Pix Update – Just for Fun

Despite my broken foot, I’ve been a busy bee shooting over the last few weeks. It’s amazing how much you can cheat walking, running and even single leg squats when you’re incapacitated. Although some of my efforts required a fair bit of voltarengel, lots of ice and a strong resolve. But I think the end […]

Boys on Breakwall

Sometimes, simplicity is best. I love the perspective in the shot below. It’s now available in my online shop; just click on the photo to open. You’ll be able to grab anything from a postcard through to a mounted and framed wall print. And if you’d like any of my other pictures that aren’t uploaded […]

DJ at Dusk

Photography can be unpredictable.

Talk to Eugene Tan from Aquabumps and you’ll realise you’ll have to be an early bird to catch the shots. I got up at 4.30am on the day the photo below was taken to photograph sharks and write about shark diving. But instead, the highlight of my day happened well before the sun had even […]

Dawn Chorus

As an overnight reporter, you sometimes get sent to jobs that aren’t all blood and gore. Very rarely, Friday night police round photographer Gordon McCormiskie and I would get to go and see something beautiful. Leaving the bowels of Western Sydney or seedy Kings Cross behind, we got to head to Bondi Beach for the […]

The Famous Spiegeltent

Smoke and Mirrors AT visits The Famous Spiegeltent, the celebrated touring circus-cum-cabaret hall, for a memorable night under the big top. Words by Sol Walkling, who paid her own way and visited anonymously. The magic of The Famous Spiegeltent is all smoke and mirrors. Not only does the circus-like venue appear in multiple Australian cities […]
