Xpress cover shoot @ King Carnival 151208

Gyroscope, Kings Carnival

A couple of weeks before Christmas, I got a fairly out-of-the blue phonecall from the editor of Xpress asking if I’d be available to shoot Gyroscope for the cover of their Christmas issue. ‘Of course’ I said, the nerves of doing my first cover shoot completely flattened out by being able to work with the Gyro boys again. It wasn’t until later that I found out I got the gig because the guys suggested me specifically, which was lovely of them, and very flattering.

We headed down to King Carnival in Mandurah (about an hour and a half south of Perth), as the cover was intended to promote Gyroscope’s appearance at the Rollercoaster Festival, which is held each year at the park next to the carnival. With the big old retro ferris wheel being an icon of the Mandurah foreshore, and closely associated┬áwith the festival┬áby punters, I could think of no better backdrop.

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays to you all! May the next couple of weeks be relaxing and safe for you and your family.

Been quiet round these parts for a while, been stupidly busy between photos, Christmas shopping, and the good old day job. I’m not really getting much time off (basically, today is it!) but hopefully I’ll find some time soon to catch up on posts. Two live gigs, and one very very fun press shoot.

The Chemist

The Chemist, The Rocket Room

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing a few press photos for the boys from The Chemist. After taking this photo┬áof lead singer Ben at the Rocket Room a few months ago, I was keen to get back there and have another go with that backdrop. Luckily, management didn’t mind us taking over the venue for a few hours, so I carted my flashes, umbrellas and light stands into Northbridge for a cruisy little weekday shoot.

The first…of many?

I’m not really the type to make a big song-and-dance when I get published anywhere, but I defy anyone not to get excited upon seeing one of their photos in Rolling Stone for the very first time:

That set of photos is distributed by their record company, so they’ve been popping up anywhere and everywhere. I still feel a little guilty over the fact I got paid to hang out with one my favourite bands for an afternoon and take photos of them. But I’m glad they were my first RS shot, instead of some random band I had no interest in.┬á:D
