QAMA Technology is out!

I’ve been talking about the erotic shoot I did with the fantastic David early last month. Finally I can show you some of the results. QAMA Technology is out now. It’s interesting to see how other artists explore the same theme in such different ways and those different viewpoints should be celebrated. These days with technology giving us social media, too often other people’s opinions are very quickly vilified. With.. Read More

Busy busy busy

A few months before I was made redundant from my job I lost the use of the studio at work for a couple of reasons not related to me, then with the redundancy and a lack of a studio I haven’t really been doing much photography. That all seems poised to change. This morning I was put in touch with Mr Gay Brazil 2016, Rafael Fagundes who happens to be.. Read More

Kieran is coming back

Early in 2009 I did two shoots with the lovely Kieran. He’s a guy who lives down in my home town of Wollongong and a really nice guy. I think back then he had read my blog and offered to model for me. Sadly for Kieran both the shoots we did were in the middle of the night. The first was for a moody shoot in the ocean pool at..

Out of the woodwork

After years of struggling to find guys willing to even shoot full frontal, now that I’m dipping my toe in the world of erotic photography it seems I’ve tapped into something and a bunch of guys willing to go further than I ever anticipated are coming out of the woodwork. In a week I’ll be shooting another series for Issue #4 of QAMA and this will have two guys in.. Read More

The thirst is real

I’m a little behind on my superhero movies. So far Wonder Woman, Thor Ragnarok and even Batman v Superman are all still on my list to see. I’ve started BvS but it feels like a stinking pile of crap so I haven’t made much effort. Last night some friends and I went to see the new Justice League film and after reading some pretty rubbish reviews of it earlier in.. Read More

That was fun

A couple of days ago I posted that I was about to be tied up in elaborate Shibari knots by Kinbaku by Gatsby. Well on the way to the shoot I started to second guess myself thinking I wasn’t in the right shape etc but Sam has a fantastic easy nature and is very good at what he does. When I first walked in he had just finished up a.. Read More

From unexpected places

Creativity is a very subjective thing. There are lots of pieces of art that other people love that I really don’t. Everyone responds to art and photography in different ways. Gay Sydney being the small world that it is, there is a fairly small network of gay photographers and we have all shot many of the same models. One friend is great at finding sexy travellers to photograph while they.. Read More

I beg your pardon?

Not too long ago an acquaintance sent me a text message saying “I’ve just been watching porn and saw you. When did you do that?” Um, I beg your pardon? My mind started racing. Like a lot of people I’ve filmed some home made bits and pieces and I’m probably not as judicious as I should be when it comes to sharing some of the images I’ve taken. Had someone.. Read More

Would you be interested?

In the lead up to my funemployment, my boss and I were discussing ideas about my future career moves. One idea that I had been thinking about was running some photography workshops. It’s only been the last couple of years that I’ve been confidently calling myself a photographer and comfortable saying I know what I’m doing. People may find that strange after two solo gallery exhibitions but I’d rather err.. Read More

The signs were there.

Every now and then the internet throws something at you that gives you a flashback. LONG before I was ready to admit to myself that I was gay, at the age of about 11 or 12 I was at a school mate’s place and we were watching a movie called Paradise with Willie Aames and Phoebe Cates. If you think of a poor man’s version of Blue Lagoon you’re about.. Read More

I remember now

It’s been over nine years since I last worked anywhere else and 11 since I have had to regularly commute on public transport. Now I remember why I enjoyed driving to work every day for 9 years. The last couple of days I have had some temping work at an agency on the other side of the harbour and that means getting two trains. I have no real problem with.. Read More

Limited editions

Have you ever thought about buying a limited edition, hand-signed and numbered print? Now that I have a new website up and running, I’ve added a shop with 12 different images available in three different sizes. When I release an image for sale as an art print, I limit it to five prints. I don’t want too many to be available because for me when someone buys one of my.. Read More

Open to opportunities

With the events of this week the only thing I can do is embrace the opportunities. While I am losing some opportunities, like the free use of the studio at my work, now I pretty much have a clean slate to pick which of my skills I should focus on and pursue. Not only do I have the chance to redefine my career if I want to but I also.. Read More

Good challenges

Last night I had a catch up with David and Adam who I photographed together last December. I’ve been catching up with Adam quite regularly but I haven’t seen David since the shoot. We chat from time to time on Facebook and recently David sent me a message saying that he’d just seen the erotic shoot in QAMA Magazine that I did with Chris. Not only that, he’s really keen..

Misplaced my modesty

When the nearly-celibate version of Brenton went on holiday, I was hoping he might not come back and it would seem that at least for the time being he is still missing. Slutty Brenton is still having some fun and enjoying the change of pace. With my housemate currently out of the country for work the opportunities for sluttiness have increased a little. Not that he’d ever stop me hooking up.. Read More
