The last 8 months has been a whirlwind of opportunity and work, but I haven't taken the time to create as much as I would like. Recently though I had the great pleasure of attending Blackpowder and Bloodlines LARP in Melbourne and capture some of my amazingly talented friends. This series was a bit of a learning process (confession, I've never used Photoshop before) that I'll take you through as I post them!
Remembering last minute I should be practicing my craft more often

FAQ why don't I take more self portraits? Because the Nikon remote app works as well as a signpost for the blind. Heading back to work in Melbourne end of the week!

'Dawn of the New World, Mary and Rory O'Moore' Over the weekend I attended Melbourne's newest LARP Blackpowder & Bloodlines and had a blast! I got so lost in my own character I struggled to find the spare energy to photograph more.
Say what you will about Melbourne winter weather, but overcast clouds makes for great natural lighting Model: @ashitabagga
The nice man from city council let us keep shooting without a permit, probably because he felt bad for us lugging the wardrobe around Model: @ashitabagga
I'm only about a third of the way through all the photos taken at @swordcraftlarp Autumn Quest and I'm feeling the editing fatigue. Next event i definitely want to organise some actual shoots
Just over halfway through the event and wanting to dig through the photos already. Green Avatar "Saim" at @swordcraftlarp Quest

Ellie @ellie.cox and Alex @alexweckeshuck in September. We were all feeling unwell and tired and the weather was turning terrible, but we decided to hold up the traffic of Chapel street anyway 1 of 2
Found this photo while cleaning up some circus shoots to post tomorrow and I'm surprised I missed it the first time. We were actually getting kicked out of Melbourne Zoo's aquarium so they could close for the night . . . . . #melbournezoo #deepblue #melbournephotography #aquarium #sillouette #candidphotography #tourist #zoo
Pretty much my go to lens is a 85mm f1.8 prime. Not the easiest of lenses to work with on a walkabout but it's a non threatening lens and makes people look amazing #85mm #raybans #larping #larp #melbournephotography #candidportrait #blackandwhiteportrait #melbournestyle
