Travel: 7 Days in London

If this is the first of my travel blogs from my recent trip to England that you’re reading, you’ve picked the right one! Back in September 2014 I took a three week holiday in England (and a couple of days in Paris) for the first time. London was obviously going to be the highlight, so I started the trip with seven days in London to explore, take photos, and see as much as humanly possible. I got sick as soon as I got there (probably from the 24 hours of travel) but I didn’t let it stop me – instead …

Travel: Bristol and Bath, England

After spending three days in Cornwall I took the train to Bristol where I stayed for two days to check out the city of Bristol and also Bath. I really enjoyed my time here, Bristol was an interesting city and quite different to London, with lots of great street art to photograph. Bath had so much history, and even though it wasn’t far from Bristol it was very different too. All photos shot with my Nikon D800 and either a Nikon 35mm f1.8 or 14-24mm f2.8. If you want to see more shots you can view them on my Flickr. I …

Travel: The Cotswolds, England

I took a day tour with Premium Tours to visit The Cotswolds from London to see what everyone calls the ‘real’ English countryside. We visited Burford, Bibury, Bourton-on-the-water, and Stow-the-wold. It was a great tour, there were so many cute little shops to visit and ice-cream to eat. If you want to get out of the city for a day and see something different, this is a good tour to do. All photos were taken on my Nikon D800 with either a Nikon 35mm f1.8 or 14-24mm f2.8. You can view more photos on my Flickr here.

Travel: Cornwall, England

Continuing on with my England photos, I spent three days in Cornwall after staying in London for a week – it was so refreshing to take a break from the city and be surrounded by nature and so much green! All photos shot with my Nikon D800 and Nikon 35mm f1.8 lens. If you’d like to see more you can view them on my Flickr. Day One: I arrived in the afternoon after a six hour train ride from London, and took a long walk along the coast from Carbis Bay to St Ives. The weather was perfect, and the pathways between beaches …

Travel: Brighton, England

During my three-week trip to England in September, I spent a day in Brighton with my friend Carly. It was such a cute coastal town, only an hour on the train from London. It reminded me a bit of what I’ve seen of Coney Island in the movies – pretty pastel colours, deck chairs on the beach, rides, a carousel and a ferris wheel. We walked along the ‘beach’, went shopping down through North Laine and The Lanes, and visited the Royal Pavilion – an old Indian-style palace (unfortunately no photos were allowed inside). Here’s a few of my favourites …

Highlights Of 2014

2014 has been a pretty great year! I had the privilege of seeing a bunch of bands live that I never expected to – Veruca Salt, Nine Inch Nails, Courtney Love, and I shot some that I never thought I would get the opportunity to – Katy Perry, Placebo, John Mayer. I saw three of my top 10 favourite bands (Placebo, Foo Fighters and John Mayer), and best of all I followed Placebo on tour and was able to see them live four times in six days – more on that here. And throughout all that I also started a Pet …

Pet Photography: Santa Paws 2014

Over the last two weekends I ran the Santa Paws Pet Portraits for My Pet Warehouse, where we were based in three stores with our pop-up photo studio in South Yarra, Richmond and Malvern. Customers could come in for a 15 minute session which included two different shots of their pet with Santa (or themselves included), and a variety of choices of prints, cards and mugs with their best friend on it (the cards were a big hit!), as well as a 10% donation to Melbourne Animal Rescue. It was so much fun meeting all the different pets and so many friendly …

Dog Lovers Show – Sydney 2014

Last weekend I flew to Sydney to photograph the Dog Lovers Show for My Pet Warehouse at the Royal Hall Of Industries. We were there for three days and there were so many gorgeous dogs to meet – either up for adoption, at the breeder stalls or on one of the stands. By the end of the show there were so many sleepy dogs, it was a big weekend but they were all so well behaved. My favourite events were DockDogs Australia (where dogs leap off a platform into a pool to retrieve a toy) and The Wonderdogs, they were so …

PAX Aus 2014

Last weekend I photographed PAX Aus 2014, it was massive! Here’s some of the highlights, and the full gallery can be viewed on my Flickr.                    

Creepshow Halloween Festival 2014

Last night I shot Creepshow Halloween Festival at The Espy for Saltar Hype, here’s a few of my favourite shots. There were so many great bands on the bill, I wish I could have captured them all!
