Steak Tartare at Quoi Dining

Quoi Dining

Chef Joshua Mason of Quoi Dining recently commissioned me to take some photos for his fine dining restaurant.

The menu and wine selection are amazing, definitely check them out, especially if you’re working around Norwest.

Josh currently working on adding a second restaurant to his portfolio.

Cinematography Showreel

Hey guys, I’ve got a new cinematography showreel up on my vimeo. It’s got a bunch of my drone work, as well as some time lapse among other work. I’ve been working on some short films recently too, which I’m really keen to show you, once they are released.

Make sure you click the HD button, and turn your volume up!

 

Haslewood Island, Whitsundays.

Summer is here!

It might be raining in Sydney today, but summer is here (at least it was yesterday!). Summer in Sydney also means storm season!

I’ve been busy filming interviews with travellers around Sydney for booking.com, and recently worked up in the Whitsundays on a US commercial for Travelocity, (the cover image for this post is the sunset after a days filming.)

Also, recently I was interviewed for The Cusp by Kate Bettes about my tinder photo shoots. It was fun to be on the other side of the camera for once.

That’s about all my news for now. Hope you’re all rad!

 

 

August Update

Hi there, it’s been a while between posts. What’s up?

We’ve just renewed the lease for another year, so we’re still here in Leichhardt!

Drone images are popular! People have been purchasing prints from my aerial work, taken with a drone. A few people also took advantage of my recent special on my print store too. It’s always a great feeling knowing that my art is hanging on someones wall and bringing them joy.

I’ve also had a lot of Sydney guys book me in to take professional photos for their online dating profiles this winter, I think more people are realising this is a service!

Recently I travelled to Tamworth, Australia’s country music capital. I was there to visit a friend, but got some great footage and photos during my time there. Follow me on Instagram to get a preview, I’ll have a short video edited soon.

The days are starting to get longer, and I am looking forward to summer coming back!

Octopus Pro TVC

I recently filmed a television commercial (TVC) for a new business management app called OctopusPro.

We filmed the commercial over two days in Sydney. Big thanks to the Director Katherine and my assistant Nicole, great work team!

Head On Photo Festival Leichhardt

I just got back from Head On Photo Festival’s exhibition in Leichhardt, where I got to meet two of the exhibiting photographers.

The first was Remy Gerega, who was exhibiting amazing aerial photos of Shark Bay in Western Australia. Secondly was Luca Altamore, who had documented the West Connex Project in Sydney, and its impact on inner western Sydney communities.

You can view the full listing of photography exhibitions happening as part of Head On Photo Festival here.

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.
