Abandoned Brighton

As chance would have it, instead of the angsty, moody images I sought out to capture, I ended up producing the series of work in this post. A somewhat abandoned Brighton with a whimsical post apocalyptic feel. Like if Wes Anderson directed a horror film of sorts.

RYLAND: If Not Later, When?

When you photograph commercially 99% of the time, sometimes it is nice to step back and actually craft an image instead of capture a moment, which I have since learned are two very different ways of shooting.

Cold Blooded

I've always wanted to photograph/film something based off a song or album that particularly resonated with me. So the fact that I actually pulled this one out from my head and into the world makes me so deliriously happy.

Test Shoot: Charlie

It's not as if I don't have content. In actuality, I have content coming out of my ears, for use of a better term. There are hard drives of untouched, unearthed content just waiting to be shared with some kind of internet audience. No longer will these shoots be gaining dust because I'm promising to myself - and you guys for that matter - that I'll be posting them here.

Test Shoot: Christian

It's been a while since I've done a portrait shoot. This is mostly due to the fact that I've been too busy climbing mountains to spend some time shooting some more *~fashion~* images, but I've also been feeling a little uninspired in this department.

Manchuria

After shooting for six years, I've found that my hunger for creativity and ability to harness inspiration passes me by faster than the days of the month. Everything comes and goes so quickly that I often don't get time to react.

An Insider’s Guide to Photographing Fashion Week

I’ve been photographing fashion week since the wee age of seventeen. I’ve captured the collections of designers such as Alex Perry, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Dion Lee. I‘m not going to lie and pretend to be humble about having done this. It’s pretty fucking cool.

Test Shoot: Sebastian

I took Sebastian to my favourite cafe, Chez Dre in South Melbourne. I have this awful habit of 'wining and dining' my models before we shoot. It kind of tends to ease any tension that's always associated with meeting a person for the first time, and it also provides for some good photo opportunities.

Runaway

The problem for me right now is that I’m not quite qualified enough to get a job in the field that I’m studying. Even though I’m saving up for an overseas holiday with my best friend and need all the money I can get, I can’t get out of the rut that is: I’m just not passionate about what I’m doing with myself while I’m on holidays.

#Modellife: BTS RMIT Fashion Graduate Runway

Model life is considered to be beautiful boys and girls wandering around in designer clothes with perfect hair and makeup, legs for days and the perfect proportions, and it's refreshing to be reminded that it isn't really like that. There were no designer pink dressing gowns and champagne flutes backstage at last night's show, nor did the models have time to pose for me in between makeup artists and hair stylists attacking their heads with multiple products in a fine frenzy.
