The Lonely Man – Waves of Isolation

I created another piece of conceptual art for my Lonely Man series, “Waves of Isolation”. I am pretty sure I am not the only one feeling this some days, trapped behind the same walls, unable to break free, feeling like your about to drown under a sea of worry and concern for what is going on…

The Lonely Man – Stairway to Nowhere

I took a little detour on my Lonely Man series, I actually left out the apple and the key, I did leave in the clouds. I am not sure if it still ties in with the others anymore or not. But I am also happy with it as a stand-alone image too. Do you ever…

The lonely Man – Waiting for the rains

It is said to be careful what one wishes for. We have had torrential rain in some areas of Australia, but still draught in others. After the bushfires and draughts to have flooded in some areas is truly devastating for some. While others can only wish they had some of the rain. The country is…

Fairy from the bottom of the garden

I recently did a shoot with Alexia and some incredible headpieces by Verdessa Fairy. This particular photo screamed to have a little more treatment. There was something so fairylike, but also so strong and regal, it reminded me of the tales of the Fairies at the bottom of the garden. I used to believe in…

The Lonely Man – Remnants of Time

It is said that we are born alone and that we will die alone, it is what we do with the time in between that is important. The truth is that we are not born alone, we are more often than not born into a sterile environment to hopefully be swept up into loving arms.…

Digital Art – Jewels from the Deep

I have been featuring some recent artwork from a Mermaid beach shoot, but this is probably my favourite. The actual water was shot in a pool in Bali back in 2017. I had fun use the Puppet Warp feature in Photoshop, as Jess was actually kneeling in the sand…she didn’t really look like she was…

Out of the studio – Moonlight Magic

This is another Mermaid shot from the other night. Someone had the brilliant idea of bringing an actual crystal ball…which I actually turned into a giant pearl in this image and it looked like Jess was irreverent or perhaps meditating in this shot, she looked so lovely and peaceful on the water’s edge, you could…

Out of the studio – Siren’s Song

Now, how cool is this? I went to a Mermaid Shoot at Half Moon Bay Surf Living Saving Club (boy that is a mouthful!) with about 30 other photographers to shoot some mermaids. Our Mermaids, that afternoon were both named Jess and Jess! We were supposed to be in two different groups, but I stepped…

In the Studio – Medusa

This post has been a little while coming…a bit like the piece itself. We made so many of the props and costume for this shoot. I purchased the vivid green hair and short sword, but pretty much everything else we made. I wanted to capture a mythical and mystical Medusa but had no clear vision…

Portrait Photographer of the year finalist

I got this in my inbox yesterday, wow…Top 40. For those days when I wonder if I am good enough (and yes I do get those too), this can remind me I am, but still have a ways to go. Still, there must have been 100s if not more, who entered the Portraits section and…
