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..

Don’t forget to play

When I was in Naxos, last month I saw a t-shirt for sale that I should have bought but didn’t. It said “Don’t forget to play”. That’s something that as adults we so often do. We get very caught up on what we think we should do and what society will approve of. I really like the idea of just doing something childish every now and then. Yesterday I saw.. Read More

Frustrating times

Australian politicians seem to be in full blown pathetic mode and we are looking down the barrel of a $122 Million waste of time with a Postal Plebiscite to gauge the public opinion on Marriage Equality which is non-compulsory, non-binding and skewed to fail. Yesterday I had a long discussion on Facebook with a friend of a friend who even though she is atheist, she was using the bible to.. Read More

So tempting

In the past few years I’ve been getting restless. There was a project that I wanted to make happen but unfortunately the sponsorship money proved harder to get than anticipated. It would have meant packing my life up and travelling around Australia for a year, exploring, filming, photographing and really living a very different life to the day-to-day regular grind. Youtube has some great videos of people pretty much doing.. Read More

No favours at all…

One of the best things about travelling is meeting people from all over the world. Sitting in airports I heard so many different languages and saw so many different nationalities and it made me smile. It’s one of those things that really gives you perspective on the world. The U.S. does have a reputation for being a bit inward looking and not really being aware of the rest of the.. Read More

A nice change

Before I left on my holiday I had been joking with friends that if I can’t get laid in Berlin then I was going to come back to Sydney and put myself down. Berlin is a fantastic city with a certain reputation for it’s sexual availability. Lots of gay bars have back rooms and it just seems like if you want sex, it’s really simple to find it. On this..

This is what it’s about

This article popped up on my Facebook today as I sit in my gorgeous little studio accommodation in Mykonos two-thirds of the way through my adventure. I hadn’t seen his original video but this one made me smile. A lot. Cynics out there will say he’s done it for youtube fame but I don’t think so. This to me, just seems like something someone would do to have fun and.. Read More

A little inspiration for adventure

There is a quote in the following video that I really liked. “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure some of them are dirt” or something like that. I think that’s very good advice. I do love a good adventure but I also don’t feel the urge to do something quite as big as this adventure. Peter Hochhauser from Austria flew to the U.S. and walked the.. Read More

So bloody close!

In four days time I will be on a plane winging my way to Europe. Sure there will be 36 hours and 40 minutes spent in an airplane seat trying to sleep and sitting around in airports to get there but that’s all part of the adventure. It feels like this holiday is getting very real all of a sudden. When I booked it back in September (who does that??).. 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

(Don’t) Look

A while ago I told you all about the erotic shoot I did with the Escort, Chris. The publication that it was for, QAMA, isn’t out as yet but it’s not long now. “QAMA is a double edged short sort originating in Persia. qama seeks to disseminate the duality of human constructs and paradigms.” The theme for the first issue of QAMA is Blaq and the definition given was “Black..

Near or far?

Timo Wilderness is a Finnish blogger who sadly, like lots of my favourite bloggers seems to have gone a bit quiet. Today however I saw that he’s posted a short video about a project he was asked to  take on by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment in Finland. It is a part of his “Welcome to Finland” series that I’ve featured before on Aussielicious. This time Timo isn’t.. Read More

Tantalisingly close…

Two weeks. That’s it. In two weeks I will finally board a plane to fly a long and probably tedious, uncomfortable journey that will be more than justified by a destination that I’ve been wanting to see for 15 years. In 2002 I was living in London and in the Tube they had billboards advertising a deal on a three-day horse riding tour of Iceland. Unfortunately I couldn’t afford it.. Read More

Can’t beat the classics

It’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly about AussieBum. It’s been nothing to do with them but I just have lost interest in the saturated market of underwear and swimwear with all these other brands producing revolting designs that only their porn star models can fill out. I’m not one of those people that is “into” swimwear and underwear so I’m definitely not their target market. My underwear needs.. Read More

Rethinking…

Winter officially started today and while we may have had 23˚C on Sunday, we haven’t had that this week. We have dropped to about 17 this week and what feels like freezing temperatures overnight. While places who get genuinely cold are prepared for it, every year it seems like Sydneysiders get caught by surprise not believing that it will actually get cold here. Well it does, by Sydney standards. It’s.. Read More
