Mariah Carey Australian Tour – 2013

Mariah Carey - Allphones Arena, Sydney

Mariah Carey – Allphones Arena, Sydney

Diva Supreme Mariah Carey graced Australia with a Summer holiday cum tour – her first in 14 years, playing Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast. In contrast to some reviews, Mariah thrilled fans with a set list full of #1 hits, hitting that whistle register several times and trying our fine cuisine on stage – Vegemite and VB. My highlight – Can’t Let Go, a cappella. Unfortunately, Melbourne’s show was cut short due to an 11pm curfew.

Hotel California Photoshoot

Stefany

Model: Stefany, MUA: Rachelle Games, Photo: Naomi Rahim

In collaboration with Brazilian-model, Stefany, and LA-based Makeup Artist, Rachelle Games, we created this Lana Del Rey-inspired editorial shoot in Downtown Los Angeles.

Across two locations in the Historic Core of LA (you may recognise the location from 500 Days of Summer), we brought to life a vibe of casual glamour. The wardrobe was styled by myself, using a mix of 60s-inspired fashion and retro hair and make-up by Rachelle. Doesn’t Stefany look like a Hollywood bombshell?

Once a year, Open House Melbourne unlocks the doors to give the public the opportunity to explore may of the city’s significant buildings. I love documenting urban life, Melbourne’s history and culture and coupled with OHM’s photography competition, it’s a not to be missed weekend on my calendar.

Florence + The Machine – Melbourne

Florence + The Machine

Florence Welch onstage at Rod Laver Arena

I first photographed Florence + The Machine during her 2010 Australian tour as an emerging artist in 2010. In 2012, she returned a supernova. Selling out her Rod Laver Arena show in Melbourne, I photographed the show for Life Music Media.

Evanescence & Blaqk Audio – Photos

Evanescence

Amy Lee – Rod Laver Arena

Corseted goths and pleather-clad kids came out of the woodwork to see Evanescence at Rod Laver Arena last night. Evanescence returned to Australia for an arena tour after a five year hiatus. Lead vocalist Amy Lee put on an energetic show, with her commanding vocals and the band’s lush orchestral arrangements. Bring Me To Life ended their main set on high, but it was the hauntingly beautiful acoustic rendition of My Immortal that brought the house down. Check out my Evanescence & Blaqk Audio (Davey Havok) gallery on Life Music Media and in my portfolio.

Kylie Minogue Anti Tour – Photos!

Kylie at The Palace

Kylie – Anti Tour, Melbourne

Kylie debuted her Anti Tour at Melbourne’s The Palace Theatre on Sunday night. With no backing dancers or elaborate sets and dressed down in a Vivienne Westwood Marilyn tee and Dolce & Gabbana denim shorts – Kylie could’ve been any singer and her band, except not many mid-level bands can sell 2,000 tickets within minutes. Such was the fever-pitch, that to ensure a good position, we had to hang about The Palace all day – and so I bring you these photos!

My highlight was when she embarked on the Impossible Princess-era tracks; Drunk and Say Hey – turning The Palace into a rave! And ‘the money shot’ – that was taken during Disco Down!

Seeing Kylie (for the first time) in such an intimate setting with a super fan, it’s a show I’ll remember for a long time. Kylie closed the show with the title track of her 1989 album Enjoy Yourself sporting original 1989 tour merchandise. Kylie proved that she can captivate the audience without any of her hits, bells or whistles.
