(DON’T) LOOK available now!

I asked if you’d buy it and I’m kind of assuming the answer was yes. Since comments still aren’t working I have to make these assumptions. So… if you click here and head to my online store you can buy a 28 page digital download of (DON’T) LOOK featuring the gorgeous Chris Strafford. There are a whole heap of new images that you’ve never seen before. Hopefully enough to satisfy.. Read More

Trying something new

It’s been a long time since I’ve been in front of the camera of another photographer. In my younger and fitter days I did several shoots with other photographers and I really enjoy being a part of the creative process. Today I’m doing it again. I don’t think I’m in the right shape for it, nor do I feel confident about it but I still enjoy the process and seeing.. Read More

Would you buy it?

Looking at the success that Joel Devereux has had with his DVRX sales I’m toying with doing something similar. Selling a pdf download of a series of images from a shoot is a fairly simple proposition. Joel has released many issues now of DVRX and I believe he is doing well with it. I would be aiming for a lower price point if I go ahead with it but I’m.. Read More

Revisiting…

Now that I don’t have free access to the studio at my old work anymore, I’m turning my camera to the outdoors once again. I have a few models lined up to photograph and I’ve been trying to find inspiration for how to shoot them. One of them we have an idea but the weather was against us on Saturday so that shoot was postponed. One of the other guys.. 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

Where’s the middle ground?

In the past I’ve contemplated in running classes on how to take a good photo of your dick. After seeing many many photos from really unflattering angles and even where it’s pointing straight at the camera (hint: it looks like a fleshy coin with a tiny hole) I was wondering how at all these people thought it was their best angle.Some of these guys had much nicer than anticipated members..

Day one!

About ten days ago I was at dinner with a friend who is an avid photographer and we committed to a photography challenge. It’s the first of October and we are going to post a photo every day for October using the hashtag #ShotTober and/or #Photober. The challenge is essentially to find something in your every day that is beautiful. It will force all of us participating to look at.. 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

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..

When brothers collide

As gay men, we seem to have a real thing for brothers. I know I have a brothers/twins fantasy. It’s also a common fetish for a lot of gay men to see guys wrestle or fighting for dominance. In this series for XEX Magazine Matthew and Andrew Billman pose in some very sexy photos where there is a real brotherly fight for dominance. The shots are really cool and while.. Read More

QAMA is out

Just after I left the country for my holiday the first issue of QAMA Magazine was released and it is available to view on Issu, here. My photos of Chris are just some of the images included in the magazine but I’m very proud to see that one of them made the cover. Doing an erotic shoot was new to me as I’ve mentioned before but I’m definitely keen to.. Read More

Three dancers

I finally got around to editing the footage from the Three Dancers shoot. It was a daunting prospect due to the amount of footage we captured on the day. As a results I’ve actually opted for a fairly short video. One of the models also didn’t want too much footage out there of him looking essentially nude which I respect. The video actually feels more cohesive because of the short.. Read More

Not guilty

After sharing the video last night that I created to go along with my photo shoot for QAMA, the guy organising the magazine messaged me. “I have SJW’s (Social Justice Warriors) messaging me that your series is Black Face”. I have used different coloured body paint in various shoots for my tribe series, and for the Shrouded exhibition I painted Jason from the shoulders up in black body paint. It’s.. Read More
