Ray Of Light
What a pleasure it was working with such a talented crew on this editorial for LaMode. As you will see in the following story it makes my job shooting so much easier when everyone shares the same vision as the photographer and in this case your's truly.
It's been just over a year since I released my book "Surface to Soul" and in that time I have seen this magazine grow from "something" into a "lot" if that is anything to go by. Which is why I am going to cut this blurb short and let you guy's the readers enjoy "Ray Of Light"
Oh and a special thank you to Kerry the owner of Bondi Bather for the swim.

Going Back in Time
There aren't to many city's in the world were you feel like you have been transported back in time. But Prague is one of them.........These pictures were shot about two years ago so in some ways they are fresh because none of them have seen the light of day till now!!!
The first of what will be many swim shoots over the coming month's.....all going well of course. This swim editorial "Moulded" is something of a carrying on theme from my last swim shoot that I did way back in January and that is...... sun, sea, sand and surf.
I couldn't of asked for a more beautiful day. Sun shining a slight cool breeze and to top it all off an amazing team to back me up. Redleaf beach was the location, it's about 45 minutes drive from the Sydney CBD......what made it better was that everything around the beach is untouched and organic. Yep that's right the red ash is from an old volcano, so when the sea reached the dirt it turned it into an earthy red colour, great to photograph and looks even better when you are at the beach.
I always think that the industry is sometimes not very welcoming to new brands or talent which is the reason why I will be using rather newish swim brands in my swim editorials in the coming months. Because without swimwear it wouldn't be a swim story!!

Photography as I have said in the passed is a point of view. So this editorial is a little special so to speak. I have traveled to New York on a number of occasions and loved every minute of it!!! Mostly for work but with these pictures you will see my point of view or should I say, how I see New York through my eyes of my camera.
Never easy editing the finals for any editorial but for this one when you look back on the shots that you took on any given day you sometimes wonder to yourself why? So when it came to chosing these shots it was more of a matter of showing off the character of the city and really my point of view. A collection of images from some of my past trips to NYC.
New York isn't just Manhatten......it's Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx not to mention New Jersey as well. Most of these shots are from in and around Brooklyn and New York with one fashion shoot thrown in for good measure as well. I haven't been back to New York in two years as I have made Sydney my home "well" at least for now anyway. So take some time to engage and enjoy my New York.
