Australia finally has a heavy metal Queen! Billie-Jade (previously Diamond Noir) launches her solo career with her debut single, Horror Haus. The music video is pure gothic eye-candy, featuring corsets, glowing coffins, UV paint and snakes.

I was on set to photograph the cover, publicity photos and capture the behind the scenes goodness. Check out the full gallery here.

Boys gone wild in PDX

Boys in the hood

PDX hood life. Models: Brian, Greg & Steven

In Portland, I collaborated with local Instagrammer Steven Bustrin on a Vigilante web series. During October, Steven posted an ongoing saga of the tales of a disengaged young man in the big city, accompanied by a photograph, several of which were by me. Fun times re-imagining Portland as a city full of hoodlums.

Gallery below. View them larger on Flickr.

From the streets

Portrait from the streets of Portland

Portrait from the streets of Portland

There are around 4,000 people sleeping rough on the streets in Portland. The homeless situation in the USA is always a culture shock for me. I even saw 2x police officers issuing a ticket to a man sleeping in a car park, what an outrage! I’m not sure what the solution is, but what I learned is the best thing I could do was to overcome my fear and treat everyone with kindness and respect.

Beach Maternity Photoshoot

Maternity goes tribal

My first maternity shoot was with one of the most gorgeous mum-to-be! At 36 weeks, Tate rocked our beach-themed pregnancy photoshoot, along Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne.

Shot at sunset, I went for a glam, fun and down-to-earth vibe, which is exactly who Tate is. With some fabulous clothes from Jeanswest, I styled the wardrobe with fashion-forward pieces which have a tribal edge, yet not explicitly ‘maternity wear’. Check out the series below.
