A Night at the Opera Australia for Marie Claire.

 Adrian Cook just finished working on a reportage story for Opera Australia. Jackie Frank, the editor at Marie Claire asked him to document the making of Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Boheme  for an article they are running this month. Cook shot it over a two-month period mostly in Sydney, with the opening night and dress rehearsals shot in Melbourne. He shot  all the set builds, scenery, costume making, wig design, dress rehearsals and costume fittings.He also did a  print campaign for New World Supermarkets  in New Zealand and spent some time down on the NSW / Victoria border shooting landscapes.  See his blog  for more.
