Seems logical to me

It would seem that booking accommodation nine months in advance, to some, is considered overly eager and/or very organised. On Monday I booked my accommodation for the four nights in Berlin. Looking through Mister B&B listings I saw one that seemed suitable so I went ahead and sent a booking request. Travelling alone I quite like the idea of booking a room in someone’s house so that there is someone with local.. Read More

Trying to decide

With my decision to abandon the idea of sailing nude through Greece and focus on Mykonos and Santorini, at this stage I’ll be in Greece by myself. It’s not unusual for me to travel alone, having done that last year and several other times before. I’m doing Iceland with a friend and quite happily doing Germany alone. Germany will be fun to do alone I think, making the acquaintance of.. Read More

Inside The Box

Now that just about every person effectively has a camera in their hand or their pocket every waking moment of their lives in the form of their phone, the world is being flooded with imagery all the time. Some of it stunning, lots of it not. A little while ago I read a statement that said, since the invention of the iphone there are now more photographs taken every day.. Read More

So immensely proud

A couple of months ago I annoyed the hell out of you all by constantly posting about the #barenakedtruth project but I’ve given you a bit of a rest so it’s time. The response to the project has been overwhelmingly positive. Even though having a nude photo of a friend they’ve not seen in that light popping up on Facebook has been a bit of a surprise people have been.. Read More

A Vlog review!

A little while ago an email popped into my inbox from a guy who runs Sextoys247 asking if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their product. It sounded like a laugh so of course I said yes. They sent me a couple of products and I gave them a whirl. I decided a video blog (vlog) was the best way to go. So check out my review of the.. Read More

This looks great

With Burning Man having only recently finished again for another year, when I read all the stories and see all the photos and videos I think back to my two visits to the festival. One of the mottos of Burning Man is “Radical Self Expression” and everyone talks about how there are no rules and it’s so free. There are a few rules of course. That sort of thing keeps.. Read More

Inspiring

I’ve just got home from seeing a performance by a bunch of my friends from the circus school that is on this week as part of the Fringe Festival. The show wasn’t exactly Cirque Du Soleil but it was a bloody good performance especially for a bunch of people who hold down regular jobs and have run themselves into the ground to get it together. There have been a couple.. Read More

Bless you Gus

U.S. Winter Olympian Gus Kenworthy made headlines when he came out a little while back but what keeps my attention is his cheeky smile combined with his adorable tendency to take his clothes off and post the photos to Instagram. Gus first came to everyone’s attention for trying to rescue stray dogs in Sochi at the Winter Olympics then when he came out not that long ago. Since then he’s.. Read More

Better check yourselves

After last night’s post about cancer and a friend losing one of his balls to testicular cancer, I thought it would be appropriate to post this video of the doctors from Embarrassing Bodies instructing a football team through a self examination on tv. I’m not sure I would be that fussed on checking my balls for lumps on national tv but it is a great instructional tool. Let’s face it,.. Read More

Just stop!

This weekend was a had moments that just pissed me off. Nothing that impacted me directly was bad but some people I know went through some shit. A man I didn’t know very well but have a lot of time and respect for lost his battle with a form of cancer after what we thought was a successful treatment last year. He leaves behind a wonderful husband and two children… Read More

Behind the scenes

Yesterday afternoon I put together the behind the scenes footage from my shoot with David last weekend. Each time I do a video I’m learning something which is good. What did I learn this time? The GoPro I had set up ran out of space on the memory card so I learned that I need to be more aware of how much footage can fit on different memory cards. David.. Read More

Iceland is booked!

A couple of weeks ago I booked the flights to Europe and back. Two days ago my friend and I booked the camper van that we will squeeze ourselves into to drive around Iceland for 8 nights. The mate that is coming with me is someone I’ve known for several years, but we don’t see a lot of each other. Being crammed into a camper van on the road for.. Read More

But… WHY?

Today a fellow photographer posted a warning on Facebook about someone who is very routinely stealing other photographer’s photos and using them on image sites as his own. Unfortunately he’s not very smart about it even taking a photo from a Facebook group for Melbourne Photographers and then posting it in the same group asking for comments and feedback. Obviously when you are that level of stupid, you get caught… Read More

It won’t be good.

Today a date was announced for a non-binding Plebiscite on Marriage Equality. Our Prime Minister before he took power said he was against the idea when his predecessor put the plan in place but he has stupidly stuck to all the policies of the man he ousted for being incompetent. The wording of the question has also been announced which will go to the polls on February 11th next year… Read More

Shooting David

This weekend, after unwisely cancelling a photo shoot due to weather on Saturday, I had another shoot on Sunday morning. This time with a young guy I’d met online through another model of mine. David is a guy in his mid twenties who has a real Hollywood leading man, classic look about him. Not only does he have a great face but the body is absolutely beautiful. Those of you.. Read More
