The Chair!

I have been looking for an photo idea based on an old 'P' shaped wing back chair, two weeks ago i found it! it's a little bit taller than i really want, but you gotta grab what you can, when you can. what it means is that i can use this chair/prop for an idea of a photo set on punk/rockabilly girls. similar to SG (but without the porn). so once i move house i will set up a studio (of sorts) to utilise this new prop and get these ideas out from my head and onto the screen. this will be interesting ;)

it will need a quick clean-up (very dusty) as it's sitting in a warehouse at the moment, and i will need a coloured background, still deciding on what colour that should be..white or red??? paper or cloth??? comments?? what do you think it needs?

 I had the chance to go shoot a visiting Sydney band KISSteria last weekend, they came over for 3 short but sweet shows around Perth. Obviously they are a KISS cover band, and have been doing this show for something like nearly 15yrs! they had all the clothes/boots/makeup spot on and sounded great! although the venue was small, and was a sunday night, and on school holidays but still they rocked out and made the place shake!! didn't realise there were still some hardcore kiss fans out there, but there are! and i wasn't the youngest for a change! this all adds to my gig/night portfolio, so i wanted to see how i went with a unknown band/venue. i think i did ok considering!
remember, images are clickable for hi-res!

some young fans!

july is...

July is looking to be a busy one. found out i have to move house as this place is being sold, never like moving. but it should mean more space to get my cars fixed and someplace to shoot without leaving the property!
  Last month a did a 21st party shoot which went well, wont post any pics of that but they like them so thats good! also did a pregnacy shoot for a friend that also went quite well, especially when you hire a studio to shoot in. i must say having all the lights and remote triggers all there for you is the best!
 And did a pub gig in midland and one just last weekend around the corner, which was good to get a handle on high ISO work and fast paced action in low light with both the band and the crowd. now if i could just get more paid work i can update this slow computer to handle processing all these photos!

and now for some pics!

 and last sat..

they said i had to keep it hard??!

holy sh.....!

crowd motivator!

 and a couple from the pregnancy shoot....

so there you go. busy as bro!!!
Oh, and there wont be any Model photos this month as i left the camera home and went as a model instead!!
it was a 'Mods Vs Rocker' theme, so i went as a leather jacketed rocker!!!! now THAT was fun! ;)

catch ya!
