Oh dear, look at me, neglecting the blog! Well when real life is kinda crazy, the online life does get sidelined. I’ve been caught up doing all sorts of exciting photography projects.
One from a long, long time ago (gee, it almost sounds like the start of a fairy tale) was a shoot I did with a friend actually. Usually I keep work and friends separate, mainly because it’s tricky to take the sort of photos your friends want or need when it’s someone you are used to chatting to behind the camera. Most photos end up with a lot of half-open, mid-speaking mouths because we can’t stop the blah blah blah. But my friend Paul – well I’ve known him since primary school (yes, that long ago! And in Perth too). And he is an amazing blues musician, so when he appealed for me to take some photos of him for his upcoming cd, I thought why not. Especially if it meant I was able to receive a complimentary copy!
And after having to listen to him tell me how he didn’t feel comfortable in front of the camera, I shushed him, turned the camera on and shot away. Check him out! He’s a natural!
And if you’d like to check out his music, then please click on here and be transported into the world of award winning blues. He’s awesome at what he does (and this is coming from an indie pop tragic).
