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 …

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!

Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards 2014

This week I photographed the AIR Awards (now known as the Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards) at the Meat Market in North Melbourne. This was my fifth year of shooting these awards, and they just get bigger and better every year. Courtney Barnett, Violent Soho and Remi all had multiple wins, with Remi taking home the $50,000 Carlton Dry Global Music Grant. Congratulations to all the winners!

Listen Out Festival

This weekend I photographed Listen Out Festival at the Royal Botanical Gardens. The venue was great, the people were great, the sun was shining and everyone was happy. Highlights included Chet Faker, Deja, Tkay Maidza, the Grill’d Burger Park, and the friendly and helpful staff around the site. I would definitely recommend checking it out next year.

Pet Photography: Gov The Pony

Since coming to work for My Pet Warehouse last year as a graphic designer and photographer, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many of the cute pets that are brought into the store nearly every day, and I’ve loved it so much that I’ve decided to expand into the world of pet photography. This was my first shoot with Gov – an eight-year-old 12.2hh gelding, a buckskin-registered Australian pony who has won a number of medals including Novice Show Hunter Pony and Champion Australian Pony at the Royal Melbourne Show. I shot these out on a farm in Yering, Victoria, …

Hanson ‘Anthem’ Tour 2014

When I was in high school and every single girl had posters of Hanson in their locker except me (I was busy listening to No Doubt and Aqua), if someone had have told me that one day I would photograph them, I definitely would not have believed it. So anyway, last night I photographed Hanson for their Anthem tour at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne. The squeals were almost deafening – I’ve never been to a One Direction or Ed Sheeran concert, but I imagine the crowd sounded the same. I didn’t stick around to hear Mmm Bop, but I …

Cat Cafe Melbourne – First Look

I was lucky enough to visit the new Cat Cafe in Melbourne before it opened to the public, and photograph some of their gorgeous cats for My Pet Warehouse. This cafe is the first of it’s kind in Australia, so it was very exciting to see what it was like! You can read more about our experience on the My Pet Warehouse blog.    

Oz Comic Con 2014

This year I photographed Oz Comic Con for The AU Review, and it was such a fun weekend! The effort that the fans go to to cosplay their favourite characters is incredible, the actors panels were great, and there’s something for everyone. Here’s some of my favourite images, you can view the full set on Flickr here.

Rock N Load 2014

This year I was the official photographer for Saltar Hype’s Rock N Load festival at The Espy in Melbourne. It was a huge lineup with 34 bands over 4 stages, running from 3pm until 2:30am. Here’s a selection of my favourites, and you can view the rest on my Flickr.
