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

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

A big step

Something I’ve been considering for a while now is taking up some wedding photography. After the privilege of shooting the wedding of my dear friends last year and how well the photos were received it’s been a growing idea in my head of late. With a car that needs replacing and a European adventure to save for it makes financial sense as well as the magic of being part of.. Read More

It’s about setting goals… apparently

Aussielicious has featured the photographic work of Joel Devereux several times and I am lucky enough to now consider him a friend. He is heavily involved in the burlesque scene in Brisbane as well as shooting beautiful men and all sorts of imagery. Joel is currently working on a project called #FOODPORN that is destined to become an exhibition next year. Just a hunch but I’d see it becoming a.. Read More

A chilly start

Being the last three weeks of Autumn here in Australia, maybe it’s not the best time to do an outdoor shoot in the water. My mate Simon and I had been talking about the idea of doing a shoot for ages and we decided to just get it done before Winter arrives and it really is too cold. So this morning I picked him up at 7am and we went.. Read More

Sexy as hell

I’ve been struggling lately with confidence about my photography. I’ve been happy with what I’m producing but I’ve been trying to come up with good creative concepts because I don’t want to produce photos that are just beautiful men. This has come from a couple of conversations at work with my art director, not about my photography but about other things but I’ve been worrying that I have to have.. Read More

Shooting Andrew

Yesterday morning was another weekend early start for a photo shoot. Once again it was a model that I’ve been talking to about a shoot for at least two years. We were shooting in a location I’ve used before and never had any problems with people being there at that hour of the morning. Yesterday, while we still got the shots we wanted there were some options that we just.. Read More

Colour me stunned!

Last night I submitted photos of Laria (above) to Themaleform, a website I’ve had a model on before and struggled to find willing models for. It would seem that not only do I have to find models willing to pose frontal and erect, I have to make sure they are the right colour too. This post is in NO WAY criticising Dylan who runs the site. He’s just making decisions.. Read More

A nice change

On Sunday last weekend I photographed the lovely Laria again. This time we got more bold shooting some nude, erect frontals for It’s a very different photo shoot asking someone to get hard for a camera. There are new levels of diplomacy to be used compared to even a regular nude (non-frontal) shoot. You have someone who is very vulnerable, no matter how confident they are, and they pretty..

Let’s see how we go

A few weeks ago I photographed Laria and this weekend I’m photographing him again. This time I’m shooting him to submit to themaleform. I’ve posted a few times in the past few years about the struggle to find guys willing to pose full frontal here in Sydney. Posing for themaleform is another step up requiring frontal and erect. Thankfully Laria is not shy at all and wants to push it.. Read More

Instalicious – Daniel Robinson

Daniel Robinson is a model and photographer and I believe actor as well. He’s based in New York and is prone to wandering around looking sexy as hell. He also seems to be quite comfortable nude. Bless. If you do a search on tumblr for Daniel Robinson you’ll also see that he’s bordering on unrecognisable without his beard. A lot of Daniel’s images are self portraits. He’s a talented boy… Read More

Another fun shoot

A few weeks ago a guy got in touch on Instagram and offered to model for me. Laria is former U.S. Military and now living with his wife here in Sydney. He’s done a bit of modelling from time to time and loves the process. Of course, looking like he does I jumped at the chance to collaborate with him. He is in amazing shape and is very comfortable in.. Read More

Shooting Stephane & Ben

Two weeks ago, the day after I photographed Tim, I got up at 6am on a Sunday morning to go and do another shoot. Stephane and I had met up to talk about doing a shoot several months earlier but I had procrastinated on finding a location. Eventually I just said let’s do it and I know of a spot that will work. So I picked up Stephane and his.. Read More

Could I dare to try?

Last week on Facebook I shared a link to a set of photos of a hot Viking looking model. We all know that after going to Copenhagen last year I’m a little obsessed with Scandinavian Viking men. Tim that I photographed last week and Mikael whom I photographed in Copenhagen both commented that I should go back over and shoot the two of them as Vikings. Then I made a.. Read More
