Pupography – I love Lucy⠀

Our three year old Great Dane Harold loves Lucy, the older woman from across the park next door. Every morning he races to her fence in anticipation of rendezvous⠀

I love shooting our pups – they bring so much happiness to a home and lessons in unconditional love. ⠀

Technically it’s fun to utilise many of the same portrait techniques but with the addition of a squeaky toy and treats.⠀

Hmmm, wonder if I can apply that to some people?⠀

Lara Love, Moulin Rouge, Burlesque and French couture.

I saw @BazLuhrmann directing and shooting a photoshoot the other day of the stage adaptation of Moulin Rouge – the attention to detail was creatively inspiring.

Coincidently, during the week I did a event photoshoot for Cup and Cook cafe’s – French Dinner Night, the food and wine devine – (duck pate OMG I love you!) with the lovely @laralove.official titillating the guests with her burlesque beauty and bravado.
It seems like all things French there is the underlying love of the art or the art of love – manifested in many forms – the language, the food, the dance, the wine, a style and so on.
With burlesque there’s a seems to be that certain je ne sais quoi – it is the sassiness of the performance, the intricate detailing of the costume, the brazen promiscuity? I don’t know – maybe it’s the people passion thing that attracts me most or that pursuit of essence & #ikigai .

Cup and Cook French food & wine night.

Cup and Cook French food & wine night.

📷Had the pleasure of shooting local St George area favourite cafe☕️ - Cup and Cook @cupandcook cafe's at Kyle Bay for their 🇫🇷 🧀French food & 🍷wine night. The food was devine (I'm now in love with chicken liver pate & blue cheese), the wine superb, a bit of burlesque and some French love songs (in stark contrast to funny owner Mat Ox's 🏉#RedV loving banter). ⠀-Cup and Cook

Portrait of a music man – Willy Hona⠀

i shot this portrait of New Zealand music legend Willy Hona just a few months after our dad passed away. Willy performing our mum’s favourite song, Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” at Dad’s funeral is still vivid in my memory. ⠀

The musical moments that provide the soundscape to our lives.⠀
