Sleepy Tea – The Place Where We Lay

Sooo ridiculously happy with how my double exposure photograph turned out on the cover of Sleepy Tea‘s new EP ‘The Place Where We Lay’.

So happy / proud to have been a part of such an awesome musician’s journey.

Check it out and listen to it HERE – it sounds fukn awesome.

Nakamarra.

I recently helped to shoot a clip for Hiatus Kaiyote, a neo soul future beats band from Melbourne Australia.
We shot it while traveling from Adelaide to Alice Springs (the quintessential ‘outback’).

Orion from The Native Press lent me his Mamiya rb67 medium format monster and I snapped
some pics in between video shooting sessions. Shooting 6×7 negatives is addictive.
once you go to that quality shooting 35mm is almost annoying.
(and here i am, the medium format converted show pony blabbing away!)

I’ll totally post the finished clip on here when it’s done.
I’ll also sort through the digital pics I took and post some of those
(hopefully before the years out)

Film = Kodak Portra 160.
Camera = Mamiya rb67

Tin Can Radio.

I recently did a photoshoot for Tin Can Radio, a band from Brisbane Australia.
The whole vibe that they give off really reminds me of bands from the late eighties and early nineties – just that raw ‘here we are’ group of boys doin their thing, testosterone in the air which is a good thing! (so many fucking bands are so soft n safe these days walking around in boat shoes looking like they just got off the set of the OC). I tried to capture a bit of that loose poppin’ attitude with 2 main ideas.

1. Setup mobile studio paper wall w/ lights & pull the camera back to include everything in the shot.
2. Create a juxtaposition by smashing old televisions w/ sledgehammers on a cool fresh afternoon somewhere relaxing.

what do you think?
