Tim - Not hard to see why you’re winning so much adulation at the moment. Great stuff. Q: The pic with the bride getting ready and the groom hung on the wall..Is that a shot you did earlier or did you PS the image in? Either way, very effective – love it – tells a great tale.

I’M BACK FROM THE USA

Ok, so I have just returned from the most amazing trip overseas. I spent some time in San Francisco and Seattle. I met so many amazing people and I can say without a doubt that many of them will remain good friends of mine (hopefully) for many years to come. Obviously I took lots of photographs including a few couple sessions… Below is a really quick glimpses of what is to come.

Enjoy!

Angie Baxter - Fantastic Dan – LOVE them!

Leah Kua - TOO MUCH gorgeousness for one blog post to hold.

Kristen - These are lovely. However if you come back, you will put us all out of our jobs. You can still come back though.

Jeremy Beasley - Dan! These are great, looks like you had a ball. The walking through the street couple is my fav :)

Lauren Carroll - AMAZING as always. I love looking at your work!

johnna brynn - Dan! fabulous to see your work! i had the incredible pleasure of hanging and shooting with your buddy, christine, in connecticut this past wkend. She is fabulous! So.. i think i’ll meet u in november?! as i’ll join the Voice workshop as well. :) Great work, thanks for inspiring…

Julian Beattie - Dogfather grooming shot… Hands down, the best minimalistic funk on film, ever.

Ian - Every morning when i wake up for the past week my regime has been in order as this. Check up on little baby Emma, make a cup of coffee( beans first with a touch of milk then stirred till it becomes paste like then add water, my wife Karla thinks im a lunatic ), then hit the hyperlink to you and read and watch.

I love it and find myself getting more and more absorbed into your fabulous works ;~)

I’M ON HOLIDAY!

So it is holiday time for me.. I am in San Francisco  for a few days and then I am off to Seattle for a little bit. There are many plans in the bag for the next couple of weeks so I am really excited… Today was my first full day in San Francisco.. I started the day by asking an employee at the Hotel I am staying for directions to somewhere that isn’t a huge tourist trap.. somewhere local, quiet and somewhere that has good coffee… He past the test on all the criteria! I saw some pretty amazing sights today, “hilly” streets, beautiful houses and stunning views of the river and the amazing Golden Gate Bridge .. well, the bottom half of it anyway (the top was covered with low cloud).

I was going to get a taxi to drive me the 13 blocks down to Filmore St. , but then I had a little journey over destination moment and decided to walk the distance, camera in hand. The pictures below are a small collection of images I took on my walk along a very “normal” San Fran st.. These were all taken in a window of about an hour and I would have missed them all had I grabbed that cab. Nothing special, just little moments captured but I really enjoyed this part of today and felt it was worth documenting…

REBECCA ON THE ROCKS

Last year, I spent a couple of day’s down the coast at Guerilla Bay.. I was there shooting for an exhibition I was holding later that year. I took this pic of Bec on the rocks.. Aside from the boat and the birds, it felt like we were the only two people awake at that time of the morning

REBECCA ON THE BEACH

Katie - Superb. Love those birds – my favourite bit. :-)

alyda - x60

Christine Pobke - what birds, kk?

hehehe. i adore the silhouette – you can’t tell whether they’re two people kissing or one big man pondering. (i’m choosing to ignore the fact that you said it was bec – it’s my own interpretation!) :)

kristen - dude, that’s so personal.

Beth Jennings - Love this man, nuff said

mujzisme - wow super nice =)

STUART & ALICIA

The first time I met Alicia was 2007 in Berlin. I never asked her what she did for a living and Alicia never asked me, we shared a brief conversation through a mutual friend outside a hostel in the heart of the city and then parted ways. It was purely by chance that two years later I receive a query and shortly after, turned up to Alicia and Stuart’s house to discuss the details of their wedding day. It was at that moment Alicia and I looked at each other and said, “Your face looks familiar?!”

Small world..
