Ashley

Some models I can just shoot again and again without the shoots feeling stale or sameish. Ashley is one of those models.

Caught up with her for 2 shoots recently, which tend to be mostly chats and laughs, with a few pics taken in between.

Shot on Ilford Pan F and Agfa Vista 200 with a Leica M6 + Zeiss Biogon 35/2.0 and a Voitlander Nokton 50/1.5.


Lily for Cactus and Co

Caught up with the lovely Lily recently to shoot some of Cactus and Co’s latest designs.

Shot on Agfa Vista 200 with a Leica M6 + Zeiss Biogon 35/2.0, and a Canon EOS 5 + 50/1.5. Scanned with a Noritsu LS600.


Mitch and Kandis

Caught up with the photogenic couple Mitch and Kandis down at Caves Beach recently, and shot a few rolls of Agfa Vista 200.

Gonna miss my this film when my supply is gone!Read More


Amber

I first photographed Amber about 5 or 6 years ago. We did about 4 or 5 shoots in the space of 2 years, and then she disappeared travelling overseas.  When she messaged me a few weeks ago to see if I wanted to shoot again, I jumped at the chance to catch up with this fun, beautiful woman again.


Belle

Caught up with the delightful artist Belle Peregrine once again for a short, flu affected photo shoot.

Films shot were 1 roll of Fuji Natura 1600 and 2 rolls of Kodak Ultramax 400, all at box speed. Scanned on a Noritsu LS600.

The 4 Day, 7 Lighthouse Road Trip

I somehow managed to arrange a block of 4 days off in a row one week, and I was determined not to waste the opportunity. I somehow got it into my head that I wanted to photograph all the lighthouses between Newcastle and Byron Bay. Read More


Snapshots of Newcastle (December to May 2018)

I generally have a camera with me most of the time, and these snapshots are a random collection of interesting places and things I’ve seen over the last 6 months.Read More


Zoe

Caught up with the stunning Zoe whilst shooting new lingerie designs for Dantelle Collective, and we managed to shoot a couple of rolls of film as well. Read More


Amy

I’d been wanting to try out a couple of films I hadn’t used before (Cinestill 800 and Fuji Natura 1600), so I touched base with the beautiful Amy Everard to organise a nighttime shoot. Read More


Ashley

I’d seen some of Ashley’s work on instagram, and I loved her look. So when she messaged me and asked about film photography and if I’d like to shoot, I jumped at the chance.Read More


Grace

Grace reached out to me on Instagram to see if I was open to collaborating on a project together…how could I say no? We organised a sunrise shoot, and unfortunately it was really overcast and a little rainy, but we pushed on.Read More


Trashed Again, The Not Nots & The Dark Clouds at The Stag & Hunter

Got down to the local pub to see some bands…took the Leica M6 and shot a few pics with the Canon 50mm 1.8 LTM. The film was HP5@1600, dev’d in ID11.


Tori

Caught up with the gorgeous Tori for another shoot. This time I decided to try and use my Leica M6 for the full shoot. I went with Ilford HP5 pushed to 1600 – I really wanted to try and embrace the high contrast grainy look. That goes against what I normally try to do with portrait/fashion shoots, but hey, sometimes I like to do things the hard way.

In hindsight I probably should have taken a little more care in metering…with the high contrast look, underexposing a little lead to huuuuge increases in grain, and overexposing leads to flat, boring negatives.

You live and learn.

When I you nail it though, I think it looks great…might give it another try or two on shoots.
