Boite Singers Festival

Last weekend I had an amazing time singing and photographing during the Boite Singers Festival at the Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne. From Georgian Polyphony to Pygmy rythyms via Calypso classics it was a blast! Thank you to organisers Roger King and Therese Virtue, and all the choir leaders and volunteers who made it possible.

If these halls could talk

Over the next year and a half, I’ll be documenting a wonderful project that matches artists from different disciplines with various country halls in the Northern Rivers to bring the history of that hall to life through art. From opera to sculpture to multimedia projections, the hills will be alive with art and history throughout […]

Byron Bay Film Festival

About 2 years ago, I began using my DSLR camera to shoot video. With the aim of honing my skills, Pierre-Jacques and I decided to make a short film around where we live. Working with non-actors and at the mercy of time constraints and the weather, our project grew in a very organic way into […]

The Fieseler Storch

I’ve just had another one of those days where I’m reminded how much I love my job. I had an impromptu flight over Byron Bay in a WW2 replica Fieseler Storch – a nippy little plane that can fly like a bird – turning and swooping and almost grazing the tops of the trees. So […]

I had fun last week photographing the PopUp shop that popped up at the old Byron Library. The library never looked so good! This was an initiative of Northern Rivers Creative. See more about what they do here

an autumn afternoon in the hills

I don’t often photograph weddings, but my friend Zenith is a celebrant and sometimes I like to photograph elopements. These are really special weddings as the couple are totally there with each other, in that moment of their commitment, undistracted by any social pressures. Zenith marries them and I document and witness. It feels like […]

More floods!

It seems that we in the Northern Rivers are destined to live with rain, rain and more rain. The up-side is that we are surrounded by a lush green paradise!

V-Day Byron Bay

Feb 14, 2013. Around the world people gathered to show their outrage about the tide of violence against women. Byron Bay saw a beautiful sunny morning with an enthusiastic bunch of dancers, spurred on by powerful words from Zenith Virago. The event ended with a big nude swim and more dancing to Aretha. What a […]

Dancing with Oswald

We recently danced on the edge of Cyclone Oswald who was cruising in the area. I LOVE dramatic weather so got my jollies taking my phone out to be rain soaked, wind battered and sand blasted – woo hoo!!! I love the fact that I can take my phone out, safely cradled in the palm […]

Filming the beachside markets

Yesterday was a perfect sunny day for the Byron beachside market. I was there to film for an upcoming advertising campaign and found that the markets seems to be about the only place that you can still find the ‘spirit of Byron’. Loads of talented artists and artisans touting their wares with good humour and […]

Beached Santa…

I’m not sure if it’s Santa washed up on the beach or PJ masquerading as a sapin de noel… We had fun making these pictures while making the most of Christmas on the beach!

Playing on the phone…

Something that I love about tutoring is how much I learn… During a session on Lightroom with Glenda, she showed me her Instagram library. She’s doing some really cool stuff! Check her out #butterflyblue She pointed me in the direction of an app for slow shutter speeds. Thus the photo of PJ in his speedy […]

An amazing event!

Thursday night was a magical one… I love my job when I’m sent into a mystery location to photograph a delirium of colourful characters, amazing sets, wild food, funky bars and musical mayhem. This was an event by Rizer with food and bars by Seaweed Cuisine. See a complete gallery here
