It has been a looooong time since I was actively involved in the music scene. I always enjoyed improvising with other musicians (jamming) and felt like it was a high-ware act of sorts. Barely in control, but feeling so good about skating along on the top of it all. Making sense out of all of [...]

Melbourne City is full of lanes and alleys, one of the most famous is the graffiti lane ‘Hosier Lane’. I created this panorama of Hosier Lane using seven separate shots. It’s a very interesting place to shoot in I decided! “Lanes and Alleys” – Hayley Whitehead

One of my favourite things to shoot is the little sackboy models. There is just something fun about them and they take well to strobe lighting. So great for having playing around with lights. The Idea for this shot came from my friend Tom Gentle who had recently just got himself some strobes and did [...]

For around Seven year’s now I have had a companion that many people would not understand: she is feathered, smart and she has me under her thumb. Many people ask me why not a cat, why not a dog. What’s the point in getting a bird? Like a dog she’s loyal and wants nothing but [...]

My father passed away just before Christmas of 2010. Afterwards my mother had us all go through some of his things. The only think that caught my eye was the shaving kit he had been issued when he enlisted with the Royal Canadian Regiment in the 1950′s. During the past year I have become more [...]
