For my most recent shoot with Joanna, I was wanting to create images that while overall dark, had enough light falling on just sections of the subject, to still create something very delicate and intimate.

While a lot of my shoots are with agency models, many people don't realise that many of them are not. Working with non-models can be more challenging, but in many ways, it is highly rewarding. One of the challenges of portrait photography is helping the subject to relax and be  comfortable in front of the lens so that their natural look can be conveyed. 

My second shoot of the year was with Eleanor Green, a Melbourne based stylist who understands this well and it was an enjoyable experience working and creating this series together. 

Eleanor was relaxed, charming and very comfortable in front of the camera and I would not hesitate to work with her again.

Kyotocat


I was contacted by American model Kyotocat to photograph her while she was travelling through Melbourne. These are just some of the results.

Hopefully we'll get a chance to work together again in the future.

Maxi


I've worked with Melbourne based musician and good friend Maxi on a number of occasions for her promotional work (some of which are scattered throughout this site), however for this shoot we decided to create a much more intimate and person style, using a mix of film and digital cameras.

You can check out her music here.

Mad Dame and I have been working together for almost 4 years, and during this time she has become one of my favourite models.

In 2013 we were fortunate enough to be one of the featured photographer/models in the book: The Mammoth Book of Erotic Photography - Vol 4.

Below are some of my personal favourites from our large portfolio of work over the years.
