I’m 2012 I was working in Cambodia for Cufa Australia and driving through the countryside we came across these beautiful children. We spent a little time with them and this is my favourite group portrait taken at the time. You can see this print currently on exhibition at the Photo Gallery, 262 Pulteney Street, Adelaide
I’m generally slow at everything and I prefer not to rush my shoots but when I photographed Billy Crystal, it was the fastest shoot I’ve ever done. I took 13 frames and all in less than about 60 seconds. Billy was quiet but lovely and on that 13th frame he said “I think we got it” I had it on the 7th frame ... Thanks Billy and for the selfie too ... You can see this print on exhibition at the Photo Gallery, 262 Pulteney Street, Adelaide until the end of June @asp.thephotogallery @claudioraschellaphotographer @adelaidefescent #billycrystal
I met Carla Lippis in 2015 when I photographed my first Cabaret Festival in Adelaide. She’s an incredible powerhouse of a singer and I love seeing her perform live onstage.

Barry Humphries ... We talked about Italian food and he considered coming to my folks to eat mums cooking but it didn’t happen!

Hans ... There are 31 prints on the wall at The Photo Gallery currently on exhibition till the end of June. It’s too difficult to choose a favourite but it could be this one. I love the colours and to see it as a print is so much more than looking at a screen! Photographed post show at the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Printing by Atkins Pro Lab, Adelaide ... @accordionhans @atkins.pro.lab @asp.thephotogallery @adelaidecabaret @claudioraschellaphotographer
Dalai Lama ... I photographed this wonderful man back in 2007. An hour I’ll never forget. This photograph is part of my exhibition currently on show at The Photo Gallery, 262 Pulteney Street, Adelaide until the end of June.
