An opportunity to re-connect with the Principals and members of the Brisbane based model agency Sabcar , is also an opportunity to see some old photographs.
Most of these shots were taken to produce a major poster promoting all the talent at the Agency at that time – March 1977.
Produced at my studio at the old pink church in Warren Street, Fortitude Valley, it was a major exercise in logistics.
The negatives from this (and all my other commercial photographic output) is now stored at the John Oxley Library within the State Library of Queensland.
Any assistance in putting names to faces would be greatly appreciated.
On a technical note, the majority of portraits in this very large project were shot on the medium format Hasselblad camera system using a 6x6cm black and white negative. Both Kodak and Ilford films were used. There were some shots taken using a Nikon 35mm outfit.
Additionally the bulk of the assignments were taken in the Warren Street Studios with a handful of sessions taken at Albert Park.
