Learning lessons…

It was merely three days ago that I posted about my new job. It’s an exciting time. The stability very much suits my temperament. As much as I love the idea of racing off in a converted van to live on the road and explore Australia taking photos and video, having a steady income and somewhere to be every day makes me feel secure. That’s not to say the van.. Read More

Beach rat

It can sometimes feel really difficult to find a good quality gay movie to watch. There are so many rubbish gay movies out there that make you wonder how on earth they got funding to get made. Beach Rats is not one of those movies. It’s a beautiful if sad movie about a 19 year old from Brooklyn who is trying to deal with the death of his father, fitting.. Read More

I wanna go out, Dancing!

Well, a week or two ago Kylie finally released a lead single, “Dancing” off her upcoming album “Golden”. I’ve preordered the album and wait with baited breath. Today the video for “Dancing” dropped and it may not be as incredible as some of her videos from the past but it certainly contains a lot of elements we have come to expect from Kylie. There are sequins, dancers, a number of.. Read More

Forgotten about this

Sometimes it can feel a bit odd when someone likes a photo in your Instagram that is WAY down in the feed. Sometimes it can remind you of something. A guy commented on a photo of Kieran in the garage that I did years ago. As you might remember I worked with Kieran again recently, the photos to be released next month (I think). Something was said about the video.. Read More

Pure sex, unhinged!

Sydney Festival rolls around each year and is filled with arts, performances and a huge number of events. For the third year in a row I’ve been to see a show called Limbo which has evolved and changed each year that I’ve seen it. This year it’s called Limbo Unhinged. Most of the cast is new apart from the incredible Heather. Her Cheeky smirk belies an amazing talent for sword.. Read More

He’s a living statue!

It has been a few weeks since I put up a digital download for sale so last night I put up “Living Statue” from my second photo shoot with Jorge. The photo shoot was in the studio and saw Jorge covered in clay. Why? Well when you look at Jorge’s body it already looks like it’s carved from stone and having painted him in clay, it’s as firm as stone.. Read More

So frustrating

I’ve just had dinner with a friend who is in the process of trying to get permanent residency. He’s been here for a year and wants to stay. Sadly he’s finding it very difficult and a part of the process has just been denied which means he has to find an alternative way to stay. While I love that Australia is fairly strict with it’s immigration laws I think we.. Read More

The 2017 Playlist… done

For about the last 6 years I’ve created a playlist in my iTunes at the start of the year and throughout the year I add songs that I really like. By the end of the year I end up with almost my soundtrack to the year. It felt like it took a while to get going with 2017’s list but by the end of the year I had 25 songs… Read More

Not impressed

There are certain aspects of sharing a house with the person that owns the house that I would put into the “cons” list, rather than the “pros”. Understandably there are things that feel like “It’s my house, so I’ll do what I like” and at the moment we are kinda in the middle of a big one. My housemate/landlord’s mum arrived a week ago to stay with us for 5.. Read More

Argentinian Beef

Back when I first posted the photo shoot with Jorge it got a great response and the video (below) has been watched over 20,000 times. So I thought I’d put together another digital download for sale on my website from that shoot. Jorge’s body is absolutely ridiculous but in a really, really good way. It doesn’t hurt that he also has a cheeky personality and a twinkle in his eye… Read More

It’s never easy

For the last three nights, my circus school has been hosting their annual end of year show. Thankfully I was performing as part of my class group. Performing is something that I find very challenging. I love the back stage camaraderie and the actual performance part is kinda fun but the pre-show nerves for me get way out of control. On Friday evening I had a little bit of a.. Read More

Still can’t believe it

On Thursday afternoon, shortly before 6pm, Australia legalised Same Sex Marriage. Once the public vote results came in on 15th November it feels like it’s all happened very quickly. There were only four members of Parliament who voted against the bill and a few more than that who abstained. One of those abstainers was our gutless former Prime Minister who instigated the idea of the public vote, Tony Abbott. His.. Read More

Devastated

The Harvey Weinstein scandal has given a lot of sexual assault victims the courage to finally come forward with stories of a huge number of other sexual predators. This morning I heard of another one which has made me very sad. Bruce Weber is a legendary photographer, published in countless high end magazines and largely credited for creating the Abercrombie and Fitch look and in particular their famous quarterly magazine… Read More

They’re at it again

Those lovely boys from the Warwick Rowers are back for 2018, once again doing an amazing job raising money for Sport Allies, a program designed to fight homophobia in sport. The rowers are selling their calendar and the behind the scenes films of the photo shoots for the calendar, as well as other merchandise. They do such a great job on the calendar and the films. Each year the shoots.. Read More

Being debated today

Two weeks ago tomorrow, Australia voted YES to marriage equality. The very next day a bill to legalise same sex marriage was tabled to Australian Parliament. Parliament is focusing on that bill this week and today the amendments to the bill tabled by the conservatives arguing for greater religious freedom, i.e. the ability to discriminate, are being debated. No doubt there are also amendments to the exact wording of the.. Read More
