  • CUTTHROAT Mag.

    It’s still always a thrill to see anything I write or photograph as a finished printed product. You may have seen the powerful image of Jackii Brown, with her cutthroat razer and buzz-clippers in hand, on my website or social media. Well, that image is now used in a double page spread feature article in Australia’s most prestigious, industry specific, barber magazine: CUTTHROAT. Jackii was interviewed by the magazine and two of my photos were featured…

  • Jime Litwalk - Ink Master - Season 3

    Back in April, I went along to the Rites of Passage 2016 Tattoo, Music & Art Festival to photograph for Desert Highways. Being a virgin of the tattoo, I was a little daunted as I first walked through the beautiful old Melbourne Exhibition building while live human canvases happily (and in some cases, painfully) got themselves a new tat. But, after a short while, I soon became accustomed to the buzzing sounds of the guns…

    I am fortunate enough to have many good friends from all the different facets of life–even more fortunate to have had many of them since pre-school. Musician and family man, Jeff Morrison, and I went to pre-school, primary school and high-school together along with a bunch of other lads who we still have frequent contact. This is Jeff with his beautiful family at our most favourite holiday place on Earth, Byron Bay. #family #surfer #surfing…

  • Got up early to catch the sunrise (doesn’t happen often… Not a morning person) on the Gold Coast, Queensland. Unfortunately, there were no clouds at all near the direction of the sun, which makes a pretty boring photograph. Luckily I had a local model lined up for a shoot! #beach #sunrise #model #femalemodel #goldcoast #highrise #morning #surf #surfersparadise #queensland #landscape #cityscape #photography

  • Shooting at night can often be a struggle especially when you are limited by the lack of gear. I bought a couple of off camera flashes with me on the tour so I could photograph bands and models at any location and time of the day. Here I am with Beau Jones shooting on a flight of stairs with music posters covering each side of the walls. We had quite the crowd looking on at…
