A Sunday funday with my nephew Sammy & Benny down at the local skatepark. So stoked to see the little guy trying to be just like his dad… sessioning skateparks is in his genes!
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!
For the second consecutive year running Brisbane played host to the ‘King of Coops’, Australia’s skateboarding calender event held at Coorparoo Skatepark and proudly hosted by close family members Project Distribution. The sun was shining, the snags were sizzling and if you didn’t make it down you missed out on some of the best skateboarding Australia had to offer! This years crown went to the not so little anymore, Joel McIlroy with his arsenal of super smooth, mind blowing moves, a well deserved champion. Below are some of my photographs from the day, be sure to click for a bigger view.

We were recently in Melbourne for a night and got a glimpse of Max’s public installment with Sony / Vice Magazine and the NEX Project. Max makes some pretty sweet jeans and did I mention he’s a great bloke too so make sure you check out his site notetoself.com.au
