As many of you have already gleaned from the myriad of entertaining posts recently dropped onto my Facebook page, I’ve moved from Albion into an entertaining batch-pad/video-audio-photo-studio/optics-chem-lab/astrophysics lab in Jindalee (click for map).
I’m living with Mikael and Dan Altoff, and downstairs in the dungeon we hide another housemate called Cameron. Cam’s the night shift manager of the hotel at the Casino. Mikael is doing his Masters in Astrophsics/Education and is working on the Impact Australia Documentary here and also creates specialised coatings for solar panels through his day job at Uni Qld. He’s also in a band but I cannot recall what it is called in its current incarnation. Dan is the DJ from Crystals at The Beat on weekends as well so music here is a strong focus, you can always hear something piping from one corner of the house or studio.
If you’re on Facebook, add Impact Australia to get regular updates on the progress of the doco. Here’s a link to the first part of the previews for the entire tour in HD video.
So, aside from having moved home and studio across town, I’m also now doing design and photography for Forensic Press LLC, a new publishing firm a long time friend (and formerly my crim profiling lecturer) has started which is focussed on criminology so expect a fair few posts to come of a forensic criminolgy slant.
I am still shooting for the clubs on the weekends for now but it looks as though the commercial work will allow me to let that slide in the coming months. I do look forward to regaining my weekends! In the meantime, clubs like Blink and Trash will still get my Friday and Saturday night attention and score shots like this one of Lynchmada:
Tomorrow night I am kicking off a quick tour with Jeff Martin and the Armada, Brisbane (The Hi-Fi, West End), then The Troubadour (Valley Mall), Gold Coast and Byron Bay with me shooting stills and my housemate Mikael shooting HD Video for the Armada website. This will be the fifth or sixth time I have worked on tours by Jeff though the first of these was when he was singing with The Tea Party in 1999 and I was interviewing him then for the Courier-Mail instead of taking pics. Jeff’s manager is brilliant for making sure that the lighting is what is required for best photographic results and I look forward to working with the usual crew again.
As things are settling from the move I am getting the chance to catch up on some older work that previously proved difficult to do, and my new studio space means I can again get my teeth into fashion and other photographic projects. I have a few burlesque projects up my sleeve and hope to string a few of the local talented performers into some spectacular roles I have in mind. I’m developing something of an obsession for WWII period style and you should expect to see quite a lot of this in the next year or so.
