B2B Magazine issue 116

B2B Magazine issue June 2016 is out

Photography for this issue’s cover story is done by fantastic Canberra photographer Andrew Sikorski (AIPP). Visit his website Life in Canberra and you will see there’s not a photo in it which one can’t learn some compositional lesson from it.

Also, we have two aerial shots from Canberra by Tim our editor which are fantastic and show how our aging Canon 5D Mark II and it’s wide angle L lens are capable of producing sharp and detailed landscapes. Some de-hazing is done using lightroom which saturated colours a bit, albeit in a good way. I think shooting a landscape of Canberra is open to all sort of beautiful post processing interpretations and we just had to choose one of those that fit’s the context and looked best in print:

B2B Magazine April issue is out.

One of the challenges of the April issue of the B2B Magazine was the choice of photography for Cheif Minister’s message. The good news of growing confidence in ACT’s business landscape rightfully demands pictures of a “hustling and bustling” market, something difficult to get in Canberra, not because it’s not energetic and active, but because of its careful urban design that distributes the population and avoids bottlenecks and crowds, except for festivals and celebrations.

So, I’ve decided to take some long-exposure shots of Bunda street and London circuit at night to communicate the feeling of constant flow of humans in the city.

Thanks to B2B publisher and editor Tim Benson for being supportive and patient with me to try my chances on the night shots.

Photos taken by Canon 5D Mark II, 17 – 40 L USM and a vintage Japanese brass tripod of past century bought in an antique shop for 3 dollars because we couldn’t find the ball head mount of our office tripod.

As always, for those that are interested in design, here is the link to the magazine in print form, as well as a selection of my designs that I like the most on this issue.



B2B Magazine issue 113

B2B Magazine issue 113 is out.

B2B Magazine #113 has been printed for some days, but I haven’t found time for an update. This issue’s cover story outlines the background, strategy, and services of RSM, a worldwide provider of audit, tax and consulting services and showcases their new office interior in Canberra designed by DJAS, one of the Canberra’s largest architectural and interior design practices, and built by SHAPE Australia.

In the government-to-business section, ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr explains how Canberra airport’s opening up to international flights will positively affect the Canberra business landscape.

Also in another interesting feature from DDCS Lawyers, Alison Osmand, a senior associate of the firm writes about the rise in the number of Australians diagnosed with dementia and the effect it has on the outcomes of wills and estate planning.
