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.
