Inspirational talent.

We have all spent time looking for how to do something on youtube. These days you can find instructions for whatever it is you are trying to achieve. Along with that comes a lot of people who think they can teach but probably shouldn’t. I’ve given up on many tutorials because the person presenting is just awful and boring to listen to. Lately I’ve been watching lots and lots and.. Read More

Instalicious – Aquabluemodel

A month or two ago, a friend who lives interstate put me in touch with a friend of his on Instagram. Andrew, aka Aquabluemodel also lives interstate but travels for work quite a bit. My friend thought that we should collaborate on a photo shoot so last time he was up we caught up for a drink to meet, get a vibe of each other and discuss ideas. Andrew has.. Read More

I’m angry… with myself

With performances booked for this weekend, the weekend should have been spent rehearsing and running the routine. Sadly, my nerves kicked into over drive and I worked myself up into such a state over not being able to get through the routine that indeed, even in rehearsal I couldn’t get through it. So rather than perform a rubbish routine and hate myself for it, I’ve pulled out. I’m still very.. Read More

Does the world feel a little crazy?

There are certain things that have happened in my lifetime that are great that I never thought I’d see. The Berlin Wall coming down. The end of Apartheid in South Africa. Marriage Equality and LGBT rights advancing rapidly. That kind of thing. There are other things happening right now that absolutely terrify me. The fact that Trump is even a candidate, let alone the Republican nominee to run the U.S… Read More

Going to be fun!

Sometimes technology is a terrifying thing. With facebook algorithms now following what you’ve searched for online to target advertising to suit you, it gets a bit annoying. I kept getting advertisements for villas in Bali after we’d booked one and been on the holiday. Tonight however, the targeted advertising has come through with the goods for me. I’ve been thinking I want to try slacklining for a while now and.. Read More

A bit of relief

After a heavy, serious post I thought I should lighten things up. Broadway Bares has just happened for 2016 a few days ago and a couple of my friends were lucky enough to be there. I’ve always wanted to see it and one day I will. This is a video of all the highlights of the show. Lots of flesh, campery, sequins and more skin. Sydney would really benefit from.. Read More

It’s not going to be pretty

Unlike the U.S. system where the Supreme Court ultimately decided to legalise gay marriage, here in Australia we don’t need to change the constitution. We just need to tweak the marriage act. Ireland had a public vote in the form of a referendum to allow gay marriage and our current ruling political party have decided to have a Plebiscite. A plebiscite is a non-binding national vote to gauge public opinion… Read More

Could I actually do it?

With a circus performance imminent in my future, last night at class there was talk about the upcoming routines. In the past I’ve floated the idea of a more adult show. The shows at Aerialize are usually full of friends and family and there are teenagers doing routines, kids in the audience and the whole thing is fairly PG. There are quite a few of us that would like to.. Read More

Do I get a say in this?

This week I had a friend request out of the blue on Facebook. Thinking it was for the photo shoot project, I accepted. It turns out it was a guy that thinks he’s seen me on Grindr. He starts flirting and telling me he thinks I’m hot etc which is all very flattering but I look at his photos and his details and he is less than half my age… Read More

Beautiful self portraits

When I find an image I like somewhere I try and figure out who the model and the photographer is. Sometimes they are the same person. This week I came across the image above on Tumblr and very thoughtfully whoever had posted it had posted a caption telling me that it was a self portrait by Nick Turner. That image in particular was attractive because it’s a hot body, nude.. Read More

What’s your Bare Naked Truth?

You can’t hate someone when you know your story. That’s the premise behind #Barenakedtruth, a photography project I have agreed to be a part of. Over four days in July I will be photographing up to 100 nude portraits of members of the LGBTIQ+ community and we are hoping that we will get a very diverse group of people who identify somewhere along that rainbow spectrum. After the tragedy in.. Read More

Gymspiration for the challengers

I’m a bit disappointed that there are only two of us taking part in the Fitness Challenge. I expected at least a couple more of you to take up the challenge. Remember the goal isn’t to look like a Men’s Health cover model. Damien and I are just training to feel better, improve our health and fitness and get back some of that movement that youth took with it when.. Read More

So much anger

The devastating shooting in Orlando overnight has got me all riled up. The fact that in 2016 a mentally unstable man on the FBI watch list can obtain an automatic weapon is absolutely absurd but that’s just one of the things making me angry. Donald Trump’s gloating tweet that he was right about radical Islam is pretty high on my list as well. Someone has compiled a bunch of screenshots.. Read More

Dangerously sensual

Dick Savvy, aka the Naked Barber is also now dabbling in the world of porn as well as offering his nude barber and grooming services. Dick posted a video this week of him giving one of his co-stars a good grooming before they shot some porn. It’s a very sexy video to watch even though neither of them are particularly what I would call “my type”. I’ve always been a.. Read More

It’s the sweet things

Relationships take work and sometimes it’s easy to take a partner for granted, or so I’ve heard. I’ve never been in a relationship long enough to get to that point. This morning a guy I have photographed a couple of times did something very sweet for his boyfriend of several years. There was no explanation of why he was doing what he was doing, just the doing. He posted a.. Read More
