CONNECTIONS BLOG

CONNECTIONS
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Shanghai Charm

I had fun buzzing around Shanghai on my last trip, shooting some lifestyle pics depicting a romantic day for a young couple. I think we got some lovely moments.

I love Shanghai as it is so varied! From the old charm of the French Concession to the futuristic modernity and ultra premium feel of hotels in the Pudong. There is something interesting around each corner!

I think I’ll have to stay in the Ritz Carlton next trip, and have a more relaxed drink in their rooftop bar, Flair. It is pretty amazing!

A big thank you to my incredible team in Shanghai, Luca for styling and co-producing, Miki for hair and makeup, Oleg for photography assisting, and the models, John and Yanan from Essee Model Management. I hope to work with you again soon.

Summer Nights

Thirty years! Angela and I celebrated our anniversary recently at the lovely Bathers Pavilion in Balmoral. The atmosphere on a warm summer night was the perfect backdrop for a special evening with my sweetheart. We both love the casual elegance of Bathers and needless to say, the food as well. Serge and his team are behind one of Sydney’s gems!

Now I just need to convince them to let us have the upstairs as our studio and apartment!

The boundary between day and night.

What happens in the shadows of our minds? What happens in the boundary between day and night. Everything seems so clear in the day, but like the deepening dusk, doubts creep in as the sun sinks below the horizon.

What is that special feeling of wonder, longing, apprehension, or uncertainty that the night brings? Is it the desire you are too scared to speak about in the day?
