Sharyn Cairns Photography

November 25, 2009

Sharyn Cairns is an Australian photographer whom I’d like to share with you for a moment because I think that her work is so warm and inviting — she is a real mood magician! I want to sit before every table and lounge in each room.

Raw linen, smokey black, wine, oysters and mood lighting… these views are all very romantic and charming, also some are a bit Parisian don’t you think? I also loved the photograph showing vintage silverware — I almost bought a set like this from the 1800s before I moved but decided to lighten my load and try to find it over here. I’ve decided to resume my search and hunt for it over the winter.

Thank you Emma for highlighting this fab photographer! (images: sharyn cairns)

    Really well composed photographs, with lots of interest and good use of subtle colour. The spiral staircase looks intriguing.

    Beautiful…and a mood magician for sure. All of those deep, rich tones are so inviting and not what I am normally drawn to. I love it….

    I love that first image! I think I’m going to have to figure out how to make a dress like that!

    Absolutely gorgeous – thanks for sharing! I did some further searching and found out she’s had photos in Australian publications like InsideOut – probably why her work looks vaguely familiar.

    Yes, Sharyn’s work is great. Some of those pictures were styled by Glen Proebstel – Sharyn works with a lot with him for Inside Out magazine.
