Great inspiration

Behind the scenes with Venfield 8 and Bruin Collinsworth from Olivier Lebourg on Vimeo. After working with Chris on the erotic shoot on the weekend part of me is very keen to explore the realm of erotic art more. Someone that does erotic imagery in a really clever and beautiful way is Venfield8. I have no idea of the real name of Venfield8 but that isn’t imprtant. A lot of.. Read More

Running with horses

Back in June last year I posted about Nick Turner and his beautiful self portraits, lots of the with horses. Nick has now been profiled by art website Twyla exploring the connection he has with horses and his affinity with Iceland. Needless to say when I’m in Iceland in a little over three months I’ll be running around nude but not with the horses like this. Nick’s face is one.. Read More

Challenging myself

A while ago an artist friend of mine asked me if I knew anyone who would be willing to pose for him nude and be filmed for a documentary while doing it. I put my own hand up as well as asking some friends if they’d be interested. Yesterday was my turn. The artist is the very talented Guy James Whitworth who I have blogged about before. He’s collaborating with.. Read More

Now selling!

Today I sent off the first prints from my TRIBE exhibition. It took me a little longer than anticipated to get them out the door but there are now prints on their way to California, England and Queensland, Australia. There haven’t been any more sales yet after the first week but that’s ok. I’m thrilled with the reception that the series got and the fact that people liked it at.. Read More

I’ve made sales!

In a fantastic first week of the Tribe images being out in the world officially, I’ve already made a few sales. Seven prints have been ordered from here in Sydney, from California, the UK and up north in Queensland. After the fairly lacklustre response to my Freedom exhibition in terms of sales, it’s been great to have such a positive start to TRIBE. With no overheads for the exhibition because.. Read More

Tribe is live!

This morning, after a restless night dreaming that I’d missed the start of the exhibition and nerves keeping me awake, I spent a really fun two hours sending the Tribe images out into the world via twitter. A friend insisted that to have a proper exhibition launch I needed champagne. So he and his boyfriend had a champagne breakfast twitter exhibition party for me. There were four of us sitting..

Tribe is coming!

After starting photographing this series in July 2013 and doing the last shoot in October last year, Tribe is ready to happen. As I’ve said previously, the option of printing and framing and doing a traditional gallery exhibition just wasn’t available to me this time around. It’s just too expensive. This forced me to get creative and in just over a month, #brentonparrytribe will be launched as a live twitter.. Read More

Stunningly preserved

Blake Little is a photographer that has caused me to get lots of comments and messages online of late. We’ve never been in touch but because he seems to have a tendency to cover his models in honey, at least for this series called Preservation, everyone thought I should enjoy his work. The name came from the look that the models take on when covered in gallons of honey, like.. Read More

Ross makes a return to Sydney

As is tradition, Ross Watson is having another exhibition in Sydney for Mardi Gras starting this weekend. As is also tradition it will be full of beautiful paintings of gorgeous men including a mate of mine, Nathan and the always sexy Jamie. This time around Ross has also sent a video of the two models talking about their experiences and what it’s like modeling for Ross to be included in.. Read More

Who knows why?

There are some very strange things posted online on a very regular basis. Neil Curtis has done several bodypaint videos but this is more of a conceptual music video using the male nude as a starting point. Instead of bodypaint he’s using mud and movement to tell a story. What that story is I have no idea. If you are going to direct a bonkers performance art music video, why.. Read More

Now showing!

Last night in Melbourne the group exhibition Company of Men opened to large crowds and for at least one of the 21 artists, lots of sales. Sadly that wasn’t me. There are a very diverse range of artists with painting, prints, photography and some 3D artwork on display all featuring male flesh and sexuality as their theme. The lovely and raunchy Rogan Richards did another wild performance in “The Pit”.. Read More

Amazing, simple and beautiful

This video is an antidote to the depressing nature of the last post. I saw this video last week and even though it’s nearly 8 minutes long, it had me mesmerised. Michael Grab is an artist that has developed an amazing skill for balancing rocks in seemingly impossible arrangements that defy gravity. There is no trickery here. No glue, strings or other deception keeps the rocks balanced, just skill and.. Read More

Still one left!

With this year’s Company of Men exhibition coming up in two weeks time, I still have one large print left from last year’s event. These images of Matteo covered in talcum powder have proven to be very popular with people that see them and this final image is one of my favourites. It makes quite an impact in the size that it’s printed which is 60cm wide x 90cm high.. Read More

It’s going to happen soon!

In July 2013 I started shooting in earnest for another photographic series. I had dabbled with outdoor versions of what was to become the TRIBE series but wasn’t happy with how they were looking so I took the shoots back into the studio, kept the props and styling to a minimum and I’m really pleased with how they’ve all turned out. There is still some editing of the photos to.. Read More

One of the best

GIACOMO from Fran├žois Rousseau on Vimeo. With the developments in technology and the world going digital, cameras getting smaller and better, it seems like the whole world is making videos and taking photos. For every one talented image maker, there are dozens and dozens of people trying. Francois Rousseau came to my notice when he did the first really popular Dieux Du Stade calender for 2004. He got the balance.. Read More
