Got to return to my roots, where my photography started, in my latest campaign for Universal Store. Waiting for light instead of lighting , selecting instead of retouching images. Shooting subjects instead of working with talent. Not styled, but style, not well lit but well visited. Swapped studio fees for plane tickets and fuel. Billboards are out now around town. Enjoy
I’ve spent a bit of time in shaping bay’s and have always thought they have cool light.
For those of you who haven’t ever been in one, this is what you’ll see
Anyone that has been on the East coast of Australia will know how much it’s rained lately, weeks and weeks nonestop. I never thought it could rain this much, ever, anywhere. Along with messing with my head, it’s been messing with my business too.
Was scheduled to shoot a profile of actor Felix Kong, who’s been in recent roles in Sea Patrol, alongside Underbelly star Geyton Grantley in new film Full Catch, and in commercials for Subway and Nokia.
The weather just wouldn’t cooperate though, and our deadline was fast approaching. I finally had the idea of just riding the train to stay dry, and seeing what would happen. We packed real light, camera, lenses, Haley Whittle my makeup artist kept watch, and we came home with some cool shots.
Just finished working with Courtney Hancock, an athlete on the Kellogg’s Nutrigrain series. The brief to me called for an editorial type piece for publication to give a bit of insight on who Courtney is.
The story I’m telling is of the transition from Courtney the young beach girl, enjoying herself just like anyone else her age does, to the unbridled drive that makes her a serious contender as an Ironwoman. I think the transition between the lifestyle shots through to the final image of her running on the beach does that.
4 days after this shoot Courtney came runner up in the Coolangatta Gold endurance race.

Hi Everyone, since Vimeo doesn’t work on all devices, here is the same video from the previous post on YouTube
My assistant Josh Maguire shot this cool behind the scenes vid on his 5DMkII as we took the stills for the We Dance we Break We Step shoot with 105.7 Radio Metro’s Respect Music.
