My tilted view of Vivid.

I dropped in on the Vivid festival in Sydney the other night and set myself a challenge – to photograph Sydney in a unique way and to somehow differentiate myself from the masses of photographers, tripods and “L glass”. I’ll post a few of those images over the next couple of weeks as I make time. They are experimental, unusual and certainly not to everyone’s taste. I’m not even sure how I feel about some of them. Let me know what you think.

More than 90% of my site’s visitors have screens capable of high resolutions, at least 1280 pixels across, so as of today I’m upgrading to cater primarily for higher resolutions. If you’re one of the few with a lower resolution screen, I’m sorry, you’re probably seeing ugly horizontal scroll bars at the bottom of the page.

If you’re one of the vast majority, I hope you enjoy my site even more in high definition.

God rays

I’ve been doing some photography for a Sydney golf course recently, the same one that featured in my old website header.  They need some new shots of the course and clubhouse after they’ve finished installing new weather/sun sails.  They also needed some food photography for advertising and their website, that isn’t normally my thing but there is a certain appeal to my pedantic nature.  I spent an evening out there a couple of weeks ago salivating over several gorgeous meals and the photos I took turned out pretty well and I might post some soon.  Early this week I thought the sails would be close to finished so I headed over for a quick scouting mission, to find the best angles and take a photo or two.  The sails weren’t up yet, the spines had only just been painted.  But while I was standing there, this happened.

Sydney fireworks

I took this photograph of the fireworks over the Sydney Harbour bridge on New Years Eve from the roof of an apartment block in Kings Cross (thanks to my good friend Adam)  I recently reprocessed it to have it printed onto a 30 inch canvas and I really wish I had done it sooner.  I’m also doing a limited edition print run.  Send me an email if you’re interested in hanging a print of this on your wall.
