Africa : behind the scenes

blog-africa-08

I love being able to go back through the archives of photographs taken on the side of trips and being surprised by how interesting they seem when you’ve had a little time and distance. All the images below were taken exactly three years ago on a massive trip around the globe shooting for Kinross Gold. Our small crew roamed [read more]

Well, hello there… we’re Stampede.

FINAL with logo

It’s profound what can evolve from a conversation at the fade of a three-day night out… Thirteen years ago, myself and Alex Feggans badly line-danced our way around The Calgary Stampede – a rodeo in Alberta, Canada. Through the thick haze of a long night that’d been, we contemplated our futures and decided that one day, somehow, we’d work together makin stuff.

Fresh off the proverbial press is this little ditty – the latest TVC & Print Campaign for the Royal Automobile Club of Tasmania (RACT). With creative direction by Duke Edward Carveth and his talented troop from BWM Melbourne – this was without a doubt one of the most fun and rewarding campaigns I’ve ever had the privilege of working on. Co-directed with my main-man, [read more]

Fresh off the press is a spanking new print and motion piece for 2C Artist Management.

For this assignment I wanted to do things a little bit old school. Instead of shooting two separate images and retouching them together to create this ‘split personality’, we did everything though camera with clever styling (Monique Moynihan, 2C) and makeup (Budi, 2C). No cutting, no comping, no Photoshop trickery. I’d love to tell you [read more]

Last week was an absolute cracker and too good to be locked inside a studio all day. So, we got outside and celebrated what it means to be ‘Strayan – we had some fun in the sun as a test shoot for an upcoming assignment. A very tough day indeed…Bring on summer!
