Black & White Koh Lanta

Black & White Koh Lanta

I’ve been in a bit of a photography rut

Given my amazing surrounds of Thailand, that might be a slight surprise, but I never quite anticipated the hangover of my 2016 photo-a-day conquest I forgot it was a leap year – that 366th day really got me. Something about needing to find a subject or scene, every day, that was compelling, interesting, etc… It just got me down a little by the end and resulted in me being a little reluctant to pick up my camera in 2017 (well, so far).

Week One in Phuket, Thailand

Week One in Phuket, Thailand

Our South East Asia trip started in a really casual manner. First job after getting off our flight ( which was as smooth as you could hope considering we were delayed in Melbourne due to lightning and landed in lightning) was getting to our Airbnb joint. Instructions were a little vague, we were a little tired, but we figured it out. I mean, obviously. Our place was past most of the action of Patong and Karon, down the Southern end of Phuket in a town called Kata. A pretty sweet little find, in hindsight. Continue Reading..

Event Photography, Social Media & Connecting Technology

Is a picture worth a thousand words on Twitter?
When it comes to Twitter, based on some rough calculations, a picture exceeds the 140 character limit by around 4,850 characters – if a picture is actually worth a thousand words*. The ability to add rich media, or high-end photography can really help serve as the hook to get the attention of your audience when you’re running an event physically and virtually. And this extends to other social platforms (thinking Instagram), too. Continue Reading..

Cook for Kids with Ben Shewry and Friends

Cook for Kids with Ben Shewry and Friends

60 Guest, at $1,000 per head. This was the entry price for a food extravaganza to support Helping Hoops via the aptly named Cook For Kids with Ben Shewry and Friends. And these friends came from all over the place, bringing their staff too and world class experience. They all donated their time, skills, effort, travel costs, they hustled for food and wine donations. Basically, this night was huge for so many contributors. Continue Reading..

I've taken the plunge & I'm starting a small business...

I’ve worked for other people and companies all my life. It’s been great. I’ve got almost 15 years experience working in tech companies from small business, start ups to large enterprise. I’ve worked on big client facing projects in both B2B and B2C, as well as back end systems that aren’t directly visible on the outside. In the past 8 or so years though, I’ve diversified with regards to what I’m passionate about. Continue Reading..

Framing Federation Square

Framing Federation Square

Over the space of a few weeks, I was lucky enough to do the first Instagram Takeover of Federation Square. If you’re not aware, Fed Square sits right next to Flinders Street Station, and really is the meeting place of Melbourne. It was great to get some special access of this iconic Melbourne landmark, but equally awesome to get to eat my way around and get to know it a little better. Continue Reading..
