As Ronan Keating says, “LIFE IS A ROLLERCOASTER – JUST GOTTA RIDE IT…” This has been one of the rockiest three weeks of my whole life and, believe you me, I’ve had some rocky times… ACT I: I started late last month – devastated by some shattering news. ACT II: Then last week I was […]

After a long chat on Facebook, Stephanie turns up for her shoot. I told her I was kinda disappointed. She has a sleek figure like a gazelle, skin that glows from within, a big bright grin that lights up her face and the looks of a young Cindy Crawford-ish, complete with mole! And she’s drinking […]

I felt like starting this post with “…BECAUSE…” Why have I embarked on the Organics Project and what’s it all about? Because. – Because I can. – Because I’ve been Photoshopping forever. – Because I want to go back to basics. – Because I want to bring honesty, reality and uh, yes, sexy back. – […]

Now for something completely different! My wife Lillian’s birthday falls around the same time as Christmas so it simultaneously makes buying a gift easy & difficult. She loves photography – and images, but hates my large, heavy, fully loaded cameras – battery grips, batteries, L-series lenses, all of which add up to some kilos. Fuji […]

Yup! We’re back to Josie again… I have this image I really like of Josie and as I’m working on it, I think, I really shouldn’t mess with it – not much anyway. She looks amazing without any photoshop artifice. – It’s just her and her dancers body, head and hands – a pose so […]

I’ve gotten it into my head lately that I want to shoot images that are natural, pure, clean – unadulterated by manipulation, makeup, photoshop and post-production. Why? Well, look at my folio – it’s full of what my wife calls loud, colorful and flamboyant posters. Everyone needs change. I’m in temporary change mode. So I’m […]

So we rock up to a new restaurant, hoping for a pleasant experience but basically we were meeting up with our son for lunch so that was the main thing. We walk in and see a large Día de los Muertos (Mexican festival: day of the dead) picture on the wall and the receptionist in […]

I had procrastinated seriously on shooting the Christmas projections at St. Mary’s Cathedral in central Sydney, and the last day I could do it was a wet, thundery Christmas day! Ah well, so at the urging of my wife Lillian (who also wanted to shoot it) we went. It was not too bad at the […]
