Between a cock and a hard place

In the past I have written a few times lamenting the modesty of the models here in Sydney. In the last year or so I have actually had a few models happy to do full frontal. It’s a nice change and adds  a little flexibility to what can be shot. A model that I have worked with in the past year is up for the challenge of doing something even.. Read More

Behind the scenes with Jorge!

As you all know, last weekend I did another shoot with Argentinian Beefcake Jorge. Yesterday I had a day mostly to myself so I decided I’d edit the video together of all the behind the scenes footage. It’s amazing how quickly you can lost an entire day when you are editing footage. It was so much fun. I’m obviously still learning but having a lot of fun picking up new.. Read More

What’s your reason?

When I first started out doing male nude photography I struggled to find people willing to strip in front of my camera. I had no portfolio to show them and no models to reassure them that I wasn’t some creep. Thankfully a few people took a chance and when others saw those images more and more people have trusted me. As a result I have about 14 years worth of.. Read More

Classic sexiness

After our first shoot months ago with Jorge nude on the beach covered in sand, he and I discussed doing another shoot at some stage. Jorge was keen for a studio shoot and he may have made the mistake of saying something along the lines of “the messier the better.” More fool him. This morning after getting a coffee, Jorge and I, along with a friend Tim who came along.. Read More

Circus sexy

Catching up on my photo editing last weekend I finally got to work on these images of Scott. Scott is an aerial straps performer who I met at my circus school. To do aerial straps you need strength and flexibility and when it’s done well it is beautiful and very impressive to watch. What was also impressive to watch was how at ease Scott was naked in front of the.. Read More

Strangers in Berlin

No, that’s not the official name of my time in Berlin this year but it might unofficially be. Instead it’s the theme of a photography project by Martin Gabriel Pavel and Marek Kučera. One person took a nude portrait of someone else, then handed the camera to that person who photographed someone else, then handed the camera to them. So on and so forth until it circled back around and.. Read More

Lucas in Ropes

When I do a photo shoot, I am usually really excited to come home and start editing straight away. Lately I’ve been so busy on weekends and in the evenings that I haven’t had any time to do editing. Just over a month ago I did a photo shoot that was one of the most demanding shoots both for myself and for the model. Sydney was in the midst of.. Read More

Just don’t

Today I saw something that shocked me. Not in a “where is the justice in the world” level of atrocity but more of a “wow, sit down and shut up buddy” kind of thing. A photographer that I’ve not long been following on Instagram posted a screen shot of an exchange he’d had with a model. The model was essentially asking the photographer to cover at least half of a.. Read More

Love and beauty

It’s no secret that my friend Joel Devereux is a very talented photographer whom I admire a hell of a lot. He’s recently launched his FOODP*RN book and exhibition in Brisbane and being the incredibly hard working guy that he is, he’s constantly working as well as entering competitions. Joel recently entered the MELT portrait prize with the beautiful image above called “Distance”. Joel has described the image as “A.. Read More

Straight and wet

Andrew is a friend of a friend. That friend being the first guy I ever photographed nude, Erik. Andrew and Erik were apparently talking and Andrew who is learning a bit of photography was coming to Sydney and wanted to be involved in a photo shoot with me, whether it be assisting or modelling. Since I didn’t have anything planned to have him assist on, he was thrust into the.. Read More

From dark beginnings

There are a few of the world’s perceived “A-gays” who are doing very nicely on Instagram and seem to live glamorous lives. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen but whatever the case, we rarely hear about people’s beginnings. Levi Foster has 220 thousand followers on Instagram and moves in some cool circles, friends with Kyle Kreiger and Max Emerson from what I can tell. I don’t.. Read More

Behind Timothy’s scenes!

My recent collaboration with Timothy in the studio, trying my hand at dance based photography for the first time was very popular and has resulted in a few sales of “Ascension” the hero image from the shoot. Timothy was great fun to work with and with his performing background in ballet is very comfortable in front of the camera. As usual (lately anyway) I did some filming on the day.. Read More

Supporting artists

A friend of mine yesterday told me about a website called Patreon where artists like myself in various fields create a profile and people can pledge to back you with a certain dollar amount per month or per creation. Looking further into it I decided to create a profile to see if anyone was willing to back me and my work. I’ve never asked for money from readers of this.. Read More

Behind the scenes with Chris.

I’m slowly catching up on video editing from my photo shoots over the past few weeks and yesterday I edited together the footage from my photo shoot with Chris. I’m curious to hear what you all enjoy about these behind the scenes videos and what you don’t. To avoid trouble with YouTube and because Christopher wants to preserve his modesty, as do most of the models, they probably won’t feature.. Read More

A leap of faith

This holiday break for me has been very productive. Not in all the ways that it should have been but this morning I did the last of my four scheduled photo shoots. Last week thought I caught up with Timothy again for our second shoot. The first one I blogged about here. Timothy is a former ballet dancer so we decided we would go into the studio and see what..
