Glenn McGrath at Sydney Airport

Posted in Stories Behind Photos on May 21, 2010 by chrisgleisner

Wednesday night I was out at Sydney International airport photographing an Ahmadiyya cricket team for a new personal project on Blacktown. They’re off to play in a tournament overseas. The airport was practically empty, and Glenn McGrath walks past. Needless to say, the team was pretty excited, and I was there to capture the moment on camera! They took it as a good sign for the tournament ahead.

The Story of Bungaree

Posted in News and Events - Chris Gleisner, Uncategorized on May 21, 2010 by chrisgleisner

Yesterday I photographed the book launch for The Story of Bungaree at The Gunner’s Barracks in Mosman. The book was published by the Harbour Trust. Above is a photo of decendants of both Bungaree (Uncle Bob) and  Governor Macquarie’s sister  (Michelle – and I’m sorry I have forgotten her surname).

The Governor of NSW, Marie Bashir, launched the book, and as usual, gave a very nice speech. I’ve photographed her several times and I’m always impressed with her.

Last night I photographed a gala dinner hosted by the NSW Cancer Council for the Tim Cahill Cancer Fund for Children. A lovely night for a great cause. Some of Tim’s fans would be very jealous that I got to photograph him all night. He seems like a very nice guy. 🙂

Uniting Care_photo_chrisgleisner_oct09_030I’ve been so busy with work, I’ve neglected my new blog. I just thought I’d post an image from a recent shoot for Uniting Care Burnside, for their annual report. The brief was to capture the connection between a father and child, and represent support.

Last night I photographed a new trivia event by Smitten with Style’s Wendy Mak, at the Victoria Room in Darlinghurst.  Great atmosphere and a fun evening (though the low light makes the photography a little more challenging). Find out more info at  Above: Trivia Style Queen winners!
