What even is a "best of" list?
Whatever it is, this isn't one.
Writing a “best of” list is fraught with danger. I don’t necessarily think this is a comprehensive list of my best work this year, because I love so many photos that aren’t themselves ‘photographically wonderful’. I’ve delivered so many images this year to people, and some of their favourites would be in that same category too. Things aren’t meant to be perfect because then they’d be boring.
This is more a journal of the year, mixing in some good-times, some stuff I’m really proud of, and some stuff that I loved being there for.
To all the people who trusted me in 2015 - thank you.
Thank you for seeing yourself in my work.
The more these interactions happen, the more it’s normalised for me and others who see the work we make together, the better all the wedding and family albums of the future will be.
Here’s to next year and the one after that too.
May the Force be with you.
I was so excited to go see this little guy. I photographed Brigette and Steve's Hobart wedding in January last year, and one year on (nearly to the day) Oliver was born. He turned one month old over the weekend, and it was a great opportunity for me to spend some time documenting another milestone in their lives.
I didn't get to do one of those seemingly obligatory "2013 - A Year in Pictures" posts, for which I'm sorry. It was an amazing time, with amazing clients and lovely people who supported my work. It makes sense for me to share a few right now though...
I might start with some street photos.
I obviously love my street photography. I also love hanging out with people who love each other...
I photographed some really cool actors, musicians and other creative people.
Also hung out with some lovely families and made photographs they will treasure for a long time to come.
There were many other lovely moments for me, and most of them were due to these two people being in my life.
2014 is shaping up to be a really great year. I've already met with many lovely couples who want me to hang out with them on their special day, and can't wait to meet more!
Here's to the new year.
