what feeds me, controls me

Chris does not just model, this bloke also acts, writes and sings. I  shot with Chris while in LA for my holiday. I photographed him in a dodgy apartment in Northridge which I found from Craiglist because I didn't have a lot of money. So Chris, if you are reading this I apologise for that. I hope it will be in a better location if I happen to shoot with you again. I know I shoot unusually (perhaps unprofessionally in some people’s eyes) but this is how I make my pictures. I don't use flash or any lighting equipment because I believe nothing can surpass the beauty of natural light. I'm told many times that I often make models do unusual things but somehow that little crazy moment brimmed with beauty. This is how I bloody give my soul to a superficial industry, turning it into something organic and real.

summer memory

Just a few weeks before my trip to the US, we drove to a magical place in south Sydney to shoot a music video for an upcoming artist. I was the photographer. We had so much fun shooting from dawn till dusk. It was exhausting at the end of the day but all were happy with the magic we made. These are a few pictures I snapped between shoot.
