the jezabels

October 16th, 2011


Went and saw the jezabels last night in Coolangatta I decided against shooting it and just took the little x100 instead. For the camera nerds have a look at this. Shot on ISO 1250 – 1/60th @ f2.8 – 100% crop. Keep in mind that about 10+ meters away….

Love it…

October 14th, 2011


“Some Atlanta-based photographer posted a humorous Craigslist ad on Monday highlighting the fact that people often assume that photographers will be happy to do work for free.

I am a photographer and since people are always looking for free shoots I assume that they must also do their job, or provide their services, for free.

I am looking to hire all types of people to do all sorts of jobs for me, as long as I do not have to pay anything. Just think, you will gain more experience, and I will put the word out for you and let everyone know what wonderful work you do. This opportunity will bring you a ton of unpaid work, but everyone will love you. So if you have a job or service you provide, and will do it for free, please let me know, because I am sure I have work for you and will hire you in a second.

Feel free to email me with the service you can provide, when you can start, and please include references.

I look forward to you free service.
Thanks,:)”

Winston McCall

October 13th, 2011


For a while I have really wanted to work on a project that I was in charge of. Sounds weird but I wanted to make something that went to print I could honestly say to myself that I was happy with it. I think I may have kind of done that. Joel Taylor (Unite Clothing Founder) and myself have often talked about doing a feature on Winston McCall and how cool it would be to show the mix of this guys life – he has got it pretty good – lead man in a crazy big band and a sponsored bodyboarder. Could you really ask for more?

Anyway after trying to get everything to come together for while we finally got into gear and nailed a show, waves and an amazing interview (Joel wrote that cause I’m not the best in that department). All this came together last week and went to print in Riptide Bodyboarding Magazine. Even if your not a bodyboarder it’s worth having a read of – really good insight to Winston and how much of a legend he is.

If you want to grab the magazine it should still be on stands or you can get the digital version here

Also! if you want to check out a big bunch of shots that didn’t make the cut for the final piece simply click right…here or find the link on the left hand side menu….

Its online – Finally!

June 24th, 2011




Well after about 6 years I have finally got around to getting my first online store happening.

I have decided to keep it pretty simple for the time and just have 20 of my favorites up there for sale but I will be adding more over time and new ones as they come. In saying this please feel free to email me if you wish to have a different photo or different size printed.

For anyone who hasn’t used a shop like this before it’s pretty easy. Simply choose what size print you want and whether you want it on metallic or gloss then your next step is choose a frame (if you want). Once you have done that all you have to do is press “Add to cart”. Done.

If you are simply after a canvas by itself all you have to do is go the “Framing or Canvas” menu and go all the way down the bottom and click on the “Canvas – 24×16″ then click add to cart. Easy!

I hope you find something you like and if you have any dramas or suggestions please let me know!.

Pumping Waves

January 19th, 2011


Well the last week has been pretty crazy. At one end there was the some of the worst flooding Queensland has ever seen (below) and at the other we have one of the best swells Queensland has seen in years. I was lucky enough to witness and photographer both of them.

Sunday morning saw some of the best waves Kirra has had in the last few years, i’d say some of the best since about 2004. I was lucky enough to get hooked up with a jetski to shoot off which made things alot easier. It seems the shots from this little session have been a little bit of hit, the online gallery on the Surfing Life website has had over 3000 hits which is pretty cool.

One last thing, if you have facebook make sure you add me new page. I have been putting new stuff up every day.

Brisbane Floods

January 13th, 2011


One thing I really hate about natural disasters and myself is the fact that I always seem to be watching all this bad stuff happening on TV and never actually getting out there and documenting it, most the time because it’s on the other side of the country and it’s almost impossible to get into but it always gets to me. So when all of this Brisbane issue started to happen I knew it was time to try and do my bit and try and document the events as it all happened.

So yesterday Michael McQueen and myself got right into the heart of things in Brisbane and did out little bit to help out. We started off sandbagging in the city in between getting some shots then we headed out to Milton, one of the lowest parts of the city, to help the evacuation of peoples homes, many of which belonged to older people who had already left without being able to make and preparations themselves.

I don’t really know what else to say about all of this, it’s weird seeing people going through such a hard time and only being able to do so much. I guess the only thing I can say is that it’s going to take a lot of people a lot of time to get back to normal and I really think people need to get off their arse’s and do something about it instead of wondering what they can do to help. I hope these shots can make at least one person help out.

IF you can’t physically help out try and do your best with a donation to the Flood Appeal. Anyway my Army unit has gone on call so hopefully we can get up there again and help out as much as possible.
