SETH + AMINA

Photographed good mates Seth and Amina's wedding recently at Maleny Retreat. It was an epic day and a lot of fun to photograph. Make up and hair by Sarah Jane and the awesome Tipi was from Tipi Luxe. I shot this wedding on a mixture of 35mm film and digital. I have posted one of my favourite images from the day below along with a selection of the rest you can check out if you click ‘continue reading’ – hope you like them : ) Continue reading

BRISBANE TO SYDNEY

Late last year I did a road trip with my girlfriend Phoebe Galloway from Brisbane down to Sydney to see Star Wars on the big screen in IMAX. We camped and surfed our way down the coast and had a lot of great adventures. Click the 'Continue Reading' link below to see a few of the photos we took along the way : ) Continue reading

The day was shot entirely on 35mm film at Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane Australia. I have posted one of my favourite images from the day below along with a selection of the rest you can check out if you click 'continue reading' - hope you like them : ) Continue reading

THE LAST PROJECTIONIST

To get through film school I worked as an usher at a beautiful old cinema in Brisbane called The Regent. When it was quiet (which was most of the time) I would sneak up into the projection booth and hang out with the projectionists and watch them thread the projectors with film. Seeing this process really made me fall in love with film – the clatter of the machines, the flickering light – the projection booth was a magical place. So when Avatar came along and ended the film projection industry I was pretty bummed. Over the years that followed the Regent shut down and film projection slowly disappeared and with it I think we lost a lot of the magic that went along with going to the movies. The Christmas before last I was at home in Forster and was surprised to notice they were still projecting with film. I spoke to the projectionist after the movie and asked if I could interview him and film some shots of the projector. It just so happened that it was their last week before they changed over to digital projection at which point he was out of a job so he agreed to let me film and this is the result. I hope you enjoy the film - I’m happy I was able to make a record of this beautiful process before it disappeared.
