  1. Náttúra.

    Date 08 Jun 2016
    Before I left for the UK I worked on this series of nude portraits. Entitled Náttúra, the works were twists on camouflage in a way that focussed on form rather than colours and patterns - think seeds, foetuses, waves, roots, plants, etc.  As this was winter, my models were enduring freezing…

  2. TFC.

    Date 06 Apr 2016
    Melanie awaiting her glamour shot. Sam starving himself. Sam and I collaborated for his TFC project in late 2014. When he approached me with the concepts originally I was thrilled - he gave me a shit tonne of freedom with the images along with the brief. The core of the…

  4. 2015, The Year That Was.

    Date 11 Dec 2015
    It feels like I just closed my eyes in a tepee at Falls Festival, and suddenly now it’s December! The year has flown by, so here is a cute little look back at the year with some of my favourite/most memorable moments. January saw the Tasmania blog, which focussed on said trip to…

  5. Sacha Half Moon Bay.

    Date 11 Nov 2015
    Before I left I squeezed in one last collaboration with Sacha! I’d been inspired by how beautiful Half Moon Bay was after spending so much time away from it, and we were collaborating with Elana Pandelides. People familiar with my work over the years have probably seen a few things shot…

  6. Mobile Travel.

    Date 22 Oct 2015
    Here’s a collection of some of my favourite mobile photography shots so far. Fellow creative Thomas Lim inspired me during our interview for Koko Mag III (read that here).

    June saw a collaboration I’ve been hoping to work on come to life! Shauny Ben-Natan, who I went to high school with in Sandringham, and I have finally teamed up for a shoot! We’ve always wanted to collaborate, so we made the most of it when the time arrived. You might…

  13. Immortal.

    Date 16 Jul 2015
    My latest published editorial, ‘Immortal’, was featured in Rebelicious Magazine’s July issue. It featured Memphis Black as the model, with Rebecca Vaughan giving us our wonderful makeup look. The main concept of the piece was to recreate the traditional elegance of a geisha, but to apply it to a strong modern…

  14. Unseen.

    Date 14 Jun 2015

  15. HANY X KAFEI.

    Date 25 May 2015
    Hany and I are long time collaborators. We went to high school together, and I roped her in to many torturous photoshoots (onions, nudity, chains, that creepy Noki inspired mask I forced on everyone that year). Hany having just returned from Korea recording her debut album, and with my Koko Mag…

  16. Origami.

    Date 07 May 2015
    I have experimented with kaleidoscope photography in the past, mirroring and kaleidoscoping were a big part of my work in 2010/11, and I wanted to return to it this year. My main reason for it becoming sidelined, is simply because I like to create everything in camera, I’m not a…

  17. Nightcall.

    Date 22 Mar 2015
    For those of you following me on other social media, you’ve probably heard of Koko Mag - a Fashion and Culture magazine I’ve been developing over the past few months. Issue one has just launched with some great content, one of the published editorials was ‘Nightcall’, a dark fashion editorial…

  19. Tasmania.

    Date 22 Jan 2015
    The New Year period was spent in Tasmania for me, and three of my friends, where I opted to leave my camera, my laptop - basically all electronic devices - at home. It never hurts to have a digital detox, especially in a job so reliant on digital technology Instead,…

  20. Sacha Clare.

    Date 12 Jan 2015
    The last time I worked with Sacha, it involved topless-ness and eight tiny bunnies; the time before, long exposure “ghost-fashion” in an abandoned mental asylum. This time though, we decided to take a low-key studio approach, and shoot a black and white fashion editorial Sacha Claremodel: Sacha Reevedressed in: Kookai…

  23. The Invasion.

    Date 01 Nov 2014
    With the beginning of the Doctor Who Series 8 finale about to air, I figured it was an excellent opportunity to blog about my time in London - and my photoshoot which has obviously had a huge impact on the making of the most recent series…. or maybe not, it…

  24. Monument.

    Date 05 Oct 2014
    ‘Monument’ has been a consolidation of a few different ideas of my own, as well as one of Selby’s My main inspiration, and title of the piece, comes from Robyn and Röyksopp’s recent collaborative album, and it’s opening track ‘Monument’. From that I wanted to create very striking black and…
