2015 Instant Replay

2015 had it’s moments around the world.

Here is a bunch of awesomeness that happened in front of me. Being able to capture moments in people’s lives that they will look back on and laugh, cry or love gives me a great sense that I’m doing something worthwhile. It doesn’t change the world but it has an effect on the individuals that I encounter and build relationships with. It becomes part of their history, their story that they get to share with their loved ones and future family. It helps build identity and validates a life where struggles are common. As trends come and go, photography can preserve the culture and technology of the time. I freaking love creating these documents for people that are interesting not only for them, but others as well.

I couldn’t do what I do without the help of Olivia Davies (follow her on instagram @oliviabettina). We met at university in 2006, she had a boyfriend, I had a girlfriend, that old chestnut. But a few years later after an awkward Uni carpark kiss we locked it in. Liv has been second shooting and doing post production with me for 6 years now. She didn’t have a passion for the business side of photography and preferred to keep it purely as an art form, so was quite happy to help me out, without going head to head. (She could have, but just wasn’t feeling it.) Instead she has gone back to University to chase down her other passion in music. She is doing amazing things already, majoring in Composition, she has already won multiple competitions and had her music workshopped and performed by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra’s Chamber ensemble (check her Music out on Sound Cloud – https://soundcloud.com/empty-chair-sounds ) Her images are all through this blog post too. I really can’t thank her enough.
