My annual Backstage at CherryRock017 Exhibition is on until Sunday28th May in Melbourne's home of rock n' roll, AC/DC Lane.
I reckon I've shot Airbourne more times than any other band. Here's shots from their final show of the Breakin' Outta Hell tour from Trak Lounge in Melbourne. Oz rock is best.
This is my 5th year of Backstage at CherryRock. Huge thanks to James Young, Cherry Bar and especially Magnify Media for all their support. It's on until Sunday 22nd May, 2016.
I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing John after the Anzac Day march yesterday.
I've been shooting a heap of advertising work lately, now I just have to wait till the work launches. In the mean time I've just shot some new promo work for As A Rival. Top people to work with and big thanks to the best PR person in town, Lou Ridsdale from Lance Rock Publicity.
Dallas Crane's new album, Scoundrels is finally out and it's killer! I've been shooting them write and record this for the past 2 years and after seeing how hard they've worked, it's great to read the rave reviews on it. It's also awesome, well for me anyway, to see my photo of them on the album sleeve. Top stuff, lads.
Last month I shot the Deakin University - Experience a different perspective - Open Day campaign. It was 12 shots over two days. Huge thanks to Mikey and Gareth from The Royals. Mikey's art direction was beyond awesomeness. And a huge thanks to the rest of the awesome team involved. Producer - Cececlia Bedford, Hair & Make Up - Lisa Sherry, Styling - Anthony Jarvis, Assistants - Merlyn Reuter & Liam Cullinane. Talent - Ashlee, Rory, Phoebe & Tre.
The Reclink Community Cup is on this Sunday at Elsternwick Park. All proceeds go to Reclink, a not for profit body that helps underprivileged and disadvantaged people by providing sport and arts programs. Here's a couple of snaps I took to promote the day. A couple are even on the Bakehouse Studios billboards on Punt Rd. Get on down there this Sunday for some rock n' roll, meat pies, footy and a couple of tins.
CherryRock015 returned to AC/DC Lane on Sunday 10th May. I was shooting my backstage portrait series so I didn't get to capture a lot of live shots but here's some I managed to shoot.
In January this year I flew to LA to photograph my close friend and ex-creative partner/copywriter, Julie Poulter and her hero, Lilli Diamond. Being asked to shoot this story for Julie has been the highlight of our 15 year friendship. And meeting Lilli was pretty awesome, too. From memory Lilli gently reached for Julie's hand as soon as I started shooting and for me, that's what really makes this picture. I've never cried on a shoot before but I did get a little misty about 5 shots in. Must have been the air conditioning in the place. You can read their beautiful story in this month's Frankie magazine.
Veri Live magazine have me as their featured photographer in the latest issue. The special art issue comes in unbound sheets, it's pretty kick arse. Thanks to Zo from Veri Live for featuring my work. She has independently published this mag for 4 years now, it's great example of following your passion, taking a risk and going for it. Maximum respect.
A Dairy Australia campaign that I shot recently for Cummins and Partners is out and about. Big thanks to everyone involved. More can be seen under the Commercial menu.
Here's a bunch of pics (44 to be exact) from the two mammoth days of Soundwave 2015. Shot for The Music.
I headed down to Footscray (my place of birth) on Saturday for Laneway Festival.
Hi there, welcome to my new website. Thanks for having a look around. I've got a couple of new menus, most importantly the Commercial menu where you will find all my advertising work. I'll be adding a shop menu in the near future where most of my pics will be available as awesome prints.
