Hello Sydney!

If you’ve been following our travels on social media, you’ve probably already noticed that we’ve moved!

We packed all of our cameras, computers and even the cat, and drove for eight days across Australia from Western Australia.

We’re now all set up in Sydney, and are looking for clients in fashion, commercial and editorial markets.

If you’re in need of a creative professional photographer in Sydney, get in touch today!

Headbutting Nuns

As a photographer, it’s always fun going to iconic locations that have been photographed millions of times. You have to have a think of how to capture a photograph that is personal to you, and even try to get a unique perspective.

There were some great clouds that day over the Sydney Opera house, so I drew them into the frame more and looked up.

Sculpture by the Sea

Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe Beach starts today. Nicole and I headed down this morning to get an early peek. Great pieces this year including a giant “goon bag” (Aussie slang for a wine cask).

Many of this year’s pieces speak of the conservation and protection of our marine environment and coastlines, issues which are becoming more and more important in recent years.

No Shark Cull Cottesloe

Rally Against Shark Culling on Cottesloe Beach

Thousands turned up to Cottesloe Beach yesterday to protest the Barnett Goverment’s plan to kill sharks using baited drum lines off the coast of popular Western Australian beaches.

I was lucky enough to be able to go up in the Channel 9 helicopter to get some aerial photos for The Sunday Times.

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.

The Gyuto Monks of Tibet


It was a case of being in the right place at the right time.

I had just dropped Nicole off at work, and was walking around Fremantle with my camera in hand, when I came across the monks in the Fremantle Town Hall.

They were in the middle of chanting, so I walked in slowly and had a look at the sand mandala that they had been creating.

I noticed there was an upper level of seating, from where I could get a good photo of the mandala from above. I headed up there and got a photo.

When I was walking down the stairs, a lady came up to me and asked “are you our photographer?”. I replied, “I could be, why?” She said that their photographer was unable to make it down, and that they needed photos of one of the monks for the UK Sunday Times Magazine. I happy said that I could take some photos for her.

The monk pictured in the portraits was introduced to me as Yeshe, I assume he is some sort of leader in their group, though I didn’t ask a lot of questions, it was just really nice meeting and photographing someone so at peace.

Here is what I took.

The Rubens

The Rubens @ Capitol

Posting a few music photos from a while back that I had forgotten about.

The Rubens play at Amplifier Capitol in Perth on the 3rd of May 2013.

I really enjoyed their light show, and a decent band live.
