All Hell Breaks Loose VI Melbourne and Sydney

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to attend the Australian Supernatural conventions All Hell Breaks Loose VI in both Melbourne and Sydney. It promised to be a huge affair – the last time Jensen Ackles or Jared Padalecki had attended a convention in Australia was six years ago. Unfortunately, before the convention Jared had to pull out due to exhaustion, and Hub Productions who run the con were able to bring out the wonderful Timothy Omundson in his stead.

Hub Productions aren’t as photog-friendly as other conventions; you are only able to take photographs for the first five minutes of each panel. So that hampered me in both cities, and then Sydney my seat was in the very last row! So unfortunately I was only able to get a few photographs in Melbourne. But I was happy with the few photos I could manage, and then for something different I decided to post process the majority of the photos in colour. The Plenary, where the Melbourne convention was held, is this huge majestic building with amazing lighting so it gave the photos a really interesting look – a unique mix of the very grand and the very intimate.

The hardest to capture were Matt Cohen and Richard Speight Jr, who always refuse to stay on stage during their panels.

My favourite photo of the day was probably this one of Timothy Omundson, and I went back to my usual default editing style because it just felt so moody and it was too much of an opportunity to pass up!

I had a wonderful time catching up with friends and as always photographing this amazing cast. This is my last Supernatural convention until (hopefully!) Vancouver in August. There is OZ Comic Con here in Melbourne next month though, so I’m hoping to get to that!
