West End Place for Juddy Roller

Juddy Roller have been a long time client and it’s been great to see Shaun move on to curate some of the largest projects in Melbourne. I went down to the newest project - West End Place to take some work in progress shots, can’t wait to see this completed!

Hotels of Pyongyang - Book Release

After a few environmental setbacks Head Tilt Press  and James Scullin have released Hotels of Pyongyang for sale online at
I had the amazing experience last year of traveling to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to photograph 11 hotels in 4 days (yes 4 days) with minimal time, minimal camera gear and no laptop! (I usually shoot architecture tethered so it was a bit of an experience) 
There were more then a few challenges with photographing the hotels, but our amazing guides did such a wonderful job in conveying what we needed to the hotel staff, and I still can’t quite get over how accommodating most people were.
The result is this publication, nearly 200 pages of images of some of the most fabulous and nostalgic hotel interiors, from karaoke rooms, bars, pool areas to grand dining halls and portraits of hotel staff members.
A huge thanks to James Scullin, the man behind the project and who took me along to a country I thought was impossible to go to, for literally an experience of a life time, and put all the hard work into producing the book. 

Fake Flowers on Fire

During the lockdown of Covid-19 I set up a little space outside so I could keep myself busy and keep photographing. This is a series of fake flowers from the local Vietnamese market, not costing more then a few dollars each. The effect on my health from the fumes is another story though and my C-stand will never be the same! Some of these are also available in my print store here.

ISO Portraits

A challenge was put out by 99 Productions to a bunch of photographers to create some images based on being isolated during the Covid-19 pandemic. I thought I’d go a bit tounge in check and I made some self portraits!   

Baseball - Melbourne Women’s Baseball Tournament

I had been bothering my friend about getting down to one of his daughters baseball games for ages before the starts finally aligned and one very hot Saturday I ventered down to expierence a tournament that was dedicated to the AAGPBL.
I volunteered to take some portraits of the women who were playing and I got some beauties! The shadow from the practise nets gets me everytime! Thanks Matt and Lily!
