Cyclist - 5th June 2012 - Story-Bridge Brisbane, Australia

Call it luck, or a fluke, or anticipatory experience, but I love the timing that allowed for the cyclist to be framed by the bridge structure

Bowenwood - 23rd June 2007 - Bowen, QLD

Bowen was so happy to have the production of 'Australia' in town, that they created their own version of the hollywood sign on the local water-reservoir.

I remember chatting with the unit stills-photographer about his amazing photography, being absolutely fascinated with his skills.

Knowing less-than-nothing about computer processing images, he gave me a few basic concepts to play with, and off I went to mess with my photos.

I really like the over-the-top 's-curve' applied to this photo's histogram.

Baz Directs - 3rd September 2007 - somewhere about an hour-and-a-half from Kununurra, WA

This was towards the end of our Location shooting, and I think the Main Boom Op had just returned to Sydney, I was bumped up from Utility.

I find it both hilarious, and a little silly, that our set safety supervisor is 'helping' Baz maintain his balance atop the truck.

'Speakeasy' set - 17th October 2011 - Fox Studios Sydney, NSW

Standing by on-set 'The Great Gatsby'. 

There is no way that any photo of the sets could be less than spectacular.

Gelato - 11th september 2011 - Circular Quay, Sydney Australia

Stopped for a quick icy-treat while walking around the touristy areas with a co-worker.

Captured with a Nikon D7000, 18-200 (at 44mm), f11, 1/500th sec, ISO 3200

(no idea why I used such inappropriate settings. Might have been due to the fact that I wasn't really a thoughtful photographer, it's mostly about the framing. So I might have just used the last settings the camera was on? Essentially over did both the shutter speed, and the depth of field for what I was trying to achieve, and the result is a whole bunch of unnecessary sensor noise)

positivity #17

It seems as though storms knock out the power in our little town much more frequently this time of year.

So - feeling positive about the non-electrical forms of cooking/heating ;) 

...and that the lines never seem to take too long to repair.

Climbing the Bridge - 20th April 2010 - Story Bridge, Brisbane QLD

I was fortunate enough to be able to capture this group climbing the bridge while on a photo-walk around the city.

Love everything about this picture - from the framing, to the groups position, to the dark and moody skies.

Wyndham Races - 12th August 2007 - Wyndham, WA

A bunch of the crew took a weekend day trip to go and see one of the only commercial race-tracks still operating on dirt.

It was a smorgasbord of visual awesomeness
