A successful artist talk and demo yesterday at Cradle of Hills winery as part of the Inkaparinga Shimmer photography festival.
Shooting live on location to show the methods and madness of the style of shooting for my series “L U C I D”
A question and answer session as we went. I hope everyone gained something, from a new techniques to just being inspired to create new things
Thank you to my lovely model Annika, who was a dream to work with! One thing about working with other artists, is that they have vision. (I can’t wait to check out your own work soon)
Here’s a few images that happened
Thanks everyone! ✌🏻️👽

Story time- yesterday I started heading to the beach, boards packed, waves enticing…. Then I pulled in to a servo to fill up. Who do I see? My good mate and fellow photographer @lee_knowles_photographer whose beloved Kombi Van had broken down. Engine seized. Not good…. I asked if he needed a lift, turned out he was on his way to his Shimmer exhibition at Sellicks where he was demonstrating how he shoots his work. I took him to the winery and helped set up, then thought I'd stay for a while to watch him in action. It was very inspiring! His model Annika could play the piano beautifully so I took some footage of them working together and recorded her playing. Wow! No surf for me, I ended up staying the whole time! All the images are Lee's at the end of the video. Tap to listen to music!
So my exhibition for the Onkaparinga Shimmer Biennale 2016 launched with success yesterday! I love this festival of photography, and can safely say I believe its the most important date in the South Australian photography calendar! My series Lucid finally all came together in one place in print for eyes to see! My venue, Cradle of Hills winery at Sellicks hill is wonderful, such a lovely place with a beautiful vibe and scenic views.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support the opening, we all enjoyed some nibbles, wine tasting, good conversation and some of my art.
The exhibition is open for the whole of September and is by appointment and tasting with Cradle of hills winery (their details are here)
Go take a look and taste their boutiques wines, along with the other photographic exhibitions in the area.
Thanks to my un-official official photographers who captured some pics of the launch
So as some of you may know, I have recently enrolled into Adelaides CCP (Creative Centre for Photography) to to work towards some professional development, creative inspiration and to solidify the dedication to my passion with some ticks in boxes and a cert. Along the way so far Ive met some amazing new people, which is another reason for going into studies. With assessment last night, Ive just passed my first module in creative portfolio building. Now time for some reflection and breathe time before I start my next module. The next module I take will be darkroom specialisation and Im thoroughly looking forward to developing my skills here and going out to shoot more film!
Ive taken the time this morning to look through a recent shoot, (which Ive not had time to see properly until now) and have discovered some lovely new images towards ‘LUCID’. As with all images from Lucid, each image is from one single exposure, no photoshop. I love the results. So I thought I’d share.
I feel Im going to print this large as there is so much happening in the shot that needs to be seen. Continuing with the unearthly and spiritual notion of this series I think this image goes to a new level. The complexity of what happens in between frames is coming together and giving us a motion picture story within a single image. I hope you enjoy it for a few seconds (or minutes)
