Cleaning out…

It’s fair to say I’m no minimalist. Sure, I’m not a hoarder and when I moved last year I threw out some stuff I’d been moving from house to house for 20 years. This week I started clearing out some of the digital trash. I have been a member of truenudists.com and trueswingers.com for a few years and I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone directly through.. Read More

Just so beautiful

There is a quote that I have been led to believe was made by Mark Twain but I don’t know for sure. It says “Travel is the antidote to ignorance.” Whoever said it, I completely agree. The excitement is starting to build for my trip to Europe which is just over 4 months away. Today I discovered a new inspiration on Instagram. Inspiration both for photography and travel.

Hilarious

There are a lot of big personalities at my circus school. That’s not meant in a bad way at all, just to say that perhaps it takes a certain boisterous nature to dangle from the roof and defy death. Who knows? There are also some quite shy people who do it as their moment in the spotlight. There are times at class when people might be feeling flat and we.. Read More

Timothy is Draped

So far I’m keeping pace with releasing a download every week. To achieve that this week I went back to my archives to one of my favourite photo shoots. I had taken a more brave step than usual and approached a model that I didn’t think would do a shoot with me. Turns out I was wrong. Within two months Timothy was coming through Sydney on a road trip and.. Read More

Making me happy

This weekend was a busy but very fun weekend. It was one of those weekends that is good for your soul. On Friday night I had a spontaneous night of a few wines and some pizza with some very good friends and a couple of their friends that I’d never met before. It wasn’t a late night but it was great. Yesterday morning started very early for a photo shoot.. Read More

Do I risk it?

As a single man with a love for travel, most of my travel has been done solo. Sometimes that’s fun and sometimes it is less than idea. There have been moments when I’ve been somewhere beautiful having a great time and wishing I could turn to someone, friend or lover, and just grin at the fun times. At other times it can be amazing travelling alone. Feel like being lazy.. Read More

That was rough

Yesterday I was having a conversation over facebook messenger while I was on the train on the way to work with someone I know. They are not someone I know well but over the course of the day I came to realise that they don’t seem to have any/many close friends at all. As I got to work the conversation started to take a dark turn. He was drinking heavily.. Read More

The great Dane

My models usually put a lot more pressure on themselves than I do to achieve a certain level of fitness or lean-ness for a shoot. The beauty of organising a photo shoot with a gay man in Sydney a few weeks before Mardi Gras means they are likely to be in amazing shape. Dane definitely was. As you can see, Dane looks after himself very very nicely. I don’t even.. Read More

Something to work towards

In the past few years, whenever I’ve said I will perform a circus routine, I’ve either chickened out a week or two before or had to pull out due to injury. Performing doesn’t come naturally to me. Before a show I will be so nervous I’ll be outside throwing up. It feels like I sabotage my chances of performing well by not rehearsing enough or training properly. Well today my.. Read More

The power of celebrity

Michael Jackson and R Kelly are having rather spectacular falls from grace this week. Leaving Neverland, the documentary about MJ’s systematic abuse of two young boys, started airing here in Australia last night and footage of R Kelly having a melt down in front of a calm Gayle King has gone viral this week. Both men have had rumours about their behaviour for years but it feels like those years.. Read More

Any ideas?

A man I know and have known for a few years as an acquaintance now is exploring his sexuality. His marriage to his wife isn’t in a good place for whatever reasons and he has told me he no longer puts a label on his sexuality. He asked me if there were any WhatsApp groups for guys like him so he could chat to other gay/bi men about their concerns,.. Read More

So much fun!

Being a fan of Kylie Minogue wasn’t something that was very cool when she first started out way back in 1987. She sold lots of records but not many people admitted to buying them. I’ve been a fan since I was the 13 year old boy in Wollongong who didn’t realise he was gay. I will never have a definitive answer to the question I’ve been asked by dozens of.. Read More

Sand/Stone

When my friend Troy put his hand up to replace a model that had to cancel a while ago it was his first photo shoot. A week later we did his second which we already had planned. This time we had Troy outside in amongst the gritty sand and beautiful sandstone on a little beach about 45 minutes from Sydney. Troy, as you can see is very comfortable naked and.. Read More

It’s a drag

Over the last two days I’ve been doing drag at a work event. I hadn’t done drag in ten years. It is a lot of fun to put on a completely different identity for a while and have some fun but it raised some thoughts in my head. You get a lot of attention in drag and that can be great fun and not bad for the ego but then.. Read More

So smooth

Tomorrow night I’m doing something I haven’t done in about ten years. At a work function I’m doing drag. It’s funny that even though I’m not particularly hung up on being “masculine” in the way a segment of the gay world is, I’m finding that I’m worried how I’ll be perceived in the office afterwards. Regardless of that, I’m actually looking forward to it. Getting up in a costume is.. Read More
