Summer 2014 photo recap

Surfest Newcastle

Surfest Newcastle

It's been a busy start to the year and I like to keep this place up to date with what i've been shooting, so rather than labour over individual posts i'm going to dump a big batch of images that i've shot since January.

It's a varied mix; from big events to portraits, tourism, food, PR jobs, theatre and music.

A lot of what I read about being successful in a creative career says you need to specialise - to hone your craft in a specific field. To be known for thatone thing you do better than anybody else. I don't doubt that's good advice but I can't help wanting to shoot all sorts of things.  

Surfest Newcastle

I had a great assignment from Destination NSW to shoot pictures of Surfest in Newcastle as well as some more tourism oriented shots of the area. I'd never shot surfing before, but it was great fun sniping shots of the action from the shore with a 400mm lens.

Helen Kaminski

I shot some PR pictures for the hatmaker Helen Kaminski. Shooting models is still a novelty for me as most of the time i'm shooting "normal" people who clam up in front of the camera. Models make my job EASY.

Sydney Festival

I didn't shoot a lot of Sydney Festival this year, but I did have the joy of spending 3 hours 50 metres above the crowd in a cherry picker to shoot wide vistas of the Summer at the Domain concert.
