What an extraordinary talent Matthew has, not only in photography but beyond the camera. Unfortunately alternative processes mostly are in the past, but Matthew brings them back to life.

I have known Andrew for a long time and he is one of the loveliest and most talented photographers I have come across. I have no doubt this will be an amazing exhibition.

Thursday 30th August 6pm Centre for Contemporary Photography

KIM SIMON (CA)
Curating Sticky Images in the context of TPW

Kim Simon will introduce Toronto's Gallery TPW and share a thread of her curatorial work investigating an ethics of showing and looking, in relation to the aesthetics of troubling images. Simon will discuss her exhibitions and discursive programs looking at work by Polish artist Artur Zmijewski, American documentary photographer Eric Gottesman, filmmaker Renzo Martens, and a group exhibition looking at the relation between difficult knowledge, narrative abstraction, affect and thought in works by Chanarin and Broomberg (UK), Jannicke Laker (Norway), Ken Gonzales-Day (US), John Moore (US) and Paolo Canevari (It).

Kim Simon is Curator of Gallery TPW in Toronto. Founded in 1980 as a non-profit venue for photographic practices, Gallery TPW is committed to a media-specific but now expanded mandate, addressing the vital role that images play in contemporary culture and exploring the exchange between photography and time-based media.

Kim Simon's visit to Australia is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts International Visitors Program, in association with Artspace, Sydney and Contemporary Art Spaces Tasmania.

I've been in Broome now about 9 years and 4 years ago I picked up my camera again and I felt, and still do, feel drawn to the homeless and less advantaged people in my hometown. This is one of the first images I took in 2008 and it got published in a big article in the The National Indigenous Times Newspaper.
I regularly go out and about and spend time with these people. I hope next year I can dedicate more time and my goal is to self publish a book as well.

Here are some photo shoot highlights for me this month! Food stylist extraordinaire, Lee Blaylock and I ventured over to Newstead to shoot some decadent winter warmer desserts in Greg Hatton’s workshop. And a lovely collaboration with SanCerre’s designer to capture her upcoming collection of clothing, bags, boots + jewels.

IN THE SHADOW OF THE KING

I met Lenny at this year’s Elvis Festival in Parkes, NSW.  He lives with his family in country NSW and performs as an aboriginal Elvis tribute artist.
I was photographing Elvis fans and after shooting an Indian Elvis version a guy tapped me on the shoulder. He said: “If you want to photograph a different Elvis, I have someone for you.”
Lenny’s brother, his 8 year old red head and white skin foster child and me waited on a bench in the park while Lenny got changed into his Elvis outfit in the public toilets.
Lenny is quite shy and a little disappointed, as he couldn’t get a gig on stage at this year’s festival. He explains to me that he calls himself “In the shadow of The King” because of his skin color.
Lenny posed proud in his bright white Las Vegas suit and rewarded me with his golden sache for taking time to photograph him.

I met Sally as part of some HeadOn seminars in Sydney, where she was talking about her ideas on laying out folios. I really liked her creativity and different (to me) take on this. She had a look at my folio and pointed out some pretty obvious things that could be improved. I booked a day with her and it was a great experience. You instantly know when you gel with someone, as their ideas and advice are all welcome because they get you. The whole day was a meeting of like minds, and I found it very inspiring! The resulting folio is not what I would have put out there, because I was creating folios of what I think my (potential) clients wanted to see. What I ended up with is a folio for clients to see who I am as a photographer. I think Sally's experience in the industry and visual literacy generated a lot of trust, and I think the result will be unique for every photographer, because every photographer is unique. And I think that is what we want others to see ultimately!

Shoot summary:
This was a series of photos for an annual report for Global Food Equipment. GFE sells their large-scale kitchen equipment her ego Australia to Coles and also around the world. This was a 6 hour shoot documenting company staff engaging in their daily routines, serving client and servicing equipment. I took an assist with me to help carry and setup gear. We shot over 10 locations at the warehouse and used available light balanced with canons new 600ex speed light. The wireless and on camera control works amazing. The brief also asked for specific post production on the files so I treated them in Lightroom with a soft, desaturated duotone look to demonstrate an emotive, humble, artisan quality.

Hayley Wilson is now doing baby portraits amongst her other work.

"Baby portraits are something that many new parents talk about but rarely get around to it.
It is a special time in a child's life that lasts only a few months and before you know it they have grown up.
People don't really think of a photograph as a family heirloom, but to me that's exactly what they are.
That short window of time is something you can never get back.
It is my goal to craft beautiful photographs that you will treasure for the rest of your life and one day hand down to your children."

Mauro and I have been working together on his portfolio since he arrived in Australia from Brazil several years ago.

I love working with him, his energy and enthusiasm is contagious.

Each time we meet we have a really clear focus on the next area Mauro wants to approach with his photography. It may be Advertising Agencies or Direct Clients.

This folio is directed at the Hotel Industry and we had many hours together sorting through thousands of images and here are 3 of my favourite pages.
