Portrait of Céline at week 17 of her pregnancy on both digital and film cameras.
On our recent return to Switzerland I was fortunate to have received a very thoughtful gift… an original Polaroid 600SE (Aka. GOOSE) kit complete with three Mamiya press lenses (Merci vielmals Roswitha & Fredi). The camera has quite some history backing it, once belonging to Roswitha’s father when he worked as a professional photographer for the Prince of Liechtenstein.
Yesterday I was able to test out the capabilities of this beast over at the skateboarding offices of Project Distribution. I was so stoked with the crispness and tonal detail of the final images (shot on peel apart Fuji FP-100C) and really now looking forward to introducing this camera into my current workflow. Being a huge supporter of film I think it will compliment nicely some future photographic endeavors… Welcome to the family Goose!
Some shots from a weekend spent up at Jayson & Jady’s beach shack on the Sunny Coast. Amazing food, company & time surfing the point at Moffat’s, thanks guys for the hospitality we’ll be up again real soon for a paddle.
Situated on the northern coast of NSW, Evans Head, a small quaint coastal community of friendly sea spirited people, one of the few towns left untouched along this vast stretch of coastline.
We had the privilege of taking a week away and sheltering down in a friends family beach shack. A week of no distractions, no phones, computers or televisions. Just a week of surfing, eating healthy, exercising and relaxing. A week which felt like a month to be honest.
With our present day, fast pace lifestyles, it is important we don’t forget to take time out, reflect and just take a look around, for what is here today wont necessarily be tomorrow. This is my ode to Evans Head and the simple things in life.
Above a short film and below a selection of stills I shot which best summarizes our time passed at Evans… Enjoy!
Good friends and USA residents Carla and Todd, travelled back to Australia to renew their vows for family and friends in a picturesque beach ceremony on Gold Coast’s North Burleigh beach.
Along with my usual DSLR getup I packed a Polaroid SX-70 loaded with some expired TZ-Artistic film to give another take on the day. Film when coupled with digital shots gives something a little more intimate and unique… as well when framed 2up make a great gift!
I hope you enjoy some of these select photographs from the day as much as I did taking them.
