Shibuya, we meet again…
Will be posting a few shots from my recent trip to Tokyo over the next few days.
Celebrating World Photography Day… and 200 followers! Thanks for the support, it means a lot.
Winter is coming… For us in the Southern Hemisphere anyways.
This is a old photo I captured in Seoul, South Korea during the first snowfall of the season. The snow started coming down as soon as we got to the palace. Pretty cool.
My new bass guitar. It’s an Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray in a tangerine pearl finish. One of my dream instruments.
Haven’t been posting as regularly because I’ve been working 9-hour days on the other side of town for the past month and a bit. Generally, I haven’t been able to get out at take photos anywhere near as much as I’d like. This sucks, but writing does a better job at paying the bills than photography at the moment (albeit, barely hah).
Anyway, here is a photograph I took while I was in Shanghai. I had a pretty dope time skating and hanging out with some pretty cool people while over there. Like other urbanized cosmopolitan Asian cities, there’s always something cool, unique, or just plain weird around every street corner.
Currently saving up for my next holiday. A return to Japan? Maybe…
This photo pretty much represents my life at present. An unorganized, shit storm…
Melbourne’s famed Hosier Lane getting another late-night facelift.
There’s something intriguing about this busker. Something that makes you curious about his story… Well, at least to me anyway.
This is Viet-My (also known as Meezy, Pixie-Bitch, VM, Vee, or Ravenskar for the fanboys).
We acknowledge that we often give each other a hard time. She thinks I’m a loser, I think she’s loser. However, despite our bickering and often trivial disagreements, we always seem to see the funny side and have a laugh at the end of the day. I’m pretty lucky to have her in my life as both a close friend and inspiration.
She happens to draw/paint pretty things, so you can check out her work at her website vm-bui.com (Don’t forget to follow.)
I did a art trade with a group of my friends a few months back and this is the photograph I ended up taking for the buddy I got paired up with. It was my first time experimenting with light painting techniques.
The theme of our trade of ‘puppets’. I concluded that a guitar is a just like a puppet in that you control it with your hands and fingers, and it tells a story using strings.
She said she liked it which is always nice. In return, she painted me a pretty dope watercolour painting.
I took this particular photograph in Seoul, South Korea. It was in the middle of winter and my camera/lenses would actually pick up condensation due to temperature change when moving from outside to indoors. It was that freakin’ cold…
Quick tip -In order to avoid condensation when photographing in uber cold temperatures, you will need to seal your camera in an airtight bag when moving around. This way condensation will form on the bag instead of the camera, as the air and camera gradually acclimatize to the same temperature.
Fuck yeah, Science!
Another photo I took in Tokyo. I felt like I spent so much time in trains and subway stations while I was there. We visited a new district of Tokyo every day and we became quite familiar with the subway system. My friends and I would wake up hungover, and head straight to Shinjuku station every morning during our stay (grabbing not-so-nutritious convenience store breakfasts along the way).
It’s probably one of my favourite photographs that I’ve taken. Dat Nostalgia … Hope you guys like it too.
Taken while on my skate trip in Shanghai, China. In my opinion, it is one of best skate spots in the world and I highly recommend it to any skaters looking for a holiday destination.
Shame I wasn’t game enough to try and carve this tunnel at full speed (it was fassstt). I probably would’ve ended up looking like a bruised turd at the bottom.
This is my dog. His name is Pocksy. Making him stand still proved extremely difficult, so I ended bribing him with Pringles…
