designer @evi_o. They asked me to bring along any samples of my work. I went into the meeting dragging my then 2.5yo daughter Poppy. I never really thought much about it after the meeting. I thought that with the calibre of the books they publish and the photographers in their books - like some of my favourites - Alan Benson, Sharyn Cairns, Carla Coulson, Samantha Mackie, Petrina Tinslay, Rex Dupain, Chris Chen, Katie Quinn Davis, Prue Ruscoe, Anson Smart - I seriously thought don't have any chance of landing the job. Until the day I signed the contract. Well here it is! Finally @aminaelshafei's (2012 contestant on MasterChef Australia, who finished in the top 12) cookbook I which photographed for @lanternbooks (an imprint of @penguinbooksaus). @juliegibbs what an incredible opportunity you've given me, thank you a thousand times for taking a chance in letting me photograph Amina's cookbook. I've never felt so nervous when I met you for the first time at Amina's house during one of the shoots, but the instant warmth in your hug on our first meeting just sums up who you are as a person. The cookbook is out next week in all major bookstores. More about @lanternbooks in my profile. There's so much more to say about the people who worked behind the scenes I will be sharing more images this week. Food styling by @noriroll15. Design by @evi_o 2w

luisabrimble It rained on @gardenclinicclub's frangipani party. But that's not going to stop us. I've never seen that rich burgundy one before, apparently it's a rare variety. Shooting frangipani story for @gardenclinicclub before the summer is over. 2w

luisabrimble Our rather ugly carport was transformed into some kind of 'makeshift tent' with 35 metres of calico, Persian rugs (thank you for lending us a few @studio_neon), coffee sacks collected from @sacred_grounds_, @timbermilldesigns benches and florals by @helarious. It was a get together with few friends for @erikarax and @willrax's farewell shindig (they are off for few years adventure in the UK & Europe). And to think @nianeve @theassemblyhome and I were worried we didn't have enough paella for everyone! 3w

luisabrimble There are people who buys fashion and there are people who buys art. I've never really been exposed with the latter in my life and hence I was very sceptical that people do buy art - until I've seen it myself, after 2 of 3 of my framed work have sold at this weekend's launch of ART/VERT Exhibition. Being part of this exhibition has really been such an eye opener for me. I've never thought or imagined I will find myself amongst these. It makes me want to create a good body of work, a good project to work on. I have you - @amber_creswell_bell to thank for this, for exposing me in this new territory. If you ever have a chance come and check it out. Go buy art and plants :))). Visit @saint_cloche this week. If you want to know more about ART/VERT Exhibition Georgina Reid of @theplanthunter wrote a story and supported with beautiful photographs by the talented @nik_to for @thedesignfiles - link in profile. 4w

luisabrimble My friend @amber_creswell_bell said 'Plants fixes EVERYTHING.' Lately I found myself apologising to people whenever I invite them to come to my house. I always include a postscript saying "just to let you know that my house is very basic and not interior design worthy so to speak ... but I promise you a good feed." I'd like to rectify this and start collecting indoor plants. I've been really inspired by my trip to Portland last year. The one thing I took from it was their prominent use of indoor plants. Anyway I just blogged a few in a series called 'Portland House Plants' featuring the humble abodes of The Fitzgerald's - @madebysohn @jamesfitzfranz, The @kinfolk office, @xochitl_adriana and @julieepointer's.
