‘SPAIN ON FILM’ PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION – March 2015 // The CCP, Adelaide

For the first time in many years, I’m exhibiting some personal work – the medium format series ‘SPAIN ON FILM’. Captured on a Yashica Twin Lens Reflex, the series depicts the various streets, characters, landscapes and light I encountered on a two week road trip across the country last year.

If you’re in Adelaide on Wednesday March 4th and feel like a look, come down to the CCP (where my passion for photography was born). I’ll being plying people with wine and fine cheeses from 6-8pm.

PBS Drive Live 2015 // Black Cab + GL + Lowtide

I don’t get a lot of time for my music photography (my first love) these days – it’s hard to fit it into the craziness of a busy summer wedding season. But whenever my friends at PBS FM Community Radio call, I come running.

The PBS Drive Live is a week long series of live on-air performances, featuring the cream of the local music scene. This year I was honoured to crawl around in the studios whilst shoegazers Lowtide, Electronic funk/soul duo GL, and epic drone and electronic outfit Black Cab played their sets. All three acts put on phenomenal shows.

Here’s my view of what went down.

Tiff + Terepai // Byron Bay Destination Wedding // She Takes Pictures He Makes Films

Tiff + Terepai chose the perfect location for their three days of wedding bliss; the beautiful Byron Bay. Sun, surf, crystals, tipis… drumming and dancing, feasts and ferns… laughter, love and the moon.

Alastair and I were invited as She Takes Pictures He Makes Films to capture their amazing family’s love story.

We joined Terepai, his oldest son Tainui and his mates on an early morning surf; visited the healing surrounds of Crystal Castle with Tiff, her besties and her adorable little gentlemen Rocket and Fin; partied and soaked in the sun throughout the wedding day at the stunning The Grove Byron Bay; and relaxed at a chilled recovery breakfast at Secret Garden the following morning.

The wedding celebrated their diverse heritage with a special Polynesian ceremony performed by Terepai’s mum, sister and Aunts, laying brightly-coloured traditional linens around the embracing family. After a sun-kissed golden hour portrait session with the beautiful couple, everyone ate, drank and danced into the night (with special drumming solos from Terepai and little rockstar Fin).

We were absolutely honoured to have been part of it, and to have had the chance to meet so many incredible, fun and talented people along the way.
