Diger Rokwell We Can Ride Tour

A few weeks back I went down to Knox St Bar Sydney to catch Perth artist Diger Rokwell. His performance was part of his We Can Ride Australian  tour.

Diger Rokwell was actually the first artist I ever had a photograph published of. I remember photographing his Earth Head Launch at the Rosemount Hotel in North Perth years ago and having my first published photo in Drum Magazine Perth.

I really enjoyed the new music by Diger. His use of vocoder really gives a psychedelic feel, and the occasional drop of some jungle beats had me back in raver bunny paradise.

He was supported by The Boost Hero Man (Perth) and Captain Earwax (Sydney).

You can get a copy of We Can Ride by Diger Rokwell on his Bandcamp Page.

Leichhardt Blog

I haven’t written a lot on the blog for quite some time. We are now based out of Leichhardt, which is a lot better suited to running a photography business which services a lot of clients in the CBD.

In addition to photography, I have been producing more video work. From a recent commercial, to live band performances and seminars on social media.

Events have long been a core part of my photography business, particularly music events. My work as a newspaper photographer also meant a lot of event photography, so it has been fun covering events here in Sydney.

Being central in Sydney has also allowed me to really push my tinder photo shoots to clients. It’s an idea that has proved popular with guys in Sydney. There was a rush on tinder shoot bookings at the start of summer. The demand died off somewhat towards the end of summer, but I’m now receiving more enquiries for tinder shoots again.

I’ve also recently been getting into drone photography and videography. Sydney has such a picturesque coast line, and has been such a great place to learn to fly a drone. Sydney’s ocean pools are also something unique for me to photograph, as they aren’t something I’m used to as a Perth kid.

For the rest of 2017 I’m keen to push my corporate photography to a wider audience, as well as gain some more music industry clients. I’m also very keen to fill up my video show reel with more of Sydney’s beautiful coast line.

Blues @ Mojos Fremantle

I headed down to Mojos in North Fremantle last night with the crew from Kulcha.

It was blues night, and boy were there some blues played there.

Mojos is up there with one of my favourite venues in WA, and it didn’t disappoint with a night of amazing blues musicians.

On the bill were Anton Thomas, Mitch Becker with Jean Guy De Miere on Harmonica, followed by Lloyd Spiegel with Arun Satgunasingam on percussion.

Here are my photos from the night.
