Shoot for artist Deborah Kelly



Last year I was asked by artist Deborah Kelly to shoot 20 nudes as part of her work for the 19th Biennale of Sydney, currently on display at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
We spend 2 days shooting in my studio in Sydney and travelled to Melbourne for an additional day.
20 incredible people with incredible stories!
Go and have a look.

Good Times!



Took these shots waiting outside the sound stage we were shooting on with Albert Watson.
Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, February 2005. 

That's Tasja.

Good Times!

Saint Lucia




I took these shots years ago on Saint Lucia. 
After an early morning start we were on break, waiting for the afternoon light
when I started hanging out with a gang of boys on the beach.
I was definitely cramping their style.

24546 images



I recently checked the metadata of some of my images to see
how many times I had pressed the button. This was at the end of June, actually 
June 26th - I was at 188208 images. OK, not bad.

My plan was to do a little post here when I hit 200K.

I checked again - a month later - July 26th.
Only to find out that I missed it by a couple of thousand.
Snap! 212754!

Than means that I took 24546 images in a month!

I have to say my Nikon equipment has never let me down.
Fingers crossed the shutter on this one stays in one piece a little while longer...

The 500mm Mirror...




... has finally arrived!
Used it for the first time about 13 years ago. 
I'll put it to the test during the next "We are Handsome" campaign tomorrow.
It's not the most user friendly thing... the mirror design allows it to be very small and light for a 500mm. Great! But that also means that putting in into focus is actual work.
And the F Stop is fixed at 8.
It comes with a set of five 39mm rear mount filters, UV and a B/W set.
Very sexy.

Pages Digital #92 out now




Shot this on my 1969 Leitax converted Leica Elmarit-R I 1:2.8 90mm lens. An all manual lens of course, it dictates a much slower pace - especially getting it into focus wide open. If you have Leica lenses head over to the wiki section of this page http://www.l-camera-forum.com/ . Although they are hard to handle if you are used to auto focus, it's even tougher after the conversion - you are shooting in constant stopped-down mode. Meaning at f11 in the studio it's pretty dark in your viewfinder...  frame, open up, focus, stop down, shoot... all handheld. I feel like a monkey in the zoo trying to keep its mind active - though nobody actually cares about how cool it really is... 42 year old lens? Come on, pretty cool!
