About two years ago I was able to photograph Meluxine while we were both in Sydney.
Something that both clients and other photographers are curious about is why I structure my pricing so differently to other photographers, so I thought I would talk a bit about why I chose this way and touch on copyright which plays a part of it.
The weekend before last I spent a couple of hours doing my last runs for the season down Eyre t-bar on Mt Perisher, while I didn't have my camera with me, I did have my phone which doesn't do too badly when I take the time to stop skiing and take a few photos - which is rare, I tend to not want to stop when skiing.
Normally when I go to Nightfest, it's primarily to photograph the performances. I usually plan out my night to get the chosen spots, have a couple of cameras, multiple lenses and a tripod. This year photographing it was not the main reason to go, I still took a camera and a monopod, but didn't go to my usual lengths of planning and gear.
Back in 2010 I was approached by Julius T Johnson to do a shoot. Julius has modelled around the world for a number of years and was living in Canberra at the time.
One of my favourite Canberra performers to photograph is Alison McGregor, she is a talented artist in a number of areas.
A couple of years ago I became aware of the Cairns underwater film festival, at the time all photos entered into it had to be taken within the area of the Great Barrier Reef so I wasn't able to enter, however last year there was a new international category. At the time I didn't find out until too late, but this year I was on the ball and entered. I'm pleased to be able to say that I was runner up in the creative category for 2014.

Diving back into the vault a bit, here are some photos with Evie from between 2010 and 2012.
Photos from June's Sass and Tease at the Loft.
Last weekend I won first place at the Nudes on Tap exhibition at the Tap Gallery with a print titled Angeldragonfly. On the night I was asked many of the same questions: Who was the model? What was she covered with? Who came up with the pose? and were there any other photos from the shoot? To answer the first and last questions, the model was Aingeal Rose, and here are some of the other photos from the shoot.
Just in time for tonight's performance, here are some photos from the April Shaken and Stirred at the Polit Bar Manuka.
A bit late, but better late than never, photos from April's Sass and Tease at the Loft.
A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to work with Canberra model Stefania, we've worked together a few times since, though not as often now that she is based in Melbourne.
I'm often asked what my favourite model, shoot or photo is, my usual answer is that there are far too many to choose from, which is correct. I find I like far too many of them for different reasons. One of my favourite photo shoots was a couple of years ago with Elaina Noir on one of my trips to Sydney.
On my last trip to Queensland I stopped off at the Gold Coast to photograph Lily Jay, as it was her first nude shoot we did a few different styles.
Back in late 2008 I was approached by former Canberra model (now Sydney based) Joshua Seven as he had seen my work and wanted to know if I was interested in working with him.
Anne Duffy is a Canberra based model whose modelling has taken her around the country and overseas. Anne was the first model I photographed nude, and also the first fetish shoot.
It's almost time for the next Shaken and Stirred at the Polit Bar Manuka, so to get you warmed up, here are some photos from February's performance.
A while ago I was talking to Christine Dengate, a Sydney based photographer about underwater photography. I asked if she would be interested in modelling underwater for me on my next trip up from Canberra, to which she said yes.
One of the models I had a chance to work with early on was Candace Nirvana on one of her trips out to Australia.
The Sass and Tease collective had their first show at the Loft at the Duxton on Valentines Day, with guest performers Dolores Daiquiri, Sheena Miss Demeanour, Pepper Grinde and Sugar Starr.
As a long time admirer of the aerial arts, I've wanted to do a nude aerial photo shoot for quite some time. Last year when Lilly Rae visited Canberra I finally got the opportunity to do one.
Years ago, the first event I photographed was the Canberra Fringe Festival, it was a pleasure to be able to do so again this year.
One of the things I like most about photographing nudes is the way different lighting plays across the body, photographing underwater adds another dimension to the lighting.
My name is Karl and I am aged in my early fifties.
Sometimes I will photograph someone who while being completely comfortable photographed nude, would prefer not to be recognized in the photos.
