Hungry Ghosts

August 8, 2014

A few weeks back I sweated Violent Soho on their Sold Out Australian tour shooting the shows in Melbourne and Brisbane,  Legends all round in the Violent Soho camp as well as Smith St Band, Lucas Barasi, High Tension, and Malakyte.
There is a shot towards the end of the gallery that I am doing a limited edition A2 fine art print on Canson Etching Edition.  Limited to 25 + 2 AP prints.  You can scope it here  http://www.kanyelens.com/products/violent-soho-2014.html

Also to see some exclusive photos, be sure to checkout this months edition of www.rollingstoneaus.com

Just one more house keeping note, I’m giving you something for free so I was wondering if you could do me a solid.  I usually I hate vote based photo competitions but even if lose, I can still win.   The top 6 voted images go into a judged competition.
Winner gets 6k in travel vouchers, losers get $500.  Now I’m not asking you to win me a potential holiday.

I’ve just spent 60k on a camera to start my new music photographical series, well this series is also going to include a lot of travel here and internationally.  I am lining up for some arts grants, but also this competition could really help me out too.  Go and give my photo a vote. Feel free to share this around, if you have a lot of social media followers, feel free to post out.  The last hurdle, the comp is going to want access to your Facebook but don’t worry it’s not going to post anything on your behalf or your friends it just needs to know for the voting process that it’s a real person. Voting ends Monday 11th August.

I’m an ideas man

April 29, 2014

I have ideas. Lots of ideas that usually come to me at inappropriate times. A lot of these ideas are good, but not great. A couple have stuck around, kept on rearing their annoying heads. And from all angles they still seem like good ideas. I’ve run these ideas past a few people (actually way to many people) and they seem to like them too. And since I have said that I’m going to do these projects, I have to do them. I’m not a gonna. You know those people, “I’m gonna do this and that and blah blah” but nothing ever happens.

So one of my ideas I need to shoot with a lot of megapixels. I can’t shoot multiple images and stitch them together so I’m going to shoot it on a Phase One and an 1Q 80 back. Bye bye 60k+

Nothing worthwhile ever comes easy, so to get me started and to ease the financial pain I’m selling a heap of my personal memorabilia. Pieces I’ve been hoarding for a few years, signed pictures I’ve taken of some of my favourite artists, a few pieces of vinyl (If you see more vinyl being added you know I’m desperate) and the odd shirt I’ve had lying around. I call this “The Beard Collection

So it’s kind of like a crowd funding campaign but not.

You can also help me out by purchasing a copy of Kanye Lens Vs Soundwave, a t-shirt or any other prints that have been left over from exhibitions. I also still have a heap of prints on display at Eureka Rebellion Trading 454 Smith St, Collingwood VIC 3066 that are not on this site, as well as a few in Knucklehead Shipping Co flag ship store 462 Oxford St, 2021 Paddinhgton

These projects are going to take a few years to shoot but I’m sure you will all find out what’s going on soon enough. I’m not very good at keeping secrets.

USA

February 4, 2014

For the first time in something like 10 years I found my self not having to work over NYE. Pyramid Rock Music Festival is where I would usually be but since it didn’t run this year, I decided to have some time off in USA.

I took some photos because I felt like it. A mixture of Neopan 1600 B/W and Sensia 100. First time I have shot colour film since I was studying. Feels good.

Neopan dreaming in Japan…

February 3, 2014

In 2012 I took a well earned break with a few weeks holidaying in Japan.  I’m definitely not one of those people who has a camera in hand everywhere they go so I had to talk myself into taking a camera with me.    Also not being one for holiday snaps I decided I would take my  Canon EOS1  35mm, 50 1.2 and shoot only B/W Neopan 1600 (I still have some rolls hoarded).  I thought I would challenge myself with shooting in monochrome as the abundance of colour in Japan would usually lend itself to shooting colour. It’s kind of nice to decide to take a photo, rather than having to take a photo.

Forgive my scanning, dust and hair seem to rule my life.
