Photo Exhibition - A Place of Love and Fear

The Sydney Headon Festival is Sydney’s premier photography event.  

I was really excited to have been accepted into the Sydney HeadOn photography Festival in 2019, its a tough application process. I’ve applied without success in previous years. 

 Its almost surreal to be seeing my body of work taking shape in the form of large prints which will be hanging in the Manly MAF Art Gallery in just a few days, 

I can tell you how hard it has been to select the images to use. I’ve been so fortunate to work with some amazing people, and together we have created work I am really proud of  , so trying to pick which ones to use has been quite a challenge.  But a good one to have. 

My other hard decision was naming the exhibition , I’ve called it In a place of Love and Fear, which I’d be the first to admit sounds a bit wanky. But I do so often find that people who I shoot with in the ocean have a deep love , but also a healthy respect for the ocean. The ocean demands it. 

Ive almost died twice whist shooting in the ocean, so I can definitely vouch for the title. 

I hope you are able to come and show some support for myself and art.

Shooting with Eva Lunia

In February I had the pleasure of shooting the lovely travelling model Eva Lunia , from Spain . ( @eva_lunia) . Eva was wonderful to work with.  A  very natural model, who knew exactly how to pose to create wonderful shapes with her body.  Shooting underwater is very challenging, and she rose to it like she did it every day.  I recommend checking out her instagram account as its got some great content.  

Thank you Eva it was a wonderful experience to work with you. 

Budgy Smugglers Ordinary Rig

One of my favourite events to go to ( and shoot ) is the budgy smugglers Ordinary Rig competition at the Ivy pool bar.   This event was slightly different in that BS brought over the Top 3 contestants from England to compete with the Australia finalists. From the start I was confident that the Aussies would win because I know the guys and they are very strong personalities , so it was bit of a shock that the damn poms took the ashes.  But I have to admit they were a great team and put an a hilarious show. 

Hopefully the images do the even some justice.
