Sydney Mardi Gras Parade 2017

  The Mardi Gras Parade The gay and lesbian community hosted it’s 39th Mardi Gras parade again last night. Despite the inclement weather, it again drew thousands of spectators who lined Sydney’s Oxford and Flinders Streets to watch the celebrations. Originally a march of protest and liberation, the Mardi Gras has been renown for the…

New years day 2017: Sunrise over Bronte beach

Bronte beach and the first sunrise for 2017. After doing a quick edit and blog post of last night’s new years fireworks, I managed to get to bed at 3.30am. My alarm went off at 4.50am – a full hour and 20 minutes later 😦 . Grumble aside, there’s nothing quite like being able to…

Adam + Eve: Baby on board 2

Nineteen months ago, I had the privilege of shooting Adam and Eve as they were expecting their first child, Olivier. Well, in the last couple of weeks, not only have we already had another outdoor maternity shoot, but Eve thought it would be great to prepare another ‘before-and-after’ shot too. I won’t be sharing the images from…

Sculpture by the Sea 2016

Sculpture by the Sea: Tamarama to Bondi Sculpture by the Sea has returned this year to line the coast walk between Tamarama and Bondi beach. This year my youngest son was keen to come down and shoot some pictures too. So, with alarm set at 4.58am and everything organised the night before, we jumped in the…

Melbourne: Central Place, Graffiti Laneway and a street portrait

Melbourne CBD Melbourne is an awesome city. Easy to walk around, with great food, coffee, bars and vibes. I was down there again recently for a work conference and as much as I had hoped to have some time to wander, there was precious little opportunity. Pretty much all of the shots in this post…

Vivid Light Festival: Sydney Opera House

Well, it’s that time of year again and Sydney is once again playing host the Vivid Light Festival. The photo’s I’ll share tonight will only focus on the Opera House as I didn’t head down there until 10.20pm (and the lights go off at 11pm!). Hopefully, I will make it out a few more times over the…

Bare Island, Sydney, Australia

Bare Island, La Perouse. Ever since I saw the movie Mission Impossible II (that’s the particularly crap one, IMHO), I had made a mental note of visiting Bare Island. It’s about a 40 minute, traffic riddled, cross-town drive from my place but that’s no excuse for taking so long (actually, years) to finally venture out there….

Sydney Mardi Gras Parade 2016

  Mardi Gras Parade. It was a perfect last night for Sydney’s Mardi Gras parade – warm weather combined with flash, trash, glamour, politics, diversity, acceptance and love. It was a far cry from the original march in 1978 when a small group of gays, lesbians and their supporters first walked in solidarity down Oxford street while…

New years day sunrise at Bronte beach, Sydney, Australia

New Years Day Sunrise Well, after an hour and ten minutes of sleep I managed to get down to Bronte Beach to see the rising sun usher in a new year. It was a glorious, kind of ‘goldilocks’ morning – not-too-hot, not-too-cold, just right. Hope you’re having a lovely day in your neck of the…

Sydney New Years Eve Fireworks 2015-2016

Happy New Year from Sydney, Australia! Here’s a few snaps I took tonight as Sydney celebrated the start of 2016. I had intended to take photo’s from the eastern side of the Harbour Bridge but I got held up in traffic and I was 30 seconds too late before the road closed! Arrrggghhhh!  This necessitated a hasty…
