The Social Lifestyle

‘Australia’ premiere, ACE Cinemas Midland Gate

Since┬ámoving on from Drum Media to join cross-town rivals Xpress Magazine, I’ve been thrown out of my comfort zone in a big way. Venue reviews, event coverage, and social photos make up a large part of Xpress’s content, and while I’d dabbled a little in the past, I think I’ll certainly be on a steep learning curve for the next few weeks, especially since most of these jobs require me to use my often-neglected flash and actually think about white balance.

One Movement launch @ Parmelia Hilton 281008

November 09th, 2008 | Category: Live Photography


A few weeks ago I got a call from Sunset Events asking if I could cover an event launch for them, as their usual guy was unavailable. Was no problemo, especially after they explained what the launch was for. So it was off to the swanky surrounds of Perth’s Hilton franchise to learn a little bit more about what was swimming in my head as ‘the new South By Southwest’.

While our American neighbours voted today for change, you can cast your vote in a far far less important election. A few weeks ago I entered four photos into the Perth Dance Music Awards ‘Best Scene Photograph’ competition and promptly forgot about it. Today I discover all four of my photos have been shortlisted, and are up for voting. Must’ve been a slow year for submissions, I’ve only shot two events that qualified, so had to scrounge up photos for submission.

But that said, it’d be quite nice to win, as the prize is a hire voucher for a Nikon D700 and lenses. Now, I’m not looking at switching teams any time soon, but I’ve been wanting to have a play with one for quite some time.

So if you’d like to vote, head on over to You don’t have to sign up or log in ro anything. Nice and quick. My photos are #1, #3, #14, #15. Out of all of them I probably like #1 the best, but vote for whatever!

Gyroscope @ Metro City 031008

November 01st, 2008 | Category: Live Photography

Gyroscope, Metro City

Gyroscope’s epic ‘Australia’ tour came to a close with a sell out show at Metro City at the start of October. They’re only the second Perth band in my own recent memory to sell out this venue, so it’s a big deal, and a huge achievement by the boys. As seems to be the norm these days, I found myself there with camera in hand (with thanks to Rob who sorted out my pit access).
