Notes

Early publicity portrait of Australian actress Jackie Weaver, taken in Castlereagh St studio,1969.

David Mist, Sydney based photographer. Moved Studio Ten studio from Clarence Street to Nickson Street, Surry Hills in 1982.

From the late 1970s, David used the Mamiya RB67 camera which was named for the size of the negatives, that is 6x7cm. The Mamiya RB67 camera was easier to hold the quality of the image for mass production due to its larger format (ie film strips increase from 6x6cm square format to 6x7cm portrait or landscape format).

History

Notes

David Mist also photographed Jackie Weaver (and Wendy Hughes) for the Herald newspaper as a job for the Editor, Mary Wilkinson aroudn the same time.
