Just a little slice

There is a small stretch of beach several hours north of Sydney, just out of Byron Bay that is causing some controversy. There have been problems with sexual assault in the dunes behind the nude beach and people want to revoke the nudist status of the beach because as we all know non-nudists associate nudism with sexual behaviour. Now there is the undeniable fact that there is usually an area.. Read More

Never thought I’d see it.

I may not have come out til I was 25 but it was obvious to everyone that I wasn’t your usual butch boy. I definitely wasn’t a football loving kinda kid. Being around a big group of straight men still intimidates me. Growing up there were a few things I never thought I’d see in my life but one by one they’ve happened. Apartheid was still in force in South.. Read More

Would you be interested?

In the lead up to my funemployment, my boss and I were discussing ideas about my future career moves. One idea that I had been thinking about was running some photography workshops. It’s only been the last couple of years that I’ve been confidently calling myself a photographer and comfortable saying I know what I’m doing. People may find that strange after two solo gallery exhibitions but I’d rather err.. Read More

I remember now

It’s been over nine years since I last worked anywhere else and 11 since I have had to regularly commute on public transport. Now I remember why I enjoyed driving to work every day for 9 years. The last couple of days I have had some temping work at an agency on the other side of the harbour and that means getting two trains. I have no real problem with.. Read More

Inspiration and class

She may not be everyone’s taste but Pink is one of those people that I really admire. She’s made a very successful career by not playing the Hollywood game by the rules. Her look doesn’t confirm to the pretty girl, nor does her body. Yet she’s hot as hell. Her music is unapologetically honest and auto-biographical to the point where I wonder what her husband thinks at times. Tonight she.. Read More

Open to opportunities

With the events of this week the only thing I can do is embrace the opportunities. While I am losing some opportunities, like the free use of the studio at my work, now I pretty much have a clean slate to pick which of my skills I should focus on and pursue. Not only do I have the chance to redefine my career if I want to but I also.. Read More

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
