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..

Photographing Christopher

A few months ago at work we had to build a scale model set for a photo shoot and we ended up using some gnarly branches for the set which were sitting in a tub in the store room going to waste. I’d kept them aside because I had an idea for a photo shoot. That photo shoot happened on Wednesday. Christopher is a guy that I’ve known through friends.. Read More

This is how you do edgy and hot

There are some people that you can remember when you first discovered them, on a billboard, a movie or an Tumblr photo that stops you in your tracks. Then there are people like Joeyjojojr (not his real name, obviously) who creep their way into your consciousness and before you know it you are following their Tumblr, their Instagram and if you are lucky, friends on Facebook. And so it is with.. Read More

Jorge and Andrew

The response to the photos of Jorge and his behind the scenes video has been fantastic. It’s no real surprise. We gays do love our sexy muscle boys. It also didn’t hurt that Jorge is cheeky and a really genuinely nice guy as well. Last Monday I photographed him again, alongside the photographer that put us in touch. I was doing a shoot of Andrew and Jorge had some time.. Read More

Photographing Timothy

Today, after another really enjoyable photo shoot with Timothy, I realised that I have been very fortunate that most of my models are easy to work with, down to earth very genuine guys. I had seen Timothy’s Instagram account and left a comment saying that if he was ever in Sydney I’d love to photograph him. He replied straight away saying that he was coming through town on a road..

Take a seat

I’ve had an idea bouncing around in my head for some time now but the direction has shifted slightly. A while ago I was on the hunt for a vintage armchair like one I’d seen on Instagram. The thought was to take it on all of my photo shoots and photograph the model/models in the chair and end up with a stand alone series that has connections to every photo.. Read More

My Man Crush Monday!

Last week I was watching a photography challenge on Canon’s Youtube page and the guest judges were travel photography gurus and brothers, the Jauncey brothers. They have amassed a following of millions on their instagram page @beautifuldestinations and individually have hundreds of thousands of followers for their own accounts. One of the brothers in particular, Jeremy made me feel a tingle in my special places. This is a fine example.. Read More

Laughs and crafts

Yesterday morning I hauled my butt out of bed at 5.30 for a photo shoot with two guys that I’d been chatting to on model mayhem about collaborating. David, the less shy one of the two in the photos, is an artist working on his Masters in Art who is originally from Perth. He does a lot of beautiful photography himself (@davidcharlescollins on Instagram) and he decided he wanted to.. Read More

Another day, another shoot

Tomorrow morning getting up at a stupid hour of the morning for a photo shoot. It’s another shoot with some paper/cardboard props. This time I’m shooting two young beautiful guys with cardboard swords and possibly paper hats almost like they are two young kids that are playing pirates near the water. I’ve somehow managed to get a friend to get up at a that ridiculous hour to come and film.. Read More
