Paniyiri Greek Festival 2017

The fabulous Queensland Autumn sunshine today made shooting today a little tricky due to the light and the heat, but we survived.  In hindsight, black was probably not the colour to be wearing, but thank goodness for my signature white hat!!!

Thousands of people were at the event that celebrated everything Greek from food, music, dance, culture and even more food.  There were even rides for the kids as well as Channel 7, Radio station 97.3 and some stars from Home and Away.

This year was the 41st year of the festive.  During this time Paniyiri has become Queensland’s “signature celebration of all things Greek and the state’s largest cultural festival as well as the country’s longest running Greek festival”.

A big thank you to Barb Mastoros from Grace Inspired, our talented photographer on the day Leoni from Leoni Bolt Photography, and our favourite model Cara Gilligan.

Don’t forget to checkout our Facebook and Instagram pages in the coming days for more pictures from the shoot.
