So beautiful

There has always been movement in my life. Growing up my sister and I swam every day, lap after lap. We had tennis lessons. I surfed. I did gymnastics and later on I did a lot of rowing. I’ll always be grateful for that kind of activity as I credit it for my relative good health and decent shape now that I’m in my forties. One thing I’ve never done.. Read More

Cheeky peek!

Fellow photographer and friend Ali Choudry was invited behind the scenes on a fashion shoot recently, for designer and stylist Daniel Moore. The models, photographer and designer are all based in Brisbane so naturally they had great weather. Of course shooting fashion the boys were actually wearing the fashion but from time to time on a fashion shoot, there is a need to get changed. Ali has captured the fun.. 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

For the world

This week’s news has been scary and sad with the world feeling very uncertain with Trump at the helm of the U.S. I’m not going to discuss the very slim chance of the Electoral Colleges blocking his rise to President, nor Michael Moore’s plan to impeach him. I’m not informed enough to discuss it all. He terrifies me and while I would never encourage or endorse an assassination, I genuinely.. Read More

It’s time to get WET!

Dylan Rosser is at the top of the heap when it comes to male figure photographers. It’s a tough business and to be able to make a living from it is a huge achievement. Following on from the success of his Naked Ibiza book, he’s creating another book simply titled WET. It’s already been successfully funded on Kickstarter but you can still order your book by contributing to the project… Read More

Just chilling with mates

Last night’s nude night was a very low key affair. A few guys couldn’t make it in the end so there were only 5 of us but it was great to just sit around and catch up. The conversation was lively and fun and it was the perfect way to wrap up the week. It certainly wasn’t as lively and rowdy as a few of the other nude nights we’ve.. Read More

I’m needing advice

Today I was poking around online and trying to do some research on where to stay for my time in Greece. I am pretty confident I’m going to stay at the Geranium Hotel in Mykonos as it’s central and it has a beautiful clothing optional pool terrace. For my time in Santorini and Naxos though, I hadn’t given any thought to the fact that the islands are quite large and.. Read More

Bucket list vibes

In the past few months I have started following a few Youtubers. Some of them have been fun for a while and others have stopped posting but I was late to the party. One of the guys I watch is Mr Ben Brown who has been a very regular vlogger for a few years now. He’s got just over 600,000 subscribers making my 34 subscribers look incredibly lame and it..

A birthday vlog

A couple of weeks ago, I had another birthday. It was my 43rd. The day itself was a pretty standard work day but one of my colleagues bought me a beautiful bottle or Rosé wine and another baked me some chocolate cupcakes that were delicious! The night was a lot of fun. I had a boozy pub meal with about 10 close friends and lots and lots of laughs. It.. Read More

Finally

There was one thing that was making me worry about 2016. There have been many events this year that have made me worry, Trump in general, climate change, the loss of many entertainment legends and a bunch of other things but my one concern was that we weren’t going to get any decent new Kylie music this year. Sure. It’s very much a first world problem but it’s a real.. Read More

A bit hit and miss

You might have noticed that there hasn’t been a Fitness Challenge update posted this month. Unfortunately the challenge has been abandoned for this round. Damien had withdrawn and Derek couldn’t really train because of a hernia and my work has been so flat out the last few weeks that my training has been very hit and miss. It’s really hard to get out of bed at 5.40 in the morning.. Read More

A long hot summer

We had a discussion today about global warming and how there are ridiculously educated people who for some reason still don’t believe that man-made climate change is real. Well it’s early October and today it was 31 degrees celsius (88F) which is very unusual for this time of year. While I genuinely worry for the future of the planet that we are living on, the idea of a long hot.. Read More

Seems logical to me

It would seem that booking accommodation nine months in advance, to some, is considered overly eager and/or very organised. On Monday I booked my accommodation for the four nights in Berlin. Looking through Mister B&B listings I saw one that seemed suitable so I went ahead and sent a booking request. Travelling alone I quite like the idea of booking a room in someone’s house so that there is someone with local.. Read More

Trying to decide

With my decision to abandon the idea of sailing nude through Greece and focus on Mykonos and Santorini, at this stage I’ll be in Greece by myself. It’s not unusual for me to travel alone, having done that last year and several other times before. I’m doing Iceland with a friend and quite happily doing Germany alone. Germany will be fun to do alone I think, making the acquaintance of.. Read More
